It’s never too late to get another pair of sandals to go with your walks, patio hangs, long days at the beach and more. Additionally, a high-quality sandal will last you for countless summers to come. If you’re on the hunt for your next sandal, keep reading to learn more about why we love this brand.
Why We Love FitFlop Sandals:
- Remarkably comfortable
- Preventative against several foot conditions
- Stylish and trendy
- Lightweight yet durable
It’s always important to remember to buy comfortable sandals. Many sandals cannot support walking for long periods and have little to no enhanced comfort technology in their designs. Luckily, FitFlop sandals give you the convenience of quickly slipping your sandals on while keeping your feet healthy and supported. You won’t have to choose between comfort and simple convenience again!
So, why are they so comfortable? Designed by an in-house biomechanist, we have to give credit to the science behind the shoe’s construction: FitFlop sandals have a biomechanically engineered midsole that stands out from other sandals. Called the original Microwobbleboard FitFlop midsole, it’s made of three layers of cushioning that are anatomically targeted toward specific areas of the foot to support the foot’s weight-bearing areas and diffuse pressure throughout the foot. This leaves your foot feeling softly cushioned, while helping to reduce foot pain (more on that below).
FitFlop’s dressier sandals have Duocomff technology, featuring two layers of supportive cushioning. You can also enjoy a simple flip-flop style sandal made with iQushion comfort technology. FitFlop’s genius designs allow for proper shock absorption, even pressure distribution, and all-day comfort. Whether you have wide feet, narrow feet, a high arch, or a flat foot, FitFlop sandals will fit perfectly!

It’s always best to forget low-quality sandals and invest in a pair that will do the most for your foot health. High-quality sandals provide people with protection against common foot conditions, and FitFlops are no exception! In fact, FitFlop sandals have even been awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association’s Seal of Acceptance for promoting good foot health.
Furthermore, FitFlop sandals can reduce your risk of sustaining a foot injury and experiencing foot pain, thanks to the science behind the Microwobbleboard midsole technology. It is especially helpful for people with plantar fasciitis.
Below are a handful of reasons to choose FitFlop when shopping for summer sandals:
- Prevent blisters, a common summer foot condition.
- Avoid foot and ankle pain by giving your feet proper support.
- Lower your risk of injury, such as a twisted ankle, ligament tear, sprain, fracture, etc.
- Web MD notes that FitFlop sandals have also reduced symptoms commonly felt with heel spurs, arthritis, plantar fasciitis and back pain.
- Prevent foot conditions and pain caused by flat feet or high arches.
Let’s be honest; everyone wants their shoes to look trendy. And that includes our sandals! FitFlop incorporates comfort into every design while also understanding current trends. Their designs for women come in virtually every colour you can imagine. These sandals also come in some funky styles that include feathers, leaves and flowers as thongs. If you’re into a more simple look, the classic toe-post thong is always available.
FitFlop sandals also come in more elegant styles suitable for work or for when you’re out and about in Toronto. They have several back-strap options in numerous colours and designs and slide sandals with chunky heels. FitFlop also designs shoes with adjustable straps, and many are made with leather.

Lightweight and Durable
Your sandals should never feel clunky or heavy. And with FitFlop sandals, that won’t be an issue. They have a midsole made of EVA, a special synthetic material that is known for being exceptionally lightweight, as well as shock-absorbent and cushioned. This makes FitFlop sandals perfect for a busy, on-the-go lifestyle, so you can travel smoothly from point A to point B without feeling weighed down by your shoes. FitFlop also designs its sandals with flexibility in mind, allowing your feet to breathe and move freely.
Even better – their airy, lightweight feel doesn’t come at the expense of durability and sturdiness. After all, you need a strong sandal for spending your summer days on the go. FitFlop sandals can withstand long walks, days at the beach, and many more activities that might have you on your feet all day. With FitFlop’s sturdy construction and durable rubber outsole, you won’t have to worry about wear and tear after only wearing them for a short time!
