    I love these shoes more than any other shoe I have. So much comfort, in a shoe, it is more like a dream. Doctor told me to walk daily which I started but never really had much fun. Then my son bought me these shoes. He said he has heard a lot about them and I should give it a try. First I didn’t like them at all by look, but when I tried them they were super comfortable. I did feel funny walking in them at first but then I got use to of them. I loved the rolling or exercising effect you get when you walk in them. The width and size is perfect. They fit very nicely. It has excellent arch support and the result is excellent. Now I walk 7 days a week in these shoes and I love walking. I don’t feel any pain in my feet. I could feel its effect in my stomach and legs. These are very impressive indeed.

    I have Plantar Facitis and my husband pushed me to get these. They work great for relieving the pressure of walking. I am on my feet all day on concrete at work and these help tremendously. I have a high arch also and I dont use any inserts with these because when you walk the cushion seems to push the support it has into my arch for support. Going to get another pair for when I’m not at work.

    I wear my Shape Ups on my power walks and to the office. The height and softness of the sole took a few minutes to get use to, but I love them now. I have received complements on how cute they are. I’ve had 2 knee surgeries and my knees normally hurt for at least a day after a 4 mile power walk. My knees don’t hurt when I wear my Shape Ups.

    These shoes are positively amazing! They have absolutely no break-in time. I received them right in time for our busy season at work. I’m working on my feet 12+ hours a day, and these shoes keep me going. My only issue was that the sizing was a bit off for me. With all shoes, even SKETCHERS, my size ranges anywhere from a 9 to a 10, so I got a 9 1/2 and it’s a bit too snug for me. So if you’re stuck with a decision like mine, I’d say go a half size up.

    This is my first pair of Skechers and I am very pleased with my purchase. I have a “desk job” and do not exercise like I should. Any walking I do, I want it to be beneficial. With the Optium Shape Ups, I get just that. Many co-workers also have (different style) Shape Ups. They are catching on fast !!! There’s a style (or two) right for anyone.

    First of all, let me add that I am overweight, and happen to work the 12 hour night shift at a hospital, and am a college student by day. These Shape-ups are the best thing a busy gal could ask for! I can already feel the shaping/lifting of my legs & rear end. Thank you Shechers for being there for me yet again! Keep em’ coming.

  7. Sharla says:

    I like how they make my body work while wearing them. All shoes should be designed this way. I think they are fun to walk in (especially while buzzing! Whoo Hoo!) I can feel the tension in my calves and glutes. I am someone who loves to walk for exercise and this way I can maximize the benefits! They will not work miracles- you still have to exercise but you are working harder without really trying and that is cool. I got the solid black ones and though I do NOT think they are stylish, they are not all that noticeable under some jeans. I walk and stand a lot at work and I wear them under my jeans/pants. I find them super comfy and enjoy them a lot.

  8. Tammy says:

    I was concerned about wearing Shape Ups because I havve MS and equalibrium issues because of my MS, I was afraid the feeling of walking in sand would make me dizzy if not fall. But they’re great! They’re comfortable and add a work out to my walking. I’m waiting for some great sandal styles! By the way, my chiropractor finally approves of my shoes!

  9. Sandra Dee says:

    A friend at work got a pair and said they felt amazing. Feeling left out of the new shoe craze, I went and bought a pair as a replacement for an old pair. All I can say is Wow!

    They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I don’t want to take them off. I’m considering buying different styles and have begun to pass the word around. Another woman here is considering buying her first pair!

    These shoes are great for all day wear, especially if you work on your feet all day. The black suede style in particular has replaced my corporate casual “man shoes” that used to kill my feet all day.

    You may get a little wobbly until you get used to them. Even if they didn’t have the potential to lift and tone your butt, they are well worth the purchase! I have not experienced one single foot discomfort since I put them on and I have a wider foot than most.

    Thank you again….a million thank yous.. I cannot praise these shoes enough.

    I had a bone spur removed in Oct. of 09 and could not wear regular shoes, my girlfriend said try these and you will see a difference. I do have an issue with my weight and I tried to wear my regular shoes after my surgery and could not. The pain was unbearable so, with the help of my friend, we ordered our shoes and I have not taken them off since. It’s like walking on air. People stop me when I’m walking from store to store at the mall and they ask me do they really work? I tell them yes they do!

  11. Peewee says:

    I have been using them everyday because I am on my feet at wok for 8-10 hours. Ive tried all kinds of shoes to tell help with the aches and pains of standing all day. These shoes have helped me quite a bit and a few of my friends at work have also purchased them to help with feet, ankle, knee, and back aches. WE all reaaly like the product. We all work for the US postal Service. Thanks for a great shoe. I’ve even had strangers when I’m out and about ask me my opinion about them and they are interested on buying a pair. thanks, Sandra Chatham

  12. Blue Eyes says:

    They fit me true to size and width and the heel fits good so they don’t slip up and down. Walking heel to toe with the rocker bottom gives me a good overall workout and helps me walk straighter. I’ve had them for 1.5 months and have lost 4 lbs. That includes watching what I eat & walking in Shape-Ups 4 days a week and built up to walking 30-35 min. a day so far. I will definately buy this style again.

  13. Linda says:

    The fit is great no rubbing or sore spots even on my first 10 hr day(i’m a waitress). the design is simalar to another shoe these replaced, the style and price of the other brand had changed so I went looking for an alternative. The others are a bit rounder on the bottom. The leather on the Skechers is nice and soft, the fit is great, no ordering 1/2 larger Skechers are true to size.

  14. Aristo Kitty says:

    I have severe knee problems. I am hoping these shoes will help. The right shoe fits perfectly, however the left shoe is about 1/2 size too big. I wear heavier socks because I am diabetic and that does help some. I do love the way they feel when I walk and I do feel the pull in my calves and thighs when I walk, and that is great.

  15. Sammie says:

    I am loving the shape-ups, I wear them to work for 10 hour days and I am already seeing a difference after just 3 weeks!! would recommend these shoes for anyone who has a tough time fitting workout to their schedule. Wear them whenever and wherever, the pain is not bad but I’m sure it’s different for everyone; for me I feel like I do tons of “butterflies” when I get home and sit down. My legs have already shown a difference in getting slimmer and I can feel my “love handles” shrinking as well.

  16. Ami says:

    I have been dealing with pain caused by degenerative disc disease in my lower back – I can’t tolerate ANY impact exercise, so my body is getting weaker every day. I was very worried that these shoes would hurt my back, but I wanted to try them in case they could actually help me tone my legs.
    The salesman guaranteed that I could return them if they worsen my back pain, so I went ahead and bought them. After about 5 minutes of wearing them, my back pain DISAPPEARED!!! I am stunned by how quickly the shoes completely took the pressure off my lower back! My leg muscles and abs could feel the difference immediately, because I am so out of shape, but I know it’s going to be great for me in the long run! In the short run, however, my prayers have been answered by these shoes – They corrected my standing posture, and the squishy sole really absorbs the impact of walking. If you have low back pain, TRY THESE SHOES!!!
