FITFLOPS!

Has anybody got a pair of these?

I've just found some men's ones and was thinking about getting some for my holiday but it just seems a lot to fork out for what is essentially a pair of flip flops lol.

Would love to hear feedback from people that have them.

Do they "work", are they comfortable or is it just a gimmick?

waste of money buy a pair of flipflops from Primark for £1.99 and you get the same effect and comfort.

To put it simply, no.

Think about it. To "get you fit" it must make you burn more calories and/or use muscles you wouldn't normally . The only way it can do this is to make you walk less efficiently. This is not a good thing. Two legged locomotion isnt the most efficient, but we have evolved to walk this way, and we work best this way.

IF the shoes force you to walk in a less efficient manner, then you could conceivably burn more calories. However, bear in mind, if you want to burn a meaningful amount of calories it would have to make walking very difficult, which is not what you want from shoes.

These shoes will not help you exercise. Unfortunately there is no miracle substitute for exercise.

Snake oil im afraid.

Just ask yourself, do you see young fit women like the adverts wearing them..................no, just fat ones.

That says to me that they are a waste of money.

Just try walking or cycling.

I have had a pair of fit flops for the last 2 years...and they look like new. I don't really know if they burn more calories or not, but they are the most comfortable footwear I have ever had. I wore them on holiday both in Sri Lanka and in Thailand, and was the only person in our group who did not suffer from sore feet/blisters etc In my case, they were certainly a great investmen

PS if buying from Cloggs don't forget quidco

I dont know if tehy slim you but they are uber comfy.

Im fat and have sciatica even my comfy crocs my back hurts quite quickly walking.
A few weeks ago i spent an afternoon at a country farm thing with my family and walked agood 1.5-2 miles around teh farm looking at all the different animals out in their fields without a twinge of pain.

THe first time i wore them the toe post did iritate but after that they awesome. I was lucky i got mine from shudoo last autumn so paid reduced price. But i am thinking of getting another pair if i can find a nice colour for £40.

If you or partner so advantage card points you can order instore in boots and pay in full with your points, unfortunately you cant part pay

I don't really want these because i think they'll make me thin lol, i just want them because i believe they'll be really comfy and a lot better than other cheap flip flops.

Think i might get a pair.
Now i just need to find where they are the cheapest!
