Mindanaoan won a new pair of Fitflops! Thank you Fitflop Philippines!

One of Mindanaoan‘s good investments last year was to buy a pair of Fitflops. Widely known as one of broadcasting mogul Oprah Winfrey‘s “favorite things,” FitFlop makes it possible for the wearer to “get a workout while you walk.” Fitflop is that fun flip flop with a gym built in! My flair for unusual things that offer more value and my curiosity as to why Oprah endorsed this brand compelled me to finally buy a pair (despite the pretty hefty price tag) last year…and I must say, it was money well-spent!

I bought a pair of bronze Electra Fitflops and I just love using them. Admittedly, my feet and legs got sore the first few times I wore my pair of Fitflops but I took it as a positive sign — at least the product worked! I could feel the tension along my calves, knees, shins, soles and even thighs! I learned that the innovative Fitflop sandals make use of the groundbreaking microwobbleboard mid-sole which engages the lower body muscles more as one walks. These groundbreaking materials make it possible for the wearer to have shapely legs and thighs. Not bad, di ba? I mean, kung lalakad at susuot ka na lang din ng sandals, why not wear a pair that can produce benefits, right? The soreness eventually wore off and now I wear my Fitflop with so much ease. I wear it as often as I can — when I do groceries, go to the mall and even when I play badminton or try the longest speed zip line in all of Asia! My trusty pair of Fitflop is now really one indispensable part of my wardrobe.

Anyways, as I was contemplating on buying a new pair, I learned of Fitflop Philippines‘ “Tag A Photo” contest. Joining it was so easy — all I had to do was add Fitflop Philippines on Facebook, take a photo of myself wearing Fitflop, tag Fitflop Philippines and then let them know why I love wearing my Fitflops!

Here was my entry:


My Fitflops are stylish, comfortable to wear and part of my favorite tools as a photographer. I can wear them wherever, whenever. My feet never get sore and even if I bend, lie down, crouch or crawl (!) just to get that perfect shot, I know that my back is supported because of my ever trusty pair of Fitflops! This photo was taken last July 16, 2009 when I served as a back-up photographer. I helped cover a special surprise 50th birthday party thrown by three daughters for their parents.

My entry won me a new pair of Fitflops! I won a pair of Fitflop Walkstar 1, to be exact. Boy was I so ecstatic! I was later told that I could get my prize last August 1, 2009. Eh I was in Cebu City that time so I decided to redeem my prize from the Ayala Cebu City branch of Res|Toe|Run

Check out the prize I chose (it’s the gold version of Walkstar 1):

Of course, I immediately wore them around Cebu City! I took my new babies for a run at Ayala Mall Cebu’s The Terraces, Waterfront Hotel Lahug, PAGCOR Cebu and I also wore them during my flight back home. I just love, love, love my new pair!

Thank you Fitflop Philippines!
