FTC Says Those Reebok "Butt Shoes" Don't Do Anything For Your Butt

You know those Reebok butt shoes ads that aggressively shove perfectly shaped 2-D butts in your face on the subway and in magazines? Those tanned and toned ladies wearing nothing but Reekboks and underwear in public with butts that made your own butts a little sad and floppy-feeling? Those shoes are fake! Ha-ha! The FTC is fining Reekbok $25 million to offer consumers who were fooled into buying the EasyTone shoes refunds. Now, everyone put on their pants and take off your butt shoes—you've got $60 to collect!
