I wanted to get this pair of Reeboks because they look cool, catchy. Plus….I saw the Zumba instructor and some other students wearing them.
I tried them on at the store couple weeks ago. They are light, as if you are not wearing any shoes at all. Also, I jumped on my feet and did some Zumba moves (I was away from all eyes, except for my friend who was with me), the support for my already very well abused heels and feet, were so-so. Sigh…I thought it would helped with my plantar fasciitis but not too much.
I had bought a pair MBT shoes. They are supposedly the best for folks with plantar fasciitis. Hah, what a joke, the pair of MBT’s I bought was a waste of my $125. It was hard like a rock. I gave it 1 month to break it in which I thought would be enough time. I was told one do not need to break them in since these shoes are very cushion-y. Not for me. It could be the model I bought that’s not the right one for me. That’s the thing about buying them online! I am still wearing them for walks but not for too long walks. I definitely cannot wear them for my second job which involves pretty much 4 hours of standing.
My two other pairs of Sketches are wearing out – those Shape-Ups S2 Lite. They are not cushioning my heels very well plus holes on the back of the heel. I do wear them every day – to work at both jobs, walking and Zumba. I will continue wearing them for now till I decide if I want to spend the bucks for Reeboks ZigFly.
