Toning Shoes Article

Its amazing what companies will make and what consumers will buy. On the front page of todays USA Today's website was the article "A revolutionary sneaker, or overhyped gimick?" This article consists of claims these toning shoe companies are making to their consumers and the opinions of actual wearers and doctors. Dr. Gordon and his staff hope that you find this article informational especially if you are considering buying a pair of these shoes. Below is a checklist of things to consider before buying these shoes.

The doctors at Gulfcoast Foot & Ankle Centers recommend that people only try these shoes after:

1. Checking with a podiatrist if they are having foot, ankle, leg or knee problems

2. If they buy them and are having a problem with legs, stop wearing them and see a podiatrist.

3. If they buy them and have no problems then they can continue wearing them.

But most important remember that this shoe will not correct a structural or biomechanical abnormality.
