Knee Pain After Wearing Skechers Shape-Ups

Reader Reviews: Skechers Shape-ups Shoe Reviews from Walkers

User Rating 1 Star Rating

Updated April 10, 2011

Model of Shoe

Name of product: 

Skechers Shape-Ups

Date of purchase: 

Feb. 2010


Painful to wear

Praise or problems with comfort and wearability? 

At first they seemed fine because of the cushion - I thought I had found my favorite sneakers. After a short while I could hardly walk in them because my knees started to hurt like crazy. I have never had knee problems before. Now I can barely walk and might end up in a wheel chair.

Toning and Workout 

No difference

What toning results have you seen? 

none - horrible pain in my knees.

My Review 

I am informing about my serious problems to anyone who ask me about the Skechers Shape-Ups, however, I am no doctor - people have to decide for them self.

It horrible for me to think that I may never be able to walk properly again without horrible pain.

I am hoping and praying that in time, I will be able to walk normal again.

Would you recommend this to a friend?
