OMG!!!!! These shoes are a miracle to me!!!!!
on March 27, 2012
My best friend recently purchased these shoes because she was majorly getting into a new fitness program. When I first saw them (black uppers/hot pink soles), I thought they were hideous looking. She raved and raved about their light weight and comfort.
Well, last year my dog ate one of my New Balance Walking Shoes (very expensive) and I hadn't replaced them till now. I recently adopted a new boxer puppy and she needs lots of walking and exercise. Hence, I needed new walking shoes. I ended up purchasing a 7 1/2 in the Grey/Purple color. Very attractive. They arrived last night and I walked her this morning. I thought I heard angels singing. These shoes are AMAZING. I typically have very poor balance, am clutsy and I walk on the inside of my feet. These shoes had me walking like a pro. Even getting tangled in the leash was no effort in these shoes. Never lost my balance at all. I've never worn shoes that even come close to these. Oh, my back is whacked and I felt no pain while walking or when I got back home. That was a first.
These shoes weigh nothing. I really can't imagine them making the needle move on a scale. They're very flexible, which makes them feel very natural when walking. My only CON is the laces. They're too short for someone with a wide foot. I can simply loosen them, but then there's little to tie up. I took the laces out of the top holes, and they tied much better and felt very secure. The laces feel really cheap. I may replace them eventually.
Anyway, this review may draw few interested parties b/c of it's length, but I just had to say what these shoes have done for me. I'm excited about the future improvement in my walking abilities and extended walking time. ENJOY!!!!!!!!!
