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.

All 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.
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!
