The Right Shoes

This Sparked Me!

I recently bought a pair of SHAPE-UP shoes. Wow what a
difference they make. My back and feet don't hurt anymore
and I have way more energy. The price is soo worth it.
I noticed my buns and thighs are starting to tone up, even after 1 week. I highly recommend them to anyone.

MORE INFORMATION:
I bought them at a skechers outlet in my local mall. You can
also get them at burlington shoes. FYI many other shoe stores sell similar styles claiming to be just like sketchers
don't be fooled. They're nothing like them. Pay the money to
get the real thing! They're soooo worth it.

    Are Shape-Ups anything like those from Bliss that cost abt $250 or the new Reebok ones that cost abt $125? anybody know and can compare/contrast?
NANNER2121 3/25/2010 3:03:00 PM

    I've been eyeing them for some time now wondering if they are everything they're advertised to be. You've given me food for thought.

    I picked mine up a couple of weeks ago. Love them! They are made by Skechers and can be found anywhere they are sold as well as on their online site www.skechers.com .

Please note, for the first couple of times you wear them, don't wear them longer than 20-30 minutes!! They feel great right away, and they do work your leg muscles different but you won't feel the difference till the next day!

    so true I bought mine on the 20th of March and just love how comfortable they are and my posture is better!
DIANE7786 3/26/2010 10:41:00 AM

    I love my Shape-Ups. They look odd but feel like walking on pillows.
VK2Z10 7/25/2011 12:15:00 PM

    I didn't like them. even after 3 months of consistently wearing them, my calves were hurting by the end of the day. I don't think they live up to the hype and i don't think they are worth the $.

    I bought the Avia version and I like them. You can feel the burn in your calves and they also take the discomfort away from my knees. I got them at TJM for less than $45.00.
DAYDREAMINGJEN 5/27/2011 12:35:00 AM

    I think I'll get some tomorrow, my back is killing me in my high end walking shoes.
PEDAL-PUSHER 3/15/2011 11:34:00 PM

    I bought my Shape-Ups a month ago, wear them for every outdoor walk, and find them the most comfortable shoe I have ever had on my feet! I tried on several brands of toning sneakers, and bought the Sketchers based on the comfort. I have almost 90 miles walked in them, I will certainly be buying another pair!
MISSME1223 2/28/2011 10:29:00 AM

    I was scared of the rocking motion of the shape-ups...I'm known for being clumsy...LOL...so I opted for the new Sketchers Tone-Ups...they use balance ball type bubbles on the heel and ball of the foot...I LOOOOOVE them and can totally feel them working...I have a picture of them in my gallery =)
MARPET44 1/9/2011 7:33:00 AM

    You all have convinced me to give them a try.
NURSEMATE49 11/16/2010 8:18:00 AM

    I have been saving and thinking about purchasing them. My sister loves them and is one her second pair. She uses one for exercise walking and the other for everyday use. Her legs and but are truly being toned. emoticon
MAGMAN 10/30/2010 2:28:00 AM

    I'm finally getting out of a soft cast for my broken toe (broke it 6 months ago) and the orthopedist recommended any kind of rocker shoe, or a shoe with a rigid orthotic. I ordered some (not Sketchers) from Zappos.com and they should arrive in a few days. By the way, Zappos offers free shipping to you and free returns as well! I'm hoping they'll not only keep pressure off my forefoot but help me with some walking--I haven't done anything longer than a few blocks for months now! emoticon
CALIOZ1978 8/2/2010 6:39:00 PM

    I bought the Dr Scholls version of the shape up's for only $50 bucks at Sears. I love them...they really work your calves.
RLTOHOTTOTROT 7/25/2010 1:37:00 PM

    I love my sketchers shape-ups. I can walk and not get tired out, and my feet feel great. I used brace on my left foot, due to flat arches. After getting my first pair of sketchers I was able to stop using the brace. I walk and my feet don't hurt. Yeah!
SUGARSMOM2 7/1/2010 4:25:00 PM

    am thinking about getting them . hope they work for me as they have worked for you .
CATHRINE2010 6/21/2010 3:52:00 PM

    Try the Tone ups for summer I loved them soo much I bought 3 pairs!!! emoticon
AMBROSIASTR1 6/16/2010 9:52:00 PM

    I love that my knees and hips don't hurt when I wear my Shape-ups! My posture is better and after wearing them for several months I notice that I walk differently in my regular shoes now. I'm not sure about the toning but since my parts don't hurt, I don't spend as much time sitting as I used to.
CATHRINE2010 6/8/2010 6:59:00 PM

    i have the Tone ups they are soo great I had to go buy 2 more pairs !!!I will never wear anything else to work on cement floors(hairdressers have bad feet!!) go get some!!
MATILDA444 6/8/2010 9:43:00 AM

    I have the MBT shoes. I didn't notice any toning benefit. Yes, it's a different gait and posture and it's almost always a good thing to change things up a bit now and then. I do a lot of weight training/walking/biking and have very strong legs already, so that may figure in.
CUTTINABBY 4/14/2010 10:42:00 PM

    I guess I must be working different muscles for my legs haven't got the the workout but my abs sure have!! !My posture is much better and I can wear them all day and not have sore feet when I take them off .I am going to buy another pair, they are worth every penny .I wish I had splurged on them a lot sooner.
POLYANASUNSHINE 4/10/2010 9:33:00 PM

    I Love mine.
BUTTERFLYEMERGE 3/28/2010 9:46:00 AM

    I've ordered mine from amazon.com. Can hardly wait for them to arrive first of the week! Thanks for the post!
DIANE7786 3/26/2010 10:41:00 AM

    I love my Shape-Ups. They look odd but feel like walking on pillows.
BABIE_JANE 3/26/2010 12:11:00 AM

    I've had mine a few months and love them. My other shoes feel neglected because I always want to wear my Shape-Ups. Going to get a pair of the sandals, too.
STARWARD 3/25/2010 10:31:00 PM

    I purchased these sneaks as well- and I love them .. First time users don't attempt to keep them on all day the first time. Take your time and break them in - They are awesome!!
KARENE10 3/25/2010 7:11:00 PM

    I work in a store and they sell pretty well,people that have purchased them say they are great.
CMKOBE 3/25/2010 4:19:00 PM

    I bought some this summer and you don't get as fatigued by heaving all this heavy weight around because of the way the bottom is designed. But they DO work the back of your legs more than just regular walking, so be careful--you WILL be tired. I love them.
TIGGERIFFIC123 3/25/2010 2:29:00 PM

    Where did you purchase them?
AMYLOVESTZU 3/25/2010 2:24:00 PM

    I WANT TO GIVE THEM A TRY AND SEE IF THEY WILL HELP WITH MY LEG PAIN
