Ok, I must admit, when I first saw the Shape-Ups and Tone-Ups by Skechers, I was really skeptical. All they look to me were thick, heavy-soled footwear. I thought maybe that’s their gimmick, by making their footwear extra heavy, it would give your legs a workout when you walk. Maybe that’s how it works.
I was a little less skeptical after reading rave reviews, and before I knew it, I bought the Tone-Up Electric Slide from Victoria’s Secret’s website since the Shape-Ups selection in Canada is very small and the Tone-Ups aren’t available here at all. For US$49.00, I thought it was a cheap way to test out this latest fad.
The Tone-Up Electric Slide is a pair of sandals that are thick soled, but not too heavy. I was actually amazed how comfortable they feel on my feet! I didn’t even have to walk around all day to feel the effects – tightened butt and that good feeling of having a good workout on the treadmill. You can definitely feel the toning effects when you walk up the stairs. For a mere US$49.00, the Tone-Ups worked better than my CAD$69.00 monthly gym membership!
I felt so good aboutÂ the Tone-Ups, I decided to buy myself the Shape-Ups, which are more intense than the Tone-Ups.
Even though this doesn’t really fit into my beauty review entries, I thought I should give it a mention since this does make you look more toned and lean! Kudos to Skechers for such ingenious products!
