Mumsnet edit: the best of FitFlop 2020
FitFlops are synonymous with comfy sandals, but did you know about their range of snug, comfortable closed-toe shoes, boots and trainers? To inspire you, check out Mumsnetters' favourite picks for styles that will keep your feet supported, come rain or shine. Plus, with the current FitFlop sale, there are some real steals out there. You're welcome.
Lena Patent Loafers, £80
Soft patent faux-leather, ultra-light and slipper-comfortable – could the Petrina loafers be the perfect shoe? They certainly tick lots of boxes, being smart enough for work or for dressing down with black jeans at the weekend, and can even be glammed up for a night out.Buy now
Sneakerloafer, £54 (were £90)
FitFlop Sneakerloafers look smart like loafers, but feel as comfy as trainers – a winning combination in our book. These loafers are the perfect option if you have to be on your feet a lot at work but trainers aren't an option. Although this black style is a great, practical option, there are lots of jazzier designs if your workplace is less formal or you want to get some wear out of them at the weekend too.
Due to popular demand, currently only available up to a size 5
“They are fab – really comfy.”
“These are incredibly comfortable shoes which are suitable for both work and for the commute. I like to walk as much as possible during the working day but don't want to drag another pair of shoes around to change into.”
“I have been looking everywhere for decent looking work shoes that you can actually walk and now I have found them!”Buy now
Carita High-Top Sneakers, £49 (were £110)
Cool and super-comfortable, these chunky 90s-inspired sneakers are sure to become your school-run go-to. And due to the special FitFlop super-cushioned Microwobbleboard™ midsoles, you might never want to take them off.
They also come in white and, if you're feeling particularly funky, two multicoloured versions: a turquoise/purple and dark blue/pink.
“I love FitFlop shoes, I have their sneakers, Oxford shoes and ballet pumps.”Buy now

Marbleknit Mary Janes, from £29 (were £85)
Want a ballerina style shoe that is as flexible as a trainer? These FitFlops might just be for you. We love the mesh on these Mary Janes and the three colour options (mink white as well as the two featured here). And for £30 they're an absolute steal.
“My Mary Jane FitFlops took a real battering and lasted me well over a year as a community midwife. I was always being complimented on them and they were wonderfully supportive for running between visits and clinics.”Buy now
Signey Mixte Leather Knee-High Boots, £79 (were £160)
Knee-high boots are a winter wardrobe staple; they look as good with skinny jeans as they do with skirts and dresses, and they help keep your legs snug as the weather gets colder. The Signey boots are pure equestrian chic and feature an inside zip for pulling-off ease.Buy now
F-Sporty Perf Scoop-Cut Leather Sneakers, £49 (were £85)
These leather trainers are very popular with Mumsnetters thanks to their sleek design and superlight, ultra-flexible non-slip sole. It's worth investing in the shoes you wear all day every day; plus, a good pair of leather trainers can look surprisingly smart when paired with tailored trousers or midi dresses. But be warned, once you've tried them, going back to regular old trainers will feel hideously uncomfortable.
“These. Every time these ones. I have last year's (slightly different) model and they have carried me comfortably (literally) through two summers. They go with everything and even though white shoes are supposed to make your feet look big, these make my size 7 trotters look tiny. I wear them with dresses, shorts, trousers, jeans. I wear them in the town, on the beach and on long walks. I absolutely love them and will get a different colour (even though the white ones are still going strong) for next summer.”
“They have a bit of a 1950s bowling shoe feel to them – which I love – and they look like they'd work brilliantly with jeans or chinos for autumn weather before the boots have to come out.”Buy now
Allegro Leather Toe-Cap Ballerinas, £80
Although versatile, ballet pumps are often too uncomfortable to wear for a full day. Luckily, FitFlop have paired their famously supportive soles with classic ballerina uppers (and jazzy toe-caps) to create the ultimate workwear shoe. Don't be deterred by the thicker sole – these pumps are light as air and very flexible.
“I love my FitFlops – they're all I have worn since spinal surgery. Very comfy but not frumpy. I have the ballerinas and wear them every day for work. I also have FitFlop Mukluks, trainers and sandals. Obsessed, me?”Buy now
Maria Leather Ankle Boots, £120
Mumsnet users have been loving these Maria ankle boots this year. Low-cut with an inside zip, they're a great between-seasons shoe. Plus, they're available in three colours, so there's a style to suit everyone.
“We are a FitFlop household. I have various feet problems (bunions and neuromas), and FitFlops are the only things I can wear without thinking about my feet. I walk miles and miles in them. My husband has plantar fasciitis and they really help his feet too. I've currently got four pairs of slides, two pairs of ankle boots from a previous season, and I'm hankering after a pair of these.”Buy now
Mukluk Shorty Ankle Boots, £120
Fitflop's answer to UGG boots, the Mukluk Shorty boots are as snug and comfortable as your favourite sheepskin boots, but much more supportive thanks to their seamless arch contour and those Microwobbleboard™ midsoles. Although they have suede uppers, they're actually pretty rugged thanks to their water-repellant treatment and non-slip soles. Wear them with the sheepskin cuff rolled down or flipped up depending on your mood.
“My poor Mukluk boots are sadly nearly dead. They’ve been my favourite boots for over four years. I had to stitch them up this spring as I couldn’t bear to throw them away…”Buy now
