Shoes for your butt. What will they think of next?

May 6, 2011 at 7:13 pm 5 comments

As an early Mother’s Day gift, my in-laws offered to pick up a pair of running shoes for me at Costco since I don’t have a membership.  I am not a picky person, so I didn’t really care what they looked like.  All I heard was “Adidas” and “$36”, and I was sold.  They ended up selecting a few different brands for me to try on, including a pair of those butt-toning shoes.  You know the ones?  They look like platform sneakers and they feel REALLY WEIRD, like the ball of the foot is on a downward slope.  Apparently they are supposed to singlehandedly transform you into Gisele Bündchen, so I figured I’d give them a whirl.  “Happy Mother’s Day to me!” says my soon-to-be-toned butt.

A toned butt can be yours for the low, low price of $26.00 CAD

During the night after first wearing them, I felt quite sore in my calves and butt.  At first I forgot about the shoes but then I quickly remembered — my butt was being toned!  Of course I would be sore!  Metamorphosing into Gisele has got to be at least a little bit painful, am I right?

It’s only been a couple of weeks so I haven’t noticed any visual difference in my legs and butt, but I certainly feel like walking is more of a challenge.  Muscles I haven’t felt since the late 1990s feel much more sore and tight.  Honestly, I don’t have high hopes that my Brazilian supermodel career is about to take off, but wearing these shoes has been an easy and interesting way to spice up my daily walks.
