When I travel I spend dozens of hours cooped up in an airplane. As the altitude increases, my feet often swell and feel uncomfortable, which can make flying an unhappy experience for me. This fall I tried out Flit, the Kigo Mary Jane Barefoot Shoe while I was traveling.
My review is the shoe is great for airplane travel. They are feather-light, have no skid bottoms, come in gray or black, and fold in half for easy storage. Also, each shoe is made with some green technology:
- Low carbon output production via PLUS Compound Technologies
- Post-consumer and recycled construction via CYCLEPET uppers and HD PLUS insoles and outsoles
- Certified non-toxic dyes, glues and water/stain resistance
On the airplane this shoe feels like my feet are bare – they are perfectly comfortable. They also slip on and off easily at the security stops at the airports.
This shoe is cute, eco-smart, and comfortable; I feel the shoe is a benefit while traveling in the airports. A definite win.
However, if you wanted to walk a long distance, I would not recommend the shoe as it has very little support and should definitely be considered “a barefoot” style shoe.
Please leave a comment below and let me know what your favorite traveling shoes are. Thanks and happy traveling! !
*Note – Because the FTC requires it, I am noting that KIGO Footwear provided a sample of their shoes for me to try out at no cost.
