Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Shape ups
« on: March 13, 2012, 03:52:01 AM »
Just wanted to get folks thoughts on the shape up shoes.
Do you they are okay to wear for folks that have BHR?  I found a cute pair and they are comfy, just wondering if anyone has spoken to their doc about them? Used them?  Thank

I wear ShapeUps, MBT and an Avia clone all the time and love them.  My doctor swears by them, he wears MBT's all the time.

Hi Lori, I used shape ups during outpatient PT and they weren't that good for me when I used them.

They were a Christmas present from my ex, and the newest set of sneakers in my closet. In using them, I think I put the wrong emphasis on my foot when doing the exercises, so it may have been one of the things that 'helped' me to get a problem with my foot (along with my doing one exercise improperly).

It was, I think a function of bad timing, using them before my muscles were ready to benefit from them, and my poor listening about one exercise. You're almost at your one year (pre-congrats) so I would think it would be fine, but for me at one month and a half past the surgery, it wasn't the best idea.

I stopped using them and that helped me at the time. My experience was that I did use them, but not as intelligently as you're going to (later in recovery).

I've worn them to do all my walking since the 6-week mark.
I could definitely appreciate and feel that they made more muscles work harder than normal shoes.

I wouldn't wear them to do exercises however, bit too unstable IMO.
MBT's are best and also ugliest lol.
