After one of the toughest slogs through winter in memory, we couldn’t be more excited that our favorite season has finally returned. We love Spring for so many reasons. This is when everything about the world opens up in a sensory overload that makes you feel guilty staying inside. From the moment that first brave green bud breaks through, it’s a continuous assault of color and vibrant life that puts huge smiles on our faces.
How great is it to shed the heavy jackets and outer layers to feel that friendly sunshine again? We look forward to the calming breeze of the season that carries the amazing scents of fresh blooming flowers and taste of fruit off the vine. Maybe it’s just the puffy white clouds creating contrast, but the sky looks bluer and cleaner and more pure this time of year than any other.
It’s a time for walks…for picnics…for relaxing on the lawn with a good book…and spending as much time as possible outside. Best of all, it’s a time for sandals. Cute or chic, bright or bold—sandals open up the door to all the countless cool Spring looks that we’ve been waiting so long to wear.
Do you love the start of Spring as much as we do? We’re celebrating this joyous annual event with the Skechers Hello Spring sweepstakes on Instagram. Ten winners will receive a pair of Skechers sandals to kick off the new season in style. It’s easy to enter! Just take a pic or video that shows us what spring looks like in your neighborhood and post with #SkechersHelloSpring. Sweepstakes ends March 28, 2015.

Today I’ve partnered up with Skechers to talk about the reasons why Skechers Foamies are the perfect shoes for kids, especially toddlers.
Reason 1: Machine Washable!
My son Zaden gravitates towards all things messy and isn’t afraid to get dirty – and it’s a pain to clean mud, sand, or even food off of his shoes. I LOVE that Skechers Foamies are 100% washable: it makes cleaning them that much easier and gives me peace of mind anytime Zaden’s shoes get dirty. I just throw them in the wash, let them air dry, and they are as good as new.
Reason 2: Bright Colors.
Zaden is at an age where he loves playing and interacting with other kids and doing his own thing. With Skechers Foamies’ assortment of bright fun colors, I love that it’s easy to spot my little guy when he is playing with friends and that I’m still giving him a little bit of space so he can grow and develop his social skills.
Reason 3: Comfortable.
These shoes are designed so well and just by looking at them I can tell they are extremely comfortable. They have a full-length memory foam cushioned insole, and I know if Zaden could speak for himself he would say that makes all the difference. Whenever Zaden picks out his shoes, it is always one of his Skechers Foamies… always. ;)
Reason 4: Easy to put on.
These shoes are so simple to put on. They aren’t slip-on shoes, but the next best thing: easy straps enable you to tighten or loosen the shoes to provide the perfect fit for your little one. It takes less than ten seconds for me to get Zaden in his shoes and out the door, which I love.

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.

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!

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!
It’s a new year, and we’re thinking about wellness. The chance to take charge of your life and make it healthier overall – in mind, body and spirit.
Millions of people make resolutions, but we’re taking a different state of mind this year: one that will last for the long haul and inspire healthier choices for years to come.
At Skechers, our team is inspired by this wellness philosophy. We support each other’s progress through on-site yoga and workout classes, running groups during lunch and after work, and health fairs that encourage better choices at the office and at home.
We’d like to invite you to be part of our journey to better health in 2015. For three Wednesdays in January, we’re running the Skechers Wellness Wednesday Sweepstakes: we’re giving away two pairs of Skechers Sport shoes every week, one for men and one for women. Share a picture of yourself in Skechers, tell us your favorite workout routine, and you could start the year in a new pair of Skechers Sport shoes.
Enter to win here, and tell us how 2015 will be your year for wellness!

‘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.
The brightest stars of the footwear industry gathered on December 3 in New York City for the 2014 Footwear News Achievement Awards ceremony where Skechers won the Company of the Year award. Television personality and longtime Skechers spokesperson Brooke Burke-Charvet praised the company’s charitable efforts as she presented the top award to Skechers president Michael Greenberg.
Check out Brooke Burke-Charvet and Michael Greenberg in this black carpet video from the event.
As an exciting follow up on the FNAA win, Skechers was also recently nominated for three Footwear PLUS awards including running, brand of the year, and an additional nod for company of the year! For a complete list of nominees and to cast your vote for Skechers, go here!
