Beware of Toning Shoes
Expensive toning shoes may seem like a quick fix for necessary exercise, but they can cause more pain than gain. Researchers have found that wearing toning shoes makes it more likely that you will experience sore, aching joints. These shoes make it impossible for your feet to flex naturally; they flatten your arch and cause you to absorb more impact from every step you take. Ouch!*
Avoid toning shoes which can cause ankle, knee and back pain. Instead, wear proper-fitting, supportive athletic shoes and after stretching, take a walk on a stable incline.
