CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Reebok and Adidas on behalf of individuals who have purchased the product EasyTone footwear and RunTone running shoes (“Toning Shoes”).
The class action involves the deceptive, misleading, false, and unfair advertising of EasyTone and RunTone Toning Shoes’ ability to:
- tone and strengthen key leg muscles while walking, and
- tone and strengthen the glutes (28%), thighs (11%), and calves (11%) muscles by a specific percentage more than walking in a regular shoe.
In fact, the only independent and reliable scientific study on the subject demonstrated that there is no evidence to support the claims that Toning Shoes will help wearers exercise more intensely, burn more calories or improve muscle strength and tone;
As a result, consumers were induced into purchasing Toning Shoes that do not live up to their promised results, thereby causing them economic damages equal to the purchase price of these products.
