Toning Shoes Law Suit

Thursday, September 29, 2011

This link leads to a Time Magazine article about a class action suit against Reebok for false claims they used in advertising, where they stated that their EasyTone line of shoes would increase strength and muscle in butts, hips, thighs, etc, by 28%.

If you want to be part of this suit, there is contact info online.

To be honest, I bought the $15 rip-offs at K-Mart. They had rounded soles, reminded me of a boat actually, and didn't have the balance ball soles like the Reeboks.

I didn't notice if they ever really made a difference, but I go by what my body is telling me to determine if I'm getting any physical benefits when I work out, and the only time I ever noticed these shoes making a difference was when I walked uphill - because there was no heel to put down to steady myself and it was essentially the same as walking uphill on my toes.

They did improve my posture, though emoticon

    Wow thank you for sharing, I never bought these shoes or rip offs...I was concerned for my knee, plus I never knew when I would walk with them, and figured they would go to the end of my closet!
