So, the big question...
Do Reebok EasyTone trainers really work?
I have to admit I was sceptical. The idea of a shoe toning your legs and backside by forcing you to balance sounded odd.
I was sent a pair of Reebok EasyTone shoes (£75), some Reebok sports kit and a bag to put it all in. I nervously tried the shoes on, worried that I wouldn't be able to walk in them. They are surprisingly comfortable and of course you can walk in them.
I was tempted to take photographs before and after I took part in the Reebok EasyTone trial, but I didn't. I didn't think the internet really needed pictures of my legs and backside!
I didn't notice a difference in the way I looked, but I noticed a huge difference in the way I felt. You can feel the muscles in your legs and bum working while you're walking. It's a good feeling. I regularly walked several miles in them, pushing a buggy with one toddler in and another on the buggy board. I felt like I'd had a workout by the time I got home.
I found my Reebok EasyTones extremely comfortable. They look like serious trainers too. What I mean by this is - and this may shock you - I'm not what you would call 'sporty'. I felt like this was my workout and I was wearing the trainers to prove it! For someone like me whose only exercise is pushing a buggy these trainers are perfect, you get doubly rewarded for your efforts.
You can read more about Reebok EasyTones on their website. They also have EasyTone flip flops, gym shoes and running shoes.
So do they work?
I think they do and for this reason they get the coveted Baby Baby Thumbs Up
