This giveaway is brought to you by BlogWithMom and Therafit Shoes. I was given a pair of Therafit Sneakers to use in facilitating my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
A good shoe is very important to me. Since having major knee surgery in 2012, I really have to make sure to buy quality shoes to keep from having knee issues. I found Therafit and was very interested in reviewing their shoes. I chose to review the Deborah Women’s Sneaker. I have to say that this is the most impressive packaged review item that I have ever received from a company. Check it out:
Can you believe Therafit took the time to wrap and personalize my Therafit shoes? I was so excited, I just couldn’t wait to test them out so I put them on and wore them around the house. I have to say that I felt immediate comfort once I put these on my feet. My knee really has no “bounce” and feels tight and stiff most of the time. Wearing the Therafit shoes put the bounce back in my step! With this said, I have to say that I always look for “bouncy, cushioned shoes.” I am not a fan for flat shoes.
The Therafit shoe is designed for a “personalized fit.” There are three removable inserts that control the “bounce.” I tested out all the different options with the three removable inserts and I quickly decided that I liked to wear all three inserts in my Therafit shoes. Each insert makes a clear difference on the feel of the shoe, but for my knee support, I keep all three inserts in my shoes.
As part of my knee rehabilitation, I attend two Body Pump classes at the gym and see a personal trainer during the week. I made sure to wear my Therafit shoes to the gym so I could test them out on various exercises. The shoes had great grip and were perfect for floor exercises where you had to hold yourself in place such as push ups on your toes, lunges, squats, etc. They were also great for walking and for use on the machines, such as the treadmill. As far as the weight lifting Body Pump class, these shoes were fine until it came to lifting weights above your head. These shoes have a rounded heal and can make you feel as if you could “rock backwards.” I don’t have the full stability in my knee like I used to, so this makes me feel uneasy so I prefer not to wear these shoes to Body Pump.
I am very pleased with my Therafit shoes and will continue to wear them on a weekly basis. I also plan to order another pair when I have worn these out. They have never given me blisters and are not slippery on wet surfaces. I truly give them any A+.
