First row: Equalizer 2.0 – True Balance and Burst TR for him. Second row: Skech-Air Infinity and Flex Appeal 2.0 – High Energy for her.

The new Skechers Spot spot just landed, and it’s seriously worth checking out. And I’m not just saying that because I’m on Team Skechers.

For every trainer, kickboxer, yogi or all-around rock star at the gym, this spot’s an awesome anthem. And if you’re not, trust us – you’ll want to be all of those things once you watch this.

Take a look:

Stop to watch it again (because you will) and check out all the gorgeous styles in the spring Skechers Sport collection: lightweight and breathable, flexible by design, packed with amazing memory foam comfort and ready to take a beating (I mean, the guy’s flipping tires in his Skechers. TIRES.) Everything from Skechers Burst to Skech-Air, Skech-Flex and Flex Appeal is getting star billing in this, and we’re loving every moment.

Let us know your favorite style in our new spot!

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).

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!

ROCK 10 YEARS OF D‘LITES WITH THE DIAMOND COLLECTION

We’re starting 2017 in style by giving one of Skechers’ biggest trends of the past decade a sparkling new update: the D’Lites Diamond Anniversary Collection, starring four bold new styles (Be Dazzling, Style RevampShiny and New and Diamonds Are Forever)!

For 10 years, Skechers D’Lites have been a hot trend for our brand – launching in the States and becoming a fashion movement that spread across Asia, where top K-Pop groups Sistar and EXO have backed the collection. The heritage sneaker has been worn by global pop stars, fashion influencers and millions of fans worldwide. So we couldn’t resist but salute this amazing style and give it the glam it deserves.

The Skechers D’Lites Diamond Anniversary Collection rocks lots of rocks, but also a lot of comfort: it’s been modernized with awesome lightweight features and cushioned Skechers Air-Cooled Memory Foam. Our four new styles in this collection are all bejeweled in black and white, but each one is distinctly embellished with its own diamond rivets and bold metallics.

To celebrate this new trend, some of the hottest influencers around have been lacing up in their Diamond D’Lites and rocking this hot new look – everyone from Miss Minus Sized to Mermaid Waves! We love showing our Diamond D’Lites off with a classy outfit, or dressing them down with a pair of jeans.

Have an old pair of D’Lites that you love? How would you style your own Diamond Anniversary pair? Tell us in the comments!

BLOG TAKEOVER: LORNA WEIGHTMAN STYLES SKECHERS

I work on my feet all day long, from shoots to filming TV and running around Dublin and most of Ireland to do my job. With this in mind I have to look after my feet, and I have been a long standing fan of Skechers. Aside from the support each pair gives, I feel I never have to compromise on style with either sneakers or shoes, and some of my most loved blog posts have been wearing some form of Skechers footwear! My followers on instagram love my shoe posts and in particular how I style my Skechers in each of my pictures. Me and my Skechers have been everywhere together in 2016!

Most recently, I traveled to Africa on a charity trip where I was out filming on mountains, remote villages and even Kilimanjaro! For those few important days I wore Skechers lightweight sneakers to keep my feet cool and comfortable. I cannot tell you how much I love Skechers Memory Foam! Every time I put on my trainers, my feet soak up the sponginess that encases them! I swear my feet have never been so happy! I love black trainers as I wear them with skirts and tights as much as I do with my favourite skinny jeans. My favourite pair right now have a snake skin print on the soles which gives a nod to the trend of the season!

I wear these to work but also to the gym! I love strength and conditioning training and when I am lifting weights I need to have my feet level on the ground. I find Skechers gives me the centre of gravity I need to support my feet and legs when I train. You have to protect your body when working out, so I started wearing  Skechers GOrun or Skechers GOtrail depending on the terrain for this great support they give me. Runs have never felt this great!

I’ve recently converted my Mum to wearing Skechers too for when she walks, and I am glad to report that she’s a fan too. We even have some of the same pairs! For anyone who wants to have a balance of supportive footwear for walking, training or just your regular day, there’s a Skechers shoe for you.

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!
