We first told you about FitFlops in a July 2008 Beauty Tip Today article.
Back then we were looking at the FitFlop Sandal, the 'gym-in-a-sandal' shoe designed in the United Kingdom. The exercise FitFlops quickly gained popularity around the globe.
Make way now, for the FitFlop Clog.
One more way to get a workout through fall and winter as you walk with the specially designed FitFlop muscle-toning Microwobbleboard technology.
These new FitFlop Clogs are really cute and come in shearling, suede, and ultra-felt. We are showing you the GoghII Clog in grey ultra-felt. The Gogh II is featherweight and comfortable, and also water and stain repellent with a skid-resistant all rubber outsole.
You can find FitFlops here in the U.S. at a number of shoe stores and online at sites like Amazon.com and Bliss.com. In fact, Bliss.com is offering the new FitFlop Clog for $74.95 and free shipping, as advertised in their latest catalogue.
So how exactly does the FitFlop technology work?
According to the FitFlop website:
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 LSBU show that normal walking in FitFlop sandals(1) can help:
- increase leg, calf and gluteal muscle activity,
- improve your posture,
- mimic the gait of barefoot walking but with more muscle load,
- improve muscle tone.
FitFlop sandals wearers have also reported relief from plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, chronic back pain, sciatica, osteoarthritis, RLS (restless leg syndrome), scoliosis and degenerative disc disease.
We happen to love clogs, and we think this is another way to strengthen our muscles and enhance our exercise routine. In other words, walking around in FitFlops can't hurt, so we give these new clogs the green light.
Imagine, you could actually lose weight wearing these FitFlops, and at the same time, develop a lengthy walking routine, and really make some killer curves out of your legs and buttocks?
