EasyTone Sneakers

Reebok has been inundating the television, print ads and the Internet with their newest product, EasyTone walking shoes. Even Oprah has jumped on the bandwagon. Reebok has always brought great products to their customers and now they have made getting fit a little easier for the busy modern lifestyle. The target demographic are women who are on their feet for the better part of the day. The word is that wearing these shoes is like walking in sand. Living on the East Coast of Florida, I know what kind of workout that can be. Coupled with the fact that I have been a Reebok customer for over 20 years, I would buy these shoes without a doubt.

Shake It Up!!

New Shoes

If you are going to buy new shoes this year, I recommend Reebok's EasyTone shoes. They have a patented destabilizing element in the soles of the shoes that requires the wearer to walk in a certain way, in order to stay balanced. The shoes work your gluteous maximus, hamstring, and calf muscles to tone your lower body as you walk around doing ordinary tasks. The more you are on your feet, the better they work. You can feel a difference after just two weeks. The company claims that the shoes can improve muscle tone up to 28%. Customers claim that it is like walking on soft pillows. What more can you ask from a shoe?

What Style Do you Want?

The shoes come in a variety of styles and colors and you can even customize your own for an additional charge. They have the standard black, white, and the ever popular two-toned shoe. They also have a shoe with extra support designed for the jogger in the family. The "Reeinspire" walking shoe comes in white, silver, purple, and citron, while the stylish Easy Tone training shoe comes in champagne or white. Whatever your preferences are, Reebok has a shoe for you. So, dust off those old New Years resolutions and get in better shape for the New Year with Reebok's EasyTone walking shoes. Below you will find a variety of styles and types of shoes, including flip flops and insoles for all your walking needs.

Injuries

Disclaimer

Since the onset of the various shoe manufacturers hawking the new "workout" shoes, there have been a few lawsuits and complaints that people are experiencing injuries associated with the shoes. I do not now, nor have I ever been employed for any of these shoe companies and I do not speak for them. I can only speak for my own experience. If anyone is contemplating trying these types of shoes, they should check with their doctor first to avoid any problems. At any rate, please do your own research before you make your decision.

Wish I could say i agree, but these shoes rubbed my heels raw. Now none of my shoes are comfortable, least of all these.

I am sorry that happened to you, I have the same problem with Nikes.

Walking is one of the most effective and least destructive forms of exercise. It can allow you to operate in the ideal pulse rate zone to burn off fat rather than carbohydrate.

Add in the right type of shoes and you get twice the bang for your buck

At first they seemed good, but then shortly I felt an ache in my achilles. Wore them less often. I'm a teacher and I wear sneakers all day, every day and am constantly walking up and down stairs. Wore them often enough though. Then I found a large lump on my right achilles tendon and a smaller one on my left. Went to a foot specialist who said that she's seen patients mostly w/knee injuries from these sneakers. Another doctor said the same thing. I've been through physical therapy for almost a year. They've seen knee injuries from these sneakers.. Much of the cramping has disappeared, but the lump on the right is still there and slightly less on the left. There is still aching at times. Reebock took my EasyTones and gave me others as a replacement, but I've shelled out hundreds of dollars in physical therapy!

Would like to hear from others...hallimos@verizon.net. Thinking of a class action lawsuit.

I don't know why you would have an ache in your waist, except that you are using muscles that you haven't used much before. Give it time and see if it goes away, if not, see a doctor.
