Boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard is back in the ring in an all new commercial for the super comfortable Skechers with Air-Cooled Memory Foam footwear collection. Filmed on location near downtown Los Angeles, the shoot happened to be right around our favorite boxer’s birthday and of course we had to celebrate. Can you believe he has reached the ripe young milestone age of 60?
Age means nothing to the star athlete who proved that he’s in far better shape than most people half his age—and certainly everyone else on set that day! Go behind the scenes with Sugar Ray as he explains how much he and his entire family love the comfort of the new collection. Plus, get word from the man himself on why he returned to boxing after originally retiring at 25 and his current focus in life.
As he explained to us, “I’ve been blessed in more ways than one and if I made an impact in the ring, I want to make an even bigger impact outside the ring by helping others!” These days Sugar Ray is making a difference through his Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation by raising awareness and funding research for pediatric type 1 & 2 diabetes plus promoting active lifestyles for kids. He has also appeared at the annual Skechers Pier-to-Pier Friendship Walk benefiting children with special needs and education.
We’re fortunate to have this motivated, fun and inspirational legend back in our corner on a new campaign. Check out Sugar Ray’s complete commercial for the Skechers with Air-Cooled Memory Foam below. Watch and see why a man who understands the importance of footwork things Skechers is the undisputed champion of comfort.
