We’re excited to announce that the Skechers Performance Division has signed long-distance runner Kara Goucher to join the Skechers Performance Elite Team. The Skechers Performance Division will be Goucher’s official footwear sponsor and you’ll be seeing a lot of the world-class athlete in upcoming Skechers Performance advertising and marketing around the globe. A competitive runner for over 20 years, Goucher grew up in Duluth, Minnesota and attended the University of Colorado in Boulder. After taking a brief break from competing to have a child, Goucher returned to competition in January 2011 and is currently training in Boulder, Colorado with her coaches Mark Wetmore and Heather Burroughs. Her achievements as an elite long-distance runner include winning the bronze medal at the 2007 World Championships in the 10,000 meter, competing for Team USA at the London 2012 and Beijing 2008 games, placing first in the 2012 USA Half Marathon Championships and placing third in the 2012 Olympic marathon trials in Houston, Texas. Goucher is known for her passion and desire to win and we can’t wait to see what’s next when she begins racing in Skechers Performance footwear!
Congratulations to Skechers Performance elite athlete Meb for his victory at the 2014 Boston Marathon! Wearing the new Skechers GOmeb Speed 3 shoes, Meb ran a career best with a new personal record of 2:08:37. He was the first American male to win the Boston Marathon since 1983 and the first American overall since 1985.
After the race, Meb reflected on his historic accomplishment at the Boston Strong event:
“A year ago I decided I wanted to win the 2014 Boston Marathon for the people of Boston and for the U.S. When the Red Sox put the World Series trophy at the Boston Marathon finish line during the victory parade last year, I was inspired more than ever to come back and win. With the support of the Skechers Performance Division by my side every step of the way, this victory today belongs to the city and my country.”
Meb first signed with the Skechers Performance Division in 2011 to help launch Skechers GOrun footwear. Since that time, he has won more than five key races wearing Skechers Performance footwear, including the 2012 U.S. Trials and the U.S. Half Marathon Championship in Houston this past January.
You can wear Meb’s race shoes when Skechers GOrun Speed 3 footwear hits stores this Fall.

During PARIS Fashion Week for FW14, a woman wearing a Carven coat, fitted trousers and a Celine bag could only be a fashion addict. But what makes this outfit is the sneakers on her feet. Not designer styles with precious details and printed leathers, but real running shoes, first degree, directly from an athlete or jogger’s dressing. The girl is not coming back from the gym and doesn’t have a fitness mat in her office. It’s her “off-duty” style, an expression for taxi drivers, officers and top models on their casual days. Look at models’ blogs, and you’ll see hordes of them in these popular sneakers.
Get the look in Skechers: With a range of bright and light shoes featuring SKECHERS Memory Foam, find the perfect accessory for your “off-duty” look!
We know that kids love SKECHERS light-up shoes. Whether it’s Twinkle Toes or Super Hot Lights, SKECHERS has so many ways to make shoes light up, and that makes kids happy.
We want to make everyone happy, so SKECHERS introduced Switch Lights, a simple and fun way to turn off the lights on our light-up shoes. If you’re at the movies, in the car, at school or anywhere that light-up shoes would be a distraction, simply press the on/off switch to disable the light-up function. Press again, and the shoes are ready to blink their brightest!
Switch Lights give parents a tool to put kids in control of their light-up fun. This feature helps the lights last longer as well.
Check out all of our Switch Lights shoes with this convenient on/off switch here:
At SKECHERS, we see Valentine’s Day as a holiday of love and friendship: a chance to celebrate everything from classic romance to beloved friends and family. Most of us are familiar with the day’s iconic red, pink and white hues… but have you ever wondered what they all mean? Read on to learn more about each of these shades, and see how these colors can be a perfect fit when styled up in a new pair of SKECHERS!
RED: Famous for romance, this shade is the top pick for swooning couples, and is always wiped out at florists, chocolatiers and stores come February. While some argue that the red rose was a favorite of goddess of love Venus, everyone agrees that this warm and vibrant shade is known for its passion, energy and excitement.
RED style tip: complete your look (and turn heads) with SKECHERS Cali Club: a bold statement that will make you stand out, all day long.
PINK: While red is sensual, pink actually gets the award for enduring, unconditional love. Thoughtful and caring, pink is an affectionate, gentle shade known for happiness, tenderness and gratitude… positive and inspiring.
PINK style tip: embrace true love with SKECHERS Flirty – Wink: a soft stretch wedge with a sweet boost.
WHITE: It’s the ultimate shade of innocence: nothing evokes a sense of peace and calm like white does. Its beauty lies in its purity: so simple, it awakens the senses.
WHITE style tip: step out in SKECHERS – EX Flex 2 – Sweetpea: a woven crocheted casual that’s easy on the eyes (and your soles).
