Reebok takes kick in the ass over claims about butt-toning shoe

Tripping over proof of usefulness.

As it turns out, surprising to only those who guzzle fitness trends like they do each version of Gatorade, Reebok’s butt-toning RunTone and EasyTone shoes and related fitness products don’t exactly do what they claim to do: tone your muscles as you walk back and forth from the fridge. In fact, they don’t even help you do that. Reebok has agreed to pay $25 million to settle with customers.

I hate to say it, but the barefoot running folks will be next to hear this kind of news …

Yet, they remain for sale.
