Sketchers

  1. I just wanted to leave a complimentary thread about the new Sketcher sneakers advertised on television with the rocker bottom-which is very similar to MBT. I purchased two pair last week, a white for work and black for casual wear and they feel like heaven. I was interested in purchasing MBT at first, but they were too expensive. Thank goodness I waited, because now, I was able to get these for $99. each. Well worth the money, folks!

    I am in total agreement with this. I haven't been able to bite the bullet and actually buy some yet, but I walked around in the store with them on for quite some time - I think the salesperson was wondering if I was ever going to take them off!!

    Avon sells the rocker-bottoms also. One of our nurses got them. She said she woke up in the am without hip or back pain! The commercial for the Skechers looks good and I think I'll go ahead and get some this payday!

    If you are talking about the Sketchers Shape Ups, they are WONDERFUL!! I got a white pair for work, black for home and they even made sandals---got those in dark brown. Worth the money to me!!

    Thanks for the information on Sketchers. I have been thinking about buying a pair. Black is my choice of color and am very glad to hear they come in black also.

    Yes. Thanks for the info. I'm in the market for new shoes and have seen the ads for these -- but haven't seen the actual shoes in the stores yet. I was waiting to try a pair on before spending the money on something else. I'm getting tired of waiting and was wondering if they were worth it.

    I guess I'll just have to wait some more. Eventually, they will come in and I can try them on.

    Well, I've had my rockers from Avon (Curves) for about 2 weeks now and LOVE them!

    I seem to be standing taller with improved posture. Received many questions about them. With tax, I paid $54. I've heard the skechers are around $100. I would recommend them. They also come in wide widths....

    Hey, if they'd help me shape up a little like the ad says they're supposed to, they'd be worth the money......but they look like they are heavy and not really easy to move in. I have some balance problems, plus I like a shoe that's light---I drag around enough weight as it is.

    I tried a pair of these shape up shoes on tonight and they seemed very comfortable. I wanted to see how other nurses liked them. More comments?

    I have 5 pair. Two white ones for work, one black pair for casual wear, two sandels-one black one brown. Totally addicted.

    So...if I wear these, as I walk around, I will lose weight? What's that part of the advertising all about?

    They even claim to help you sleep better at night....

    I don't think that there will be a weight loss like they advertise, but I can say that they made my feet feel better enough to walk around more if I wanted to.
