      I like this new design. They're the only toning shoe intended for running. I've been using this shoe on my short runs and its really a new experience. You have to try them to understand. They're also comfortable and look great, too.

      Comments about Womens Skechers Resistance Runner - Resistor Toning & Fitness Shoe:

      I am a gym owner, bodybuilder and mma athlete. Years of hardcore training gave me chronic achillies tendonitis and a nagging knee injury that forced me to stop my favorite forms of cardio, jumping rope and running. Every time I thought my injuries were healed and I ran or jumped rope, they would flare up again and I had to stop. Then I found these Skechers Resistance Runners. Let me tell you, I am a total fashionista and was horrified at the thought of wearing these (in public) at first. But after reading many reviews, I swallowed my pride and bought a pair. Lo and behold, I can run again, and I can jump rope for an hour with no pain!!! I swear it's a miracle. Sure, I got snickers at the gym from the young 'uns, but I don't care, they work! Plus I don't see anyone else in their 40's jumping rope for an hour so no one's laughing anymore, I got totally ripped using these because I can train harder and longer. Ease into wearing these, as your foot muscles have to adjust to the different feel. I also use these for plyometrics and leg exercises to add the challenge of instability and now my balance is ridiculous, I can stand on a swiss ball. The tendons and ligaments around my injured knee have also gotten much stronger and more stable. I have three pairs now so I can rotate them. They are the best!!!

        Been struggling with shin splints that turned into stress fractures. Per Dr. orders, been off walk/run schedule for nearly 3 months to allow for hearing to take place.

        Just recently started back to walking only, and decided to try these to see if it eased me back into the pavement pounding. NO PAIN. They feel weird at first, but give great support to legs.

          Comments about Womens Skechers Resistance Runner - Resistor Toning & Fitness Shoe:

          After a chronic hamstring problem and a torn meniscus for which I had surgery last October even walking on the treadmill in my former running shoes was agonizing. I had just gotten these to see if they made any difference and, happily, I was able to walk far longer and with far less painful impact later. They have made a tremendous difference for me and I am almost afraid to go back to my old shoes so, for now, I am not! I am running again, and they are heavy, but really absorb impact and I am having zero pain in my hamstring, an unforeseen side benefit of trying to protect my knees. I am not a racer or anything so the heaviness is fine. I would not use them off road but they are great on pavement or fairly even surfaces and wearing them at other times is blissful. I am up to about 4 mile runs and have only good things to say about them.

            Love the midfoot, arch support. Some rocking motion, but requires building small muscle groups. Would not look for "whole new leg & tush" remodel, but very springy, legs and feet don't tire.

              These are VERY comfortable shoes, and very good on your joints. I have double hip replacements, and these shoes make it possible for me to run again. Also, I ran Greenlake with my bodybugg calorie measurement system, and found that when I ran Greenlake with my old tennis shoes, I burned 13% less calories than when I ran with these shoes, as measured by my bodybugg calorie measurement system. These shoes WORK for joint pain and weight loss!

                Run 5 -6 miles 3 times a week for 25 years, have been having a lot of hip pain and back pain last 5 years, tried all different shoes, this technology really works. I use to wear orthopedic inserts for pronation, but not anymore with these shoes. They control pronation or maybe just put pronation to the correct use. If you have hip or back pain or both I bet these shoes will let you run pain free as they do for me. I think they do realign you to run better with the way your foot hits the ground, more mid foot, not on your heel!!. They are a bit heavy for a running shoe but running a little slower is better then not running at all

                  Running seemed to be a thing of the past for me. Injuries made my
                  gait off and hip and leg pain were so severe, I just stopped running.
                  As ads suggest, these realign how you hit the pavement, and a great
                  deal of that pain has disappeared. I probably will never run a marathon
                  again, but at least I can run again. Also, you truly can feel the workout
                  much faster in these. It is extremely comfortable.

                  Intense arch support! Bizarre feel, pressure up into sole of foot....feel it sitting down even. Sore feet and ankles two weeks small muscles getting used to mild balance challenges and pressure points....Now great!. Not sure if good long distance running shoe....I usually wear Asics Nimbus. Half sz up as recommended worked great. Wear walking, gym, running errands. MUCH better design look...black (people comment I have biking shoes on) sleek. More all around slight motion, instead of intense front to back motion of traditional skechers ( tried, did not ever buy them). Miracle for legs? Not sure on that, but helps strengthen small muscles in ankles and calfs[...]

                    These shoes do activate your glutes, hamstrings and calves.

                    I have notied that my left foot is turning inward while I am running , and it makes my ankle hurt...not sure that these are the best running shoe...good for weight training, the design makes it easier to stay on your heels during leg and lower body excercises...
