Utter crap. I am on the point of demanding my £50 back. If they do succeed in helping anyone lose weight, it is because they make your feet sweat with the ridiculous cheap plastic they line the uppers with. Yuck.
they're not as ugly as crocs though & waymore comfortable than birkies.
I wear them, I think I've worn them pretty much non-stop last summer & this summer. I can also run in them (which is handy when late).
I have the cloth/fabric uppers & my feet have never sweated in them. I do have odd tan lines on my feet though. They definetly make walking (or pushing a pushchair in a hurry) harder work. Not examined my thighs enough to notice a difference in tone.
Coming a bit late to this one but I have the Earth Shoes version which are slightly less ugly and really do work at least a little bit. My legs ache after a day in them, although that might not be a good thing!
The most comfy sandals I've ever worn - and I was a birky fan. Also I really think that my back is better after a couple of months of wearing them and my dh thinks my posture is better. Not sure about the toning effect though - but I think it might take a bit more than a shoe to do that!
I bought mine last summercos of their colour but must say they're so comfortable. I'd never wear normal flat flipflops all day the way I've worn these. Yes, do have dodgily tanned feet but hey. A bit of jif on the white soles and I'll def get a 3rd summer out of them next year. R PS Weight loss and toning I'm not sure about, comfy good quality flipflops, yes.
