I saw this article and had to share it with everyone.
Apparently the study testing the effectiveness of the balance ball technology shoes was 5 women walking 500 steps in the shoes and measuring the muscle activity compared to walking in "regular" shoes and barefoot. Really! Only 5 women walking 500 steps. Are they kidding? This study seems more than a bit weak to me. I had been considering the shoes until I read this. Now it seems like they could be just another marketing scam.
Do you any of you have these shoes and if you do what do you think of them? Have you been able to measure any difference after wearing the shoes?
