    3.0 out of 5 stars Shame they just weren't for me 14 May 2010
    Verified Purchase
    I ordered these trainers as I actually liked the chunky look of them, and then I was fascinated about the fitness claims, the hype etc, and wanted to try them out for myself. I ordered black nubuck, which are lovely, although the nubuck does seem to mark easily and I suspect they may not look quite so smart for very long.

    On the positive side, they are extremely comfortable. I didn't find it too difficult to get used to walking in them and they feel very soft and underfoot.

    On the negative side however, they didn't fit me very well. I am a 6.5, so I ordered a 40. They did seem to slip up and down on my heel, so I tried them with thick socks and lacing quite tightly. The problem with this, was that if I laced them too tightly, my toes started to feel numb. If I laced more loosely, they just felt too sloppy. I wish I'd ordered a 39 too for comparison, but suspect it might have been too small. There's no denying that the shoes are chunky, and they are never going to look elegant. They are more akin to hiking boots than trainers, in both feel and look. They did make me feel like Minnie Mouse, with huge feet, and I would certainly only ever contemplate wearing them with jeans or long trousers, never shorts (as optimistically shown by the model in the advert). I felt very aware of these huge things on the ends of my legs and had to take great care walking downstairs etc. As other reviewers have also pointed out, I did feel that the shape of the shoes had a tendency to make my feet over-pronate and this concerned me. I can understand how some people say they have twisted their ankle wearing these, as you are quite raised up and there is little ankle or arch support.

    Sadly, I never got to try them outside, as I knew I couldn't return them once I'd worn them.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Buy for Comfort 1 May 2010
    Colour Name:Black nubuck|Size Name:5 UK
    Hi I bought these shoes as I have wanted some MBTs and these were cheaper. I have the same trainer from sketcher just with the normal sole so thats why I chose them. Well after using them every day for about a month I can say I have felt no real difference, in saying that though they are very comfortable. I walk too and from work every day. It is about 40 min walk there and back. I felt a slight heavier feeling in my calf when wearing them so they probably would work for someone who doesnt walk as much as me. Mind you going back to the comfort bit, I have very bad knees. They lock and dislocate frequently and walking although is good for them can get painfull. With there shoes I have had NO knee pain. Its been a relief. I would buy them again for this reason alone. I have a friend with MBT's that I tried on. They are much more of a work out. So if you have a job where you are on your feet a lot or walk alot in your own time then I would say these will be a very good purchase as they are very comfy and do improve the way you stand. If you are wanting to use them purely for exercise then I would spend an extra few quid and get the MBT's. If you do not stand correctly you will feel it in your lower back as I did when I first wore them.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I'd give these ten stars, if I could! 22 Jun 2010
    I bought these shoes in the black leather option about a month ago. I have a physical job and I'm constantly on my feet, so these seemed to be an excellent way to optimise, (pardon the pun), the benefits of my demanding work.
    What I didn't expect was the opulent comfort that these shoes offer. I have slightly dodgy knees and these Skechers take all the strain off my poor joints. They are a marvel! To coin a cliche, these shoes really do make you feel like you're walking on air, and knowing that you're toning up at the same time makes one feel somewhat virtuous! I've already noticed a difference in the way my clothes fit and generally feel much better in myself.
    I'd recommend these shoes to anyone. I didn't even have to wear them in or acclimatise myself to them - they were great from day one.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing sketchy about these but the style 23 Mar 2011
    I've been wanting a paif of Skechers shape ups for a long time, but could never really justify the large price tag to myself. However, when I last cashed out from Dooyoo, I decided I would put the money towards a pair as a bit of a treat.

    There are a range of different styles in the 'Shape Ups' range. However, knowing that I intended to wear them at work, my choice was pretty much limited to buying something in black. There were some rather nice quite girly looking shoe stlye ones, but they were even pricier, so I eventually opted for the 'Optimize' design, a sort of black velvety effect lace up trainer, with a tiny bit of grey and silver detailing, including some grey nodules on the sole of the shoe, and some shiny silver on the lace eyelets. Whilst this was black and smart enough to reasonably pass as shoes at work, there is no denying that there is something a little orthopedic looking about this shoe - it looks rather like the kind of built up shoe I might be offered if I had one leg longer than the other! I think this is largely because in order to incorporate the soft squishy kinetic wedge, the sole does have to be thicker. The shoes have a curved sole, designed to change your posture and the way you walk and to hopefully leave you fitter and more toned.

    Skechers make a variety of claims on the HUGE box these shoes come in . The shoes apparently improve circulation, tighten abdominal muscles, reduce joint stress, firm calf muscles, tone and firm the inner thighs, firm buttock muscles, strengthen the back, and improve posture. The shoes make no direct claim to help people lose weight, but the information booklet included in the box shows results from a number of independant studies indicating that people lost an average 2.78 lbs after an 8 week trial, compared to 0.
