MEMORIAL DAY MADNESS

Hike it, swim it, walk it, rock it – it’s Memorial Day! We’re thrilled that summer’s finally here, and are ready to take on the holiday head (and feet) first in style…

In celebration, we asked what our team is up to for the holiday – read on to see where we’re escaping to!

A water ski trip at Lake Tahoe… can’t wait!

   – Vera

Here are some three-day weekend ideas I have done with my family/friends in the past:

1. Joshua Tree National Park – Great camping grounds, I suggest waking up early and watching the sunrise over the rock formations.  Such a beautiful desert landscape.

2. San Diego – nice change in scenery from LA. Quieter and great Mexican food!

3. This is not really a specific destination, but I suggest biking up the coast. Even if the destination is just a couple towns away, it’s still a fun activity to do with a group.

   – Joah

BIG SUR! A quick (ish) trip up the coast to camp, roast marshmallows, hike and go off the grid for a little!!

   – Selena

The great thing about recently moving to Manhattan Beach is truly in fact, the beach! This Memorial Day I am looking forward to spending an extra day with the sand between my toes, breathing in the fresh ocean air.

   – Blake

My only priority this Memorial Day weekend is to sit poolside in Palm Springs and work on my tan while reading a good book. What better way to kick off summer?

   – Amelia

I’m going down to San Diego to enjoy the sun and have a BBQ with a bunch of college friends!!

   – Brooklyn

My weekend plans are to spend all three days at the beach!

   – Rick

Dream weekend:

Take Friday off, depart local airport in a private jet.

Hawaii.. Maui with a side trip to Lanai.

Enjoy the beach, warm water, umbrella drinks, hiking, kona coffee, sunsets and natural beauty with my husband.

Monday… fly home in the private jet.

   – Zoey

My favorite long weekend getaway from LA is up to Los Olivos, CA—a fantastic winemaking destination about two hours away. A few couples rent a big house together and we spend the days visiting all the local wineries, afternoons in the pool and the evenings working the grill to cook tasty dinners. It’s hard to come back on Tuesday!

   – Gunther

Anywhere with water and sunshine! There’s nothing like a long weekend in the sun and a body of water nearby to cool off in. 

   – Darya

I really like to do as little as possible!  Maybe BBQ with friends, check out Fiesta Hermosa, go to the beach, but REALLY early – because I hate crowds and traffic.

   – Quinn

My favorite destination for long weekend would have to be Rosarito, Mexico. Any opportunity we get, my family and friends and drive down, just South of the US/Mexico border, and rent a beach house where we relax in the sand and enjoy each other’s company. It’s the perfect getaway without the hassle of traveling long-distances.

   – Selina

MOTHER’S DAY STYLES WITH ADITI

In celebration of Mother’s Day, we reached out to photographer and blogger Aditi Mayer, who offered an insightful take on how she and her mother approach the special day with love and style.

Throughout the years, I’ve come to see the ways in which style has become, more and more, a medium for exchange and bonding between my mother and I.

For me, there has been an evolution: as a child, you’re dressed at her will; as a teen, you rebel against all that she prefers; and entering adulthood, you find your style is beginning to mirror her more and more. Let the closet sharing begin!

Shoes are a natural piece that one shares: their longevity, durability, and timelessness make it a medium for exchange and expression.

In honor of Mother’s Day, my mom and I came together for a photo shoot in some of our favorite Skechers pieces encompassing two approaches: formal and casual, both with comfort (a big must for us both). Some of our favorite looks are the Parallel – Structure sandal and the Livin Dream sandal (at select Skechers stores).

My mom and I are both suckers for added height to any outfit. But if there’s one thing that links us both, it’s that we need comfort. Wedges and platform styles are our best friends. These two styles have quickly become our daily wears, that transcend from our work lives to events. Jackpot.

 

As much as we love heels, we need our share of the everyday flat — something that’ll translate to hiking terrain, bike rides, and rolling green hills. One of our biggest feats in finding the perfect flat was getting a pair that had aesthetic quality, a color that paired well with many outfits, added support for our flat feet, and a great sense of grip on the bottom.

We’ve prevailed! For the days we need a little extra comfortable loving, or know that the outdoors are in our agenda, we wear BOBS Pureflex – Supastar and Relaxed Fit: Bikers – Lounger (more colors of these are also available at select Skechers stores).

Thanks to Skechers for helping us find our favorite pairs for the spring and summer. We’re ready for a Mother’s Day that can span everything from the outdoors to an evening out!

BIG PAPI MEETS LITTLE PAPI AT THE DERBY

Boston slugger David “Big Papi” Ortiz took a break from retirement for a trip to Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby last weekend.  The all-star traded his baseball uniform for racing silks to hang out with 2015 Triple Crown-winning jockey Victor “Little Papi” Espinoza in the Jockey Room at the famed racetrack. Ortiz recently signed on to become a global endorsee representing Skechers Men’s footwear and Espinoza donned Skechers on his racing pants for the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby.  Both men proudly represented Skechers at the event known as the most exciting two minutes in sports.

Victor was riding California Chrome at the Belmont Stakes when Skechers sponsored the horse in 2014. This time we partnered with the hall-of-fame jockey himself as he attempted to become one of only four to have won the race four times. When we asked Victor his thoughts on Skechers and the big race, he said:

“When I’m relaxing away from the track, I’ve always loved how comfortable Skechers shoes feel. As my career really hit its stride on the West Coast, I’m thrilled to have such an iconic California brand supporting me on this incredible journey.”

Unfortunately his horse, Gormley, didn’t have a win in his legs this time, but Espinoza made a memorable impression with Skechers on the very sloppy race day track.

After twenty seasons in the majors, ten-time All-Star David Ortiz was ready to lay down his bat. Reflecting on his career and the new partnership with Skechers he said:

“While I knew I’d miss things about the game, I’m definitely able to enjoy my retirement in comfort thanks to my new partnership with Skechers. Toward the end of my career it felt like I was playing on two stubs, but now these Skechers have me feeling like I’m walking on the clouds!”

Watch for David’s campaign to kick into gear later this year with a new television commercial. Check back here for behind the scenes details in the months ahead!

SKECHERS CELEBRATES EARTH DAY

Many of us are making plans for Earth Day tomorrow (from cleaning up parks and preserves, to simply being mindful of our impact on our environment) – and we as a company thought that a wonderful way to celebrate the natural beauty of our planet, would be to spotlight some of our styles in one of the world’s most beautiful epicenters.

We reached out to the ever-talented photographer Megan Costello, who gave us a gorgeous glimpse of life on the beaches of Oahu – and she put our styles right at the center of the action: everything from our sandals (Reggae – Decked Out, Reggae – Loopy and Upgrades – Sailin for her, Pelem – Emiro for him) to sneakers (Skech-Air – Element for her, Burst – Shinz for him).

Her images are a breathtaking, moving reminder of how captivating our planet is, and what we stand to gain when we take simple steps to preserve it.

We may not all live on a beach in Hawaii, but there is beauty in every corner of our world. Whether we’re going digital, toting personal grocery bags or riding our bikes a little more often, there are endless ways to start new habits that don’t just improve our planet, but also make us proactive, engaged participants in the world around us.

How are you making a difference on Earth Day and the days that follow? Tell us in the comments!

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR SHOES

There’s something special about a fresh pair of shoes right out of the box. From that new shoe smell to the unblemished look—we all love a brand new pair. Of course the more you wear your favorite pair, you have to understand that a little dirt or grime will show up over time.  Or if you’re unlucky, you’ll accidentally step in mud—or something worse!  And if we’re talking about kids—all bets are off when it comes to keeping anything they wear pristine.

Fortunately, we have some tips to help keep your Skechers in the best shape possible. With proper care you can extend the life and look of your favorite pair.

A FEW NOTES BEFORE WE BEGIN…
Never machine wash light-up shoes—or any shoes that include any form of electronics. The batteries and wires don’t like being fully submerged in water!  For regular non-leather sneakers, first try to hand wash the shoes with cold water using a damp cloth with a mild detergent.

NYLON / MESH SHOES
Most non-leather casual shoes can be safely machine washed—if needed—on the gentle cycle and air-dried. Apply a protectant such as Skechers Water Proofer Spray to guard the shoes from water and stains. For shoes with Skechers Memory Foam™ insoles, allow shoes and insoles to air dry for 10 to 12 hours to ensure the insoles are fully dry.

PERFORMANCE SHOES
Machine washing Skechers GOwalk and Skechers GOrun shoes is not recommended. Start by removing excess dirt from the upper and outsole by using a small brush or towel. Then create a soapy mixture by combining warm water and a small amount (a few drops) laundry detergent. Finally, dip the brush or cloth into the soapy mixture. Wipe down the affected area. Apply a small amount of clean, warm water with the brush or cloth and brush/wipe off the excess soap. Allow the shoes to air dry.

LEATHER SHOES
Apply a protectant such as Skechers Water Proofer Spray to guard the shoes from water and stains before wearing in wet conditions. Use a leather cleaning lotion or spray such as Skechers Athletic Cleanser to clean. Apply a leather lotion or oil periodically to keep the leather supple. Do not machine wash leather shoes.

For smooth leather, the shoes will need cleaning and care with shoe creams or polishes. Select a neutral shade or a color nearest to the color of the shoes. Remove all the dust with a damp cloth. Never polish wet shoes.

For scuff resistant leather, remove minor scuffs by simply rubbing them with your hand. The natural oil in your hand restores the original look of the leather. For deeper scrapes and scuffs, use a soft and neutral polish. This process moisturizes and replenishes the natural oil in the leather leaving a shiny coating that will prolong and sustain the wear of the leather.

SUEDE OR NUBUCK SHOES
Apply a protectant such as Skechers Water Proofer Spray to guard the shoes from water and stains before wearing in wet conditions. Do not machine wash suede or nubuck shoes. When shoes are dry, brush with a dry rubber sponge or soft brush to eliminate any clinging dirt. Regular use of a soft brush will keep the nap of the suede free from dust. Stubborn stains should be removed with commercial stain remover suitable for the suede or nubuck material.

LIGHT-UP SHOES
Machine washing light-up shoes is not advised as it may damage the lights. Clean with mild soap, warm water, and a soft cloth.

DRYING WET SHOES
Never put wet shoes in a clothes dryer or near a heat source—this includes anything that would force dry your shoes like a radiator, tumble dryer, fireplace, hairdryer or any other source of direct heat. The heat source may melt or otherwise damage your shoes. Always allow shoes to dry naturally at room temperature. Stuff the shoes with paper and let them air dry. Use a shoetree to help your shoes maintain their shape when not in use.

ELIMINATING ODOR
Apply a deodorizing product such as Skechers Odor Eliminator Spray to keep shoes fresh and odor-free. This spray is specifically formulated to deodorize and freshen Skechers footwear and you can find it on SKECHERS.com here.

Another effective solution to this issue is Baking Soda or Activated Charcoal (which can be found at most pet stores that sell fish tank/aquarium items). Simply put the powder of your choice in a bag, set your shoes on top of the powder, tie up the bag and let the shoes sit in the bag for 2 to 3 days.
