Reebok Easytone Settles $25 Million Dollar Lawsuit
Released a few years ago these tennis shoes claimed to do the following:
1. Reebok claimed increased muscle activation in the gluteus (your butt) of up to 28%.
2. Reebok claimed your calves and hamstrings work 11% harder.
3. Reebok claimed the Easytones will “tone” your legs.
The first time I saw the commercials for these, I actually laughed out loud. Reebok’s claims were simply false. I always secretly made fun of people that believed the claims of Reebok and actually purchased a pair. (Sorry if that means you- doesn’t mean I don’t like you- I just don’t like your shoes!)
Here is what the Federal Trade Commission states on their website.
“The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, charged Reebok with making claims about EasyTone and RunTone shoes that the company couldn’t support. According to the FTC, Reebok claimed that using these products would strengthen and tone leg and butt muscles. To settle the case, Reebok has agreed to pay $25 million for refunds to people who bought Reebok toning shoes or apparel.”
So if you got duped and actually purchased a pair, contact Reedbok for a refund.
