I was introduced to the shoes at the Type-A mom conference last year and I fell in love with all of the various styles. But I admit, I wasn’t quite sold on the idea that having a 3.7 degree incline built into the shoe with the toes positioned higher than the heel would actually help to shape me up. So, I just stuck to my old reliable and exercised hard in my regular sneakers.
This fall I was asked if I wanted to try out the line and decide for myself. Since I’m still curious I of course said yes. I was sent a pair of Acclaim boots to try out. Check it!
I love them from a purely fashion point of view. They are so nice, great leather, warm and above all comfortable. I suspect the comfort is due to the bio-foam cushioning and the arch support in the boots. On a recent cool day in Atlanta I decided to take them for a test drive. I have to tell you that with just my normal walking around town and doing errands I could feel the difference. Especially in my left calf, I had run in the morning and I could totally feel my muscles working when I wore the boots. And I know for a fact it was the boots because I wore another pair of shoes for comparison purposes and didn’t feel my muscles working.
I’ve decided to hold off on wearing my boots until after my half-marathon on November 17th. I like to give my muscles a rest after running but once the race is over, I will be styling in my boots and exercising my muscles. The best part - no one will know and my body will benefit!
Have I intrigued you? Would you like to be the proud owner of a pair of these boots? Well, I have a Giveaway sponsored by Earth Shoes.
