Skechers Lawsuit Filed by Wright & Schulte on Behalf of Indiana Woman Alleges the Defective Design of Shape-Ups Caused Multiple Foot Fractures
Date:9/6/2013

originally purchased Shape-Ups due to the alleged health benefits touted in the various ads for these toning shoes. Specifically, while Skechers ads claimed that wearing these shoes could improve muscle tone in the legs, buttocks and abdominal muscles, these ads also alleged that regularly wearing Shape-Ups could help consumers improve their circulation and posture.

However, as the complaint contends, Skechers’ claims about Shape-Ups’ health benefits have not been validated 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.” (http://www.acefitness.org/getfit/studies/toningshoes072010.pdf) (June 2010)

Allegations that Skechers’ has overrepresented the safety and effectiveness of Shape-Ups’ have spurred 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 settlement in a Skechers class-action lawsuit 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.
