These shoes have no perceptible rocker like Skechers Shape Ups or MBTs, and the sole of the shoe feels solid unlike the squishy bottom on the Reebok EasyTone. I didn't feel the need to alter my gait or pay attention to my feet when walking when wearing the Truebalance shoes, but I am not sure how they are supposed to create, according to the website, "enhanced muscle toning and calorie burning while you walk." In light of the recent study that found that toning shoes don't measure up to their claims, it's not surprising that I didn't feel any increased muscle activity when wearing them. But I do appreciate a good-looking, lightweight walking shoe.
Have you tried the Truebalance shoe? What did you think?
