Vibram FiveFingers shoe refunding customers for false advertising

Runners, listen up! If you bought a pair of Vibram FiveFingers running shoes you could be in for a refund. The shoemaker has agreed to pay out $3.75 million to customers who bought the shoes after 2009.

Critics say the company advertised that the shoes benefited health and prevented injuries. The company has agreed to stop those claims. The settlement still has to be approved, but refunds could total anywhere from $20 to $90.
