    Toning shoes?

    Has anyone tried these shoes? I bought a pair but haven't worn them yet. My sister has a pair. She said that she didn't think they did anything but they were so comfortable. She wore them while doing some extensive cleaning, painting and fixing her of house. She said they were a life-saver or a foot-saver. I'm just wondering if anyone noticed a difference wearing these shoes.

    those are the Sketchers ones, aren't they?
    I don't have them, but would be curious myself. Good to know they are really comfortable.

    If they are the Sketcher rockers, I tried them on a Nelson's Shoes and I can't walk in them! Between the back, hip and Parkinson's, it was too much for me...They sure feel good!

    I bought some Clark's and TEVA's instead, but got two pairs of Sketcher pull-ons for DH...

    The brand I got was Avia-motion. I took them out of the box today and wore them on my grocery store trip. I'll see if I feel sore tomorrow. Feeling sore should be an indication that they are doing something, right? I have had heel spurs so I'm thinking that these shoes should be good for that.

    I have seen them, and even thought about getting them, but not for a hundred bucks!

    Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

    The pair I have has a great arch support which is suppose to be great for healing and preventing heel spurs. They say it's a negative heel so when you walk, you don't really put a whole lot of weight on your heels.

    I got mine at Kohls. They were originally $100 but they were on sale and then I had a 30% coupon.

    We have a kohls here so I may have to take a trip over there. Or we have a couple of nice shoe stores. They might be worth $100.00 if my feet didn't hurt. Thanks.
