The lawsuit claims that Skechers’ rocker-bottomed shoes have dangerous and unreasonably high levels of lead. The company says that it exercised reasonable care during the design, manufacturing, and testing of its product, but failed to do so. The company has since been sued several times over the matter and has agreed to pay $40 million to consumers. This settlement comes after the company settled with Reebok for $25 million.
The suit also states that Skechers should have provided more detailed information to consumers about the dangers of their shoes.
The company says that it is confident in its products, and has a long-term sales plan. However, some people believe that this product is worth the money. For instance, one woman, Debbie Hadley, filed a lawsuit against Skechers in December, alleging that the brand’s toning shoes caused her injuries. Her injuries included a shattered tibia and fractures in two lower legs. She was wearing the Shape-ups when she fell from her back porch steps.
A separate Skechers lawsuit outlines the alleged dangers of the shape-up shoes. The woman who filed the lawsuit in December cites multiple injuries caused by her shoes. Her injuries included two lower leg fractures, a tear in her Achilles tendon, and a sprained ankle. She suffered a fracture of her tibia after she slipped on her back porch steps while wearing the shape-ups. She underwent invasive surgery to repair her right tibia.
The plaintiffs in the Skechers shape-up lawsuit claim that the firm deceived consumers by marketing their shoes as toning exercises.
The Shape-ups were marketed with Kim Kardashian and Brooke Burke, who later went on to sell the toning footwear for hundreds of dollars. They were sold to consumers via advertisements and other means. While the plaintiffs’ claims were overly vague and unreliable, they still made the shoes available to the public.
The Skechers shape-up lawsuit alleges that the firm did not warn consumers that the shoes caused injuries and may even damage their health. The company’s marketing tactics were designed to mislead consumers about the health benefits of its shoes, but the results were inconsistent and not proven. The company did not disclose any details about the cause of the injury. Consequently, the plaintiffs’ attorneys hope to get a settlement in the case that will resolve the claims.
The Skechers shape-up lawsuit claims that the company used misleading advertisements to advertise their products.
The shoe company had falsely claimed that the shoe’s curved soles would tone the muscles in the feet. The FTC claimed that these claims were misleading and deceptive. In addition, the lawsuits claim that the shoes induced severe injuries to the wearer. They had a tendency to swell up, which caused the consumer to suffer from an injury.
The Skechers shape-up lawsuit was filed by Debbie Hadley, a California woman who says the shoes caused her injuries. She suffered two lower leg fractures, a torn Achilles tendon, and a shattered tibia after a fall on her back porch while wearing her Shape-ups. She is now required to undergo invasive surgery to repair her right tibia.
The lawsuit claims that Skechers lied about the shoes’ health benefits.
Among the allegations in the shape-up lawsuit are that the bottom sole of the Shape-up shoes was unstable, causing a woman to slip and fall on her tibia. The shape-up shoes were popular with consumers and sold millions of pairs. The shoes were endorsed by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, and the lawsuits allege that the footwear was unreasonably unstable and shifted the woman’s walking pattern, altering her normal gait.
A recent study by Skechers found that the resistance runner shoe had health benefits. Its study showed a 71 percent increase in gluteus maximus muscle activation. Unfortunately, this study was based on one test subject. The FTC found fault with the company’s use of these findings in their ads. While the company has agreed to pay the damages and settle the lawsuit, they say they will continue to pursue further research on shape ups and other fitness-related injuries.
