And this is why: Because Skechers is selling SHAPE UP SHOES TO GIRLS. AS YOUNG AS SEVEN.
And we don't support that kind of anti-kid, anti-feminist, anti-human bullshit.
I looked around online, and couldn't find one review that argued that shape ups even work, so the company's fitness claims seem weak at best. And if the shoes had an exercise advantage, why are Skecher shape-ups only being sold to girls, and not to boys?
I am willing to reconsider this position if Skechers stops selling those shoes whose inappropriateness is only rivaled by the padded girls bikini from Abercombie. (We don't shop there either.)
If you also think Skechers shouldn't be selling Shape Ups to girls, please sign this petition from Change.org. Not sure what you think? Watch the Skechers commercial:
This is my seventeenth instruction for my husband in my ongoing series Instructions for My Husband.
Do you impose any family boycotts? Would you buy your daughter Skechers Shape Ups?
