    Weird when I bought them under that impression, I was weighing about 120 and I went to the dr being sick ( this is a couple months later ) but since i was wearing the shoes and not eating more i was 98lbs WITH my clothes and shoes on… i thought they worked 😮

    I broke my ankle . then got an infection and came close to losing my leg or death. Anyone know a lawyer on consignment. Poor cant afford lawyer but have plenty of hospital bills.

      Well Maggie, I guess you’re shit out of luck. Pay your own hospital bills. You should’ve bought insurance instead of these shoes.

    Anyone who bought these shoes thinking they would actually help you tone up or lose weight, do not deserve a refund. You can easily research how to lose weight and tone up. It’s called eating right and exercising.

      One can be educated on how to eat right and exercise and still purchase equiptment to enhance their results. Think.

    These are the best shoes I have ever owned. I have had two pairs and just ordered a third. I do not care if they tone my tush or legs. I just wanted comfortable shoes that I could wear all day while on my feet. They are like walking on air. I have tried several other brands of similar sneakers and returned them all. I agree with Beth, if you bought them thinking they would tone you up, you don’t deserve a refund. They are just sneakers not magic. However, they did help me tone up because they were comfortable enough to wear for long periods at the gym where I worked out to get tone and lose weight! If I could sue someone every time I bought a pair of uncomfortable shoes, I would be a millionaire….. Advertising is just that. It isn’t a promise. Do you homework.
