Some of you might be aware that I applied to be on of the "Mamavation Moms" at BookieBoo.com last month. I was not one of the two moms selected, but have started my own fitness program. Still being involved with the ladies at BookieBoo, I was recently chosen to be a part of the Earth Footwear "Change Your Body in 30 Days" program!
My sweet friend and BookieBoo editor/cheerleader Jen over at Savor The Thyme attended the Mamavation twitter party the night the winners of the Mamavation contest were announced, and she won a pair of Earth Footwear shoes. She chose to give them to me as a gift, hoping that they would help in my weight loss efforts! Can you imagine?! I was floored!
When BookieBoo found out that I had been given the shoes as a gift, she asked if I would be interested in being part of the Change Your Body in 30 Days program. I will be wearing these awesome and sleek looking Earth Footwear Exer-Fit walking shoes for the next 30 days, and will be tweeting periodically, and blogging at day 15 and day 30 about the results I am seeing.
The Earth Footwear site has this to say about their innovative Exer-Walk shoes:
"Kalsø® Negative Heel Technology®
The most defining feature of Earth footwear is Kalsø® Negative Heel Technology® – a unique inclined sole that positions the toes 3.7º higher than the heels. The slight angle shifts weight subtly back over the heels, and can help strengthen and tone the body while also burning calories.
Anatomic Arch Support
To complement Kalsø® Negative Heel Technology®, all Earth footwear features reinforced support through the arch. The arch support maximizes the effectiveness of the heel design in promoting a natural walking motion.
Inside all Earth footwear, a form-fitting footbed provides exceptional comfort with BioFoam™ cushioning. The proprietary material molds to the shape of the foot, displacing and absorbing shock with each step, and is environmentally-considerate, using 70% recycled content."
And finally.. the technology and the research behind the Negative Heel Technology®.
