View Full Version : Sketches Shape Ups ?

05-21-2010, 09:55 AM
I'm going to buy a pair of the Sketches Shape Ups, but I was wondering if there's a difference in the styles, i.e., metabolize, jump start, etc. Any help would be great.
Thanks so much.

This story was making the rounds a few days ago: http://finance.yahoo.com/family-home/article/109576/10-ways-youre-getting-ripped-off . I've yet to see any actual studies that show the shoes do anything other than actually motivating people to go out and exercise.

Thanks for the article. I actually own several pairs of Sketches and like them all so in deciding to get a new pair I wanted to try the Shape Ups more for support and comfort. I have read so many positive reviews in regard to how great they feel, that that was why I wanted to try them. I personally feel that if a sneaker feels good, you're more likely to want to go walking. However, the motivation doesn't come from the sneakers, it comes from the person. I just wondered if there was a difference in the comfort and support in the different styles of the Shape Ups.

From the reseach I did on the sketchers web site it appears that the designa nd results are the same regardless of the style.
I just ordered mine on Wed. from Kohls for $69.90--they were on sale for 99.99 and with a 30% off code and my kohls card they were $69.90

Thank you patsal. From the reviews I read, it seemed they were pretty much all the same, but I just wanted to check and see if there was any difference. I have a coupon for Kohl's for 20% and I also have 25% coupon from Shoebuy so I'm going to see which one works out cheaper.

Good deal at Shoe Carnival if you have one close. My mom & I printed a coupon on their website yesterday that expires today 5/21 for $5, $10 or $15 off. We went to get the Skecher's Tone-up flip flops. They were on sale for $39.98-we bought 1 pair & got the 2nd pr 1/2 off then the coupon scanned for $5 off. So we paid $58.83 for the 2 pairs (which we split-so only $29.41:cool1: a pair). The regular price for these are $54.99. They are so comfortable!:thumbsup2 I think I saw one style of the Shape-ups for $79.99 then 2nd pair was 1/2 off & then you can use the coupon too. But-the coupon expires TODAY!

I don't know of any Shoe Carnival's near me but glad to hear you got such a great deal. Thank you for replying.

They feel great to wear, love the fit BUT have not noticed any difference in the four + months I have had them....
