Reebok Women's Easytone Rush
Advantages: very comfortable to walk in
Disadvantages: not sure about the toning of the muscles
I enjoy walking and going for a run since it's a good exercise and it's better than sitting on my arse watching tele in the evening. I have always learned that it's important to have good shoes especially when you go running. It can prevent a lot of problems in the end, so better spend a little bit extra on your shoes. I found Reebok to be a good brand and trustworthy. They have been around for years and have a lot of experience when it comes to footwear. For that reason I bought these Easytone shoes.
Easystone of Reebok is intended for women who want to get their body back into shape in an easy way. According to Reebok these shoes have a unique technology integrated into the sole of the shoes which should increase your muscle activity. The sole has inbuilt balance pods that create instability with every step you take which helps with toning. It also gives you more comfort while walking.
In the leaflet that comes with the shoes has a picture along with the muscles that are stimulated and thus will become firmer. It highlights the carves and thighs saying they get 11% tighter and the glutes even with 28%. Suppose it's a plus so after now using them for quite a while I'm not that convinced if it actually works. I don't really notice a big difference but it's hard to tell since I do more sports than only walking.
The main reason why I bought these is the comfort. I already heard about these shoes and I have read about the experience from other people who were very positive. Reebok has integrated some smooth fit technology which ensures that you won't experience any irritation or any rubbing during your walking. I have to say that it's very annoying when you start feeling your foot rubbing against the back of the shoe and really makes walking uncomfortable. I have experienced once with other shoes and had to throw them out. Unfortunately it's not something you notice the first 10 minutes you choose the shoes but only later on. With these shoes I have no trouble at all and are still very comfortable even when you walk for a few hours.
I'm very pleased with these shoes as they look good enough to wear during the day (even for a quick run into town) and they are really comfortable. I still doubt the promises when it comes to increasing the muscle activity but that's always something hard to prove. If I was only doing walking and running as a sport, I could probably say if it was true or not, but that's simply not the case. Since they are very comfortable I give them four stars.
