Address to submit a claim form (REQUIRED):
Details: The Reebok EasyTone class action lawsuit settlement will resolve an FTC complaint that Reebok made unsupported advertising claims that walking in its EasyTone shoes and running in its RunTone running shoes will strengthen and tone key leg and buttock muscles more than regular shoes.
The class action lawsuit took aim at Reebok’s specific advertising claims that walking in EasyTone footwear had been proven to lead to 28 percent more strength and tone in the buttock muscles, 11 percent more strength and tone in the hamstring muscles, and 11 percent more strength and tone in the calf muscles than regular walking shoes.
Under the Reebok EasyTone class action settlement, Reebok is barred from:
— Making claims that toning shoes and other toning apparel are effective in strengthening muscles, or that using the footwear will result in a specific percentage or amount of muscle toning or strengthening, unless the claims are true and backed by scientific evidence;
— Making any health or fitness-related efficacy claims for toning shoes and other toning apparel unless the claims are true and backed by scientific evidence; and
— Misrepresenting any tests, studies, or research results regarding toning shoes and other toning apparel.
The Reebok EasyTone settlement will also provide refunds to consumers who purchased EasyTone shoes (including EasyTone Flip, RunTone, TrainTone, JumpTone, SimplyTone and SlimTone) and EasyTone apparel (including EasyTone Capri, Pants, Shorts, Long Bra Top, Sleeveless Shirt and Short Sleeve Top) from December 5, 2008 through October 12, 2011.
Class Members of the Reebok EasyTone class action settlement can receive $50 for each pair of eligible shoes, $40 for each EasyTone Capri and EasyTone Pants purchased, and $25 for each EasyTone Sleeveless Shirt, Long Bra Top and Short Sleeve Top purchased. These amounts could be more (up to double!) or less, depending on how many eligible claims are paid out.
No proof of purchase is necessary to file a claim unless you’re submitting a refund request of more than $200. However, you will have to sign under penalty of perjury that you actually purchased the products you’re claiming a refund for, so do not lie about the amount you purchased.
