STYLES FOR HIM

52108

All the guys in our office have been raving about how comfortable the Skechers Burst sneakers are, and yours will love these too. The Burst – Second Wind sneaker is incredibly flexible and lightweight, thanks to the flat knit upper and Burst midsole. Made with an air-cooled memory foam insole, it’s a perfect go-with-everything look (and a great way to start those healthy New Year’s resolutions).

 

64519

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.

Designed with GOga Mat Technology and shock-absorbing GO Pillars, Skechers GOwalk 3 – Lounge is perfect for the active guy who wants a shoe that offers incredible, lightweight comfort (but also goes with everything in his closet).

GREENBERG ACCEPTS FN’S LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

Since 1992, our CEO and chairman Robert Greenberg (or “RG” as we lovingly call him) has transformed the word “Skechers” into a household name, a global powerhouse of brands for millions around the world. After a lifetime of incredible work, Footwear News honored the man this week with the Manolo Blahnik Lifetime Achievement Award, in tribute to everything that he’s achieved in the footwear industry.

Introduced by boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard for the award, Robert expressed his gratitude: “I want to thank Footwear News for their tremendous support through the years. Building this company has been a dream come true, and all of this would not be possible without the support of my family and the wonderful team I get to work with every day. I believe the brand has never looked better and the best is yet to come.”

We are so thrilled and proud of our chief for everything that he’s accomplished. Thank you, Robert, for your incredible vision – and for taking us on this thrilling ride for 23 years and counting. We can’t wait to see where you’ll take our brand next!

BROOKE BURKE-CHARVET’S STYLE BURST

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.

SKECHERS CYBER MONDAY STYLE IDEAS

FINAL Cyber Monday
Millions of Americans braved the crowds to hunt for the hottest deals of the year on Black Friday. If you sat out the shopper insanity this year (or even if you didn’t), Cyber Monday offers the chance to pick up gifts for those on your list—or treat yourself—all from the comfort of your home or office. Of course we’re a little biased and think that skechers.com is a perfect destination for your holiday shopping!  So we polled the office for the styles everyone plans to pick up today.

Jenn
I’d go with the Laramie boot because I wore them then and I wear them now!

Alisa
My sister would love to get the Breathe Easy – Fortune as a gift! She’s a photographer so she’s a huge fan of any Skechers Relaxed Fit styles that are easy to slip on and shoot in all day long.

JD
I’m getting my friend Gina a pair of the new women’s Burst – Adrenaline… She wants to be just like Demi who is wearing them in her new campaign! #SkechersDemiStyle

Brennan
I’m picking up a new pair of the Skechers GOrun Strada. It’s the most comfortable, durable and well-constructed skechers shoes that I have worn.

Lara
What girl doesn’t love a black bootie? I can’t wait to grab the cute Taxi-Cab boot for all of the gals on my shopping list this year!

Haowei
I just love my Bramble so much. Stylish and comfy at the same time. Every guy should have a pair!

Akane
Can’t wait to surprise my kid with pink Swift Kicks – Lil Glammer this holiday. Comfy, easy to put on and I love the fun color and cute stitching!

James
The super comfortable Relaxed Fit Superior – Leroy is my every day sneaker. I already own a pair in brown, so today’s the perfect chance to pick up another in black!

Marcella
I would gift the Mark Nason Burwood boot to my boyfriend who is a musician constantly on the road and pretty much needs the comfort it offers traveling from city to city! Plus the rustic brown color fits his everyday style.

Lauren
Memory Foam sneakers are great for my gym workouts, and I’ll pick up the Flex Appeal – Pretty City because it’s stylish enough to wear with casual outfits and the black/white heathered jersey is such a versatile color.

 

TOP THANKSGIVING TREATS

Thanksgiving Collage

Thanksgiving is just a few days away! Whether you love to spend the day whipping up a feast in your kitchen or like to keep it simple by gobbling at a friend’s place or a restaurant, it’s America’s favorite day to feast. We polled our office mates for their top Thanksgiving dishes – and got everything from delicious classics to innovative updates (and a surprising passion for all things sweet potato!). Read on for our favorite bites and some links to great dishes for your holiday.

Melissa – Dark meat gently nestled against a small mound of mashed potatoes with gravy dripping down the side; on the other side nuzzling up to garlic stuffing, with cranberry sauce along for the ride. I’ve actually gotten all of this onto a fork for one bite!

Akane – Sausage stuffing, with all the crunchy and moist croutons, with loads of gravy poured on top… here’s a great recipe.

Gina – Roasted Brussels Sprouts. I use a few recipes, but here’s a good one.

JamesSkillet Corn with Bacon. Not only is this recipe super easy to make…you can even substitute frozen corn for fresh. But we’re talking about corn cooked in bacon fat here! HELLO. YUM.

JennRoasted butternut squash and sage lasagna. Delicious!

Lauren – Pumpkin pie served chilled with whipped cream on top. I’m not a cook, so I buy the Trader Joe’s version and it’s delicious!

Brennan – KFC and a bottle of Prosecco sounds good.

And three-way sweet potato tie…

JD – I always loved sweet potato casserole because of the toasted marshmallows – welcome to the South, where nothing is good for you and we end the holidays by enrolling in Weight Watchers.

Alisa – Sweet potato casserole – lots of brown sugar and candied pecans make this the perfect dish for Thanksgiving Day AND the morning after! Here’s a recipe similar to my grandma’s.

Marcella – A yam sweet potato dish that my sister makes! She makes it just right to where it isn’t too sweet. I can’t wait to have it this Thanksgiving!!!

What’s your favorite dish? Tell us in the comments!
