Very comfortable

Praise or problems with comfort and wearability? 

I have a Morton's Neuroma in my right foot and walking had been painful due to pressure on the front of the foot. ShapeUps eliminate that pressure and have allowed me to walk again. I find them extremely comfy and have bought the Mary Janes as well as the sneakers, for a slightly dressier look.

Toning and Workout 

Some results

What toning results have you seen? 

Hard to tell because I have been walking much more and have changed my diet, so the improvement in muscle tone might be due to that as well as to the shoes.

My Review 

The cushioning is super-comfortable and the lacing is fine. I bought the sneakers 1/2 size larger because they run small, but the Mary Janes actually seem truer to size. So far the sneakers are very durable and great for fast walking.

Would you recommend this to a friend?

The different angle and cushioning of the Shape-ups can benefit people with some foot problems. More on Morton's neuroma
