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).

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.

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!

SKECHERS WORK PROTECTS ON THE JOB

work

Did you know that Skechers offers an entire collection of utility and safety footwear designed to protect on the job?  In fact, Skechers has the #1 WORK brand in the United States. We designed the Skechers WORK collection for men and women working in kitchens, hospitals, warehouses, janitorial, construction and more. Every style includes features that protect against one or more dangers including slippery surfaces, impact, water and electrical hazards—each independently tested and certified to rigorous industry standards.

Our slip-resistant outsoles follow the ASTM F1677-2005 Mark II testing standard on clean Red Quarry tile and meet or exceed a result of 0.40 under wet or oily conditions. Styles that offer Electrical Hazard protection meet ASTM F2413-20011 EH requirements and are constructed to resist disruptive discharge to the ground under 18 kV 60Hz AC for one minute with no current flow in excess of one milliampere under dry conditions. Electro-static Dissipative styles are designed to reduce the accumulation of excess static electricity by conducting body charge to the ground following the ASTM F2892 standard.

Skechers WORK Safety Toe footwear offers a variety of impact protection options in the toe cap all meeting or exceeding the ASTM F2413-2011, I/75 C/75 standards for impact and compression.  Steel Safety Toe styles feature a more traditional hard steel protective cap over the toe area.  Lightweight Safety Toe styles feature a toe cap protected by an alloy material created with ultra-lightweight, durable and high-grade materials for superior strength and comfort. Lastly Composite Safety Toe series footwear delivers the same level of protection and comfort using a non-metallic composite material. Select styles also include Waterproof protection designed to keep feet dry for at least eight hours in water or wet conditions tested with the SATRA TM77 method utilizing membrane and seam-sealed construction.

And best of all many styles in the collection are special versions of trendy Skechers profiles designed with a Relaxed Fit to give extra space in the toe area plus a soft Skechers Memory Foam insole for enhanced comfort when you must be on your feet all day. These shoes and boots look great, feel amazing, and help keep you safe throughout your shift.

Take a look at a few styles from the collection above—all three protect against slippery surfaces and electrical dangers. For women who want a traditional low profile sneaker the Relaxed Fit: Eldred SR on the left is a perfect option. Or for those who prefer an easy-on, easy-off design there’s the Relaxed Fit: Cozard SR seen center. And for men, the Relaxed Fit: Flex Advantage SR to the right is a popular traditional sneaker that that gets the job done. Or browse the entire collection at skechers.com to see more options including rugged safety toe boots.

We want you to understand how Skechers WORK slip-resistant footwear can positively impact on your day on the job so we enlisted the great Kelly Brook to help convey the story in the commercial below. Check it out and if you’ve worn WORK footwear on your job, tell us about it in the comments!

TWO TOP TRENDS FOR 2017

It’s never too early to prepare your closet for the hot styles set to dominate in the months ahead. To give you a little help, here’s two top points from our footwear trend forecast for 2017. Follow these points and you’ll be ahead of the fashion curve for the next season. Props to style blogger Lena for the top image—follow itslenatime on Instagram for more!

TREND ONE:
Comfortable & Stylish Street Sneaks

2017 is NOT the year to trade in comfort for looks in the big world of sneaks. You can have it all with styles that deliver on fashion and function. Fortunately, Skechers offers to achieve this look that are on point—here’s a few to consider!

054

The women’s Kort Klassix with a gold trim is a classic choice for going the stylishly comfy route. These sneaks are so trendy that you could dress them up with a stylish maxi for an instantly chic ensemble! Did I mention they are extremely comfortable…?   BONUS PROTIP:  This style also looks GREAT with denim!

012

How about a slip-on to complete your wardrobe this season? Look no further than the OG Double Up-Sleek Street. The blush color will add a simple neutral tone to your outfit. This color will always be trendy, and so will this style. Each of these timeless profiles featured a Skechers Air-Cooled Memory Foam insole to ensure that you can walk for days and still feel amazing.  BONUS PROTIP: Try to stay away from bright colors when wearing a pair like this. Neutral colors such as blush complement other neutrals!

TREND TWO:
Knitted Slip-on Sneaks

For 2017, we’re loving simplicity when it comes to fashion. Looking stylish shouldn’t be so hard, right? Life gets super easy with slip-on shoes and the casual knitted look is coming in hot this year so kick back and check out your options!

079

It’s just the beginning for the knit-sneaks trend and Skechers has countless styles in this category. The Flex Appeal 2.0—Insights in black and white hits this trend perfectly. Easy to coordinate with any outfit, these shoes are multi-purpose and ready for whatever unfolds.  And with the cozy sock-like slip-on design you’ll for sure want this option in your 2017 closet.  BONUS PROTIP: If you’re aiming for the athleisure look, think beyond yoga pants—ripped jeans pair great with these shoes!

030

Tired of shoe laces constantly getting untied or having to tie them at all (I know I am)? Luckily, the 2017 fashion forecast is stocked with slip-on shoes waiting just for you. The women’s Relaxed Fit: Empire – Game On multi-colored sneaker blends in comfort, a flare to your outfit AND the knitted upper trend all in one. Don’t miss out on these!  BONUS PROTIP: When you rocking the colorful sneaks, make sure your outfit is a single solid color—it’ll make the shoes pop even more than they would otherwise!
