Model of Shoe
Name of product:Skechers Shapeups
Date of purchase:July 2010
Praise or problems with comfort and wearability?
Although they may be a little heavy for a female walker (I am a male) I have found the Skecher shapeups the most comfortable walking shoe I have ever had. I am 61 and I walk in a neighborhood with several hills and also I walk in an 8 story parking garage & get a comfortable walk with these
Toning and WorkoutGreat results
What toning results have you seen?
Firmness of calves & thighs
i rate these as a 5
The pros are definitely the comfort these shoes give you while you are walking. My walk consists of different directions each day and every walk consists of a few hills. I also mix in an 8 story parking garage at least 4 days a week. I am 61 and I have noticed that my calves & upper legs have already toned up in a few short weeks.
The only downside of these shoes was developing a blister on the right side of my ankle where the side of the shoe wore when my ankle sock slipped down during my walk. As long as your sock doesn't slide down, you should be OK.
Again these are the most comfortable walking shoes I have ever used.
