    Default Skechers Shape Ups/MBT, "Anti Shoes"

    Work out while you walk!

    *another article*




    I remember when mbt m. walk's came out and I wanted to try those but the $245 price tag scared me away. The Skechers are reportedly better and cheaper at $100 a pair. The sucky part is that the sneakers only seem to come in black, but they have sandals too.

    Jesus those things are ugly.


    Rather than walking around with 1950s retard shoes, people should just jog.

    Lazy americans will do anything to avoid exercising.

    If you strap a 5 lb dido to the top of your head, I am sure your neck and core will get plenty of exercise. But..............you'd have a dildo on your head.

    haha don' knock it, till you try it. ;P It's not just for shaping up, it's also good for those with bad backs and joint problems but yeah I agree they aren't the most attractive shoes out there.

    Also I used to run and work out twice a day like a maniac and am now left with a shoddy knee and Plantar fasciitis so I am willing to try anything to relieve pain. Definitely not lazy.

    MBT's are the originals, nicer looking and come in more varieties but are $250 which is outrageous. I did find a pair on ebay for 125 though.

    < designed by those pesky swedes.

    They're not completely hideous. Let's hope they're the first batch.

    I like the idea though. Works for busy people, I guess. Walk, talk, work out, perfect.

    Hey, they come in white as well - http://www.skechers.com/c/img/produc.../11800_WSL.jpg

    How does that work? It seems like it'd be bad for your joints, posture etc rather than helping them...I'm sure they've researched it and all, it just looks really...implausible?

    Not that normal shoes are very good for your feet, though.

    I"m old and mostly wear comfortable shoes. I used to be a shoe fanatic but now it's mostly trainers or my dansko's.
