Just in time for Summer, all those toning sneakers have evolved into seasonal sandals. Essentially, they are slightly unstable flip-flops that force you to work a little bit harder with every step, even though fitness experts question if working harder actually means better. Earlier this month, I received three different brands of toning flip-flops and have been testing them all out as I go about my daily routine. Here is my unscientific impression on these three sandals.
- Skechers Tone-Ups
- Price: $49
- Claim: "Burn more calories, tones muscles, improve posture"
- Looks: Thick sole gives it the appearance of a regular flip-flop on steroids. The sequins were a bigger hit with my young daughters than with me.
- Feel: Cushioned flip-flop, comfy, and easy to walk in
- Verdict: I found the Tone-Ups to be quite comfortable, considerably more so than the regular flip-flops due to the thick sole. You can feel the roll bar action of the sole, which makes the shoe unstable, very slightly. The shoes were easy to walk and move in. I am not sure I felt them doing much extra work on my lower legs though.

In a sea of words, a title like "Make Your Boobs Jealous!" really jumps out at you — something I can attest to after coming across these new ads for Reebok EasyTone.
If these shoes do what Reebok claims, the shoes themselves seem pretty neat — balance pods create natural instability in your step, which forces muscles to adapt and encourages toning in the butt, legs, and thighs. So far, so good, but as my buddy Très points out, the ads focus mostly on two talking breasts!
