I was looking up this shoe on line because I have a pair. I got them about 2 years ago fro T J Maxx. I thought they were great except for one thing...they seemed a little off balance due to the high cushion on the bottom. I thought it was just me not having ever worn a shoe like this before. It is the Reebok Simplytone. It is the one that was part of the recall and class action suit back in 2009. After finding this out I was shocked. All claims were paid out by 2011 and Reebok had to pay millions. I totally missed out on this. The thing I wonder most is why was this shoe still being sold AFTER the class action? I know that the discount outlet stores like Marshalls and TJ Maxx sell things that are past season. I guess these were sitting around in their wharehouse AFTER the lawsuit was over.
The shoes have been okay. I have adjusted to the feeling the high cushion on the sole gives. I have found my balance. I was having some sore leg and foot issues about 5 months ago and they were the most comfortable shoe I have that is soft an cushy. They felt the best when I wore shoes. Now I am not sure what to do with them.
The class action says the shoes are not made properly and actually cause knee and hip issues. I wear them so infrequently that I had not noticed any issues with mine. I guess I will keep them BUT I will be looking for a new pair of athletic shoes in the next two weeks. You just never know! I paid $40 for these shoes. If I had know I could have gotten a voucher for new pair of Reeboks.
