So you’ve seen the ads and you’re probably wondering if these rocking shoes are worth all the fuss and the money.
I got a pair a few months ago at a Kohls sale and I have to say I like mine.
Skechers Shape Ups have a thick rocking sole which has been ideal for my feet. I have arthritis in the front of my left foot and my fat pad has dissolved so prior to buying Skechers Shape Ups days out at amusement parks with the family where painful and inevitably not as enjoyable as they could have been.
We have just gotten back from three days at Disneyland and we walked a lot, including to and from the hotel. I was able to keep up with my husband and kids without having to take pain relievers throughout the day. For additional foot support I do have a 2/3 length arch support that I wear in all my flat shoes.
So the big question is do they really tone your legs and rear? For me they do, but I have to confess I don’t exercise unless you count running up and down the stairs in our home when I’m doing laundry….
The first day I wore the shoes was at Universal Studios and I used our sons jogger stroller for balance as I got used to the shoes and using muscles that were unfamiliar. I felt my inner thighs and bottom got a work out although wearing the shoes consistently did not feel like it produced the same results. When we went to Disneyland this weekend I hadn’t worn the Shape Ups in a while and I did feel the burn just like a did the first time I wore them. After three days I am definitely feeling it in my legs instead of in my feet.
Due to the thickness of the soles I have been wearing these shoes with my jeans. I like being a little taller and having the option to wear comfortable shoes instead of boots.
If you have the money and want to get more out of your walks then Skechers Shape Ups are a great purchase.
