Celebrities in SKECHERS

ON THE DREAMY SET WITH KELLY BROOK

Our favorite British model and actress Kelly Brook was on set last month to shoot a new commercial for the Skechers with Air-Cooled Memory Foam collection and she’s inviting you to join her behind-the-scenes for an insider look at the production! We filmed Kelly on location at a beautiful seaside home near Malibu, California—check out the video below where Kelly offers a sneak peek at the dream-like pool deck set. She also shares why she’s so fond of the incredibly comfortable collection and adds some insight on how the variety of colors and looks offered is perfect for her current style.

After you hear Kelly’s thoughts on the new campaign, be sure to take a look at the complete commercial as well—soon to be seen on televisions everywhere!

WORLD SKECHERS DAY

SKX GRoup ShotOn May 29, 1992—24 years ago—an exciting idea became a reality when Skechers was officially incorporated in sunny Manhattan Beach, California. Things were a bit different in those early days. Business was conducted from a beach house and the only style available was a logger boot at the forefront of grunge era trends. While we’ve always been proud of our heritage, many styles have come and gone over the years, but that original Cascades boot for men remains in the collection even today!

Skechers quickly gained popularity and before anyone could blink, the collection expanded to women’s and kids’ footwear and currently there’s more than 3,000 styles available in over 160 countries around the globe. What started out as a trend-right lifestyle brand now includes cool light-up shoes for kids, the charity-focused BOBS collection and an entire award-winning Skechers Performance Division that made an instant impact in the running world with champion elite marathoner Meb Keflezighi. And with Skechers Memory Foam, we’re now tops when it comes to comfort. It’s been an amazing ride!

Along the way we’ve brought some amazing celebrity talent—Britney, Christina, Carrie, Ashley, a man of iron, and the always infamous Kim.  Now it’s all about multi-platinum recording artists Demi Lovato and Meghan Trainor who both recently launched fun new ads for awesome cool new collections. And there’s the world famous drummer Ringo Starr, model and actress Kelly Brook, as well as TV personality Brooke Burke-Charvet–she first modeled for Skechers in the early ’90s! Plus, Joe Montana is back and Howie Long is on board for the 2016 football season.  That’s all in addition to Meb and elite runner Kara Goucher plus pro golfers Matt Kuchar, Belén Mozo and Colin Montgomerie.  Whew!  Still going incredibly strong at the ripe age of 24!

#WorldSkechersDay commemorates this great occasion in Skechers history! Some of our fans shared images of their favorite Skechers old and new on social media. When were you introduced to Skechers and what is your all-time favorite Skechers style?  Let us know in the comments and see you next year for the Skechers Silver Anniversary when we celebrate a quarter century!

BEHIND THE SCENES ON MEGHAN TRAINOR’S NEW TV SPOT

It started with her print ad and then the #MTrainSkechers campaign took over your television! In her new commercial that launched last month, Meghan Trainor finds herself in a nightclub that’s just as cool and fun as the totally retro Skechers Originals collection shoes that she’s wearing. The shoot was a family affair for all involved with Meghan’s parents and brother on-set for the elaborate production. Skechers president Michael Greenberg even stopped by with his daughter to say hello to the Grammy-winning pop star.

It’s all about fresh and new for Meghan right now.  From her striking red hair to her sophomore album Thank You releasing on May 13 to the sweet Skechers Originals kicks you’ll see in the spot. As she told us, “The new album is very, very different. Our latest songs coming in are very urban and hard and hit you in your face with a little bit of funk and I love that! I love how different it is but you can feel my influence in my throwback love. I think it takes confidence to take risks and be original. Skechers has truly embraced this message in the new campaign and I can’t wait for my fans to see it!”  Take a look at the video below for a sneak peek with even more insight from Meghan on her album, her hair change and shooting the new spot!

The commercial features Meghan’s hot new single “NO” that hit #1 on iTunes. Now that you’ve gone behind the scenes, in case you haven’t seen her complete Skechers Originals spot, it’s right here to check out!

OZZIE SMITH LACES UP IN RELAXED FIT

When it comes to baseball, “Opening Day” is such a big event that it now stretches across two entire days! After a few match ups yesterday, the season truly and fully kicks off today. These are the spring days filled with hope for players and fans in every major league city. With 162 games yet to go, every team still has an equal statistical chance to play into October. It’s also the perfect day to launch a campaign starring the newest member of the Skechers Relaxed Fit team—legendary Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith!

Ozzie’s debut Skechers commercial premiered Sunday. In the spot, the former player compares his trademark double play skills with the style and comfort found in the Relaxed Fit footwear collection. We caught up with Ozzie to ask him his thoughts on Skechers:

“I’m excited to be working with Skechers on this campaign because they make some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I’ve been a fan of the brand for years, and I love how Skechers Memory Foam feels so relaxing on my feet.”

Check out the new commercial below and visit skechers.com for the latest styles in the comfortable Relaxed Fit footwear collection for men!

MUST-DO MONDAY: SUGAR RAY LEONARD ON MOTIVATION

Let’s be real…Monday is the one day that almost everybody dreads.  It’s the day we get back to work, the day we go back to school, or it’s our day back from an amazing weekend.  I will be the first one to admit this.  It’s hard to find the motivation to get yourself to get to the gym, to go for a run, or even to do anything that’s active.  I can honestly say it’s tough for me!  Yet, staying in shape is something we must do.

MAIN IMAGE

Here’s the trick. Take it in intervals. For example, if my normal routine is to run 4 miles, maybe I can start my Monday by running 1 mile.  If I normally do 100 sit ups, maybe I’ll do 50 on Monday.  Doing something is better than nothing.  Exercising doesn’t always have to be going to the gym or going for a run, either.  Participating in group activities such as swimming, hiking, biking, or even dancing are all great.  It’s important that you have fun doing it! For me of course, it’s boxing. Boxing is a total body workout and also relieves stress on that big punching bag! Be sure to remember that boxing exercises are just for a workout. So don’t punch a person!

Of course, working your way into a Monday activity doesn’t just apply to exercising either. Mondays are tough regardless. It can be tough to get yourself back into work, back into school, or anything that involves getting out of bed!  The one thing that we must do is to again, ease into it.  After a long weekend, it’s easy to feel like you’re behind.  You may have hundreds of emails to go through, piles of work on the desk, or several meetings to attend to.  In life, just like in exercise, it’s important to take breaks once you start to feel overwhelmed.  Just a quick break can increase your productivity and decrease any mistakes you may make or fatigue you feel! It definitely helps when you have a trainer* to motivate you and watch your form. Form is very important when cross training in exercises such as Pilates which helps to keep my core strong!

Another reason to motivate yourself on Monday is because a healthy and active lifestyle reduces your risk of cardiovascular disease and reduces your risk of type 2 diabetes.  I grew up seeing my dad and my friends struggle with complications of diabetes, and it’s important to fight it in any way that we can.  My Foundation, The Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation, is committed to funding research and creating awareness for pediatric type 1 & 2 diabetes. We also strive to support programs that help children lead healthier lives through diet and exercise.

Of course on Monday, and every day, comfort is extremely important to me.  Wearing appropriate clothing and having comfortable shoes makes it easier to get through any day or activity.  That’s why whenever I exercise, I always wear my Skechers. Skechers keep my feet comfortable and it allows my body to do and handle more.

Monday can set the tone for your entire week…let’s all try to start the week out on a good note!
