Gift Love with FitFlop

This season’s agenda? Wearing comfort without compromising style.

David Licuanco joined Fitflop’s shoppers on a magical spree last December 17, 2023, at their Mall of Asia branch. David played celebrity personal shopper and picked out the comfiest footwear for the holidays. David personally got to know patrons and chose each pair for shoppers in-store. The star himself rocked the Fitflop Anatomiflex Leather Panel Sneakers paired with a bright red sweater and beige pants, giving a touch of festive spirit to the casual look.

David’s recommendations to shoppers were all about comfort, fashion, and a generous sprinkle of festive spirit in true Fitflop style—the celebrity Santa made the shopping experience extra special and memorable.

 Gifting to Your BFF

 Angel Dei (@angeldei) loves keeping it comfy in a pair of Fitflop FMODE Padded Leather Flatform Cross Slides. Cool, easy, and contemporary, these buttery leather slides are extra soft and silky on the feet. Made with FitFlop’s Microwobbleboard™ technology, these deliver ergonomic all-day comfort. This chic pair is the best gift for your BFFs (Try to resist the urge to steal it for yourself.)

 Giving Back to Mom

Riva Quenery (@riva) sports a clean classic design with her Fitflop Eloise CorkWrap Leather Backstrap Wedge Sandals. The straps are crafted in smooth high-quality leather, and its curvy adjustable buckles (in brushed metal for a refined feel) ensure they stay on for the busy moms this Christmas season. Show your love to Mom with this perfect pair!

 Going on a Tropical Vacation

 Celeste (@celeste_cortesi) rocks the Fitflop Surf Adjustable Leather BackStrap Slides—a fresh and sporty take of FitFlop’s legendary supercushioning Microwobbleboard™ midsole. The pair has a rubber outsole that enhances the grip, making these suited for sandy beaches, the splashy outdoors, and the sunny tropical weather.

Gearing Up For Holiday Tours

Kim Tappy (@kim_tappy) fell head over heels in love (quite literally) with this classic pair of Fitflop Rally Leather Suede Panel Sneakers. The popular Rally trainers with curvy paneling are softly padded, fresh, and casual. The ideal present for someone who knows how to dress up a casual outfit with a good pair of sneakers.

Kim also gave us the perfect holiday tip: Make sure to wear your favorite FitFlops for light country trails, as well as in the city, or on a busy holiday exploring on your feet.

Cozy Classics for the Season’s Parties

 Vern Ong (@vernfloresong) loves to style his Fitflop Vitamin FFX Knits Sports with a casual monochrome. Perfect for both traveling and regular days at home. The sleek superlight sports trainer helps you move more and feel great. Biomechanically engineered for exercise and casual running, but equally good for dancing at this holiday’s get-togethers, the gift for someone who brings the party with them!  The best Vitamin isn’t in a pill, it’s on your feet.
