SKECHERS PERFORMANCE LOS ANGELES MARATHON WRAP UP

Sixty runners from 35 countries representing all levels of athletes from around the globe came out to Los Angeles as part of the #GORUNLA campaign leading up the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday. It all started at the two-day pre-race expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center where runners, fans and supporters could find an exclusive collection of limited edition footwear, apparel and accessories including the super cool black and white Los Angeles Skechers GOrun Forza 2 seen above.  More than 33,000 stopped by the expo and passed through the massive Skechers Performance booth and had the chance to meet 2016 winner Weldon Kirui and Skechers Performance runner Kara Goucher.

And then on race day over 23,000 runners from all 50 states and 63 countries ran the 26.2 miles from Dodger Stadium to the Santa Monica pier. It was an extremely fun and exciting day for all involved! Several elite athletes wearing Skechers Performance footwear had great finishes including Jane Kibii from Kenya (seen below) who came in second at 2:36:14 and Heather Lieberg from the United States at 2:43:43 for the women as well as Weldon Kirui of Kenya who crossed the finish line fourth among the men at 2:13:24.

We’re also incredibly proud of all the first-time runners this year! Check out Sophie Geoffrion and Chloé Rochette from Quebec, Canada moments after they crossed the finish line—a first marathon completion for both who supported each other through training and every mile of the race. It’s always a thrill to see that joy after crossing the finish line!

After all the hard work it was time to party and relax…and we welcomed our #GORUNLA vip runners, the more then 50 runners from the Skechers team in Manhattan Beach, and all the event supporters at the Starlight Room VIP lounge near the finish line. At this point it was time to catch our breath…the 2018 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon is now less than a year away!  Early bird registration is available through Friday, March 25…learn more at lamarathon.com!

And for some history of the brand and our ongoing title sponsorship of the Los Angeles Marathon, check out this feature interview with Skechers president Micheal Greenberg that aired during KTLA’s coverage of the race!

 

 

 

 

JUMP INTO SPRING WITH SKECHERS KIDS

As much of the country continues to thaw out from the late season blizzard earlier this week, it could be hard to comprehend that the spring season is only a few days away.  Of course kids are the most eager to get outside no matter what and despite the chill in the air, spring arriving on March 20 will signal that warmer weather will help the north and east catch up to the more moderate temperatures already spreading across the south and west.

When boys and girls start bouncing back to the playground, it’s important that they’re feeling amazingly comfortable as they jump, climb, slide and play. And a pair of lightweight sneakers that features a soft Skechers Gel-Infused Memory Foam insole is perfect for the season. For girls, the delightfully colorful and bright Skech Appeal – Rainbow Runner is a go-everywhere pair that’s cool, sporty and totally fun. And for boys, the athletic slip-on Skech-Train offers an easy-to-wear closure for little ones on the move. Both include our signature plush Skechers Memory Foam that kids love.

And these two are just a few super comfy options for kids that feature squishy, squashy and super comfy Skechers Memory Foam!  From sporty styles to light up shoes to everything in between there’s a Skechers Kids style for every boy and girl so check out the full collection on skechers.com to find a perfect pair.  And because we want to make sure you’re excited for spring—even if the cold hasn’t moved away yet…we’re giving away several pairs of Skechers on Monday to ring in the new season!  Check our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages at NOON PST to learn how to enter!

ROB LOWE RETURNS TO SKECHERS

Sixteen years after appearing in a Skechers Collection print campaign, everyone’s favorite former ‘Brat Pack’ member is back with a multi-platform Skechers Relaxed Fit campaign. The commercial will offer a glimpse into a typical day for Rob as he waxes poetic about comfortable footwear. Known both for dramatic (The West Wing) and comedic (Parks and Recreation) roles, Rob most recently wrapped season two on the CBS series Code Black.

We caught up with Rob on the set of the Skechers commercial shot on the Warner Brothers backlot to cover all aspects of his hectic schedule.  On how Skechers has changed in 16 years, he told us, “It seems like yesterday when I first posed for a photographer wearing SKECHERS. They were good looking shoes then, but I don’t remember them being so comfortable.”  Check out the video below to see Rob explain how much he loves the versatility of the Relaxed Fit collection.

Watch for Rob’s new commercial set to hit television next week!  And be sure to visit skechers.com to find your perfect pair of comfortable Relaxed Fit shoes like the Expected – Gomel that Rob wears in the spot.  You can also find comfort in the red Skech-Air – Varsity that Rob can be seen wearing for a workout in the top image.

We want to hear from you–let us know your favorite Rob Lowe role in the comments!

MUST-DO MONDAY: HEAD OUTDOORS

So technically, spring is still a month away – but we’re already dreaming about all the things we want to do when the weather gets warm (it could be the torrential rain we’ve been having out here – yes, I know that we West Coast folks need to toughen up)…

All jokes aside, it’s been a long, cold winter for many of us, and we can’t wait to get out and enjoy some gorgeous sun. So our motto is, head outside – rain, snow or shine! (We went to Hawaii for this photo!)

Make the most of this long weekend and enjoy the great outdoors – whether it’s up on a mountain, out on a beach or all over the city. Go for a bike ride or a stroll with a friend, breathe in the crisp winter air and enjoy every moment. It’s great medicine for your body, your mind and your soul (not to mention a bonus for those long-forgotten fitness resolutions). Sure, we may have winter for a month longer (thanks, Punxsutawney Phil) but a winter adventure has a charm all its own.

We had to shower the Skech-Air Varsity trainer with kisses; we love everything about this shoe. The seamless knit black and red design, the air cushion and memory foam, and the fact that it’s totally versatile – for the gym, school, and heading around town. We really love this deep red shade, but it comes in all kinds of other colors too (black, navy, gray, you name it).

FLEX ADVANTAGE 2.0 – MISSING LINK
