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 why don't you tell the truth for once, Skechers did not ask you to sign up for another year, otherwise you would have. You always lie. You stand up to what you endorse just to make yourself look better, but we know what kind of person you are so if you think you are fooling us you got to be kidding. You are a liar, just like you lied about your marriage to Kris. There alot more prettier MOVIE STARS that are so much prettier than you that do not have to pose like you do and do not have too so if i were you STOP IT because really , you are so sickening. Believe me i am not jealous. I just can not stand you, i do not know you , only what i have heard, seen and of that i think your so awful that i hope you have a good life but what did to Kris and how you did it just showed what a terrible person you really are and when i seen that picture of you at the lakers game i thought you were a over sexed ugly girl that is dying for attention that i almost felt sorry for. good luck. honestly good luck.
