SKECHERS LAUNCHES THE HEALTH CARE PRO SR SERIES

For years, Skechers footwear has been worn throughout the healthcare industry: everyone from doctors and nurses to lab professionals, technicians and more have raved about how cushioned, comfortable and supportive our shoes are, especially for those long days on their feet. So for the pros who spend their days caring for all of us, we’ve made a shoe that cares for them: the Skechers Work Health Care Pro SR series.

As part of our Skechers Work series, this collection is truly the kind of style that medical pros will love. It’s colorfully on-trend, thanks to a wide range of shades to choose from (perfect for all kinds of scrubs… you can even pair them with Skechers’ new scrubs collection that just landed at top scrub retailers; see the offering here)! Skechers Work Health Care Pro SR shoes are also designed to meet the day-to-day demands of the medical industry, from its ASTM-approved slip-resistant soles to 3M™ Scotchguard uppers designed to repel water, liquid and stains. Plus with Skechers’ famed comfort technology at your feet – air-cooled memory foam insoles, flexible construction and supportive heel designs – these shoes are ready to take any shift head-on.

GET INSPIRED WITH MEB IN 2018


It’s easy to begin each new year with ambition to achieve greatness though personal wellness and fitness.  After all, January represents fresh opportunity to reset and push forward without the baggage of what came previously. Of course great plans can easily lead to disappointment when we don’t stick with it and make achieving personal goals a priority.  When it comes to this, there’s no better source for inspiration than Skechers Elite athlete Meb.  Throughout his esteemed career, he built his reputation as one of the greatest American marathoners of all time by never allowing the world to tell him he couldn’t excel.

Meb ran his final competitive marathon in November and if you need some uplifting motivation for sticking with your goals, be sure to check out this engaging five-part documentary about the lead up to his final race—MEB:  The Home Stretch.  The teaser below gives you a taste and head to Runner’s World to see the entire film.

Persistence is key to Meb’s training and you can work his champion-building strategies into your own routine.  Take a look here to learn Meb’s favorite 13 drills that he used to keep his body in world-class competitive shape at age 42.  And you can even ask the man himself for training and motivation tips when he appears Friday, January 12 from 12-2PM at the Skechers Performance booth during the Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Sports Medicine Institute EXPO leading up to this Sunday’s Chevron Houston Marathon.

This is the fifth year that Skechers Performance has been the Official Footwear and Apparel Sponsor of the big race and a limited-edition collection of race products will available at the EXPO and online at skechers.com.  The special ‘Houston 18’ designs for the new Skechers GO Run Forza 3™ and the Skechers GO Run 6™ can be seen below.

Racers and fans attending the EXPO will also have the opportunity to meet Skechers Elite Runner Kara Goucher on Saturday, January 13 from 2-4PM.  And those purchasing gear at the EXPO will have the option to round their purchase up to the nearest whole dollar, with the difference being donated to the Houston Marathon Foundation—an organization that promotes the advancement of running and provides after school running programs, coaching and guidance to over 2,000 youths in the Houston area. Funds raised during the 2018 register round up will help with rehabilitating community parks, trails and green spaces that were washed away by Hurricane Harvey and provide support to partner programs of the Houston Marathon Foundation that were impacted by the storm.

Additionally, through this partnership, Skechers Performance has donated 100 pairs of running shoes and technical running T-shirts to high school students in need throughout the Houston area. And beyond the marathon through its BOBS charity program, Skechers has to date also donated more than 10,000 pairs of shoes, 25,000 pairs of socks and 2,000 lunchboxes to area families impacted by the storm.

Whether you’re just starting on a new fitness adventure or preparing for the ultimate big race in Houston or elsewhere this year, we wish you great success on your journey.  Let us know where you find inspiration to reach your goals in the comments!

SKECHERS PIER TO PIER WALK RAISES $1.8 MILLION FOR KIDS

The Skechers Pier to Pier Friendship Walk returned this past Sunday, its ninth year… and we had another amazing turnout with record-breaking donations for kids with special needs and our schools. More than $1.8 million raised, blowing away our $1.6 million goal!

More than 13,000 people walked pier to pier to support our kids. So many celebrities, from legendary boxer Sugar Ray Leonard and actress, model and entrepreneur Brooke-Burke Charvet, to teens like This Is Us stars Logan Shroyer, Niles Fitch, Parker Bates and Mackenzie Hancsicsak. Special performances by recording artist Asia Monet; NBC’s Little Big Shots’ Kieran Tamondong; America’s Got Talent duo Artyon and Paige; Nickelodeon star Ciara Wilson; dance sensation Larsen Thompson; and actress/singer Jada Facer’s “National Anthem.” And thousands of families and friends and who all came together to support our cause.

Since 2009, our walk has had one goal: to raise funds that support our children. The results have taken shape in countless ways: supporting our amazing Friendship Foundation that encourages kids of special needs to make new friends, engage in new activities and bring people together. A new library that we built for the kids, new technology introduced to educate our children, and much more. And it’s grown far beyond our original goal in amazing ways – from uniting children and communities with a new level of kindness and positivity, to inspiring a sister Friendship Walk in places as far-reaching as China.

Our walk has also become a year-round movement: motivating thousands to take part and contribute every season. Next October’s event will be our 10th year, a huge milestone for us – and participants excited by last Sunday’s event have already hit the ground running with new donations and support. We encourage you to take part and join our movement for making a difference for kids in every community. You can learn more about the SKECHERS Pier to Pier Friendship Walk at skechersfriendshipwalk.com and  facebook.com/SKECHERSFriendshipWalk.

Our profound thanks to all of the companies who sponsored our walk this year, and have made it their business to support our kids: from our headlining sponsor Nickelodeon and media sponsor NBC4 Southern California, to countless sponsors across every industry: Mattel, Moose Toys, The Claudette & Ethan Rickett Care Foundation, Wells Fargo, Ross, Steel Partners, Premier Displays & Exhibits, United Legwear & Underwear Co., Velocity Sports Performance, Vertra, and so many others who give funds and support to provide a better future.

BOBS UNITES AUSTIN FOR HURRICANE ANIMALS

Through BOBS for Dogs, we’ve loved taking part in our national movement to save millions of shelter animals’ lives – and there was no greater opportunity for that than at our Strut Your Mutt event in Austin this fall! The recent hurricanes have tragically displaced hundreds of pets, creating an influx of homeless animals and a new sense of urgency to find homes for them as quickly as possible.

 

And Strut Your Mutt rose to the occasion… announcing a special “two-in-one” event with Super Adoption. In addition to raising funds for local shelters and animal rescue groups, Skechers also donated $10,000 to cover adoption fees for the first 100 animals adopted at the event – and it was a huge success!

Strut Your Mutt is a huge event every year in cities across the country – there are BOBS prizes, treats and toys for the dogs and even special offers on our adorable BOBS for Dogs shoes. We just had a hugely successful Strut Your Mutt event in Los Angeles this past weekend (we raised more than $400,000 in that city alone!) and our national Strut Your Mutt Day will be held in communities everywhere this Saturday, October 28. If you’ve got a dog or are just a pooch lover, head outside and walk with us! You can get more info on this Saturday’s national event here.


Hats off to the Austin Animal Center, Austin Pets Alive, Houston Pets Alive, San Antonio Pet Alive and PAW Shelter of central Texas, amazing organizations that go the extra mile to save animals’ lives – not just in the hurricane’s aftermath, but every day at their shelters. And HUGE thanks to all of you who keep the BOBS for Dogs spirit alive and support our movement to make shelter deaths a thing of the past – through all of your purchases, posts and endless support.
