Latest in negative heel shoes is the new Shape-ups sneaker from Skechers USA Inc. According to the manufacturers the wedge shape sole creates a cushioned, heel-to-toe rocking motion, akin to walking on sand. The slight instability encourages more use of leg and hip muscles which tone the thighs, calves, buttocks and abdominals. Skechers claim Shape-ups give the wearer a workout, even when just walking.
