Fitflop Allegro

A Fitflop ballet flat to beat all! That’s the Allegro. The company recently released this slim, chic beauty and the fans are going wild, including us at Barking Dog Shoes. We appreciate Fitflop for sending us the Allegro and Allegro fringe to review. With spring around the corner, we’re looking forward to shedding our wool socks and slipping into something more streamlined.

Beth and I tried our hand (foot?) at a video review. We’re noobs, so don’t have professional lighting and sound equipment, but we understand comfortable shoes. We’ll keep trying til we get into the groove of video reviews.

What we like about the new Fitflop ballet flat, Allegro and Allegro fringe:

  • Roomy forefoot makes it bunion-friendly
  • Elasticized heel prevents slippage
  • Good cushioning from toe to heel considering it’s a flat
  • Flexible and lightweight
  • Classic style goes with everything

A few things to consider before ordering:

  • Only three half sizes. Kirsten’s 10 in the Allegro fringe feels a tad roomy, perhaps order down a half size if you’re on the smaller end of your size.
  • Arch support is moderate. While the footbed is removable, we’re not sure if this low profile shoe would fit an orthotic.
  • Best for medium to wide feet, not for narrow widths!

    Kristin, how did this shoe feel with your hallux limitus?

  2. Mary says:

    I love Fitflops and wear them exclusively. I have at least 30 pair, including sandals, flats, sneakers, boots, etc. I need the extreme padding they provide for the balls of my feet that have lost their fatpads. I get nervous when styles like the flats you reviewed come out because I fear they will stop making the very thick and padded styles I need to wear. There aren’t many styles left with their original Microwobbleboard sole, except for thong sandals. I’m wondering if I should be hoarding to I’ll have a lifetime supply.

    I really want to buy the Allegro fringe — they are $130 plus $16 shipping on fit flop’s website. So $146 for a ballet flat. Wow. I checked Zappos, Amazon, Nordstrom and they have the little ballet flat but not the fringe. At least with Zappos I could get free shipping. Disappointing!

    They have huge spring sales. I got them for 60 Canadian in June. That said styles and colours were limited.
