ix weeks. Despite wearing the case and undergoing physical therapy, however, the plaintiff still reportedly has regular pain in and impaired use of her right foot.

Skechers Lawsuit Settlement: $40 Million Awarded to Consumers

While this Skechers lawsuit alleges that Shape-Ups’ defective design caused the plaintiff’s serious injuries, it also contends that Skechers’ claims about the alleged health benefits of Shape-Ups have not been backed up by reliable scientific research. In fact, an independent study conducted by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) at the University of Wisconsin found that, “there is simply no evidence to support the claims that these shoes will help wearers exercise more intensely, burn more calories or improve muscle strength and tone.” [acefitness.org/getfit/studies/toningshoes072010.pdf June 2010]

Charges that Skechers’ has overrepresented the safety and effectiveness of Shape-Ups’ have been the basis of thousands of lawsuits and have cost Skechers millions in settlements to consumers throughout the U.S. In fact, in May 2013, a federal judge approved a $40 million Skechers class-action settlement based on more than 500,000 consumer claims that Skechers intentionally misrepresented the health benefits of Shape-Ups in its advertising. In his ruling, the judge also ordered Skechers to stop running misleading ads for its toning shoes.
