Skechers Shape Up Shoes

What About Skechers Shape Up Shoes?

Ah, the Skechers Shape Up Shoes. Is this shoe an abomination on fashion or is it a blessing for the booty? For a shoe that seems to have a hunchback-like sole (also known as a rocker bottom style or a dynamic rolling bottom), Skechers does a pretty decent job of keeping the Shape Ups from looking too much like Quasimodo. In fact, Quasimodo may be the entirely wrong person to reference. Kim Kardashian may be the more appropriate person you want to envision when thinking about the Skechers Shape Up Shoes, or at least that's what a recent Superbowl commercial might want you to think!

Skechers Shape Up Reviews

Surprisingly, the Shape Ups get really good reviews. Eartha Haines (of www.tryingfitness.com) concludes her review of the Skechers Shape Ups by saying:
Overall, the shoes are comfortable and actually quite fun to walk in. They also don't look bad at all. If you enjoy walking outdoors for exercise or even on a treadmill, these shoes may provide added benefit for improving posture and activating muscles.

I am obese. I have foot, knee and back problems. Walking, prior to my purchase of my sketchers, was an incredibly painful and exerting process. I don't know about the physics of the shoes, but I can say that my feet do not hurt after wearing them all day long at work (previous to buying them, I could barely walk when I came home, my feet hurt so badly), and when I go out to walk the dog, I can essentially walk twice as far as without them. I have been wearing my 'sport' shape ups and my 'extended wear' black leather 'work' shape ups for about 8 months... from my perspective, they are helping me be more active, not less. [On 2/5/11.
