I have been wearing this shoe for several
years. It used to be called "Bounce". Everytime I get a new
pair I put them on and they feel like a comfortable
"broken-in" shoe from day one. They run true to size in
every way. They do not claim to be slip proof but I have
never slipped in them and I have worn them on all kinds of
floors under all kinds of conditions.
I have very bad knees and needed a walking shoe to absorb
the impact from walking; this Bounce technology is
fantastic! If I wear any other walking shoes or sneakers, my
knees start to ache within an hour of walking around, but
these Hush Puppies Upbeat are comfortable and my knees don't
hurt when I wear them. They must truly absorb the impact of
walking, saving my knees in the process. I highly recommend
I received my shoes at my job and was able to wear them
right away. The next day I wore them for 10 hours straight
and they were very comfortable. I did not have to break them
in and if anything I found I was walking better once I had
them on. I read the other reviews and that prompted me to
buy them. I would recommend them and in fact have to some of
the women I work with.
With lower back problems and being pre-diabetic, this shoe
is spectacular! I've been wearing this walking shoe for 15+
years and cannot find another style/brand equal. The
downside of this shoe is that the sole seems to wear out too
quickly Otherwise, no complaint.
I've worn this product for years. It performs quite well but
because I wear them at least 10 hours a day 5 - 7 days a
week, one pair lasts about 3 - 4 months when the cushion
mechanism disappears. Shoebuy.com provides excellent service
and I really appreciate the discounts and free shipping!
