To my readers, fans, and friends, I am writing this post to let you know that I am back to blogging and keeping you updated about 34 Minutes shoes. I have been busy behind the scenes working with factories, technicians, designers, web masters, photographers, advertising execs, writers, editors, consultants, PR representatives, stylists, and all of the other people who help to get a new brand up and running.

Now that we are up and running with our new styles coming to a store near you very shortly (and even some online stores too!), I will be posting updates of new styles, new collections, tradeshows, exhibits, sales, speaking engangements, trunk shows, etc.

For example, here is a sneak peek of one of our new styles, The Venus

Reebok & The 25 Million Dollar ‘Toning’ Shoes

Reebok EASY TONE(2009)

As you may or may not have heard, this week the Federal Trade Commission has ruled that Reebok has to reimburse its customers $25 million for deceptive advertising for EasyTone and RunTone shoes, according to MSNBC.com. I just have to add that I have been telling my patients, friends, and readers this for months: if you want a ‘toned’ butt or legs, you have to actually exercise. A pair of shoes cannot do the work for you! Countless patients have come into my office with these shoes (as well as Skechers Shape-Ups and other toning shoes), asking me what I think of them. Well, there you go. That’s what I think of them.

The Federal Trade Commission states that Reebok could not support specific claims made in ads that wearing EasyTone shoes resulted in “28 percent more strength and tone in the buttock muscles, 11 percent more strength and tone in the hamstring muscles, and 11 percent more strength and tone in the calf muscles than regular walking shoes.”

The settlement bars Reebok from making claims that its shoes are effective in toning or strengthening without supporting scientific evidence. Reebok has discontinued ads that contain the claims and has asked stores to remove offending signs and displays.

If you want a refund for EasyTone shoes, just fill out the application at http://reeboksettlement.com/FTC. You will get the refunds either directly from the Federal Trade Commission or through a court-approved, class action lawsuit. The amount of refunds will be determined by a federal judge.
