Skechers Lawsuit Filed By Wright & Schulte on Behalf of Iowa Woman Who Suffered Fractured Ankle Allegedly Due to Wearing Skechers Shape-Ups
Date:8/1/2013

in May 2011 after seeing advertisements that purported numerous health benefits from wearing the shoes. In those ads, Skechers claims that wearing the shoes can improve muscle tone in the abs, buttocks, and legs and can help wearers of the shoes get in shape without having to go to a gym.

According to the Skechers injury lawsuit, the woman was walking on a flat surface when without warning, the Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoes pronated inward, causing her to fall and her right ankle to collapse, resulting in excruciating pain. The plaintiff was seen at a local emergency room where x-rays showed a fracture of her right ankle. The plaintiff was referred to an orthopedic surgeon who informed her that she required a cast. The plaintiff had to wear the cast for six weeks, during which time she was unable to work.

The Skechers lawsuit also contends that the shoes provide no more health benefits then regular walking and athletic shoes. In fact, according to the lawsuit, the American Council on Exercise 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/getf
