Is the design the culprit?
Toning shoes feature a rocker-style bottom designed to mimic walking on the sand. The design creates instability and requires the use of muscles not normally used while walking and can lead to:
• Turned ankles
• Achilles tendon injuries
Popular toning shoes manufacturers
Skechers, the manufacturer of Shape Ups, is one of the leading toning shoes manufacturers. They claim that, "you can get in shape without setting foot in a gym." Other manufactures include:
• New Balance
• Danskin Now
If you have suffered an injury due to wearing a pair of toning shoes, you might be able to hold the manufacturer liable for damages. An experienced toning shoes attorney can help you build your case.
