TAKE OFF IN COMFORT WITH KELLY BROOK

Hey, Kelly. You look awfully comfortable in first class comfort.

Can Skechers Wide Fit shoes upgrade you into first class, pronto? OK, perhaps it’s a little aspirational – but totally worth a try. It worked for Kelly Brook in her latest spot, where she was swiftly saved from a hyperactive kid (no way that’s a lap baby!) and an ominous set of knitting needles.

bep_7018Inspired by our hugely successful men’s spot with Howie Long, Skechers decided to go mile high for the gals this round as a fun way to showcase our insanely comfortable Wide Fit collection (it’s part of Skechers’ new signature fit system – check out our three fits for gals below). Take it from us – these styles are really, really amazing. You’ve got the roomy fit, the memory foam cushioning, everything – but also the cute styling. Plus they’re easy to slip on and off, so are totally airline-friendly for all of those lovely TSA checkpoints. But we digress. They’re worth grabbing a pair, or three.

Kelly is about as fun as she is gorgeous, by the way. On her downtime, we thought we’d ask her what her favorite pair of Skechers are, and why she’s such a huge fan. Watch her dish here:

Take a look at the sweet style Kelly’s wearing in her Wide Fit commercial (it’s Flex Appeal 2.0 – New Image) and tell us: Would you rather strut around in first class comfort or subject your heels to coach all day long? You be the judge.

Skechers’ new Signature Fit System includes styles in three different widths for women: Classic Fit (B width), Relaxed Fit from Skechers (B/C width) and Skechers Wide Fit (D width).

ROB LOWE RETURNS TO SKECHERS

Sixteen years after appearing in a Skechers Collection print campaign, everyone’s favorite former ‘Brat Pack’ member is back with a multi-platform Skechers Relaxed Fit campaign. The commercial will offer a glimpse into a typical day for Rob as he waxes poetic about comfortable footwear. Known both for dramatic (The West Wing) and comedic (Parks and Recreation) roles, Rob most recently wrapped season two on the CBS series Code Black.

We caught up with Rob on the set of the Skechers commercial shot on the Warner Brothers backlot to cover all aspects of his hectic schedule.  On how Skechers has changed in 16 years, he told us, “It seems like yesterday when I first posed for a photographer wearing SKECHERS. They were good looking shoes then, but I don’t remember them being so comfortable.”  Check out the video below to see Rob explain how much he loves the versatility of the Relaxed Fit collection.

Watch for Rob’s new commercial set to hit television next week!  And be sure to visit skechers.com to find your perfect pair of comfortable Relaxed Fit shoes like the Expected – Gomel that Rob wears in the spot.  You can also find comfort in the red Skech-Air – Varsity that Rob can be seen wearing for a workout in the top image.

We want to hear from you–let us know your favorite Rob Lowe role in the comments!

MUST-DO MONDAY: HEAD OUTDOORS

So technically, spring is still a month away – but we’re already dreaming about all the things we want to do when the weather gets warm (it could be the torrential rain we’ve been having out here – yes, I know that we West Coast folks need to toughen up)…

All jokes aside, it’s been a long, cold winter for many of us, and we can’t wait to get out and enjoy some gorgeous sun. So our motto is, head outside – rain, snow or shine! (We went to Hawaii for this photo!)

Make the most of this long weekend and enjoy the great outdoors – whether it’s up on a mountain, out on a beach or all over the city. Go for a bike ride or a stroll with a friend, breathe in the crisp winter air and enjoy every moment. It’s great medicine for your body, your mind and your soul (not to mention a bonus for those long-forgotten fitness resolutions). Sure, we may have winter for a month longer (thanks, Punxsutawney Phil) but a winter adventure has a charm all its own.

We had to shower the Skech-Air Varsity trainer with kisses; we love everything about this shoe. The seamless knit black and red design, the air cushion and memory foam, and the fact that it’s totally versatile – for the gym, school, and heading around town. We really love this deep red shade, but it comes in all kinds of other colors too (black, navy, gray, you name it).

JOE MONTANA RETURNS TO SKECHERS

joe-2

As fans everywhere prepare for the big game between New England and Atlanta this weekend, we thought what better time to announce that legendary quarterback Joe Montana is returning to Team Skechers! Joe first appeared in a Skechers campaign way back in 2008 when he announced his athletic comeback. Since then you saw him in several Relaxed Fit campaigns and after a brief hiatus he’s back in the fold for Skechers Sport and Casual footwear with Air-Cooled Memory Foam that delivers on total comfort.

The commercials are set to start airing on major broadcast and cable networks later this month, but to tide you over, we spoke with Joe behind the scenes while he was shooting the new spots. Take a look below to hear the Hall of Famer explain how he came to work with Skechers, the family feeling of being part of Team Skechers, and how much he loves the comfort of Skechers Air-Cooled Memory Foam.

Follow Joe’s lead and get comfortable on Sunday with a pair of Skechers featuring the innovative Air-Cooled Memory Foam insole.  With countless sport and casual available now on skechers.com you’re sure to find a pair that will keep you feeling great on your feet as you jump and cheer for your favorite team.  Let us know how you plan to celebrate the Big Game in the comments!
