Do Skechers Shape-Ups Really Work, Pt. 2?

During my time writing Hot Mama Daily, my post on Skechers Shape-Ups was the most popular by a landslide.  Fans of these fitness "weight loss" shoes are extremely passionate about their benefits. The comments to my post were overwhelmingly positive and readers used it as a forum to share their opinion whether Skechers Shape-Ups really work?

Admittedly, the Mary Jane-style I received from Skechers took a little getting used to. One reader accused me of being a snobby New Yorker for writing that because of their orthopedic shoe-meets-club-kid-look I wouldn't recommend them for long walks in a busy, fashionable city like the Big Apple.  Okay, maybe I was being a bit snobby.

But as the Skechers trend gained momentum, I wore the shoes more often in public and I've seen other city gals doing the same.  Now the main drawback for me isn't their fashion statement; it's a question of their safety (do they offer enough support or cause injuries?) and real-world benefit (do the shoes really spark weight loss?).

So I'd like to re-ignite the conversation here on Everything She Wants.  Have you tried Skechers Shape-Ups?  Have you lost weight as a result of wearing the shoes regularly? 


Now there are even Shape-Ups for men.  Would your boyfriend, husband, brother or father dare wear them?
