The weather makes a big difference to any retailer and we've been able to reap the benefits this weekend because we stock such a wide range of different sandals.

Proof that the shopping trends of the nation change like the weather; Fitness Footwear has seen another roaring surge in the demand for its stocks of fashionable and functional summer sandals, with the biggest brands topping the charts in terms of sales.
There were clear blue skies and sunshine across the UK this weekend with temperatures rising to highs of fifteen degrees as people took to the outdoors once again, enjoying the warm weather and a wide range of outdoor activities.
At the same time sales of fashionable sandals began to climb online as people turned to the internet for convenience instead of taking a trip to the high street, especially when they would rather be spending their day outside and enjoying the sunny weather.
Fit Flops remained the most popular of Fitness Footwear's summer sandals range. Designed to work the slow twitch muscles in the legs and buttocks harder whilst walking, these fat burning flip flops have proven to remain a popular choice year on year with a wide range of women. Fit Flops are targeted towards women with neither the time nor money to attend gym classes, so they can work on getting slimmer legs and a smaller bum by simply wearing their Fit Flops as they go about their every day chores.
Birkenstock sandals were also high on the list of best selling sandals this week with Fitness Footwear taking the lion's share of the online sales with their ample stocks of the essential Birkenstocks styles, including the Birkenstock Madrid and the Birkenstock Gizeh which make up the core of the Birkenstock ladies range. However, once the summer is in full swing, Birkenstocks are forecast to be one of the biggest online shopping related search terms for three years in a row. While Fitness Footwear may offer the widest choice of sports and outdoor shoes on the web, the Hertfordshire based retailer is keen to supply its substantial customer base of outdoor enthusiasts with whatever forms of footwear they require to get outside and enjoy the warm weather this summer.
Fitness Footwear MD Luke Barlow said: "The weather makes a big difference to any retailer and we've been able to reap the benefits this weekend because we stock such a wide range of different sandals."
As the temperatures climb throughout spring during the build up to summer, many families have begun ordering their Crocs shoes in advance. Crocs are the best known form of colourful footwear for the beach, garden or casual summer comfort. As a result, Crocs have a broad appeal to a wide range of men, women and kids, with the majority of Crocs sandals ordered for young children who will be building sand castles and eating ice cream at the seaside.
Meanwhile Fitness Footwear has been keen to satisfy their loyal customer base of outdoor enthusiasts who include a wide number of runners, trekkers, hikers and even trail runners. To meet the needs of the most active persons, they also have an ample range of walking sandals. Walking sandals are an essential purchase for any walker looking to take to the trails in warm weather conditions either at home or abroad. By blending the technical performance and support of the best walking shoes with the lightweight comfort, style and breathability of fashionable sandals, walking sandals combine the best of both footwear designs to prevent feet from overheating on a hard days walk while offering shock absorption and exceptional grip for all types of terrain.
Although light rain is forecast for the rest of this week, that won't deter Fitness Footwear's customers who are eager to get outside in all kinds of weather conditions. But for their summer sandals, it may dampen spirits until next week when the temperatures are forecast to rise again and spark another influx of sales for summer sandals and assorted styles of outdoor shoes.
