Someday, a shoe will exist that looks glamorous and also supports the foot through days of trailing around the foreign cities…but until then, we have the FitFlop — which always reminds me of the phrase “fin flop” as used in a particularly funny episode of AbFab, but never mind. Just a few years ago, I went to Barcelona for a week. As Spain is an HQ for the fine shoes, I brought along many beautiful and (I thought) comfortable sandals for walking around in style. After one day of zipping around to see Roman ruins, fine shopportunities, and excellent food (not to mention the break at 11 a.m. for cava) I gave up and wore my FitFlops. I felt embarrassed at first, and several Spanish ladies of the older and more proper variety glared at my feet, but never mind — I was happy! So I will never scoff at the FitFlop!
