Last year (yes, it has been many, many months) I asked my readers what they wanted to know or any questions they had for me. I am slowly researching and getting through the questions. And if you asked me a question, I haven’t forgotten and I will get to it.
Penny wanted to know “if those funky tennis shoes–the ones that are kind of curved on the bottom, so that your heel goes really far down as you walk–really work or not?”
I am willing to try out a pair of “toner” shoes to see if they really work or not. But they are spendy and not something I would normally want to buy on my own.
So, my dear readers, I have done a little research and have come up with four possible shoes to try out. But I need some help to buy the shoes.
Here is what I propose: Read the minor descriptions of the shoes I have picked out. For every dollar you donate to me you get a vote on a shoe. For example, you donate 5 bucks you get five votes and you can use those votes all on one shoe or more than one shoe. Before I can purchase the shoes I need at least half the cost of the shoe. So read, review, donate and vote.
(Under the ABOUT ME on the right you will see Shoe Review “Donation voting.” Click on the drop down menu and select an amount to “donate.” Then add to cart. When you are reviewing your information before payment you will see Note to Seller: Edit. Click on edit and vote for the shoe(s) there.)
