In an unbelievable move, Skechers is now marketing and selling its controversial ShapeUps shoes to children? A landmark study by the University of Wisconsin has already established that these shoes do not work as advertised, and several prominent physicians have opined that these shoes could cause serious injuries because they are unstable and they change the way you walk. Is it good for kids to assume these serious health risks by wearing a shoe that has been proven to be nothing more than a marketing gimmick? Three lawsuits filed by the law firm Schachter, Hendy & Johnson have shown the types of injuries that can be caused by these shoes. Why does a preschooler need a shoe that is unstable and causes her to be off balance? This is a new low for Skechers.
