Therafit: A 12 Hour Shoe For a 12 Hour Day- Review and Giveaway

by Lauren on December 10, 2012

A few weeks ago, I received a fun little package containing, what has become, my new favorite footwear.

Inside, were a pair of brand new Therafit shoes, waiting for me to break them in.

I wrote on my initial thoughts of these shoes when I first received them; however, since then, I’ve had the opportunity to really get some good use out of them, which now leads me to tell you how I really feel.

Just a quick background on the concept behind these kicks:

Therafit shoes were developed by Dr. Lisa Masterson, co-host from the television hit series, Doctors, after she recognized that women are on their feet constantly and for most of that time, they are running around in shoes not conducive to this lifestyle.  She wanted to create a shoe that was not only affordable and comfortable, but one that women would actually want to wear. The main concept behind Therafit is simple, the 12 hour shoe for the 12 hour day.

It’s been about a month, and I can honestly say that I’ve had the chance to test them out in most conditions.  In the winter, I do most of my running on the treadmill so that was the first place I put them to use.  I also should mention that when I run, I prefer a shoe with a lot of stability, particularly in the heel. I suffer from calf tightness and knee problems, and I’ve found that the root of this issue comes from improper shoes.  I’ve tried to go for a minimalist approach in running shoes, but it only led me to injury.

The Therafit shoes were ideal for running, due to the significant focus of shock absorption in the heel itself.  I ran with comfort and ease and felt no pain what-so-ever following my run.

Aside from working out, I’ve also been wearing them during everyday activities and errands.  When I see clients at the gym, I’m constantly on my feet and these shoes provided maximum comfort for hours.

So really, what sets these sneakers apart than any other durable, shock absorbent, comfortable shoe?

Therafit is unlike any other shoe on the market right now due to its Personalized Comfort System (PCS) that is built right into the shoe itself.

It’s better for me to show you this first hand rather than try and explain it…..

(Please excuse the less than desirable appearance.  This was the first time in 3 days that I felt well enough to shower, so it’s not my proudest moment)


Now, a few exciting things to share with you:

  1. Therafit is hosting a Twitter Chat this Wednesday, 12/12/12 at 12 PM EST.  To find out more about this campaign, who else is getting involved, and a chance to win your own pair, make sure you follow Therafit and tune in on Wednesday, #therafit.
  2. Because Therafit is built on the concepts of comfort, customer, community and charity, it puts a high focus on giving back.  That is why every purchase, Therafit will donate $1 in their One Step Forward Campaign.  As a special offer to my readers, they have graciously offered a special coupon code that results in $5 off your purchase PLUS, they will donate an additional $5 to the St. Jude Children’s Hospital.  Just use the code TherafitLP at checkout and your discount will be applied.
  3. One last thing. Because there is always an opportunity for one of YOU to try out your very own pair, Therafit has offered to give away one pair of their shoes to one reader.

I’m always looking for “better” shoes and trying different brands. I really like the appearance of the Athletic Deborah in Red.

Hopefully you are done with cold and flu season now!

Nikki December 10, 2012 at 12:50 pm

I’m kind of in love with the red ones! So cute! And I have done the SAME THING with minimalist shoes — thought that they would prevent shin splints, but instead my heals and feet are shot! Back to my stable Mizunos!

Lauren December 10, 2012 at 12:51 pm

Deborah in red :)

Anonymous December 10, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Every product descriptions says they’re a great walking shoe. I’m a little gun shy that they would hold up to a run. I’ve had knee and tendon issues. What are your thoughts?

Kristin December 10, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Love the Deborah in pink!! Super cute!!

Jill December 10, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Deborah in Pink! Love!

Katie @ Talk Less, Say More December 10, 2012 at 1:04 pm

I would go for the Deborah (maybe red or pink). It sounds like we have very similar issues (?) with running in terms of knee problems and calf cramps, so I would hope that since those shoes worked for you, they’d work for me too!

Hilary December 10, 2012 at 1:11 pm

I like the Deborah – red shoes!

Jessica Daly December 10, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Tessa December 10, 2012 at 1:24 pm

I would absolutely choose the Deborah Pink!

Amanda December 10, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Such cute athletic shoes. I’m an avid runner and I’m always looking for stylish shoes that still provide me with the support I need for the amount of miles I put in during the week. It looks like you may have found a perfect blend of both! :)

I’d love to sport the “Deborah Black/Pink” shoes!

Emily December 10, 2012 at 1:54 pm

what an awesome shoe – i like the the deborah black/pink or the deborah red

Larissa December 10, 2012 at 3:36 pm

I can 1000% relate to the tight calves and knee problems. In fact, my tight calves has lead to a bigger circulation–type problem to my feet. (Apparently, the muscle get’s tight enough that the nerves get cut off). Compression gear and a LOT of stretching helps some, but I have a feeling this will be an long–term problem for me.

With that said, I would LOVE to try this shoe! I like the Deborah – Red ones the best.

Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!!

Kristin December 10, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Deborah pink!

Carri December 10, 2012 at 4:04 pm

I would love the Deborah in black and pink. I joined a gym a few weeks ago and started with walking but now am training to run and am about 5 days in. I have heard that shoes make such a difference when running ESP on a treadmill. I am glad you came back to give another review on these and I’d be so happy if I won them! Thanks Lauren!

Emily December 10, 2012 at 5:27 pm

vanessa glynn December 10, 2012 at 8:13 pm

I hope to win a pair, not for me, but for my mother. I find it fitting because her name is Deborah and I know she’d love the “Deborah black and white”. My mother literally works 10 hour days constantly on her feet, busting her butt. She’s the hardest working person I know. She broke her ankle a year ago and, of course, went back to work too early. She definitely could use a pair of shoes that could outlast her day and provide some comfort and support!!

Danielle @ itsaharleyyylife December 10, 2012 at 8:15 pm

I love the red ones!

laura December 10, 2012 at 8:36 pm
