BOBS launched the back-to-school season with its very own cross-country tour!

We had a great time trekking east and west this fall to give more than 40,000 pairs of new shoes to students in need – partnering with some leading retailers and charities to help school districts and organizations in cities like Baltimore, Philadelphia, Lancaster PA, San Jose, Coeur d’Alene, Spokane and beyond. It was so rewarding and fun to see thousands of kids loving their new shoes and personalizing them at our decorating stations. Check out the pics below!

Thanks for your huge support, and for continuing to help so many kids in need.


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – and every year, we look forward to releasing new product designed to honor the fight against breast cancer. This year, we’ve released a limited edition series of Skechers GOrun and Skechers GOwalk shoes along with apparel from our Skechers Performance offering.

We’re very proud to be part of this fight – to support the crucial work of the American Cancer Society, and be part of the journey that will make this tragic disease a thing of the past.

TV bingers unite! In celebration of the recent Emmys and the start of fall, we asked our team what they’re catching up on this season – and now have a new slew of shows that we can’t turn off. Whether you’re looking for your next screen fix or an old favorite, check out this list for some great ideas.

Lara: Parks and Recreation. I think I watched all seven seasons in the span of a weekend.  The show guarantees laughs with every episode – I wish Leslie Knope was running for president!  And that Chris Pratt is a fox!”

JD:Modern Family – fun times with the family you always wanted…”

Gina:American Horror Story.  I can’t watch it by myself so I wait and make my boyfriend watch it with me.”

James: “Joss Whedon’s cult masterpiece, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. With 144 episodes – plus another 110 if you add on spin-off series Angel – this is a long haul binge that will get you through all the cooler months ahead.”

Nestor: House of Cards. The show highlights powerful people’s worst impulses to remain in political power… while fictional, there are hints of reality. There are plenty of plot twists, it moves quickly and it doesn’t drag on.”

Thomas: “Currently binge watching Ancient Aliens. I really like how ridiculous the show is.”

Claudia: Last Man on Earth. The main character Phil is the guy you love to hate but can’t stop watching. He’s such a jerk! Can’t wait to watch the next season and find out what shenanigan he gets himself into.”

Akane: “Anything HooplaKidz. The perfect channel for binging videos all over your toddler when she’s squirrely and out of control! Great songs that little kids love, and a great break for tired parents.”

Marcella: The Office! I love the private conference room where they let you know how they’re really feeling, and all the crude/witty humor. It’s uncomfortable to watch, but Michael Scott (Steve Carell) makes it impossible for you to hate him.”

Melissa: Fixer Upper on HGTV… Chip Gaines (That’s all I have to say). Actually anything HGTV… they’re all pretty cute!”

Alisa: Friends! This classic is always my go to on a happy, sad, or sick day. Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Joey and Phoebs have me laughing out loud every single time.”

BBQCan you believe this fantastic summer is coming to a close?   Yes, we understand that “officially” we have until September 23, but everyone knows that the last record drops on the party side of summer when the sun sets on Labor Day.  It’s our final chance to let loose and celebrate the sunshine so what better way to do it right than with a barbeque. Here’s are favorite tips for success.


Most meats will benefit from some sort of treatment before the big event so don’t get stuck with unprepped product at go-time.  Brining helps lock in moisture if you’re cooking low and slow. The solution can be as simple as water with salt and sugar but we found a great recipe for a pork brine on a meat smoking forum here. Marinating gives you the chance to create unique and amazing flavor profiles in your meats.  Plus, as an added benefit that many of us don’t realize, it also inhibits the formation of potentially carcinogenic HCA when your meat is charred by an extremely hot flame. We came across more info on the science if you’re curious.


Grill masters claim they can cook to order just by pushing the meat surface with their finger.  You can probably do that too with burgers but no need to show off with anything else.  Make your life simple and get a fork with an electric probe for testing.  Or if you’re cooking something big, you can go fancy and get a remote probe that will sound an alarm when the meat hits your desired temp. While you don’t want to serve your guests anything undercooked, always remember there’s no fix for overdone and your meat will continue to cook even when it comes off the flame. Pay attention when it gets close to your desired temperature.


Step away from burgers, brats and dogs and get creative with your grill!  Salmon grilled on cedar planks is always a favorite and easy way to add smoked flavor to fish. Shrimp skewers are amazing and super easy to do, but that might seem pedestrian when you have tofu and oysters to consider. Check out this this list of unusual foods to grill from the daily meal. (There’s a poundcake and banana split on there!) If you plan to break the mold with a new recipe or technique, consider a ‘rehearsal’ for practice so you feel more confident on the big day.


It’s easy to put all your energy into the main attraction, so don’t forget that side dishes can make or break a BBQ. Sides like asparagus, corn and potatoes are easily prepared on the grill. Light salads with summer vegetables and fruit are always popular. And this is the season for figs!  Slice them up, add burrata and arugula, then top with a thick balsamic dressing.  You can even throw the figs on the grill for a few seconds if you want to get fancy. Five minutes and only four ingredients later, you’ll have something guests will be talking about.  Or if you don’t want to be bothered, make the party a pot-luck and leave the sides to your guests.

Best luck with your end of summer grilling!  Let us know any tips or favorite recipes that you have in the comments!


As we close out July with only one full month left this summer, it’s the perfect time to think about what music is sticking with us in 2015. Of course our very own Demi Lovato’s megahit “Cool For Summer” is a serious contender for the hottest track of THIS summer. (Lovatics can vote now for best fandom at the Teen Choice Awards!) We polled the office to see what else everyone is rocking out to during these hottest months of the year. Check it out and let us know your favorite song of summer in the comments!

Janet Jackson feat. J. Cole – “No Sleeep
I am digging “No Sleeep” (yes 3 e’s) – It has a cool, summer groove going which would be perfect for a day at the pool. Enjoy.

Sheppard – “Geronimo
I have been playing Geronimo by Sheppard on repeat this summer!  The upbeat song helps me get through my summer workouts with a smile on my face.  No easy task!

Rupert Holmes – “Escape (The Piña Colada Song)
Because I love piña coladas and getting caught in the rain.

Ice Cube – “Today Was a Good Day
It’s an old song but I know all the lyrics so that makes me feel pretty cool. It’s such an LA song. Every LA native know this song. I mean every day that you don’t have to use your AK is a good day, right?

Eagles – “Peaceful Easy Feeling
This is one of those classic songs that just sounds like summer. Whether you’re taking a road trip, laying on the beach or jetting off to another country, “Peaceful Easy Feeling” (along with other Eagles hits) will get you in the right mood for time well spent in the summer sun.

Ellie Goulding – “Burn
All though it was released earlier in the year it is a song that I continued to listen to throughout the summer. Ellie’s voice is very relaxing and the song has an uplifting vibe to it. I definitely recommend it to all!

Meghan Trainor feat. John Legend – “Like I’m Gonna Lose You
Beautiful message and it features the beautiful John Legend!

Elle King – “Ex’s & Oh’s
Because summer is the season for dating, and this song is all about the crazy ups and downs you experience in the dating world.

Katy Perry – “Roar
I don’t really have a choice. My daughter loves this song so it repeats 15-20 times per day in my car. I’ve kind of forgotten what other music sounds like.

Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars – “Uptown Funk!
When you hear this every day in the office next to yours, you know it’s the song of the summer (or at least someone’s summer). Great beat, great video and (sigh) Bruno Mars.

Jamie XX feat. Young Thug & Popcaan – “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)
It’s probably the most fun-filled track on The XX co-founder’s insanely fantastic solo album. As this plays it’s easy to imagine yourself with a drink in hand laughing under the sun with your closest friends.


You spent all winter working on your beach body.  Here’s a few of our favorite ways to maintain that level of fitness through the rest of summer.



The great thing about bike workouts are the many options available. Find adventure on mountain trails or get in the zone on a long distance road trek. Any way you approach it, you’ll be increasing your cardiovascular strength with each passing mile. And if you add cycling to your regular regimen, it won’t be long before you see…and feel…a difference in your calves, thighs and buttocks with reduced impact on your knees and hips compared to other intense activities. (Start riding in the Skech-Air Infinity.)



Not only is it refreshing to take a dip in the hot sun, swimming is one of the most efficient forms of exercise out there.  As a cardiovascular activity it offers a surefire way to strengthen your heart and lungs that steps up easily with your fitness level and endurance. Best of all it’s a full body muscular activity that’s extremely low impact. Swimming activates muscles from your arms to your chest and core through to your legs.  It’s great for injury rehab too…so if you’re having knee issues from running, you can keep up your routine in the water. (Slip into The Persistent when you get out of the water.)



It really just comes down to standing up and moving. In the advent of fitness trackers, we’ve all started taking the long way on foot to get that step count up. From a stroll around the block to a half marathon jog–running and walking is the easiest and most accessible way to get your blood flowing. And no matter where you find yourself this summer, it’s the one fitness activity that you’re always able to experience. (Skechers GOwalk 3 will keep you moving.)



The over 20 million Americans who practice yoga regularly have a deep understanding of the benefits that this Eastern practice can have on fitness and well-being. Learning the key poses that stretch your body from core to fingers and toes plus key techniques for improved balance, focus and breathing will help reduce the chance of injury and recovery in other activities. Check out this infographic and benefits rundown from the Huffington Post and you’ll be convinced to become master of your downward facing dog. (The Stretch-Fit – Glider coordinates with your yoga style.)



When you see someone standing on a board while paddling (otherwise known as SUP) across the horizon, it looks serene and peaceful. That it definitely is, but in reality it can also be an intense workout that activates your core. With proper form, SUP is a fantastic activity for building ab strength while the constant tiny adjustments required to maintain balance work your leg muscles too. Learn the basics in a calm, protected harbor or marina, then dial it up when you face the waves. Either way it’s low impact, high calorie burning, super fun and gets you out on the water!  What could be better! (Carry your board wearing comfy Skechers on-the-GO – Flow sandals.)

How do you like to keep up your activity level through the warmest time of year?  Let us know in the comments!
