I just bought my first pair of Fitflops yesterday and *sigh* I think I want another one. I am not the type of person who spends that much on “what’s in” but I’m willing to spend more for the love of comfort and convenience. I’ve heard a lot of good feedback about this footwear but never got the courage to make a huge purchase just for a pair of 1 footwear.
Fastforward January 2011. I got pregnant and gained weight. Hubby knew how my feet and legs hurt whenever we go out so he agreed that I’ll buy a pair right away. Told him how it works and he saw how beneficial it was for me to invest in a good pair of footwear.
FitFlop footwear is biomechanically engineered to help tone and tighten your leg muscles while you walk in them. Studies at the Centre for Human Performance at London South Bank University (LSBU) show that normal walking in FitFlop sandals* can help:
- – help increase leg and bottom muscle activity (up to 30%). (so you feel less ache in your hips and knees),
- – absorb more shock than a normal shoe (up to 22%),
- – help realign ground force reaction closer to your joints,
- – reduce foot pressure.
FitFlop footwear features patent- pending muscle-loading Microwobbleboard™technology and was independently tested at Salford University in Manchester by Dr Philip Graham Smith & Richard Jones to verify their pro-muscle activity prior to launch. (FitFlop has also been approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association – APMA.
True enough, I noticed the difference RIGHT AWAY. No more feet, ankle and leg pains and it allowed me to go malling for hours!
Hubby was so pleased that I used his money wisely. My plans in buying cubic zirconia rings online has to be set aside first 🙂
