Since the snow has melted and the weather has become warm, we have been spending a lot of time outside. We play around the yard, visit the local playground and go on walks. Nice long walks through the neighborhood. I love these walks because I get to chat with my girls and I love the conversations we have when we go exploring.
I also enjoy walking as a way to improve my health. It is one of those things I can do without thinking about it too much because I am distracted by our talks.
I got the chance to review some shoes from DAWGS Footwear and I immediately chose the Spirit Toners. These shoes are designed to help tone your body while you walk. And since I am already out walking each day, why not add that extra little bit of help to my routine.
The Spirit Toners fit me very snugly. The size chart on the website was accurate and I got the right size for me. I could tell the difference the first time I walked in the shoes. I have been walking in them for almost a month now and I can feel it in my thighs and butt when we go for long walks. Walking while wearing the Spirit Toner is like a workout within a workout.
The benefits of walking with in the Spirit Toners include:
- Improved posture
- Increased back strength
- Tones and strengthens buttocks, and abdominal and thigh muscles
- Firms calves
- Improves blood circulation
- Reduces joint stress on knees
The shoes are made with a slip resistant rubber outsole that fits your feet and offers a great grip when walking. My feet are on the wide side and I need extra support in my arches so these shoes are perfect for helping to keep my feet formed properly while I move.
The shoes are also antimicrobial, easy to clean and they are odor resistant. Even after walking in them for this amount of time, there is no ‘feet’ smell. They are seriously lightweight, soft and they provide amazing arch support. They have a massaging foot-bed and they are so comfortable to walk in. There is also no chance of slipping around as you walk with these shoes because they have a killer grip.
The Spirit Toners are just one of many styles of shoes that is sold by DAWGS Footwear. They sell a variety of shoes and sandals for men and women and they have both a Canadian website and an American website. The men’s and women’s Spirit Toners sell on their Canadian website for $60 but it looks like there is a coupon code for 25% off all toners right now on the front page of their website.
