Shape-ups


According to Sketchers website the Shape-Ups are suppose to get you fit while you walk work shop and more!! However you don't look very cool doing it!! I have heard people rave about how comfortable these shoes are and they might very well be ....but I think they are soooooo....freakin ugly!!! And I've seen people walk in them and the like almost bounce around its sooooo weird. Now if I were to spend over 100.00 on some tennis shoes that are suppose to help tone my ass while doing daily chores then I think I would go with the Reebok Easy-Tone  version .... they look so much more normal!!

 

However this is what their website said about how their shoes work to tone you....

Reebok uses unique balance pods with moving air built into the shoe that provide natural instability with every step, which forces your muscles to adapt and work harder.

Provides NATURAL INSTABILITY....thats the part that frightens me!! I am already naturally instable running into door frames and knocking my knees on the coffee table and stubbing my toes tripping over Brads shoes...I don't think I need any additional assistance in that department ...and if you know me personally at all I am sure that you would agree!!

What are your thoughts on these type of shoes...have anyone of you tried them??

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Haha, I'm with you on the Sketchers looking freaky. I've heard that none of these shoes make a huge difference (they tested 3 different brands on my local news and got minimal results from them all), so I'd go with the Reeboks.

I own the Reeboks (got them from the hubs) and I can honestly say I cannot feel a difference walking in these as I do my normal shoes...

I have walked around a river, on a treadmill, and everyday shopping in them. MAYBE they would tone more if I was 300lbs and had 0 muscles...I dunno...Maybe I am just naturally stable...

But I still wear them when I am walking... JUST in case they do lift my ass a bit...
