School drop off, school pick up, a visit to the shops, a doctor appointment, a stroll around the block with your baby, hanging up the washing, a quick walk to the mailbox; when you are a busy mum like me you are on your feet all day. Over the past year or so I realised that, as cute as they may be, those pretty pink thongs, sweet ballet flats and strappy sandals are not that great when it comes to support and cushioning and by wearing them I wasn’t doing my health a favour.
As you have probably read I recently started packing for our upcoming European holiday and as we’re planning to do a lot of walking I feared I had no other option but to buy a pair of comfortable, but rather unattractive, sport shoes to get me through. Now I have nothing against a nice pair of trainers but I personally prefer to keep them for the gym or a run so when I spotted these classy ballerinas from FitFlop I knew they were made for me.
After battling with sore feet for quite some time and even seeing a podiatrist I learnt my lesson: feet (even if hidden) are very important and it is worth investing in a proper pair of shoes. While I had heard of Fitflop before and seen their comfy take on the traditional flipflop I had no idea their range of ergonomically designed shoes included other styles too. Thanks to recent additions like shoes, boots, clogs and sandals FitFlop lovers can now enjoy that comfortable, luxurious FitFlop feeling whenever and wherever they want in a style that suits the occasion.
They say FitFlop offers a sport shoe feeling without the sport shoe look and I totally agree. The Due Leather Ballerina Shoes feel soft as slippers, comfortable like sport shoes and sturdy and supportive like walking shoes yet with the neutral, versatile look of a classic ballet flat (oh, and did I mention the small hidden heel for a bit of extra height?) They look fantastic with a pair of skinny jeans and a nice top and they can be worn with lots of different outfits so they’re a must for my suitcase.
A perfect comfy and casual Saturday outfit
Clearly I am not the only one who loves the look of these leather beauties, the first day I wore my new Fitflops I was even approached by a stranger at the supermarket who complimented me on my new shoes and wrote down the brand and style, does that make me a walking advertisement?
