Shape ups are really just a a pair of shoes, so I don't see how you could have any side effects to wearing these compared to wearing any other type of walkings shoes. Shape ups basically put you off balance and your mucsles are working to keep you balanced and centered. Staying balanced while wearing the shoes uses the muscless in the legs, abs and butt not used with standard shoes. Several nurses where I work wear them daily, and it takes a could days to get used to them.

One review stated that some of her toes became stiff and painful, but she says it had to do with they way her toes were receiving the pressure while walking, so she just switches up her walking shoes to give her toes a rest.
