Fitflops - is there any truth in their claim to tone the leg muscles?
I saw a pair of yellow fitflop trainers in a magazine today and I thought they're quite nice, (honestly, better than they sound, funky, retro yellow). Anyway, I'm not overweight so I'm not asking out of some lazy desire for a quick fix, I'm just wondering if I'm being too cynical assuming it's all hokey.
Does anybody seriously believe that those fitflops tone their muscles any more than any other trainer or boot or flip flop?
I wear the reebok version, slender tone I think they're called, to work, am on my third pair now, work 12 hour shifts and can be on my feet all that time. For the first week I wore them I sort of felt it in my bum and calves but I wear them because they are incredibly comfortable and have good arch support (prone to plantar fasciitis and over-pronation at my ankles)
I've a huge ass for the size of me. all fat stored is on my arse. none on chest. So maybe I should give them a whirl. I really like those yellow ones I saw them in a magazine yesterday and they would be lovely with dark jeans. I looked on the fitflop website and they're not on it though! I looked at the reeobok site too, their version called easytone I think.
