I put a pair on in the store and my husband could not stop laughing. Needless to say I didn't get a pair.

I think they aren't so cute.

I like the look of the Reebok ones better, but think if you exercise, you'll look better regardless of which shoes you wear! Hype? Probably!

They remind me of the old 'earth' sandal craze .. and the wooden sandals that were supposed to help tone your legs .. really, sneakers that flex a bit and still provide a little support work best for me. I'm actually a big bare-foot proponent .. although it's not always safe .. so don't go barefoot except where you know it's safe to do so!.

I have two pair of flip flops and one pair of sandal. I love them. I don't know if they are toning my legs or not but they are very, very comfortable. I have a lot of heel pain and they are so soft and squishy that they really help my heel.

I know some fellow teachers that have bought them. They say their feet feel alot better at the end of the day. I am still trying to decide if they are worth the price.

My sister has a friend that is a personal trainer. His thought, "Why work out when all you have to do is where the right shoes." The shoes may be an aid but you still need to do strength training.

I bought MBT's 3 years ago and wear them to and from work and if I can get away with it, I wear them at work. I can't wear them if I plan to walk more than a mile at a time. I do feel like they work my calves and the backs of my legs, but they will not create a better booty. LOL.

I usually wear my shoes on the weekends or when out walking or on the treadmill. I do feel like my legs are getting a different workout.

how often do you wear them?
Are you feeling any difference from wearing them?

I splurged on a pair of MBT's last fall. Haven't had a chance to wear them yet, as it was an extremely wet, rain fall and has been a snowy winter.
I ordered them from zappos. Unfortunately I put them aside and waited about 6 weekd to try them on and they are a little too big. OOOps.
Anyway i will wear two pairs of socks and start wearing them on the treadmill.

I work with a woman that has them. She says she likes them but BEWARE !! She was using the rest room in a less than clean setting so she decided to squat and balance over the bowl - these shoes made the balancing part tricky, and down she went. Hilarious !!

Contact your Avon lady or go to Avon's website...they sell an identical shoe that's put out by "Curves", and runs about forty bucks. Also available in a sandal. Quite cute!

Hey everyone I haven't been on in along time for personal reasons but I do have some input on these shoes if you have a kmart near you they sale a show made by thermo-sole same shape and style as sketchers just alot cheaper around 40.00 they also sale flipflops made the same way my mom and I have a few pairs and love them very much but they will give you legs a workout for sure and hips....so in closing I would say give them a try before you spend 100+ dollars for shoes you might not like as they do take some getting used to....

WHEN I went to the gym the owner wore MBTs and ordered them for the ladies who wanted them...they were $150 or more I think. Shape up looks to be the same shoe different name.

She said they really gave your legs a work out.

Renee...I am talking abt Laura @ Fitness Design for Women in Zachary...you might want give her a call.

I am curious too. A few of the ladies I work with who are on their feet on concrete every day really like them. They help with their lower back pain.

Has anyone bought them yet? I'm like some feedback from people who have tried them before I buy.
