  • Waiting list for the gladiator FitFlop hits thousands - have you signed up yet?

    This summer’s must-have shoe isn’t a slinky stiletto or the latest Marc Jacobs sandal design. No, in fact, it’s the FitFlop. And not just any FitFlop – a fashionable gladiator-style version, which retails for a cool £90. Oh, yes, and it isn’t even on sale yet.

    FitFlops first exploded onto the scene last summer, with the select group of women who managed to get their hands on a pair raving about them. This year, however, the hysteria has reached epic proportions, with over 1.2 million having been sold in the past 12 months.

    So, why all the fuss. Well, it isn’t just that they tone your legs and your bum, but that they’re so incredibly comfortable. Seriously, ask anyone with a pair and they’ll tell you they never take them off.

    Which might all explain why the new Aurelia style, which goes on sale via next month, already has a waiting list that runs into the thousands.

    Combining the comfort, toning and sheer must-have-ness of the regular FitFlop with a cool gladiator design, women all over the country are lining up to bag a pair.
