A recent report says a line of Skechers shoes is being questioned by parents.

According to LATimes.com, Skechers, the Manhattan Beach footwear maker, has a new line of shoes targeted at teen girls, retailing at stores such as DSW and Dillard’s.
Sounds normal, until this: The collection is called “Daddy’$ Money.”

The report goes on to say that the sneakers have hidden 2-inch wedges. Designs include animal prints and lips, with names such as “Gimme Megabucks,” “Gimme Wicked” and “Gimme Mucho Dinero.” An accompanying video features singers crooning about “daddy’s girls” with sound effects like a cash register’s “cha-ching.”
