Well, I'm afraid to say I think I'm going to have to finally bite the bullet and get a new pair. Really at this point there isn't any other choice. So, the need for a new pair of gym shoes leaves me with only one question, what kind of shoe should I get? See, the thing is I know nothing about athletic shoes, nothing. Ask me about a bootie, heel, wedge or sandal, and I could rattle off a few great selections at every price point, but a sneaker... let's just say that is not my area of expertise (hence the wearing of the same shoe for 8 years.)
In my search for a shoe to last me the next decade I have found myself drawn to the Reebok Reetone/ Easytone. Correction, I have found myself drawn to the picture of the woman who is wearing the somewhat ugly Reeboks. I mean, a shoe that promises to tone your tush while you walk and work out, hell for that I'd pay almost anything. I figured that this must be one of those "too good to be true things," so I asked my husband for his medical opinion. His response was two fold, 1) apparently they don't teach this kind of stuff in medical school (who knew?) and 2) a sneaker is not going to give me the tush that I dream of, so I should just get a normal shoe.
I would like to believe him, but I have two pieces of evidence that beg to differ.

I mean she wears them... and just look at her ass.
I'm still not completely sold on them, I think it's the fact that they are just so ugly and bulky that is holding me back, but I wonder if any of you readers out there have tried them. Are they really too good to be true? Also, if any of you have a shoe that you love and can recommend, please let me know,*** I really am clueless when it comes to things in this shoe (and ass) department.

** that breaks down to .045 cents a wear... pretty impressive.
