An Ohio waitress said some toning shoes broke her legs. Holly Ward is suing Skechers over its popular Shape-Ups.

She says she wore them for hours at a time, at work and on walks. Ward's lawsuit claims she developed severe pain within five months and had stress fractures in both hips.

"The femur bone is the strongest bone in the human body and I fractured not one but two of them without being in a car crash or any traumatic incident," said Ward.

Skechers told ABC News it wants to take a closer look at Ward's lawsuit before commenting on it. Skechers added that millions of people wear Shape-Ups with no problems.
