What are the best Toning Sandals For Summer?

The FitFlop may have had the monopoly on toning sandals for a few years; however America’s favourite sneaker brand Skechers are fast catching up. This year sees an explosion of new styles which rivals that of the British toning sandal designers, who started on the toning sandal trend back in the spring of 2007.

At first glance it appears that Skechers and FitFlops are very similar. It’s no coincidence that the Tone Ups look the same as the FitFlop styles, with the FitFlop being such a big selling brand for the styles they offer, there was no need to reinvent the wheel!

Skechers Tone Ups offer the same great benefits to the body as their popular Shape Ups shoes, toning the muscles in the lower body, easing the strain on the joints, boosting the blood circulation and improving the posture.

Skechers Tone Ups toning shoes claim to make your bottom half your better half, and whilst you may prefer people to look at your top half when talking to you, most women wouldn’t turn down the opportunity to have some improvement to their nether regions, and get it into a better shape with improved definition to the legs.

Skechers Tone Ups Benefits

Skechers Tone Ups sandals offer the same benefits as Skechers Shape Ups, with a style better suited for the heat of the summer. Whilst many are put off wearing Shape Ups due to the style which makes it quite clear to all around that you are working your butt, the Tone Ups offer more understated styling with a huge range of styles to match all of your outfits and can be worn on all occasions.

The benefits to the body are wide ranging, offering toning throughout the lower body, a boost to blood circulation to help prevent varicose veins from forming, and posture correction to get the back straight, the shoulders back and improve the walking gait to relieve the pain from troublesome joints.

The Best Toning Sandals for 2010?

You will notice that in addition to the similarities in style, the benefits are virtually the same. Skechers Tone Ups claim to boost blood circulation and increase metabolism giving them a slight edge over their British rivals.

Skechers case studies demonstrate the Kinetic Wedge, the toning powerhouse in the midsole, increases strength in the glutes by an average of 41% whereas the FitFlop trials had one woman gain a 50% increase in muscle activity to the bottom thanks to their Microwobbleboard, although they claim up to 30% toning to the bottom, 16% to the thighs and 11% to the calves.

Ultimately the different percentages will vary from individual to individual, with some getting more of a butt work out, with others boosting other parts of the body. Either way, you can be sure that with both models you will be giving your body a great toning boost whilst improving your posture.

Both the FitFlop and the Tone Ups offer similar benefits, and whilst the Tone Ups to have the edge in terms of benefits to the body, the difference is only slight and for most women the choice of which toning sandals to buy will boil down to price, availability and preference for a brand, however on price we have a clear winner!
