Toning shoes have been around for a while now, but I hadn’t really taken much notice until Crocs came out with their own range and in particular, the Crocs Tone Skylar Flat. Similar to my beloved Malindi Crocs, these cutie pumps are smart enough to wear in the office, comfy enough for long lunchtime walks and light enough to wear on holiday…
Sweet, right? Here’s a comparison of the Skylar (in Light Grey/Rose) with my black Malindi – they’re a slightly tighter fit than the loose fitting Malindi, but as with all Crocs, they conform to the shape of your foot for a custom fit. Mine only took a couple of wears to become super comfy, with or without tights.
So how do Skylar flats work to tone your legs? Crocs say that their ”Sculpted outsole creates a rocker effect while you walk that can help initiate key muscle activity to provide toning benefits. [The] toning ring is designed to help moderate movement and provide support contributing to increased muscle activity.” Watch a video about the Crocs Tone Skylar Slingback Flat here.
I wish I’d done a before and after photo of my legs, but alas, I was too excited to start wearing them! I can tell you though, that there’s a marked difference in muscle tone and my legs feel stronger as a result of wearing these a couple of times a week for the past few weeks.
They also have the usual circulation nubs on the foot bed and are super comfy for all day wear, I love them!
