FitFlop Ballet Flats & High Top Sneakers in Awesome Uberknit
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.
Update! Fitflop just released a true ballet flat called the Allegro. We’ve got the scoop on fit and feel of this streamlined, chic style!
