BOBS TV STARRING DANIELLE BRADBERY

Early last December we broke the news that Danielle Bradbery, the season 4 winner of The Voice, signed on to be a new face for BOBS from SKECHERS. We’re excited that the talented and inspiring singer’s new TV spot for our charity collection is ready for the world. Check it out here and watch for more of Danielle’s campaign in the months ahead!

Get comfortable for the Big Game!

As the biggest sports event of the year approaches, most of you will be focusing on all the traditional preparations. First you invite all your friends—obviously your house will be THE place to watch on Super Sunday.  Next there’s the age-old question of menu.  Will it be a low key wings and potato chips afternoon?  Or will you go all out with an elaborate spread of gourmet munchables that might possibly include the legendary bacon explosion?  Finally, you’ll stock up the fridge with beer and other stuff for the heathens that don’t drink beer.

With everything planned and sorted, all you need to do is get comfortable. If you’re lounging by the TV or running around helping guests, our Relaxed Fit® from SKECHERS collection offers perfect footwear options to help you feel good during the game. Each features a roomier fit plus our Skechers Memory Foam™ footbed for total comfort. Worn by football great Joe Montana who stars in a new SKECHERS TV campaign launching in march, these are shoes you’re sure to love as well.  From the versatile leather slip-on Montz-Konic to the cool suede slip-on Superior-Pace to the lace-up casual Expected-Gembel boat shoe, there’s endless ways to stay comfortable on game day and beyond with Relaxed Fit footwear from SKECHERS.

Hits from the Holidays

Q:  What were the top selling shoes from the holiday season this year?

A:  More than ever, people are giving SKECHERS for the holidays.  I’ve heard lots of great gift-giving stories recently; here are some of the shoes that made lots of spirits brighter!

1. SKECH-AIR athletic sneakers were a popular present – they’re perfect for those who love comfort, fun colors and sporty versatility.  http://www.skechers.com/brands/skech-air

2. SKECHERS’ light-up shoes made a lot of kids very happy this season, like my nephew who was so thrilled with his Super Hot Lights that he fell asleep in them that night! Many of SKECHERS’ lighted styles even come with an on/off switch, so the lights can last longer than ever.    http://www.skechers.com/brands/s-lights

3. Everyone seemed to be giving the gift of comfort with Relaxed Fit® from SKECHERS – it’s always a good idea to get someone a pair of great looking shoes that are also super-comfortable.  The SKECHERS® Memory Foam insoles make these extra-easy to enjoy.  http://www.skechers.com/brands/relaxed-fit

4. Cold weather this year made warm, cozy styles everyone’s go-to gift choice, and SKECHERS’ BOBS at Home shoes were a great choice.  Made with plush faux fur, these “slippers” also have a rubber indoor/outdoor sole that can take you from relaxing at home and the dorm to hanging out at the coffee shop. And the fact that SKECHERS donates new shoes to children in need makes them even more appealing for the season of giving.  http://www.skechers.com/brands/bobs-at-home

BOBS CELEBRATES THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT

BOBS from SKECHERS embraced the holiday spirit of giving with three shoe donation events during the month of December!

The first was in SKECHERS’ backyard (Los Angeles, California) on December 14 with the Baby2Baby charitable organization. Children and families in need were invited to attend Baby2Baby’s third annual Holiday Party where they received gifts and a new pair of BOBS shoes to decorate.  Santa Claus made an appearance as well, and children enjoyed holiday crafts, treats and music, plus a complimentary lunch with their families.

Next, we traveled across the U.S. for two BOBS donation events in New Orleans.  Teaming up with BOBS retail partner Shoe Carnival, volunteers visited the Slidell-Pearl River Head Start organization for a holiday donation event on December 16.  Santa Claus made a surprise appearance, and children received new pairs of SKECHERS socks and school supplies with their BOBS shoes.

And finally, a visit to Kingsley House in New Orleans, a charitable organization that has been serving the community since 1896.  Children received BOBS shoes to decorate, plus new socks, school supplies and another surprise visit from Santa.  In total, 2,400 pairs of new shoes were distributed in New Orleans through our BOBS charitable partner Fashion Delivers.

We’re looking forward to even more BOBS donation events in 2014 – stay tuned!

The Voice Winner Danielle Bradbery is the New Face of SKECHERS! The Breakout Star Takes Center Stage with BOBS in Spring 2014

Danielle_Bradbery_joins SkechersAll of you The Voice fans have something big to cheer about: the show’s Season 5 winner Danielle Bradbery is about to cover the globe as the new face of SKECHERS! The 17-year-old singing sensation is hitting a high note with a Spring 2014 TV and print campaign for BOBS from SKECHERS, the charity footwear line that just passed the six-million-pair donation mark for helping kids in need.

Danielle’s been on a rapid rise: with more iTunes hits than any singer in The Voice history, her Top 20 Country Songs hit The Heart of Dixie in July, a new self-titled debut album and appearances everywhere from Rolling Stone to People’s Ones to Watch party. She’s a perfect inspiration for the BOBS movement and young women everywhere, and we’re so excited to have her as part of the SKECHERS team.

One of the world’s most successful charity footwear brands, the year-round BOBS collection now has two big names behind the line for women, men and kids: Danielle joins celebrity ambassador Dancing with the Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet, whose huge popularity has driven millions to the collection since its 2011 launch.

JOE MONTANA AND MARK CUBAN EXTEND CONTRACTS

Joe Montana_SP14 Relaxed Fit campaign (2)

We’re excited that two of our veteran all-stars—Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana and billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban—will remain on the team representing our Relaxed Fit® from SKECHERS footwear line.

Joe Montana, now signed through 2015, takes a trip to the boardwalk in his recently wrapped SKECHERS TV ad that hits the airwaves in Spring 2014. Montana’s daughter Elizabeth also appears in the campaign alongside her famous father. “It’s great to carry on this relationship and I know I can keep delivering for the team,” said Montana, who began his partnership with SKECHERS in 2010. “It was a fun experience working with my daughter on set and I think people will love how the finished campaign turned out. Relaxed Fit footwear is comfortable and classic – I love these shoes!”

Now an integral member of the SKECHERS team, Montana constantly impresses with his unrelenting talent and ability to stay totally relaxed under pressure—something he illustrated stopping a crime-in-progress in his currently airing Relaxed Fit TV spot.  (Watch it here.)

Renowned for owning the Dallas Mavericks and his role as a Shark on ABC’s Shark Tank, Mark Cuban proved his value to the team in his humorous Relaxed Fit footwear commercial about skinny jeans. (Watch it here.)  On his contract extension through 2014 Cuban noted, “I always stick with brands I love, so I’m excited to be on this team for another year.”

Watch for more with SKECHERS from these two in the year to come!

P2P Crowd Shot (3)P2P Release Photo_2013

Every October since 2009, SKECHERS has brought together thousands for the SKECHERS Pier to Pier Friendship Walk in LA’s South Bay. And each year, our beach is filled with bigger and bigger crowds, all who want to make a difference for kids with special needs and our schools.

This past Sunday was incredible – an unprecedented 10,000 gathered to help raise a new record: more than $1 million for The Friendship Circle and education foundations that will directly help our children. Thanks so much to the celebrities who joined us, including Jimmy Kimmel, Brooke Burke-Charvet and her family, and Tommy Lasorda. Our presenting sponsor Nickelodeon, the incredible local and national businesses who come out to rally for our children. And to all of you who took part: you’ve turned our beloved event into the largest of its kind for these causes in Southern California, and your impact will be felt for generations to come.
