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