Nevada will get nearly $83,000 in a national settlement over Skechers’ claims that their fitness shoes helped users shed pounds and tone muscles.
Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto said Wednesday that the state’s portion is part of $40 million settlement with the Federal Trade Commission, which said the company falsely represented that clinical studies backed up its claims about the toning shoes.
The settlement also involves the company’s Resistance Runner, Toners and Tone-ups shoes. Shoe buyers will be eligible for refunds.
