FitFlop launched the original Walkstar sandal in 2007 to be soon loved by celebrities, fans, and customers around the world. This June, FitFlop is back with a restyle of its iconic model.
About The Brand
Marcia Kilgore developed the FitFlop project back in 2006 in collaboration with expert biomechanists Dr. Dave Cook and Dr. Darren James of LSBU, the London South Bank University. The first model, the FitFlop™ original Walkstar sandal, launched the brand in 2007 and it revolutionised women’s footwear by integrating wellness into walking with a sporty look, pop colours and superior ergonomic comfort. The brilliance behind it? FitFlop’s patented seamless triple-density Microwobbleboard™ technology, is engineered for a well-supported heel strike, with a high underfoot contact mid-step and a medium density ‘push off’ platform in the front of the sole, so it propels the walker forward and brings a feeling of natural movement, helping the body move as intended.
Meet The 2021 Walkstar Collection
A holiday essential. Set to be the go-to footwear this summer, the 2021 Walkstar collection maintains the classic silhouette and sporty aesthetic with striped webbing straps of the classic. The new Walkstar is available in original red, bronze, rose gold, navy and black, and it is joined by a capsule collection in leather. The new 2021 Walkstar launches globally early this June online and in selected retailers. It will be available in UK sizes 3-9, with a price range from £60, for the classic webbing style, to £70 for the leather version in black, light tan, and beige. The limited-edition leather Walkstar with gold-foil embossing will be available at £100.
FitFlop founder Marcia Kilgore says: 'The year we’ve all just been through has cemented for us that health is wealth, comfort is key and what’s really important is feeling good. Our Walkstar sandals are like a yoga class for your feet. Slip a pair on for a daily ‘reboot’ for your alignment and your whole body will feel the difference, they’re literally happiness at your feet!'
