Been looking for a pair of Shape Ups for a while. They are normally £89.99 which is pretty expensive for a trainer, but apparently these things work magic so definitely worth a punt.
This is the cheapest I've been able to find them. I think it also includes a DVD on how to walk correctly. If a 30min walk at lunch in these is even remotely close to going to the gym they'd be well worth it.
Make the most of your walking work-out with the Skechers Shape Ups. With Shape Ups, you can change your life and your fitness without setting foot in a gym. Shape Ups are not like other athletic shoes. This is a new way to walk and exercise.
How it works
Designed to improve your life by changing the way you walk, Shape Ups feature a unique, soft kinetic wedge insert and dynamic rolling bottom to simulate walking barefoot on a giving surface that gives, such as sand.
With the comfort of Shape Ups, you will feel your heel sink to the ground as you step, roll forward as your weight shifts to its center, and push off with your toes. This movement will result in stronger leg, buttock, back, and abdominal muscles as you stabilize your steps.
