40 Million Over Toning Shoe Claims,[url=][b]parajumpers vest outlet[/b][/url]

The Federal Trade Commission announced today that the company has agreed to the settlement on charges that it "deceived consumers by making unfounded claims" about its Shape-ups,[url=][b][/b][/url], Resistance Runner, Toners and Tone-ups lines of shoes. Consumers who bought the shoes are entitled to refunds.
"Skechers' unfounded claims went beyond stronger and more toned muscles. The company even made claims about weight loss and cardiovascular health," David Vladeck,[url=][b][/b][/url], director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection, said in a statement. "The FTC's message, for Skechers and other national advertisers,[url=][b]giuseppe zanotti sneakers on sale[/b][/url], is to shape up your substantiation or tone down your claims."

The FTC also alleges that Skechers manipulated and "cherry-picked results" from studies to support their claims. In one case,[url=][b]parajumpers vest[/b][/url], the FTC says Skechers touted the endorsement of chiropractor Dr. Steven Gautreau,[url=][b]giuseppe zanotti men's sneakers for Sale[/b][/url], but did not disclose that Gautreau was married to a Skechers marketng executive and that Skechers paid him to conduct the study,[url=][b]Peuterey outlet[/b][/url], which the FTC alleges did not support the claims in the ad.
"While we vigorously deny the allegations made in these legal proceedings and looked forward to vindicating these claims in court, Skechers could not ignore the exorbitant cost and endless distraction of several years spent defending multiple lawsuits in multiple courts across the country,[url=][b]Roger Vivier on sale online[/b][/url]," David Weinberg, Skechers' chief financial officer,[url=][b]where to buy roger vivier shoes[/b][/url], said in a statement.
The Skechers' settlement comes less than a year after Reebok agreed to pay $25 million to settle charges it misled consumers with false claims about EasyTone walking shoes and RunTone running shoes.
The FTC's settlement with Skechers is part of a broader agreement that resolves an investigation that included the attorney generals from 44 states. Under the settlement Skechers is not allowed to make any claims about its toning shoes involving health or fitness benefits unless they are backed by scientific evidence.
