These shoes were advertised to help get the most of out just walking but the claims are false. You'd get more of a workout in regular shoes than in these awkwardly high shoes.
These are the most comfortable shoes I own. They take a bit to get use to as the back part of the heel is missing so you "roll" your foot from back to front as you walk. This is suppose to help strengthen your glutes!
I bought a pair of Shape-Ups from the Shoe Company and promptly returned them.
Perhaps they are effective, but I really didn't want to risk finding out.
They are very unstable in my opinion. I walked around the house with them for a couple of days and found that I was very "wobbly".
They weren't comfortable on my feet and I was constantly worried that i'd trip up.
I can't imagine actually going for a decent walk in a pair.
Stick with a comfortable pair of walking shoes that are better designed for your safety and comfort!
These are HORRIBLE for your feet. Every time I see someone wearing them I cringe and want to tell them that they're unknowingly causing themselves pain. The most common injury types which occur from wearing these shoes are foot injuries, ankle fracture injuries, Achilles tendon injuries, broken leg injuries, hip injuries, or any other injuries sustained from a fall.
Shape-ups are designed to help you strengthen your muscles, including your back, abdomen and calves. Shape-ups will help you lose weight and improve your circulation, creating a healthier you! It's easy to shape up with Shape-ups. Wear your Shape-ups everywhere and anywhere you walk (or stand), and your body will feel the benefits. Designed to improve your life by changing the way you walk, Shape-ups feature a unique soft kinetic wedge insert and dynamic rolling bottom to simulate walking on soft sand. With the comfort of Shape-ups, you will feel your heel sink to the ground as you step, roll forward as your weight shifts to its center, and push off with your toes. This movement will result in stronger leg, buttock, back and abdominal muscles as you stabilize your steps.
