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.
