yeah I'm of two minds about this stuff.

Consumers should do their own research... or at the very least read the ingredients before you take the companies word for it that it's healthy.

HOWEVER, I don't think companies should be able to say and advertise things however they want no matter how false they are. False advertising is a problem.

well... there should be a lawsuit because those things are deadly lol. I stopped wearing them around the house because I've slipped and fallen in them way too many times. I won't let Hannah wear them either lol. You step on a drop of water and you are going arse over elbows lol

I just bought a pair on clearance! While I have no illusions that they will magically make me more fit, they seem to keep my plantar faciitis from flaring up. Any shoe with a thick, inflexible sole seems to, though.

You know... my MIL found the same thing. She doesn't have plantar faciitis but has a heel spur that causes her pain and crocs and those sketchers shape up sandals help with her flare ups

I bought a pair of generic toning shoes and found they work well. Toned up my bum and thighs very well. Granted, I walk 9 - 12kms in them 3 times a week and watch what I eat, but for a fast walking shoe, I love them.

I bought a couple of pairs of the Fila version at Ross while I was having to be on that concrete floor at the store all the time and I do have to give them credit for the fact that my sciatic nerve quit doing whatever it was doing.

Well, I had the Reebok ones, and they were super comfy for a few months. Then my foot started to hurt a little...then a lot. I now have the never-healing stress fracture from hell and severe plantar fasciitis (as in, I'd like to saw my foot off with a dull hacksaw kind of pain). I've seen several doctors and physical therapists, including an orthopedist and one of the top podiatrists in the country, and ALL put blame on the shoes (especially since that was the only change in my life).

Now I've got to live with this foot, and it's just a big cycle with the stress fracture. The chronic pain is awful.

I would rather have my feet amputated than wear any of these types of shoes.

From what I gathered from my doctors and therapist, my injuries have been quite common among people wearing these shoes. Podiatrists and orthopedists HATE them.

(for the record, I didn't buy them to magically lose weight. They were originally quite comfortable for my high-arched feet.)

I think the croc people are punished daily knowing they are making the most hideous footwear known to mankind. That can't be easy to live with

OH! I'd forgotten, too, that one of the reasons I got them was because the ball of my right foot was so incredibly tender and sore -- I though I might have had a stress fracture. They made that bearable and it had started to heal up.

Weirdly, when I started taking bellydancing it completely went away. The first couple of weeks it hurt to be up on the balls of my feet, but I noticed it was gradually getting better and better and it's now completely gone.
