So what did those girls look like before?

The ones promoting the Reebok tone up shoes. I'm pretty sure that they didn't get that body simply by changing what shoe they were wearing.

Gotta love false advertizing. Implied but not stated, I guess.

I just want to say "Honey, putting those shoes on and sitting on the couch...your ass will still NOT look like that!"

  • Commercials in general are misleading. The woman wearing the toning shoes is a model hired from a professional agency who has probably never worn a pair of those shoes.
    And do we really think multi-millionaire celebrities are wearing Cover Girl cosmetics or dying their hair at home with Garnier or shampooing with Pantene? Puh-leese. But obviously much of the American public is easily swayable enough for this to make a difference to them or they wouldn't keep paying celebs the big bucks to pimp their products.

  • You pretty much need a rocking body to distract from the fact that you are wearing idiotic shape shoes.

  • If only it were true shoes could give a great ass and legs. I'd get a pair next payday. It's like when the Wii fit games came out. Or every diet product. Or anything else that claims if you use that stuff you'll have an amazing body in no time. What you don't notice is the tiny print at the bottom of the screen that says diet and exercise in combination are what helps with getting and keeping a healthy weight.

  • the reebok ones are not idiotic. i have a pair and they are beyond cute. the shape ups are the ugly ones. i wear them at the gym because i do feel i'm getting a better workout while working out and balancing. i definitely felt more of a challenge on the elliptical with the easytones than with regular sneakers. i did/do already have a body like those women though so i can't say their was a change.

  • so true..
    and i hate those commercials.. they make the viewer stare at ass for 30+seconds...
    Really when watching the commercial, do you know anything else that is going on? what color are the walls in the room? or anything. nope. ur just starring at her butt either drooling or you can feel your self-esteem deflate a lil' more..

  • The only positive thing I can say about those shoes is that if they DO get your ass off the couch and walking, then sure they work! Just as much as any other pair of walking shoes. I think they're a waste of money, and definitely making promises try can't keep. They're not magic shoes- they can't make you look like a Victoria's Secret model, ya know? They probably won't even make any more of a difference in calorie burn or muscle tone than any other shoe. I can't believe how many people on here actually are falling for this. But then, many are falling for diet pills and fad diets...
