Toning Shoes – Important Myths About Buying Toning Shoes

I love when patients come to me with advertisements, especially about shoes.  The latest trend is “toning shoes”.  I’m sure you’ve seen adds with Joe Montana or beautiful models in exercise clothes walking with these thick-soled shoes that are supposed to tone you calves, thighs, and buttocks.

I’m drawn to these advertisements as much as you, but I have a responsibility to my patients when it comes to shoes so I dug a little deeper into the toning shoe topic.

At Desert Foot Surgeons, we want our patients to be well informed so below is a link to an article about these shoes.  If you have thought about purchasing a “toning shoe”, please read this article.
