While wearing a pair of Skechers Shape- up Shoes I was injured as a result of the of the instability of the shoes. I suffered a fall and broke bones in my foot and leg and injured my shoulder which caused me to go thru surgery and a lot of physical therapy. The Skechers are a hazard to have on the market being sold in many stores. Its been almost two years since my injury and I am still in need of a cane to walk with! !! The Shoes should be pulled from the market as they are unsafe for consumer use.

Comment from Skechers USA, Inc. 11/14/2014
We appreciate receiving this and all other information regarding our customers’ use of Skechers shoes, and are sorry to hear that this customer reported a bad experience with one of our products.

As explained in the instructional materials that are enclosed with our product, Shape-ups employ a rocker bottom sole and a soft kinetic wedge that require the wearer to exert additional effort to maintain balance. This additional effort activates muscles in the lower leg. Because Shape-ups operate on the principle of an unstable platform, users are advised to stand up straight, keep their weight centered, place their feet parallel and hip-distance apart, and walk at a comfortable pace, being sure to plant each heel firmly and roll forward on to the toes. Users are further advised to limit their use of Shape-ups to 25-45 minutes per day for the first two weeks of use, and to gradually increase usage time by 5-10 minute increments thereafter and only if comfortable to do so. Shape-ups are intended for low-intensity activities such as standing and walking, and not for running or vigorous sports. Skechers highly recommends consumers follow these and other instructions while using Shape-ups.
