Anyone remember those weird tennis shoes that had a rounded bottom that were supposed to tone your butt and thighs while you walk? What happened to those? I can’t find them for sale anywhere anymore.
Tons and tons of lawsuits about messed up ankles, knees and hips. Those things were a disaster
Were there really lawsuits? I shouldn’t be surprised. Those shoes were messed up and I can definitely see people twisting their ankles or rocking over the side of them. Did people look weird walking in them, or was it a subtle difference that you couldn’t see but that really messed up your joints?
I had those! So many years ago! They felt awful. They looked dumb, too. It was hard to do anything in regular everyday life in them. I tried walking on gravel in them once and almost died from wrenching myself all around.
That’s just awful that you went through that. I know a few people who had them but weren’t really bothered by them, but I read that it was really common to get injuries over time.
