These are the beauties that feel so wonderful.
They are Skechers Shape Ups Action packed, and they are amazing! I have been reading the reviews on Amazon, and apparently they are just the same as MBT's but £100 cheaper. Actually, these were a bargain. They are £65 at Amazon, but I bought them from Costco for £23, brilliant.
There seems to be some controversy about whether they actually tone your muscles. Well, they will enable me to walk more, which must surely have health benefits. I don't believe they will be a short cut to more toning, but then I don't believe in short cuts anyway.
I've worn them for most of today, and my feet feel more comfortable in these shoes than they do in just my socks. I am so pleased to have accidentally stumbled upon something that has enabled pain free walking, very happy.
