Energy Lights rechargeable sneakers are one of our hottest trends for kids and teens – take a look and you’ll see why! Boys and girls have been pouring into our stores demanding these (we even have adults trying to get a pair). Whatever your favorite light shade – red, green, blue – this street style can change colors and modes, run for hours, and quickly charge up to hit the streets all over again. These make the perfect gift!

SNOW STOMPERS

Way back when, Skechers started out as a utility boot brand – and these Mecca – Mitigate boots for boys and girls have been a cute classic for years (they’re better than ever now with comfy Skechers Gel-Infused Memory Foam insoles). These are perfect for trekking around the playground and looking all-around adorable during winter break and beyond.

GONE IN A FLASH

For younger boys, these S Lights: Hypno-Flash sneakers have been a big seller. We love how great they look for day as well as night – the cool lime and black fusion ombre design, and the sweet-looking outsole. With features moms and dads love (easy-on Z-straps) as well as kids (cool flashing lights) you can’t go wrong with these.

CUTE TO BOOT

Icy aqua is still a popular trend, and these Skech-Air Deluxe sneakers are such a fresh and cool take on the shade! They’ve got subtle pink pops and silver details that we just love. Plus girls will love walking on actual air in the midsole (and the soft air-cooled memory foam). This is a perfect style that she can use everywhere she goes, from home to school.

THANKSGIVING TRADITIONS

thanksgiving
The feast is almost upon us! While food and drink is almost always at the core, everyone has uniquely special memories or traditions tied to this great holiday. We asked around the office to get some thoughts and stories. Let us know what you love about tomorrow in the comments and have a happy Thanksgiving!

Ashley:
Thanksgiving means anywhere between a dozen and two dozen, and even once, almost three dozen family and friends gathering around a very long Thanksgiving table that stretches from the dining room through the living room (furniture is cleared). After stuffing ourselves, we get out the games. The favorite for the entire group is Taboo. Gets crazy. But then friends leave and a smaller group plays Bannagrams until the tiles blend together from exhaustion.

Ted:
Every year we have a Family game of football for Thanksgiving before the big meal. Even grandpa joins in the fun!

Tyla:
We always choose two people to pull apart the wish bone from the Turkey and whoever wins makes a wish!

Robert:
I usually watch the movie Home for the Holidays – reminds me of my family. Wine is also with me during this special moment.

Ferguson:
After an evening of eating and drinking, my family ends Thanksgiving with games. The adult beverages consumed by all makes it quite interesting…and hilarious!

Selina:
Every year for Thanksgiving, my family flies in from all over the country to stay at my parents’ house in San Diego. The morning of Thanksgiving, we all wake up and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV while my mom prepares my grandmother’s egg casserole recipe. Once the parade ends and the coffee is gone, we pop champagne and turn on the football games while the whole family helps prepare the Thanksgiving feast. After dinner, we gather around the fireplace, sip the finest wines my uncle brings over and share all the things we are thankful for.

Nancy:
LCR aka Left Center Right! Every year my fiance’s family of about 40 pushes several tables together and lines up around them to play. It gets pretty wild!

Lucy:
One year, we had Thanksgiving with friends at our place…we stuffed ourselves with tons of food, blew up a big air bed and all lay on it together, watching movies up on our ceiling with an old projector. A great way to indulge on Thanksgiving night when you can hardly move!

Keanu:
I’m 28 years old and still banished to the kids table because my grandparents are too cheap to borrow a bigger table for everyone. That’s OK because I tell all my nieces and nephews that they’re allowed to have extra pie to make them go sugar crazy.

BLOG TAKEOVER: STRESS MONKEE ON AVOIDING HOLIDAY WEIGHT GAIN

p1070236

Ah, the Holiday Season is in full swing.  This is my favorite time of year. The lights. The fun gatherings. Time with friends + family. Watching holiday movies. Delicious treats. The massive amounts of calories that add up to that obnoxious holiday weight gain.

Yeah, that last bit is the part of the holidays I’d like to skip right over. Just a wild guess, you’d like to avoid that part too?

If my guess is correct, then you are in the right place my friend. I have some sensational news for you! There is a way to make it through the holiday season without gaining weight. Without feeling like a sludge-meister. Without spending so much time in the gym it becomes your second job.

Here’s the best part—it’s simple + it works.

Today I’m sharing with you the three C’s to avoiding the dreaded holiday weight gain. These are the same tips that Team Skechers will be focusing on through the Holiday Season at Skechers HQ.

p1070256

#1 – COMMIT 

You want to be super-fit? Feel incredible? Be ridiculously healthy? Then you must embrace one simple truth. The key to your success lies in your mindset + beliefs. So, this is where we start.

Commit to your vitality. Commit to treating your body well. Commit to the right choices over what’s easy. Commit to eating to fuel your body. (Well, most of the time, we all need to indulge occasionally.) Commit to being a Health Superstar.

Commit. Recommit. And then commit again. Every dang day. We tend to be our own worst enemy. Do not “negotiate” with yourself.

p1070267

#2 – CONSISTENCY

Overdid it at the Thanksgiving table? Had an extra serving (or two or three) of your Aunt Debbie’s famous pumpkin pie? Skipped a workout or two? Come in closer so I can tell you something… It’s okay.

Being fit + healthy isn’t created in one day or at one meal. It’s about the long haul. Let’s stop with the guilt and beating ourselves up. Instead, stay consistent and get back to it!

Do not add to the stress of the holidays by setting unrealistic expectations on yourself. Even doing a five-minute workout can jack up your metabolism and keep you on track.

Not sure what kind of workout to do? You’re in luck! Here’s a super quick metabolic-blast workout video for you to try:

Let me wrap up this “C” by adding that the people that get results are the ones who stay consistent. You can count on that.

#3 – CARBS

This tip is one of my best secrets for getting my clients amazing results when it comes to shedding weight.

You must EARN your starchy/sugary carbs.

If you’re scratching your head right now and feeling lost, let me break it down for you.  I like to split carbs into two main categories.

  • Fibrous carbs = plant-based foods
  • Starchy / sugary carbs = foods made with flour (cookies, cereals, bread, pasta), rice, potatoes, or sugars (from fruits, sweetened beverages, desserts)

You want to lean out + transform your body?  Give this a try:

Only eat starchy / sugary carbs within two hours after working out. Again, this strategy is for someone who is looking to shed excess weight.

Before you sit down to that ginormous holiday meal. Before you go to a party with tempting treats. Before you go out for drinks with friends. Have a sweat sesh beforehand so your body can use the carbs you eat, rather than store them as fat.

Try that quick workout video embedded above the next time you need to “earn” some carbs.

p1070252

There you have it!  Give these 3 C’s a try and make this holiday season fabulous.

Focus on the magic of the season. Spend time over the holidays connecting with others. Be intentional about which holiday treats you will indulge in. Have fun + laugh a lot—it looks amazing on you.

On behalf of myself and everyone at Skechers,

Happy Holidays Team!

I’d love to hear from you in the comments!  Post and let me know how you keep yourself on track during the Holiday Season.

BLOG TAKEOVER: COLDWEATHER STYLE FOR MEN

skechers_workout1_featured

With crunchy leaves on the ground and cooling weather spreading across the country, it’s not hard to notice that we’re deep into the Autumn season. The Windy City can experience extremes of every season so we asked Chicago-based lifestyle writer Kyle Hocking to share a few looks perfect for this time of year.

LOOK ONE: Autumn Beach Walks

Hands down my favorite part of fall are the boots. You can never have too much. Black and brown is one of my favorite color combos and these brown leather Mark Nason Barnsley boots pair perfectly with these black fitted chinos. The only struggle I ever have with boots is getting them off. Even more so after a long commute home in the city on a freezing night. These boots have a side zipper, ideal for easy take-off. Plus – they go with everything.

LOOK TWO: Saturday Morning Workouts

There is nothing I like more than a simple workout shoe or sneaker. Something that goes with everything. Every color, pattern and style. The Skechers Burst – Second Wind sneaker does just that. No matter what outfit I have on – they can always be the go to shoe for early morning walks, jogs and gym routines in the crisp autumn air. They also may be the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn.
