BOBS HITS NINE MILLION MILESTONE

When the BOBS from SKECHERS program began in 2011, we wanted to do what we could to help children that needed footwear.  We never expected it to become the hugely successful movement that it is today. Three short years later and we’ve crossed the NINE MILLION PAIR milestone! It’s truly incredible and we’re humbled by the impact that this program has had on children around the world. While we’re proud of the achievement, our mission continues with ongoing donation events. In fact, two events this past week in Nebraska City, Nebraska, and Evansville, Indiana, resulted in over 1,200 more kids receiving a new pair of shoes. Check out the pictures from the events as we march onward to 10 million pairs donated and beyond!

ON SET WITH DEMI

 

We caught up with pop star Demi Lovato on the set of her new SKECHERS commercial and photo shoot. Take a look at the video for an exclusive behind-the-scenes sneak peak!

The multi-platinum selling recording artist and actress is as thrilled about her new campaign as we are and told us: “I’m so excited to partner with SKECHERS on a global campaign because I love the brand! They’re so comfortable and fit well into my day-to-day life. Everyone loves to be comfortable, and SKECHERS are a perfect combination of sport and fashion.” Demi’s new ad is slated to hit the airwaves this holiday season. Stay tuned for more details in the months ahead!

MEB WINS BOSTON!

Congratulations to Skechers Performance elite athlete Meb for his victory at the 2014 Boston Marathon! Wearing the new Skechers GOmeb Speed 3 shoes, Meb ran a career best with a new personal record of 2:08:37. He was the first American male to win the Boston Marathon since 1983 and the first American overall since 1985.

After the race, Meb reflected on his historic accomplishment at the Boston Strong event:

“A year ago I decided I wanted to win the 2014 Boston Marathon for the people of Boston and for the U.S. When the Red Sox put the World Series trophy at the Boston Marathon finish line during the victory parade last year, I was inspired more than ever to come back and win. With the support of the Skechers Performance Division by my side every step of the way, this victory today belongs to the city and my country.”

Meb first signed with the Skechers Performance Division in 2011 to help launch Skechers GOrun footwear. Since that time, he has won more than five key races wearing Skechers Performance footwear, including the 2012 U.S. Trials and the U.S. Half Marathon Championship in Houston this past January.

You can wear Meb’s race shoes when Skechers GOrun Speed 3 footwear hits stores this Fall.
