FitFlops: Some have described them as “miracle shoes,” a “workout while you walk,” claiming that FitFlops have slimmed their hips and thighs.
What are FitFlop Sandals? They are a special kind of athletic sandal that have been immensely popular in Great Britain. Now they have strutted across the pond and Americans are singing their praises.
What is the FitFlop’s fat-buring secret? The mid-sole’s density is uneven – and that’s a good thing, because it forces your leg muscles to flex to keep you balanced, just as they are forced to when you are barefoot. That flexing while you walk works your thigh and calf muscles, ensuring an automatic toning workout.
Don’t think you this unevenness will make you fall over. Your feet do the same thing naturally when you are barefoot. Most shoes take away the body’s need to balance itself; the FitFlop returns your feet to nature. This benefit took years of research on muscular coordination and biomechanics.
While the mid-footbed is the most significant part of the FitFlop, its other parts enhance the efficacy of the mid-footbed: The toe section provides a faster step speed, while the heel area speeds the foot into the purposefully less-stable footbed. The FitFlop is also widely agreed to be better looking and more affordable than other fitness sandals.
