Get Fit with Payless' Champion Stride Sneakers

I work out and watch what I eat.  But I still need all the help I can get to stay in shape and own several fitness shoes that promise to tone your legs, boost your booty, and stimulate weight loss -- including Skechers Shape-Ups, Fit-Flop knockoffs, and Earth Shoes.

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

The Stride looks similar to Reebok EasyTone sneakers and boasts similar benefits.  Two curved pods that transfer air between the heel and forefoot encourage muscle toning and provide cushion with every step.  The shoes are made with breathable mesh and durable rubber.

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.
