“All-occasion, trend-friendly sandals, sneakers and slides that firm thighs [are trends for spring]. The consumer has also moved on from shoes thatlook good for you and instead [wants] Mbt Discount shoes that fuse fashion and function. We have also expanded our offering for men with ergonomically designed two-bar slides and sneakers that have the same muscle-loading midsole [as our other FitFlops].”
Skechers is paying $45 million in cash to settle the class-action lawsuit Mbt Sandals related to false advertising of its toning shoes, brought against it by the FTC in January.The Manhattan Beach, Calif.-based company said in a statement released Wednesday that it denies the allegations and believes its advertising was appropriate, but has decided to settle these Birkenstock Shoes claims in order to avoid protracted legal proceedings.The firm will see a $50 million impact on its cash balance for the current quarter, as it will also pay $5 million in attorneys’ fees to settle the domestic advertising matters and related claims on Fitflops a global basis.Still, Skechers believes the settlement will result in substantial net savings compared with the high long-term cost of defending against multiple legal proceedings brought by federal and state regulators and private consumer class-actions lawyers.Company CEO David Weinberg said, “Skechers could not Mbt ignore the exorbitant cost and endless distraction of several years spent defending multiple lawsuits in multiple courts across the country. This settlement will dispose once and for all of the regulatory and class-action proceedings. While we believe we could have prevailed in each Birkenstock Sale of these cases, to do so would have imposed an unreasonable burden on the company regardless of the outcome.” The company did not respond to requests for additional comment.Consumers alleged in the lawsuit that Skechers’ toning shoes — including the Shape-ups, Tone-ups, Skechers Fitflop Sandals Resistance Runner and Shape-ups Toners — were falsely advertised to improve posture, promote weight loss, strengthen the back, improve blood circulation, promote sleep, reduce stress, reduce physical stress on knees, legs and ankle joints, and burn calories.Lawyers representing consumers said in a statement Birkenstock Sandals that consumers who bought these shoes should submit a claim for a refund of the purchase.

The economy is ransacking corporate profits, but a few business executives are not afraid of what’s to come.Foolish? Not really. Industry leaders, speaking on a panel that addressed footwear fundamentals at the CEO Summit, said they are focusing on long-range opportunities.Bob Campbell, founder and CEO of BBC Birkenstock Arizona International, said he’s pressing ahead overseas.“The international market has got to be a big part of your business today,” Campbell said. “The globe is getting much smaller.”He said, for instance, that for every new license or brand BBC considers taking on, a global opening must exist. Currently, Campbell is in the process of expanding three brands internationally next year. Topping his list of countries is China.Others agreed about mining the Chinese market. While that nation’s economic growth has stalled along with the rest of the world’s, China still has 1.3 billion people — all potential consumers. What’s more encouraging is that the majority of retail is mainly in major cities such as Beijing and Shanghai. That means firms have yet to dent the smaller regions.For Joe Ouaknine, CEO of Mbt Shoes Titan Industries, China also is filled with ample sourcing opportunities. “A lot of factories we couldn’t get to [before because they were too busy] are now trying to do business with us,” said Ouaknine, who, in partnership with Campbell, is relaunching Charles Jourdan Fitflops Sandals For Women next month. “Yes, factories are closing, but there are good factories that are now available. It’s a time for opportunities. These can be good times.”Panelists also stressed the importance of maintaining candid retail relationships.“The key to being successful right now is to have Fitflop Sale transparency between our two businesses,” said Rick Graham, SVP of sales at Skechers, who joked about Chairman Robert Greenberg’s desire for rapid expansion into new categories. “The more transparent we are with each other, the better our business is.”Dan Bazinet, CEO of Birkenstock Birkenstock USA, added, “Our relationships with independent stores are the most important relationships we have.”He acknowledged his firm had mismanaged some of those relationships in the past, comparing Birkenstock’s actions to the Japanese worldview wabi-sabi. “It’s the art of imperfection, which we’ve mastered in Fitflops On Sale the last five years,” Bazinet said. “Now we’re back on track to improving those relationships, managing inventory and doing what we can locally and nationally to support branding.”
