This entry is Part 3 of a multi-part review of Reebok's new EasyTone sneakers. Read Part 1 to learn more about the science behind EasyTone and my initial reactions to this new sneaker; Read Part 2 to learn about my experiences wearing EasyTone multiple times.

It's been a little over a month since I first strapped on my new Reebok EasyTone sneakers and I'm ready to deliver a verdict. I have to admit, I didn't get a chance to wear my EasyTone sneakers as much as I would have liked over the past month. The weather here in the Bay Area is notoriously unpredictable this time of year-- one weekend it was insanely hot, the next pouring rain-- so my weekend walks were on hold for a while. But, I still got in several long walks and a few shorter strolls.

So, do I now have instant thighs of steel? Of course not. But, I have do have the reasonable hope of more toned legs and a tighter behind in less time. That's saying a lot. The feeling of more engagement in my legs, thighs and butt while walking in Reebok's EasyTone sneakers was unmistakable and distinct. I know that my lower half was working harder with each step. And, because of that, I feel like it was well worth it to wear my EasyTone's in place of regular walking shoes.

At the end of the day, I'm glad I gave Reebok's EasyTone sneakers a try. Since my busy schedule and seemingly never ending days leave very little time for working out, I rely on my love of walking to keep me fit and healthy. EasyTone sneakers are an easy way to make the most of each step without adding anything difficult or time-consuming to my routine. I'll definitely keep using Reebok EasyTone sneakers each time I go walking-- now that I know they exist I'd feel like I was totally slacking if I went walking without them!
