DESIGNER INSIGHT: QUARTZ ADVENTURE

Trail_1

Women’s outdoor shoes with performance features commonly look like men’s styles made in smaller sizes. It seemed like the market forgot that women are buying women’s hiking shoes. It was so obvious to me to design femininity and sleekness into our outdoor footwear.  I looked to nature for inspiration (of course!). I thought about all the beautiful things we find on a hike, some of my favorite discoveries are gemstones and crystals.  Using this inspiration, I designed the Quartz construction for our Skechers Adventure Relaxed Fit collection. Its rugged and feminine design is so in tune with nature. Floral lining, diamond shaped lugs, strong and soft materials, and on-trend pop colors make this group stand out above the rest in the outdoor market. All this beauty plus the function found in sport shoes.  And the casual styling makes it easy to pair with any outfit.  I’m so excited about this product and I can’t wait to see these beauties on the trail!

SKECHERS LOVES MOMS

1IMG_3692

Welcome to the story of moms everywhere: sleepless nights and play dates; homework and school meets; coaching sports teams, student drivers and young grads ready to tackle their dreams.

Whether you’re a mom-to-be or a well-seasoned (and well-beloved) grandma, you get it: kids are some of the messiest, loudest, most challenging creatures in the world – and you wouldn’t trade them for a second.

This Sunday, it’s time for all of you to celebrate one special day: to relax, unwind, and hopefully enjoy some much deserved “me” time. Kick up your feet in a fresh pair of comfortable sandals like Skechers Stretch Weave – Parallel wedges (shown above, relaxing at the park). And reflect on the amazing year you’ve had (you did ALL that?) and the equally crazy, memorable year still waiting in the wings.

At Skechers, we’re taking time out to honor Mom with the Skechers Loves Mom sweepstakes. Post a photo that celebrates motherhood, and you could win two pairs of Skechers. Enter by Friday to win!

Clockwise from upper left: garden time with Skechers Reggae – Stir It Up; a mom-to-be moment in Skechers Stretch Weave – Unbeweaveable with multi hues; brunch al fresco in Skechers Stretch Weave – Silver Linings in bronze. All at Skechers retail stores; select styles at skechers.com.

BLOG TAKEOVER: @BEACHYOGAGIRL KERRI VERNA POSES IN SKECHERS

Can I share some secrets with you? I have been a fitness professional for over 12 years, teaching everything from kickboxing to now exclusively yoga. The last three years of my life has been dedicated to yoga on the beach, which means I spend most of my time barefoot, with sand between my toes. Despite my sun-kissed barefoot life, this Yogi still loves a good sneaker! The dilemma I have most of the time is mixing comfort, fashion and my lifestyle.

Most yoga studios will make you remove your shoes before entering the sacred space. However, outside the yoga studio there are no rules and shoes can be a great benefit to your practice. If your yogi toes are not flexible or you are trying to work on something new like jumping back into chaturanga, shoes will give you the added support you need to feel secure. I am always amazed at how much better I balance in a handstand when I have shoes on. Wearing shoes not only helps my handstand, but also makes for a popular photo on Instagram!

I first found Skechers when my two boys asked me to buy them for their first day of school. My little darlings of course were attracted to the flashing lights and easy-on straps, but I as a mother loved how durable they were. Year in and year out they asked for another pair of Skechers and I was always impressed with the quality. I decided to check out a few pairs for myself and fell in love with not only their fashion but also comfortable fit. As a mom who is sometimes on a tight budget, but loves fashion, Skechers is the perfect brand for my family and me.

I love to feature brands that I not only wear in my real life, but also make for an interesting image on Instagram. Skechers is a perfect fit for this Instagram Yogi Mom. I truly value my followers and want to represent companies that I feel are something that I can endorse and recommend to the people that follow me.

My life isn’t all about the beach, yoga and children. I also love to dress up from time to time. Skechers has many wedges and cute sandals for me when I’m not busy being a mother and teacher and my husband and I get to go out on a date.  If you are looking for a cute, affordable, comfortable shoe, try out Skechers. If you strike a pose in your cute new shoes for Instagram, don’t forget to tag @beachyogagirl!

Since Kerri began her Instagram account three years ago, fashion, yoga and photography have helped grow @beachyogagirl to 750,000 followers. Learn more about Kerri at beachyogagirl.com.

SPRING SANDAL SEASON STARTS NOW!

38392 BKNT

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. For more details, follow @skechers on Instagram.

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.

What is the inspiration behind this style?

I was inspired to design this boot while shopping for a big, cozy cardigan sweater to wrap around me and keep me warm… I thought it would be great to do a boot in a great sweater material to wrap your feet and legs in cozy knits.

Over leggings or skinny jeans.

Where would you wear it?

Anywhere… for fashion or function.

What is the hottest color or trend in this collection?

There is a big woven trend right now… the sweater shaft has a woven look to it. Arctic fur and other soft tonal furs are also really popular.

Product details:

Patterns or materials on the boot?  Woven look sweater (knit) shaft, suede rand and heel to protect from weather.  Soft, tonal fur collar and upper shaft lining.

Closure details?  Rope tie-on collar with beads.

Boot lined? The upper shaft is lined with faux fur.
