I don’t think I’ve ever worn shoes that required an instructional DVD.
I got these bizarre convex-soled snakers last month at the SV Moms Group Brand/Blogger mixer party at the Ritz. This morning as I was putting the stuff away, I decided to pop them on my feet. Also, I’ve seen Caryn of Rockin Mama several times since then, and she’s been wearing the shoes every time. I guess I should ask her if they’re working.
Skechers says that the special soles simulate the feeling of walking on sand, so they make you use your calf and glutes more than walking in regular shoes. The DVD has a whole intro with an animation showing the different layers of the shoe. But the take-home message of this video is that every woman pictured walking in her neighborhood, shopping, or pushing a stroller has a really great ass.
You’re supposed to start out small, only wearing the shoes 25-45 minutes at a time until you get used to them. If they give me an ass like that, I’ll wear them 24 hours a day!
