Sounds Sketchy to Me


Last week, I purchased a pair of Sketchers Shape-Ups which are shoes that supposedly tone your butt and legs while you walk.

If you are like me, you thought that simply walking accomplishes that goal but; the good people at Sketchers would tell you that you are wrong. Your butt and legs need the special rocking motion of the Shape-Ups in order to efficiently activate the muscles involved in holding your ass up in the perkiest manner possible; just walking, pshaw, not good enough for producing an ass that defies gravity.

And, I don’t know about gravity-defying but, I will say, my back feels remarkably good when I wear these shoes. Like, it hasn’t felt this good to stand on my feet all day since way back before the whole orthotics debacle of 2008-2009.

And, no nerve pain!

Plus, my arches feel supported, no, cradled like newborn babies in these shoes.

So, what I’m saying is, tight ass, schmite ass, I don’t feel like an eighty year old woman hobbling around the store when I wear my magical, pain-free-although, admittedly Frankensteinish shoes and that is all that matters to me.

Granted,  if a side-effect of the magical pain-free shoes just happens to be that my ass perks up like a teenager’s well, then, what a nice little bonus.

Really. I’m serious.

A few years ago, I actually purchased the originals of these shoes, MBT, google that and yes, I paid that much for the sandals and no Larry did not know about that purchase. I wore them for a while and I could tell a slight difference, but they were sandals, so not appropriate for all occassions and I eventually quit wearing them. I should try these.
