Wearing Toning Sneakers

Has anyone had any experience wearing performance sneakers? The kind that are supposed to tone your legs, etc. when you wear them. Did they work for you? I've been thinking of getting a pair, but don't know if it's just hype or not. I know regular exercise needs to be done, but it would be an extra bonus if they helped tone when I just wore them walking around. If you could please include the brand name of the sneakers you have, that would be good also. Any help or advice is appreciated. Thank you!

I have read a couple reviews that stated all they do is strengthen the feet and ankles. That is all I know about them.

I tired a pair, I find them very uncomfortable to wear regularly, you really have to pick ur feet up high or they drag, and I have a bit of a limp, so dont work for me.

I have to agree with Carmen........I think you can use them if you go walking on a completely flat surface but they are clumsy feeling to me. I too, have a limp and they don't work so well for me either. If I had it to do over, I probably would not buy them again. I have heard other people say that they helped their lower back. If you wear them around the house, and you bend over to do something, the tendency is to want to just keep going forward! lol..........might not work that way for someone younger but for me, my balance is not super good.

I thought about buying a pair for awhile. Then Dr. Oz did a segment about exercise equipment, whether it was hype or really worked. One of the things was these shoes, which he admitted he wore himself. The expert rating this stuff said that it was complete hype, that they didn't do anything for you. So, I don't really know based on experience, but I'm not wasting my money to find out either!

I'm a waitress and on my feet 10-12 hours a day,and love these shoes. I don't know if they toned anything or not, but they sure help my feet, legs and lower back feel better. They do take some time to learn how to walk in them though
