Love these shoes!! Found a much more expensive pair ($250!) that I couldn't justify, but Skechers were just 2 doors down in the mall and at $99, seemed like a steal. I was somewhat skeptical of all the hype but am pleasantly surprised to report that they really do make me "feel" my walks again.

I bought a pedometer and found that my average number of steps on a workday was 450. What the “average” person should walk is 10,000 steps a day. My advice: Buy a Pedometer to find out where you really are on your "walking for exercise" routine.
I bought a pair after reading a good review in one of my exercise/fitness magazines. I love them. I use them when I walk the dogs & go to the grocery store. They really do work your hamstrings and calves. I also noticed that I focus more on standing up straight. They come with a DVD too.
I wore my new Skechers Shape-Ups everyday for a 1 week. I did not change anything in my diet or exercise plan. At the end of 7 days I had lost 1 inch from my hips and 1 inch from my waist!!! Thank you Skechers!
