DESIGNER INSIGHT: INSPIRED IN CHINA

IMG_3911

As Fall 2014 arrived, and consumers started to stock up on cozy things, Skechers’ designers were already hard at work on Fall/Winter product lines for 2015. In fact, August was the start of our Fall/Winter development season. When development kicks into high gear, we’re dispatched all over the world to find the latest obsessions and market trends.

In September, I traveled with the BOBS team to Hong Kong, Beijing and several other cities in China to get inspired. We looked for new styles, details, materials and ornaments in stores, on the streets, and on local residents. Some of the most interesting ideas were found in the most inconspicuous places, such as stores in Hong Kong that were as big as the size of a typical closet in the US. With the BOBS customer in mind, we filtered through all the findings and applied our newfound inspiration to the next generation of footwear. Expect to see lots of SPARKLES next season!

One caveat,  it was 90+ degrees out in the southern part of China when we visited in September. Can you imagine being in sweaters and furs while its that hot and humid? Trust me, it’s not easy. That’s why we had to get a little silly and let our imaginations go extra wild in order to think up new products for next year!

I can’t wait for you to see the results of our trip in 2015!

SKECHERS’ Donation of BOBS Footwear for Kids in Need Surpasses Three-Million-Pair Mark

Just five months after reaching its first million-pair donation milestone, BOBS from SKECHERS today announced that it has donated more than three million pairs of new shoes for children in need worldwide. With a new pair going to a child in need for every pair of BOBS purchased, BOBS has expanded its donation network to include nearly 30 countries around the globe, with a focus on helping distressed families across the United States.

“The word is out about BOBS, and its growing success means that we can give more pairs than ever. We are pleased that we are able to get shoes in the hands of American families struck by financial hardship, those affected by natural disasters, including Superstorm Sandy, and many children in need around the world,” said Michael Greenberg, president of SKECHERS. “We’re so excited to be part of this movement of giving, and to help as many kids as we can. Through the continued support of socially conscious consumers, we believe we can make an even larger impact.”

BOBS unites people with a single goal: to help the approximately 300 million children worldwide in need of shoes due to poverty, epidemics and natural disasters. With the support of its non-profit giveaway partners, BOBS distributes to charitable organizations, homeless shelters, education programs and non-profit groups across the Americas, Africa, Eastern Europe, and mainland and Southeast Asia – and plans to continue expanding the program on a global scale.

Designed for women, men and kids, BOBS is supported by Dancing with the Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet in a global awareness campaign across print, television, online and social media. You can find BOBS in stores nationwide, and in key markets around the world.
