Do FitFlops Really Work?

This week, I’m starting a two-week “Hot Mama Daily Diva Diet and Fitness Challenge” (I’ll post on the yoga classes I take and diet changes I make) and I’m planning to work any and all angles to shed some pounds before summer officially starts.

Fit Flops, $49.95

WalkStar FitFlops, on sale for $39.75 at Bath & Body Works

As my devoted readers already know (at least I hope I have some devoted readers), I test drove a pair of Skechers’ “Shape Ups” across the Brooklyn Bridge with mixed results. So in my search for a more fashionable, bum-toning fitness shoe I came across FitFlops.  Before I part with $40, however,  I want to know if they really:

  • Improve muscle tone
  • Increase muscle activity and circulation
  • Improve balance and posture
  • Burn calories

I tried on a pair of the thong sandals in Macy’s (also available online at Bath & Body Works and Victoria’s Secret) and they were pretty comfy in the store.  But I wonder if it’s a different story once they hit the concrete.  

Has anyone tried Fit Flops?  If so, let me know how you like ‘em.

    I did try every model, at least at the store but unfortunately my feet are to wide for them, even though I don’t usualy have this problem, so I guess they come narrow.

    I have been wearing Fitflops for the past year. I have them in both brown and black. I’m not sure if there has been any change in muscle tone, but I do know that my posture is better. They are comfortable and I get a lot of compliments about them. I also bought a pair for my best friend and my sister. They wear them daily!
