Shape-ups? Have you tried them?

KnK KnK
I'm lazy and always looking for an easier way to get exercise.

I thought that getting these might be good for my walking around campus between classes to give my trips a little extra oomph! What do you think? Ever tried them? Like them, love them, loathe them?

My wife loves hers and I can see a difference in her calf's and butt. My mom is a nurse and swears by them.

I know a lot of people that love them. I have a friend who uses them when she works out and she swears it makes her workout much more worthwhile. I'm looking into them myself.

I have not tried them and I'm skeptical about the claims made. Here is an article with studies to support both sides: link.

I read an article in my local newspaper that said that while they may be effective at first, your body eventually gets used to them and they stop helping you. I've never used them, though, so I can't vouch for that.

I would try Vibram Five Fingers before I would try Shape-ups.

I tried them out in a store and didn't like them. It felt like I was going to fall on my back.

I wear them on my walks, and I can feel a difference when wearing them (it's like the muscle burn from walking in sand.) I think I'll wear them when walking between classes, not like I have any pretty shoes that I wanna wear for the kinda treks from class-to-class.

I've never tried them, I've thought about it though. Everyone that I know that wears them loves them!

I've never tried them but I have family that has...I haven't seen a difference since they've been wearing them either.
