SKECHERS IS SKETCHY!
Have you heard about Skechers Shape-Ups for girls? We all know Kim Kardashian pushes the Shape-Ups for women in the video below, crediting the sneaker with tightening her legs and rear end. That is actually the purpose of this particular line of sneakers – to tone you from the waist down. Now, there is a line of Shape-Ups for girls. The smallest size is 2, which is the shoe size of a typical 7 year old girl. It’s bad enough adult and teenage women in this country obsess over their weight and looks. Do we really have to create products to make little girls who are nowhere near puberty worry about it?
Skechers claims that the purpose of their Shape-Ups line for girls is to promote fitness in kids. In interviews, company spokespeople have said that promoting the sneaker is in line with Michelle Obama’s campaign against childhood obesity. If that is the case, why are there no Shape-Ups for boys? Don’t boys need to stay fit? Or is having a fat ass just a girl problem?
Thanks, Skechers for adding to the brainwashing of the American female. Women and girls are already bombarded with messages every day on TV, in magazines, and movies, that say you are worthless if your body fat percentage is over 4%.
That having being said, this female author is now going to throw out her Skechers and eat a donut.
What do you guys think?
