American TV personality and SKECHERS spokesperson Brooke Burke was recently spotted the FN Platform Show in Las Vegas. Burke, who currently stars in the SKECHERS ProSpeed and Shape-ups Liv by SKECHERS™ campaigns, autographed her book “The Naked Mom” and posed for photos with fans. Burke also gave the crowd a preview of the new SKECHERS GOrun lightweight running shoes – her bright purple pair will be available in stores soon!
Burke has a long history with the brand – she appeared in her first SKECHERS campaign in 1994. Burke recently extended her current contract and will continue as the global face of SKECHERS through 2013.

Have a question about your SKECHERS footwear, but not sure who to ask? See if it’s answered below by SKECHERS’ own Tim the Shoe Guy in this month’s FAQ!
How do I clean my shoes?
Tim the Shoe Guy: I usually advise against washing your shoes in the washing machine – it tends to shorten the life of your shoes, and it may damage leather uppers or fine details. Instead, I advise you to clean leather shoes with a leather cleaning spray or lotion (readily available at most drug stores or shoe stores), and non-leather shoes or parts of shoes with mild soap, warm water and a soft cloth.
Why don’t you make Twinkle Toes or Bella Ballerina shoes for women?
TSG: Sometimes SKECHERS will make a more popular girls’ design in women’s sizes – it’s all based on how much demand there is for a particular style. The Bella Ballerina™ shoes are very new and right now are only available for bigger girls due to the spinning disk design.
What are all the new Pro Series shoes best used for?
TSG: The SKECHERS Resistance Trainer™ Pro-TR shoes have the most lateral support, and is a great shoe for general training and most athletic activities. The SKECHERS Resistance Runner™ ProRESISTANCE™ sneakers are cushioned to activate more muscles in every step – so it’s great for those who want to train or run harder in shorter periods, whether they run, walk or jog. The SKECHERS Resistance Runner™ ProSpeed™ sneakers are the lightest shoes in the Pro series, and are ideal for running, jogging and walking, including racing and competing.
Where can I buy this shoe near me?
TSG: While the easiest answer to this question is often “right here at SKECHERS.com,” we also recommend looking at our Store Locator that will not only show you SKECHERS retail stores in your area, but all stores selling SKECHERS shoes.
What’s new and exciting at skechers.com?
TSG: It’s always an exciting time of year around now – boot season is here, and skechers.com has a lot of boots up now and even more coming in. We’re really excited about our newest generation of SKECHERS Fitness shoes, including the exciting and hot-selling Shape-ups Liv by SKECHERS™. Of course, kids are crazy for light-up shoes like Luminators™ and the newest Hot Lights™ for boys, and the SKECHERS Bella Ballerina™ shoes are very popular with girls.
