CHEVRON AND OMBRE: 3D zig-zag prints are back in a big way. Whether it’s high-fashion or dressed down, the bold pattern adds a modern touch to any look. We’ve coupled it with ombre hues on the Equalizer – Expect Miracles: shown in a dazzling black and hot pink combo that can be worn with jeans or a workout at the gym. Totally versatile, totally adorable. This sporty trainer’s got comfort on the brain, thanks to a flexible seamless Skech-Knit design and an air-cooled memory foam insole to cushion your heels in comfort. Check out Demi rocking them here.

A POP OF COLOR: Give your basic black yoga pant a big color boost! Bright and bold is all the rage – and our Flex Appeal – Pretty Please rainbow jogger has it in spades. Known as the “Demi” shoe (from her national Skechers campaign), it’s a fan favorite, and not just for Lovatics: everyone’s getting into this sole’s breathable design, seamless Skech-Knit upper and gel-infused memory foam insole cushioning.

Fun and feminine, this sporty style is comfy as it is cute with a high-flex sole and cushioned Skechers Memory Foam insole.

A new age of interactive footwear has arrived!  Introducing Game Kicks—the shoe that has a built-in memory game.  It’s the perfect way for kids to pass the time during long car rides, boring waits at the doctor’s office, or hanging out with friends. Game Kicks gives boys and girls a fun game to play everywhere they go. Check out the video and you’ll see how Game Kicks is simple to learn and easier to play.  Just start a game and watch the lights, remember what you see, and push the matching buttons in the same order!  Sound effects beep with each light and let you know when you miss.

I HEART SKECHERS

Love it or hate it, it’s Valentine’s Day. At Skechers, we’re expanding its meaning this year, asking the world: what’s your definition of love?

The day may be famous for red and romance, but there are plenty of other ways to imagine the “L” word: a long hug, your favorite song playing on the radio, a hot latte on a rainy morning. That new scarf that makes you feel amazing. Laughing so hard that you cry. And of course, your undying love for all things Skechers.

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. Just enter by tomorrow to win!

BLOG TAKEOVER: FRANCIS KENNETH STYLES THE MALLING OXFORD

I’ve teamed up with Skechers to show you how I style their Mark Nason collection Malling oxfords. Something about this brown leather specifically, along with the stitching and overlaying accents, really stood out to me. Oh, and how could I forget arguably one of the most comfortable insoles ever. What I particularly love about this shoe is its versatility, which I think is pretty apparent in the following looks I put together.

For starters, let me emphasize my bias to smart casual attire. Dressed up enough to hang with the suits, yet dressed down enough to hang in the streets (not to mention, it’s pretty much 70 degrees year round in Los Angeles), this first look embodies exactly that. Paired with a fedora, cardigan, knit tie, and chinos, the Malling are just the kind of oxfords you need to keep you comfortable and stylish throughout your day at work.

It’s Friday, and after a long day at your nine to five, it’s time to loosen up a little. Ditch the tie, unbutton your shirt some, throw on a blazer and slacks, and you’ve got yourself an entirely different outfit to go along with these oxfords! The best part is no one will ever know that you’ve been wearing the same shoes all day and night, and with the soft cushioned Memory Foam insoles, you won’t either.

Saturday mornings (or afternoons for some of us), especially after a long night out, can be the hardest time to get out of bed. At this point, the last thing we’re thinking about is resembling something mildly presentable for the day’s activities. Don’t fret. You can still sport the Malling oxfords with a white tee, jeans, and your favorite jacket, and still look like a million bucks (feeling like a million bucks, however, is a whole other story). Throw on a scarf to keep things interesting, and don’t forget to smile. After all, you still have all of Sunday to recover. Come Monday, it’s business as usual.

‘Tis the season to give… Skechers and Zappos got into the spirit with a holiday party and donation event for Las Vegas children in need.
