Introduction to Jump Soles

Guest Author - Lori Collvins

Okay, I recently had a request for more information on jump soles so I am going to go one step further than filling your mind with pretty words. As a matter of fact, some of the words I use may not be at all cute. The reason is this: I am going to reviews Jump Soles and give you a weekly update of my progress and my opinion of the Jump Soles.

This being the first day of week one, you first have to know a little about me. I am forty years old (okay, all you younger people can stop giggling now!) and have not been doing a lot of exercising lately so this going to be very painful for me I am sure, not to mention that fact that I LIKE not exercising. However, I cannot give you an honest opinion on Jump Soles without trying them myself, so no pain, no gain.

This morning when I got up, I strapped the Jump Soles to my shoes and began my daily routine. Hey, no problem! There I sat, at the computer, writing articles and answering email. Wow! So far, so good. Well, now the real test begins. (This is probably a good time to note that the instructions do not tell you to start training with Jump Soles by walking around in them off and for the first week, but I wanted to start out with them this way to get used to the feel of them before going further.) Back to the matter at hand. I have been scurrying about doing all my work while wearing the Jump Soles. This included about three trips outside, taking the trash out, sending “snail” mail and bottle-feeding the calf. Yes, I am sure that I looked rather humorous walking in the lot and feeding the calf with Jump Soles on, but I can’t take them off and put them back on every time I move or go outside.

Here is where you are probably hoping I will quit rambling about useless information and get to the point. Okay, I will. The point is this is my first day to wear the Jump Soles and I have only had them on a few hours. I can tell you right now that I am going to be sore tomorrow. I first put them and on and stood up and thought, “This is the reason I don’t wear high heels.” But then I started walking around in them and in a way; it is like wearing high heels …… without the heel. The Jump Soles force you to walk on the front of your feet not the heel. Now while this may sound like it wouldn’t make your calves sore, it is beginning to feel like mine are getting a bit cranky already. As a matter of fact, I can feel a few other spots getting some use to. Also, I had it in my mind that the Jump Soles would not be very stable and it might be easy to turn an ankle in them but I quickly am coming to the conclusion that if that happened, it would be due to not following the directions. These are sufficiently wide to be stable enough. Now when I get to the jumping and skipping part of the training it might be a bit different.

I will continue to use the Jump Soles and post my thoughts and progress so keep checking back and if nothing else, you might even get a good laugh at me!

See you on the court!
