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!

BLOG TAKEOVER:  BRITT ON HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE HABITS

Britt 5

Hi, it’s Britt here from FitBrittNutrition! I’m a Holistic Nutritionist-to-be, and am passionate about ALL things health and fitness related.  After Skechers sent me a pair of their new Flex Appeal shoes to try out, I wanted to share my favorite tips with you that help me stay motivated to work out and all around live a healthier life. We can all get a little lazy with winter’s colder months, so these tips will help you jump right back into your fit-gear.

First, schedule your workouts for the week

That’s right, just like you would schedule a doctor appointment or a lunch meeting, SCHEDULE in those workouts on your calendar for the week! So many of my clients complain that they can’t find the motivation to work out during the week because they get home from work feeling tired, but if you schedule in 3-4 workouts throughout your work week ahead of time, you are more likely to stick to them. I also recommend working out at whatever time you know you will commit to, whether you’re a morning person and that’s before work, on your lunch break, or right after work, perhaps before you go home and get stuck to your couch. Find what time works for you!

Be prepared

Always have a bag of workout necessities stashed in your car. A few workout musts to include in your bag: A pair of your favorite Skechers, shorts/leggings, a workout bra (ladies), tank top, sweat towel, water bottle, a pre-workout snack like a bar (choose one that has clean ingredients that you recognize), and some headphones to play uplifting tunes. Also, plan out your meals on a weekly basis. I use Sundays as my meal planning and prepping day. Doing this ensures I have healthy meals and snacks on hand to eat throughout the week.

Keep your weekends active

To keep your healthy habits consistent, plan one challenging workout to do every weekend. Whether it’s a new workout class you’ve been wanting to try, something a little unconventional like paddle-boarding, or going on a new hike. Choose a workout you usually don’t have time to do during your work week. I always plan out my weekend activity (which is usually an extra-long hike in a new area) during the beginning of a new week to give me something to look forward to and help me stick to it.

Revamp date nights with friends

Friends are definitely good for your health, there are studies out there that prove it! However, greasy food and alcoholic beverages (if you are of legal-age) are not so good for your health. So the next time you make “Happy Hour” plans with your friend to catch up, opt for trying a new activity or healthy restaurant together instead, or even both!

Update your workout shoes

Lastly, and most importantly (at least my feet would think so), update your workout shoes with a new style for 2016. Nothing motivates me like a new pair of shoes I can’t wait to wear to the gym or out hiking. It’s important to invest in a comfortable pair of shoes that are going to support you in whatever your workout (or workouts) of choice may be. You can see the Flex Appeal-Whirl Wind training shoe that Skechers sent me in the pictures. First, can we take a moment to acknowledge how cute they are?! And maybe even more importantly, how comfy and supportive they are…I’ve been rocking these shoes everywhere! Invest in a pair of shoes you feel good about, and that feel good on your feet.

Once you incorporate ALL of these tips, you’ll realize what a healthier week and weekend you’ve created for yourself without too much effort. Soon, these little changes will become habits that will contribute to living a healthy lifestyle that is easy to maintain. Not to mention, you’ll start to realize how amazing your body feels, inside and out, and nothing is more rewarding than that!

SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

Group Edit Header

With the annual holiday that celebrates those in love or yearning for love only a few days away, we thought it would be a great opportunity to share how a few of our popular Skechers women’s styles easily pair with classic ideas for gifting your Valentine.

Candy message hearts have been a yearly Valentine’s Day treat for decades.  Each one printed with words that read “kiss me”, “true love”, and the always classic “be mine” offer a cute way to share your feelings that you might otherwise not be able to say out loud.  The Relaxed Fit Empire—Heart to Heart style in pink matches up perfectly with the fun and flirty little pastel sweets.

They say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and Valentine’s Day is as good a time as any other to express the desire to take that relationship to the next level. Of course when it comes to diamonds, it’s not the size of the rock that matters, but the shine of the bling. The new Burst—First Glimpse in silver and white offers bling in spades with a crisp and cool design that’s befitting any potential spouse. And no matter what the cut of the ice may be, these shoes are sure to complement perfectly. The real question is…are you ready to commit?  Diamonds, after all, are forever.

While flowers may certainly be a reliable standby expression of thoughtful love, going with something other than the standard red roses says there was actually some legitimate thought put into it. When thinking outside the box, possibilities are endless and personality is sure to come through to your Valentine. The slip-on Glider—Posies with an aqua and flower patterned upper design is also high on personality by expressing that halfway through February, you’re already thinking about spring.

From drug stores to grocery stores to department stores, every retailer is hawking heart-shaped boxes of chocolates this time of year—it’s unavoidable!  Cut through the clutter and this perennial gift can still be a winner with a few tips.  Go with a small box—no one wants 40 chocolates calling them to eat more—and go with something high-end because an exquisite exotic and sensual piece of dark chocolate is worth an extra ten minutes on a treadmill. The comfortable Relaxed Fit Career—First Impression follows these same rules as it offers a simple and polished profile but is constructed with luxurious distressed leather.

How will you express yourself to your special someone this Valentine’s Day?  Let us know in the comments!

All the guys in our office have been raving about how comfortable the Skechers Burst sneakers are, and yours will love these too.

The Relaxed Fit – Segment – Verzani casual is a great, rugged choice for braving any cool weather: from rain to snow to winter slush. Even though it’s warmer here in SoCal, we’re still looking for any chance to wear this timeless look whenever the temperature drops.

From racing to TV sets, to hitting the gym and chasing after her kids, Brooke Burke-Charvet’s always on the run, day and night… so we knew she was a perfect fit for our new Skechers Burst shoe collection!

Skechers took her on an all-day tour around LA – a morning at the gym, local restaurant for lunch, and finally the airport tarmac to grab some Skechers Burst shots on a jet during sunset’s magic hour. The shoot was a huge success – we can’t wait to share it with you this season, along with the rest of Brooke’s Skechers Burst campaign!

Go behind the scenes and check out Brooke’s busy day around LA, along with her new Skechers Burst style. We really love the unique knit mesh, comfy air-cooled memory foam insoles and lightweight feel of these styles, and can’t wait to get your take on the new collection.
