I was surprised to see a FitFlop married to what looked like an UGG, at a store in the East Village.
We’ve written about Fitflop booties before, but this photo shows you the other side of the shoe, the shaft of the boot uncuffed.
I kind of like them this way. Looking at the “slipper” appearance of it before, I was repulsed. Unrolled, they are a little bit cuter and taller. I kind of like how the shearling puffs out of the top, as well as the slanted top of the shaft.
This is a stain- and water-resistant sheepskin upper/shearling-lined bootie outfitted with a durable nonslip rubber sole and Agion technology for essential odor protection. Basically, Agion uses silver ions to attack smelly microbes and prevent those cells from multiplying.
Fitflops use Microwobbleboard technology, which means the midsole stimulates your leg muscles as you walk, giving you a mini workout in every step.
The heel height is 1.75 inches with a 1 inch platform, and the boot shaft is 5.5 inches.
Reviews online have been good, so if you’re a FitFlop kinda gal who also loves UGGs, I’m sure you’ll be thrilled by this bootie that you can stroll around the neighborhood doing errands in. I’m not a FitFlop gal, both because I’m skeptical of toning effects and because they’re too expensive for flipflops, but for this boot, with its materials, it might be reasonable.
