Firm Your Bottom Wearing Shape Ups

Hello and Welcome,

I'm writing to share with you my experience and opinion about Skecher Shape-Ups. My opinion is that the sneakers do exactly what they claim. I wrote an article review about Skecher Shape-Ups and over night I received many comments so I'm here now sharing my experience wearing Skecher Shape-Ups.

The first time I saw a commercial advertising Skecher Shape-Ups I thought was a joke. I could not understand how wearing a sneaker could firm up our thighs and buttocks. I continued to see the Skecher Shape-Ups advertised on TV and again thought to myself what a joke. Until one day...

I went shopping for new sneakers and while I was browsing around I saw a huge advertisement promoting the Skecher Shape-Ups and decided to try them on. I put them on and walked around the store for about ten minutes. The sneakers were comfortable, offered massive cushion and while I was walking around I felt muscles being used that I don't normally use while walking working. I noticed myself balancing and adjusting my posture while I was walking around too. I was sold and purchased my first pair of Skecher Shape-Ups.

I waitress for a living and thought wearing the Skecher Shape-Ups would benefit me while working. I walk around a lot at work and felt wearing the Skecher Shape-Ups would put them to the test. The first time I decided to wear the Shape-Ups while working I brought my regular sneakers with me just in case I became uncomfortable. At first I found myself very conscious that I had the Shape-Ups on but as the night got busier and I had to concentrate keeping up with the rush, I never thought about the fact that I was wearing Skecher Shape-Ups. As the night came to an end and while I was doing side work and cleaning up I thought to myself wow, my feet don't hurt at all and I did feel my thighs and buttocks a little sore. I wasn't in pain but I felt as if I just did an hour workout.

The point of wearing the Skecher Shape-Ups is to use muscles you don't normally use while walking, running or working out. Just like when we exercise we are told to workout different muscles and not to do the same routine because over time the body adjusts to the same old routine. Doing the same old exercise routine becomes pointless unless we mix it up a bit.

The Skecher Shape-Ups are a little pricey but good quality made usually last longer.  I feel the Skecher Shape-Ups do exactly what they claim and are comfortable to wear.

    Hi Fluffy77,

    I gave up trying to tell people they do actually work. My balance is better and I feel better and they are comfortable too.

    Thank you, I have been trying to convince other family members of this very thing. They do work,I can actually feel my muscles working more and becoming toner every time I go for a walk in mine. I really wish more people would give them try. Great hub, voted up and useful.

    Hi Nell79,

    They do work. I am a bit more fit than I was a year ago. I asked for Christmas a pair of the Rebbock Sneakers. They have two balls at the bottom of the sneaker. I can't wait to get them. I'm sure I will use different muscles when wearing them and then wearing the Sketchers. I'll be writing a Hub come January or February about the Rebbocks.

    I wondered about those too and found myself making jokes about them quite a bit. Maybe it's time to give them a second look!

    Hi David470,

    Yes, your body involuntarily uses muscles that are not normally used. Exactly and perfectly explained.

    Nice review. I seen this advertised and questioned it, but it does sort of make sense. They are designed a specific way so that your body involuntarily uses muscles that are not normally used unless isolated with some exercise.

    The price actually is not to bad for a shoe like that. I see regular shoes for more lol

    Hi bayoulady,

    I saw your comment posted at Infobarrel. I do agree about all the models used are in their twenties. Skechers should use thirty year old and up.

    I saw that the young models they used on TV are young and firm.I wondered if it really worked on someone that wasn't 20 anymore. It's good to get a review from a respected and trusted writer!
