My style choices this year have been a lot more relaxed. I’m sure many of you can relate! With a major shift to working from home — really, doing almost everything at home, plus my super busy lifestyle, comfort has been key. But I’ve never been one to sacrifice style for comfort. So although I’ve shifted my fashions from office-style wear to more casual at-home options, I’m still committed to finding and rocking a mix of stylish yet comfortable pieces. Enter FitFlop.
I’ve been a fan of the brand since they launched their line of athletic flip flops back in 2007. After years of wearing uncomfortable shoes, I was happy to discover a brand that embraces comfort and truly excels at it. Over the years, they’ve expanded into a full collection of footwear with a range of silhouettes — with everything from boots to brogues to sneakers — that are equal parts chic and trendy, classic, and of course, insanely comfortable.
All FitFlop shoes are tested at the Human Performance Lab in Calgary, the world’s leading biomechanics research center. This is where they study the science behind the shoes: like how their shoes affect muscle activity and optimize pressure diffusion and body alignment. FitFlop’s footwear is designed to complement your body, your natural walking style, and make your feet feel happy at the end of the day. Who doesn’t love that?!
I’ve been wearing athletic shoes a lot more over the past few months, so I was excited when FitFlop reached out to me to try a pair of shoes from their Fall collection. I immediately spotted these standout FitFlop Rally Croc-Embossed Leather Sneakers and knew I wanted them on my feet.
I immediately was attracted to the classic, old school-style tennis shoe silhouette. It’s an essential style, which makes them pretty versatile to wear. I can easily rock my Rally’s with jeans or athleisure wear. I can also pair them with a skirt or dress, or even a pantsuit, thanks to the sleek croc-embossed leather, which gives them a luxe edge. And the maroon color is just perfect — and one of my favorites for Fall!
I own a few pairs of boots from FitFlop, so I’m already very familiar with the high level of comfort of the brand’s footwear. But these sneakers have to be the most comfortable ones I’ve ever owned. I wore them out this weekend and they make me feel like I’m walking on down pillows.
These FitFlop Rally sneakers are super light and are made with FitFlop’s Anatomicush midsoles. They feature an ultra-flexible cushion with an anatomically contoured footbed for maximum comfort, plus hardwearing, slip-resistant rubber pods at the front and back. Between the comfort, style, color, and texture, you can bet that I’m going to be wearing these all season.
Side note: Not only do I love FitFlop’s footwear, I also love the brand’s story! I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts this summer and really enjoyed listening to FitFlop’s founder, Marcia Kilgore, on NPR’s How I Built This. It was pretty cool to hear the brand’s origin and launch story.
FitFlop’s mission is if you want to live an inspired life, you’ve got to start with a great foundation. These comfy and stylish sneakers are the perfect foundation for my busy life and newly relaxed lifestyle!
