Turns out wearing a pair of Skechers Shape-ups won't make you a Kardashian -- and the shoe company will pay $40 million to put such suggestions to rest.
Skechers USA will pay that sum to settle charges by the Federal Trade Commission that it couldn't back up claims its Shape-ups toning shoes would help people lose weight and strengthen their butt, leg and stomach muscles.
If you bought a pair, you're now eligible for a refund.
The shoes were endorsed by Kim Kardashian and other celebrities. Consumers could have easily inferred that wearing Shape-ups would give one Kardashian-like contours.
The settlement also involves the company's Resistance Runner, Toners and Tone-ups shoes. Skechers made deceptive claims about those shoes too, the FTC said.
