Reebok is a well-known name in retail circles. It has an impressive line of running shoes and other types of footwear. Reebok also makes apparel for running, hockey, lacrosse and other sports. The Reebok EasyTone is the venture by this company in a somewhat different direction – the specialty show market for women.
What Reebok EasyTones Are
Reebok EasyTone is a relatively new product of Reebok. It is a trainer shoe. Reebok dates back to 1958, but it has its ancestry in the United Kingdom in the 1890s. Reebok has continually moved forwards from exercise and fitness shoes and apparel into sports clothing and footwear. With the introduction of Reebok EasyTone, Reeboks plans to break into the specialty nook of footwear. Their focus with this product is shaping up women through their footwear.
What Reebok EasyTones Do
The slogan for these shoes is “Take the Gym with you.” EasyTone plans to help tone leg muscles, calves and hamstrings of women. The company claims, it can activate 28% more gluteus maximus muscles as well as 11% each of the calf and hamstring muscles. In other words, Reebok wishes to help women improve their legs and butt.
At the same time, the shoes are designed to wear anywhere you would wear your normal walking or running shoes. They are stylish. You wear them to do whatever is part of your normal activities. Wear them on a shopping trip or to walk your children to school. Do not, however, wear them to the gym. This is not their purpose. These shoes are to help you shape up while you carry out your day-to-day living.
How Reebok EasyTones Do It
The ability of Reebok EasyTone to strengthen your calves, hamstrings and maximus gluteus, stems from technological alterations in the basic foot pad. The technology emerges from the work of a former NASA engineer, Bill McInnis. He created what is called a balance pod system, placing it in the sole of each shoe. Reebok EasyTones incorporate these “stability balls.” One sits under the heel of the shoe and another under the front of the foot. This produces instability. The upshot of this is it forces the foot muscles and connected muscles, tissues and tendon to work harder. The result is a toned and stronger foot and leg muscles.
Reebok EasyTones also have other factors creating comfortable shoes. The lining is antibacterial. The polyurethane sock liner is also removable. Many of the models of EasyTone feature open weave mesh lining. This allows them to breathe out the moisture.
Who Uses Reebok EasyTone?
Reebok contributes to such female causes as the Avon Walk For Breast Cancer. Several celebrities wear EasyTone by Reebok. Kendra Wilkinson (Kendra), Vanessa Minnillo, a TV host, Stacy Keibler (Dancing with the Stars), Regina Smith (Ray, 24), Karina Smirnoff (Dancing with Stars), Andrina Partridge (The Hills) and Taryn Manning (The Job) are all fans. So, too, is the entire Kardashia family. Kim, Kloe and Kourtney as well their mom Kris Jenner all sport EasyTones.
Reebok EasyTone footwear is for women only. It comes in several different styles. These different variations on a theme are meant to ensure all types of activity are covered. The shoes are designed to fit the varied shapes of women’s feet. The color range is limited but still somewhat diverse. There are no patterns but color combinations are available. Generally, the shoes are white, turquoise, navy, silver, sand and black as well as combinations of these color choices.
1. Go Outside
These sneakers are meant for outdoor usage. They are a training shoe. Reebok’s EasyTone Outside feature the “stability ball” technology common among all types of EasyTone Reeboks. EasyTone Go Outside features synthetic leather. There is also a mesh upper fit. It helps the shoe breathe out any built-up moisture.
2. Rush SF
Rush SF features the expected balance pads or “stability balls,” built into the heels and front of the shoe. There is an open weave upper fit as well as an antibacterial lining of the shoe. The polyurethane sock liner of Rush SF is removable.
Inspire are not meant for gym use. These are walking shoes. These shoes are intended to work your legs while you walk, to achieve that toned leg and tight buttocks. They are ventilated to allow moisture to escape. Yet, the shoes, sporting this technology do not stand out as being different from Reeboks and other types of footwear. They are sleek and streamlined. They come in a selection of colors including green, black and white.
4. EasyTone Flip Flops
The EasyTone Flip Flops feature the same technology as the EasyTone Shoes. They have the “stability balls” positioned so you achieve the most amount of exercise during your time at the beach.
