Reebok’s Toning Sneakers Don’t Actually Tone Your Body
Remember how those Reebok EasyTone sneakers were suppose to help you lose weight by just walking in them? Well it turns out that might not be the case.
According to The Wall Street Journal , the Federal Trade Commission recently ruled that EasyTone and RunTone brand sneakers had none of the butt-toning abilities advertised and that anyone who bought the faulty sneaks could get a refund. Reebook has agreed to pay a $25 million settlement, although they stand by the tush-boosting claims they’ve made about their shoes.
“In order to avoid a protracted legal battle, Reebok has chosen to settle with the FTC,” the company said in a statement. “Settling does not mean we agreed with the FTC’s allegation; we do not,” Reebok said. “We fully stand behind our EasyTone technology, the first shoe in the toning category inspired by balance-ball training.”
