I read about these in an in-flight mag the other week and was quite interested... I finally found a pair in the local health shop with a whooping price tag attached of R799!!! Bloody hell they had better give me a rear end like Cameron Diaz for that price -- has anyone tried them??

Not heard of those Deebs.
I wonder if they are anything like these MBT shoes? I have been tempted to try them, just need to bite the bullet and find the dough...

Hmm, MBT shoes are much nicer looking than the fit-flops... the style of FitFlops that SA has chosen to bring out are just terrible -- The FitFlop - Styles (http://www.fitflop.co.za/styles.php)
Are they pricey Starts?

2 cents coming right up!!

Most people have a spinal and or structural idiosyncrasy. These types of shoes designed to "X" may actually cause discomfort or aggravation of a structural imbalance and muscular compensation. Before buying a high dollar shoe that is quite different from your natural stance or stride, I'd think on it.

DeeBee, Love LOVE the glasses!

Oh brill!! I'm so pleased you added your 2 cents Greenie. I was diagnosied with scoliosis when I was a teenager but have never really had any pain from it except when I sleep in an awkward position.

I believe that the FitFlops are only to be worn for a short amount of time each day until you become used to them -- a bit like exercising I'm told.

I think I'll ponder it a bit more.

LOL I freaked Wavey out with my glasses so I took them off!!

I have the MBT but do not wear because they hurt my heels. I went back to the store for a proper fitting and got the tongue pads but they did not do the trick. They are ugly but I would wear them for walks if they fit properly. They even have orange and hot pink now!

I think the fit flops (http://www.walkingshoesonline.com/fitflops) are a scam just like mbt shoes (http://www.mbtshoes.tv) and the rest. All you have to do is walk to feel better and lose weight. Just marketing hype, in my opinion.

Forget all this stuff about how it affects your back. Dee bee, let me know if they give you a Cameron Diaz BUTT. THAT'S what I want to KNOW!!! It might be worth a life time of blistered feet and a bad back to have a Cameron Diaz Butt.....

Had a quick chat with hubby thought I would let you know he says that Fit Flops will not benefit you if your scoliosis is caused because of a leg length discrepancy but they may help if it is caused by a muscular imbalance. Unfortunately this advice means nothing to me but hopefully makes some sense to you:h

They do boots now to for winter - very tempting as its getting a bit miserable in the UK. I would wear them all day if they give me the Cameron Diaz bum ;) FITFLOP - The Official Site ? Our range (http://www.fitflop.com/products/)

Differences

I was wondering if anyone can explain any differences between the fitflop (http://www.walkingshoesonline.com/fitflops) and mbt (http://www.walkingshoesonline.com/mbt_shoes) shoe? I can't decide which to buy. Thanks

i wear the fitflops all summer they are so comfortable i wear the boots all winter but i DONT have a bum like cameron, the mbt shoes are more exaggerated and quite hard to walk in again i dont think they have done anything to my bum but i did buy a pair of proper walking boots on the same principle and theta re sooo comfortable too, in the uk love those shoes website has lots on offer,

how interesting. are they unstable to the point of being dangerous if you run/jog on them?
