Oh come on…you know you have been tempted.
Get in shape without setting foot in a gym?
–firms calf muscles?
–reduces cellulite and tones thighs?
–firms buttocks muscles?
–tightens abdominal muscles?
–strengthens the back?
–improves blood circulation?
Count me in, people!
It wasn’t originally MY idea to buy the Shape-ups. There was a little suburban legend floating through my neighborhood that these shoes could improve thigh and buttock appearance in a matter of weeks.
OK, it wasn’t really suburban legend, it was my friend Pamella.
So I shelled out the over $100 for a pair – even the price even elevates your heart rate! I am already exercising and I haven’t even left the Skechers* store.
*And because I am OLD I didn’t even know that Skechers wasn’t spelled Sketchers even though they have been around since 1992 which is like 100 years ago, but I was in high school PRIOR to 100 years ago so popular fashion ended in 1988 for me.
I headed home to start firming my butt.
The first day I wore them for several hours around the house. They are really comfortable and I didn’t even need the insole orthotics I would normally need in athletic shoes.
They are really ROCK-Y. I kinda feel like I am walking up and down hill all day, but around the house it seems to work fine. I would be worried about walking on uneven terrain in them until my ankle muscles are stronger since the soles are very high and it would be easy to step wrong and twist an ankle.
The most surprising thing to me was how much muscle soreness I have after wearing them for a few hours. In fact, several weeks later I am not wearing them more than a 1/2 day or so.
I will spare you any photos of my butt.
Really, you don’t have to thank me.
But I will say that they are the perfect thing to wear with my pajama jeans.
