Skechers to pay $40 million settlement
If you are one of those people who are still hugely fat despite buying one of those Skechers fitness shoes, then you’ll love to learn that Skechers has been found to have fibbed about how some of their shoes can help you lose weight and tone flabby buttocks.
The company will have to pony up $40 million to settle charges brought by the Federal Trade Commission. Additionally, consumers who bought the shoes will be eligible for a refund.
So, you not losing weight had nothing to do with the fact that the shoes never came out of the box, but because Skechers’ claim about their soft-soled shoes were found to be bogus. Thankfully, you didn’t waste any time putting them on and taking a walk or jog, or you would have felt even more stupid.
