Skechers Shape-Ups Injuries FAQs

What Types of Injuries are Associated with Skechers Shape-Ups Toning Shoes?

Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoe injuries can include:

  • Leg Injury
  • Foot Injury
  • Broken Leg
  • Broken Hip
  • Broken Ankle
  • Trimalleolar Ankle Fracture (this toning shoe injury involves fractures in all three malleoli of the ankle )
  • Dislocated Hip
  • Head Injury
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Ruptured Achilles Tendon

Why are People Who Wear Skechers Prone to Injury?

The unique Skechers Shape-Ups have round soles which produce an unstable gait, similar to walking on an unstable surface, that can cause a wearer to fall and injure themselves.  The instability of a toning shoe can also create posture and gait problems.

How Common are Skechers Shape-Ups Injuries?

It's unclear, but in May 2011, Consumer Reports noted that toning shoes, including Skechers Shape-Ups,
had already been named in more injury reports than any other product in a database it had launched only a few months prior.

I Suffered a Skechers Shape-Up Injury, Can I be Compensated for My Medical Bills and Other Expenses?

Possibly. If you can show that the design of the toning shoes caused your injury, you may be able to receive compensation for your medical bills through a Skechers Shape-Ups lawsuit, as well as reimbursement for lost wages and other damages.

What Should I do with My Skechers Shape-Ups?

By all means keep them.  They may be vital evidence should you choose to pursue a Skechers Shape-Ups lawsuit.

Will I Need My Medical Records?

Absolutely.  Your medical records document your injury, and could very well assist in proving that you were injured because of the way Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoes are designed.

I Don't Have Proof of Purchase for
My Skechers Shape-Ups.  Is That a Problem?

Not necessarily.  If you still have your Skechers Shape-Ups, and your doctor has documented your injuries;
that may be sufficient.

Will Wearing Skechers Shape-Ups Really Help Me
Look Like Kim Kardashian?

That's highly doubtful.  According to Consumer Reports, there's little evidence that Skechers Shape-Ups and similar round-soled toning shoes are more likely than other athletic shoes to promote physical fitness.  As a matter of fact, in 2012, the maker of Skechers Shape-Ups reached a settlement with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to resolve charges that it misled consumers about the physical fitness benefits of the toning shoes.  Skechers has agreed to provide refunds to consumers who purchased the toning shoes, and is barred from making claims about strengthening, weight loss, and other health and fitness-related claims for its toning shoes unless they are true
and backed by scientific evidence.
