Skechers Shape Ups

Have you tried the shape ups? Do they really help you lose weight? Do they help with posture and all that? My MIL bought me some and I was wondering if everything they say is really true.

  • I've actually been running into a bunch of doctors' reports saying they may do more damage than good. I'd be careful with them.

  • I like mine, they're comfy once you get used to wearing them. I wear mine when I walk, I can feel them working the muscles. It feels like you are walking in sand so you work harder to walk & that gets different muscles moving.

  • couldn't you just exchange them? there's a guy at my work and he says they help so his feet don't hurt. i personally think they look really weird.

  • I love mine. Worth every penny IMO. I don't have back problems any more and I do feel my posture has improved. People say I look like I'm losing weight too and other than the shoes I haven't changed anything, so maybe. My legs did feel like they were getting a workout that first week I wore them too. Still, even without all that, they are seriously comfy shoes and I'll buy another pair when these wear out.
