There seems to be a new "FitFlop" on the block.
As a chiropodist I always try and keep up to date with shoe fashions and trends and I did a double take this morning when I saw the advertising material for a new product called the TrimSole. At first sight I thought it was the established company FitFlop bringing out a new design, but no. It is actually a different company, Direct Beauty Products, with their new product, called the Trimsole which to me looks rather similar to the existing FitFlop sandal. Look for yourself. From the photos there seems to be very little difference between them except the FitFlop sandal looks rather better in its finish.

I wonder if the new TrimSole will be as effective as FitFlop sandals in helping foot pain and plantar fasciitis. We will have to see. A lot of the forums at the moment seem to have gushing comments from people who have started to wear their new Trimsoles but we will have to see whether this is company PR advertising.
At the moment the TrimSole are only available in one style in red, black and white, whereas Fitflops have lots of styles and colours. Price: FitFlop sandals are around £35-45 depending on style and TrimSole are £19.95 each or 3 pairs for £49.95
