Tony Little Cheeks fit shoes....thoughts?

Started 1270502938.39 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1296842183.35 by qvcaddition

Just wondered if anyone has them & if they are good or would the ones from the Q, the sketchers shape ups be better!  Tony's are sure a better price!  I need a new pair of walking shoes but would like to try some of the shape up kind. Thanks for any thoughts on these!

I was also planning on getting the sketchers but when I saw the price for these cheeks shoes, I decided to try. Honestly, am a bit skeptical but figure I can always return them if i don't like them

I bought his flip-flops last year when they were a TS.  I love them, have worn them more times than I can count, and they still look new.

I also got the Flip Flops last year when they were the TS and love them. I ordered the TS
today and hopeing that I like them just as well.  I tried the Skechers and didn't like them and didn't like the looks of them with shorts or capri's at all. I think you will like the Tony Littles just as well.

I also figure if I don't like them I will return them. I didn't think I could wear the flip flops when I ordered them but I wear them all the time. JMO of course.

The 3 Degree incline sold me out here in Dallas, Txthe news did a report on the "Higher" ones with a foot specialist his thoughts were over time it would cause your spine to get out of alignment. I bought two pairs one for me & mom.................

Compared to the price of the Sketchers, these are worth a try.  I really wanted them in black, but I waited too long!  I wish they had a waitlist option for this color.

BigA, I haven't heard any reports about the higher elevations.  Thanks for sharing!

My feet hurt even thinking about his shoe.  A negative heel, like Earth shoes, would trigger a major case of plantar fasciitis on me.  Having spent a year unable to walk because of PF, I am very careful with my footwear.  I can't wear a negative heel nor a flat.

I bought them. I have earth shoes which work fantastically for me. I think earth shoes are a godsend, but not happy about the lack of design appeal...I like the Mary Jane style offered by cheeks...so thought I would try. I know lots of folks don't like earth shoes but they have tighten my tush and inner thighs...just put them on and walk around all day...that's why they need to be stylish because for me they feel so comfortable, I want to wear them all the time. I run up and down stairs all day...lots of stairs...with earth shoes...there is absolutely no fatigue. They support the leg beautifully. I hope these do as well as my earth shoes, if not then back to earth shoes.

 That is my concern. Just recently, I had the same problem you had because of running and jogging. I always took it for granted I would be able to run without much concern. Now, I wonder if these types of shoes will have a negative effect later down the line? If you have ever had plantar fasciitis or a heel spur you will forever think carefully about what type of shoe you wear and how you exercise. I had to learn the hard way.

I suffered from plantar fascitis too for a long time.  Finally went to Birkenstock's and they were a godsend with excellent arch support.  And then after a couple of years, my toes became deformed from having to grip the toe supports!  Who would have thought.  My new love is the Earth shoes, but not very stylish.  I have three pairs tho.  Didn't jump on the bandwagon fast enough for the navy Tony Little's due to computer problems.  Would be interested to see the reviews.

I too bought his flip-flops from last year that were a TS.  I can tell a difference in the way I walk whenever I have them on.

They are rubber so I bought them generally to wear on our boat, etc.  I don't wear them out and about much but I wish I would have given yesterday's a try just based on my experience with his other shoes.

You can't buy love but you can adopt it. Adopt, don't shop.

I bought these - I thought. I received my order confirmation, etc. yesterday.  This morning I received a note from HSN that "due to strong demand they are unable to fill my order".  Then the usual blab about if they are available in 30 days they will ship them or the order will be cancelled.  I don't shop HSN - I don't like most of their products.  This is the final straw.  I will give them the 30 days but I'm sure I won't be receiving the product (why would they ship it out at a special price when they can bring stock in and wait a few more days and sell it at a higher price).  I'm very disappointed and have nothing positive to say about HSN!

I purchased the Cheeks and have been wearing them all day on a cement floor in a manufacturing sector and the only complaint I have is they are a little too tight across the top. (I have a high instep) My heel is a little sore from rubbing on the back. perhaps they will stretch. I have a very bad back with a surgically implanted pain control device attached to my spinal cord. I am hoping these shoes will help me through out my day and help minimize my pain caused by other shoes. I will post more later after wearing them for a while. So far so good!

I purchased the Tony Little shoes. I was so excited to get them, they looked cute and I would wear them more often than the Sketchers (don't like the way they look). Well I got them on Monday, the strap that goes across the foot was so tight! I called CS and asked if there had been complaints she said no, but while we were on the line she checked the reviews on the shoes. Everyone was complaining about the short strap. Mine went back today. I hope they own up to the problem and have them as a TS again. There was obviously no quality control, what a huge waste of money...HSN will have to refund a lot of returns as the shoes are defective.

I read the reviews and they were fairly brutal--almost all complaints were about the strap. When I got mine, I fully expected to have to send them back. However, I really had no real issues with the strap. I wore the shoes for a bit and thought they were comfortable. Maybe I just got lucky but I plan to keep them and see how they are long-term

I too thought the strap was too tight. After wearing them for a week now I have either got used to it or they have stretched a bit. I walk all day on cement. Since I have a bad back I thought they would help. To my suprise they have not really bothered my back. I can't say they have improved it because I am looking at surgery but my main point is that they are comfortable enough to wear all day. They offer excellent support. They remind me of the Earth shoes I wore in the 70's!

I do recommend these for supportive footwear.

 Interesting you should say this as I have two friends with PF and both doctors recommended Birkenstocks and both of them have had very good results.

I looked at these, but really if our feet are not normally lower at the heels than the forefoot, why would we want to do this? I guess it is good for some people, but it worries me as to the effect it might have on body and normal foot alignment.

I have TL cheeks two pairs and the clog slippers and two pairs of sketchers. I love them all. I also have the Ryka that tried to copy sketchers, not so good, hurt knees. The TL actually are the most comfortable and hurt nothing.
