parents with obese children probably wouldn't be buying those and shape ups aren't meant for running and playing, they are meant to give you a boost while walking. :/ 

These are ridiculous and unnecessary and do not help you lose weight, at all, activity and watching what you eat do. These can help *tone* you, but not help you get healthy. 

By standards on the BMI scale for children my 2 year old is obese, although she's not: she's perfectly healthy.

Yeah true on the walking part.

At least they're trying :-)

I've read up a lot on these shoes and have found more negative than positives. You can get horrible stress fractures from wearing these shoes. There is actually a lawsuit right now on these specific shoes. I wouldn't recommend them.
