Kim Kardashian pokes fun at Skechers ‘Shape-ups’ in TikTok with daughter North

Kim Kardashian pokes fun at her past Skechers ‘Shape-Ups’ endorsement in TikTok video with daughter North West… a decade after shoe brand was forced to pay $40M settlement over ‘deceptive advertising’

Kim Kardashian poked fun at her past Skechers ‘Shape-Ups’ endorsement in a TikTok video featuring her daughter North, nine, on Wednesday.

One of the 42-year-old star’s ads, which showed her posing in a pink sports bra with the controversial sneaker hovering beside her, appeared on screen while a soundbite exclaimed: ‘Bro, if you got Sketchers on, get out [of] my face!’

The clip then cuts to Kim and North sitting beside one another on a couch as they mouthed the remainder of the audio, which was bizarre gibberish.

‘Shape-Ups’ were a line of shoes with a unique curved sole that claimed to improve muscle tone in the legs, core and rear end. 

Skechers later faced a class action lawsuit, which suggested health and fitness claims made about their sneakers – including ‘Shape-Ups’ – were ‘unfounded’ and considered ‘false advertising.’

A federal judge ordered the footwear brand to fork over $40million in settlement costs in 2012, though Skechers stood by their claims that ‘Shape-Ups’ were in fact ‘toning’ sneakers.

Kim had a one-year deal with Skechers that was announced in 2010 and wrapped in January 2012.

She promoted the seemingly revolutionary fitness shoe, along with her mother Kris Jenner. 

Kim genuinely believed that ‘Shape-Ups’ effectively toned her legs and famous backside through habitual use, as claimed by TMZ.

But the star distanced herself from the campaign after the FTC’s findings were made public as she did not feel comfortable continuing to promote the shoes to others, the outlet’s source alleged at the time.

Since then, Kim has gone on to produce a slew of successful businesses of her very own, including a shapewear empire, beauty line and a new skincare range — all of which has received rave reviews from her devout fanbase.

Along with her and North’s playful ‘Shape-Ups’ video, the mother-daughter duo also shared a clip of themselves performing a fun TikTok dance at their Hidden Hills home.

In it, Kim and North stood side-by-side as they followed the lyrics of Kai Cenat’s viral hit ‘I Don’t Care.’

Kim flashed her chiseled abs in a tiny bandeau top and neon orange pants while North kept comfy in an oversized sweatshirt and slides.

The eldest daughter of Kim and ex-husband Kanye West also uploaded two hilarious videos featuring her little sister Chicago, four, as well as her cousin Dream, six.

One of the clips showed Chicago and Dream mouthing the same Sketchers-related soundbite that North and Kim did.

Kim and North launched their joint TikTok account last year — something ex Kanye has frequently voiced his disapproval of online.

Along with daughters North and Chicago, Kim and Kanye also share sons Saint, six, and Psalm, three.

The SKIMS founder has been putting all her focus into motherhood since splitting from comedian Pete Davidson over the summer.

And on Tuesday, she gave her 333million Instagram followers a peek at life at home with her brood in a new slideshow of snaps.

Kim captured her and Kanye’s three youngest children – Saint, Chicago and Psalm – snuggling in her bed at home.

‘nothing better [than] these snuggles,’ captioned the reality TV star as the tuckered out trio laid tangled in the sheets.

Saint and Chicago looked adorable as they slept close to one another on one side of the bed while Psalm happily claimed the other side for himself.

As the night progressed and the lights went out, the siblings eventually cuddled up together.

Missing from the sweet images was North, who was busy hanging with her makeup mogul aunt Kylie Jenner for the day.

The nine-year-old proved to be a pint-sized beauty guru as she practiced her makeup skills on Kylie.

North pulled products from the 25-year-old businesswoman’s makeup line Kylie Cosmetics to create the custom ‘glam’ look.

Kim and Kanye put an end to their marriage last year, with the KUWTK alum being the one to file for divorce.

The duo were declared legally single in March after months of the 45-year-old rapper attempting to win his wife back amid her romance with SNL hunk Pete Davidson, 29.

Kanye has used social media, as well as TV interviews, to air out the looming custody issues between himself and Kim, particularly wanting the kids to go to his ‘unaccredited Christian private school’ Donda Academy’ and ‘protecting them’ from things he disagrees with.

‘I won’t stop until I have a say so on my kids no matter what it legally takes,’ wrote Kanye in a since-deleted post in September on his now-defunct Instagram account.

The Jesus Walks hitmaker previously admitted that his ex-wife raises their children ’80 percent of the time.’

But since Kanye was reportedly a no-show for his November 16 deposition in their ongoing divorce, legal experts told The Sun that Kim ‘could win full custody.’

‘Avoiding a deposition in litigation is treated seriously by the judge, particularly when it is a repeated offense,’ said Rachel Fiset, managing partner of Zweiback, Fiset & Zalduendo LLP.

Kanye, who legally goes by Ye now, will have another chance to appear in court on November 29 before a two-day trial on December 14. 

But if the disgraced designer fails to appear again, Kim could be a step closer to being granted full custody.

Family law attorney Lexie Rigden also applied her professional experience as she told the outlet: ‘If Kanye refuses to show up to his deposition, the Judge could sanction him monetarily, make him pay counsel fees, and if it is an egregious enough discovery violation, the judge may be able to bar him from putting on a case at trial.’

She warned, ‘For two very wealthy people who do not need each other’s money, the custody issues will be most important.’

Rigden noted, ‘In most divorce cases, the parties are able to at least work out some of the issues. But, given his behavior and apparent unreasonableness, everything may be in dispute, from custody to distribution of assets.’

Acknowledging the former couple’s extreme wealth, she stated, ‘For two very wealthy people who do not need each other’s money, the custody issues will be most important.’

The lawyer referenced the Yeezy creator’s social media tirades as she said, ‘His disparaging posts about Kim and her family in the media, and his nonsensical proposals including that the children attend two different schools at once, are going to likely be used to show that he cannot reasonably co-parent and does not have the children’s best interests in mind.’

Fiset clarified, ‘After Kanye skipped this deposition, they’ve given him one more date to appear.

‘If he doesn’t, he may face sanctions during their upcoming trial, such as a fine or a monetary award to Ms. Kardashian, and/or he may have the facts which they were trying to uncover during the deposition change into admissions against him.

‘If he is trying to avoid giving information that would hurt his case by skipping a deposition, a judge might automatically determine that the bad information is a fact inside of the trial, because he was uncooperative.’

The lawyer continued, ‘In severe instances, it can be contempt, which can either be civil or criminal as determined by the judge.

‘Overall, this can hurt his case. In the most severe instance, the judge can rule against him and he could get a lesser custody award and a less favorable monetary disposition.

‘But more likely, the judge will simply determine that the facts Kim Kardashian alleges are true, and not give him the chance to defend himself.’

The former couple is hashing out how to divvy their more than $2billion in combined assets after seven years of marriage.

Last month, The Blast reported that West’s lawyer filed a ‘declaration of disclosure,’ a sign that the case is on the verge of coming to a close.

According to the documents, Kanye has turned over all of his financial information to his estranged wife’s legal team, and has also reached an agreement with her on how to divide their finances and property.
