Reebok Women’s EasyTone Reeinspire Toning Shoe
I’m not a big fan of tennis shoes, I prefer heels or wedges, flip-flops in the summer, but with all these new toning shoes coming out, I decided to give them a try. I walk all over the hospital during the day at my full-time job, so I knew I could get some use on the shoes. The pair I decided on was the Reebok Women’s EasyTone Reeinspire Toning Shoe. There are balance pods on the shoes that will make you feel off balance when you walk. It has been compared to feel like you are walking in sand. Since you are off balance, you will tone your calves, hamstrings, and gluteus- even when just standing still. With the Reeinspire line, there is also foam cushioning that will reduce the pounding your feet endure on a daily basis, even if you are just walking. I will say these shoes are extremely comfortable. I haven’t had any problems with rubbing or blisters. I don’t know if I have seen any real toning results. I have been wearing my shoes at least five days a week for the past four weeks now, and I haven’t seen or felt any real differences in my lower body. But they are good shoes, they feel good and there is a wide variety of colors and style to choose from. Reebok has made toning shoes for both walking and running, so you can choose your shoe by which lifestyle you lead, and I think that is nice. The balance pods really threw me off balance the first day I wore them, but after that I barely noticed that my shoes felt different from regular tennis shoes. But I haven’t had any problems yet with the pods wearing down or popping, which some reviews had said. Overall, I am little disappointed that I haven’t seen any results, but I will continue wearing the shoes in hopes that maybe I just need some more time.
There has been a lawsuit filed against Reebok for “deceptive adverting” of their EasyTone and RunTone Shoes. Please access the following link to read the full article from the Federal Trade Commission. http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2011/09/reebok.shtm
