The convex sole design of Sketchers Shape-Ups creates a sense of imbalance not unlike walking on sand. The selling point for this potentially dangerous product is that the instability causes wearers to use additional muscles when wearing the shoes, negating the need to work out to achieve more shapely and toned legs. But this design has caused hundreds of people to fall and suffer. Moreover, there is no scientific evidence that these shoes are even effective in their advertised purpose.
With the help of a proficient product liability law firm, you may be able to recover significant compensation for injuries incurred from use of these shoes, and you should absolutely consider speaking with an attorney.
