62 Skechers Lawsuits Filed By Wright & Schulte LLC Allege Design of Skechers Shape-Ups Resulted in Serious Injuries
Date:11/9/2013

ture of the same (Case BC-520995 Superior Court of California - County of Los Angeles).

Another plaintiff from Illinois suffered a fracture of her right humerus when her ankle over-pronated, allegedly while she was wearing Skechers (Case BC-520995 Superior Court of California - County of Los Angeles). And finally, other plaintiffs claim to have suffered a number of serious injuries including a North Carolina woman who sustained a fractured elbow, three fractured ribs and a broken jaw, allegedly due to Skechers. (Case 3:13-cv-00894-TBR). Meanwhile, a Virginia woman suffered three broken ribs and a punctured lung, allegedly in a Skechers Shape-Ups fall. (Case 3:13-cv-00892-TBR)

According to all of these Skechers lawsuits, the manufacturer of Skechers Shape-Ups allegedly marketed the toning shoes by touting their purported ability to enable a user to “Shape Up While You Walk,” and “Get in Shape without Setting Foot in a Gym.” However, a study conducted by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) in 2010 raised serious questions about the efficacy and safety of toning shoes like Skechers Shape-Ups. By 2011, Consumer Reports had revealed that Skechers Shape-Ups and similar shoes had been the subject of more injury complaints than any other product in its database.

[consumerreports.org/cro/news/2011/05/are-toning-shoes-unsafe-reports-of-injuries-raise-concern/index.htm, Consumer Reports, May 2011]

In May 2012, the manufacturer of Skechers Shape-Ups agreed to pay $40 million to settle charges with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) that it had made unfounded claims that Shape-Ups would help people lose weight, and strengthen and tone their buttocks, legs and abdominal muscles. While the settlement provided consumers with refunds for the purchase of their shoes, it did not include compensation for any personal injuries allegedly caused by Skechers Shape-Ups.
