If you took Kim Kardashian's word for it, and bought a pair of Skechers to get a curvy backside and great legs, The Federal Trade Commission says that you have a refund coming!

 

 

The Federal Trade Commission has determined that Skechers made "unfounded claims that Shape-Ups would help people lose weight, and strengthen and tone their buttocks, legs and abdominal muscles" it said in a press release. The commission has reached an agreement with the shoe maker that will pay an estimated  40 million dollars in refunds to people who purchased shoes after August 1, 2008.

For more information visit FTC's Skechers refund page, go to the Skechers Settlement page or call the FTC's Skechers Hotline @ 866-325-4186. Apply for a refund on line, or call the FTC hotline to request the necessary forms.
