Men and shoes. They go together like oil and water, or baby poo and my carpet.
Will has three pairs of shoes he wears on rotation, and when one of those gets a rip or a hole he just runs out and buys another pair exactly the same. There’s no fun in shoe shopping for him, that’s for sure.
So when the good people at FitFlop approached me to tell me about their new men’s styles I was intrigued. I’ve long been a fan of their super comfy canvas ballerinas (the yellow ones will be a staple for me this Spring) and was surprised to find the men’s shoes were stylish, too.
All FitFlop shoes are biomechanically engineered (a phrase any man will appreciate I’m sure) with a Microwobbleboard midsole, which can increase the activation of certain leg muscles, help diffuse underfoot pressure, absorb shock and reduce joint-loading profiles. Sciencey! Here are my picks for Will:
Probably the most similar to Will’s trusted Vans (of which Joey Essex wears exactly the same, mortification alert) are these nubuck suede FF Supertone in Slate Grey. They’re an iconic bestseller which are in the sale at the moment for only £36 – less than half price! They also come in a rather lovely inky blue colour.
Slightly more casual are these Supertops in inky blue. I love the retro feel to these shoes and the leather upper will mean they’ll last really well, even with my husband’s rate of shoe bashing. I’m also a huge fan of these in grass green (£33-£44), and at less than half price I’m sure you will be too.
Can you tell I’m a big fan of FitFlop’s shoes in Inky Blue? Black is boring, I say. These Flex shoes are a little smarter than my other picks but keep some interest with a pop of red in their laces and detailing. This style is again available in multiple colours as well as a high-top version, and is less than half price at only £50! Go get them men, and enjoy free shipping with the code FFBLOG1*!
Do you struggle to get decent footwear on the man in your life?
