I've always 'favored' it since I had a volley ball injury in highschool... so.. i can feel that getting stronger. But that's it!
    Needless to say.... i like them because they are very comfy!!!!!! I got the brown pair... i thought those weren't as 'stand-out-ish' as the other colors/pairs....
    =D
    oh btw~ I did feel my butt muscles & leg muscles working when I first got them...
    I bought a pair too! The all black ones. Not the cutest but good for running errands around town. I think they do kinda work! My calfs instantly felt tighter (while walking only). They offer great support too as opposed to traditional flip flops. I wore them all around Disneyland and my feet didnt hurt like they would have in flat footed flip flops. I say if you have the extra $ there sooo worth trying! My frined and mom love theres too. If nothing else for the way your feet feel in them!

    LOL. I watched it. I work with someone who wears them. She doesn't really need a get fit quick gimmick but she is on her feet all day so I know she likes them for the support.

    p.s. as far as the foot pads gimmick. I never tried that kind, and I am sure they do not live up to exactly what they say. if anybody has ever used them (its just a little packet of herbs covered in guaze with a foil backing. Its supposed to look like gunk that gets drawn out of your feet, but if you pour water over the pads you see the same effect on the herbs.)With that said, I have used some a long time ago that a Massage Therapist gave me. I have plantar fasciitis and the pads actually did make my feet feel amazingly better. The massage therapist that gave them to me puts them on her neck or shoulder blades.
    See ya at the beach, I'll be the fat one in the thong.
