I LOVE my Lugz Shifter Ballistic Back to School Shoes!

Its back to school to time and you know what that means, new shoes! Be sure to check out Lugz  shoes  for men, women, and children! They have some amazing new arrivals, you wont want to miss. They are great quality and fit wonderfully, all a great price! I have Lugz that I have had for years that are still in great shape. Lugz are are a favorite of my husbands, and a favorite of mine. They offer a large line of quality work boots, casual shoes, sneakers, and more! Lugz has a huge following including hip hop stars, mixed martial arts fighters, Orange County Choppers, boxers and many more. If you have worn Lugz - you know why their following is so vast  -unique styles, comfortable fit, and great value. I love the bright colors and up to date styles. I was lucky enough to review a pair of Lugs from their Womens New Arrivals for my nieces back to school wardrobe. 


The line of Lugz women shoes & boots is pretty big- so many unique styles to choose from, it was hard to choose just one. Good news is, I can order more online. My niece had a hard time deciding between the Shifter Ripstop and the Shifter Ballistic, both are super in right now (according to the 14 year old lol) so she was torn. She really liked the bright Sour Blue & Hibiscus but eventually decided on the Shifter Ballistic in Black - so she could get more use out of them she says :) She has already been wearing them around and its not even back to school yet. They go great with jeans, school uniforms, and slacks. She wore them to the mall and says they are super comfy! 

Lugz also has some fab new mens shoes for all the men and boys on your back to school list. My husband has his eye on the Charcoal Empire Lo - they are nice! Very versatile as well and would go with slacks or jeans. He can even wear them to work. 

The Lugz website makes shoe shopping super easy and absolutely pain free! Shop by color, material, size, width, sale, key word and more. Whatever you are looking for- you are sure to find it with ease. My order came well packaged with care as not to get damaged in transit and my order came fast! Nothing beats getting your order quickly when you know you dont want to wait! And their website is 100% protected with SSL Encryption- shop easy, shop safe on the Lugz website!

The workout contains a warm up & cool down as well. Linda works out alone in a studio gym. You will need a chair, a stretchy band, and a fitness loop for these workouts. Modifications come up on the screen for some exercises.

Exercises include: punch & side toe taps, abduction & punch downs, squat -abduct with rainbow arms, mambo front & back, 1/2 circle leg sweep & tap, mambo chasse, V step adding squats, heel digs, rear leg taps & raises, and side to side shifts. Linda uses big arm movements and the pace is quick so your HR stays up there!

I rate these high intermediate routines. I definitely felt the burn on all of these segments. TONS of variety, chapters, and premixes ensures I will get a ton of use out of this DVD. Great unique exercises. Linda provides excellent instruction & form reminders. I really enjoy Linda's instruction style and look forward to trying her other workouts. I received this DVD to review.
