GET YOUR GAME KICKS ON

A new age of interactive footwear has arrived!  Introducing Game Kicks—the shoe that has a built-in memory game.  It’s the perfect way for kids to pass the time during long car rides, boring waits at the doctor’s office, or hanging out with friends. Game Kicks gives boys and girls a fun game to play everywhere they go. Check out the video and you’ll see how Game Kicks is simple to learn and easier to play.  Just start a game and watch the lights, remember what you see, and push the matching buttons in the same order!  Sound effects beep with each light and let you know when you miss. (Parents shouldn’t worry because the sound can be muted for times and places where quiet is required.)  Try to get a new high score every time.  Road trip to grandma’s house?   Play Game Kicks!   Long line at the amusement park?  Play Game Kicks!   Waiting for mom after school?   Play Game Kicks!  Forget to bring a portable game system?  Play Game Kicks!  As long as you’re wearing Game Kicks, the game is always with you.

 

I HEART SKECHERS

Love it or hate it, it’s Valentine’s Day. At Skechers, we’re expanding its meaning this year, asking the world: what’s your definition of love?

The day may be famous for red and romance, but there are plenty of other ways to imagine the “L” word: a long hug, your favorite song playing on the radio, a hot latte on a rainy morning. That new scarf that makes you feel amazing. Laughing so hard that you cry. And of course, your undying love for all things Skechers.

If you’re inspired to give your take on love, check out the Skechers Sweetheart Sweepstakes. We’re giving away 14 pairs of Skechers to people who’d like to tell us how they define love. Share yours, and you could win two pairs of Skechers for yourself and a special someone in your life. Just enter by tomorrow to win!

SPIRIT OF GIVING: BOBS HOLIDAY PARTY FOR LAS VEGAS CHILDREN

‘Tis the season to give… Skechers and Zappos got into the spirit with a holiday party and donation event for Las Vegas children in need.

The December event was in partnership with Variety Early Learning Center Las Vegas and K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, and was packed with holiday festivities that included 200 new pairs of BOBS shoes for boys and girls, decorating stations where they could customize their new shoes and holiday ornaments, and a surprise visit from Santa Claus who passed out toys to the kids!  What a great way to celebrate the holidays, and to give shoes that kids can enjoy all year long.

What is the inspiration behind this style?

I was inspired to design this boot while shopping for a big, cozy cardigan sweater to wrap around me and keep me warm… I thought it would be great to do a boot in a great sweater material to wrap your feet and legs in cozy knits.

How would you wear this style?

Over leggings or skinny jeans.

Where would you wear it?

Anywhere… for fashion or function.

What is the hottest color or trend in this collection?

There is a big woven trend right now… the sweater shaft has a woven look to it. Arctic fur and other soft tonal furs are also really popular.

Product details:

Patterns or materials on the boot?  Woven look sweater (knit) shaft, suede rand and heel to protect from weather.  Soft, tonal fur collar and upper shaft lining.

Closure details?  Rope tie-on collar with beads.

Boot lined? The upper shaft is lined with faux fur.

Comfort features? Skechers Memory Foam footbed.
