Walking the Walk

Apparently these shoes are a lie. These are Reebok's EasyTone tennis shoes. They claim that you can tone different parts of your body just by walking! Initially, many people bought these shoes believing that they would no longer have to do strenuous workouts to achieve the perfect figure, but when people weren't seeing the proper results, they began complaining.

The Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) Consumer Protection Bureau, David Vladeck came out with the quote:

"We did get consumer complaints. We watch TV. We read the newspapers," said Vladeck. "There is no such thing as a no-work, no-sweat way to a fit and healthy body."

 Adidas, which owns Reebok, stated that they will settle with the FTC for $25 million. This money will go to all the people who bought the shoes and didn't see results. Reebok claims that they are only settling because they don't want to go to court.

This just goes to show you that there's no escaping hard work if you want real results.
