Kim Kardashian-Endorsed Sketchers Shape-Up Shoes Costing Company $40 Million in Settlement ChargesSorry ladies, but you won’t be getting a Kim Kardashian or Brooke Burke-shaped rump by simply lacing up a pair of weird-looking Sketchers.

But you will be getting your money back.

According to The Associated Press, the shoe company owes $40 million “to settle charges by the Federal Trade Commission that the footwear company made unfounded claims that its Shape-ups shoes would help people lose weight and strengthen their butt, leg and stomach muscles.”

The shoes were designed with a “rocker” sole that was supposed to promote weight loss and enhance muscle strength. The toning shoes cost about $100. Check out a couple of its ads below.
