The FitFlop Rola Glitzy sandals offer a fun and unique look that customers love. They have a shine to them thanks to foiled faux leather and metallic balls that make up the uppers. Coming in a couple of colors you will be sure to find something that fits your wants and needs. Not only do these shoes look great but they feel great as well. The Microwobbleboard midsole ensures that you get a fantastic underfoot experience that your feet will thank you for at the end of a long day. They might have a high price tag, but customers say that they are worth the money they paid for them as they are durable and designed to last so they will not have to be replaced anytime soon. The sandals do run fairly true to size when it comes to length but they have a generous width so if you have narrow feet these shoes might not be the right fit for you. Overall, though, these are a great pair of flip flops that customers enjoy.

Outsole

Outsole

The FitFlop Rola Glitzy sandals feature a rubber outsole that is designed to be durable and comfortable, while still being able to give you a decent amount of traction. The slip-resistant rubber is going to help ensure that you stay on your feet while you are out and about, no need to worry about your feet slipping out from underneath you causing you to fall and hurt yourself or someone else, they are going to be able to hold quite the grip. Whether you are walking on a dry sidewalk or hit a wet spot on the floor, your shoes are going to help keep you upright.

These sandals have about a one-inch platform on them, but that is going to mostly vary depending on the size of shoe you are wearing, so these shoes are going to give you just a little bit of added height which some customers appreciate.
Midsole

Midsole

The midsole of the FitFlop Rola Glitzy sandal is probably one of, if not the, best features about the shoe. They are made using FitFlop's famous patent-pending Microwobbleboard midsole to give you an amazingly high comfort level while you are wearing them.

Not only are these shoes going to ensure that your feet stay comfortable but they are going to do a phenomenal job at helping diffuse any underfoot pressure reducing any shock impact, and what you do get will be easily absorbed by your midsole, reducing the risk of joint pain or discomfort while you are out and about. The shoes do this by increasing the amount of contact your foot has with the midsole. The more contact your foot has with the shoe the more surface there is to disperse the impact through, helping spread it out and relieve some of the pressure from other parts of the body.

The midsoles of these flip flops also feature a built-in arch contour that seamlessly comes up and gives you just a little extra support where you need it to give you a more comfortable feel while you are wearing them.
Straps

Straps

The straps that make up the uppers of the FitFlop Rola Glitzy sandals are made out of a shiny foiled faux leather material which is lined with a soft and comfortable microfiber. The straps are decorated with chunky metallic balls to give them a unique look. The uppers of these sandals are fairly sturdy so you should not experience any durability issues when it comes to them.

The straps offer a decent amount of breathability. Even though the majority of your feet are exposed to the air while wearing the flip flops, it is still important that the small portion of your foot that is covered as the ability to receive some air flow so you can stay cool and comfortable while you are out and about.
Weight

Weight

When it comes to your sandals you want to try to find something that is going to weigh as little as possible, especially when you are talking about flip flops. There is not a whole lot to a pair of shoes like these and as such, you should expect them to weigh almost nothing. You do not want to feel like you are walking around with weights attached to your feet, holding you back and slowing you down. Since you are keeping your shoes on with just a strap around your foot and between your toes, you want them to be super lightweight so you do not have to use too much energy to keep your shoes on while you are out and about. Unfortunately, there is not a whole lot of information on the exact weight of these flip flops, but customers can agree that they are virtually weightless and feel great on their feet.
Style

Style

The FitFlop Rola Glitzy sandals have a very interesting and unique style to them that most customers love. They only come in three color options, either black, pewter, or pink, but that does not stop customers from falling in love with them. The foiled faux leather straps give you a shimmery metallic look to them that will catch the eye of passers-by while you are on the go. They have four chunky metallic balls adorning the strap on your foot that adds to the great look of the shoes.

These sandals are great for a plethora of different occasions and will look great with a wide variety of outfits. Whether you are simply out running errands, shopping at the mall, meeting friends for lunch, or attending a semi-formal summer event these shoes are going to fit right in and look great. You can pair them with a nice pair of skinny jeans, dress slacks, a summer dress, or a nice pair of shorts and they are going to look great.
Support

Support

Support is important in your footwear. No matter what you put on your feet you are going to want to make sure you have the proper support for what you are doing while you are wearing them. Since the FitFlop Rola Glitzy shoes are a pair of more casual flip flops the chances of you running a marathon or going to a construction site in them are rather slim. You are not going to need a whole lot of support in these shoes as you might in running sneakers or work boots. That being said, they have plenty of support for casual wear.

Your foot is going to stay locked in place thanks to the snug fitting strap and the soft toe post. Even though most of your foot is exposed and there is not much keeping your feet on the platform of your shoes, this strap does a pretty good job of keeping your shoes on your feet. You are not going to get any kind of support for doing side to side movements and you probably will not want to do a lot of walking up and down hills in these, but since they are flip flops they are not expected to offer you that kind of support.

When it comes to arch support, however, they offer you a decent amount and customers love it. These flip flops offer a seamless and built-in contour that comes up and under your arches giving you cushioning where you need it.
Comfort

Comfort

The FitFlop Rola Glitzy sandals offer a phenomenal amount of comfort. Your feet will thank you at the end of the day for wearing these great shoes. They have a fantastic midsole that is made using FitFlop's own Microwobbleboard technology to give you exceptional cushioning underfoot as well as a seamless arch contour that comes up and sits under your arches to give you added support and superior comfort.

The strap of the shoes has a super soft microfiber lining under them to help make sure that the part of the shoe touching your foot stays comfortable, including the ultra-thin toe post. You should not have to worry about the straps rubbing uncomfortably along your feet causing nasty sores and blisters. Customers have had no complaints about this and that is always much appreciated.
Durability

Durability

When it comes to your shoes you are going to want to make sure that you are getting something that is going to last. You do not want to spend your money on something that you will just have replace again in a few short months. Especially, when the shoes you are buying cost a pretty penny which is the case with the FitFlop Rola Glitzy sandals. They are definitely not the cheapest flip flops out there and as such you are going to want to make sure that you get your monies worth out of them. The good news is that customers do believe they are worth every penny.

They might not look like it but they are designed with durability in mind and will not fall apart too quickly. Many shoes like these tend to break quickly and will snap unexpectedly but that is not something that you should have to worry about with these sandals. They are designed with great quality materials and are put together with care, there should be no premature wear and tear, so long as they are taken care of and not mistreated.
Fit

Fit

When it comes to your sandals you want to make sure that you get the correct fit. You want to make sure that your whole foot fits on the footbed and does not hang off of it at all, but at the same time, you do not want too much extra room there either. As for the strap, you want it to be snug on your foot but not too tight that it rubs uncomfortably or cuts into the skin on your feet. On the other hand, if it is too loose then you will not be able to keep your sandals on and you will lose them while you are on the go.

When it comes to the FitFlop Rola Glitzy flip flops customers are saying that for the most part, they are running true to size. The only exception is that they are just a tad bit wide, making them perfect for those with an average to wide width foot. Unfortunately, if you have narrow feet then these shoes might be too large on your feet and might not be the best choice.
Flexibility

Flexibility

Flexibility is important when it comes to your shoes, you are going to want something that is going to bend and flex with your foot as naturally as possible with each step you take. You do not want to feel like your movements are restricted and your feet are in prison. That is not something that you will have to worry about when wearing the FitFlop Rola Glitzy sandals. As they are flip flops they are going to offer you a lot of freedom to move to begin with, but the sole of the shoes promote flexibility and will bend and move with your feet while you are on the go, leading to a comfortable experience.
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

If you are looking for a fun and unique looking pair of shoes that you can match with just about anything in your closet then you have come the right place. You will catch the eyes of passers-by while wearing these shimmering shoes. They are super comfortable and your feet will thank you at the end of a long day, mostly due to the patent-pending Microwobbleboard midsole that helps with shock absorption and gives you a pleasant underfoot experience. The slip-resistant rubber outsole is going to help you stay on your feet while you are out and about, helping keep you safe. The flip flops do have a slightly high price tag, but they are also highly durable so customers believe that they are well worth the money paid for them as they will not have to be replaced for quite a while. These are an all around great pair of sandals that customers adore.
