One Outcome of Wearing Skechers Shape-Ups You Didn’t Expect – A Broken Ankle

You open a magazine and see an ad for Skechers Shape-ups. During your favorite prime time television show, a commercial begins to play featuring football star Joe Montana who touts the benefits of using Shape-ups. You take your children to the park and notice mothers wearing these shoes. By now, you start to ask yourself – “what’s the deal with Skechers Shape-ups?” You might even run to the store to grab your own pair.

Skechers Shape-ups are marketed as shoes offering many benefits to consumers. Specifically, these toning shoes are supposed to help you get in shape without having to go to the gym. However, be very cautious about these shoes. You might get more than you bargained for.

There is one outcome of wearing these shoes that you won’t be prepared for, which is a broken ankle.

Why Skechers Shape-ups can result in broken ankles.
These toning shoes are designed to be unstable. They feature a rocker bottom outsole, making the foot move from heel to toe. What this motion does is force the muscles to work to control some of the instability. Yet, this very motion is what is so dangerous for consumers. A simple walk in the park wearing toning shoes can break your ankle.

A broken ankle is nothing to take lightly.
Some consumers have come forward claiming that toning shoes caused them to suffer broken ankles.  Suffering this type of injury can result in a major disruption to your life. Ankle fractures are painful and typically take several weeks to heal. Your injury may require surgery and physical therapy, not to mention a cast. That’s not the outcome you imagined when you laced up those “magic sneakers.”
