I am all about having a great pair of footwear for working out and today I wanted to share with all of you this pair of comfortable shoes that I’ve been loving lately. Let me introduce you to FITKICKS, an active lifestyle footwear that is lightweight and versatile for anyone on the go or looking for something to be comfortable with. They are the “Anywhere” shoe!
Let me start by saying that these are not traditional “workout” or “anywhere” type of shoes and when I first seen them I was both intrigued but also wondered how well they work. Since I have issues with my ankles, I’m always looking for something lightweight that I can use on the elliptical when working out or something at the gym that will not add any extra bulk or weight to my feet. At first glance, they remind me of reef shoes, which is something you see a lot here in Hawaii. But, once I got the pair in my hands and tried them on – I was instantly appeased and excited to give them a go.
The Fitkicks range in cost from about $19.99 – $24.00 and come in a variety of different colors and designs. I received the light grey with lavender trim which suits me since you know I love my purples. The pair I have retails for $19.99 and comes in four colors in this specific design. You can find them in a range of sizes from Small – Extra Large, I have the Large and normally use a size 8 1/2 shoe. They fit comfortably and easily slip on without any problems.
Fitkicks claim is that you can slip into these comfort kicks and use them for a variety of things… traveling, yoga, cruising, exercise, walking, at the beach, dancing, as high heel relief, running every day errands, water sports and just overall hanging out. These awesome little shoes take up very little room and are easy to fold and take with you – making them ideal for keeping in a gym bag, traveling with or in my case, keeping in my bag in the car for those days I want to go for a walk or run. They are made of durable flex form soles and are extra breathable which make them comfortable on hot days – I didn’t get sweaty at all, even after a long workout. They have great ergonomic comfort and are so easy to slip on and off.
Since FITKICKS offers such a unique design and ergonomic fit, you get full movement potential with your shoes. The Durable FlexForm sole naturally contours your feet for free range of motion making it the perfect active wear shoe. Since our lives keep us on the go I love that these make it so convenient to keep your “workout gear” with you – no bulky shoes to lug around. They are the perfect fold-and-go portable shoe. And, with technology that is specifically engineered to provide a natural contour, the FITKICKS are comfortable.
The FITKICKS also has a protective toe guard that prevents dragging and excessive wear points which make it perfect for anyone to use. And, these awesome things are washable and dry-able, hello genius!
Women Shoe Size: Small (5 – 6 1/2), Medium (7-8), Large (8 1/2 – 9 1/2), X Large (10-11)
After having these for a few weeks, I’m absolutely loving them. As I mentioned before, they are very comfortable and lightweight which makes it ideal for me when working out and are my go-to shoes for when I am on the elliptical. FITKICKS offers so many other designs and footwear that I have a list of a few that my eyes are set on like the Energy Sidekicks Foldable Flats, FITKICKS in Black/Grey, and a pair for each of my sons (since they have FITKICKS Kids and a pair for my husband (yay for Men’s sizes too). I’m not only impressed with how well these fit, how comfy they are, but also the fact that they are reasonably priced and offer you so much versatility for use. As a mother of three very active boys, these shoes allow me to keep on my toes while chasing after them and I can use them at a variety of locations. I love that they offer light support and are really cool.
If you are someone who works out and is looking for some new footwear, I highly suggest checking these babies out. You can find them at: http://www.fitkicks.us/. Check them out and see if you can find a pair (or two) for you or someone you love. I have my eyes on a few more and one specifically to wear around the house, so I’ll be heading over to the site soon too.
