Great shoe but not good for Arthritis, 15 Feb 2010
I bought these shoes as they proclaim that they take the pressure off your joints. They probably do but more in an less impact on your knees when walking on pavements, but because of the emphasis that you need to put on the front of your feet when walking in them, they actually hurt my arthritic feet more than normal trainers. For this reason I had to return them and wouldn't reccomend them to anyone who has trouble with the balls of their feet.
All this aside, the time I took trying them out, they do seem to do what they say on the box. I walked around the house in them in the manner described in the instructions and found that they were indeed making my lower leg, thigh and buttock muscles do more work as well as making me assume correct posture. I think that if I had been able to use them they would have been fantastic. My partner Ian tried them briefly and decided that he would probably purchase a pair himself in the near future.
