You may have heard that Skechers USA, Inc. recently reached a settlement with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to pay $40 million in order to resolve its deceptive health and fitness claims regarding its Shape-Ups toning shoes. The agreement that was reached will partially refund you and other consumers the purchase price of your Shape-Ups, Tone-Ups, and Resistance Runners.
This agreement reimburses those who purchased Skechers’ toning shoes and prohibits the company from making any health and fitness benefit claims related to their shoes in the future unless the claims are based on scientific evidence. It is important to note that this agreement does not address injuries that many consumers have suffered by wearing Skechers Shape-Ups.
Reasons to File a Toning Shoe Lawsuit
The main reason to file a Shape-Ups lawsuit against Skechers is if you suffered injuries while wearing their toning shoes. Current lawsuits regarding severe lateral instability and toning shoe injuries in Kentucky are pending after the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation consolidated all Skechers toning shoe injury lawsuits to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky in Louisville.
Instability in the ankles from toning shoes have caused lateral knee pain and hip pain in many people; however, those who have actually suffered fractures, dislocations, and other injuries should consider filing a toning shoe lawsuit against Skechers and other manufacturers of toning shoes.
