I am sorry I missed last week and this will be super quick too but I will come through and as promised I'm posting my review of Avon's version of the MBT sneakery-shoe-clodhoppery-thingy... (see this post from 2 weeks ago).
Suffice to say - I love them. Well, I wish it would suffice to say but I'm going to have to really over-state it to convince you. Because they are so bloody ugly aren't they.
I'd be negligent if I didn't warn you. You don't want to be wearing them when the tall handsome guy gets on the treadmill next to you. I learned this from personal experience. However, if you can keep your rollin' pace a step faster than his, he can see how great your posture is and how round and cute your buns are [in your weird shoes] for whatever reason [yes, your weird shoes are the reason].
Hills are the real muscle challenge but easier than the walking lunges in them. Down hill is also pretty challenging. Today I did almost 2 miles on flat and its all really effective. I just don't want to take them off. I can definitely feel the toning and my posture and height make me fell very queeny. I've learned a thing or two about walking like a queen in West Hollywood. (urgh that was awful I know, but you know who you are, people. ) Further... I now have a more complete understanding of what my high heels have been doing to my tootsies. Not that I care but sometimes I'll randomly find myself walking on tip-toes even in ballet slips or my flops. This is an involuntary habit from all the heels - the rolling sneakers are the first that actually help relax my foot the other direction. ahh. ouch.
Let's wrap this up: This is the "Perfect Product" although due 'solely' to the vom-inducing appearance there'll be no Fashionoclast Seal. For the price and the results its a must have in every color. Mine are white and purple. Wear them with extra lengthy sweats - Abercrombie & Fitch can oblige - to hide the hideous orthopedic looking sole and you're good to roll with the best posture you've ever had! You're not convinced, I know. But walk a mile in my shoes. Just make sure you do it with your cap pulled low over your oversized aviators.
