----------------------------------------

CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against FitFlop on behalf of individuals who have purchased all past and present men’s and women’s style sandals, boots, clogs, slippers, and shoes marketed with the company’s “Microwobbleboard Technology”(the “Footwear”).

The class action involves the deceptive, misleading, false, and unfair advertising of the FitFlop Footwear’s ability to:

- Improves core muscle strength
- Absorbs shock on feet, knees and back
- Encourages better posture and stronger muscles
- Burns calories
- Mimics barefoot walking, but with more of a challenge
- Can help reduce cellulite and slim and tone thighs
- Improves muscle tone
- Strengthens and tones muscles in the feet, legs, buttocks, stomach and back
- Increases leg muscle activity and circulation
- Reduces lower back strain
- Reduces hip joint stress
- Increases quadriceps muscle activation (up to 16%)
- Reduces knee joint stress
- Increases calf muscle activation (up to 11%)
- Reduces ankle joint stress
- Reduces foot pressure concentration;
- Increases bottom muscle activity (up to 30%)
- Increases hamstring muscle activation (up to 16%);

In fact, the only independent and reliable scientific study on the subject demonstrated that there is no evidence to support the claims that FitFlop Footwear will help wearers exercise more intensely, burn more calories or improve muscle strength and tone.

As a result, consumers were induced into purchasing Footwear that do not live up to their promised results, thereby causing them economic damages equal to the purchase price of these products.
