Average comfort

Praise or problems with comfort and wearability? 

I loved my shoes for first couple of months. I wore them all the time and started wearing my "normal" sneakes and my feet hurt all the time! Not sure if my feet just like the sketchers or if they caused problems with my feet to where normal shoes hurt them....very annoying. Left foot is worse.

Toning and Workout 

Some results

What toning results have you seen? 

Some toning in my calves.

My Review 

I love my sketchers the only drawback is I wore them "all" the time and started wearing my "normal" sneakers in-between and my feet HURT...so much that I went to the doctor and he said it was similar injury that women get from wearing "high heels". Your ligaments stretch to support the heel and feet get use to being stretched which causes foot and ankle pain. I recommend the shoes only to "work out in" not as a everyday everywhere shoe.

Would you recommend this to a friend?

This sounds like the problem of getting used to a waterbed and then not being able to sleep on a regular bed. People have different experiences with Skechers Shape-Ups.
