With New Year's resolutions right around the corner the search begins for the magic bullet. So how about a magic pair of shoes?
Foot Solutions, a Marietta-based store that specializes in shoes for problem feet, claims they have a shoe that will greatly reduce cellulite in just 30 days.
The shoe, called the Masai Barefoot Technology shoe, or M.B.T., is being touted as “a mini gym for your feet.”
Ray Margiano, founder of Foot Solutions, says the shoes can reduce a woman’s cellulite by 50 percent in 30 days. “Most people just can’t believe that a shoe could do that,” he said. ...
The shoe was developed for training athletes for the Olympics and the cellulite claim is based on the shoe’s design. Foot solutions podiatrist Dr. William Faddock says because the shoe forces you to align your body differently, you use different muscles.
Can I just ask if anyone has tried these shoes? I walk four to five miles a day and have done so for the past three years, I brouhgt a pair of these in a trainer style four months ago and believe me THEY WORK. Don't ask me how but I've not only reduced the cellulite but lost inches off the thighs. I know I sound like an advert for them but I have no vested interest. I shall get a pair of the sandals for Summer. Don't knock things til you've tried them i say. Awl.
