So for those of you that have not tried the new Sketchers Shape-ups, you really need to. They are expensive, but in 3 weeks of wearing them, I've lost 15 pounds, and didn't really change anything else. They take some getting used to, but boy,are they worth it!

    I have had a discount store brand. I am on my second pair. I walk a LOT for work, and my first and still common daily cardio is extra walking. I do think that I burn more calories with them and my lower body is shaping up nicely!

    I got my Shape-ups at a close out store for a great price. It did take a little to get use to but I love them now. emoticon

    This is great! I think i'll try them, if just to strengthen my back and legs. Thanks for all the info everyone! Are the cheaper brands just as good, or should i just bite the bullet and buy the expensive brands?

    Sorry guys, I didn't mean to make it sound like you lose the weight because of the shoes haha oops :)

But since wearing them walking doesn't seem to hurt my joints like it used to, so I guess it just keeps me going. I love them!

    my granddaughters love them so I thought I might try them; waiting for the price to come down

    I'm a klutz , my biggest fear is falling down the steps and landing on my face...I do however have Reebok Easy Tone Sneakers and they are wonderful. The sneakers do not make you lose weight...they help you build the muscles in your legs.

    I guess I'll have to try them. Thanks :)

    I'd heard great things about the Sketchers Shape-Ups so I raced out and bought a couple of pairs for myself. Unfortunately, after 6 months of wearing them I have seen little difference in my weight. The only thing I can say is I have not had any pain in my arch which I did prior to wearing them. There are many other brands out there which are similar but cost a lot less. I recommend trying a different brand first to see if it makes a difference.
