In August of 2010 I bought the Reebock Eazytone Sneakers, About 3 months ago, I began having foot pain. I waited about 10 days, but the pain did not subside so I went to the Dr. X-rays were taken and I was diagnosed with a stress fracture in my 2nd metatarsal. I was put in an orthopaedic boot for a few weeks to let it heal. When I returned for a follow up, I was told to only wear sneakers for a few weeks, just to be sure we had given the fracture enough time to heal. So I started wearing my Reeboks again. Within 2 weeks the pain returned. The doctor put be back in the boot again for another 3 weeks. Again I was told to take it easy, wear nothing but sneakers, and come back for a follow up. So I did. Then I heard the rumors about the toning sneakers causing stress fractures. Not finding any concrete information about it on line, I decided to ask my orthopaedic what he thought on my follow up visit May 18th. Unfortunately, on May 17th I began having pain in my foot again...by the end of the day I couldn't bear weight on it. At my appointment the next morning I was diagnosed with a 3rd stress fracture (on a different metatarsal this time). I didn't bother asking my orthopaedic what he thought because at this point, I'm convinced those shoes are the reason I've spent the better part of the past 3 months in a boot, on crutches, or both. I only wish I had know about this before the trouble began!!!
