The name of the shoes with the spring heel.

I have seen people wearing these black "sneakers" that have a spring for a heel. I have quizzed them on what they were for and I've been told it is to prevent back pain for those who are on their feet for long hours. I never got the name of the company who makes them or what they are called. I have looked in sporting goods stores for them but can't find them. Does anyone know what they ae called and where I can find them? I manage a major retail store and have chronic back pain. Needless to say, being on my feet all day doesn't help.

You mean the Nike Bo-ing sneakers (remember the commercials- BO- ING- BOING. BO- ING BOING... AHH!!!!!! Can't get it out of my head now!!!!). Those are the first that pop into my head... hope that helped.

Thanks, I haven't found them in stores. Am I just blind too? Maybe I need to go to that forum too.

LOLOL. I can't say if I've seen them around recently.. can't really recall... But try stores like Athletes Foot, Finish Line, Champs, maybe Journey's... And definitely check out the Nike website.
