Ever seen those stupid looking Skechers Shape-Up shoes that look like boats that Kim Kardashian and Brooke Burke hawked? The ones that claim help people lose weight and strengthen their ass, legs and stomach muscles?
Turns out it doesn’t do any of that because Skechers lied about the clinical studies they conducted. Skechers has now agreed to a $45 million settlement and anyone who bought the shoes can get a refund.
Skechers will dispute the FTC decision and conduct more research on the shoe’s effects. This time their proof will most likely not consist of just photographing Kim Kardashian wearing a pair and then pointing at her ass yelling, “See? It works! I told you!”
