London South Bank University (LSBU) studies show that FitFlop footwear can increase*:
· bottom-muscle activation up 30% longer
· quadricep activation by up 19% more
· hamstring activation by up to 16% more
· lower leg muscles (NOT calves) by up to 11% more
*When compared to a control shoe. Case studies were performed on Microwobbleboard™ technology over a 48-month period by Dr David Cook, Senior Lecturer in Biomechanics, and Darren James at the Centre for Human Performance at London South Bank University (LSBU).
FitFlop footwear features patent-pending, muscle-loading Microwobbleboard™ technology to increase the time that your muscles are engaged every single time you take a step. FitFlop Microwobbleboard™ technology was engineered in 2006 by Dr David Cook and Darren James at London South Bank University (LSBU).
FitFlop sheepskin boots should be snug, but not uncomfortable. They will give a bit as they mould to your feet. These boots have been designed to be worn barefoot to maximise the cushioning and warmth of the sheepskin, and to best deliver the famous Microwobbleboard™ workout. (However, we recommend regular pedicures to keep long nails from tearing holes into the boot.)
