Tried and tested: Reebok EasyTone Trainers

Reebok EasyTone trainers

If you’re anything like me, then you’ll love finding a quick and convenient way to improve the way you look and feel. Lucky for us, Reebok are onto it with their EasyTone trainers.

Reebok EasyTone trainers are designed to fit in with your everyday routine and can give your legs and bottom a bit more of a workout.

I headed down to the Reebok Sports Club at Canary Wharf a couple of weeks ago with our style advisor, Cassie, to find out more about the shoes and to give a pair a ‘test walk’ too. After a sneak peek at the new advert and some insider info from Reebok’s marketing manager it was time to slip our feet into a pair.

What they feel like…

The first thing you notice is how soft they are, especially on the back of the heels where there’s extra cushioning. You can also feel yourself sink into the soft cushioning of the air pads with each step you take which is also what makes the muscles work harder. The fit is snug which makes you feel well-supported and the British weather forced us to test ours in the rain but we didn’t end up with wet feet. When you’re wearing them you definitely feel higher off the ground, and although you are a little less stable you won’t wobble.

Here we all are on our walk round the block to give the EasyTone a try.

Cassie’s tips on where to wear them…

  • Walking the dog, if you don’t have one you could always borrow one for the afternoon
  • At the supermarket
  • On the way to and from work
  • When doing the housework or pottering about in the garden
  • Running errands or picking the kids up from school

The best thing is that they fit in with the walking you already do every day. If you increase that and keep an eye on your progress, then you’re sure to see results. A firmer bottom and legs will be yours in no time.

To get started, wear them for 30 minutes at a time building that up to longer walks once your muscles are used to it. They aren’t designed for running as the instability might throw you off balance – we don’t want any twisted ankles ladies! I did wear mine for a good couple of hours when I went for a walk down the Thames and again on a long walk in Richmond Park – just beware that your muscles might get tired out quicker than usual.

What they look like…

Yes these are trainers, but there are loads of styles and colours to choose from which makes it easy to find something to fit your individual style. If trainers aren’t your thing, then you’ll want to keep an eye out for EasyTone flip flops for the summer which have the same great benefits in a style perfect for the sunshine. Take them on holiday to off-set those calorific restaurant meals and cocktails on the beach.

The results…

I think it all depends on how much you exercise already. If you are doing very little then you are definitely going to feel the burn in your legs and bottom after wearing these. If your muscles get a lot of exercise you may feel it slightly less, but it will still be working. Cassie and I are going to keep up our walking regime and we’ll let you know how our beach bodies are getting on soon.

    I read about these in Cosmo at the weekend and thought about them – but i’d want them for training. They’re bringing out a training pair I think? Any idea when?

    Hi Faith, you are indeed correct. We’ll be stocking the new EasyTone styles later this year and we’ll let you know on the blog once they arrive.

  • Nikol Klein

    I have used these shoes for training and even made a workout video for Reebok.

  • Alexandra

    I can’t wait to get a pair. I’m way too lazy for the gym but in serious need of toning up!

    Well done Faith for brining us these fab shoes. They make even the most seasoned walker question their fitness levels once you start using them.

    Will you be stocking the men’s range due to be released soon?

  • susan

    Thank you for the info about these trainers, I wanted to know more about them and whether there was any difference between the various versions other tahn aesthetics and personal choice, so thank you for illuminating the subject :)

    Hi, I’m looking for a pair of easytones that I can wear for dancing, can you recommend a pair. Whilst looking through the Debenhams website, it did recommend a pair of easytone street, however they only started in a size 7!

  • http://blog.debenhams.com Jenny, editor

    Hi Andrea, unfortunately we don’t currently sell the ‘Street’ styles in smaller sizes.

  • chrisina

    Hi I like the idea of easytone trainers. I like to run and walk on the hour long journey from work to home-more walking than jogging at the moment. Would i be better to go for the walking or running easytone trainers?
