MBTs, Shape Ups, Rock and Tones, Easy Tones, Ryns... Thoughts?

Between 3-5 times a week I go on this great walk/hike.  I love it so much, it is the best way to get exercise with two kids.  I have read and heard so much about these shoes that are supposed to help your posture as well as give you more of a work out.  The first few times I did our hellish walk I really felt the burn for a few days, while the walk is still challenging (pictures to come next month), I am never really sore after anymore.   I would love to try a pair of these wonder shoes to see if I will feel more of a burn.  Of course I haven't heard back from any of the companies.

So I am going to my readers, have any of you tried any of these shoes?  Do they really work? Any reviews?

Honestly I think that some of them look a little too orthopedic, but if they work, hey I am game.  Please comment if you have any experience with MBTs, Shape Ups, Rock and Tones, Easy Tones, and or Ryns.

Im curious if the shoes actually work. I think some of them look funny so I havent purchased them yet. I wonder though, would they make you walk funny like have a hop in your step?

I wondered about these too.
I searched until I found an unbiased review. CNN didnt let me down.

Overall, from reading this, I wont bother getting them.

When I had an ankle issue, one thing they recommended for strengthening that was free was walking in sand barefoot. Try it, you'll get quite the work out.
