IF YOU PURCHASED AN EARTH EXER-WALK SHOE BETWEEN JANUARY 1, 2009 AND OCTOBER 14, 2015, A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS.

A settlement has been proposed in a class action lawsuit pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois entitled Leslie Hedges, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, v. Earth, Inc., No. 14-cv-9858 (the "the Action"). In the Action, Plaintiff Hedges, in her individual capacity and in her capacity as a representative of a putative class of similarly-situated persons, alleges that Earth violated law by mislabeling its Exer-Walk shoes with certain health benefits. The Notice explains the nature of the lawsuit, the general terms of the proposed settlement, and your legal rights and obligations. Earth denies any wrongdoing or liability whatsoever, and no court or other entity has made any judgment or other determination of any liability against Earth.
