Are FITKICKS shoes comfortable?

Yes! AND the form-fitting sole becomes even more comfortable over time. Fitkicks for women, men, and kids all share the same trademarked Flex Form sole technology that allows free range of motion and contoured comfort.

Are FITKICKS shoes appropriate for beach or pool wear?

Fitkicks can be used on beaches and in pools, though you may experience some snags or runs of the upper spandex material in those conditions. The elastic opening high on the foot helps keep sand and silt from building up inside, and the tough but comfortable soles help protect from sharp objects and rough surfaces.

Are FITKICKS shoes washable?

Yes. Fitkicks can be spot cleaned with soapy laundry detergent, and then lay flat to air dry.

Can you tell me more about FitKicks shoe sizes?

The manufacturer of fit kicks shoes lists these sizes in UK shoe equivalents:

Small 3-4 6.5-7.5 6-7.5 3-4
Medium 4.5-5.5 8-9 8-9.5 4.5-5.5
Large 6-7 9.5-10.5 10-12 6-7
XL 7.5-8.5 11-12 12.5-1.5 7.5-8.5

(All Sizes in UK Standard)

While the uppers are spandex and stretchy, that toe patch is microfiber and does not stretch much. As long as your feet and ankles are pretty much “medium,” you should be ok in a true size.

Sometimes a smaller pair can be a little bit tight on the toes of “in between” sizes, so we recommend ordering one size up if you are in between. If your feet are wider, thicker, sensitive to tightness in the toes, or otherwise have a disease process such as diabetes, then you might consider ordering one size larger.

What materials are used in the FITKICKS shoes?

The upper part of FitKicks is 100% spandex with a microfiber/PU reinforcing patch on the toes. The soles are PVC with BK mesh, and the inner sole is EVA. All other materials are a combination of polyester, elastic, and nylon.

Are the FITKICKS shoes vegan?

Yes. The reinforcing toe patch is a combination of microfiber and PU, with is a (Poly) Synthetic Leather, a man-made material that will represent the look and feel of genuine leather but in fact is NOT leather.

Is it normal for the inner sole of my FITKICKS to move around?

While we heard this complaint early in the product life-cycle, it is no longer common. The manufacturer addressed that issue in production. We have heard that an inexpensive product, called Shoe Goo, will fix the problem quickly and easily. Shoe Goo is widely available at stores such as Walmart and Target.
