Doesn't surprise me, where business, money and power are concerned.
Shared over social media to spread awareness, Freya.

Well, I certainly agree with the sentiment; if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't true. I buy a shoe that fits, feels comfortable, and supports my foot. Some do, some don't, regardless of the hype.
Thanks for the post, Freya.

They used to make shoes that actually last a while, but that didn't make them enough money.

I wore the Sketchers Shape-Up shoes for a while but I kept falling down in them so I stopped wearing them.

If their hype was true, then Dr. Scholes would go out of business.
