Really…Will a Pair of Sneakers Help You Get in Shape?

Comments (0)
Could it be too good to be true? Can a pair of sneakers referred to as “toning shoes” really help you get a more shapely butt, legs and abs without having to “step foot” in a gym? That is what shoe manufacturers, such as Skechers and Reebok are claiming.

Most toning shoes are specifically designed with a rounded sole resembling a rocking chair that is supposed to stretch the wearer’s leg muscles with each stride. In theory, the toning shoes are supposed to tone muscles, reduce weight and improve a person’s posture by just walking, working and shopping in them.

Apparently, many people are buying into the hype. According to Matt Powell, sneaker analyst for SportsOneSource, sales are expected to be more than $1.5 billion this year. “We’ve never seen a category grow this fast,” he said.

Unfortunately, the claims may be too good to be true. Injuries have been reported across the country from people who claim that they were hurt as a result of wearing a pair of toning shoes. The most common type of injury that has been reported due to the sneakers are strained Achilles tendons.

If you have been injured while wearing toning shoes, contact an experienced Northern Kentucky injury lawyer at the Law Office of Schachter, Hendy & Johnson at (859) 578-4444 or (888) 606-5297.
