The Flex Mini® vs. Crocs Tone

Crocs Tone is a special line of shoe from the very popular Crocs shoe company. According to the Crocs Tone website, the shoes provide the benefits of toning with the comfort that consumers have come to expect from Crocs. The website details the technology that goes into Crocs Tone. Evidently, itís all about the patent pending sole of the shoe.

Crocs Tone involves a sculpted outsole that makes for a rocking effect while the wearer walks. The rocking effect is said to stimulate muscle activity that will enhance toning in a way that conventional soled shoes will not. Crocs Tone also involves something called a "toning ring" that is said to provide stability and support. Itís not clear what this ring is, however. And finally, Crocs Tone shoes include a comfortable and lightweight "crocslite" footbed that is advertised as ideal for all day long comfort. Crocs Tone sole is available in the familiar clog format, or in a flat designed specifically for women. The Crocs Tone website suggests the shoes will function as the wearers very own personal trainer. The shoes are available in a variety of color schemes.
