Los Angeles podiatrist discusses Reebok Easytone "body sculpting " shoes

A Los Angeles podiatrist has expressed reservations about some types of "body sculpting" athletic shoes, and says he thinks that Reebok's Easytone shoes are the best of the bunch.

Doctor Podiatrist Dr. Benjamin Nikravesh.told KABC-TV news that some 'step and roll' body sculpting athletic shoes might cause injury when people do activities other than walking. He said Reebok Eastyone shoes were more acceptable because they're "more like a regular shoe" than other brands. Sketchers launched Shape-ups, their body sculpting shoe, late last year.
