Shape Ups For All Occasions

Whether you want a sandal for the summer, a sneaker for exercise, or shoes to wear to work, you will be spoiled for choice with Shape Ups.

Shape Ups toning shoes have enjoyed an explosion in style in recent months, with brand new lines launched, a host of new technology, and highly fashionable designs. Many of the new Shape Ups offer a low profile construction, with a thinner midsole and greater stability. The shoes can be worn for running and higher impact exercising, offering the chance of posture correction and toning no matter where your feet take you.

New Shape Ups Styles for 2010 / 2011

This year has seen the introduction of the Shape Ups XW Extended Wear collection, developed with the workplace and long term wear in mind. The shoes offer the maximum comfort for a full day on the feet, with smart styling and plush uppers for more formal occasions. The Shape Ups XF Extended Fitness range is a new line offering a lower profile design better suited to cross training, and can be worn for the gym, jogging and walking.

The Shape Ups Original collection has also been bolstered and still offers the best bet for pure walking, with many new and fashionable styles added earlier this year.

How Skechers Boots Work

Shape Ups boots utilise the same Kinetic Wedge technology as the sneaker range. The Kinetic Wedge is a dual density EVA foam midsole designed to improve dorsiflexion in the feet, and to introduce small instabilities when walking. The body responds to the imbalance by firing more muscle fibres, and increasing the range of muscles used. Toning to the gluteus, hamstrings and calves is increased, with up to 30% more muscle activity generated when walking in Shape Ups and Tone Ups boots.

The soft Kinetic Wedge midsole offers excellent shock absorption to ease the forces acting on the joints, and helps to correct the posture bringing the shoulders backwards and aligning the spine. The change in posture eases tension in the back and shoulders, makes breathing easier and helps to stimulate the blood circulation.

Shape Ups Elasticity

The Shape Ups Elasticity toning boot is one of the most popular choices for winter warmth, with smart suede uppers and an attractive faux fur trim. The boots give a targeted workout to the buttocks, hamstrings and calves, and also help to gently tone the quads, abs and lower back.

The Kinetic Wedge midsole simulates barefoot walking in soft sand, introducing an extended heel to toe roll, stretching the plantar fascia and bringing more flexibility into the feet. The heel strike is well cushioned to ease the forces on the joints, and they make winter walking a pleasure. Posture correction has never looked more attractive.

Boot Stats:

  • Suede uppers with faux fur trim and lining
  • Half zipper on inside
  • Rubber outsole for traction
  • Reinforced PU frame for stability
  • 10.5 inches from the arch
  • 14 inches round

      I have worn skechers shape ups since they came on the market. I am a large woman with many back problems. I have not worn anything else on my feet and I will not. There is no boot or shoe more comfortable for someone like me. Oh and I am a waitress and am on a cement floor for 7 to 10 hours a day. Need I say more?. Can't go wrong with these if you follow directions when you first get them.
