What Do You Think About...Reebok EasyTone Shoes?

By January 22, 2009

Follow me on:

I get lots of emails about new fitness products and gear, but I don't always have time to review them all. One recent email caught my eye touting the Reebok EasyTone sneakers. These shoes, according to the blurbs, "incorporate stability balls under the heels and forefoot to create a natural instability to force muscles to adapt and encourage toning." The email also stated that the shoes make you feel like you're walking on a soft, sandy beach, providing "28% more gluteus maximus muscle activation, and 11% more calf and hamstring activation."

After some searching, I haven't been able to find any studies backing up their claims and, frankly, a shoe (no matter how fabulous it is) isn't going to change your body. That doesn't mean the shoe isn't good for other reasons but, if you're looking for major weight loss or toning, you're better off saving your money and hitting the gym for some cardio and strength workouts.

You can learn more in my review of Reebok EasyTone Shoes and please post your own detailed review here, if you've tried these shoes.

I have never been a fan of Reebok, but I would try these, but not for $119.

(2) MBT Girl says:

I think these sounds like the Swiss-made MBT’s. I own a pair of MBT’s and while pricey (about $250) they are amazing and work many muscles I never knew I had! I found mine on Sierra Trading for a lot cheaper.

(3) Brad says:

Hmmmmm…an interesting idea – needs proving. However, fancy & expensive shoes are unlikely to replace great leg and butt toners like step-ups, lunges, squats, RDLs and quality time on the StairMaster (etc). Personally, I’d rather stick with comfortable quality footwear (have had good experience with New Balance cross trainers) and do the exercises I know produce results.

(4) jpm says:

At least they cost less than MBTs.

(5) tmj says:

Sounds similar to the FitFlop sandals, which I love. I’ve always like Reeboks so I might give them a try.

January 23, 2009 at 1:00 pm
(6) Mandy says:

I agree these sound like the fitflops which I own. They definatly do work your legs so if they are similar only in a sneaker version I would imagine they would help tone your legs etc. Though the fitflops were only $50 much easier on the wallet.

(7) Theresa says:

These shoes sound like a badly sprained ankle or worse in the making. They would be great if not for the side to side motion. I have weak ankles so I won’t be rushing out to buy a oair anytime soon.

February 17, 2009 at 11:29 am
(8) pluk says:

These sounded great so I tried them out….I never have a lot of time to work out, so anything extra helps. They don’t look dorky either. I love them!

February 17, 2009 at 5:47 pm
(9) ShoeManiac says:

I have a pair of these in silver – I got them a few months ago because my sister works at Reebok. I can definitely feel them working and I don’t feel too unstable at all. It’s just enough to make your muscles work extra hard. I was disappointed by the colors that they choose though – they could have been cute but the white and black are the ugliest things I have ever seen.

March 3, 2009 at 11:07 am
(10) Janie says:

There are a lot of these healthy shoes with built-in workouts out there… Earth Footwear, MBT, and FitFlop just to name a few.

March 16, 2009 at 5:54 pm
(11) Laura says:

I have seen the MBT but they are SO expensive. If Reebok has done the same things for half the price – I am seriously interested. The colors could certainly be better – hard to beleive they passed focus groups. I don’t want to replace my gym time, but enhancing the non gym time seems great.

March 20, 2009 at 1:04 pm
(12) Lisa says:

Logged on to check out feedback for the Reebok EasyTone. Since my MBTs wore out (I suffered a back injury in 2004, as well as weak ankles and knees, and those MBTs are WORTH EVERY PENNY I paid – just can’t afford them now)I was looking for alternatives. Note: To the person who complained of weak ankles, I too had the same problem and the MBT technology (off balance) really does work and strengthen those muscles. Just wish I could afford a new pair. While wearing, did not need tylenol or flexiril for pain/spasms. May give the reeboks a try and find out the return policy. One other note no the MBTs. Read something that the American branch of MBTs company produces substandard products. So from what I read, if you’re opting for the MBT only buy the regular sneakers (not the new lines that include dress shoes, etc.) Check out the MBT website for more info.

(13) Joanne says:

I tried them on and they are extremely comfortable, wanted shoes for work (nursing) but don’t want to spend $110

April 21, 2009 at 6:26 pm
(14) christine reinsch says:

I bought these shoes about a month and a half ago. I definitely notice a big difference in my calf and butt. I walk my dog for about an hour every day and these make it so much easier, as well as toning my leg muscles more. At 100 bucks these are not only a better deal than MBTs but lighter and more comfortable! I highly recommend.

April 27, 2009 at 10:43 am
(15) HPBoston says:

I am thinking about buying either the Reebok, MBT, or any of the others. However, I am still recovering from some older IT band injuries. Should I still get these shoes as long as I am strecthing and exercising properly? Can I jog in the Reebok Easytone’s or any of the others? Thanks

April 30, 2009 at 1:04 am
(16) Carla says:

$110 is well worth the investment in these shoes, especially if you are looking for a comfortable shoe that provides great toning at the same time! Would be ideal for anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet

May 3, 2009 at 6:01 pm
(17) April Williams says:

I got a pair of these for $100 a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely love them. I don’t feel that unstable in them. They are very comfortable. I wear them everywhere. I can definitly see the difference in my legs. My friends have even noticed… 2 went out and got these! I highly recommend them!

May 9, 2009 at 3:20 pm
(18) Maria says:

I just got a pair last night…I found a friend who’s husband works at Lady Footlocker and gave me his discount! I paid a little more than $80 for these. So far, they are so comfy, but I am taking it slow. The first time I wore fit flops all day at work, I strained my back, but it’s been fine ever since. I hope the easy tone’s work, but they are more comfortable than anything so far!!!

May 11, 2009 at 1:46 pm
(19) Heather says:

Just bought these and I love them. They are the most comfortable sneaker Ever….TBD whether or not I see the toning benefits- but they are like walking on a cushion!!!

May 14, 2009 at 1:20 am
(20) Pati says:

Am excited to try on a pair of the Reeboks, as cannot afford the MBT’s and have a severe problem with a very old scar that runs across the whole length of my right foot that is very tender after 40 some years! Maybe this time I can find comfort and work the muscles in areas of the calf , thigh and butt area I need……..
without having to sacrifice to pain in the bottom of my right foot! They look good enough to wear at work, I have given up on suffering for vanity! Wish me luck!

May 14, 2009 at 7:18 pm
(21) Lynn says:

I love these shoes-I am a walker, and I have had some serious problems with my feet. These shoes are terrific, and I think worth every penny!

May 14, 2009 at 11:23 pm
(22) Renee S. says:

I cannot sing the praises of the Easytone shoes enough! I am very heavy, and have issues with sore aching feet and legs, and I break down goes easily, and when my feet I walk less which defeats my purpose of weight loss. I have worked more in the past two weeks simply because I feel secure in these shoes, I dont list when I walk like a lot of heavy people do and I do not hurt. I just dont hurt. To an overweight person, lack of mobility is what can take us from obese to superobese. I feel in charge for the first time in a long time, and proud I am walking my way to leaness. I will never buy any other brand of walking shoe again. Best 100 bucks I ever spent.

May 15, 2009 at 6:22 pm
(23) Annie B says:

I have a pair of MBT’s. Not the most attractive shoe — very orthopedic looking. Anyway, I ended up badly spraining my ankle while wearing them. The sole is so thick that it is easy to twist your ankle, especially if walking on uneven surfaces. The Reebok’s look more like a regular sport shoe and not so clunky. Definitely nicer looking than the MBT’s and 1/2 the price. I might give them a try.

May 19, 2009 at 9:22 pm
(24) Jennifer says:

I’m a MBT fan, just bought their new Tataga Denim last week. When I found Easytone, I tried to order on-line but seems out of stock everywhere! Anyone can tell me where to get it?

May 20, 2009 at 2:44 pm
(25) Diane says:

I just got the Easy tone shoes they seem good I’ve been on the treadmill for 3 days 40 mins each & don’t feel any soreness or difference, so not sure that they are doing anything different, but they feel good to walk in. I also have a pair of MBT’s but can’t wear them if I tie them tight my feet hurt & get numb if I loosen them I get blisters, so sorry I spent the money on them.

May 21, 2009 at 3:15 pm
(26) Mattie says:

I would love to try a pair of these shoes. I am a 6 1/2, are they true to size? My feet tend to get numb when I walk if the shoe is too tight so sometimes I buy a size 7 and then they stretch too much.

May 25, 2009 at 7:27 pm
(27) Becca says:

I have these shoes and I love them.

May 29, 2009 at 2:04 am
(28) Michelle says:

I bought these a month ago and I absolutely LOVE! them. It feels as if you are walking on a cloud. My calves are no longer jiggly, they are toned nicely and since i’m so happy to have these, i put them on and walk a mile or two every morning. I wore them to work once, but felt very worn out by the end of the day, so i wont do that again. I wear them to the grocery store and to do errands, and it’s paying off, my legs are getting longer and leaner. thanks Reebok. PS I like mine they are silver and blue.

June 1, 2009 at 5:24 pm
(29) Patty says:

I just bought these in blue and white at Dick’s Sporting Goods. WOW, these are unbelievably comfortable! I too suffered from soreness after my walks and ventured out to find a shoe that would work. I tried on several name brand styles and the EasyTone Inspire was by far, hands down the one for me! They look great, feel great, and worth every penny! Way to go Reebok!

June 1, 2009 at 11:13 pm
(30) Jane says:

To those who own the shoes: Do you think they slim down your calves? I am interested in the shoes, but I am worried they will bulk-up my calves.

June 2, 2009 at 11:24 am
(31) Donna says:

I like them, I bought them and have wore them twice now, my legs do feel like I am getting more of a workout when I walk.

June 5, 2009 at 10:03 pm
(32) dana says:

I just got a tack stuck in the bottom of my shoe, the bottom poppedout, 3 days after I bought them. I called Reebok and they

said the warranty does not cover stepping on a tack and I would have to buy another pair. I just hear a loud air gushing out sound and uneven shoes. A wasted $110.

June 6, 2009 at 12:52 am
(33) sportyguy says:

After running in Nike for years, 6 months ago I purchased a pair of Reebok Premier Running shoes. My feet felt better than ever and increased mileage didn’t seem to bother my knees. After hearing about Easytone I saw these great looking shoes at Lady FootLocker and purchased them last week. Wow! Comfy and a unique technology.

June 8, 2009 at 1:04 pm
(34) Lois says:

I was a skeptic, but wanted to try them. I already go to the gym a couple of times a week, walk the dog, use the stairmaster, etc. I got them about 3 weeks ago, and I can feel the difference. Surprisingly, my husband actually told me this weekend when he saw me ni exercise clothes that I look different. I didn’t find them a big adjustment in terms of feeling unstable- I did have a little hip pain in one side one night, but it resolved, and also had problems with hitting my second toe on both feet, causing a blister. The uppers are not leather (pricey for vinyl, but I guess you’re paying for the technology), but I used moleskin, and that plus the breaking in they have dose has taken care of it. I got them on-line at Dick’s on Mother’s Day- there was a 20% off promotion, plus I have jackpot rewards. I’m very pleased that I got them, and won’t walk the dog or back and forth from the parking lot to work without them.

June 10, 2009 at 6:12 pm
(35) Jaylee says:

Thanks for all the comments but I am still wondering can you wear them to the gym? When strength training, walking on the stair master and the elliptical? I can’t seem to find out if it is safe….

June 11, 2009 at 6:19 pm
(36) Joanna says:

I recently bought it and I wear them when I’m on the treadmill and elliptical. They work just fine. I have noticed my calves getting more defined. I like them so far, they are also very comfortable. It’s worth the money just for the comfort.

June 17, 2009 at 10:39 pm
(37) dana says:

The Easytones are cheap balloon shoes.

June 18, 2009 at 11:24 pm
(38) Debbie85901 says:

I love them! Just got them today, and went on my walk. They are very cushy, but I can really tell the difference in my leg workout. I have the white/green and they are attractive. The price is not bad for the quality, and reebok sent them free shipping, just have to pay sales tax (six something for me)

June 18, 2009 at 11:29 pm
(39) Debbie85901 says:

Just looking at some of the previous comments, I also wore them with a small free weight workout I do twice a week, 2 reps with light hand weights running in place 30 secs in between, and they are just fine.

June 18, 2009 at 11:34 pm
(40) debbie85901 says:

Sorry to comment again, but noticing a post about size, I have worn Reebok for years and I always use a 1/2 size larger than my normal shoe size. They always fit perfect, as with this order.

June 26, 2009 at 12:05 am
(41) Karissa says:

I just bought a pair of these and I’m loving them so far. I bought the green/white ones from Dick’s…if you have an Entertainment Book, there’s a $20 off coupon. As for size, I found that I wear my regular (9.5)in this shoe. I also wear the FitFlops and the Kmart version: TheraSandals…they do the same thing for $9.99 on sale. I have noticed a difference in my butt & legs with the FitFlops, so I’m hoping the Easytone will help me out at work and when I can’t wear the sandals

July 1, 2009 at 11:38 am
(42) Kris says:

I was talking with someone from Reebok the other day. They said you can wear them in the gym while doing light weights, squats, and while walking on the elliptical. However, they don’t recommend running on them for more then a minute and are not recommended for lateral movements such as tennis and basketball. Otherwise, its a great shoe. I’m still saving up to get a pair.

July 2, 2009 at 9:36 pm
(43) Cali says:

If they work as well as MTB’s, they’ve got my vote. What they do for shaping your calves, ankles, upper thighs and butt is quite amazing.

July 4, 2009 at 10:27 pm
(44) Cris says:

I have had my easytones for a little over a month now & though they are soft & cushy to walk in I do not feel any soreness or see any difference in tone as far as legs/butt go. Also, they make my feet sweat more than my other tennis shoes (perhaps the vinyl?) I do feel a bit unstable when I walk & maybe it will strengthen my ankles more but I will stick to doing gym workouts as these shoes will not be the answer to getting more tone.

July 14, 2009 at 10:30 pm
(45) GreenDaypunkrockergirl says:

i like the shoes but i can’t afford them BTW i will not pay $110 for those shoes no matter how awsome they are.the price is waaaay to over-rated

July 15, 2009 at 11:15 am
(46) BH says:

How do they hold up biking or spinning? Or would they probably not be fit for it? Sort of like you supposedly shouldn’t run for too long in them or do any heavy weight training in them?

July 17, 2009 at 12:08 am
(47) Liz says:

I’ve had mine for about 3 weeks and can’t be happier. I’m a runner so I’d live in running shoes if I could, but these are a great alternative. Soooo cozy and I can feel some benefit too (calves, glutes etc). I don’t believe for one minutes that they’d make an overweight person skinny OR replace regular exercise, but they are comfortable, look better than MBTs and make your muscles work a bit harder while you’re walking around. Do not try to run in them though, they are not designed for it!!!

July 20, 2009 at 8:28 am
(48) Ana says:

Just got a pair of sandals yesterday! Are they ever confortable!!! Just like walking on a cloud, so soft and bouncy. I do feel that you have to tighten your self for balance, thats probably why they do work! I am looking foreward to buying a shoe nxt paycheck ;)
Don’t know for the states but in Canada a few select Reebok outlets carry them and they are part of th BOGO deal, so that a good way to get a discount on the new stuff!

July 21, 2009 at 8:41 am
(49) Mommyof3 says:

Has anyone tried Skechers shape ups? I bought a pair a Modell’s last week, they arent the cutest shoes I have ever owned but I love them so far! Very comfortable and it feels like its working!

August 3, 2009 at 10:13 pm
(50) rosebud says:

I noticed then at a shoe store but was more interested in the ‘cushions’ because I have back problems. I absolutely love them and am looking for another pair.

August 4, 2009 at 9:39 pm
(51) Wendy Carrasquillo says:

Love these shoes. Very comfortable and didn’t have to break them in. I will buy another pair but it seems that I have to order them online to get different styles.

August 6, 2009 at 11:49 am
(52) Alesa says:

I both Reeboc’s Easytone about a month ago. General walking feels great. However, when I walk the dog at a more brisk pace, they tend to cause my heel to ‘slide’ to the side of the shoe when I am walking on hills. I feel like I am walking on the side of the shoe, so I have to stop to adjust them to sit straight on my foot. Any suggestions?

August 9, 2009 at 11:18 am
(53) audsd says:

I have MBT shoes that I loved wearing except for a few issues (mostly being too snug and wearing out now). Once thing I noticed is any pain in my knees was resolved when I was wearing them. I need to buy a new pair of tennies and am going to buy the easytone. The person who commented on their ankles being weak, I can honestly say that these stability shoes would probably be a lifesaver for you.

August 11, 2009 at 10:52 am
(54) Brooke says:

I have a pair and I love them. They are comfortable, and you can really feel them working your leg muscles. They don’t look bad either (compared to some of the other shoes out there that promise to do the same job), and at $99.00 at Dick’s Sporting Goods, they are a good buy.

August 13, 2009 at 12:47 pm
(55) Maria says:

I just got these yesterday and at the store they felt cushy and comfortable. However when I wore them out my feet got numb and I had to take them off from the pain. They were cutting off my circulation and I was even wearing thin socks and didnt have them on that tight. I’m returning them. I wore my regular size.

August 14, 2009 at 3:59 pm
(56) Virg says:

I bought these at Famous Footwear in KS for $69 plus they had a 20% coupon deal. Love them! They don’t feel like the MBT to me. I couldn’t afford MBT’s either. Skecher now has a MBT like shoe — approx. $110 at Famous Footwear. My Reebok EasyTones are white and pink for breast cancer awareness.

August 15, 2009 at 2:01 pm
(57) karyn says:

I am interested in the EasyTone shoe. I have had knee reconstruction and would love to firm up the backs of my legs. Can anyone comment on this for me?

August 17, 2009 at 11:34 pm
(58) CH1014 says:

Bought them tonight, lasted one min. on treadmill. Would be good for outside, but they DO NOT work on a treadmill…almost broke my neck! They wouldn’t “grip” on the treadmill so it felt like I was walking on ice.

August 18, 2009 at 11:18 pm
(59) left out in canada says:

Ok, so I saw the add for the Easytone shoes and sandals, and want them sooo bad! I’m getting married in November and of course want to look my best :) My problem is I can not seem to find any place to get them in Manitoba, and am having no luck finding somewhere to buy them from online in Canada. I am willing to pay the shipping, but ordering from the US seems as though it is going to cost an additional $50…can someone help me out here??? I will call and order from any store, if I just knew what store to contact?!?!?!?!?!?

August 22, 2009 at 1:06 pm
(60) JOHN says:

my wife is a senior citizen and has had foot issues since birth plus ankle and food surgery, etc. she bought a pair of easytones at Dillards in AZ. from what she says she really likes them except for the price ($100 plus tax). i would recommend going to any store that stocks them and try them on to find your correct size.

August 22, 2009 at 3:41 pm
(61) amanda says:

I tried on a pair in Lady Foot Locker yesterday, they have a new color combo out that’s kinda fun. They were incredibly comfortable, and putting my old sneakers on was disappointing. I’m just having trouble justifying $100 for new sneakers, when there were others there seriously on sale. I know these different from regular sneakers, and I think the point in to boost your workouts if you’re already active, and I could feel my muscles engaged more. If I could find them for less somewhere I would definitely get a pair, or wait till they maybe go on sale?

August 25, 2009 at 9:29 am
(62) A Canadian Friend says:

They are going to be in SportChek and Footlocker stores. Maybe give Reebok customer service a call and see if they can help you. I think they will also be in Reebok outlet stores. I think the launch of the shoes has been a bit delayed.

August 27, 2009 at 3:19 am
(63) sarsar says:

I’ve been interested in these shoes for the last couple of months.. I just can’t afford them. I work in a fast paced restaurant where I’m constantly moving and I think these shoes would help tone my legs even more.

August 29, 2009 at 7:27 am
(64) Yvette says:

I’m from the UK and I bought the Reebok Easy Tone Trainers a couple of weeks ago, they are the best trainers I ever bought. I am a gym addict so I’m looking to buy another pair to match my gym wear, you can get custom made ones here in the UK, I can’t wait to pick my own colours, they are more expensive to buy custom made but worth it in my opinion.

August 31, 2009 at 10:47 am
(65) QueenIam says:

hello those who were complaining or concerned about the colors or the look of the shoe. I have them and I customized them on reebok.com you pick your textures and colors for YOUR shoe.

August 31, 2009 at 1:12 pm
(66) Isabel says:

There is no quick fix to good old fashion exercise. However, these shoes appear to be a lower cost version of the Swiss MBT technology. If they are remotely as effective as my MBT shoes, I’m sold. Even at the $100 price tag. If you suffer any type of foot pain, lower back pain, try the MBT technology. I am very happy to see other brands, (Reebox & Skechers) jump on board and offer a more affordable version of this technology.

August 31, 2009 at 5:45 pm
(67) T says:

My daughter bought a pair of these for me because I’d heard about them and wanted a pair! When I initially tried them on, they felt wonderful!! Unfortunately after a quick 2-mile jaunt around my usual walking path, I had to hobble to my car. The balls of my feet were screaming!!! I’m used to walking, I go 5-7 miles a day without a problem, so I was excited to think that the Reeboks might add a little oompf to my workout. Unfortunately I’m going to have to return them. I may try the Skechers shapeups or the MBT. Anyone else have this problem?

September 1, 2009 at 11:41 am
(68) diann says:

Terribly designed shoes. These should only be worn if you stand in one place all day. After a few 3-5 mile walks, the bottom of my foot & toe really started to hurt. I took the shoe and went to see my Dr. He told me these shoes do not bent at the proper place on your foot. It appears this caused my big toe to hyperextend and crack my sesamoid bone on the bottom of my foot. I’ve been in a foot brace for 5 weeks so far.

September 2, 2009 at 10:36 pm
(69) Cynthia says:

I found my Easy Tone Go Outside at Footsmart.com -I have worn them for walking twice for 2 miles, and I really feel the difference in my legs and backside. My ankles do not bother me afterwards. I have never spent this much on a sneaker before, but I have to say that these are great!

September 15, 2009 at 1:55 pm
(70) Barbara says:

I bought these sneakers about a month ago. They were fine at first on shorter walks with my dog, they do not stand up to running or tennis, I felt like I was crippled after using them for these activities with terrible pain from the bottom of my heel and ankles, I have not seen a marked difference in leg toning, but they are attractive to look at on the plus side!!

September 15, 2009 at 3:59 pm
(71) Angela says:

I bought a pair two days ago and LOVE THEM. They are worth every penny. I have worn them both days to walk my dogs and my calves are definately sore which means they were working harder than with a regular shoe. The shoes are very comfortable with the exception of a little soreness in my feet the first walk. This discomfort went away with the second walk and I think it was just my feet getting used to the challenge the shoe presents for the muscles!

September 23, 2009 at 1:01 pm
(72) Lisa says:

DO NOT BUY! TOTAL RIP OFF! I bought the Reebok Easy Tone shoes 7/16/09. They completely deflated by 9/16/09 (that’s when I noticed it). I never ran or played sports in them. I walked approx one and a half hours a day in them. Reebok will not help and the place where I bought them from only takes exchanges if the shoes are not worn. I absolutely loved these shoes. They were the most comfortable shoes I had ever had, but only lasting 2 months does not make them economical. I just went out and bought a pair of the Skechers Shape Ups. They are very comfortable and they don’t have anything in them to deflate!!! Otherwise, walking in the Skechers feels much like the Reebok Easy Tones.

September 23, 2009 at 8:45 pm
(73) Kay says:

These shoes are pretty comfortable (they fit better than most reeboks). Though I’m not sure if they’re working or not, they just came in and i’ve only worn them for a day, i can feel it in my feet and so far that’s about it. I’ll give them a week, but so far the effects are minimal.
Note to Canadians, you must order these online, do not waste your time going from store to store searching. I did this in both edmonton and toronto, and though the website says there are stores that carry them in canada, this is a lie.

(74) screamer says:

I bought these while on vacation over the summer and absolutely love them. I always hated wearing sneakers bc they would hurt more than my heels even when I would spend well over $200 per pair. As soon as I slipped these on, I knew I would have a hard time parting. I hate wearing closed shoes during the summer and I found myself only wanting to wear these.

They surely don’t replace a work-out but they help with your work-out. When I wear these while doing squats and lunges, I find myself using different muscles because of the stability “ball” under the soles. And when not working out, they are great for just walking. I actually miss the ball when I wear other flat shoes.

My only problem now is finding a similar alternative to wear in the house. Does anyone know of a slipper with the same technology?

(75) Bev says:

I bought these shoes about 2 months ago and have tried to wear them a few times, I didn’t notice any improvement just that my toes went numb after a half hour of walking in them and they are extremely hard to get used to. You tend to walk on the outside of your foot which is hard on my back. When I wore them doing strength training they helped me use different muscles, Not impressed with them and I don’t beleive they are worth the money.

September 29, 2009 at 5:30 pm
(76) Jeani Bjorkman says:

I tried on these shoes and bought a pair because they are so comfortable. However I have returned them because my heel pulls up in the shoe so much. It’s like the back of my foot is coming out of the shoe. I tried a smaller size and the same thing happened. My sister had the same problem.
Has anyone else noticed this ?

I got a pair of these about 2 or so months ago and i absolutely LOVE them! I wear them most days, on a brisk walk on my lunch break and on my daily mile long commute to work and i think they’ve made a huge difference! I’m so much more toned and defined in my legs and butt and the bonus is they look great! Well worth every penny :-)

I bought these last weekend (I’m in Canada, they do sell them at Sports Expert) and I like them alot they are very comfortable. And I think it is working, my legs hurt more than usual! And to Jeani Bjorkman: I did notice that one of my heels seems to want to come out, but only on 1 side cause my foot is smaller than the other.

I had a similar pair – Earth shoes – wore them to the gym – may have been the first mistake. They were comfy, but I suffer tendonitis, and the shoes made this problem worse. It has been a year now – not wearing the shoes, and I am still battling foot pain.

I am needing another pair for vacation. This is the most amazing tennis shoe I have ever worn. I really dont like tennis shoes. But they work my entire body. I always work out and I have had these for a few months and they enhance my workout. Worth every penny. Just wish they were more attractive.

(84) biomech skeptic says:

These shoes don’t sit well with me from a biomechanical perspective…
Granted, they DO admit there is some structure in the shoe forcing you to do more work hinting at some sort of mechanism; but they don’t ever explain it.
This is however, the most troubling part; a shoe that forces you to expend more energy with every step will limit your overall endurance capabilities.
If you’re a distance runner, this is catastrophic.
If you have pathological ankles, it’s just as bad.
And if you’re just looking to burn calories and firm up, the extra expended energy per step may decrease the total distance you can run thus not really causing you to burn more.
While this is obviously just theoretical speculation,

November 3, 2009 at 1:48 am
(85) biomech skeptic says:

…while this is all just theoretical speculation, there must be laboratory proof of muscle activation patterns and recorded energy costs to prove the shoe does in fact do what they claim.
Finally, is a shoe that forces you to do more work per step actually healthy from a joint, endurance, or health perspective?

(86) Vivi says:

Would anyone recommend these for people with wider feet? My biggest issue with most tennis shoes is that they are mostly for narrower feet. NB, Nike and ASICS tend to cause awful cramps where my feet are wider than the narrowest part of the sole. I’ve found most Adidas shoes come in wider fits, but I haven’t had a pair of Reeboks since I was a kid… Hm. I have wide and flat-ish feet. Would you recommend these shoes for me?

I have the FitFlops and i love them, but winter is approaching and I’d like to keep my toes for another year. :)

November 5, 2009 at 12:31 am
(87) biomech skeptic says:

NEVER use these for sports…
it’s one of their major drawbacks; the instability pockets they put in the sole make them dangerous during lateral movement.
if you’ve got flat feet, you’re ankle structure is probably naturally loose (flat feet come from a depressed longitudinal arch on the inner part of the foot) and this looseness is already a lot to handle without the added instability.
the best path is to simply find a comfortable shoe that lets you move well wh

I have gained some weight after I turned 40 and have Plantar Fasciitis, these shoes are a daily life saver. I can walk with my 10 year old in the mall and around town with no pain. I feel 20 years old again. I wish Reebok would make these is mens for my son. He is heavier and gets tired easily. Also I messed up the bottom of the shoe and customer service exchanged them for me. I will be buying more of these shoes, PLEASE do not stop making them.

I just ordered mine, very excited to try them out. I’ve noticed price is a factor to many, so I wanted to pass this on. I ordered mine today online at http://www.footsmart.com and entered promo code smsshoe3 and saved 15% and FREE SHIPPING! Which brought the $109 cost on the Easytone Go Outside down to $93. Any savings help, thought I’d pass it alone.

I live in utah, and ordered my shoes from jcpenney very excited to get them and try them out. I work in a kitchen and am on my feet most of the day so it will be interesting to see if I get any results!!! also jcpenney had them on sale for 89.99 plus a $15 coupon so I spent $80 that is pretty comparable if you want a good shoe.

(94) Melanie says:

After reading a ton of comments, and searching the web for the best prices, I bought the shoes. Can’t wait to get them. I’ll be using them indoors over the Winter but when Summer comes around I’ll get a good 3 miles a day in the outside! I bought mine at foot locker for $79.00 bucks PLUS $10.00 off ( because I spent more than $50.00 ) My total came to just under $77.00 INCLUDING shipping. The white/green ones are for this price only.

(96) Flatfoot says:

@ Biomech Skeptic – I can understand what you’re saying, in theory, but I have to disagree in practice. I can’t speak to the Reebok EasyTones yet, I’m here doing research before trying them. But, I can speak to the benefits of MBT’s.

I’m EXTREMELY flat-footed, I’ve always had extremely weak ankles, I have a 6 year old massive knee injury (3 ligaments), I have a bad back, and weak hamstrings from the surgery to repair my knee, as well as fibromyalgia. I KNOW, I’m a mess!

I bought the MBT’s about 2 months ago, at the suggestion of some people who’d seen me in pain – and these shoes have changed my life. Parts of my lower legs that I thought had atrophied during my knee recovery are becoming very well-developed. My ankles, which were beginning to look like elephants, from the stresses on them, and the injuries to them, now look and feel like normal, human ankles. My knees feel less strain. And, the FIRST thing I’d noticed is how much better my posture was, immediately.

It’s my opinion that wearing these MBT’s has strengthened me, all over. I have a LOT LESS pain, and my added strength has improved my overall physical confidence. If the Reebok EasyTones can do this for less money (and I’ll test them well, before I buy), I’m all for them!

BTW, I don’t much like the Sketchers. They’re better than regular sneakers, but not in the same league as my MBT’s.

I just ordered my Easytones from Footlocker.com and used the promotional code LKS19V99 for $20 off. For my $99.00 shoes, my final total was $92.42. I can’t wait to get them!!!!

November 9, 2009 at 12:45 am
(98) BeComfortable says:

I have tried MBT’s and these shoes are formulated just like them. The issue is that they are designed for everyday walking and may be useful while doing leg exercises such as lunges and squates. However, when it comes to more intense exercise like jogging, running, or walking on anything other than a completely flat surface they can be harmful to your back and cause you to trip. If you live in tennis shoes sure these are great for everyday errands but not so much for a gym workout or jog.

(100) kitschywoman says:

I see the Reebok EasyTone shoes as a way to get a little extra “oomph” from my ordinary walking activities (i.e. while shopping, doing yardwork, etc.). Due to the inherent instability in the soles, I’d never use them for exercise activities where balance would be an issue. But I’m really looking forward to getting a pair so I can get a little more workout from my daily activities, on top of my regular exercise routines, which I conduct in traditional “gym” shoes.

November 10, 2009 at 12:24 pm
(101) Shannon says:

I have a big dog that needs 2 long (1hr. +) walks per day. This takes a good chunk of time out of my day and I find it hard to add time at the gym. These shoes sound like a great way to step up the walks that I am already taking. I think it’s silly to expect them to replace the gym, but a good way to augment and enhance your current excersize plan.

I went to dicks today and tried them on, im having the same problem with them the ankle/heel it slips up and down rubbing even with a smaller size, i know this is going to be a problem because i have a pair of newbalance that do that too and I get blisters. Anyone else?

(103) biomech skeptic says:

@ Flatfoot
I am glad to hear MBTs have been such a lifesaver… and I do secretly hope that EasyTones are another miracle shoe.
I guess I’m quietly seething at the marketing ploy of the commerical I saw (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCHKXICefFw) and the lack of total disclosure in terms of risks and research that these shoes represent.
I’m flatfooted myself and have multiple ankle and shin problems because of it so I can definitely understand the desire for a shoe like this.
I just hope those that do purchase it do so knowing the limitations and potential risks involved as Reebok doesn’t seem to publish research results.

I’m a Sketchers fan but the Sketchers leg toning shoes look like rocking chairs for your feet, I’m not a fan of this brand, never have been because my grandma wore them when I was a kid, but these shoes I would actually wear out in public like when I go shopping or walking and stuff because they are cute and get good use out of them.

I’m going today to check out the easy tones. I’m very excited to try these out. I bought my last pair of tennis shoes from The Sports Autority. They offer insurance for your shoe purchase. If they breakdown you file a claim and receive a check for the amount you paid for the shoe. Getting ready to turn in my Nike ($115), insurance ($15) for the reeboks. It will be like getting them for $15!

I can’t believe how many people aren’t willing to pay $100 for a good pair of shoes. Especially people who are on their feet all day! After two foot surgeries I can tell you that a better pair of shoes is ALWAYS worth the price. (If you doubt me just factor in foot pain every night or time off -usually a month of recovery per foot!)

November 13, 2009 at 12:42 pm
(113) Jane says:

For me and my partner, they are a godsend.

I got them because of chronic problems with my right ankle, after reading these comments, and after cross-comparing with the Sketchers competitor. I chose the Reebok over the Sketchers because of the 360 degree fine muscle activity. The Sketchers actually felt better as far as the ankle was concerned, keeping it very level and straight as I walked, but that’s not really what I wanted. I wanted to strengthen those lateral muscles that stabilize the foot naturally.

Besides…the Reebok were cuter. :D

After two days of wearing these shoes, the pain is nearly gone, my knees are more stable as well, an unexpected benefit, as it the fact that my lower back feels ten years younger. I figure skate and balanced joint strength is vital. I’ve already noticed a difference in the stability of my edges.

I encouraged my partner, who also skates, to try them out. Her feet are the exact opposite of my flat frog feet, having very high arches which have always been difficult to fit with running shoes of any brand. She tried these on…and walked out of the store with them, with a spring in her walk I haven’t seen in years.

These shoes have a marvelous added benefit I haven’t seen mentioned anywhere. The ball at the toe encourages you to use your toes around it as you walk and squat…very necessary for skating, but also for healthy strong feet in general. Most shoes discourage toe action, being basically hard shell casings around the toes. This encourages it…in fact, demands it. I suspect that’s where much of its “28%” added benny comes from. They challenge fine muscles, not the big ones, and those little suckers use up lots of energy.

If you don’t use that, if you passively let the shoes do the work, I can see where people could have some of the problems described above.

I have limited funds for something like this, but when these wear out, I guarantee, I’m going back for more.

So I have ALWAYS been a Nike runner shoe person and ADIDAS sandals, but since I dont always have time to go work out I am thinking of cheating on my new Nikes, and since these are only $99 I am thinking of trying them, your feed back really helped me make my decision….thx everyone

November 17, 2009 at 11:47 am
(117) suzie says:

I bought these shoes just the other day after trying them on! I though they would feel funny but they are surprisingly comfortable! They are very soft to walk in sort of like walking on sand! I dont know whether or not my back side will look any better after wearing them but I intend to find out! I am a nurse and am on my feet a lot a work which is where I wear these so hopefully they are worth the $104.00 I spent on them!

(118) Jenni says:

I’m wearing my new pair today. I’ve had them on for 2 hours, and can definitely feel my legs getting a work out. Plus, I like the fact that they don’t look as dorky as the MBT’s.

November 17, 2009 at 11:05 pm
(119) Jen says:

I loved mine while they lasted. They definitely worked you and were extremely comfortable. They only lasted a month or two before I walked the bottom off of them so they would squish air out each step I took.

Has anyone worn both the EasyTone and FitFlops? I’m interested in how they compare. I live in my FitFlops and would love to be able to work out in them, but they’re not really made for that (since they’re flip flops, duh.) I have flat feet and plantar fasciitis and my FitFlops have given me my life back. Any comparisons are greatly appreciated!!

(121) Laurie says:

I’ve been wearing EasyTones nearly everyday for almost a month. I work in a big box store and walk/stand on concrete all day.

I’ve owned the fitflops for about a year now. They are beyond comforable, but I don’t think they have done a thing to “tone” my legs. I have a feeling it’s the same with these shoes.

I bought them….they were great until I was unlucky enough to step on a tack and deflated the front ball :( I would recommend that you wear them ONLY indoors (such as a Gym environment) I have also used the MBT before but they are not cute at all….and I would not recommend wearing them in a gym they are way to heavy.

I would try these shoes but the advertised commercial has no cultural competency. We have too many issues involving the dangers of negative self image, that showing a perfectly sculpted woman’s body with talking breasts and leaving a final image of her backside bending over frankly disgusts me. I’ll never wear anything that says Reebok ever again in my life. I’ll discourage anyone from supporting something so thoughtless and objectifying of women.

They are not at all like MBT’s which I have had for the past 5 years. Nor are they like running shoes- also which I have used daily. Both are great in their own right….

December 1, 2009 at 12:38 am
(138) Jess says:

Are many of you finding that the ball wears out after the 2 month mark? After reading all the comments, it seems like 2 months is the shelf life of these shoes, which is pretty short, considering how much they cost, and how little exercise you can actually do in them.

After reading all the comments above and doing a little more research I was sold on these sneakers.
I went and bought a pair at Lady Foot Locker and wore them around the mall – they are way comfortable and I could feel some muscle differences.
I have now used them on the treadmill (for speed walking and elevation only). My only complaints are my feet feel really hot and my heel does come out a little when walking super fast.

I love these shoes. I am a plus size girl who was out of shape & with a big foot (size 11). I bought these 1 week before we went to D.C. this summer. I wore them for 3 days touring D.C. I thought i might have a problem but they where great! Now i can’t stand my other tennis shoes they don’t feel as comfortable. After D.C. i started wearing these on my treadmill and just doing errands. I can tell the differance. Plus they help me jump start my workout routine. I now am able to run on the treadmill, but not in these shoes. (I was told at lady footlocker not to use them for anything else but walking.) My mom & sister thought I was crazy becasue of the price but I would buy them again!I would pay anything as long as my feet don’t hurt at the end of the day.

(143) Beth says:

My Easy Tones are extremely comfortable until I’ve had them on for about a mile into my walk and then the front of my foot gets numb. It helps a little to loosen the shoe laces. They do work my legs though. I’m hesitant about returing them because they are comforatable and I can see the results.

I’M THINKING OF TRYING THEM….I HAD KNEE SURGERY AND OF COURSE THE MUSCLE AROUND THE KNEE’S BECOME WEAK. I’M IN THE GYM NOW WITH A PERSONAL TRAINER WORKING ON SOME OF THOSE MUSCLE THAT THE SHOES SAY THEY INCREASE…IT WONT HURT TO HAVE THOSE MUSCLE ON CHECK ALL DAY LONG I THINK IN THE LONG RUN IT WILL BE GOOD FOR ME AND CONTINUE THE GYM.
I will comment back after a couple of months of trying them out…I still have some pain if any body has had knee surgery you know what I’m talking about…

Re-iterating some and answering to a few previous posts:
-EasyTones come in ‘Wide’ sizes
-EasyTones also come as Flipflops
-These great shoes are NOT for Running or Tennis or Sports such as Basketball etc..

As someone stated earlier, these are meant for everyday walking, such as non-workouts – walking to the grocery store, park etc.. and pls Don’t go nuts walking over 2 miles the very first day of use!! Give your body time to adjust – it is different from time to ‘break-in’. In any case these shoes don’t need breaking into, but your body does need to get used to these…..so build up the time spent walking in these. Just like you wouldn’t advise an absolute beginner at cardio to walk 4 miles the very first day!!

these shoes are amazing i bought them at my store purely because they were very comfy i didnt care about the leg shapping and stuff. to my very pleasant surprise they have fixed my posture my feet no longer turn in my shin splints are gone and my lower back is pain free! added that afetr 3 weeks of waering them at work 8 hrs a day my legs look totally different im amazed they do what they say and sooooo much more. i may have bought these cheaper but i would pay the $100 for them anyday. as a matter of fact i am buying them for my mom and sister for christmas.

I can honestly say that I am a big fan, the easy tone shoes work very well. I am a nurse and I spend most of the day on my feet and I thought I’d wear them see how they worked and after wearing them and walking around in them, I would recommend them to everyone! They are comfortable and you can feel it in your calfs and thighs with in minutes. I have three pairs and I want more!!! Great Job REEBOK!!

(152) Jess says:

I tried the EasyTone sneakers and was not a fan.

I far prefer the SmartSole Exercise Insole
(http://www.smartsole.com) My trainer recommended them to me. They are super comfortable and you can wear them to tighten and tone in any flat shoe. So you are burning extra calories while you are just running errands. The EasyTone sneakers are only designed to be worn when working out. I also found the code fit10 on the Prevention website which saved me 10% on my smartsole fitness insoles.

(153) Jess says:

I have had a pair since June and I must say that while I had numbness and pain on the bottom of my feet the first few times walking in them that dissipated and they are fantastic!! I use them on cardio equipment and for weight training they are the most comfortable – I tried the Curves shoe did not like…

Remember that there are different models and if you are using for outdoor use you need to purchase the outdoor walker. Many have asked if they fit wide feet – they do come in wide sizing and I wear my regular foot size.

I have worked in the shoe industry for a couple of years now. There have been several brands that have attempted similar styles to this Reebok. There is one major difference I see with the MBT and the Reebok. The MBT is designed with what we call a negative heel. This is designed to create a rocker sole on the shoe, basically rolling the foot through the walking motion. Conversly the Reebok has a flat sole built on two wabbly air pockets. The concept is correct in the sense that it forces your muscles to work harder. My experience with people that have foot, leg, and back problems that this is not a good long term solution. It is better to have a comfortable shoe that gives you proper support, that it is to have a comfortable shoe that delibarately creates instability. If you are interested in working out those parts of your body and don’t have much time, I would recommended doing palates or something like that from the comfort of your home. I have concerns about the long-term effects of wearing a shoe built like this one.

December 10, 2009 at 11:17 am
(155) C says:

I had a pair of the MBTs and aside from being ugly and uncomfortable (they’re plastic, NOT leather) no matter how long I wore them I never felt anything. Well, I felt taller and Frankenstein-like. But no extra muscle action…proving my legs and butt are much stronger than I’d realized. Or maybe my body mechanics are just good from long habit. I expected at minimum the smaller stabilizer muscles would feel some work…but nothing. But then I don’t find walking in soft sand difficult, either. And I’m no gym rat!

Still, I’ll be trying out the Reeboks not so much for the supposed toning action but because they seem really comfortable for all-day wear and the ones I tried on (to ensure right size before asking for them as a gift) in the store were surprisingly nice. The MBTs were not (the heel portion of the sole has some squish but no padding at all inside the shoe) and made my feet hot.

If your lower body is weak this type of shoe may help. If it’s already strong, don’t expect to notice anything much.

(156) kate says:

these shoes maybe as advertised, however, if you don’t fit into the narrow/regular width foot they are not available for you. also, they don’t manufactor men’s sizes for women to move to when the smaller women’s sizes will not fit. bought from competitor.

December 13, 2009 at 11:04 am
(157) Nicole says:

The commercial I saw really got me interested in these shoes but from reading reviews on this site and others… Makes me change my mind about them. For $100-$124 dollars… they better be cute. They also better be made to walk, run, jog, lift weights, and everything else in them. From what I read about the shoes… The are not made to run in or lift heavy weights. Definitely not worth $100 dollars.

(158) Michele Andrew says:

I bought the Sketchers because Sketchers always fit me better than Reeboks. They are cute in black and white with tiny rhinestones by each eyelet. I have used them at the gym for treadmill, elliptical and weight training as well as around the house and I love the feel.

At Reebok.com you can customize your own pair so that you get colors that are actually cute, instead of the ugly pre-made styles they have. I just made a blue and yellow pair and it was lots of fun!

I am interested in the Easytone, but..I feel like (and my shoes look like) I am leaning, walking -don’t know which-to the outside of my legs and feet. Will these shoes, or any shoes, help correct this?

December 14, 2009 at 3:11 pm
(162) Lisa says:

I bought these just over a week ago at Dicks. I was concerned about the wearing out after reading the comments here, so I purchased the shoe warranty for $12. If they wear out, as some people have said, they will replace the shoes.

I work a p/t where I’m on my feet 7 hours a day/3 days per week. I wore them for every shift last week and had no problems with my feet feeling numb as some other people had stated, and my feet aren’t nearly as sore as they are when I wear any of my Adidas sneakers. That was my main reason for purchasing them, so any other benefit will be icing on the cake!

FWIW, I have run on the treadmill with them twice. I did 2 1/2 miles in them earlier today. While they may not be “made” for running, I don’t have a problem with them and again, they’re more comfortable than my “running” shoes.

I got some last week and I love them. They are very comfortable and easy to walk in. I walk about a mile daily and I have worn them to the gym on the eliptical. Work great- more comfortable than my regular running shoes. I would not recommend them for playing sports of course. But for walking and to the gym for moderate work outs, I think they are great and well worth the money (again, for me they fit great and are very comfortable so far- great padding on the ballof the foot).
I think they would be great if you have ankle problems… I think my ankles are stronger already from using them just a week. now I want the fitflops!

I got a pair of Ryn Shoes at Bliss World and they are absolutely amazing. I know they are more expensive, but the results are certainly worth it.
Ryn I think is the premium in the new Rocker Sole category — they are so good they don’t really need to advertise.

December 16, 2009 at 11:36 am
(166) Beth says:

I wanted to add to what Daniela is saying about Ryn shoes. I absolutely love mine: really hard to wear for more than an hour at the beginning the workout is so good, but after a few weeks you get used to them and nicely toned in my case. BUT they are very hard to find at the moment, very exclusive —– you can find out more about Ryn Shoes by joing their facebook page.

I LOVE THEM!! Recovering from a knee and back injury is tough you start to walk differently to compensate for pain and being an active person my whole life it is tough. I figured I needed to change the way I walked, to retrain myself and these sneakers did the trick. I can walk all day again the pain is minimal and I just bought my second pair. They are worth every penny!!!

(168) Amy says:

I bought these at the reebok outlet. They indicated that they can be returned as long as they are not worn outside. Felt great when I tried them on at the store and in the house. First time wearing them outside for my daily hour long walk and they HURT! Makes my toes numb and have the feeling the heel is slipping. Adjusted the laces and the numbness lessened but got blisters on my toes. Shoe creases at the wrong spot near the toe box causing a lot of pain on the top of the foot. Worn 3 times hoping for alternate ending. Hope I can take them back…or at least get a store credit. Very disappointed.

(169) Cristen says:

I think that the reebok easytone shoes are a sad excuse for a workout. I would not recommend buying this product to tone your legs. The only thing that actually tones your muscles is EXERCISE.
this product is a sad excuse for lazy people,who want to work out but can’t get their fat asses, and legs, in this case, to the gym!

December 19, 2009 at 4:34 pm
(170) Zoe says:

A couple of comments… I feel like there is a lack of common sense with some people. With shoes like this you have to slowly work up. If you’re used to walking long distances, great, but these types of shoes, MBT’s, Shape Ups, Easy Tones, you have to slowly work up. I’m sitting here like this: 0.o reading people whining about how they walked two miles it hurt their feet and they’re returning the shoe, like it’s a problem with the shoe.

It isn’t. It’s a problem with you taking a totally different kind of shoe and basically moving in a way you are totally not used to and trying to go full throttle immediately. The Sketcher’s brand warns you to start slow, maybe Reebok needs to carry this warning as well.

To the person who said: “Mine deflated in two months” You were walking one and a half hours a day. Walking shoes should be replaced every 3-6 months. And that’s walking 30-60 minutes a day. It’s not hard to see how you walking 90 minutes a day deflated your shoes in 2 months. That’s just normal wear and tear. The more you walk, the more often you have to replace walking shoes.

Common sense people.

Sorry I’ll stop being a *B* now. Just reading some of these comments I wonder how people dress themselves.

December 19, 2009 at 10:28 pm
(171) Zoe says:

Okay, after further research apologies are in order from me. I think the people who are wary about the Easy Tones are right to be. I’ve just finished spending hours researching walking and running shoes and biomechanics and blah blah blah. Not saying I’m an expert after only a few hours of reading but… I will NOT be buying Easy Tones because “balance pods” under your feet are probably the stupidest things we could put under our feet, besides shoes in general. (Yeah I’m almost a barefoot convert in only a few hours of reading. This is based on articles by podiatrists who are starting to see the benefits of barefoot or as close to barefoot as possible for foot and postural health in general.)

I was reading about studies where runners who wore more high-end cushioned running shoes, had more foot and joint injuries than people who had much less expensive shoes. And tribal cultures where they run all the time barefoot and none of them have the injuries and joint problems our country has.

Even if it feels like you’re walking on a cloud, it’s my opinion that it’s a bad idea because anything that further weakens the foot muscles (and the more cushioning you have, the more of that you have) the worse off you are.

Shoes I’m looking into now: Nike Free (super flexible shoe that mimics natural foot movement), and Vibram Fivefingers (probably the closest thing you’ll ever get to barefoot.) I consider Nike Free a transitional shoe working toward something like Vibram Fivefingers.

Ironically all this crap we put in our shoes to support our feet and walk better, are the problem.

Jury is still out, I’m not saying my view after a lot of research today is the 100% infallible truth but I’m leaning towards less support and building up foot muscles.

So cushiony cloud shoes that supposedly firm up my butt are totally out. I’ll do squats for my butt like normal people.

(173) Bridget says:

I just purchased easytones last week, and so far so good. I only wore them for a few hours the first day, as they made my feet slightly sore, but now I wear them all day. I definitely feel as though they are triggering certain muscles, so I will continue to wear them. I read on a review here that someone stepped on a tack and the front air cushion collapsed. Interesting. Explains the indoor/outdoor versions. I’m glad I purchased a replacement plan for $11.00 for the shoes when I purchased them at Dick’s Sporting Goods. Oh, I wanted to mention to go up 1/2 size too. I’m happy so far!

December 21, 2009 at 5:01 pm
(174) Jen says:

Curves makes an affordable alternative to these and MBT. I own the sneakers, and sandals and love them. I have 2 kids and never spend that kind of money on my own shoes so the Curves version work well for me, for $49.99. You can find them on Avon.com. I was suffering from plantar fasciitis after the birth of my daughter, and the velcro curves sandals were all I could comfortably wear. I do believe that these help tone your legs, but def not a workout replacement.

December 22, 2009 at 3:24 pm
(175) Kristee says:

I got them a month or two back and they’re the only shoes I wear! These shoes are not difficult to walk in at all- kind of fun actually! After a week I felt the burn and knew they were working. People always compliment that they’re cute, but they dont know the toning secret!(; Now I definately see the difference in my legs and butt + would recommend these to anyone. I love my easy tones!

(176) Elaine says:

they do NOT make these in wide widths!!! I have tried a pair on, they are suppose to fit snug ~ however the sales lady agreed with me that my foot is to wide and to get the width I need they are too long( I usually end up with the guys version of a shoebecause of my width)I do wish that they would realize that not all women have nice slim feet. I would love to have a pair and was willing to pay the price asked. to bad for me and my fat feet.

REEBOKS easytone are NOT what they say to be or do. SKETCHERS SHAPE UPS are by far the better work out shoe. I’ve done my research on both and tried them. SKETCHERS do exactly what they claim. I love my sketchers BETTER!! So worth the money!! TRSUT ME!!

I tried them 2 months ago and in two months that backs of the heels ripped out and one of the pockets of air is broken and all I do in my shoes is work at Walgreens. I tried to comment the company of Reebook and every time I tried when I went to submit the comment to them it would go to an error message, makes me wonder if they even want to hear from a hard working person who is on their feet all the time….A 100 dollars is alot to spend and I expected them to last longer than Walmart shoes which lasts longer than a year….

(185) Dee says:

I’ve had the Rebok easytone shoes for about a month. I went to the Lady Foot Locker to get them because the store was having 25% off everything sale. – but these shoes were the exception. No sale deal allowed for these shoes. A bit disappointing, since I drove an hour to get to the store. Could have saved myself the trip if I bought them online.

The shoes are comfortable but they are limited. I use them for work and general walking around. I went out for a long walk with a friend – maybe 5 miles. My heal was getting a bit uncomfortable by the end of the walk, but didn’t last long. I did, however, get a scab on the top of my foot – where the foot flexes for the toe. The “leather” at the base of the shoestrings is a bit stiff and rubbed my foot. I didn’t feel it at the time, but noticed the scab and discomfort the next day.

I think these are good shoes for day to day stuff. I would not set off to do any long walks on them, unless it was flat, city walking. But since they are limited, I don’t think they are worth what they are charging – esp. since you can’t get them on sale.

I am a pretty quiet walker- you don’t usually hear me walking down the hall. These shoes are a bit noisier. You can hear me walking around. If you were more of a “loud” walker, you’d probably be annoying to others.

By the way, my butt and legs look as they always have. Nothing to brag about.

I bought these at less than $100 from the Reebok in the Las Vegas Outlet Mall on Warmsprings and Las Vegas Blvd on Christmas Eve (a present to myself) and proceeded to go mall shopping for a good 4 hours! By the end, my hips were aching, knees in pain, back totally stressed and I didn’t even want to go to Food 4 Less to get celery for xmas dinner. Next day tried to wear them again while cooking the feast because I was going to be on my feet for a LONG time and AGAIN my body ached. This is the third day I’m going to wear them and if I get the same physical ailments I am going to return them. How can I exercise effectively if the shoes I’m wearing are crippling me?

I custom ordered these Dec.1.09 and received them on Christmas Eve! They are awesome! I wore them for the whole day yesterday and were extremely comfy. I am in my early 20′s and have bad back, knee, and ankle problems due to sports, these shoes immediately eased the pain. I had no back pain the whole day! Custom made, these shoes came out to 157.00 but well worth it. I am definitely going to order more!

I just got a pair and I definitely do feel them working in the back of my legs. BUT my joints have been hurting since I got them, my knees and hips and I rolled my ankle. I am only 20 so I know it isn’t from anything else. The hard soles are pretty uncomfortable too.

My husband has MBT’s (has a bad back) which he has been wearing as work shoes, have made a HUGE difference for him. I bought the poor man’s version (Skechers shape ups) which I have been walking/running in 4 days a week & wearing around the house for 6 months. They’re like walking/running on air. Harder to learn to balance on, but I have lost TWO pants sizes. I’m looking at the Easytones because they’re better looking, & I’m thinking that the raised center/uneven sole might even yield a slightly BETTER workout. We’ll see. All money well spent, so far.

i just got these sneakers for xmas and i wore them today to the gym, which i think was a mistake due to the inestability, but im guessing, from what i’ve just read here and what i experienced today, that they will probablt be OK when doing some elliptical or something similar… right?

I also noticed that I feel more the cushion of the airpod placed on the forefoot than the one placed on the heel,,, is it normal or did the airpod on the heel may have burst or something like that??

Got some easy tons for christma, love them so far, they do seem to work. After walking a normal walk I do I noticed I more tired and my legs were a little sore… it’s like walking in sand which is nice cause while you get a work out it doesn’t feel like you’re killing you feet or legs.

December 29, 2009 at 1:11 am
(197) Chelsea says:

Ok, I was trying to figure out which shoes I should purchase the Sketchers Shapeups or the EasyTone. After reading the product specifications I would NEVER consider buying the EasyTone. I maybe a little biased because I have one extremely bad ankle and the other is probably below par as well. Walking with your feet on uneven ground (not like an incline, like walking on rocks) is not good for your ankles or knees as you can easily roll them and destroy your ligaments for life. These shoes promote you to carelessly do just this. Incase you don’t believe me I stepped the wrong way on a curb once and fractured and sprained two ligaments in my foot at the same time.
Now if these shoes extended to support the whole width of your foot and made it less likely for your feet to roll side to side I might try them. The Sketchers seem to do this. It seems like it would make it like you were walking at an incline.
The Sketchers also seem more durable as they don’t depend on air pockets staying inflated to work. If you are concerned about looks they have 4 pgs of shapeups with boots, tennis shoes and shoes you can wear to work. The work shoes are OSHA slip resistant.

You may not have bad ankles and knees and still be considering Easytones but I really advise you against it. I have a feeling that these shoes are going to cause a lot of NEW ankle and knee injuries… Why do you think they advise against activities that have a lot of lateral movement? Exactly.
Thanks to Jess on the SmartSoles alternative. I will be looking into these before I pay $100 for the Shapeups.

I just got my first pair of Reebok Easy Tone shoes 5 days ago. Just like almost every other woman who’s left a comment, I LOVE THEM! The moment I started walking around in these shoes, I knew they were one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I’ve ever owned. I bring them to work with me so I can walk on my 15 minute breaks and I can already feel a difference. These shoes make me enjoy going for walks again!! I try to find reasons to get out and walk now. I totally recommend giving them a shot, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised like the rest of us.

I just got these for Christmas and LOVE THEM! They are super comfortable and easy to walk in. I didn’t feel unbalanced and the silver / pink color worked for me. I’m anxious to find out if I will actually be able to tell the difference in my legs / butt in a few weeks. I did read the leaflet and these shoes are not to be used for running or working out – they are strictly walking shoes.

(206) Kris says:

Just got these for Christmas and have worn them to the gym on the eliptical and treadmill (walking on incline, not running). My regular workouts are really kicking my butt even more now…in a good way. I always work out pretty hard, but it seems as though with these shoes, it’s really kicked into high gear. Too soon to tell if any toning can be attributed to them. I don’t feel unstable at all. They are lightweight and comfortable. I would recommend them. They are pricey, but like someone else said, if you get them at Dick’s and use an Entertainment book coupon, you can save $20.

Payless has their own version, Stride and Tone, made similar to the Reebok shoe but only $30 in the U.S. I assume they are available in Canada, but not sure.

idk. I think they’re just as effective as the Skechers Shape Ups, if anything they’re a copy of the Shape Ups.

i have had my pair for 2 weeks and LOVE them, i put them on the minute i got them, they are super comfy have never hurt my feet i dont feel unbalanced at all. i do feel that they give my legs and butt a better work out. I walk a lot but also wear them as everyday shoes…every little bit helps. Very happy with these and i would pay 200. if i had to thats how much i like them

January 3, 2010 at 9:37 pm
(211) cheers says:

I was really excited when the sketchers Shape-Ups came out until I saw how bulky and ugly they are. I’m already 6 feet tall and I try to find shoes that make me as short as possible and was daunted by the size of the sole that would make me at least 2 inches taller. So when I heard about Reebok’s shoes, and saw that they look like normal athletic shoes (and sometimes I feel self-conscious in those because of the 1 inch heel) I was excited. I also saw some cool looking fashionable rubber boots at Whole Foods for $100 that are supposed to shape your body in red, yellow, and green. They were completely flat. I was really excited that they were made in the USA in a fair trade green process using recycled products.

I am suppose to get mine on Friday…after reading the comments, I’m thinking about reselling them. A lot of comments about deflating and ankle slip…doesn’t sound too promising.

(213) Jill says:

I just bought a pair of the easy tone shoes in black. I love mine. They are comfortable and they look great too. They feel like they work but I haven’t owned they long enough to see results. I agree they would not be the best for lateral movements or lots of jumping. They are best for just everyday walking or at work. I play volleyball and I dance and anyway to increase my vertical and streghten my legs is great. Overall I love these shoes and I definatly think that they are a great investment. :)

January 4, 2010 at 8:48 pm

They are great!! After wearing them for a day I was not so much sore, just aware I had a rear end. I will buy another pair.

I very interested in purchasing a pair of Easytone but I live on gravel roads, will they hold up to walking on gravel?

My daughters bought me a pair for Christmas…I went upstairs and put them on…on my way downstairs, I missed the last three steps???? Fell, twisted my ankle and fractured some bones on the top of my foot??? Can’t say for sure, if it was the new Easy Tones, but I never did that before…

(218) Carol says:

!!*WARNING*!!
I’ve wanted a pair of these shoes for a while!! I finally was able to order myself a pair for Christmas. Talk about a nightmare! I found the perfect pair at finishline.com. They were the shiny metallic pair. Around $124. I bought them on December 27th. and was told my order was ‘processing’ every time I checked on it. Finally on the 7th of January I called to complain about my still ‘processing’ shoes. Turns out. They NEVER had a pair of the shoes in my size. I was sold the shoes in hopes that they would find a pair matching the ones I bought in one of their stores. Which they did not.
Basically, I bought a pair of shoes that DID NOT EXIST.
These shoes look great and I’ve heard awesome things about them. However, if you decide to purchase a pair, watch out for this website!

(219) fanof24 says:

Well, after several months of wanting them, I finally bought a pair last night. I really wanted to order them online and get the colors I wanted but just couldn’t bring myself to pay an extra $50 to get a fun color especially since I didn’t know if I would like them. However, if you have the money, they have some REALLY cute colors and you can deisgn your own and reebok.com. Anyhow, I wore them around last night and did not want to take them off…had to force myself at bed time to take them off. Wearing them to work today ( I work at a school and we have a snow day today so I plan to walk the halls for a while today) I think they will be great, Love them so far but haven’t had them long enough to know much more than that. I am glad to hear what others are saying. I suppose everyone is different and like every other product out there, works for some and not for others. I say if you are interested, give it a try…never know what will work for YOU unless you try. I think there are enough possitives here to be worth giving it a try at least! :0)

January 7, 2010 at 5:14 pm
(220) Shawna says:

I have 3 pair and have been wearing them everyday since I got them! They are so comfortable! I don’t wear them to replace my workout, only enhance it. Someone told me last night that my legs looked stronger… so I guess they are working!

January 7, 2010 at 8:26 pm
(221) Samantha says:

I bought them and LOVE them. I only paid $89 at the store for them too. They are super cumfy and for toning not replacing a workout. If you walk, and most of us do, then why not use a shoe that will help tighten up muscles.

January 7, 2010 at 11:58 pm
(222) QUEEN MARIA says:

I DEFINITELY CHOOSE THIS OVER SKETCHERS THAT LOOKS LIKE A FLAT FORM.. JUST GOT A NEW PAIR TONIGHT AND I HAVENT TRIED IT YET.. I HOPE IT WORKS GOOD ON ME.. AND BLACK AND WHITE IS REALLY CUTE..NOT THE UGLIEST 1..

January 8, 2010 at 10:21 pm

OK.. FIRST DAY OF WEARING MY NEW REEBOK EASYTONE FOR 8HRS.. WOW !!! IT WAS SO GOOD AND VERY COMFORTABLE.. LOOKS VERY SPORTY AND CO WORKERS CAN’T HELP ASKING ME.. SO ELEGANT, AND YET BETTER THAN SKETCHERS.. I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT 100 %…

(224) Bambi says:

My mom purchased me a pair for my birthday, because I had been talking about them. They are so comfortable and they make working out at the gym or walking a breeze. My mom has problems with her feet (she’s 80), I told her to try a pair on, she bought herself a pair and she wears them daily and loves them.

(226) Visay says:

My mom bought me these shoes as a present yesterday. I was a bit concerned as I’m 194 lbs and have heel spurs and am very flatfooted. Additionally, I was suffering from back and joint pains yesterday. I didn’t feel like doing my usual run last night so I slipped on the Easytones and walked two kilometres on the treadmill and then around the house for an hour. I actually felt an improvement in the pain caused by the heel spurs and the back ache was alleviated too. I usually have to keep my right foot flexed while sitting so that I don’t feel too much pain while waking. So far these seem so ideal that I’m thinking of buying the flip flop version.

January 10, 2010 at 10:31 pm
(227) sarah says:

I’ve worn these shoes for about 2 days now, and I’m definitely a fan – though I can’t speak to their workout powers; I wasn’t sore and really didn’t feel any muscles working any harder. I’m definitely keeping them though, they are SO comfortable!! Way soft, and not in the ‘too soft unsupportive’ way. I did notice, like a few other people who commented, that my heel slips a bit and the crease over the toes is a little sharp. But they’re brand new shoes, and I’m confident they’ll get better as I wear them in – plus, I’m not a moron who walks for miles the first day I try on some brand new walking shoes. To those of you who did that and decided they hated the shoes – have you never had new shoes before?? What were you thinking? Don’t blame the poor shoes, they’re innocent! They just wanted you to break them in gently!
Also – I have had alignment problems my whole life (flat feet, weak ankles, tilted hip, one leg longer than the other, yadda yadda yadda), and I have had no pain or tiredness whatsoever in my knees or ankles (which usually happens even after a short walk). I also felt like my posture was a little better when I was walking, but that could be wishful thinking. Anyway, they’re really fun to walk in, and not having any back/ankle/knee pain means I’m in love :)

one last thing – the EasyTones don’t look nearly as dorky as the moon-boot MBTs and Sketchers!

January 10, 2010 at 11:35 pm
(228) june says:

These are the best feeling shoes that I’ve worn. I did wear Merrells all the time but now these are so much better. It took a long time to find the color I wanted, found them at Dick’s sporting goods.I’ve been wearing these for 4 days now, so don’t know whether they work to tone or not but the comfort is worth buying them. They take a little getting used to.

January 11, 2010 at 2:20 pm
(229) Amber Dziengel says:

I have been using Easytones for about 2 weeks (about 5 hours/day), and I don’t feel anything at all! :( It could be because I do work out a lot already, so they don’t do as much for me? Not sure, but they are comfortable for my flat feet, so that’s a plus.

January 11, 2010 at 8:58 pm
(230) Amanda says:

Just bought a pair last night after reading all the great reviews. Was fortunate enough to use a competitor coupon and get them for $25 off at Sports Chalet. Wore them today on a 2 mile walk and could definitely feel a difference going up and down hills. I don’t think I will try to jog in them, but for fast walking they felt great and I will most likely be sore (in a good way) tomorrow.

January 12, 2010 at 9:45 am
(231) MAX says:

im working in sport store so usually imake training for the new staff , so when i check the easy tone we got more than 2 or 3 model like (Go out side or sunssa ,…) its almost the same but when i check the outer sole its diffrent so iwant to confirm if there is any diffrent in technology thx

January 14, 2010 at 8:13 am
(232) gbysmom says:

My boyfriend saw me looking at these online, I was looking at the black and pink. He couldn’t find them in the USA so he called Reebok. They were only sold in the UK. He ordered them, the shipping was more than the shoes. So for about $180 I got them for Christmas. He asked me what size i wear, I wear a 7. When I got the shoes, they are a 7.5. I feel like I have clown feet when wearing them and I need to know if they will actually even work being that they are too big. Also, I have a very high arch and I have always felt that Reebok, any style, doesn’t support my arch. These are no better. I will say this, they claim to work by imbalance, I wore them to aerobics class last week and we were doing some balance moves, and to my surprise, I was really off balance. I didn’t feel that they were great workout shoes. They are fine if i’m just walking on the treadmill or on the elyptical but my feet actually started hurting during the workout. I can’t tell though if that’s from them being too big. That may not happen if they are actually the right size.

January 14, 2010 at 3:10 pm
(233) Michele says:

I bought these Reebok EasyTone shoes in black at Nordstrom a few months ago. I wear a size 7 Nike and had to get these in a 6.5. The top of the shoe squeezes my toes yet my heel can slip right out. I wear these to walk 2-3 miles at time. I find that I am unstable in these shoes, I walk with my husband and I bumped into him a few times. My ankles hurt slightly while wearing them, too. I walk at MOA and the soles tap just a little too loud for my liking.
I will spend any amount of money on a great sneaker so $110 wasn’t hard to pay but I wish they were more comfortable. I certainly prefer the look of them to MBT and Skechers.
I would not attempt to wear these while running or working out.
I cannot say that I have noticed a difference in my calves, hamstrings or butt muscles. My best advice is save your money, instead spend $10 on 30 Day Shred and feel better all over.

January 14, 2010 at 4:34 pm
(234) dj says:

I got a pair for Christmas, and even if they don’t do everything they tout, they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever had! Normally, no matter what shoes I wear, my heels hurt at the end of the day. I have worn these all day for 4 days in a row with NO heel pain! They are like walking on cushions. That said, I actually can tell that they are toning my calves some.

January 14, 2010 at 6:39 pm
(235) D says:

Anyone know the difference between the types of the Reebok easytone shoes besides the price??? The website didn’t really say anything different about the description so i’m not sure which ones i should get… Can anyone please help me out?!?? Thanks!! :-)

(239) dana Davis says:

I just bought the easytones today at Foot Locker. I was told by the associate not to run in them for they aren’t made for that, BUT they are coming out with a Easytone running shoe sometime in April/May. You can go to the gym and use the treadmill/eliptical. Also, about the different names of the shoes, I have been told that it is just the styles, there are outdoor ones, but they are all the same shoe, just new versions with different names

January 18, 2010 at 2:36 pm
(240) Leslie says:

Beware before you buy. Ordered a custom pair of easy tone shoes December 13th from Reebok.com. Finally (after several phone calls to Reebok) just recieved the shoes today – box was shipped from China. I ordered silver, the shoes I recieved were all white with yellow. Called Reebok customer service and they could not help – “not trained in this product”. Referred me to an email address that will not be answered for 3 or more days. Horrible customer service and stuck with a big bill and the wrong shoes.

(241) Alli says:

I read that someone said the colors were a bad choice, but you can no cusomize the shoes and i have my name on mine and they are black and green the colors I wanted. They were 129$ which isn’t bad because I run crosscountry and some of my shoes are more then that. My Reebok Easytones also have my name on the back :)

These shoes deff work i got them for christmas and i have worn them frequently but even when im not wearing them i feel a difference when i walk like my legs arnt working nearly as hard as before. They are comfy too! the only thing i dont like is that the bottom of the shoe is bigger looking so i feel like ppl are looking at my feet. But a def plus is they make me taller!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

January 21, 2010 at 1:58 pm
(244) Jess says:

I have had these sneakers since December and I must say they are very comfortable. They are very stable to walk in and although I haven’t noticed much of a difference in definition, my legs feel like they have been worked out when wearing the sneakers for daily activities.

(245) Kelli says:

Got a pair for Christmas. I LOVE the look of the shoe (have the new hot pink and silver version) but after three classes and the gym and one walk around the neighborhood, I’ve decided they HAVE to go! I feel like my feet are shattering- very similar to shin splints. Extremely painful and inhibit my workout.

January 24, 2010 at 4:23 pm
(246) stacey says:

I got these shoes for what they say they do and NOT because of the STUPID commercial..I think the commercial for the easy tone shoes are horrible. I actually feel bad for buying the shoes I feel like Im promoting that kind of advertising. BUt I do lovee the shoes!!

I walk the Avon Breast Cancer Marathon and a halfs. I have worn Asics in the past. I am training for this years walk and decided to try these to see how they work.
I have been walking 10-20 miles and working out in them and they are the most comfortable shoes I have found yet.
I am hoping they will have the nicer color ones in July when I will need to replace the pairs I have for new ones. I recommend them to the MVT’s also- I personally did not care for those.

January 25, 2010 at 12:18 am

i wore them for the first time last night on my walk. wow did i feel muscles i wasnt working in regular shoes. i didnt get as far as i normally would because it was an extreme work out. i weight 320 and just started walking about a week ago. we shall see. i wouldnt wear them to work though they look a little funny.

I learned about smartsoles. they work your lower body muscles but cost only about $30. They are put into your sneakers. Also avon sells sneakers by Curves called toning shoes that are supposed to do the same.

I have never tried the Reebok, But I can tell you all that the Skechers shape Up have changed my life. I had an ankle fusion a year ago and lost the movement in my foot. I used to walk sideways but with the help of the TRULY WONDEROUS Shoes, I can walk normal again. God Bless Them.

These Reebok easy tone are the best shoes I have ever owned! I found a deal for $109 and and have been wearing them for 3 mos now, I’m a stay at home mom so, I have the luxury of wearing them from morning til night…1st weeks I noticed all of a sudden my derrier has a curve I have never seen before!! Whoo hoo! I will buy another pair! hear NIKE is making one of these also. I do own MBT sandels and those are also wonderful..But I never saw the tone I see with these reeboks! I could go on and on! buy a pair you won’t be disappointed!

January 31, 2010 at 2:21 am
(257) Ace says:

I have owned these shoes for a week now. I ordered 1/2 size bigger like suggest but they are a tad bit too big. They were gorgeous I must say, way better than they looked on the internet. Yes they are the most comfortable shoes ever, really was like walking on pillows. It wasn’t hard to stabilize and took no getting used to. I do not feel them working however, no tightness or soreness. I will continue to wear them more and se if I notice a difference. I took measurements and after a month I hope to post again and maybe with some great results to share.

(258) Tina Z says:

The “science” behind Reebok’s claims is bunk. I ranted about their claims awhile ago and my blog post has gotten a lot of hits. The claims are based on bad science, period. Click on my name to get to my post. I’m not a troll and it’s not a for-profit site. I’m just a frustrated consumer.

(259) Maura says:

I got these for Christmas and walked arouind the house with them to break them in. Went to Disney World with family and they seemd comfy enough. I took off my shoes that night and there was blood everywhere. The shoes cut into my toes on the same spot on each foot.
They have been returned.

(260) Emily says:

I went to dicks recently. And i tryed a pair on, they were like walking on big fuffy pillows. You can’t run in them or jump so i did not get them beacuse i needed running shoes, but if i ever have another 100 to spend i am buying a pair. I don’t care if they are ugly i think they totaly work, And for some one who goes to school and often does not have time to work out somedays these are ideal.

I have worn these twice and I am in serious pain! I think like a few others that my heel slides to the side causing the calf muscle to do something unnatural. It is taking forever to heal! I can barely walk on my left leg! Wish I had my $110 back!

February 7, 2010 at 1:42 pm
(264) RYEISHA says:

THEY ARE COMFORTABLE. it feel like walking on sand. not thick sand, just sand. if that makes any sense. Got them 3 days ago, so im not too sure if they are toning my but and legs, i dont feel exhausted after wearing all day.

February 8, 2010 at 3:03 pm
(265) tf says:

I just bought these for work, standing and walking 10 hours a day. I havent seen much of an excercise difference yet, but they are super comfortable and make long days much easier. Highly recommend, at least for a comfie work shoe.

February 8, 2010 at 3:20 pm
(266) Meagan says:

I just received mine so I cant say for sure how well they work yet. I can feel my muscles working harder doing just a basic walk. I dont think they should replace a good lower body workout just enhances it. They are VERY comfortable. the balance balls give a feel of walking on air. They are a little pricey though I got mine for $160 online custom ordered after taxes and shipping but I beleive you can purchase them in stores for $120.

February 9, 2010 at 2:51 pm
(267) Mickey says:

So far I have ordered two different pairs of the Easy Tone and needless to say I have returned both. They are very uncomfortable and I was told to go up a size, I did a half size, so the first was way to small(normal size) and the the half size up…My foot was swimming.

I’m done with the Easy Tone.

I bought a pair of the knockoffs at Payless and paid $30 for them. I have worn them for two days and after the first day, the muscles in the backs of my legs and lower back were sore just like I’d worked out in them. I love the way they feel on your feet. They are soft and very comfortable and I didn’t even buy the Reebok ones.

(272) Denise says:

My husband gave me a pair of these around Thanksgiving because of the amount of time I was spending standing and cooking for numerous events. I still have not worn them outside to really walk in, because I suffered an injury during the week I did wear them. (I was wearing them 6-8 hours a day, and on my feet the whole time.) I ended up at a podiatrist for an incredibly painful injury created by the “instability ball”. The podiatrist himself wears skechers tone & fit and while he agreed the principle of the shoe is the same, the rounded ball didn’t seem to offer enough support to the entire foot. I am an avid walker and usually wear New Balance, but I was so hoping for a little extra workout with these shoes that when the injury healed (8 wks) I tried the Reeboks again (hoping against hope it wasn’t the shoes), but within fifteen minutes I could feel pain along the old injury line. So to all of you who love to walk …..before you buy any of these “fit” shoes….check out the return policy. I have a brand new pair of Reebok’s but no box to return them in and so it goes.

I have been having leg pain for a few days and makes walking difficult. I seen them at Shoe Carnival for 100.00 and tried them on. They feelllllll soooooo good. Went to the store and walked and walked and no pain. I love the way it feels walking on them. Makes me feel taller too. Felt sooo good in them that I didnt want to take them off. I dont care if it does the extra toning etc they just feel great and Im pain free now. If they do help with toning that is just a added benefit. You can feel the muscles working as you walk. I recommend them 100% Well worth the price.

(274) Sara says:

The websites say to go up a half size. If you are a Nike lover, go down a half size! I wear a 10 in Nike and the 10 in easytones were too large. The run tone shoes are in finish line stores now. I bought a pair last night. I wore regular easytones today for the first time. My ankles (which have been through numerous basketball injuries) are a little sore. The balance pods push weird on the balls of my feet. I don’t think they are hard to walk in at all. I do think I noticed them working the backs of my legs a bit. I guess I will know in the morning!

(275) Karen says:

I would like to try them but for the past 3 months, no one has them in stock not even Reebok.

(276) pady says:

I bought one pair Rs. 4999/- INR. at Mumbai (INDIA). I go daily morning walk at least 1 hour. This shoes are too comfortable & I highly recommend to everyone who want soft & comfortable shoes. This shoes are very cool both look & exercise wise. It gives u comfortable walking whole road.

February 15, 2010 at 2:08 pm
(277) Anne says:

I should be getting my easytones in the middle of March. Online at Reebok you can custome design them to your liking. If you do that they take 5-7 weeks and are more expensive. I have been readying reviews and decided that I wanted to try them. I hope I love them like everyone else does. I can not wait. I joked with my husband and told him I may not look like the woman on the commercial or on the website but if I can get my legs and butt to look like that then it will be well worth the $157..lol..Once I get them I will definately leave feedback on how I like them.

February 16, 2010 at 3:59 pm
(278) Sonia says:

I just bought them on the weekend. The salesperson said they are not meant for working out/running – because they do not offer stability. They are really just for walking. Incidentally, it feels like I’m walking on air when I wear them.

(279) L Sturges says:

I was finally able to buy a pair in my size on roadrunner.com for $89.98, join their club for $1.99 and get free shipping and 10% off. I wear them to do my 3 mile very hilly walk twice a week and really feel a difference, especially in my glutes. I also wear them to the gym on the elliptical and treadmill, treadmill is a little tricky if doing an incline and these will take some breaking in for that portion of my workout. All in all I like them and they are comfortable.

February 17, 2010 at 2:06 pm
(280) Carmellia says:

I just got the shoes and i am a 235lb girl and i think they are super easy to walk in. However I have wide feet and they do hurt my feet while doinf harder work out in the gym. Just hoping I have to get the “new shoe” out of them and they will be more confortable

(281) Amanda says:

I recently received a pair of the Reebok Run Tone shoes for Valentine’s Day and I absolutely love them. I also suffer from RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) and these shoes seem to help with the pain and achy ness of my legs at night. I am also a nurse which means I am constantly on my feet and these shoes are by far the best shoes that I have bought. I am looking at buying another pair because I love them so much. Can’t wait to see what the outcome is from wearing these shoes….

February 19, 2010 at 5:41 pm
(282) Jeannie says:

I bought a pair of MBT’s and HATE them! I’ve been wanting to try the reebok easy tones. From the look of the comments, I will have to try them.
Thank you for this line of discussion :)

(283) Elaine says:

I purchased the easy tone shoes and instantly fell in love with them. Ihave been power walking for some time now and tried on these shoes to see if they measured up to all the hype. Guess what, not only do they measure up, but I purchased a second pair to have in case the other wears out!!! It is well worth the money to have comfortable, functioning, exercise shoes that really work. Not only do they feel good, but they look good as well. My legs, butt and abs have toned up beautifully since I have been wearing the easy tones. I could go on and on, but get a pair and try for yourself. You will not be disappointed!!!!

February 20, 2010 at 6:39 pm
(284) Mare says:

I got these shoes for Christmas in the usual sneaker size I wear but my heels would slide out when I walked with them…so I exchanged them for a smaller size and had the same problem. I feel like the heel part of the shoe is too shallow so my heels keep sliding out. When I worked out with them the front of my feet became numb and I ended up with blisters on my heels. I wouldn’t buy them again.

(286) Evelyn says:

I actually opted to spend the extra $20 and design a custom pair online. I am a personal trainer and run a bootcamp with 30 people which involves paved trail walking and bootcamp stations. I have to say I feel a big difference in lower body muscle exhaustion after wearing these for the bootcamp. My legs have that deep ache like I used to get after a long run. I had knee surgery 4 months ago and was told no running this year, so I got the shoes. I feel like they are working my legs more and I am really happy with them. I recommend them to enhance a walking workout, but not to replace one!

February 22, 2010 at 1:23 pm
(287) Kathy says:

I bought these shoes in November for $100. I am a cashier and I stand in one spot for several hours at one time. I lean forward some and need the pad under my foot for comfort. It works but to walk in the shoes are not smooth. Like..heel…toe! roll. these won’t. they “clop”. missing the roll… heel..roll..toe! it heel..clop.
I’m trying to describe it the best I can. Will I buy them again…NO.

February 24, 2010 at 9:17 am
(288) Stephanie_H says:

I have THREE pairs of these fantastic shoes! Bought my first pair in November, though skeptical, wore them for four hours and my legs REALLY felt it the next day. I have lost 2.5 inches in my thighs since November! The have played a huge role in getting me fit & back into the gym. Normally, I hate wearing shoes, but these are so comfortable that I hate to take them off. They work!

What about the Curves® for Women Toning Trainer Shoes, Vs. Shape ups and these reebox shoes? I have found the curves for $39.99.. vs. $120 and $100. Any comments.

(290) Krista says:

i read some information on these from the people at reebok themselves and they say that the models that are currently produced are not designed to be worn while working out… they are designed to work your muscles during everyday activities. i am itching to buy a pair but i am also worried about the effect the bvalance ball technology will have on my fairly weak ankles.

February 26, 2010 at 12:08 pm
(291) Jaime says:

I am a nurse doing alot of walking, I am in shape and work out a few days a week. I bought these shoes mid december thinking why not wear these while I work and even on my days off just to run around. I thought they were great at first, but after a few weeks my knees started to kill me, really achy. So I stopped wearing the shoes for almost 3.5 weaks and my knees went back to feeling fine, but since I paid so much for the shoes and I decided to try and wear them again, (thinking/hoping they weren’t the cause of the knee pain) but they are. My sister inlaw has them too,(a hair stylist), she says they kill her feet. Both of us hate not to wear them due to the cost. They do help shape your legs but they cause you to walk a little funny, with the front portion of the foot almost flopping down like a clown at times, and forget it if you try to run they hurt your hips. I would not buy them again, they are not natural feeling.

I bought a pair if rebok easy tone a couple of days ago and they SLIDE up and down on my heal. Bought a size 8 because that’s the size I have wore for years! Guess I wasted $107.00. Shoe Carnival who not exchange them!

(293) Cherie says:

I bought my pair about 6 months ago, I love them!!! I have noticed a change in my calves, hamstrings and butt. I wear them Monday-Friday for work. I will be purchasing a second pair in a different color. Prior to purchasing the Easytone’s. I use to have lower back pains from standing for 8 hours a day. I have not had back pains in 6 months. I highly recommend these wonderful shoes!!

March 2, 2010 at 2:21 am
(294) Lisa says:

I have never spent $100.00 on shoes, but I’m glad I did. I’m not sure if they are toning and lifting, but my back feels great!!! I have never owned a more comfortable shoe. My feet do not ache at the end of the day and it feels like I’m floating on air. Now the only problem I do have is the fact there is no grip when it comes to water. I almost slipped and cracked my head open when I walked in out of the rain. If you want a comfortable shoe I recommend this one!!!!!

March 2, 2010 at 10:26 am
(295) Virginia says:

I am a walker and I love my Easytones. They are perfect for getting more bang our of your walking. After having them on for 5 minutes, I feel the burn in my legs, butt and oddly – thighs! Now, I wouldn’t play sports in them, but again, perfect for a lady who walks her dogs around her neighborhood, or walks track/treadmill at the Y!

(299) Bert says:

“Bought the shoes two weeks ago, and I have been very disappointed…I have worn Reeboks DMX (usually paid 100 to 120) for 10-15 years. I used to have problems with heels spurs, and since wearing the Reeboks my problems were solved until I got the easy tones… After wearing them I have, sore spots on my the pads of my feet and heels where the cushion on the bottom of the shoe press on my foot. Like pressure points…I had to stop wearing them and find by orthopedic inserts, that I haven’t used for over 15 years.and start using them again to relieve the pain.

(301) JL says:

Having sustained an unanticipated fall, I wrenched my left ankle–badly! Being an avid bicycle rider and one who exercised three times/week didn’t prepare me for the pain and aggrevation re. to rehabilitation. Learned that my ankles weren’t very flexible. Would caution everyone out there to be checked out first by a Physical Therapist for ankle stability and flexibility before paying good money to purchase a shoe that would circumvent traditional exercises. (Physical Therapists will also recommend what exercises you can do at home to ensure ankle flexibility and overall body balance.) Once you damage one of the several areas contributing to stability, it becomes easier for you to do it again. So, unless you want to use a cane or walker before your “time,” exercise caution before purchasing shoes that throw off your stability and balance. Learn by my misfortune, not by personal experience.

(304) Dawn says:

After reading all of the comments, I just had to share. While comfortable, the toning part is a big joke. I have worn them since Jan 25th, on the treadmill, all day at work, and just for fun. I never once experienced any toning feeling in my calves or glutes and do not see any difference at all.

I just got a new job as a CNA at a nursing home. I hardly have time to work out because I am working full time and going to nursing school full time. I do like to work out when I get the chance but I got really excited about the easytone shoes, so I just bought them last night! I am super excited to see what they’ll do! I got nervous because I read Joanne’s comment that she didn’t want to wear them to work again because they are worse for when you’re working, so I’ll have to see! I just hope they do what they say, and my legs and butt will be more toned!

(308) specialtysports says:

Bought the Sketchers in the all black work shoe style which has a small non-slip type tread. Chose this brand because they are offered in extra-wide.

It took about 3-4 hrs to adjust my stride to achieve a smooth walking gait. Have worn them for 2 full 8-hr shifts pretty much on my feet the whole time. Experienced no adverse reactions, but I didn’t experience any noticeable good reaction either other than comfort. They are extremely comfortable on the concrete floors of my workplace. They do seem to be about twice as heavy as a normal pair of shoes of the same size. Perhaps that is why some people experience negative reactions.

My opinion is that this style of shoe is for walking only. It is not a running or even a cross-training shoe.

March 16, 2010 at 12:18 pm
(309) Melissa says:

I love the shoes and for those who don’t mind paying an extra $10.00 (I know they are already pricey) you can design your own shoe online and they have awesome color selections. Mine are pink, yellow and white.

Hi all~

I brought the Reebok about 10 days ago, they are comfortable and the price dose not bother me. But I also have 2 pairs of MBT’s and 2 pairs of Chung Shi; I have to say that I prefer my Chung Shi’s. The Reebok is comfortable and I am sure that to some extent they help tone. But they don’t do anything for pain or posture and the sizing is off. I wear a 61/2 and had to to get a 71/2 and they seem to fit okay but after 10 days of wear they seem to be sliding on my feet.

March 21, 2010 at 2:40 am
(311) wanda says:

I brought a pair and felt tightness all over but 2 months later, with an average use of 3x per weeks they begin to wear out and I contacted the company with no avail. its 4 months later now and the bumps on the bottom and almost gone and I can’t remember the last time I have actually felt the show working on my muscels. I contacted the company twice and they ignored my request to replace my shoes; after all, the reviews I read said the tennis did not wear out. That was one of the determining factors in my decision to pay 100.00 and then, only after 2 months there was a significant difference in the soles and their effect on my muscles. I thought the company would stand behind their product.

March 21, 2010 at 3:45 pm
(312) Lynn says:

I don’t have a pair, but I’ve seen a couple of women with the Skechers Shape-ups. They look funny and make a “clunking” sound as the women walk.

March 22, 2010 at 2:26 pm
(313) Brian says:

Neither the Reebok nor the Sketchers are anything like MBT. MBT is an approved medical device, which has numerous medical studies to support their claims. Sketchers have nowhere near the same support, and may break down within a few short months. The Easytone is a good shoe, but again, does not have the qualities of the MBT product.

I bought the shoes and I love them. I don´t know if they´ll really help shed pounds but for women my age, 60 plus, with arthritic toes, they´re a god sent. My orthopedic doctor things the same.
The shoes cushion the impact of walking and your toes barely touch the ground. I have arthritis in both my big toes and walking is very painful. In these shoes, I don´t have any pain at all.

I bought a pair of the Reebok Easytone runners for the gym and I absolutely love them I have a really bad knee and it felt so nice not to have any pain when walking and so I went back and bought a second pair for everyday use.

(319) Jleger says:

The shoes are great – for the first 2 months. I could feel a difference in my legs and rear. I walk between 2 and 5 miles every day with my dog and these shoes helped me drop 2 pant sizes in 3 months. Now that the shoes are 3 months old, however, the bottoms are completely worn down and there is a hole in the top!! VERY DISAPPOINTED considering I had to “beg” my husband to let me spend the $$ on them, assuring him they would be a great investment. I have other “regular” walking sneakers that I have had for almost 2 years (New Balance). I definitely did not expect these shoes to wear out so fast.

March 28, 2010 at 4:54 pm
(320) Lynn Cardwell says:

I wore MBT trainers for months and loved them. One Saturday in October 06, while out walking the dog jn country lanes, I stepped down off a grassy bank, the right foot moved a bit to the side, and in a nano-second broke the ankle! A trimalleolar fracture. The months of walking in MBT had strengthened muscle attachment to bones resulting in a stress fracture. I’ll still wear them, but will be very careful in future.

(321) lyndsey says:

I bought a pair about a month ago! LOVE THEM! I wore them while vacationing in San Francisco, and walking the hills in these shoes was a WORKOUT! :) They are the most comfy shoe I own, feels like walking on pillows!

I have lower back problems, but I have had much LESS PAIN since I started wearing these! (Not to mention they are much cuter than the Skechers!)

HOWEVER- DO NOT HIKE IN THESE! Big mistake… I felt like I was hiking in heels almost, and I am very lucky to have not hurt myself!

March 31, 2010 at 2:38 pm
(322) lee says:

I think these are an awesome shoes. I laugh that ppl think they are outrageously priced. You must be American because when I shopped there I found New Balance running shoes for $30 that $110 in Canada. Here $100-180 for a decent shoe is normal.

(323) Denise says:

I bought the Reebok Toning shoe and I initially liked them. My legs were sore after a long walk. However, the stability balls went completely flat after three months, and the rubber sole began to disappear. I was left with an ugly looking flat shoe. Lady’s FootLocker gave me my money back but I will not be buying another pair. They simply don’t hold up.

I just bought my Easytone shoes and went for a long walk, I love them! I have heel spurs and plantar fasciitis from working on my feet for years as well as arthritis in my hips and knees from sports. I had no joint pain but my muscles sure felt it, I love walking and getting a great workout at the same time makes them worth the money. I am thinking of getting the sandals for the summer.

(326) Ana says:

About three days ago I purchased these shoes, and let me tell you that they work! I’ve been pretty skeptical about buying them since they cost around $120 and didn’t want to spend the money foolishly. It was worth every penny. I’m a mother of two, full-time employee, and full-time student and don’t have time to work out and with just one day of normal walking, I feel the soreness in my glutes, thighs and calves. My goodness, I feel like as if I had gone to the gym for an intense workout. I will be wearing these to the mall and thereafter whenever I can because this is absolutely worth it.

April 3, 2010 at 7:23 pm
(327) alDPM says:

I have to comment on the people that have ankle instability or weak ankles…I would recommend against purchasing the reebok easy tone shoes because ankle instability is do to weak ligaments on the outside of your ankle and the instability that is provided by the shoe will most likely advance your condition. MBT vs Reebok easy tone the short answer is that the MBTs are developed to stabilize your heel to toe motion and to provide off weighting due to the rocker bottom sole. This would help with people diagnosed with metatarsalgia or arthritis of the forefoot. The easy tone take the pressure off the feet by having an unstable sole and allow your muscles to work overtime hence strengthening your muscles. These two shoes function differently and should not be substituted for each other. If you have ankle, knee, or hip issues I would recommend against the easy tone.

April 5, 2010 at 1:21 pm
(328) Kim says:

As of April 1, 2010: Lady Footlocker sells both the Easytone (for walking) and the Reetone (for running) for $99. They are the cheapest price anywhere. You can check them out on their website too.

April 5, 2010 at 1:25 pm
(329) Kim says:

Also, you MUST try the shoes on first. I usually wear a 9 but since Reebok like many other brands they run narrow and small in size. I had to purchase a 10 to make sure my feet did not feel tight. After walking in a narrow than normal shoe you WILL feel pinching or numbness in the toes and ball of your foot. AGAIN, YOU MUST TRY THE SHOES ON AND WALK IN THEM FIRST.

April 5, 2010 at 9:06 pm
(330) chris says:

(332) Nadia says:

I wore them on the elliptical the first day then to work for about 7 hours…the next day i felt intense back pain and it lasted for weeks…no soreness in my legs at all but when your leg muscles tighten, they pull on your back…a physical therapist told me these shoes throw off your body’s sense of balance…it feels horrible still…

April 6, 2010 at 8:19 pm
(333) Jola says:

It’s funny how some are saying you need a bigger size – i normally wear 9 , but when i tried them on i needed 8.5. Maybe because my feet are narrow.
Shoes felt really nice. I will buy them.
Does anyone knows where i can buy EasyTone Go Outside BLACK WITH BLUE in Canada? or even in US if they ship to Canada.

(334) Pam says:

I have been an avid walker for years ( 5-6 miles a day). I bought a pair of easytones about a month ago. They are very comfortable at first, but after walking in them for a while, my third toe on the right foot goes numb and hurts so bad I have to take off the shoe and bend my toes to relieve the pain.

April 6, 2010 at 10:57 pm
(335) ljliving says:

These shoes are not meant to be used in the gym or while jogging. They’re just an extra boost. I plan on getting a pair, although I haven’t decided on the brand, but just for normal everyday things like grocery shopping.

There is no replacement for exercise no matter how much we want one.

i just got these shoes as a gift… after reading so much negative stuff about them i cant help but to have a few questions of my own.. after they deflate for what ever reason.. does that mean i cant EVER EVER wear them again?? and if i bought them from a retail store and not reebok.com does that mean i get no refund??

I had a pair of these custom made for my fiancée. She has had nothing but praise for these shoes. From the first day, she said that they are the most comfortable shoes she’s ever owned.

I can’t wait until Reebok allows men to customize them as well.

My usual route is about 2 miles long before I got my easytones. Now that I have my easytones I am walking half that and feeling better results. I do workout dvds in my easytones. I go shopping in them. I had a difficult time finding them in stores so I finally just custome ordered mine online. They are very true to size in my opinion. I wear between a 8.5 and a 9 in sketchers brand shoes and a 9 in most other walking shoes. I ordered a size 9 for my easytones and am very satisfied. I feel the workout in 4 main places: the bottom of the glutes where the glutes meet the back of the leg, the front of my thighs, my calves, and my shins. I have also noticed a visual improvement in the appearance of the back of the knee area. Also, I have sprinted in them when I got caught walking and it started to rain. My advice if you are interested in running in them is to run a little at a time until you adjust to them. I consider myself to have weak-ish ankles that turn easily in other running shoes. I have not had any problems in the easytones with my ankles at all. I am so happy with them!

I have worn my Reebock Easytone sneakers to work and I’ve tried them walking. I walk 3-5 miles 3 or more times a week. When I first walked in my Easytones I noticed my right foot going numb every time. Now I have gone back to my old walking shoes and my right foot still goes numb. I’m wondering if the Reebocks might have pinched a nerve in my foot. I’ve walked for years and never had this problem. Has anyone else noticed numbness when walking in the Easytones???

(342) Mary Edwards says:

These shoes are awesome! I bought a pair 3 weeks ago and I could feel a difference the first day and I can see a difference in my legs and butt. They make you stand up straight and you can feel muscles you don’t usually feel while walking. I also have a bulging disc in my back and they have helped my back pain by forcing me to stand straight and strengthen my lower back for added support. I already ordered the ones designed for running.

These sneakers r the best investment iv made in a while as far as a shoe is concerned u feel it when you take them off and u actually see results

(344) Jaime says:

I’ve been thinking about buying a pair of Easy Tones for awhile and after reading reviews on here I decided to buy a pair. The first day I took a long walk and wore them all day as I ran errands. The second and third day I wore them to work where I am on my feet all day. I read reviews that said that I should have sore legs from all the muscles being worked but that never happened. I’m wondering if they are working. I’m bummed that I haven’t experienced that with the shoes. I’m going to continue wearing them and see if my legs get toned up. Has anyone else noticed no sore legs wearing them?

April 15, 2010 at 10:29 am
(345) Shan says:

I just bought a pair of these, and while they felt very comfortable in the store once I started using them I do not feel the same way. After walking in these for about 10 minutes there is an immense amount of pressure on the balls of my feet and it is very uncomfortable. Almost a bruising sensation. It could be that I have an incredibly high arch, but I would not recommend these to anyone if they asked my opinion.

April 15, 2010 at 10:35 am
(346) Shan says:

I also wanted to reiterate a comment I have see posted several times, my toes also go numb.

Reebok EasyTone shoes are only 85 dollars at Sears.

(348) Jackie says:

Everyone is sold but I wore my easytones for a few days and became surprised that I developed nagging ITBS pain in my left knee, even though I had been taking it easy on vacation and running less. The shoes are the circumstantial culprit to me and I question if all that glitters is indeed not gold.
User beware.

Can anyone tell me what is the difference in the Reebok easytone and the Reebok simplytone? They both claim to tone key leg muscles.

Just bought the EasyRun – SO MUCH BETTER than EasyTone, as it has more stability pods. Good for walking/running/treadmill, whatever. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT

April 16, 2010 at 9:52 pm
(351) Dee says:

I bought my Easytones about 5 months ago and have loved the comfort and the way they enhance my daily 3 1/2 mile walk. Disappointingly, now that I’ve worn them quite a bit, the very thin rubber layer over the balance ball “bladder” has rubber away. The bladder has therefore lost its inflation and. I’d guess, it’s effectiveness; an added issue is an obnoxious sound with every step. For $115, I expected to get a lot more wear out of these. If they figure out this design flaw, I’d happily buy them again though.

April 16, 2010 at 11:46 pm
(352) KLF says:

I wasn’t sure about purchasing these myself but I decided to go ahead & throw it on my Christmas list anyway. I work in medical & need white sneakers-on my feet all day so I decided..what he heck! I liked the way they felt from the beginning…very “jumpy” and comfortable. I can’t say I noticed a change in my legs tone or feel but I figured it had to be doing something. I started running in them however…not a good idea! I run 3 miles a day outside & I believe these are what gave me my shin splints-I have been out of running commission for a week now. I think they are good for everyday walking around-but when it comes to working out I would purchase a sneaker made for that area.

April 17, 2010 at 1:47 pm
(353) Bri says:

I have the Reebok EasyTones. I’ve been using them for a full week now and LOVE them!!!!!

The first day I started feeling them work my calves, hamstrings, and butt.
I am somewhat an athlete but wanted to step it up a bit. I needed new runners anyway, so I got the EasyTones. You’re going to run into $109.99 + tax for ANY good runner, so I figured, why not!

I chose the walking shoe instead of the one for running because I also wear them all day at work, doing my regular thing. I’ll be getting the Reebok Reetones soon enough though.

Comfortable? Hell yes!!!! Way more comfortable than my Saucony running shoes. And 4 years ago when I bought those, they were maybe only ten dollars cheaper.

So, I DEFINITELY recommend these shoes if you need that extra help. However, do NOT rely on the shoes to do all the work for you. You still need to do your regular work out. These just give you an extra boost.

:)

April 18, 2010 at 2:23 am
(354) Karolyn says:

All of these comments make me laugh. I don’t own these shoes, but I am planning on purchasing them tomorrow so I really have no opinion on them yet. But let’s think about some of these comments for a moment-

Lateral movements- Ladies, would any of you do a work out with lateral movements wearing a pair of heels? I doubt you would unless you were planning on spraining or breaking an ankle. Same concept here, these shoes (from what I’ve read) are made for walking, not a Zumba class or tennis.

I can understand that it would be fairly disappointing for a pair of shoes to be worn out after just two months, but walking shoes are not meant to be worn for a year. I don’t care if they are from Walmart or if they are Nikes or Brooks best pair of walking shoes. Running shoes need to be replaced even more often. I worked at Dick’s Sporting Goods for four years, trust me when I say it’s not just the Reeboks that will “pop” like that. Nike has a line of shoes (Air Max) that have air bubbles as well, those pop just as easily.

I think a lot of people were just expecting these shoes to be a cure all, and they aren’t going to be. I am interested in them only because I am on my feet about 50% of my work day and I figure I can add to my work outs when I’m not actually working out, not replace them all together. And if they don’t work, as long as they are comfortable then I’ll be happy.

And finally, I don’t know where everyone is from. I personally live in the United States and here (and I’m sure in most other countries) there is a law against false advertising. If Reebok couldn’t prove that these shoes do what they are advertising that they do for a MAJORITY of people (not all) then they would be dealing with a HUGE lawsuit. If your feet aren’t healthy to begin with you can’t expect them to all of a sudden cure you of all your ailments. If they do, that’s great. But I think people are putting too much faith into a pair of sneakers when really they probably need a doctor.

In the end I think everyone should just go into a purchase like this open minded. If every person out there could wear the same shoe then the shoe companies wouldn’t be making any money.(And the world would be very boring because we would all be wearing the same shoes) Don’t give up on Reebok just because this shoe didn’t work for you.

April 18, 2010 at 11:20 am
(355) Curious813 says:

If you are working out, then why do you need the shoe. It is not to replace a workout, but to enhance it? Think about that for a minute. This seems like a gimmick, like roll-over minutes.

April 18, 2010 at 4:23 pm
(356) Kelsey says:

I have a pair that I got for Christmas. I LOVE THEM! They really do work. I lost over 20lbs in the first couple months. I didn’t even wear them to work out in just as normal shoes. I have noticed a difference in my legs and butt.

April 18, 2010 at 6:32 pm
(357) Natalie says:

Please keep in mind these shoes are not to be used to work out in or to run in.. they are walking shoes!! They have a different version of EasyTone that are running shoes. I think you really all need to do your homework before buying these shoes. Ask the sales rep at the store you are purchasing them from for more details.

April 19, 2010 at 12:31 am
(358) Crystal says:

I have purchased reebok easytone breast cancer ones in march 2010 and i am just walking in them like a normal person would walk twice daily and than work. They are already deflating and can’ return for the money i paid for them or even exchange them from sportscheck in Timmins ontario. I also found that my toes did go numb but they do work out my calves and butt. I just personally think they should design them better to last a little while longer.

April 19, 2010 at 12:35 pm
(359) Kristin says:

I love my new shoes! They are very comfortable! The only thing is that they hurt the bottom of my heel after so long of exercising that I need to rest; but maybe that’s just me? It almost feels like you’re walking in sand. But they are good shoes at a reasonable price… especially given the fact that every step you take in them is helping!

(360) Emily Thurn says:

Just an FYI for those who think that MBTs are really expensive, I managed to find MBTs for $125 & I like them :-) . I really don’t buy into the hype of shoes that make you workout (more) while walking, however, other nurses on my floor liked them so I bought a pair. The morning after I wore the MBTs for a 12 hr shift, a lot of muscles that are usually not sore after a shift were pretty sore. Would I buy these Reebok shoes? Nope, not a big fan of the shoes…never have been.

April 19, 2010 at 4:00 pm
(361) Linda says:

I have to agree with Megan….I find the ad offensive. Continued shots of womens butts…does not make me want to rush out and buy this product. Also, if its not in your “genes” ladies, shoes are not going to help…

April 19, 2010 at 9:58 pm
(362) Pat says:

I have had these shoes for a couple of weeks now — walking is great — however when I workout on the treadmill, the bottom of my feet feel like they are on fire. So basically I now only use them for walking — and a bit overpriced for a walking shoe. I am going back to the shoes I had before for exercising.

April 20, 2010 at 2:53 am
(363) Easytone Trainers says:

Sketchers sell a cheaper version of these now… I suspect they will fare better with younger consumers – while the Reeboks will interest people who are more serious about fitness.

(364) Deana says:

I absolutely love these shoes. I got them at the beginning of the year. Lucky I got them when I did, they were the last pair that werent size 5 or 11 in the Kansas City metro area. A coworker asked me where I got mine and she said she has not been able to locate them in a store. Before I got these shoes, my feet would be so sore at the end of the day (I am a pharmacy technician so I do a lot of walking and am on my feet all day). The first day I wore these at work, my feet were in heaven! Four months later and these shoes have held up very well and I might add that my legs and glutes are a bit shapelier!! Very much worth the money!

April 21, 2010 at 12:40 am
(365) ann says:

I am debating whether to buy a pair of Reebok Easy Toners or a pair of Skechers Shape Ups. The Skechers state that you can lose weight, improve posture and activate core muscles. I am curious to know someone who has tried Skechers so I can compare.
Thanks
betty

April 21, 2010 at 3:23 pm
(366) Heather says:

I prefer Skechers Shape Ups over Reebok Easy Tones. I definitely feel that I have more energy in the Skechers and they are overall a more comfortable shoe. The Reebok Easytones looked great on TV but I find them disappointing. The Easytones are a bit narrow and do not provide much support.

April 21, 2010 at 7:25 pm
(367) leslie says:

From what I understand, Reebok easytones help your rear end, and sketchers work on your back leg muscles. Its in the design of to bottom of the shoe. Reeboks have the ball type bottoms and Sketchers have the angeled heals.

(369) Jacky Rod says:

My husband got me these shoes to go with my regular workout routine at the gym, I also wear them at work because I walk a lot there. I can feel it in my back thighs and calves! They are slippery on floors though. They are fine on ground and the tread mill. I’ve worn them almost everyday since dec 2009, it’s now April 2010, I didn’t loose any weight by wearing them but they do work your legs out a bit.

(370) Lisa says:

I currently been wearing Skechers Shapeups for a whole month when walking at the park for 30 mins a day…and i have lost few pounds and feel tone but i dont believe its the shoes or any other tone up shoes…I change my eating habits and use walking as my workout…I believe they made these shoes to motivate us to walk…obviously walking is going to have some kind of positive results if you are consistent…I now think that maybe I shouldnt have spend much on the shoes..lol but hey it pushed me to go out there and walk…

April 22, 2010 at 5:33 pm
(371) Allie says:

I wonder if the models in the commercial got into the shape they are in from wearing these shoes. Ha!
Go ask anyone on the street who is in great shape if they got that way from wearing these shoes.
Working out and eating well will get you in shape guaranteed. A shoe will not.

I am a manager at a restaunt and I work 10hr days, I’ve worn these for 3 days and man are my legs sore!! In a good way though, they are super comfortable to wear all day!! My only complaint is that they are not slip resistant, which i knew going into it so that is my fault. I like them so far!

Ok so I have been wanting the Reebok Easy Tones, just havn’t been able to find them anywhere? Anyway I know a lot of people who wear the Sketcher’s Shape Ups and love/swear by them. The Reebok shoes obviously look better and well less dorky. Both are around the same price.

So which actually work better? I’m leaning towards the Reebok’s but I just want to get whatever is gonna help tone while I’m walking/exercising.

REEBOK VS. SKETCHERS????

(377) Tammy says:

You can purchase these Reebok at Kohls for 84.99 normal price and catch them on sale for 74.99. Just bought mine a few days ago and bought the white ones. I absolutly love them and they seem to take away back pain.

April 25, 2010 at 9:19 pm
(378) Gordon says:

Ugh, the exercise and fashion industries continue to give women terrible, inaccurate ideas about exercise and fitness. Makes me angry. Save your money.

I’m not trying to sell you anything; I have done my own research on what works best with the least commitment of time & money.

At least take this away from my comment, as rest assured that it is the truth and not marketing baloney: fitness is a biological response to stress. Minor stresses that are well within your body’s ability to cope with (like walking on sand or in awkward shoes) do not stimulate your body to become fitter.

For your body to increase its fitness and muscle-tone requires biological resources (food), so naturally it will be reluctant to do so unless a stress is perceived to be great enough that it threatens survival. Walking is very, very easy, so merely making walking a few percent more difficult is not going to achieve anything. At all. Walking up a flight of steps every day would probably achieve more.

If you want a good butt you need to do squats, or other weight exercises, same as men do in the gym. You won’t get a huge manly body from doing heavy exercise unless you are on steroids. Simple. My article that I linked to tells you how to do it at home, without any equipment.

April 25, 2010 at 10:45 pm
(379) me says:

I purchased the easytone shoes this past week because I was doing a fundraiser event that required me to be on my feet for long periods of time … so I wore them for 16 hours one day .. on my feet the entire time .. and 14 hours the next day.. again .. on my feet the entire time .. I found them to be extremely comfortable, I had no pain in my feet at all .. and considering there was no “break in” time .. I was completely amazed and grateful !!!

(380) JK says:

I WALK IN MY REEBOK EASYTONE 3MILE FOR THE MARCH OF DIMES THEY WERE THE BEST BUT I HAD TO BROKE MY IN FIRST SO BEFORE YOU START WEARING THEM YOU MUST BROKE THEM IN FIRST LIKE ANY OTHER SHOES BUT I HAVE SEEN A DIFFERENT IN MY BACK AREA IN LEGS

April 26, 2010 at 12:00 pm
(381) LSM says:

I just got mine a couple of days ago, so I don’t know about the toning benefits yet, but I can say that they are horribly uncomfortable to me. They are the right size but they don’t fit my foot properly at all. That said, I do feel like I’m working a little harder when I walk. In response to the condescending comment left a few days ago on the woes of the fashion and fitness industry, consumers do need to know that these can’t really be used as a substitute for a regular fitness routine. I have mine to enhance my regular workouts and for when I’m just walking around to go to the grocery store, around the house, or for a quick after dinner stroll around the block. On the other hand, my mother who is very heavy, in her sixties, and has been told not to exercise by some idiot orthopedist who wants to tear open her knees and give her new ones, could use these to move slowly towards a more active lifestyle. At some point, ANY improvement is better than none. If you are normally sedentary and these shoes inspire you to get up and walk for a few minutes a day, then you are improving your fitness. You’re not going to be running any marathons or suddenly look like the girl in the commercials, but you will be doing something good for yourself. Condescending attitudes from the fitness industry can be just as damaging as marketing that raises too many hopes.

(382) Diane says:

I bought a pair of these and after wearing them twice for my 4 mile walk my left shoe the pods on the bottom went flat and now the bubble goes inward and will not pop back out. I am assuming now these must have air in the pods. They are very comfortable and I could feel the difference. I will return these to the store I purchased them and get a new pair.

April 27, 2010 at 10:15 am
(383) Deanna says:

I just watched a review on Youtube about these sneakers. The woman said you could definitely feel a bit more restraints when going up steps than with regular sneakers so she does believe they will work you out, however, she commented on how ugly they are. And for that amount of $$, I would wait until they go down in price. They are a lot shinier in person from what I saw at the store and they don’t have any kind of arch on them so they are straight all across the bottom. Definitely futuristic looking. I will try them, but like others said, not for $99-$119. I’ll wait until they are $80 or lower.

April 27, 2010 at 11:08 am
(384) Ursula says:

I bought some last november in the us. Walking like them is quite comfy and I was curious to see, if I felt any effect. The only thing I ended up with was not nicer legs but some pretty bad pains in my lower back, each time I use them for a couple of days. Anyone experiencing the same? Honestly, I’m not too keen on wearing them again.

The best 100 bucks I ever spent.

I live in the Uk and purchased Reebok easytones 3 days ago (for £65). I walk 5 miles a day with my dog and thought these would benefit me. I must say after only 3 days, I have noticed that the muscles at the top of my thighs are feeling tight, as are the muscles above my knees. So they must be doing something.

I purchased the Reebok Simply Tone from Kohl’s for 1/2 the price with discounts and a coupon. The Simply Tone were much more comfortable and the size fit much better than the Easy Tone. Reebok Customer Service 800 number is very helpful too if you have questions.

They were a great shoe while they lasted… I had my shoes for ONLY 2 months and loved them, however recently I started getting really bad back pains and noticed that one of the balls in the shoe deflated, so now the shoes are off balanced and I believe were the cause of my back pain. The $100 I paid for them the first time was worth it.. had they lasted longer than 2 months. I’m not impressed with how short they lasted.

May 2, 2010 at 3:48 pm
(401) Gordon says:

LSM, there was nothing condescending about my comment on the exercise & fitness industries AT ALL – you are just being defensive because you bought a pair and resent anyone implying that you were mistaken.

You say that you’ve only had them a couple of days and are unsure whether you can detect any toning benefit yet. Even if you were exercising flat out like an athlete, visible differences take months to appear, not days.

The exercise and fitness industries deceive men as well as women. For example, they sell men over-the-top multi-blade vibrating razors and expensive bodybuilding protein supplements (when a simple beefburger or packet of nuts would do). They sell men and women exercise and diet regimes that are needlessly complicated and inefficient. They are always trying to find a new sensational product that will seem revolutionary but in fact is either a useless gimmick or a rehash of old ideas. There is little continuous commercial turnover in properly educating and equipping people and then letting them get on with it.

Getting fit is simple, but you have to work hard – period. If you want to use these trainers to make a workout a bit harder, fine; I doubt the efficacy but why the hell not.

I just don’t see what your beef is LSM – I mean, they DO ADVERTISE THE THINGS AS A WAY TO GET FIT JUST WALKING AROUND; I don’t think I imagined that – it’s definitely implied in the ads. I’m just trying to give good information here, I mean jeez, are you a rep for Reebok or something!? What’s with the hate!?

A lot of you are complaining about the dumbest stuff.
There is NOTHING wrong with the commercial. At all. Get over it.

Also, if the ball is deflating, or popping in, did you ever think that maybe it’s the way you walk? If you walk on the insides or outsides of your feet, as opposed to flat, that’s more than likely going to happen.

It’s the same with any product. If you don’t use it properly, it probably won’t work.

(403) Beans says:

They are expensive but worth the cost! A friend of mine went with me to Famous Footwear when they were having their BOGO sale so we were each able to snag a pair for $75 each :) I’m curious if anyone has tried the Skecher shape ups???

(404) Alexandra says:

So i bought these shoes for $100 at my local Finish Line, and absolutely love them. Waiting tables on a concrete floor for over six hours a night has taken a toll on my feet which is why i turned to these shoes. Not only are they the most comfortable sneakers i’ve ever worn but they have shaped my butt completely! I have only had them from a month and already see a difference. I’m a strong supporter of these shoes and definitely say buy it! What great tennis shoes are you gonna find that are under $100 bucks and completely worth it? not many. Go for it get these shoes. i love them

I was wondering bout the reebok easy tones…i work in retail so 9 hrs a day 5 days a week im on my feet n walking across the shop. I dont have time for the gym as im a full time student too so any extra ‘toning’ while i work would be fab.
$100 seems alot to me but if they do work then theyd deff be worth it. over all do u think i shud give them a go or theyr not worth it?
i really cant decide!
thanksss

May 5, 2010 at 10:57 am
(406) Kamila says:

Ok, so after 6 months of wearing the shoes I can definitely say that there is much more muscle tone in my calf and my butt. I took before & after pictures (which I will not post) but there’s a noticeable difference in the shape of my butt. I will say that I do consider myself fit (exercise 4 days per week) and I added the walking in Easytone shoes to my regular exercise routine (3 miles 5x per week). My only con is that they get worn out quickly – wish I would have gotten the warranty w/ the shoes.

May 6, 2010 at 4:36 pm
(407) Alexandra says:

I bought these in JJB and really wish I hadnt. The first time i wore them, all was fine. But I wore once after it had been raining – constantly felt like I was going to slip over. Due to those balance balls, you cant feel if your foot is properly on the floor – which is how I badly injured my right foot/ankle. I wrenched my ankle so badly turning it over that its black and blue and swollen. This is purely because I couldnt tell that I hadnt properly put my foot down as I stepped off the curb. I really wouldnt recommend them myself. I attempted to return them to JJB explaining that I thought they were a little dangerous for injuries and not fit for purpose – but they didnt want to know :o ( So now I have brand new easytones which Im frightened to wear and an agonising foot!!!

(408) Suzie says:

I’ve been wearing Sketchers Shape Ups for about 5 months, I wear them while waitressing and they are extremely comfortable and help me with posture. They are great to wear while housecleaning or walking as well. After going for a walk in them I can definitely feel a difference. They help tone your leg muscles and butt, but don’t expect miracles ladies, you still need regular exercise as well, these are just an aid. I plan to get the Payless version of the Reeboks next, I’ll let you know how they feel.

May 8, 2010 at 10:35 pm
(409) InkyMom says:

I just bought these and have worn them just one day. I’m very active normally and didn’t think I’d notice that big of a difference but I really felt it in my legs! They’re easy to wear and I love that they don’t look like a big clunky shoe like the others. My coworkers all thought they were normal sneakers.

May 9, 2010 at 2:14 pm
(410) Alicia says:

I was wondering if I should get these shoes or not but after reading these comments I have a few questions. Some people have been talking about a version of these that you run in, where do you get those? Also, has anyone tried the Payless version of these?

May 9, 2010 at 7:25 pm
(411) Suzanne says:

I just bought the Payless version today, I’ll report on them after I’ve worn them a few days.

Just got my Reebok’s and I LOVE them. I have RSDS in my leg and foot and it is hard ot find shoes that are comfortable and give support. I have recently started walking and these help ease some of the constant pain I have. Very happy!!

May 12, 2010 at 9:23 am
(413) Sarah says:

I think there is a defect in the left Run Tone. I bought a pair and after 1 week the seam was slicing into the top of my foot. I went to exchange and tried on another pair and the same problem happened w/ the new pair, (left shoe only). Anyone else?

May 12, 2010 at 1:48 pm
(414) Jennifer says:

I will have to say that by going to the gym and using these shoes you do notice yourself firming up a little bit quicker than normal. wouldn’t say 28% but it is enough that if you are a dog walker or like to walk on the treadmill (never run in these things) that they are a good brand of shoes. I would definately tell people to give them a try before dismissing them.

May 13, 2010 at 12:53 am
(415) Lindsay says:

For those of you who weren’t happy with the color choices- if you log onto the Reebok website, and pay the extra $50, you can design your own!

(416) Gretchen says:

FitFlops never worked for me, and when they got wet they would leave nasty black marks on my feet. I’d try the Reeboks though, since they aren’t much more than the average workout shoe.

I PURCHASED THE EASYTONE SNEAKERS AND WHILE WALKING DOWN THE STAIRS IN THEM MY ANKLE ROLLED AND I BROKE MY RIGHT FIBULA AND SPRAINED THE ANKLE DO NOT WEAR THESE SHOES

(418) HenInLA says:

Just got a pair today at a Reebok outlet store. So far, all I know if they’re pretty comfortable but will know more over time. I saw a few posts asking where to get them–FYI, obviously they have them in their outlet stores ($99), and I’ve also seen lots on Amazon.com.
On the size, I’m an 8.5 usually, and that’s what I got for these so they seem true to size.

i just bought my easy tone shoes on sat and bought a new treadmill also… however,will these shoes cause any damage to the treadmill??? i dont think they would but i figured i would check anyways. Thanks!

(420) Bev says:

Okay, I bought these. I usually walk 1 1/2 miles per night , with no strain. I work these runners and by the end of the walk my butt, calves and thights wer tight and slightly sore. By the second time it was all I could do to finish my normal easy walk because it was strenuous and I was huffing and puffing. Already I can see a difference. For me they were worth the money and will be great for weight loss.

May 18, 2010 at 2:03 pm
(421) Karan says:

I have the Reebok Easytone shoes and enjoy them, they do feel as if my thighs have tightened up but I never measured before I began wearing them and after, they are a very comfortable fitting shoe.

(425) Mary says:

I love these!!!! There so comfortable come in wide sizes and make my legs feel spent at the end of the day(which normally is no the case). These do take time for your feet to get use to, yes I initially experienced some tingly sensation and had a few close calls with stairs. But I would endure the same breaking in for a hot pair of heels, so for me totally worth it. DO NOT RUN IN THESE!!! This is where the real chance of injury is, thats why there is the RUNTONE which is way more stable than these.

can anybody suggest me good shoes for treadmill…for gym actually….

May 25, 2010 at 12:55 am
(427) kay says:

I bought these shoes about a month ago. They are perfect for walking around or doing dance/cardio classes. However, I find them very slippery on dance floors when I do kickboxing and I occasionally lose circulation in my toes in them.

My legs feel a lot stronger when I work out in them but I’m not really seeing any results in my glutes.

Since they are not stability shoes I do suggest that people with stability issues do not wear them while running because you will risk ankle problems.

They are definitely better looking than all the other tone shoes!

May 25, 2010 at 12:20 pm
(428) Jackie says:

I just bought a pair that are gray with like spring green (if you are familiar with crayola crayon colors) for only 79.99 at reebok outlet store in gainesville texas. i love them and i think these are waaay cuter than the solid black or white ones…

May 25, 2010 at 4:17 pm
(429) Linda says:

I work at a retail store and work every hour of my shift on my feet. I bought the easytone reebok shoes 2 days ago and I love them. I feel like im walking on air. I havent seen any results yet since ive only used them twice so far.

May 26, 2010 at 11:31 am
(430) LKM says:

They do not feel like you are walking on sand. I bought 1st pair in Jan, the bottom for forfoot wore out in 21/2 mo, got blisters, they gave me another pair, blisters, 2 1/2 mo same thing wore out, I am on my 3rd pair now, in the blister phase. I walk 3 miles at lunch every day. Talking to retail CS supervisor and it is nuts, he says #1, I should not get blisters, (tell my feet that) and get this, I am walking too much!! These shoes are only warrantied for up to 500 miles. Talking to these people is like falling down the rabbit hole. They do work, but I also go to the gym (don’t wear at gym) He is seeing if he can get me a 2nd pair so I can rotate shoes, and they won’t wear out so fast. Have you ever heard of a pair of shoes being warrantied for mileage??? He also says they run small so I should be wearing a 1/2 size larger, not something I knew or they told me at the store.

May 26, 2010 at 1:59 pm
(431) susan j says:

Do not buy these unless you are walking in a gym or home. I bought a pair and loved them but about the fifth time I used them on my walk i notice they felt different and I was right. All four of the little balls are deflated and these are not made for people with narrow feet. I haven’t gotten past the blister stage on top of my feet!

May 26, 2010 at 6:53 pm
(432) Jsgurl says:

I bought these shoes about a month ago at a Reebok Outlet Store and only paid $79. I love them, and can tell a huge difference. I’m 33 and had a flat bottom my whole life, not anymore! My bottom has rounded out and looks fabulous. Do beware though.. They are super comfortable and you will find yourself wearing them all the time. You really do need to wear them 2or 3 days then switch back to regular shoes for a couple days. If not, you will be overly sore. I am just now getting to where I can wear them constantly.

Got the Run Tones and after running in them for a month it triggered bursitis in my right hip. Doctor gave me a cortisol injection and told me to NEVER WEAR THOSE SHOES AGAIN. I’d like to be on a mialing list if there’s ever a class action suit brought against Reebock.

I got these shoes hoping that it would tone my butt. Well it did but now my butt is huge and I don’t like it. I can barely fit into my jeans anymore be ause the upper part of my but is very built up. Don’t get these shoes. I have to hire a personal trainer just to make my butt look good again. I have a black butt( it’s very big) and I’m not even African american. Save yourself don’t get these shoes

June 2, 2010 at 2:36 pm
(437) anita says:

Well i have commented on here twice regarding these shoes, from day 1 when i got the shoes and an update and now i am writing to let you ladies know that i returned the shoes after 2 weeks of having them, the 1st couples days my feet were soooo sore, numbness was occuring and soo unconfortable to run in and walk . i gave it a few days thught maybe it would go away consedering they were new shoes but nope after two weeks i had enough and return them why spend so much on a shoe that just causes pain, so i returned them and got myself some REAL confy NIKE running shoes and they are nicer lookin than the reebos no worth of a lie! and they were just $5.00 more than the reeboks but now i can run, jog and walk confortably and actualyl enjoy my work out and not be complaining about my feet! im a 25 year old fit female and working out is my passion and these shoes have been by far the worse shoes ive ever spend my money on definately not worth it! do not buy! trust me ladies! save ur money and get yourself a real pair of shoes! no shoes will tone ur legs, butt thats alllll bullcrap and all in ur head! if u want to tone those areas WORK OUT! dont depend on ridicilous shoes! take care yall!

(439) Category 5 says:

I bought a pair last week and have worn them around the house and to work today (I’m a teacher). Being a former dancer, I tend to run and walk on the balls of my feet. Because of the cushion, I didn’t feel completely worn out at the end of the day today! I picked mine up at DSW and saw that they now have the Easytone for runners which have different cushioning. Since I’m not a runner, the regular ones are just fine for me (and cuter than the Sketchers!!!)

Just bought my reebok easytone’s about an hour ago. They are AMAZINGLY comfy..feel like walking on pillows. if you have back problems like I do, it’s worth the 100 bucks whether you see toning results or not.

June 7, 2010 at 1:32 pm
(442) michelle says:

i have the easytone flip flops what a disappointment, not sure if they toned any where as after 10 minutes of walking with them, they had removed skin on top of my feet and both feet felt bruised. sent them back to reebok who have sent them back to me with a note saying it is not a quality fault and that these might not be suited to my feet.. i am back to wearing cheap flip flops now with delight.. reebok your flipflops are a big flop!!!, and will think twice before buying any more of your products…

June 8, 2010 at 7:47 pm
(443) TK says:

I have a long list of issues that I have suffered from since early High School with my feet, ankles, knees and most recently, hips! I bought the Easytones to see if they indeed worked the muscles like they advertise. Sure enough, day one with them I was more sore in the legs than ever before from running on a treadmill. It was a good sore, as though I had a really good work out. Also to make things better, I have not had any pain AT ALL in my feet, ankles, KNEES [were the worst] OR my hips. I have never not had pain in these areas after just one run before I bought these shoes, I run everyday in them and no pain at all anymore. They were a miracle for me, and a lot less pain killers! I give these shoes an A+

June 9, 2010 at 1:28 pm
(444) Lori says:

I got my easytones not even a month ago and my left shoe went flat on me!! I used them 5 days a week and walked 3-5 miles a day in them. So I am EXTREMELY UNHAPPY they didn’t last very long!!!! I liked walking in them but it took my feet a while to get use to them! I had alot of blisters, numbness in my feet and my ankles were sore from getting use to balancing on them! I tried twice to e-mail the company about the shoes and have gotten no response! Not happy at all esp for $100 a pop! Anyone know of another brand (besides the ugly sketchers) that do the same thing and are affordable??

June 10, 2010 at 10:03 pm
(445) helene says:

I love my Easy tones. Have had them for 4 months and within 1 month of wearing them people started asking me if I was losing weight. I would get on the scale and even tho I didn’t lose any weight..I sure did tone up to the point that it looked like I had

I just bought these shoes and wore them for the first time. THEY’RE GOING BACK TO THE STORE! The worst shoes I’ve ever worn. I cut my walk short just so I could get them off. The balls under the front part of my foot (the ball of my foot)seemed to cut of cirulation. My feet felt hot, then started to tingle, then my toes when numb!

June 13, 2010 at 12:14 am
(448) sue says:

I just got them, as a person with very bad back problems i was shocked at the comfort. It was like walking on a bubble wrap,all my other shoes i still fill the sole of the shoe and it is very painful. I have tried everything, and all different kind of shoes these are the only ones that i can go shopping in and still be able to move after.

June 14, 2010 at 1:18 am
(449) Allison says:

This blog post was pointless, Paige Waehner. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the shoes won’t magically tone anything just by wearing them; you have to actually move around in them to see results. If you don’t have any insights into the quality of the product based on peronal experience, then you have nothing to post about it.

June 14, 2010 at 1:43 pm
(450) Lucie says:

DO NOT BUY THEM! I bought them before Xmas 09, started to wear them in february or marchand they were very comfortable. BUT after 3 months balls on right shoe got flat. Contacted e-shop I bought it from and answer was: Its caused by using. I will never buy another pair and never will recomend them to anyone.

i havent tryed them yet, but for all of you that are looking around $119, and $250, you can get them for $100 at lady foot locker. and if you military there $89. just a suggestion. :)

(452) Elle says:

I bought them, had to take them back for a larger size, but even the larger size damn near kills me when i wear them, they are the most uncomfortable shoes i have ever owned, i would be better off running in 10inch heels then walking in these god-awful shoes. should have a moneyback guarantee with them, i was told to wear them in….I’m still trying…

June 19, 2010 at 5:49 pm
(453) Eala says:

The Easy Tone’s felt fine at first but my foot went numb and stayed numb for a week after the first day I wore them. Tried again two weeks later hoping it was just a coincidence but no. :( Very disapointed, have the Masai’s which are great for walking and have lasted two years but they are sore when just standing in them.

(454) Summer says:

Bought the “SimplyTone” shoes supposedly designed to strengthen key leg muscles ( as mentioned on the box.) Can’t find anything on line about it. I needed a pair of good shoes to wear to work ( I’m a night nurse working the 12 hour shift). So far my feet are satisfied; they’re very comfortable shoes and I can feel that “tightening” in my leg muscles when I walk.

Still I would love some feed back on these particular shoes.

June 20, 2010 at 7:19 pm
(455) mae says:

I was hesitant to buy a pair of easy tones when I saw the price as well but after asking Co workers about their opinions and doing some research I went to the store and tried on a pair and ended up buying they do take some time to get used to but they are extremely comfortable I’m a nurse and I am on my feet for 8-16 hours a day and I can definitely feel my muscles working. I love these shoes and think they’re worth the money. And after being on my feet for so long my feet don’t hurt one bit. ; D

June 21, 2010 at 11:39 pm
(456) trisha says:

Just got back from returning my Easy Tones to the mall store where I bought them. I had to wear my Fit Flops because my toes are so destroyed I can’t stand to put anything against them. I wear a size 7 and 1/2 shoe but the store measured me and told me to buy an 8 – which I did. I walk 5 miles a day and oddly enough my feet are okay for the first 2 and 1/2, and after that, I start to suffer. My toes are blistered and one of my toenails is actually black and will fall off soon from pressing against the front of the shoe and also from pressing against the top of the shoe. My feet tend to be wide and I am convinced that these are not cut properly for people with wider feet.

Because I wore them outside, I couldn’t get a refund. So I now have a store credit and will probably never spend it since the only reason I went to the store was because they sell Easy Tones and that is what I wanted. I would say that I had the Easy Tones for about a month and a half. With the warmer weather and the tendency for feet to swell, these sneakers are totally unaccommodating.

I have no idea what sneaker I will go after. I just know that I won’t be needing them for a short while because I need to let my toes totally heal. Blisters on just about every toe, pain when I even touch any of my nails because my toes would push against the front of the sneaker. Total waste of money.

(457) New buyer of Reebok EasyTone says:

I purchased my EasyTones on Sunday and wore them yesterday for the first time. I walked 2.5 miles on trail which had a couple of steep inclines. They were WONDERFUL and felt like I was walking on super soft terrain. The traction was incredible! For a first time user, I would highly recommend them.

June 24, 2010 at 9:26 am
(458) barbi says:

I am on my second pair of the easytones. You can definetly feel your glutes working harder in the beginning, however, as with everything, you get used to it, and they don’t feel different after awhile. . I suppose that is conditioning and not a bad thing.

June 25, 2010 at 1:38 pm
(459) Xophia says:

I own a pair of the first edition easytone Reebok and I am in love with them!!!! They come with a little booklet of starter exercises that you can do with the shoes and they really work!!! I have noticed 100% change with these shoes!!!! I can wear them all day and my feet feel great, I can work out while standing in line at the grocery store! I have also been working out, but when I forget to get into the gym, I wear these for that week and stretch and I am still progressing with my progress with these shoes! I also own their line of zigs (I may be wrong on the spelling) and those are only for running ( as the easytone are for everyday walking and exercising, they recommend you do not run in them because of the stability balls, but they are not uncomfortable at all which is another plus) they are awesome! They make me feel lighter and my legs go a lot farther with these shoes. I know I may have spent $200.00 dollars for both pair, but I would rather pay that much for two pair of shoes, than a trainer and a gym membership. These shoes allow me to do what I want on my own time, I may fall off of working out and eaitng the best foods, but when I put these shoes on for my run/jogs and exercising they kick me where it should (in my tight rear end) and I feel them working everytime =-D OVERLY EXCITED AND SATISFIED CUSTOMER OF REEBOK EASYTONE AND ZIG

I bought these shoes and wore them for about 3 weeks and started having a lot of pain in my right hip joint…I wore a different shoe to let my hip rest. After a painful shot and rest for 2 weeks….I was fine. Then…..I put them on to wear again and within 3 hours I was in terrific pain AGAIN realizing these shoes were the culprit….I should have listened to my daughter who is an assistant to a ‘foot doctor’ …..she told me not to waste my money but I trusted Reebok…Now I think I will burn them!!!!!

(461) Katie says:

I bought a pair of these last week just before a week-long vacation in Orlando spending 12+ hours/day walking through Disney World, etc. I LOVE THEM!!! They are more comfortable than any other tennis shoes I’ve owned and I did not get one hint of a shin splint for the first time in years! After spending 12 hours/day for 7 days walking in these shoes, I have actually noticed a difference in the firmness of my legs and butt…whether that is due to the shoes themselves or just the shear amount of walking I did (or a combination of both)…who knows. But I am a happy customer!

(463) Sue B. says:

My husband gave me a pair of Easytones four days ago. I’m a bit perplexed by the reviews I’ve been reading where people either see them either as miraculous or crippling, LOL.

I find the sensation of wearing them bit unusual but not unpleasant. I can feel more tension in my legs and butt after using them – like I had had more of a workout than I would normally feel from a walk. The balancing pods don’t make me feel unstable but they are clearly meant for walking and not running. I’d be leery of using them on a treadmill. It also seems like common sense not to go crazy on the first day or two walking for miles and miles. Allow yourself get used to them.

I’d love to hear from anyone who has been able to use them without the pods popping for more than two or three months. I sure hope that’s not the normal lifespan of the shoe!!

Just got back from my 3 mile walk right now.

I actually do feel it in my calves.

(Which was a surprise because I am a total skeptic!)

I am kind of on the heavier side in terms of my weight, so my dilemma is:

will the “balance ball” pads which are said to be filled with air, on the bottom of my shoes “pop” or “deflate”?

I guess what I’m trying to say is, is it possible for me to break or destroy these shoes because of my weight just by walking in them on a normal & everyday basis?

I would be extremely disappointed (and not to mention, depressed) if my weight caused me to ruin these new shoes.

Any thoughts or advice?

Thanks in advance to those who have a reply.

I got a pair just a couple of hours ago from footlocker. The salesman there said that they were good for running, they were like “shock absorbers” and saved your knees. I told him I was looking for RUNNING shoes. Now everyone’s saying that’s not what they’re for. Help??

I bought the Reebok Easytones a month and a half ago at DSW for $99.99, and I have to say it was a waste of $99.99. The look of the shoe is O.K., the fit is good, the walk is great, but the wear is BAD! I walk about 2+ miles per day with my husband and dog. Unfortunately the stability balls are now flat and sunk inwards. The company claims the balls will never pop, but it seems mine have. Not sure if anyone else has experienced the same defect, but if you tread a lot of miles per day DON’T BUY this brand.

I wanted a pair of the Flip flops for Mother’s Day. I finally got them (my size is hard to find). I wore them twice and they KILLED my knees and not in a good way. This pain was to the point I could not climb in bed without pain and lying it bed they would ache. It caused me not to work out from the pain. Sadly, I never took a walk in them. That was just from wearing them around for short trips to the store.

(468) jules says:

These shoes started off well and I could feel and see the benefits. Sadly after less then three months the special pads on the sole have completely worn off leaving me with an expensive pair of uppers.

once you put the reebok easy tone shoes on you can defently say that they are extremely comfortable, but after wearing them for a couple of days i started getting severe lower back pain which i never suffered from before.

(470) SRM says:

Bought the reebok easytones in march 2010 and the right shoe air bubble on the bottom of the shoe deflaited. Tried to take them back to exchangs they said they cant do exchange even with the receipt. The manager also said they have had alot of the same problem with other costumers. Liked the shoes but i would not reccomend them because for that price you want them to last.

(471) Steph says:

Hello
I purchased the reebok easytone shoes and have had the same problem as most of the other women. Numbness, feet were hot. I walk about 10 miles a week and after 3 monthes the right shoe went flat. DO NOT BUY THESE SHOES! I called the place where i bought them from and they said they would exchange them. Went today to exchange them and the little B manager behind the counter said that they have a 30 day return policy. And that several people have acme in with the same problem and they expect a new pair of shoes for the ones that are defected. We have so many shoes in the back that are defective so we are not excepting anymore returns or exchanges after 30 days.
Ugh totally wanted to go off on her.

July 14, 2010 at 2:24 pm
(472) T says:

The Bubble bursts on these shoes.
It’s a defective product, don’t buy it.
Reebok scams the world again with their cheap overpriced crappy merchandise.
Retailers should ship them back to Reebok and get refunded their money for stocking such inferior products. Sure they were great at first, but after 30 days they go kaput, at $120 a pop it’s your typical 21st century rip off from the corporate greed machine.

(475) Casey says:

I haven’t tried reeboks easytones yet but I’ve talked to mother asking her opinon and she said that she hates reeboks since they wear out to quickly and they hurt her back and feet. I have lumbar shermans disease so I have major problems with my back. I tried on my moms sketchers shape ups and I was surprised that I could actually walk in them since they are so high up. I’m split between what to buy reeboks or shape ups? Sketchers last a long time and they are supposed to improve my back. Reeboks look like normal shoes and i wont have to look like im walking on stilts.

July 20, 2010 at 9:22 pm
(476) Angie says:

Don’t be fooled by “normal” looking shoes….that’s what I liked about them. I have both and the sketchers do the job. My dad has had 2 back surgeries but can walk comfortably in the sketchers. I went to the doctor today after wearing my reebok’s all day about a week ago. Could be a coincidence but I had to have x-rays and my foot is messed up. Will not wear the reebok’s again. Something about them rubbing the wrong way on my foot bones. A lady at work wears them all the time without issue and she’s a big walker. This is just my experience. Now I’m not suppose to walk, take advil, use ice and see them in a week or so…bummer.

(477) Toni says:

I just got the Easy Tone made for Finish Line stores. They come in a better looking style. However, the size is what I am worried about. I went a 1/2 size bigger and they are a little loose and I tried my true size 8 and it felt too small. Does anyone know how much bigger the shoe will get once its broken in?

July 21, 2010 at 2:28 pm
(478) V Jilote says:

I hate these shoes. I bought them a little less than a year ago and the balance balls on the front have already worn down. I paid $120 after taxes and they are already worn out. This is ridiculous. I recommend to anyone not to buy them because they do not last and Reebok won’t cover any problems with them.

July 21, 2010 at 8:27 pm
(479) jennifer says:

Just bought these sneakers and never thought I would pay that much for shoes but I am soooo glad I did. They are the most comfortable sneakers I have ever owned. Will definitley buy a new pair when these ones wear out.

(480) Junie says:

I am amazed that anyone thinks that after wearing a pair of shoes, no matter how fine or expensive, for a YEAR–it would not be necessary to replace them.

(481) AME says:

Bought these stupid Easytone walking shoes two months ago on the recommendation of a girlfriend who loves hers. I got the walking version (there is also a running and a cross training version). Found out today that you are NEVER supposed to run on the walking version. I’ve probably only got about an hour tops in run time over the course of the past two months, and on average about 3kms per day in walking the dogs. However, for almost the WHOLE time I have been suffering from very painful hips on both sides. Just started physio ($200 worth SO FAR)… and after hearing the salesperson at the SAME store where I bought my Easytones tell my other girlfriend that if she plans to do ANY running that she should have the Runtone version of the shoe because the walking version is NOT to be run in. Hmmm… does 2 plus 2 equal four for you too? Am pretty confident that the majority of my hip pain has been caused by these DAMN shoes! I’m going back to my old pair right now. DO NOT BUY THE REEBOKS!

July 26, 2010 at 12:10 pm
(482) TINA says:

I am curious, I have had mine for about 3 months now. I work in healthcare doing 12 hour shifts but now all of a sudden I have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. I have never had problems with my feet before and I am only 32. Has anyone else had these problems? My friend at work told me that someone she knows is now having arch pain in her feet after having these shoes. I am just wondering if maybe there is a link between these two things.

July 30, 2010 at 10:30 pm
(483) Melissa says:

I bought the Easytones in March and fell in love with them. They did help me tone up and lose a few pounds, just from walking an hour a day, every day. BUT…by May the pods had both deflated and the soles had worn down so much the pods were exposed (blue in case you’re wondering)and squeaking with each step. Needless to say, i think I will be purchasing the Skechers Shape-Ups next.

August 1, 2010 at 11:15 am
(484) Deborah Kaye says:

I’m glad everyone thinks Reeboks are great for conditioning but people can consider these shoes a miracle for plantar fasc. and foot injury. My legs and feet were run over by a truck. they are full of pins, skin grafts and soft tissue injuries.
I’ve tried everything my podiatrist recommended.. all helped somewhat until my friend who suffers from chronic foot pain told me about the Reeboks she wears. i promptly went out and invested $85 I didn’t have to spare.. these shoes are a life saver!! thank you Reebok

August 2, 2010 at 8:23 am
(485) Alison says:

i have a pair of the easytone sneakers and i dont feel any real difference in my body(personally i love the feeling of worked muscles) i had heard that i would be able to feel my muscles working while wearing the sneakers. i am not saying that they do not work so i will continue to wear them and at the least they absorb some impact that would otherwise be taken out on my knees and ankles :)

August 3, 2010 at 1:47 pm
(486) Tina says:

Since wearing these shoes for several months and working 12 hour shifts as a nurse I have been experiencing unusual pain in one or both feet. When I get out of bed the next morning it feels painful and odd like my toes are still trying to grip the floor. I am concerned that I am doing damage to feet that may be irreversable.

August 4, 2010 at 11:57 am
(487) kris10 says:

If you are looking to strengthen your feet, ankles, and legs then go with the Nike Free shoe. They are the most comfortable shoes ever and incredibly lightweight and flexible. They are designed to simulate barefoot running and walking, but extremely supportive at the same time. I have muscle definition in my legs now where I didn’t even know I had muscles. If you just want a great butt, forget the buying the shoes (Nikes or Reebok’s easy tone) and walk on an incline on the treadmill or a hilly path. This will burn more calories and tone your legs better than any shoe, and it’s cheaper. If you still want more, like another poster said, nothing will replace traditional leg exercises: squats, single leg dead lifts, etc. Do your arm workouts on a bosu ball, and for increased difficulty balance on one leg while doing it. The only circumstances under which I would recommend this shoe is if you are an inactive person and having these shoes somehow inspires you to begin a regular walking exercise routine.

August 5, 2010 at 9:59 am
(488) Kim says:

I bought the Easytones back in March of 2010. They are very comfortable, but they seem the press down on the top of my foot causing my toes and eventually my leg to go numb. I have loosened the laces but it causes the heel to rub, which now has a hole. The most distressing part about the shoe is the air cushion on the bottom has worn out, so now I squeak when I walk (which is not a pleasent sound).

In case you are looking into buying these shoes, just know they are a very loud shoe in general, it sounds like a galloping horse.

August 8, 2010 at 12:25 pm
(489) Anais says:

I work for a Reebok store and I was conveinced these would work just from the stats. Then I finally got some and wore them 4 months straight on my 9 hour shifts.. WOW I was even more sure they worked!!! You do feel the difference in your legs and my husband saw the difference in the shape. I have had no problem with the numbness talked about or the pain… I have herniated discs in my back and had to stop working for a few months so I did not wear them.. Summer came around and it was vacation time and I purchased a pair of the Flip (flops), after 3 days of wearing these my legs where in pain!!! lol! But good pain, it was a good workout feeling. I had forgotten how good they worked.

I know some of you will say: yeah but you work for Reebok… yes I do but it does not mean I have to agree with all that comes out.. but on this one I do!

There are a few things that came up in the previous comments that I would like to address…

EASYTONES are NOT meant to run in or exercice in. The micro-instability could be to much and not offer enough support. I always suggest the as WALKING shoes or to do free weights here and there. NO aerobics classes or running.

If you want to run: the RUN TONES are a good complement
If you want to train: The TRAIN TONES are a good complement

Someone was asking about SIMPLY TONES: these are made of foam instead of air, the instability offered might be less then on the east Tones, but the price has been adjusted in consequence. These where made to be more affordable.

When buying a shoe:
ALWAYS make sure you are comfortable!!! If it hurts when you try it on it will hurt when you walk, even with time. I always say, if it is a little bit snugg it will give but if it feels tight or uncomfortable it’s not for you!
For the size, have the sales clerk mesure your feet (both of them) but remember that the size can vary according to the shape of the shoe. You might want to try 1/2 a size bigger or smaller.
When you try shoes on really try them on. Don’t just stand and feel… WALK a lot around the store. If they are running shoes you are buying run around the store. If the are for exercise try some moves you would normally do. Who care what you look like, as long as you know that they fit and that they will be comfortable.
Try to go shopping when your feet are most swollen, you won’t have surprises when you actually wear them.

I hope all of this helps you and that you do enjoy your kicks!

(490) JC says:

I bought a pair of these a couple of months ago. I have stopped wearing them. I now have terrible foot pain and they have aggravated my knees. I would not recommend these shoes especially if you have foot or knee problems.

August 10, 2010 at 4:16 pm
(491) guest says:

I recommend them. At first there was discomfort in my knees, but then again it was working different muscles. One weekend I worked 2 shifts 16 and 12hrs in length I had no discomfort at all. When I took my shoes off each night not only was there no pain but I felt like I was on clouds. I have recommended them to males (my husband and his friends)and females and they love them! My only issue is that my socks bunch with them (especially ankle socks) I wonder if that’s why the commercials don’t have the user wearing any hmmm…

August 11, 2010 at 3:02 pm
(492) April says:

I loved these throughout my pregnancy, took them to the street after having the baby and found that I rolled my ankles a lot while walking outside, especially on curbs until I went to the Indy 500 and rolled an ankle on steps!!!! A $25,000 surgery later to put a metal plate in my broken wrist they are in the trash. Note: I have always been athletic and never been accident prone. I have recently seen a study by a doctor stating that they really don’t do as much as they claim (not that they don’t work at all). I don’t recommend these anymore and am looking for others who have had serious injuries due to these shoes…

August 12, 2010 at 5:33 pm
(493) dawn says:

Love the idea of these sneakers but… after two months the air in bottom of shoes has deflated and rubber wears off. The are very comfortable when new but no difference in leg tone. Would only buy again if they lasted more than 2 months.

August 15, 2010 at 8:45 pm
(494) J. Aiden says:

I have been an athlete for a long time. Ballet dancer, cheerleader, runner and hiker. I have never suffered a knee, leg or foot injury. I have never experienced leg, foot, hip, back, or knee pain. BUT……. after 6 months of wearing these shoes, I now suffer serious pain in both knees!! The shoes do indeed make the muscles of your legs work harder, but the “wobble” effect can and has for me, created knee pain. Be warned, these shoes can impact on your knee joints by the constant unnatural movements. I wish I had never tried them!!

August 16, 2010 at 5:21 pm
(495) Kait says:

I bought these shoes 2.5 months ago. They are already wearing out! The sole right around the balls on the heels are worn through and I am sure the ball will go next. I can’t believe it. I don’t even wear them on a daily basis. And there goes my 120 bucks down the drain! What a waste.

August 16, 2010 at 9:27 pm
(496) Penny says:

Bought these shoes and after 3 days, my knee was swollen and I was seeing an orthopedic surgeon. After 3 weeks in therapy, cortisone shots, I am finally able to walk without crutches! I am not a tennis shoe wearer, so wearing these shoes was the only thing that changed in my routine. My therapist states the shoe was the cause and to not wear then again. I think there should be a warning to check with your doctor before wearing. I have paid more in Dr and therapy visits than I did for the shoes and they won’t take the shoes back! I am holding onto my medical receipts, just in case there is a lawsuit on the horizon. I just want my medical bills paid and the cost of the shoes.

August 17, 2010 at 10:55 am
(497) Alicia Tunby says:

I really liked them until only three weeks into wearing them and walking with them my right pods blew out and now the store where I purchased will not do anything for me as I can not find my receipt and I contacted Reebok and they said that I have to eat the shipping charges and then it will be 4-6 weeks before there is resolution! Atrocious customer service and this will be my last Reebok purchase! The right thing to do would be to send me a replacement pair and let me put the defective pair back in a prepaid shipping package and be done with it but I see where the consumer stands with Reebok!

(498) DaniCali says:

I’ve had my easytones for 3 months now. I have noticed a tremendous change in my calves/legs etc. However, I’m not impressed with their quality. The bottoms have completely worn out. I wear my easytones to work everyday and I’m a waitress so I walk ALOT. And in 3 months my shoes are dust. $119 well spent? maybe

(499) D says:

Went looking for the New Balance 1100′s, their version of Shape Ups & ReeTones, however no one carries them yet in Colorado. I did find the Ree Tones at JcPenneys though for only $79.00 and from what I’ve been reading it sounds like a steal!!!!! I think I’ll try them because I am a big walker too. I stroll my son around everywhere so it’ll probably be worth the investment :) . Thx for all the great reviews on the shoe. One last note, they are a lot more attractive than the Skecher Shape Ups & those that look like them & not as accident prone :D . Happy Fitness everyone………

August 26, 2010 at 12:27 pm
(500) JerseyShoreJenni says:

I have never believed in shoes that make you lose weight or anything like that, but I bought these shoes on a whim because I needed something I could stand in all day at work (retail) and walk to and from work in and after you break them in (i never bought shoes that came with instructions before) as directed, they actually feel great. I have knee and ankle injuries from high school track and was worried it might make the issue worse but I found I was walking faster to work, and more comfortable with being on my feet all day because the shoes do try to reinforce standing in a proper position. I definitely recommend them, oh, and nothing will make u lose weight like some good cardio and lunges, but these shoes definitely have made a difference just by using them as walking shoes! Ive lost 2 inches in my thigs in 2 weeks and my calves are starting to tone really well! These are results I did not get from my regular new balance and nike cross trainers. Definitely worth the extra cash…if you dont want to spend a lot try getting the lady foot locker VIP card, i only paid 70 bucks for mine!!

(501) John57 says:

I brought the Avia Men’s I-Tone 9997M af Famous Footwear after trying on the Shape-ups and the MBT in other stores. After a week in the shoes I was able to walk up the stairs faster than I ever did. Last winter I had a hard time just climbing DOWN the stairs. I will find how how this shoes hold up after a fews months. Already my feet feels a bit better and not as sore before bed. The Avia is more similar to MBT but more flexible and lower weight.

August 30, 2010 at 8:21 pm
(502) Holly says:

I felt that the Easy Tone shoes made me walk more upright with better posture and I found that I could walk a greater distance than in my other shoes.

My issue with these shoes is with the upper part of the shoe where the perforatd part is and the underlying white material is. I went walking on the beach and got sand in these upper parts and it stained both the perforated material and the under white material. I tried washing the shoe in the washing machine and the stains did not wash out.

I live in a climate where we have a lot of rain for many months over the winter and I don’t think these shoes will work well in my climate – I believe my feet will be soaked every time I wear them in our wet weather.

August 30, 2010 at 11:30 pm
(503) Ally says:

my mother bought these shoes recently and actually had to give them to me because after wearing them all day her sciatic nerve started acting up! which isn’t good… and then i started wearing them… i had new insoles and everthing… and when i went walking after the 2nd or 3rd day suddenly it felt like the joints of my big toes were broken!!! it hurt and it just did not feel good… so in my opinion i think for 50 bucks they were not worth it at all!!!!

August 31, 2010 at 12:00 am

I got mine two days ago at the Shoe Dept. for 80 bucks. Money well spent!

(505) Me says:

My feet hurt me sooooooooooooooooooooooo bad. At first I thought I loved them so I bought not only one pair but two (yes two) and after about 2 months I found out when I had them off at anytime I could hardly walk on my heals. So just this past week I changed back to my Jordan’s and I still hurt. I wish I knew how to contact rebock and let them know how I feel about this. If I had to give a suggestion I’d say please don’t buy these.
Thanks you for your time.

(508) Claudia DellaRipa says:

I am really upset actually. I walk about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes about 4-6 times a week with my Reebok Toners and I just noticed this morning that there is a tear in the inside of my shoe. I felt as if there was a blister coming about and I thought it was from my new socks as they were too big but no it’s from the shoe. I haven’t even had the shoes from a year yet. So now I am frustrated and I am not working, so I can’t just go out and spend another $100 for Tennis shoes.

September 7, 2010 at 9:23 pm
(509) malissa says:

To everyone who is dissing these shoes, i would like to say that i actually bought a pair of Reebok Easytone shoes this summer and my legs look amazing.
No i didnt get dramatic results but if that is what youre wanting to acheive anyway they how about you actuallly try working out. But i wore these to work three days a week and the “cottage cheese” on the back of my thighs and upper butt dimished amazingly. Im not saying it all went away completley, but the improvement so far has been amazing. and i know if I keep wearing them the results will get better and better. So before you talk crap about something you havnt even tried, either try them out or go work out if you want HUGE fast results and stop complaining

September 8, 2010 at 3:58 pm
(510) Wendi says:

I am a Nike girl, but I decided to try the Reebok Easytone. It is the most comfortable shoe I have every worn. I walk a mile to work, workout, and walk on the treadmill with them. They are great!

September 9, 2010 at 3:51 pm
(511) Allison says:

I bought these shoes less than a year ago and they have already broken. I did not notice a difference in the tone, either. I talked to customer service and they said that these shoes are only for OCCASSIONAL use and are said to have a life of only 400 miles. Please, do not waste the money on these things.

September 10, 2010 at 11:12 pm
(512) peg says:

I have only used one time and my toes went numb. Also my back started to hurt. But it did work my calf muscles. I’m hoping that the numbness will go away.

(513) nicole says:

I should have read the reviews on them before I bought them.
A lifetime of 2 months??????
thats crazy.
I bought them for work shoes. I’m thinking i’ll wear them every second day and hope I don’t get permanent injuries just from wearing them.
So far so good but today was only my first day. my legs feel like they’ve been worked out. i hope thats a good thing.

September 14, 2010 at 8:24 pm
(514) Jennifer says:

Owned a pair for two months and must say I love them. I am on feet for 12 hours a day and really make my job tolerable. Unfortunately, the inside of shoe, heel area, has warn down to the plastic on each shoe. I get blisters on my feet and cracks that bleed from the plastic. Sad, after 2 months that this would happen on $110 dollar pair of shoes. I emailed reebok and waiting for response.

September 17, 2010 at 12:32 pm
(515) sherri says:

Today I will be returning my third pair of reebok toning shoes since June. The first 2 pair the air cushion in the ball of the foot deflated and when it did it was painful. So I then went to a pair of runtones and now the heal of the left shoe has deflated and actually bruised the back of my arch. I really like the feel of the shoes, I like reebok and I wanted these to work, but they keep blowing out on me. All I am doing in these is walking also.
The benefits are there, I could feel the calves, hamstrings, and top of glutes burning during long walks, they also help you to have better posture where you find yourself holding in your abs naturally and your lower back muscles. On days where I was having lower back pain I would put on these shoes and it would eleviate it.
Hopefully they will eventually fix these issues and I will try them again.

(516) Trang says:

Last friday, I played badminton and I wore my Reebok EasyTone shoes for three hours. The soles were confortable. I really feel during my matches that my leg muscles tone, but my legs burned out and I became a little bit tired to continue to play badminton. Therefore, I think it’s not a good idea to wear it for long hours if you practice a sport intensively, so for your safety, change your shoes to rest your legs.

September 21, 2010 at 2:34 pm
(517) Jo says:

I’m a walker of many years, walk on the average of 12 mi. per wk. I bought these shoes hoping to shape my legs & butt. Walked in them for over a wk and have ended up with heel spur on my right foot. I have had this pain for over 2 mos now and am unable to walk any distance at all. The only thing that I did differently in my many years of walking were these shoes. I never had any foot problems before, until now! I am so discusted with these shoes and now all my problems and pain. Would Never reccommend anyone buying these shoes ever!

September 23, 2010 at 3:29 am

I have owned these shoes for 6 months. I don’t know if I now have muscles I never did before, but they have increased my balance. I definately feel like I am getting a better workout.

(519) Chelsea says:

I have had these shoes for about 10 months and I love them. Extremely comfortable. However, I did notice yesterday that both balls on one of the shoes deflated. This happened sometime this week. Not a bad run considering I wear them all the time.

i am in italy on holidays and saw an ad for them, now i soo want them!!
for those who are complaining about having to walk on the outer side of your foot, that is a good thing! it straightens out your knees and spine, much like authotics, only much more comfortable
cant wait to try!

I got these shoes for Christmas. I thought awesome. Well I am 56 years old and never had hip problems. I starting getting severe hip pain. I went to see a orthopedic. I had an xray and a MRI. They could not find anything. I recieved a cortasone shot in my hip, never wore those shoes again. My hip is finally starting to feel better. So I have a size 7 if anybody would like to buy them.

I have worn these for 3 months and have started to have problems my knees. One more so than the other swells and becomes very still and I find it difficult to walk. I’ve stopped wearing the shoes and my knee is slowly getting better. I had been to the doctor and had it checked out but they could not find anything wrong so they told me to stop wearing the shoes. It’s very frustrating because obviously they were not cheap.

(524) Samantha says:

So I bought these last saturday and I looooove them!!!! I wear them just about everywhere. The only thing I don’t like about them would be the mesh because mesh is hard to clean. But other then that I love them and definetly would recomend them to anyone. I bought them because I wanted a new pair of tennis shoes so I kept saying to myself that I was going to get them ans so finally I just picked them up !!! I really feel it when I’m going up stairs but its a good feeling! Deff reccomend them!

(525) nicholas says:

“…and, frankly, a shoe (no matter how fabulous it is) isn’t going to change your body.” what an ignorant and unfounded thing to say. there are many, MANY, physiological and kinesiological issues that are “corrected” by proper footwear. no, the easy tones do not help with most any of these issues but you are generalizing all footwear in this statement you are wrong.

(526) Harriet says:

I love my Reebok Easytones. Have been a New Balance girl but wouldn’t go back. I’ve had two comments while in the gym about my legs and give the shoes credit. However, I do walk 2 mi. 4-5 days a wk. and ride a bike. But, no one ever commented before! Mine did split on the inside by the ankle. I had insurance and sent them back and got a new pair. I plan to buy a black pair for daytime wearing. They’re the best for me and I recommend them highly.

(527) Janice says:

I have had hip replacements and now have knee problems. I bought a pair of these thinking that they would be good for my legs, using all the right muscles. I wore them shopping for a couple of hours and by the time I got home my knee was so sore and swelled I couldn’t walk for a day and had to ice my knee and stay off it. Don’t buy these if you have any type of leg or knee problems!

(528) Karen says:

I love them!!! I bought the RunTones about a month ago and have been wearing them everyday and everywhere for walking, and errands, etc. They are so comfortable! I have bad knees, bad ankles, and lower back issues and these shoes have not caused me any problems, in fact I actually feel better now. And when I say I’ve been wearing them every day, I mean for hours and hours at a time.

I do see a difference in my calves – and admit it may not be for the reasons that Reebok claims, but since I find them so comfortable, I am walking more. I hope that the pods last, but since I usually need to replace my running/walking shoes anyway every few months and these are so comfortable, I will definitely be buying another pair when these go. I have black and purple by the way! :)

(532) Adrie says:

Do not buy these shoes unless you want to waste money. I bought a pair of Reebok Easytone shoes 5 months ago. On the bottom of the shoe where the front ball meets the sole, it already wore out, causing the ball to pop, which now makes a huge whooshing sound when I walk. So now I have a $100.00 pair of shoes that can’t be worn. I will never buy Reebok again!

I tried on a pair at Kohl’s today. Most comfortable shoe I’ve ever put on. I’m buying them tomorrow for 79.99 and I will also be using a 15% coupon. I’m buying them for walking on the treadmill and I know they are going to eleveate my foot pain that I get after about 20 mins.

November 10, 2010 at 11:52 am
(534) Karen says:

I would say if your not in somewhat good shape / condition to start, save your money! I’ve worn a pair for the past 10 months, several times a week, the only thing I have to account for the expense is extreme knee pain. It seems the action required to stabilize your walking stride causes your knee to wobble also.

November 11, 2010 at 11:20 pm
(535) ted says:

I have worn a pair of MBT’s constantly for the past 6 months and I am on my feet walking around all day at work 6 days a week. In the beginning they were great after a week of adjustment and soreness. Then after about the 3rd month of constant wear I had constant pain in my lower back and achey knees like never before. I plodded through the ordeal compensating with a medical back support and knee braces under my clothing, but still not giving up on wearing the shoes.

Then I realized that the reason for the pain was probably the instability the shoes created working out my stabilizer muscles all the time, every single day. So by the 6th month I decided to take some time off and go without the shoes for a week. Low and behold. my lower back muscles finally had the time they needed to recuperate and repair all the micro damage that had been done. After which my muscles were amazingly strong and my posture as straight as it had been all the time I was wearing the shoes.

Years ago I used to be a competitive body builder so I jsut thought taking some time away from the shoes would give the affected areas time to recover. It did.

(536) Sally says:

They are not claiming to replace any form of healthy eating or exercise. They are just a little extra help, and frankly if someone is willing to do something to work on getting healthy, and are doing all the right eating and such, then if they want to get shoes with little balls in them, hell, why not?

(537) Sandra Jones says:

I bought easytone trainers while on holiday in the USA. I had back surgery 5 years ago and I was left with muscles in my tummy shot to pieces so my core stability weak. I can’t praise these trainers more they have reduced my tummy size by one dress size and 7lbs in weight in a month of wearing them. I walk with sticks and only use these trainers while I am indoors and walk very slowly. I do have a very healthy lifestyle which does help enormously. So girls get out exercise watch what you eat and with easytone trainers you will lose weight!!!!!!!!

I bought a pair of the Runtone shoes yesterday for $57 at the Navy Exchange…they are extremely comfortable and made it easier to run. The material is very breathable. I didn’t notice a huge change in leg workout but I think it just takes some time. I would recommend this shoe to anyone.

(543) Kyle says:

I have a hard time believing that shoes will ever replace the tried-and-true real method of “toning” and building muscle: exercise. Here’s a thought: why do your calf muscles tighten up? Is that healthy? After all, calf muscles tighten up when wearing high heels, and every doctor in the world agrees that high heels aren’t good for you.

My advice is, save your money and spend your time instead.

December 15, 2010 at 7:57 pm
(545) dimitri says:

The main problem with these shoes,is that women wear them incorrectly.They were NEVER intended to be worn with socks.The mechanics of these shoes,is that they are supposed to simulate walking barefoot on beach sand.DO YOU WALK ON THE BEACH BAREFOOT,JUST WITH YOUR SOCKS ON?Don’t think so.Any problems with feel,foot pain,and back pain is just as simple as getting rid of wearing socks with these shoes.The Reebok infomercial,(www.reebok easy tone.com),states this.

(546) Alaina K says:

I purchased these at a local mall and at the store they felt cushy and comfortable. However when I wore them out my feet got numb and I had to take them off from the pain. They were cutting off my circulation and I was even wearing thin socks and didnt have them on that tight. I let my 22 yr old daughter try them and they did the same thing to her feet. I’m returning them.

I would just like to say that these shoes are not very good at all. Out of three coworkers, including myself, two of our shoes went flat and two of ours had top of the toes showing within a month. I have contacted finishline and reebok about this problem and have not gotten a response yet!! How many times do you have to inquire for customer service to get a response???? DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!

i bought the shoes. i am a HUGE fan i wore them EVERYWHERE and i noticed my behind alot toner and my hamstrings..i highly recommend them i also go running in them i only run a mile and it really helped. they dont look dorky and they are super comfortable. i highly reccomend them to anyone who wants to tone there behind and legs. also if you dont run it doesnt matter if you dont my friend doesnt run she just does the normal walking and she has a desk job so i mean they work!

December 28, 2010 at 10:46 am
(551) Jassi says:

I think the author of this article needs to reconsider what she writes… “a shoe (no matter how fabulous it is) isn’t going to change your body”… that is an incorrect statement if you wear heels for a prolonged period of time it can shape your calfs nicely not to mention give you weird looking toes… so that statement is incorrect. It is clear that she didn’t even try the shoes “easy tones” and based on her so called research she doesn’t know how to do that either. The work out a lot and bought both the run tones and the easy tones and within a day or two of wearing them I can feel it in my thighs in my calves and in my butt… they may not do the miracle everyone is hoping it will do but they at least keep you toned up in between gym visits. You can down right feel it in your muscles. It seems like every article Paige Waehner writes she talks out of her ass and doesn’t know how to do her research well enough.

December 28, 2010 at 9:26 pm
(552) Beth says:

I was hoping to get a new pair for Christmas, but I didn’t… I have had one other pair and they are by far the best shoes I have EVER owned. They are WELL WORTH the money, but they are actually coming down in price now. I went to DSW the day after Christmas and found a pair on the clearance rack for $50! I was thrilled. I’ve read through the comments and myself have had years of knee problems. These shoes help me to walk or work out several days a week without feeling the knee pain that I felt in regular walking shoes, which then made me skip days. I also work on my feet alot and these shoes have held up for a year being worn at least 10 – 20 hours a week. That’s pretty good in my opinion. I also have a pair of the skechers shape-ups and I do like them, but skechers don’t fit my foot as well and they feel too wide if I get them long enough. Not the case with these. If you can wear normal Reeboks, Brooks, or Asics, then the size will be the same. Unfortunately for Asics (I was buying two or three pair of them a year for workouts and walking, at about $80 a pair on sale) I will continue to buy EasyTones instead… No matter what they cost.

Honestly, I just got these shoes and I had no idea if they would work. I was very open minded. I wore them for 2 days straight.(shopping and work). I can really say that my calves are sore.

I just recieved a pair of the reebok easy toners for men for my birthday. All I can say is man oh, man oh, man!!!! I have never felt this much comfort in any show like the reebok easy tone. Jus walking and 30 minutes of cardio. I could feel the resistance in my hamstrings, calves, and my forty nine year old butt. All I can say is give them a try. Yes they certainly made a believer out of me.

January 8, 2011 at 5:31 pm
(557) Catlin says:

I just want to point out that there has is a neutral study, done by the American Council of Exercise, about these types of shoes, showing that they don’t tone your body in any different ways than normal running shoes would. It even explains why users think it works after trying them.

Hi I live in Alberta canada. I am a 50 year old that ;love to walk. Purchased my east tone, and love them until the left foot runner let go. The bottom of the sole let go, and it is completly flattened out, since they are a year old,I cannot return them, but has this happened to anyone else out there?

March 9, 2011 at 3:46 pm
(564) Belle says:

I had a pair and they were extremely comfortable after the first day or two of breaking them in and I wore them all the time. I definately could feel a difference in them versus my regular tennis shoes and I would recommend switching between regular and these often because I felt like my feet would hurt more when wearing the reeeboks longer and then switching to my regular tennis shoes (alternation will keep different muscles working equally). HOWEVER, after less than 6 months my easy tones went flat (not sure why or if its was because I literally wore them everywhere.) That is my only complaint on them (oh and a little pricey)

Got a pair from my hubby for Valentine’s Day (Finish Line for $30!!! White and silver). It’s a month and a half later, and the hubby told me yesterday that my butt looks “lifted”. I noticed it myself, but I wanted him to make the comment first.

I know there are a lot of naysayers, but I feel and see the results and for $30 it was TOTALLY worth it.

(569) Melissa says:

I just bought these last week for $60 at Famous Footwear. They were so comfortable in the store! Maybe I didn’t allow any time to break them in properly, but after my first 5 mile walk in them, my feet and toes were numb and came away with a massive blister on the bottom of one foot. I gave my feet a break for a few days, doubled my socks on my next 5 mile walk and same thing happened! It feels like the “ball” on the front part of the shoe is curving into my feet and causing the numbness. They are very comfortable for light, easy walking, but are proving not to be a good “power walking” shoe. Is it just me?

April 17, 2011 at 3:29 pm
(570) Detox Stew says:

I havent used the Rebox version, but I just tried the Danskin version after 6 months of having them sit in my closet. I walk 5 miles a day, so I’v been reluctant, afraid they would mess me up.
Well I have to say I was impressed! What a great workout! I could very well feel muscles being used that are not normally used during a walk!

And im short girl so i know this is the boost i needed ! there on sale up here in Chicago @ footlocker got mine for 79.99 plus tax ! But jus think of them as high heels because most women who wear high heels alot tend to have great legs !

(572) Jeanette says:

I love my Rebok easy tones. When I first started wearing them I would take casual walks and could feel every mucle in my legs hips and butt tingle. Once I got use to them I started power walking with them and again I am getting the same effect. Plus I am recovering from a back injury and all back pain is gone since I have been wearing them. I have noticed a significant change in my weight and the way my clothes fit. I asked my spinal doctor about them he prefers them over sketchers. He said they are safer not as high a sole. I give them a big thumbs up and would advise anyone who is looking for a good toning shoe to buy them.

I bought these on sale in the states this year (Easter long weekend) and have been wearing them daily. They are comfortable cushion wise but ever since wearing them both my inner knees are killing me. Has anyone else experienced this? I was told by a friend that you have to adjust to walking on your outter side of your feet to counter act where the ball alignment is on the shoe, this is apparently how you get the workout? Anyone know more about this? Thanks

May 25, 2011 at 9:16 pm
(575) Brooke says:

I believe they work especially after exericising. I try to run daily as long as weather permits. I ran in the reebok easytones and I don’t think I have ever been so sore from running in my life and I usually run about 3 miles. I only ran a mile and half because I hadn’t ran recently, but it feels like I ran more. My calves and thighs are so tight and its going on three days. I didn’t really notice any tightness in my glutes though.

(577) Debra B. says:

I bought these shoes a little over a year ago for use during my 12 hour nursing shift. Within a week, my toes would tingle and hurt… the shoes were not too tight either. Unfortunately because I paid so much for them, I kept using them, and within 3 months I noticed my right knee hurting when it was flexed in a certain position. (The tingling in my feet would happen intermittantly when I walked for long periods during my shift) I stopped using the shoe, the tingling problem went away immediatly, but the knee problem persisted, and I have finally had to get a knee injection from a developing bursitis. I am a healthy, normal weight person… I don’t like to speculate, but I think these shoes contributed to a bad knee…. just saying. :(

I have heard some good things about them. I worked at sportchek where I sold them for some time. After learning about them there and on this website http://www.easytoneapparel.com I think theyre are a pretty cool looking, and designed shoe.

They even came out with a mens shoe!

June 21, 2011 at 5:53 pm
(579) Teagan says:

I like the shoes and I do agree in not paying 119 for them. I went to Marshalls in Holbrook, NY apart of the chain with TJMaxx and found them for 30.00!! So I would suggest in keeping an eye on those stores and you might find a huge deal like the ones I purchased.

I bought a pair of the easytones a few months ago. I dont wear them all the time but i have noticed when i do i get terrible back and knee pain. I paid over €80 for these and i cant wear them.
The pain i am in is unbeliveable and i can hardly walk and sleep is hard as well. I have stopped wearing them now and my back is so much better and my knee as well.

i would not recommend people to buy these at all. Just buy yourself a good pair of trainers.

(581) Norma says:

I am an avid runner and do it everyday and have wanted to try these shoes for quite some time now. About a month ago I saw them on sale and decided to buy them. Well I’m glad I did! As far as the above mentioned claims about what the shoe is supposed to do go I can’t really comment because I’m not trying to lose weight but what I can say is that it is an AWESOME running shoe. The pads at the ball of the foot serve almost as your own personal feet shock absorbers and the net at the top of the shoe help with airing the foot. I would definitely recommend this as a running shoe. As far as weight loss is concerned I would definately hit the gym instead.

I just got some last week and wear them around the house during the day until our 110 degree heat breaks and I can handle going outside to walk. I only paid $20.00 for mine!! Hibbett’s had a deal going on that if you paid full price for a shoe you got a red sticker for half price and the Reeboks were on sale for $39.99 :) I have been wanting a pair of easy tones for a while now just never wanted to pay the full price for them. I was skeptical but I have been able to tell a difference in just walking around my house so I know they will definitely work when I am able to get out and able to walk a good distance. Oh and as for the stability I am the most clumsy person alive and I haven’t fell yet walking in them so I think most everyone can manage ;)

i’m starting college in the fall at a major university in my state (UGA). i will be making treks across the large campus five days a week, and i was wondering if these shoes would make this easier. i am not looking to lose weight, i am a runner and like doing so, but i would like to benefit from the supposed toning of this shoe. should i try these out, or just get another shoe designed for walking minus the toning?

GET THEM! I recently got a pair on close out from Footlocker for 29.99. They have performed so well in my daily P90X workouts that I now wear them everywhere. They WILL make you work different leg muscles… so make sure you are reasonably fit if you are going to buy them. An incredibly comfortable show @ an incredible price!

I know where you can get a pair of easy tones for less than $30 on clearance…I just want to know if they are worth buying?

I only got them because they were 50% off, but I would never have bought them for the full price. But they are very very comfortable

After 8 months of using the Reebok easytone shoes (maybe twice a week) the air chambers busted open. I contacted Reebok and they do not stand by their product. I am an extremely unhappy customer. What a waste of money!

I recently tried these shoes while doing clinincals for a pre-nursing CNA program and they shocked me with how well they worked! Honestly, I lost inches in my legs and doubled my weight loss goal for the week (to 3 lbs). Did NOT expect this! I only bought them because I had to purchase all white tennis shoes at the last minute. I didn’t change anything but the amount of walking, but that took the place of 1-1.5 hour daily medium intensity workouts so I am just THRILLED and continue to wear them!!

My daughter is on her 2nd pair of these shoes. The first pair lasted about 8 months and the air chamber deflated. She took them back to the store where I had bought them, with our receipt and they gave her a new pair. The sales person said told her that they had a 1 year warranty. She just called me, she’s at college, and said the same thing happened again. She’s going to talk to them and see what else can be done. Maybe Sketchers instead. We bought these at Younkers department store. Maybe try contacting the store where you purchased them.

Anyone heard of Tibo? My friend got it somewhere. It looks good and is dust/moisture/impact proof. It’s definitely easy to use and as I understand it’s quite affordable too, but… I think they made a mistake when they decided to market it is as a motorcycle gps. Its mount won’t fit many bikes, it won’t connect to the phone, as there’s no lock… Amazon doesn’t have it. Any thoughts on it?

I walk my two female 6 year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi doggies every morning for 30-45 minutes…I walk for 1 HOUR around 3pm with the 8 month old baby girl that I take care of everyday (I am a full~time Nanny/Housekeeper)…then I walk my Corgi girls again around 9PM every night for about 30-45 minutes. I WALK A LOT !!! I have 2 pairs of the Reebok Easy Tone shoes (one all white & one grey with aqua blue) and I alternate them everyday.
* I have always been thin & fit. But, now that I am 42 years old my metabolism has slowed down…I have a little pouch on my tummy, my bumm & inner thighs got a little bigger and I have a tiny bit of some yucky cottage cheese looking cellulite. Even thin women can lose their firmness with AGE and/or change in lifestyle. I have always had a very tone body until I turned 30 ! I am still thin…I am just NOT AS TONE/FIRM/RIPPED as I used to be. These shoes make your legs and bumm burn a little (good burn !) when you walk. They have helped me drop 1 pant size (I am back to a size 3) and my cellulite is going away, my legs are getting more firm and my abs are getting firmer and defined. They lift the bum and help define the legs and because we are walking on a ball…they actually work the abs (in my opinion) because they force you to correct your posture.

These shoes are awesome !

I use them when I do Zumba also 2x/a/week also.

I love these shoes. My boyfriend bought the easy toners for me about two months ago from a footlocker outlet for $50… They do work those extra muscles and my butt is lifted and thighs are really toned.. I wear them whenever I workout or go walking somewhere.. He said this was one of his best investment. He loves how it’s shaping of my body.

I bought my EasyTone Reeboks at a thrift store, almost brand new for $8.80…and I tell you my feet barely ache when I’m on my feet at work for 8-10 hrs. I work at Walgreens and I am constantly on my feet and moving around. I have a condition where the muscles in my legs are too tight and they rub away at my bones…great I know. But these are the first set of shoes that I bought that don’t leave my feet (especially heels) hurting at the end of the night. I did use them at the gym for about 3 months and I stopped because I needed them for work more. They take a few days to get used to because you feel taller and rocky but now I go up and down ladders, ride my bike, and use during work hours. I am in the market for a new pair because unfortunately I wore them out…things don’t last like they used too. I did get all and more use out of them and I noticed that Reebok has come out with more styles and colors. Excited to shop for my next pair….or maybe too :)

My wife bought easy tone shoes in India for Rs.8,000 which is about US $150 (as per today’s conversion rate when the US dollar is pretty strong otherwise the day they were bought the conversion was turning out to be $180). That is a whole lot of money. Personally I never buy branded shoes in India specially of Nike, Adidas and Reebok. I think they are a complete rip off. The quality of the shoes is poor when you compare the quality to the shoes being sold in US.

As I expected the shoes have gone bust in 9 months. Mind you the shoes were rarely worn in a tough environment. I mean they were rarely used when exercising and most of the time were used at work which involved sitting on a computer and walking around on normal tiled floors The sole has gone bust and the so called “blurbs” have disappeared. I’m disappointed. The same company sells shoes in US which last for a longer specially given the price they were charging. But once again the foreign company sports shoe makers have disappointed.

In India we have impotent political leaders who allow big MNC’s to rip off people and slowly the masses are becoming impotent too. It is time that the Indian masses got together and started protesting against these companies who are taking consumers for a ride otherwise this will continue to happen.

The objective of this tirade is to advise people not to buy these shoes if you are in India. I definitely do not recommend them.

It’s genuinely very complicated in this full of activity life to listen news on Television, thus I only use world wide web for that purpose, and take the most recent information.

I was looking for sneakers and found these easy tone in grey and pink and orange. I walk a lot and my. Old pumas needed a break and these sneakers give me support. Just got them and so far they feel great. Believe it or not but i got them for 26.00 bucks, In the box brand new. There was just two left. I wouldn’t spend that much for sneakers if I can get them cheaper. I love them.
