Celebrities in SKECHERS


British model and actress Kelly Brook spent a day in LA’s Echo Park filming her new commercial for Skechers Relaxed Fit and Modern Comfort footwear.  Kelly’s costars for the fun shoot on this gorgeous sunny day were three professional dog actors.  The trio of canines were total pros—they pulled Kelly through the park to the point where it was hard to tell who was walking whom!  Luckily she felt great running through the park during the day-long shoot thanks to her Relaxed Fit shoes with comfortable Skechers Memory Foam insoles.

Check out the behind-the-scenes sneak peek video below to see Kelly explain:

I always have Skechers sneakers with me wherever I go and I pretty much live in them when I’m at home. I work out in them or I wear little cut off jean shorts with them. They’re bright and colourful and they look good with anything really. If you meet a friend for coffee and decide after that you want to go for a nice walk in the park or a hike, then you’re ready to go in Skechers sneakers.

Watch for Kelly Brook’s new commercial premiering in the months ahead.  Check back for more details on the #KellyLovesSkechers campaign!


For the past seven years, thousands of friends and families have gathered at the Manhattan Beach Pier to walk for kids with special needs and education. Every year of the SKECHERS Pier to Pier Friendship Walk has broken new records in attendance and donations – and this year was no different! More than 12,000 people joined us at the beach on Sunday morning, blowing away this year’s $1.2 million goal to raise $1.4 million for children.

Many celebrities have taken part in this event over the years, and have returned year after year to lend their support. Brooke Burke-Charvet, Denise Austin and Tommy Lasorda were all back this year to cheer on the crowd – along with legendary boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, who made his SKECHERS Pier to Pier Friendship Walk debut and was thrilled to take part.

“When you say kids to me, I’m there,” said Sugar Ray. “This is my first, but believe me – this will not be my last.”

The SKECHERS Pier to Pier Friendship Walk’s grown into one of Southern California’s biggest events for kids – raising more than $5.5 million over the years to support The Friendship Circle, an organization for children with special needs, and education foundations in support of schools. Peer mentorships, social programs, new libraries, teachers’ salaries, classes that would otherwise have been shuttered – all of these and so much more benefit daily from the event’s contributions.

A huge thanks to all of the walkers and volunteers; our co-sponsor Nickelodeon; Steel Partners and its generous #P2PSteelSports Selfie Challenge, which pledged a $5 donation for every SKECHERS Pier to Pier Friendship Walk selfie posted; and all of the wonderful sponsors who give tirelessly year after year to help educate and inspire the next generation.

We’re excited to share with all the Lovatics out there that Demi has returned for an all-new Skechers photo shoot! After her recent fantastic “Cool for the Summer” single and video success, she’s back on-set getting started on the next phase of her ongoing Skechers campaign!  We shot and filmed at a loft space in Downtown L.A.. The space was visually as cool as her hit single, but the weather brought record-breaking heat that made the shoot a bit of a struggle in the old non-air-conditioned building. But with her adorable dog Batman on set to keep her company, Demi was a trooper and we were all rewarded at the end of the day with a beautiful roof-top sunset backdrop for the final few shots.

It feels really great to support a company that I actually love and wear. I have a ridiculous amount of pairs of Skechers in my closet. What I love about these shoes is they are very, VERY comfy.


As you know, Demi Lovato has been the face of Skechers women’s footwear since last year and now you can go behind the scenes with her in this exclusive video! She shares her thoughts on Skechers and the new campaign and offers insight on how changing her personal lifestyle over the last year influenced her fifth studio album, Confident, releasing on October 16.

Be on the lookout for Demi’s new print ads appearing in your favorite magazines in the months ahead! And of course the new campaign will extend to television—so check back for insider behind the scenes updates on an exciting new Skechers commercial starring Demi that’s set to premiere in time for the Holiday season!  Look for the #SkechersDemiStyle collection to grow with cool, new top secret styles that will be revealed soon!

Huge respect for Sugar Ray Leonard. The legend joined us in LA a few weeks back to shoot his new Skechers commercial, and put every one of us to shame: at 59, he can fly through a jump rope and whip out punches faster and harder than any of us. The man’s got such incredible discipline and focus on everything he does… truly inspiring.

Sugar Ray may be retired from boxing, but the word is just not in his vocabulary. With his commentary for NBC Sport’s Premier Boxing Champions series, support for children’s charities and the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation, which raises funds to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes, Sugar Ray’s heart is as big as his fight.

Check out Sugar Ray’s moves in the new commercial, and wait for the moment at the end when he throws a tongue-in-cheek jab at Floyd Mayweather, Jr. for thinking he could actually beat the legend in his prime. After seeing him in action, we’re putting our money on Sugar Ray.



We’ve been holding a secret for a little while now…a second* pop sensation will be teaming up with Skechers!  Meghan Trainor, who everyone knows from her six-times platinum single “All About That Bass,” will be appearing in a global campaign for Skechers set to launch later this year!

In case you’ve been vacationing on Mars and don’t know Meghan Trainor, here’s a little background—the multi-instrumentalist independently released three albums by the time she turned 17. While still in high school, she was discovered by a Nashville publishing company and started writing tracks for hot country artists like Rascal Flatts and Hunter Hayes.

Now signed with Epic Records, Trainor followed last year’s mega-hit single “All About That Bass” with her debut album, Title, which entered the Billboard 200 album chart at #1 when it was released earlier this year.  The album’s second single, “Lips Are Movin,” has been certified two-times Platinum and the third single, “Dear Future Husband,” is platinum.

Meghan can currently be seen performing live at dates across the United States on her MTRAIN Tour. We pulled her aside for a few minutes to get her thoughts on the announcement and this is what she had to say:

I’m very excited to work with Skechers! I’m proud to get behind a company that celebrates style and being true to yourself! The shoes are SO comfortable and stylish too. I know my fans will love this campaign.

Watch this space for the latest behind-the-scenes details on the #MTrainSkechers campaign as they become available!  And don’t forget to follow Meghan on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook as well!

*Don’t worry, Lovatics, Demi remains a major face for Skechers and we’ll be announcing exciting news that you’ll love in the weeks ahead!


Legendary New York closer Mariano Rivera may have retired in 2013 but the future Hall of Famer still has his head in the game as the latest Skechers sports icon representing Relaxed Fit! We were on the scene last month during Rivera’s debut Skechers commercial shoot at a stadium just outside New York City.

Check out this behind the scenes video to hear Mariano’s advice for young players who are passionate about succeeding in the sport.

And here’s a sneak peek of the new fun spot starring Mariano that will premiere during tonight’s All Star game airing on FOX.  It takes a lot of work to break in a new glove. Relaxed Fit footwear from Skechers includes a soft Skechers Memory Foam insole that feels comfortable instantly without any break in period at all!

Are you ready for some fun insight from the shoot? As you could tell in Mariano’s behind-the-scenes interview, the ground is wet in the stadium! While a bit of light rain was always in the forecast, we didn’t expect the torrential downpour that the skies unleashed upon our set that day. It might have ended up being a literal wash if not for some quick thinking by our writers, crew and Mariano himself. The iconic pitcher knew how to stay relaxed during the delay and we built a second fun spot around that concept that you’ll see soon.

Check out the shoes on our website and watch for more from Rivera and Relaxed Fit in the months ahead!


Sugar Ray Leonard_Skechers_FINAL (2)

Skechers is staging the ultimate comeback: signing boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard for Relaxed Fit footwear! The legendary showdown will highlight the all-star fighter in a global marketing campaign across all media this fall.

We asked Sugar Ray about joining the Skechers crew, and he’s ready for a knockout campaign: “I love going toe-to-toe with the best – and I’m ready to put on a pair of shoes as comfortable as Relaxed Fit and go a few rounds for this brand.”

An American boxing icon for nearly 40 years, Sugar Ray’s talent and charisma has taken him from winning gold to 80’s Boxer of the Decade to the face of American boxing on TV: along with his upcoming Skechers campaign, he’s also delivering blow-by-blow commentary on NBC Sports’ Premier Boxing Champions series. He’s our first boxer to enter the ring in Relaxed Fit footwear, joining our “Hall of Fame” sports legends that have included Pete Rose, Joe Montana and Joe Namath, along with the world famous drummer Ringo Starr.

We can’t wait to share Sugar Ray’s new campaign with the world and have this great champ in our corner. Stay tuned for his first commercial later this year!
