  • I was looking at them at the mall lastnight, they are the ugliest shoes I have ever seen. I didn't look at the price. I would rather be fat that wear those ugly things.

  • OP here~
    well i am fat! lol
    and have some health reasons that make it reaLLY hard to lose weight! so frustrating... but maybe if i wore jeans that were longer so you couldnt see the height of the shoe, then i might do.... but yea i just think they are pretty ugly

  • I got the curves ones... I love them! I got them through Avon... They are actually on sale for $40 right now...

    They are great because they force your musles to tone just by doing the things you already do all day... if you do any kind of walking they are great fitting and have lots of support! I don't know about the Sketchers ones but I know the Curves ones are AWESOME...  And the sandals and tongs don't really look that bad either... The shoes just look like regular tennies...

    Here's the link to where I got mine... (NOT MY SITE)

  • Why not just join and exercise class?

    Or get a gym membership?

    Or an exercise DVD to use at home?

    Or go on walks?

    Or do the Weight Watchers program?

  • my friend says they were @ the mall for like 100 bucks but she has a high instep? whatever you call it..& it was the most comfortable shoe for her! but she didn't want to spend that much on shoes. I am going to look @ the ones 40...maybe good- If i can wear them & walk around cleaning my house & going to the store & get a toned butt n legs why not?
