Remember when I blogged about the evil of sketchers shape-ups? Well apparently I am not alone. The FTC has stepped in and determined that the studies that Skechers used to toute the benefits of Shape-Ups are flawed and false. I could have told them that! http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504763_162-57436508-10391704/skechers-shape-ups-why-the-ftc-called-companys-studies-deceiving/ Two of the studies were headed by a chiropractor who is married to the Senior VP of Marketing at Skechers. Um, conflict of interest much?
Now, there is a way to possibly get your money back in the settlement. https://skechers.action-settlement.com/ You already know I have submitted my claim!
But that’s not it! I went to an orthopedist and I have to have physical therapy twice a week for at least a month. Thanks Sketchers! I will definitely be getting my money back for those craptastic shoes of tomfoolery.
Have you ever tried those silly things? Ever tried a product that was overhyped or caused you problems?
