Does it Work? - Shape Up Shoes
03-07-2009, 07:26 AM
I read a small blurb in First Magazine about these. Anybody tried them?
They are at www.shapeupshoes.com.
I have Fit Flops in quite a few colors, but I only buy them because they are the most comfortable flip flop for me, not because they actually work your legs.

LOL wow those look quite ugly. I've never tried them though, so I can't say if they work.

Yes!! Ugly and scary looking. I wear Earth Shoes along with Fit Flops. I love them. I could really feel them working my thighs and butt when I first got them. In fact, you have to be sure to work yourself up when you first get them. Just 2 hrs. at a time. Now I wear them all the time. I have sandals and running shoes and will probably get 1 or 2 pairs for this year.

I have 6 pairs of Fit Flops. I wish I could wear them to work! Guess I'll pass on the shape up shoes, since they are so ugly.

The link wouldn't load in my browser.
I wouldn't personally buy shoes for any attested "lifting" or exercise value. I work out for that. Shoes are shoes to me, although shoes with a negative heel (like a pair of Earth Shoes I have) are quite good for helping my spine and posture because they align the body correctly. :)

I'd worry about them hurting my back after using them a few times.
