The new breed of footwear is shoes designed to improve posture, well that is according to manufacturers, anyway. Mephisto have a new collection of walking shoes called Sano which appear to be turning heads. The overarching goal of wellness shoes is to ease instability in the foot, counter balance weight and tone the muscles of the leg and gluteal region (butt). Sano soles contain both a multi-vibration system and a shock absorber that helps return energy to the foot and as it propels it forward. Sano join Fit Flops and MBTs in a very competitive market which according to experts will not be a passing fad. In previous recession times the walking shoe was glamorised and became a fashion item.
