about these sneakers you are asking about? I know that Skechers have one called Shape ups and they are around $150. Do they look like those and what does it claim they are supposed to do. I have a pair of Fit Flops that I bought last year and they are very comfy for walking. They claim they are to help tone your legs etc. They also came with instructions saying that you should only walk for a short time and build up your time because they can cause injury. I didn't do this as I walk a lot and did not notice any difference in my legs. Which province do you like in as I am interested in having a look at these.

I have only seen pics of skechers so I don't really know what they're like. However exersteps has the claims the same results-tone your abdomen, leg muscles and etc. They have a round bottom so you kinda have to learn how to balance. I live in Newfoundland and love to walk. I wore them a little inside yesterday, They felt really weird at first, but kinda of got used to them after awhile.

I have a pair of the toning sneakers (MBT brand) and they are fabulous! I can really feel the extra workout in my calves and butt. I do recommend you stretch first as you are using the muscles more. The brand I have are very pricey (mine were a gift, I couldn't pay that price myself), but I'm sure the other brands are good also.

I have a pair of easy tones and while they are really comfy to walk around in, I don't use them to work out in. They also don't really make a difference with the tone of your legs. Your best bet is to get a pair of good, supportive running shoes. Your knees will thank you, even if your just walking.
