This Sparked Me!

The fad shoe Fitness Craze I had to try on! And Bought. I can definitely feel and see a difference in my posture, calves, gluts. I compare it to walking and standing on a Balance Board while having them on.

MORE INFORMATION:
Purchased at Macy's Dept. Store at a great discount- $89.00, the Strengthening Version of the Shape Ups. Includes Informational Disc and additional shoe strings too. Warning! Believe the advisory to start out slowly!

    About a week after I bought mine, my legs were really sore for a few days, but that got better. They don't make my legs or knees hurt in a bad way at all. The biggest thing for me is that they are super comfortable - to me, it's worth the money to have shoes that don't leave my feet hurting at the end of the day.

    I dont have the sketchers I have the orignial MBT's and paid over 300.00 for them and I love them I can walk further and stand for longer. My daughter wants to try the sketchers

    I bought my sketchers about 2 months ago and totally love them! I even got rid of my regular tennis shoes and wear my Sketchers all the time. I'm not sure if they're doing anything extra for me, but since they are so comfy I find myself walking for longer periods of time! My legs/knees/calfs do not bother me after a long walk like they did when I wore my old regular shoes. And they did take some getting used to in the beginning, but I got used to them in a few days. In my opinion, definitely worth the price! emoticon

    I don't really like how the Skeechers Tone-up shoes look....

I went with the Reebok EasyTone/RunTone ones instead. They are the same $$ price but look more like "regular" sneakers.

I love them. They are super-comfortable and feel great on my feet.

My $0.02. Good luck and happy walking! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yes, they really are worth it to me! I bought a pair back in March and yes, at first you must go slow, only wear them a few hrs a day for a few days! Now I wear them everywhere! Don't know if they make you loose weight and all that, but I've always had problems with my feet and legs and it has helped tremendously!! They feel so comfortable and my feet and legs aren't as sore and achy and they don't hurt! Wonderful shoes!

    I vote yes for Skeechers! I bought a pair over a year ago and love them! Will they make you skinny or more fit? Don't think so, never did go for that advertisin g hype. But I've have foot, leg and back problems from 35 years of standing in front of a classroom all day long. With the Skeechers, like others have said here, I can walk all day or stand on the concrete floor of my basement when I'm quilting and never have a problem. Follow the directions, start slow and expect a little soreness. But they have helped my balance and overall leg strength. I live on a steep mmountainside. Do I wear them climbing the mountain? Absolutely not! BUt in town, on level and hard surfaces, they are great!

    I bought a pair of Sketchers in April. It did take a while to get used to wearing them. I love mine. When wear them, your feet feels like you are walking on a mattress.
I have had spine surgery and all the stores have concrete floors, my feet and back
would ache and I felt so tired. Since I have started wearing the Sketchers, I can
really tell a great difference. I would recommend them. My brother & wife are both
professors, stand on their feet all day, they wear theirs every day.

    I was considering purchasing a pair myself until I read an article in the newspaper where they stated doctors are seeing a lot of patients who have had injuries wearing them. The article said it can change your gait as well as cause balance problems. Since I am not the most coordinated person, I have decided against trying them. emoticon

    I purchased mine in Jan 2010. The first week or so I was sore but I wouldn't wear anything else now.
Truth is my feet don't hurt either after being on a concrete surface for hours. They were worth the money for me!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I've had mine for 6 months. They are VERY comfortable. I don't think they have made a difference in shaping my legs.
GOOZLEBEAR 5/30/2010 9:13:00 PM

    I've had mine about a month and really like them. They are the most comfortable workout shoe I've ever had. I really can't tell that they work my calves, glutes etc. but I still really recommend them.
DOXEYLOVERX2 5/24/2010 8:27:00 AM

    I LOVE mine!! What a difference they make...would highly recommend!!

    Although I doubt the shoes make much of a difference, from what I have read, if you enjoy walking and do more of it, then go for it.
SUNNYARIZONA 5/22/2010 7:39:00 PM

    According to the TRUE or FALSE test on Dr. Oz....they do NOT help do what they say. They make me feel more unbalanced. Love my Toners though!
LECATES 5/22/2010 6:26:00 AM

    But do they make your legs or knees hurt? ARe they worth the 100 bucks? Would like some imput on this.
