Get ready for BTS with the hottest looks for teens! Here are our teen merchandiser Jen’s top picks for Fall ’15, and her personal insight on why they’re this season’s must-haves. All of Jen’s styles offer great fashion and comfort for those long walks across the quad: from chic Western-style boots and eye-popping Skech Flex looks, to the BOBS collection, which helps you look good and feel good: Skechers donates shoes to kids in need around the world when you buy BOBS.

Boot 3

Skechers USA – Natives in tan suede (at select Skechers retail stores)

“Riding high into fall: the Western boot is undergoing a major revival, with young Hollywood sporting the rodeo look! This cowboy-influenced trend is popping up everywhere, with lean and sleek profiles ranging from classic black to bright and bold shades. Try it in soft suede with the versatile Skechers Natives tan boot – perfectly paired with a chic skirt, skinny jeans and everything in between.”

Colorful Comfort

Skechers Sport – Skech Flex – Power Play in hot pink

“Be a power player and feel like a celebrity wearing this Skech Flex style. Whether you’re dashing to after-school practice or walking about campus, you’re sure to be spotted in this fierce animal print (see it up close here). Sneakers are not only a commodity but a fashion statement. Say to yourself, who wore it better? Demi or me?”

“In today’s fashion world, sneakers are more versatile than ever.  Adding function to fashion provides comfort and protection to your feet while still being stylish. The benefits of this shoe are many: from bio-dri insoles that wick away sweat and provide superior breathability, to gel-infused Skechers Memory Foam insoles and ultra-soft heel counters that cradle your entire heel for all-around comfort.  Turn heads in this bright pink confection and stand out like a star!”


BOBS from Skechers – Highlights espadrille in black

“Ladies, if you love platforms, then make BOBS platform espadrilles an absolute must-have in your wardrobe! An effortless silhouette and added height make this the sought-after trend. What makes these shoes even more fabulous are the extra comfy Skechers Memory Foam insoles. Slip on these beauties with a flowy day dress, T-shirt and jeans, or a one-piece jumper. Walk tall and imagine the school hallway as your runway!”

Flower Bobs

BOBS from Skechers – Flexpadrille – Tropical Punch casual flats in black and orange

“Dare to be noticed in this season’s vibrant prints. These pretty espadrille-inspired flats bring a touch of summer to your fall wardrobe. And BOBS from Skechers is right on target with these eye-catching Flexpadrilles. The upper features a refreshing tropical floral design that gives these slip-ons a laid-back look. Not only are these adorable, they have soft Skechers Memory Foam insoles that will have you walking from class to class in comfort and style. Remember, bold prints are the most important accessory – so have fun with it! Mix colors and prints to show off your sense of style. Or keep it simple with classic white. The best is, they go perfect with a short skirt and jeans.”


Hey Moms & Dads! Back to school is almost here – are your kids ready to rock the halls in the latest styles? We asked our kids’ merchandisers Jennifer and Georgia for the hottest fall looks, and here are their top picks.


Out of this World.

What they’ll love: “The future is now! According to experts, we’ll be able to set foot on other planets in just a few years. These Mega Blade 2.0 styles are perfect for the job! The royal blue style has a great color pop, and the silver black look is perfect for the hot metallic trend for Back To School 2015. With an easy slip-on, Z-strap design and these way-cool ‘blade’ shock absorbers, he’ll be leaping in the air.”

What you’ll love: “Easy-close straps, a non-marking outsole, and loads of comfort features for little feet: from the soft fabric lining and padded tongue and collar to cushioned comfort insoles.”


Athletics that Rock Comfort and Cool.

“As back-to-school shopping kicks off, boys are taking a walk in dad’s shoes or pulling from their older siblings with mini-me versions of their lightweight athletic shoes. Athletic remains the lead category for back-to-school. Flex Advantage’s FlexSole shock absorbing lightweight midsoles and ultra-flexible traction outsoles will keep him active on the playground – and the 3D printed toe overlay and reflective lace and side-striping details exude the cool factor on the Nitrate. And don’t forget the gel-infused memory foam: he won’t want to take them off!”


Sporty Metallic Coolness.

“Metallics in the fashion world have become a very exciting trend. It gives apparel and footwear pieces an edgy, fun look. Skechers has added a piece of their own with an exciting new line in the girls’ division. The Shoutouts are mid-high and lower profile sneakers for girls that feature metallic textures and fun metal embellishments. Gunmetal and Gold stand out beautifully, but at the same time can be considered clean and classic. Shoutouts – Zipsters rock studs and zipper hardware, while Shoutouts – Shorty Shouts has unique quilted side panel treatments. Both these looks are on a cool sporty skate outsole. The collection provides something fresh and exciting that an older trendy Skechers girl will love and ‘shout out’, FASHIONISTA!! Very cool!”

So-Cute High-Tops: from Bling to Boucle.

“Little girls love rhinestones, bling and sparkles. The new Skechers Twinkle Toes High Top collection has it all! These cool sneakers provide a fun look to any outfit. Our signature rhinestone toe caps and light-up features continue throughout the high-top category, but also have trend-right elements. Metallic textures and fun hardware are new to the collection and all can be found on Shuffles – Heart & Sole. And navy is the new black! It can be paired with classic jeans for a casual look or with a fun skirt to add flare.”

“Another trendy element that fits perfectly on a Twinkle Toe high-top is boucle, such as on Chit Chat – Sweet Seekers. Multi-color boucle textures, pink eyelet sparkly trim, a satin bow and heart charm are all combined to give this high-top a feminine, girly look. Plus one other special feature on this Limited Edition style: gel-infused Skechers Memory Foam!  What little girl wouldn’t love this in her sneaker collection? Perfect!”

Comfort with a Pretty Twist.

“Comfort and fitness is a huge trend that’s being followed by many departments in the fashion world. The styles found in the Skechers Girl Sport collection include flexible outsoles, Skechers Gel-Infused Memory Foam and comfy textures. Bright colors are a great trend which Skechers covers in a fabulous, girly way. On the Skech-Air look, girls can have a fun bouncy outsole which provides comfort and also stand out style, such as on Skech-Air – Jumpabout.”

“A variety of colors and patterns help cover every type of girl and can meet any BTS need. This collection covers both lace uppers for a sporty older look, as well as bungee uppers for quick closures to help out the younger girl, such as on Skech Appeal – Ziggy Zag. These looks can be sneakers for everyday school needs, afterschool activities or gym shoes.”

As we close out July with only one full month left this summer, it’s the perfect time to think about what music is sticking with us in 2015. Of course our very own Demi Lovato’s megahit “Cool For Summer” is a serious contender for the hottest track of THIS summer. (Lovatics can vote now for best fandom at the Teen Choice Awards!) We polled the office to see what else everyone is rocking out to during these hottest months of the year. Check it out and let us know your favorite song of summer in the comments!

Janet Jackson feat. J. Cole – “No Sleeep
I am digging “No Sleeep” (yes 3 e’s) – It has a cool, summer groove going which would be perfect for a day at the pool. Enjoy.

Sheppard – “Geronimo
I have been playing Geronimo by Sheppard on repeat this summer!  The upbeat song helps me get through my summer workouts with a smile on my face.  No easy task!

Rupert Holmes – “Escape (The Piña Colada Song)
Because I love piña coladas and getting caught in the rain.

Ice Cube – “Today Was a Good Day
It’s an old song but I know all the lyrics so that makes me feel pretty cool. It’s such an LA song. Every LA native know this song. I mean every day that you don’t have to use your AK is a good day, right?

Eagles – “Peaceful Easy Feeling
This is one of those classic songs that just sounds like summer. Whether you’re taking a road trip, laying on the beach or jetting off to another country, “Peaceful Easy Feeling” (along with other Eagles hits) will get you in the right mood for time well spent in the summer sun.

Ellie Goulding – “Burn
All though it was released earlier in the year it is a song that I continued to listen to throughout the summer. Ellie’s voice is very relaxing and the song has an uplifting vibe to it. I definitely recommend it to all!

Meghan Trainor feat. John Legend – “Like I’m Gonna Lose You
Beautiful message and it features the beautiful John Legend!

Elle King – “Ex’s & Oh’s
Because summer is the season for dating, and this song is all about the crazy ups and downs you experience in the dating world.

Katy Perry – “Roar
I don’t really have a choice. My daughter loves this song so it repeats 15-20 times per day in my car. I’ve kind of forgotten what other music sounds like.

Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars – “Uptown Funk!
When you hear this every day in the office next to yours, you know it’s the song of the summer (or at least someone’s summer). Great beat, great video and (sigh) Bruno Mars.

Jamie XX feat. Young Thug & Popcaan – “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)
It’s probably the most fun-filled track on The XX co-founder’s insanely fantastic solo album. As this plays it’s easy to imagine yourself with a drink in hand laughing under the sun with your closest friends.


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!


You spent all winter working on your beach body.  Here’s a few of our favorite ways to maintain that level of fitness through the rest of summer.



The great thing about bike workouts are the many options available. Find adventure on mountain trails or get in the zone on a long distance road trek. Any way you approach it, you’ll be increasing your cardiovascular strength with each passing mile. And if you add cycling to your regular regimen, it won’t be long before you see…and feel…a difference in your calves, thighs and buttocks with reduced impact on your knees and hips compared to other intense activities. (Start riding in the Skech-Air Infinity.)



Not only is it refreshing to take a dip in the hot sun, swimming is one of the most efficient forms of exercise out there.  As a cardiovascular activity it offers a surefire way to strengthen your heart and lungs that steps up easily with your fitness level and endurance. Best of all it’s a full body muscular activity that’s extremely low impact. Swimming activates muscles from your arms to your chest and core through to your legs.  It’s great for injury rehab too…so if you’re having knee issues from running, you can keep up your routine in the water. (Slip into The Persistent when you get out of the water.)



It really just comes down to standing up and moving. In the advent of fitness trackers, we’ve all started taking the long way on foot to get that step count up. From a stroll around the block to a half marathon jog–running and walking is the easiest and most accessible way to get your blood flowing. And no matter where you find yourself this summer, it’s the one fitness activity that you’re always able to experience. (Skechers GOwalk 3 will keep you moving.)



The over 20 million Americans who practice yoga regularly have a deep understanding of the benefits that this Eastern practice can have on fitness and well-being. Learning the key poses that stretch your body from core to fingers and toes plus key techniques for improved balance, focus and breathing will help reduce the chance of injury and recovery in other activities. Check out this infographic and benefits rundown from the Huffington Post and you’ll be convinced to become master of your downward facing dog. (The Stretch-Fit – Glider coordinates with your yoga style.)



When you see someone standing on a board while paddling (otherwise known as SUP) across the horizon, it looks serene and peaceful. That it definitely is, but in reality it can also be an intense workout that activates your core. With proper form, SUP is a fantastic activity for building ab strength while the constant tiny adjustments required to maintain balance work your leg muscles too. Learn the basics in a calm, protected harbor or marina, then dial it up when you face the waves. Either way it’s low impact, high calorie burning, super fun and gets you out on the water!  What could be better! (Carry your board wearing comfy Skechers on-the-GO – Flow sandals.)

How do you like to keep up your activity level through the warmest time of year?  Let us know in the comments!


We’re thrilled to share that BOBS has passed the 12-million-pair mark for new shoes donated in the US and around the world – and we’re so excited to see our shoes lifting so many kids’ spirits around the globe.

Our latest stop: Cincy Sports Fest in Covington, Kentucky, where we partnered with Shoe Carnival and K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers to donate more than 1,200 pairs of BOBS to local kids in need. It was a great day for baseball fans: with legendary Pete Rose on-hand to sign autographs, and Cincinnati’s Florence Freedom mascots helping the kids paint their new shoes at decorating stations. Thanks to CEI Sports Inc. and the Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission, the families also enjoyed complimentary passes to the baseball convention, along with the Covington Bicentennial Celebration and ferris wheel.

We’re so excited to share every new season of BOBS, knowing that each new collection means more shoes for you and more chances for all of us to give shoes to kids everywhere. Thanks for all of your help since BOBS started… here’s to the next million!


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!
