Skechers Shape Ups
Advantages: Comfortable, and they work!
Disadvantages: Perhaps we need even more colours and styles?
I first put my Shape-Ups on in early May this year. I've barely taken them off, since.
I can't say that I pay much attention to the shoes other people wear, but no matter where I go I'm always being stopped by people who ask me two questions:
"Are those...those shoes?"
"Do they work?"
My answer is always the same. They do, but that's not why I bought them. I have a back condition, lordosis. Since my early teenage years, walking for more than twenty minutes has been painful. After a week or so in Florida, I had more money spare than I'd expected, and the Skechers shop looked enticing. I went in, and pulled a sand-coloured pair of Shape-Ups from the shelf. They look like ordinary trainers, for the most part, stylish and bulky - the way I like my shoes to be. They have one giveaway, though - a large, wedge-like sole, cushioned - the reason people notice them as I walk down the street.
Pulling on the shoes in that Florida store, I was struck by their comfort. I'd never spent the equivalent of £80 on a pair of shoes before, but as I bounced my way around the shoe store I realised I couldn't resist. That was just it - they were bouncy, soft and comfortable. No pain, but no feeling of working muscles, either.
Now, I've been wearing my Skechers for just under half a year, and I've not felt my back hurt once. These shoes are perfect for comfort, but perhaps more importantly (given the name) they do tone your legs. I first felt that happen after four days, and though the results are mild the general overall toning of my legs has improved.
Skechers come in a range of styles, but I'd presume that they all share the comfort that has given me one real problem. I'm never going back to other shoes until the day Shape-Ups are no longer made - I'm destined to spend £80 on shoes, but luckily these ones look like they'll last a while!
Summary: A comfortable shoe that not only does what it says, but is stylish as well!
