Reebok Easy Tone Shoes Product Review
Reebok has come up with an easy way to maximize your walking exercise experience with a new design of tennis shoe.
When I was putting the final touches on my Christmas wish list, I had to stop and think about what I needed to get myself in shape. There on the T.V. was a beautiful model with the best toned thighs, her thighs and calves and even her bum were perfectly proportioned and firm. The ad didn't show her face, but I imagined that could be me. The ad was very effective and it worked on me. She looked so good because of her tennis shoes. Who knew?
Reebok has designed an exercise shoe. I had to get them even if I had to buy them for myself. And, viola, with my Christmas gift money I bought myself a pair at Dillard's for only $100. Now I too can have those sexy legs and rear-end. I'm not sure how long it will take but I'm giving it my best shot. As for exercise I will keep up my 3 day a week routine with my work- out buddy, in my home gym wearing my new Easy Tone shoes of course.
Reebok Easy Tone
Reebok Easy Tone shoes (sneakers, tennis shoes, whatever they're called) are designed with balance pods that act like stability balls under your feet. I feel like I'm walking on a trampoline. Easy Tone helps tone key muscles, how? Balance pods are built-in under the heel and forefoot of the shoes. The balance pods are designed to create natural instability with every step which forces your muscles to adapt and encourages toning. I'm impressed, even the overview that came in the box is written in 10 different languages.
Increases Muscle activation up to 28% in the gluteus maximus (bum), 11% in the hamstrings and 11% inthe calves based on tests comparing Easy Tone Go Outside to typical foam based walking shoes. Walking around is something I do a lot of and special toning my legs at the same time sounds good to me.

When asked how long do you need to walk to benefit from the Easy Tone shoes?
The answer is that Easy Tone shoes work to improve muscle activation as an additional percentage over what you would normally achieve from traditional foam-based shoes. So the more steps you take, the more benefits you receive. This answer is a little vague, but let's face it something is better than nothing.
When would you wear Easy Tone shoes?
Easy Tone shoes are designed with style in mind, so they can be worn for all your daily activities-from work to school to shopping to walking-everything you would normally do in a day. They help tone key leg muscles and the added benefit is that they look great! I have been wearing them wherever I go these last few days and I forget they are working my muscles so effectively because they are so comfortable.
Will the pods wear out or puncture?
No, the balance pods have been extensively tested and are very durable.
When I reluctantly accepted the task to go for a walk with my niece, her 4 month old dog and my sister's dog in the chill of a cold night, I went eagerly with the notion that I needed to test out my new Easy Tone shoes. I felt empowered and daring as I walked briskly and gingerly knowing that I was exercising in more ways than one. We walked for a long time and the cold didn't even bother me. I think these new shoes are going to inspire me to get out more. I like the design and the colors. They are mostly white with a splash of lime green. They're cute and a perfect fit.
