On May 16, BOBS from SKECHERS traveled to Santa Rosa, California to donate 1,000 pairs of shoes to the children of Community Action Partnership of Sonoma County, Head Start/Early Head Start, and School Readiness programs in Sonoma County. Children gathered to receive a pair of BOBS and even had a chance to decorate them! The inspired and excited kids were able to use their imagination to create fun, personalized, fresh-looking shoes.
We love when our events inspire others to reach out to their community. In Santa Rosa, one local dentist joined in on the philanthropy by donating toothbrushes to the youth. No matter the product or event, we appreciate those who seek to create positive change in the world. That is why we want to say thank you to all the BOBS supporters! Whether you’re purchasing another pair of BOBS or simply giving back in your own way, we could not reach the milestone of more than 8 million pairs donated worldwide without your help.

We figured one Hall-of-Fame Joe wasn’t enough, so now “Broadway” Joe has joined the team of Joe “Cool” in representing Relaxed Fit from SKECHERS footwear. Set to air in Fall 2014, Joe Namath’s ad campaign will feature a new television commercial utilizing the same humorous tone as ongoing Relaxed Fit spots starring our other legendary Joe (Montana) and Mark Cuban.
We asked Joe Namath what he thinks about his upcoming commercial:
“I’ve loved what SKECHERS has done with this campaign so far and I’m excited be joining the team. The Relaxed Fit shoes really are as comfortable as they say, and I look forward to working with SKECHERS on what will be a fun commercial that my fans will enjoy.”
One of the most exciting quarterbacks in NFL history, Joe Namath entered the league after winning a national championship with the Alabama Crimson Tide in 1964. He was the first quarterback to throw for 4,000 yards and was named MVP when he led the New York Jets to victory at Super Bowl III in 1969. Namath retired in 1977 holding seasonal and career records for most games with 300 yards or more passing yards.
Stay tuned for more info on “Broadway” Joe’s new ad!
We’re excited to announce that the Skechers Performance Division has signed long-distance runner Kara Goucher to join the Skechers Performance Elite Team.
