This Spring, SKECHERS is partnering with Bealls department stores and Fashion Delivers/K.I.D.S. to donate 27,000 pairs of BOBS shoes throughout Pensacola, Florida. The first giveaway launched on January 24 with a donation event for 350 children in need hosted by Children’s Home Society of Florida. The afternoon included shoe decorating activities, music, snacks and a special visit from characters who posed for fun photos with the children. In the coming months, Children’s Home Society will continue to distribute BOBS shoes across the Pensacola region.
Thank you to all our customers who have purchased BOBS. This simple act is helping thousands of children in need across the U.S. Because of you, we have also reached more than six million pairs of shoes donated worldwide!
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.
From the bright colors, light-up effects and cool blinged-out designs of her footwear to the fun adventures in her animated movie—girls around the world simply love Twinkle Toes. Now our popular girls’ character is bringing her sassy style to Twinkle Smash—the first mobile game from SKECHERS!

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 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!
Q: What shoes does Skechers make in a wide width? What width is considered a wide width?
A: Shoe size and width seems pretty simple, but it’s a bit more complex than it looks. There are multiple options, and everyone’s foot is unique. Luckily, Skechers makes a lot of different size and width options so nearly everyone should be able to find great shoes that fit them.
When we talk about shoe size, we’re really talking about length. Most shoes available in a medium width are made to fit the average foot of that length – the longer the foot, on average, the wider it is at the wide part of the foot. Shoes tend to mainly be available in the medium width, which for women is a B width, and for men is a D width. Skechers also makes shoes in what we call a “Wide Width” on skechers.com and an “EW” width on the shoe box. For women, the Wide Width or EW option is a D width. For men, the Wide Width or EW width is a 3E width.
Skechers also makes certain shoes in an even wider width for men – the Extra Wide Width, or on the shoe box the abbreviation is EWW. That’s a 5E width. Skechers also makes the Relaxed Fit® collection of shoes, which are made to fit roomier in their medium widths. For the Relaxed Fit® shoes, a women’s medium will fit a medium B width but also a somewhat wider C width. For the men, a Relaxed Fit® medium should fit a medium D width or a slightly wider E width.
You may be thinking that this is a lot of alphabet soup, and you’re right. But those people who want or need a little more room in their shoes know when a shoe fits right, and even those who wear a medium width appreciate the roomy feel of Relaxed Fit® shoes. Because when you feel relaxed and roomy in your shoes, your whole day just seems to go a little bit better.
