While we’re on the topic of trainers, we thought we’d tell you about these new designs by Skechers.
Now we’re not overly keen about advocating something that encourages you to buy it because of claims it helps you lose weight but we thought we’d give these a mention.
The company has launched a range of fitness footwear called Skechers Shape Ups. The shoes have a dynamic rocking bottom, soft foam insole and dual-density midsole with a kinetic wedge running the length of the shoe.
This is said to create a soft but uneven surface which engages the muscles in the legs and help you burn calories when you walk.
According to Sketchers, a study of 8 women using these shoes for six weeks showed an overall weight loss of 3.25 pounds, not too bad, but for the £89 cost we think we’d rather sign up to the gym.
