Gladiator Aurelia FitFlops: Love It or Hate It?

The latest craze to hit London are these Gladiator Aurelia FitFlops (price TBD). Set to sell exclusively at Kirna Zabete and Net-A-Porter, FitFlops are designed to miraculously trim and tone legs. This hybrid of fashion and fit is sure to turn heads; whether in a good or bad way is still up for debate. The UK loves them, do you?

I'm reading the negatives on the shoe. I own them and I LIKE THEM. When you think about it, they are a an ancient Roman male professional fighters' shoe design, Right? When I went to South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa, Calif.), and I was cornered by the sales fashionistas FIVE TIMES and foto'd by phone three times (dudes usually don't get this treatment)! The Guess store manager whipped out her camera and videoed me requesting that I toe-pose the shoes (man ,that was wierd)and describe the "what name, who made, where bought....etc. I am going to email the maker and recommend branding with makers like Loius Vitton, or Bernardo, for example. The soles really do what they are designed to. And for you girlies, Jackie O pink should be a colour option.

For whatever reason I've been a life long gladiator sandal lover. It might have something to do with the fact that I hate hate hate my ankles beyond all reason. Anyway, I went nuts when I saw these,(MAX ANKLE COVERAGE HOORAY) and so ordered both colors.(Hello- is there a head examiner available?) I'm 5'11ish with most of my height in my tanned and lankish pins, so that should help. Stay tuned - I'll letcha how it goes!

I do like them!!! I have the regular fitflops from bath&body works i think, and they do work your muscles good. These are a cuter version though!

They remind me of the sock sandals that I didn't really like, so I voted "Hate." And how do they keep you fit? I don't understand that part at all. I do like gladiators though.

I almost voted Love, however the more I look at these shoes the more I hate them (so my finally vote was Hate.)

Those would look ridiculous on me, but I think all gladiator-type shoes are fabulous on the right person.

I want the fit-flops (to see how they work or if) but all the ones they have are ugly. These ones are at least a little better looking.

they should engineer cuter flats that tone the legs. I'd be all over those!

I hate flip flops, but I bought some shoes similar to these by Jeffrey Campbell and I love them. I get a lot of weird looks but I like ugly fashion.

these are very interesting because i've only seen fit flops come in a sporty style. they also stick out like a sore thumb and the wearer might as well include a shirt that says "I'M WEARING FIT FLOPS!!!!!!!!" this is great for those ladies who have been hesitant to try them because they aren't always wearing athletic clothing and i guess the idea of fit flops would be to easily combine working out with your daily life. i can imagine someone wearing these almost anywhere without it being so obvious they're meant for exercise. though i have a hard time liking fit flops or gladiator sandals, i like that the women who do have another alternative.

I love flat sandals and gladiator style, but I hate these because of the thick upper part.
