Kim Kardashian Kicks Off Her Heels for Sneaker Deal with Skechers Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic

Kim Kardashian is taking off her heels and shaping up for a new sneaker deal. The 30-year-old reality star announced on Monday that she and mom Kris Jenner are teaming with Skechers to promote the brand’s Shape-ups fitness footwear. “When I was in New York, I wasn’t working out,” Kardashian told PEOPLE at an L.A. press conference. “I was feeling so depressed.” But all that apparently changed when she was sent her first pair of Shape-ups. “I honestly would wear them just all around the hotel. The fact that I would feel something without even having to set foot on a treadmill just made me feel better.” Now “hooked on” her new kicks, the style icon admits they’re also a great addition to her workout wardrobe. “I like neon,” she says. “My shoe selection even before Skechers had always been really unique, and I pretty much wore simple, basic outfits, so you want your shoes to be your statement piece.” Now “a little more toned” in her “legs, butt and stomach,” Kardashian is ready to take on Jenner in a Shape-ups challenge. “I’m probably gonna win because I have a little secret [Kim’s] not ready for,” Jenner said. Not breaking a sweat, Kardashian quickly quipped: “I don’t really brag. I think it’s a sign of weakness.” To shop the Kardashian’s new shoes of choice, visit skechers.com. –Melody Chiu

That’s nice to hear, good luck, sorry Kim was a little depressed over not working out in NYC, though! Also, I wish WWE Raw Superstar, Randy Orton, a speedy recovery from his Knee Injury and I hope he gets The WWE Title Back soon? It was not cool what The Nexus did to him before his 1st WWE Title Match, and I liked Raw Superstar, John Cena’s, fairwell Speech and later costing Wade Barett The WWE Title, though it sucks Orton lost The Title to 2010 MITB Winner, The Miz, also a Raw Superstar and Nexus are Raw Superstars as well!

Ala..if you can’t say anything nice. don’t say anything at all!

This is funny considering earlier this year she was featured many pics with her Reebok EasyTones on her Twitter account.

Lyn – what is a comment section for if you can’t state an opinion, regardless whether it’s positive or negative?
Besides, if Jon can rant about WWE’s Raw episode, which is completely irrelevant to this article, why can’t I post a negative opinion on this article?

asha on

what are the Kardashains going to promote next? toilet bowl cleaners? There is not much left for them to make money off of.

Wow Brian, I’m going to assume you’re a 13 year old boy because your comments are that inmature.

Khloe is not that big, she’s just taller than the bunch, and they are all attractive in their own way.

Those of you criticizing them promoting things are sad because if you were offered money you would do the same thing. As for the shoes though anyone with some brains knows they are just a gimmick and are not equal to going to the gym. But hey more power to them for making money by promoting them.
