Trouble for Toning Shoes

New Balance being sued over false promises

A special shoe isn’t enough to give you a perfectly round rear end? Why I am not surprised?

New Balance is about to get a ‘run’ for its money. The sneaker company faces a lawsuit that claims its ‘toning shoes’ don’t do the job. The suit seeks class-action status for customers who believed the shoes would help them slim down — from the ankles up.

Good thing we decided for ourselves last month that Reebok’s pricey new toning apparel was too good to be true, too.  Put that money toward some great classes instead!
