So when Payless sent me a pair of their Champion Stride Fitness Athletic sneakers, I was eager to give them a test drive.

I've worn my Stride sneakers for two weeks. I can't tell if they've made my calves or glutes tauter, but they're cuter than the clunky Skechers Shape-Ups and extremely comfortable. For $29.99, they're a much better deal than Reebok EasyTone sneakers, which retail for $100.
Payless' fitness shoe line also includes a rocker bottom shoe called the Pace ($39.99) and an athletic flip-flop ($24.99) perfect for summer.
