Where can you buy FitFlops in Dublin?
If you want to jump on the latest fashion bandwagon in order to tone your legs and bum while you walk, then FitFlops are the new shoes for you. Originally released in 2007, the past four years has seen massive growth in the brand in Ireland, with many people now choosing them as their summer footwear of choice. However we are regularly contacted by readers asking us just where the best place to find FitFlops in Dublin and the surrounding area is.
Unfortunately, there's not a huge amount of choice out there for shoppers who want to buy locally instead of doing their shopping online from mainland Europe or the United Kingdom, as only four retailers with stores in Dublin currently carry the shoes.
The good news is that between each of the four stores, you should be covered for pretty much any style and colour that tickles your fancy, as well as sizes. FitFlops are available for both men and women from Arnotts, Champion Sports, Sam McCauley Chemists and Beauty Features.
With twelve stores in the Dublin area, Champion Sports is the retailer most likely to have a location near to you, however not all of their stores will stock FitFlops, so you'll need to give them a call ahead of time to make sure that it's not going to be a wasted journey, and it's worth noting that their selection isn't all that impressive.
Arnotts on the other hand may only have the one location in Dublin, but their range is much more impressive, boasting over thirty different styles of FitFlops ranging from €55 to €125, suitable for both men and women, as well as children. With such a variety on offer, you're unlikely to leave empty handed.
Sam McCauley health and beauty stores, located in Glasthule Road, Sandycove and the Aldi Shoppping Centre in Newlands Cross also have an impressive range of FitFlops on offer, in various styles not offered by Arnotts. You can check their range out online at www.buy4now.ie/sammcauley.
Finally, if you are willing to buy online, but only from an Irish based retailer, then you should check out www.beautyfeatures.ie. This Blackrock based company carries five main varieties of FitFlops including Walkstar I, Walkstar III, Oasis, Electra and Pietra, each of which has a unique style and feel. Prices vary quite a bit from the cheap to the surprisingly expensive, so have a look around the site and find the pair that's right for you.
