The speculated rumor was that Sketchers dropped Kim due to her recent divorce controversy - yet the company is denying that is the reason.
In a press release as noted in a story on USA Today, Leonard Armato, president of Sketchers Fitness noted:
"Kim got us more attention than we ever dreamed. We have to establish Sketchers as morethan a lifestyle company."
There's mention of Mark Cuban making a cameo in the current planned ad with the French Bulldog.
