I own 3 pairs of Skechers shape ups, having fallen in love with them while going through a pregnancy that lasted 9.5 months all throughout the summer! I felt heavy and large and needed to be able to walk a lot since we were going to Disney World in August while I was 7 months pregnant.

Someone had told me about Skechers Shape ups and mentioned that her feet never hurt anymore after wearing them. I immediately purchased Skechers Shape Ups in Mary Janes for the summer and then two pairs of boots for the winter, one being the Skechers Freestyle boot that you are now considering!

Well, I love these boots the best!!! First of all, they look so hot (as in sexy) in black leather without looking too biker-chic, are super comfortable, and support my horrible feet.

I have high arches so other boots with no arch support really hurt my feet (ex. Uggs) and I've been super picky about what I'm able to wear. So when I went through the whole pregnancy in my Shape ups without any backpain or sciatica pain, which I usually get after walking a lot, I knew I had found a winner!

I purposely bought the freestyle Shape ups boot because I already owned a fur-lined boot so I wanted an alternative for when it was warmer outside and I wouldn't want to wear my fur-lined. I also wear these boots when it rains rather than my suede ones for obvious reasons.

The only thing I have to say that is possibly negative is that in their description it says they are knee length- I'm not sure they go up quite that high, certainly not OVER the knee but up to the knee is probably most accurate.

In the description that Skechers gives for this boot the product features are that they enhance your wardrobe, tone your calves, help you lose weight. I'd say that is definitely true for all of the above. I don't think I got "skinny" from wearing these boots all the time but I certainly feel better and a bit more toned when I'm wearing them. And, after I had my baby, I noticed that my weight "fell" off a bit faster than in any of my previous pregnancies.

I really give this boot 5 stars, I can't imagine what you wouldn't like about it. If you don't have big foot arches, you might have a teeny bit longer of an adjustment period if this is your first pair of Skechers shape ups as the rocking mechanism in the sole of the boot can be somewhat awkward but my feet absolutely prefer the rocking mechanism and now I want all of my shoes in my closet to be Skechers shape ups. I really don't want to buy any other shoes besides the shape ups, and I often look at their selection to see what new Shape Ups have come out recently!

I bought these boots to wear on a trip to Prague over the Holidays. They are super comfortable and seem to fit slightly large. The only thing I dislike about them is that they have a very large calf allowance and I've easily got 2 inches to spare. They come only to mid-calf on me and I'm 5'7". Once waterproofed they should be great for walking long distances in cold, wet weather on uneven cobblestone streets.

I bought these shoes back when Shape Ups were the hottest thing. I'm not a sneaker person, so I wanted something that I could wear out. Like most Shape Ups, these shoes provide a slight rocking motion to keep you walking from heel to toe.

I stopped wearing these shoes after I didn't notice any changes in my body (lo and behold, there have been reports of false claims). I don't think the shape-up feature works for leg definition, but the shoes were comfortable to wear. They looked good with some outfits, but I limited them to casual wear. I wouldn't wear them out to a nice dinner or with anything other than pants. More attractive than sneakers, but not as attractive as going-out boots.

I absolutely love these boots! They look so cute and when I wore them for the first time It felt like walking over clouds. And they do make you stand straight! I'm gonna wear them a lot. Thanks. I'm thinking on buying more when they are on sale again.

I love these boots! They are the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. I'm not really a boot person but these shape ups boots from Skechers are great.
There was no breaking in period. They were comfortable the moment I slipped my feet into them & even though my feet are slightly wide, they still had plenty of room.
Get them a half a size bigger for better fit. You'll be glad you got them.

This boot is the same size I always buy from Skechers, yet the boots were at least a half size too big and wearing an extra sock was uncomfortable. It was past when I could send them back, so I ended up donating them.

I walk an average of 6 miles a day and have struggled with heel and foot pain for the past 2 years. I wore these boots on the very first day for 6 miles of totally pain free walking ! I was giddy with happiness. I have ordered another pair of them and wish they came in a larger variety of colors, as I would happily order them all. Perfect city boot for anyone suffering from plantar faciitis, or toe pain. The heel is very comfortable, the width is true to size. I was able to wear normal socks and had no rubbing spots. They only come up to around mid calf (5'7") so I don't know about the 'knee high' claim but I really love them.

I have owned 2 pairs of Skechers Shape Ups sneakers, which are great for working out on the treadmill and exercise bike, due to the cushioning. I also have their sandals for everyday use. So when I saw the boots, naturally I had to try them. I get the same great cushioning, and they are quite warm. The leather is soft and comfortable. I am enjoying comfort all year around!

I rarely write reviews but these boots are exactly what I've been looking for. Extreme comfort and manufactured with qualtiy. I have already worn them out to the barn. My feet stayed dry and they cleaned up easily!
