For all you heel fanatics already dreading the thought of lingering in vertiginous Louboutins or Choos at the countless summer parties yet to come, and pinching yourselves mid-party to distract from the pain in your sore feet, we’ve managed to track down the latest addition to the family of shoes that promise ‘a workout while you walk’, whist tending to heel ravaged tootsies.
Enter the new Capsule 12 collection from FitFlop. But before you switch off with visions in your mind of unsightly, flat footwear and start dreaming of a pair of pins resembling Gisele’s, let us explain.
The Capsule 12 collection consists of luxury leather sneakers, ballerinas and sports-luxe sandals, and is designed to work twice as hard; tending to the footwear needs of heel-addicted style mavens and helping to tone up. Still not convinced? Read on.
Introducing the Uno: a ballerina in five different colours with a hidden wedge for added height; Uno Sneaker: the Uno’s slim line sibling available in four colours and the Gladda: the half sneaker, half gladiator sandal, also available in four colours.
Making it fashionable to sport a FitFlop pair, the Capsule 12 collection has been designed with a biomechanically engineered triple-density Biomimetix™ midsole, which is ‘an ultra-comfy feel on a sleek silhouette’ to you and me. So, we guess it’s now possible to sport ‘good shoes’ (read: flats) without destroying your high-flying heeled reputation.
Bringing with it the original FitFlop qualities: shock absorption, release from underfoot pressure and activating, more leg muscles for that famed ‘workout while you walk’, the Capsule 12 collection will do all of this, but stylishly.
