Are the shape up shoes worth buying??

I;ve been seeing those shoes on commercials all the time, just wondering if they actually do tone your butt and legs..

  • Our local news station did a "deal or dud" segment on them. They really didn't vote them as a great deal. They determined that if people would simply get out and walk, regardless of footwear, they would do just as well. So, I guess it's really more of a personal preference.

  • My uncle, my brother, and my husband swear by them. BUT, not for shaping their legs (lol)...they use them due to other various reasons. My uncle started the trend in our family...he has a prosthetic foot and these are the only kind of shoes that are comfortable for him. My husband has back issues and they have helped him. IDK why my brother wears them but it's funny b/c he even buys the sandal ones.

  • Oh yeah, my mom wears them too and she says they are very comfortable but she hasn't seen any leg toning going on (and she walks every day)

  • They are comfy, but, I don't know if they really help except your feet won't hurt.

  • I like them, They're comfy. I mean for them to do anything you have to like be on the ball, just like any other workout. They're spendy...but I like em.,
