Shoe with a purpose…

Here are my newest shoes- Sketcher Shape Ups:

Three clinical studies in the US and Japan show that Shape-ups significantly increase muscle activity and energy consumption over standard fitness shoes!

Doctors and researchers have confirmed that walking in Shape-ups can have major benefits on our health, including:

  • More toned and strengthened leg, back, buttock and abdominal muscles
  • Reduced body fat
  • Improved circulation, aerobic conditioning and exercise tolerance
  • Improved posture, relieving muscle tension and back/joint problems

If I’m going to walk- I want the higgest results possibe. Walking………………….

Edit: They didn’t fit! When I returned them to the store the cleark said they “ran small”- not good for people with big feet. I have other sneakers…

    I have heard that the newest thing is running BAREFOOT!!! They say that the cushions in the sneakers are actually hurting us and changes the way that we are supposed to run, causing joint issues, etc… think back aborigines who run and have no shoes. This is a whole new movement. It was in our Parade Magazine in the newspaper. Here’s the link: http://www.parade.com/health/2010/01/03-barefoot-running.html

    But they now make what they call Barefoot Shoes:

    I’ve got to tell ya… I’m intrigued and we have places around us that sell them.

    I know you have said before how much you like being barefoot, so now you have a better excuse to be so while running or working out!
