I must admit, though it’s kind of taboo in healthful California where I live, that I don’t care much for working out. Go to the gym? I don’t have time, and I don’t care much for watching a bunch of sweaty people grunt and strain. Jogging? Kind of dangerous in my neighborhood considering most people are texting or putting on their makeup while driving, sometimes both. I like to walk, sure, and I primarily do that for exercise. Comfortable fitness shoes are a must, and my new SKECHERS Resistance Runners are just about the most comfortable and energizing shoes I’ve ever worn.
I have a pair of ‘Original’ Shape-ups, which are super comfortable, but they’re also pretty big and thick – I wear a size 14, and they’re kind of Herman Munster-ish when I wear them. When the Resistance Runners came out, I was glad to see they came in a 14, and they’re not at all clunky or heavy. They look sleek and fast, like they were made for running. They’re pretty light weight, and they feel nice and stable. Comfortable? Supportive? Very much so. The design of the sneaker gives you an extra added bounce when you walk in them, almost like you’re jogging even when you’re walking. They feel great for walking, the rocking motion is subtle but definitely there, everything feels smooth and natural.
When someone asks me if I run, my usual response is “only if I’m being chased.” These Resistance Runners are pretty much the only fitness shoe that made me want to run in them. If any sneaker could get me to take up jogging, i’s this one. So do the Resistance Runners give you a workout even when you’re walking and standing? I definitely feel it every time I do any kind of walking in these shoes. Even if it’s just a casual walk, these jogging shoes give your body – not just your feet or your legs – a good workout. The few times I went for a good long walk in them, I felt like I had done some serious working out the next day.
Even better, my jeans are fitting a bit more loose, I feel more energetic, and I don’t mind those long shopping trips with my wife. I’m recommending the SKECHERS Resistance Runner for everyone, not just runners, as a great looking and comfortable sneaker shoe that is also the perfect workout program for an under motivated guy like me.
