I hope my readers don’t mind when I stray away from Dream Dinners topics. I try to keep all of my posts related to food/healthy eating/cooking in some way, shape or form. But this post is just a little different in that it’s not about something you can eat – it’s about something you wear…but it’s something you can wear to try to help you be healthy.
I first heard about Fit Flops sometime last year, when everyone was raving about how great they are, and I finally took the plunge a few weeks ago. Every day, I walk to and from the metro, so I figured that if these flip flops will make my muscles work harder, then so much the better. I’m all for trying to find ways to get in my exercise without actually having to exercise. 🙂
I don’t think I’ve walked far enough for them to get my legs sore by themselves, but they are by far, one of the most comfortable flip flops I’ve ever worn. That inch or so of rubbery cushion on your feet actually CUSHIONS each step you make. The soles are a little bouncy and soft, but still provide great support. I’m not worried that the straps are going to cause blisters or that my feet will start hurting after awhile.
The only tiny negative I have is that there is a small support bump right underneath where your big toe connects to your foot, and that takes some getting used to.
