  • 'In 2009 and 2010, Reebok advertised its EasyTone and RunTone shoes featuring slim, toned models talking up the benefits of the footwear’s special toning soles. The ads claimed that laboratory tests had found that Tone shoes were “proven to work your hamstrings and calves up to 11% harder and tone your butt up to 28% more than regular sneakers … just by walking!” According to the advertisement, the special uneven sole of the shoe forced you to use more muscles when you moved. A US newspaper reported on an investigation that found that the only thing EasyTone shoes actually did was make it uncomfortable to walk. As a result, Reebok was forced to refund more than $25 million in purchases.'

    This is just one of many examples that can be found of potentially misleading information in the corporate or advertising world.

    What are the underlying values shown by Reebok during this campaign?
