If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Just ask Reebok.
In response to FTC allegations that Reebok made false claims about the health benefits of its EasyTone shoes, Reebok has agreed to a $25 million settlement to refund purchasers. Anyone who purchased a pair of EasyTone shoes beginning in December 2008 may now apply for a refund through the FTC.
Despite these allegations and this new settlement, Reebok still stands behind its shoes and the EasyTone technology.
