British-born model, actress and television presenter Kelly Brook has signed on to appear in marketing and social media campaigns for SKECHERS women’s footwear collections through 2015. She will be the first SKECHERS celebrity featured globally who came to fame outside the United States—a testament to the power of the SKECHERS brand around the world.
Brook began modeling at age 16 and soon become a fixture on magazine covers as one of the UK’s top pin-up and swimsuit models where she was named “Sexiest Woman in the World” by FHM. A favorite paparazzi subject, Brook transcended the editorial pages as a presenter or judge on numerous television series and her acting roles have grown from multi-episode arcs on popular shows like Smallville to her first staring TV role in the soon-to-premiere NBC comedy series One Big Happy.
After signing her deal, Brook commented: “It doesn’t get any bigger than SKECHERS when it comes to lifestyle footwear so I’m thrilled to be working with this amazing brand. SKECHERS has brilliantly comfortable shoes in so many colors and looks. I love it and can’t wait to get started with this campaign!”
Watch for Kelly Brook’s new campaign launching in the months ahead!

We’re thrilled to announce that seven-time PGA Tour champion Matt Kuchar—currently ranked 5th in the world—will be the first brand ambassador and face of the Skechers GOgolf line. The multi-year partnership will feature Kuchar in a global Skechers GOgolf advertising campaign and the development of a namesake signature shoe line for the Skechers Performance Division.
Matt has been wearing Skechers GOgolf at PGA Tour events and had this to say about his footwear:
“Whether competing or practicing, I’m on my feet for hours, so the comfort and performance of my shoes is a critical factor in my success. In trying out the GOgolf line, I was really pleased both with the shoe and with the Skechers Performance Division team. Their attention to detail and expertise in performance footwear is impressive.”
As one of the most respected golfers in the sport, Kuchar’s accomplishments are noteworthy. After bursting on to the golf scene with his trademark smile at the 1998 Masters as the reigning U.S. Amateur champion, he has claimed seven titles on the PGA Tour and is a perennial fixture atop tournament leaderboards. His 2013 season was a banner year, as he earned two PGA Tour titles and helped the U.S. squad win the Presidents Cup.
Watch coverage of the PGA Tour and major golf events to see Matt wearing Skechers GOgolf on the links. And check back soon for new details about his upcoming campaign!
We’re excited to be on board as sponsor when the thoroughbred racehorse California Chrome contends at the Belmont Stakes on June 7 to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed grabbed the title 36 years ago in 1978.
SKECHERS is a California brand, so sponsoring this horse with his uniquely California story makes perfect sense and we’re proud to associate SKECHERS with the best Triple Crown contender in several generations. As a true representative of his home state, California Chrome has already captured the hearts of America and inspired people around the world so we’re excited to be along for this amazing journey.
Owned by Perry Martin and Steve Coburn, and trained by the legendary Art Sherman at Los Alamitos Race Course, California Chrome has won six straight including the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes.
Watch for SKECHERS on California Chrome’s blanket, gear and barn as well as on trainer and owner team jackets. And don’t miss the trilling race this Saturday!
On May 16, BOBS from SKECHERS traveled to Santa Rosa, California to donate 1,000 pairs of shoes to the children of Community Action Partnership of Sonoma County, Head Start/Early Head Start, and School Readiness programs in Sonoma County. Children gathered to receive a pair of BOBS and even had a chance to decorate them! The inspired and excited kids were able to use their imagination to create fun, personalized, fresh-looking shoes.
We love when our events inspire others to reach out to their community. In Santa Rosa, one local dentist joined in on the philanthropy by donating toothbrushes to the youth. No matter the product or event, we appreciate those who seek to create positive change in the world. That is why we want to say thank you to all the BOBS supporters! Whether you’re purchasing another pair of BOBS or simply giving back in your own way, we could not reach the milestone of more than 8 million pairs donated worldwide without your help.
For more pictures, check out our Santa Rosa gallery on Facebook, and be sure to like the post to show your continuous support of BOBS from Skechers!
So happy to see the sun! Time to show off your new pedi in the must-have warm weather look: wedges! The new SKECHERS Cali collection comes in brights and neutrals – and various heights and designs. Flirty, fun and fantastic. We’re ready.

We figured one Hall-of-Fame Joe wasn’t enough, so now “Broadway” Joe has joined the team of Joe “Cool” in representing Relaxed Fit from SKECHERS footwear. Set to air in Fall 2014, Joe Namath’s ad campaign will feature a new television commercial utilizing the same humorous tone as ongoing Relaxed Fit spots starring our other legendary Joe (Montana) and Mark Cuban.
We asked Joe Namath what he thinks about his upcoming commercial:
“I’ve loved what SKECHERS has done with this campaign so far and I’m excited be joining the team. The Relaxed Fit shoes really are as comfortable as they say, and I look forward to working with SKECHERS on what will be a fun commercial that my fans will enjoy.”
One of the most exciting quarterbacks in NFL history, Joe Namath entered the league after winning a national championship with the Alabama Crimson Tide in 1964. He was the first quarterback to throw for 4,000 yards and was named MVP when he led the New York Jets to victory at Super Bowl III in 1969. Namath retired in 1977 holding seasonal and career records for most games with 300 yards or more passing yards.
Stay tuned for more info on “Broadway” Joe’s new ad!
