Walking is one of the easiest ways to shed those extra pounds. You can experience a good workout with just about any pair of sneakers but toning sneakers are one of the hottest fitness trends these days. Skechers has pretty much dominated the toning sneaker industry with their popular Shape-ups (We gave them two thumbs up. See our Skechers review) and Tone-ups. Other brands like Reebok and New Balance have jumped on the bandwagon as well with sleeker designs. These toning sneakers can actually help provide a better overall workout and can tone your legs and glutes. Some brands even promise to alleviate back pain. With prices starting at $14, now is a great time to invest in a pair to jump start your fitness routine. From New Balance to Dr. Scholl's, here are a few of today's hottest toning sneakers for men and women.
Men's MW850 (starting at $84.95) -- New Balance recently introduced a few stylish toning sneakers including these lightweight 850's. This athletic sneaker is designed with balance board technology that encourages muscle activation in the glutes, quads, hamstrings and calves. Not a fan of the blue and gray pair pictured to the right? Choose from black/gray or white/gray.
Women's WW850 (starting at $84.95) -- The sporty True Balance WW850's also feature the breakthrough balance board technology to provide superior comfort and enhanced toning when you walk. They're available in these additional colors: blue/gray, black/pink/gray, orange/gray, white/silver and gray/black.
