I decided I needed another way to increase exercise in my life & what better way than to do it when I'm not actually trying to. I gave in & decided to shell out 50 bucks, of course I logged on to upromise.com & then went to the V.S. website so I got back 3% of my purchase total. It took a little over 2 weeks to get to me, which I wasn't so happy about because that's quite slow considering all other online stores I buy from I get my merchandise within a week. As soon as I got it I tried it on & wore it throughout the house. I could immediately feel the muscles in my calves starting to work harder with each step. I love it so much I think I will get one for outdoors as well. (Being from Hawaii, we don't wear shoes in the house.) The material is soft & it feels like you're walking on cushion. The pink color I got is pretty as well, just a perfect light shade of pink that looks great with jeans & a cute top. I think it would be a great gift for people who can't do hardcore exercise as well. I totally will get these as gifts for my Mom & Grandma's!
