Tone and Trim Your Legs While Walking

I recently got myself a pair of this and I absolutely love it. Best pair of thongs a.k.a flip flops that I have ever used.

It definitely costs me a lot of $$$ but worth every penny. What makes it worth its weight in gold? It is said to give your legs a work out with every step you take. So, you are burning more calories while wearing this as well as giving some of the small muscles in your legs a bit of a workout.

Its uniquely built multi-density midsole activates muscles midstep to help tone your thighs, your calves and your glutes. In fact, Fit Flops are biomechanically engineered to absorb shock, lessen joint strain, and recreate the gait of barefoot walking - but with a powerful new built-in micro-wobbleboard workout-enhancing effect.

There is a video here which explains how the sole works. It is basically split into three sections. The end is a cushion heel area which absorbs 36% more shock. Mid section uses micro-wobble board technology which slows the eversion rate and requires more energy to walk. The toe section is firmer which promotes faster toe push off to maintain the same walking rate.

This has been one of the most comfortable thongs I've walked in. I can walk in it all day and it really absorbs the shock of hard surfaces so that my feet doesn't feel really sore and tired. The tiredness comes from my calves and bum which means that I am using those muscles!

I will gladly wear this 24/7 if I can, not to mention that the thicker sole adds a few more Cm's to my height. Now I just need to wait till there are other styles that are more suitable for work and formal situations.

Check out their website for more details.

Luv ~ Can walk in it all day and my heels don't feel the brunt of the shock of walking on hard surfaces. Ultra comfortable, increases my height. Works our your legs and bums.

Don't Luv ~ Limited styles and colours.

For many years I’ve had cracked heels that has caused me much discomfort. In summer, the problem becomes worse and I haven’t been able to wear open footwear as my cracked heels would get worse. I tried many different products but nothing seemed to work until I tried BENCOOLEN Virgin Coconut Oil Cracked Heel Repair Cream. Now I can wear my favourite pair of sandals for my summer walks. For those affected like me, I hope this helps. They have recently opened their online store at
