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.

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!

BLOG TAKEOVER: MEN’S STREET STYLE IN SKECHERS

It’s 2017! A new year and an entirely new chance to find a solid resolution – why not make yours to be more stylish? Switch up your look by finding new ways to wear your favorite pair of Skechers with Samuel Anthony of The Frenchy Toast.

3bAs editor of The Frenchy Toast, my goal is to keep men’s fashion simple. I strive to provide men with tools to help them integrate the latest trends into their daily lives. I am thrilled to partner with Skechers to share tips on achieving the perfect street style look.

4aMy business partner, Erik Velasquez (AKA @CasualFridaze51) and I  partnered with photographer Natalie Miller to shoot these looks in downtown Phoenix. Although Erik and I shoot each other every week, it was exciting for us to both be in front of the camera. It sounds crazy, but it was actually our first time shooting together!

I’m pleased to report that it was a huge success! We dissected and analyzed the current street style trends and simplified them into the following four tips:

TIP #1: Get more use out of your athletic shoes (get Samuel’s Flex Advantage 2.0 – Missing Link style here) or casual sneakers (get Erik’s Crossroads shoe here) by dressing them up with a lightweight sweater or collared shirt.

TIP #2: Switch up your next casual look by mixing your favorite pair of Skechers sneakers (get Erik’s Bunker soles here || Samuel’s boots at select Skechers stores) with a heavy knit cardigan.

TIP #3: Pair Skechers work boots (get Samuel’s Skechers Work Relaxed Fit: Pettus – Grafford St boots here || Erik’s Bruiser boots here) with dark denim and a flannel for one of our favorite go-to outfits.

TIP #4: For the quintessential street style look, grab tailored joggers and pair them with the all-new Bunker sneakers from Skechers (get them here) along with a fitted bomber jacket.

ON TREND WITH BLACK AND WHITE SNEAKERS

Want us to let you in on a little secret? If you are one of those people who likes simple and trendy but struggles to choose between the two, the time is NOW to jump on the Black and White sneaker look. Team Skechers is here to help you introduce this hot current style into your daily fashion!

LOOK 1: MRS. FASHIONISTA

Fads may come and go but having those basics on your feet won’t because of one simple fact: they pair with EVERYTHING!  You can style them with velvet purple overalls or funky patterned pants. No matter how out there or fashionable the outfit, a sneaker like the black leather Omney – Kort Klassix or knitted white Skechers Burst – City Scene will do just the trick.

LOOK 2: STREET SLEEK

This is the ultimate unisex trend, so men pay attention too! Whether you need black, white, or black AND white sneaks, Skechers has got you covered for all occasions. The comfy casual man can rock this look in a pair of DressKnit Mark Nason Monza slip-on loafers and the street sleek gal can work it in the retro Skechers Originals OG 90.  No matter how you hit the town, this look can work for you!

LOOK 3: ATHLEISURE

With countless options for both men and women that fit the B&W sporty sneaker trend, you won’t ever need to think about coordinating an outfit for those 2017 New Year gym sessions!  To complete the gym look, wear a colorful pair of work out shorts or top with your black and white sneakers. The color will pop while also bringing attention to the shoe!  Start sweating your way to your resolutions in the Flex Advantage 2.0  for him or the Skechers Burst for her.

Now that you’re all caught up, be sure to stock up on those Black and White essentials. You can find even more options for women here and men here. And thanks to the Air-cooled Memory Foam insole in every pair, you will be on-trend with comfort included. No more standing in front of the mirror deciding what to put on–with a pair of black and white sneakers you can wear whatever you want—even those velvet overalls!

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.
