I get asked about these all of the time – So here’s the latest:
The American Council on Exercise, along with the Exercise and Health Program at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse, have just completed a study on the effectiveness of those ubiquitous toning shoes that you may have seen people wearing on the street and at the gym.
Well guess what?
In the September issue of the IDEA Fitness Journal, Cedric X. Bryant, Ph.D., and Chief Science Officer of the American Council on Exercise is quoted as saying:
“Toning shoes appear to promise a quick-and-easy fitness solution, which we realize people are always looking for [but] unfortunately, these shoes do not deliver the fitness or muscle toning benefits they claim. Our findings demonstrate that toning shoes are not the magic solution consumers were hoping they would be, and simply do not offer any benefits that people cannot reap through walking, running or exercising in traditional exercise shoes.”
