The choice was fairly easy. My BFF had recommended the Easy Tones shoe to me and while researching the product I cam upon the Run Tones. Run tones are, of course, for running and training as opposed to just walking. I am looking forward to getting to the point where I can run. This may happen around 200 lbs or when I can get a decent exercise bra in my size so I don't knock myself out. At any rate, that is one of the reasons I chose to get Run Tones instead of Easy Tones. Another reason is that the uppers are mesh which allow air flow and reduce sweating. I wish I could get steel toes for hubby with that little perk so that we don't all turn green and gasp for oxygen when he takes off his work shoes at the end of the day. Anyhow, it's almost as good as being barefoot!
I don't understand all of the technology behind it, but the shoes have these air pockets in them that help you to work out and tone leg and butt muscles as you walk. You can feel it after you take off the shoes. Stretching is important after a brisk 2-mile walk. You can REALLY feel it the next day.
If you don't see my posting for a while it's because my hot new b-donk has attracted so much attention that I can't get to the commputer. No worries - I'll be happy.
