The fashiony FitFlops developed in conjunction with Kirna Zabete owners Beth Buccini and Sarah Easley have finally arrived at their Soho boutique. The sandals are available in both black kid leather and faux snakeskin, and retail for $150 and $165, respectively. Why should you buy a pair? They supposedly tone the hell out of your legs while you walk. Sample PRage, "[the flops] feature a patent–pending microwobble board midsole that – biomechanically speaking – ‘loads’ your legs muscles more." Honestly, that sort of mumbo-jumbo gets us every time.
