I Bought New Walking Shoes

Saturday, May 29, 2010

My brother and his wife are both professors at a college. They do lots of standing and walking everyday. He suggested that I should buy a pair of shoes called Skechers Shape Ups. They both bought them and it has helped them so much. They are less tired and less sore everyday. They wear them everywhere, except when they dress up.

I bought the Mary Jane Sketchers. It takes a little time to get to walking comfortable in them. But after that, they are great! I especially notice that when I walk on concrete, as in the grocery, I don't have the backache, my legs & feet feel better and I am less tired, than ever before. I used to come home exhausted, with a terrible backache (spine surgery) and would have to use the ice pack and rest for about an hour before I could get up going again.

I have not had mine for very long, but the advertisement for these shoes state the following ~~Burn more calories, tone muscles, improve posture, reduce joint stress and promote weight loss.

I am already happy that I purchased these shoes and I hope that I get the added benefits stated above. That would be great! The shoes feel like that you are walking on a mattress. I recommend them especially to people who are suffering with back, legs & feet problem.

    You'll have to let me know how you like them after you start wearing them.

    It sure makes a difference when you get a pair of shoes that are comfortable and with added benefits.

    I just bought a new pair of walking shoes not to long ago. I stayed with the New Balance for hills and distance, but the Sketchers sure were tempting. The sales lady said they were a little different to get use to.

    The best thing is..if they work for you and relieve your back pain that's all that matters.
    Have a GREAT WALK,

    Thanks for sharing. I will have to give them a try. I always be the New Balance with the roll bar. I have a tendancy to roll my ankles and these help.

    I love Skechers Shape Ups. I have always had problems with my feet. I could never walk more than a couple of miles until I got these shoes. I bought my first pair last year and then bought a second pair to use at the gym. I usually don't spend much money on clothes but these shoes are so worth it. I just ordered a pair of the Shape Up sandals for the summer.

    BRAVEONE, thanks for sharing this. I'm due for new walking shoes and will try these; at least in the store. :) I've seen them advertised and they do look strange. Sugar and I do a LOT of walking; wonder if they are good for distance and hills etc. I may find out. Would be interested in knowing how you feel about them after you've had them awhile longer. Anything that keeps us moving! Joy emoticon
