Review: Reebok EasyTone Trainers

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




  1. It's great that they are makin more commercial and accessable toning trainers now. I have a pair of MBT's which were over £125 and that was over three years ago. I'm too scared to wear them and walk the soles away because of the cost! Silly I know!

    Good review.
    Take care

  2. Sounds great! I'm rather tempted to purchase a pair of runtones in the hope that it will push me towards joining the local running group! :)

  3. I am hearing nothing but good about these trainers and REALLY want a pair... just need to find the money now :D

  4. Kate, I'd never heard of them before Reebok contacted me! I hope you can get some more wear out of yours x

    Emma, oh my goodness, running! Good for you :-) x

    Nickie, I'm envious of your boots BTW, forgot to say last week! x

  5. reebok pairs was really good, i have mine for 3 years and still its in good form..i got new favourite which is my saucony shoes pair.

  6. I am getting more and more intrigued to try them. I'd much rather have a real workout, of course, but I just never seem to find the time. Not much of an Jane-Fonda-in-your-living-room kinda gal.

  7. Met Mum, I think they're great if you're going to be out walking anyway. You may as well get more of a workout! x
