I’m walking on air – literally.
While in Shreveport on Saturday, I decided to try on a pair of Skechers Shape-ups!
I walked around the store while my friend Diane looked on with some skepticism. But I was sold.
Okay so they’re not Manola Blahniks, but they promise to promote weight loss, tone muscles and improve posture.
We shall see. At this stage of my life, I figure I need all the help I can get.
Dillard’s didn’t have my size but they placed an order and said I should have them within a week. They came today (after only three days) and were accompanied by a CD to describe what all they will do for me.
I never thought I’d purchase a pair of shoes that required instructions for walking in them.
They even come with a diet book. Oh gee, that’s probably responsible for the $107 price tag. Diet book – $75; CD – 15; shoes – $10.
Skechers’ motto is “Get in shape without setting foot in a gym.” I like the sound of that!!
I’m not sure about all these promises, but I can tell you they are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. Anyone else out there tried these boats. Do they live up to their claims?
I’ll probably stumble around a while getting used to the unconventional construction. And I was dismayed to learn they were made in China. But isn’t everything?
Right now, they are still sitting on my kitchen’s center island out of Rebel Dawg’s reach – he was eying them hungrily.
