Reebok To Refund Customers $25 Million Due To False Claims That "EasyTones" Work

September 29, 2011 by Charlotte Steinway

Assuming this was taken prior to Kim’s deal with Sketchers Shape Ups..

Yesterday wasn’t the best day for Reebok. The athletic company found out that they owe $25 million in customer refunds because they “deceptively advertised that [their] “toning shoes” would provide extra tone and strength to leg and buttock muscles,” according to WWD. The lawsuit comes as quite the burden to Reebok, seeing as their Easytone sneakers have been one of the brand’s top-sellers for years now. No word as of yet on where Sketchers Shape-Ups and Fitflops fit in the picture..

Purchasers of Reebok toning shoes can request a refund through the settlement using this Refund Request Form.

In order to participate, you must have to have purchased the toning shoes on or after December 5, 2008. The refund applies to the following Reebok toning products:

  • EasyTone
  • EasyTone Flip
  • RunTone
  • TrainTone
  • JumpTone
  • SimplyTone
  • SlimTone
  • EasyTone Capri
  • EasyTone Pants
  • EasyTone Shorts
  • EasyTone Long Bra Top
  • EasyTone Sleeveless Shirt
  • EasyTone Short Sleeve Top

Better yet, is anyone actually surprised by this? This is like someone suing the “Ab Belt” because they wore it laying down on a couch during an entire season of Pretty Little Liars and didn’t immediately see results.
