In 2007 FitFlop was a start-up making unique, incredibly foot-friendly flip flops.  In ten short years, the brand has become to a go-to for comfort-seeking shoe shoppers looking for everything from sporty kicks to business-casual shoes, all loaded with carefully engineered comfort features. So we took notice when we first saw this FitFlop ballet flat and high top sneaker.  The combination of the brand’s sublime soles with stretchy “Uberknit” uppers gave us high hopes for wearers with bunions, hammertoes, high insteps, plantar fasciitis and other challenging foot issues. Now that reviews are coming in, it’s clear – these shoes are winners!   Both the FitFlop ballet flat and high top sneaker are lightweight, supportive, and comfortable right out of the box.  And their stretchy uppers are forgiving in all the ways we’d hoped.  They’re both slip-ons –perfect for those who don’t like to fuss with fasteners.  (Note: the FitFlop high top’s laces are adjustable.)

We’ll let online reviewers say the rest: “From the moment they went on I was in heaven.”  “I can’t recommend these highly enough!”  “They look great and wearing them is like walking on a cloud.” “I just walked on vacation 63 miles in these and my feet didn’t hurt at all.”  “Very, very comfortable-finally a shoe that offers comfort and support and accommodates a bunion and hammertoes–all the perfect combinations.”  “This shoe fits and feels like a slipper, with a great sole.”

The FitFlop Uberknit line features the brand’s new Anatomicush midsole which is flexible and light, hugs the contours of your feet, and has a “motion-empowering”  grid of flex lines underneath.   Both the FitFlop Ballet Flat and the FitFlop High Top Sneaker come in sizes 5-11, with select half-sizes. Available at FitFlop.com, Zappos, Nordstrom, and Amazon.

    I’m so glad I stumbled upon your blog a few days ago. I just ordered the FitFlop ballet flat. It looks like the perfect summer shoe.

    I might have given the flat a try except for the white trim/sole. Why oh why do so many shoes have that white bottom. Neutral or darker is my preference.

  3. Maryjane says:

    Does the model even have a bunion, I mean a real bunion….to me it would be very helpful to see these shoes on someone with a bunion to even know if it’s worth trying it out. Thanks!! I do love this blog

  4. Deborah says:

    I agree about the white soles. It takes the shoe to a more casual place.

    I have some sketchers that I love but hate the white sole.

  5. Ellie says:

    Thanks for this post! I ended up ordering the FitFlop Superballerinas rather than the knit ones, but they are fabulously comfy and perfectly chic. Like plain black ballet flats, except with tons of arch support and a funky, but discrete black platform sole.

  6. Irene says:

    I would love to know how the top foto has a cute little bow when the actual shoe doesn’t come with it. I’m wondering if that’s an added feature? I’m not seeing it anywhere and I absolutely love it. If anyone knows how I can do that, reach out!

      I know. I realized after I posted the photo that the current FitFlop ballet shoes don’t have it!! Ugh. Perhaps it’s a UK version of the shoe? Or maybe it was the first season style and the bow got discontinued? Let me look into it.

    I so appreciate your reviews and hard work on this blog. However, although Fit Flops are cute and comfortable, I could never, ever recommend this brand after my experience. I have been trying to get a refund for items that were returned more than a month ago! Buyer beware!!!! Horrible, horrible company to deal with. I have sent dozens of emails and placed dozens of calls – simply impossible to get any service. Worst company I have ever dealt with.

    Thought your other readers might want to be aware that the shoes may be good but the service absolutely sucks.
