Toning Shoe Injuries Discussed on Good Morning AmericaPosted on Mar 04, 2011
Holly Ward, 38, is suing the sneaker giant claiming that her pair of Shape-ups, which have a distinctive round sole designed to mimic walking on sand, caused her to develop stress fractures in both of her hips. Ms. Ward claims that she now has pins in her hips and is required to attend routine physical therapy sessions.
“The extended use of these shoes has injured me catastrophically,” Ms. Ward said on Good Morning America. “The femoral bone is the strongest bone in the human body and I fractured not one but two of them without being in a car crash or any traumatic incident.”
Skechers’ Shape-ups, which have been endorsed by celebrities, such as reality star Kim Kardashian and former NFL quarterback Joe Montana, have been advertised as being able to help you get in shape just by walking and able to reduce pain.
