Skechers Got

Kim Kardashian
doesn't care WHAT the Federal Trade Commission says ... she says Skechers worked for her, and THAT'S why she became the company's pitch person.

Kim made a 1-year deal with the company, which touted Shape-Ups as a shoe that promotes toning and weight loss. The FTC now says the claims are bogus ... that there's no proof the shoes do squat.

But Kim is telling friends and family ... when she signed the original deal, she was a habitual Shape-Ups user and it toned the back of her legs and her considerable ass.

Kim says she signed a 1-year deal that ended in January, but even before the expiration she started to hear about the new research which showed the shoe didn't work, so she stopped promoting it all together.

Even though she wasn't about to promote the shoes for other people to wear, Kim had conflicting feelings about using the product herself.

Kim says she wouldn't endorse the shoe now -- but she's not throwing her Shape-Ups out.  She still has them and might still wear them.

Hope springs eternal.

11:00 AM PDT -- A rep for Skechers tells TMZ, the company stands by its toning claims despite agreeing to pay out $40 million in settlement costs. Under the settlement agreement, the rep says Skechers is still permitted to market  Shape-Ups as a toning shoe.

According to the rep, Skechers only agreed to settle because fighting every single lawsuit would've been really expensive.

Kim the only way to prove you are not lying is to show the only workout you did was walk or run in those shoes. Show you never entered a gym you never had a personal trainer and prove you any workout equipmement such as free weights or machines show the only workout was in those shoes with no other form of excersise what so ever. then we will believe you.

When the hell is she going to cut her crap. Her Q score is a NEGITIVE 53. Beyond horrible. That means Companies and advertisers would not touch kimmy with a 20 foot pole to have her promote let alone endorse their products. That's how much she is publically despised, not trusted. They aren't going to waste thier advertising dollars on her. No company is or has. Who would ever trust a product Kim or Kardashians promote.

Let's be honest. She didn't stop promoting Sketchers, Sketchers replaced Kim with a French Bulldog. That's no joke. Kimmy makes sure they always gets the money up front and bails.


Wonder how her $20million lawsuite against Old Navy/The Gap is going.


Reputable companies won't use her, don't like her. Thank God so we don't have to see her on commercials.
