FitFlop Kano Nubuck Review
The FlipFlop shoe Company is a brainchild of an entrepreneur and two amazing biochemists. Yes, that’s right. Back in 2007, the successful entrepreneur Marcia Kilgore teamed up with the two very talented biochemists Dr. David Cook, and Dr. Darren James and created the FlipFlop Company.
The first product that came out of the FlipFlop Company were you’ve guessed it… Flip-flops. But since they’ve expanded the product line to sandals, sneakers, boots, and everything that you can imagine. They’ve got it. Al you have to do is chose.
And they’ve come a long way since the inception of the company back in 2008. The following year, FlipFlop sold more than 12 million pairs of their Walkstar 1 flip-flops, and the rest I history. They’ve been on a constant rise in sales since.
Today, FlipFlop markets and sells the products online, and through the most famous retailers all around the world. But for now, let’s focus on their Kano Nubuck slide.
A real source of pride and joy to the FlipFlop Company, the Kano Nubuck slide is the subject of this review. Hope you’ll like it.
Average to wide fit
Super comfortable slides
The fact that the outsole of the Kano Nubuck slide was lab-tested means that it was approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association. The bottom part of the sole lacks any indentation, but the sole fact that it’s made out of treated rubber means that it’s approved for slip-resistance. The name of the company can be found on the surface of the outsole. And right next to the logo, in big giant letters offer a heads up for the Microwobbleboard technology used in the midsole.
The midsole is not only biomechanically engineered to give the most comfort, but it also has the prestigious APMA Seal of Acceptance for footwear. The seal of acceptance promotes good foot health and wellness to the entire body. Oh, and last but not least, the seamless and built-in arch contour is found at the top of the midsole. It’s directly responsible for holding the strap of the slide and it looks amazing. The midsole is slightly elevated at the heel, giving the feet a little lift and better positioning of the body. But the thing is, although there isn’t any visible seam down the line of the contour, it’s perfectly capable of holding the upper in place. You might think that the upper will tear and damage without any proper seam, but you’d be wrong. It’s stable and durable even without the seam.
Which means that it will perfectly fit even the individuals that have much wider feet. The upper consists of one wider strap, and although the strap has no visible seams on the sides, it has a visible seam-line on the edges. The seam is done with the stitch of the same color as the color in the upper, and a small size logo of the FitFlop Company is visible on the surface of the upper as well. You’ll notice that the slides also lack any distinct embellishment and detailing. No embroidery, not patterns and not visible hardware is visible on the surface of the upper, leaving the surface clean, simple and minimalistic. It’s for the best since these are considered pool slacks, no embellishment is necessary. They look awesome, nonetheless.
The treated rubber, the Microwobbleboard technology in the midsole and the padded leather all work together to bring the highest possible comfort, and to every part of the foot. That’s especially true about the Microwobbleboard midsole. The different levels of cushioning are strategically placed on different areas of the midsole so the comfort can be achieved without fail and without question. Don’t worry about comfort. It’s a primary promise that the FlipFlop Company loves to keep with each and every shoe.
Treated rubber and high-grade upper rule in the shoe’s structure but in-between there’s something that’s a source of pride for the FlipFlop shoe company. Microwobbleboard technology. Used in the midsole, the Microwobbleboard technology is a new and improved way of preserving the shoes, protecting their durability and ensuring longevity.
Probably one of the few flaws that can be mentioned about the slides is the lack of color options and the fact that they’re plain on the surface of the upper. They don’t have any embellishments, not distinct patterns or ornaments. But they do have a line of fantastic features in them. You’ll never regret buying a pair of FlipFlop Kano Nubuck slides.
