MEGHAN TRAINOR DEBUTS NEW CAMPAIGN

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of a new campaign with platinum recording artist Meghan Trainor!  In her second commercial for Skechers, we follow Meghan as she laces up her Skechers D’Lites and busts a few dance moves with her dad. Appropriately set to “Dance Like Yo Daddy” from her sophomore album, Thank You, the cool spot features retro-styled #MTrainSkechers D’Lites footwear. Filmed in Pasadena, California at a coffee shop that was given a makeover to become a fabulous record store, the shoot was filled with energy and a cast of dancers. Check out this video to go behind the scenes with the singer on her all new commercial!

As Meghan proves, Skechers D’Lites make it easy to show off your personality and with the comfortable Air-cooled Memory Foam insole in every pair, you’ll be feeling great even after a full day of dancing your heart out. You can pick up a pair of the styles featured in the new campaign on skechers.com today.

And now here it is!  Check out Meghan’s new Skechers D’Lites commercial below! And be sure to let us know your favorite Meghan Trainor track in the comments!

SKECHERS WINS AWARDS

We’re incredibly excited that the Flex Appeal 2.0 – Insights has been named a winner in SHAPE magazine’s 2017 Sneaker Awards! Read all about it in the April issue of SHAPE on newsstands now! This lightweight and super comfortable sneaker has been a huge hit for everyone who wears it and the monochromatic spinning black seen above as well as the white and black seen below are totally on trend for this season.

When you hear the term “award season” there’s a good chance that entertainment industry trophy ceremonies like the Grammys and Oscars come to mind. Our footwear industry spreads the accolades as well and Skechers has been honored with a few big awards from our peers in the last few months. Fortunately, there were no misread envelopes or viral moments at our ceremonies!

To start, the Skechers KIDS collection has been recognized with a design excellence award in the Children’s category at the 18th annual Plus Awards. The prestigious awards are presented by trade publication Footwear Plus and co-sponsored by the Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFANY). Nominees were selected and voted on by thousands of footwear retailers and consumers nationwide in recognition of the industry’s most compelling product offerings. We’ve done very well at the Plus Awards over the years with this being our ninth overall Plus Award for footwear design excellence and the third win for the Skechers Kids collection.

And across the Atlantic in the United Kingdom, Skechers has also been named Brand of the Year for an amazing third consecutive year at the 2017 Footwear Industry Awards. As if that top honor wasn’t enough, Skechers was additionally commended in the Ladies Footwear and Comfort/Wellness categories. Receiving this recognition is a testament to the strength of the Skechers brand internationally. The annual awards event was held a few weeks ago during the Moda Footwear Show and was supported by retailers and footwear industry organizations in the United Kingdom and the trade publication Footwear Today.

BOBS FOR DOGS HELPS SAVE THEM ALL

We’re so excited to share the latest chapter of our BOBS journey with you!

One of the most gratifying things about working at Skechers, is how we’ve been able to take our brand to new places… and one of our proudest is how we’ve partnered with you to make a difference in the world. Our BOBS for Dogs movement has been among our most embraced campaigns to date, with scores of customers snapping up our styles to help save the millions of animals euthanized in U.S. shelters every year.

We’ve committed at least $3 million to Best Friends Animal Society, and are presenting sponsor of fundraising events like Best Friends’ annual Strut Your Mutt celebration – where we share our BOBS for Dogs styles, giveaways and even field games for pooches and their owners! Beloved by dog lovers in 14 cities across the country, Strut Your Mutt has become a national phenomenon with a massive following. Celebrity pooch Tuna even stopped by to vamp in our shoes!

We’ve also taken the BOBS for Dogs movement to more than 400 of our stores, where our “Give Love” Valentine’s Day campaign supported Best Friends’ pet adoptions and inspired dog fans to find their perfect BOBS for Dogs shoes, register with Best Friends, donate thousands to shelter animals and adopt “The One” for a lifetime of love.

People really love the unique, animated styles of our BOBS for Dogs collection, and how they’re adorably fun but also totally serious about making a difference in animals’ lives. Our shoes have ranged from cute puppy and kitty prints (Pup Smarts / Kitty Smarts) to sweet pit bulls (Gentle Giants) and colorful pooch portraits (Paw-fection). You can see the entire BOBS collection here. (Sundae the Golden loves the red!)

Thanks for taking part in BOBS for Dogs… and join us for many more fundraising celebrations at our stores and Strut Your Mutt events!

 

SKECHERS PERFORMANCE LOS ANGELES MARATHON WRAP UP

Sixty runners from 35 countries representing all levels of athletes from around the globe came out to Los Angeles as part of the #GORUNLA campaign leading up the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday. It all started at the two-day pre-race expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center where runners, fans and supporters could find an exclusive collection of limited edition footwear, apparel and accessories including the super cool black and white Los Angeles Skechers GOrun Forza 2 seen above.  More than 33,000 stopped by the expo and passed through the massive Skechers Performance booth and had the chance to meet 2016 winner Weldon Kirui and Skechers Performance runner Kara Goucher.

And then on race day over 23,000 runners from all 50 states and 63 countries ran the 26.2 miles from Dodger Stadium to the Santa Monica pier. It was an extremely fun and exciting day for all involved! Several elite athletes wearing Skechers Performance footwear had great finishes including Jane Kibii from Kenya (seen below) who came in second at 2:36:14 and Heather Lieberg from the United States at 2:43:43 for the women as well as Weldon Kirui of Kenya who crossed the finish line fourth among the men at 2:13:24.

We’re also incredibly proud of all the first-time runners this year! Check out Sophie Geoffrion and Chloé Rochette from Quebec, Canada moments after they crossed the finish line—a first marathon completion for both who supported each other through training and every mile of the race. It’s always a thrill to see that joy after crossing the finish line!

After all the hard work it was time to party and relax…and we welcomed our #GORUNLA vip runners, the more then 50 runners from the Skechers team in Manhattan Beach, and all the event supporters at the Starlight Room VIP lounge near the finish line. At this point it was time to catch our breath…the 2018 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon is now less than a year away!  Early bird registration is available through Friday, March 25…learn more at lamarathon.com!

And for some history of the brand and our ongoing title sponsorship of the Los Angeles Marathon, check out this feature interview with Skechers president Micheal Greenberg that aired during KTLA’s coverage of the race!

 

 

 

 

JUMP INTO SPRING WITH SKECHERS KIDS

As much of the country continues to thaw out from the late season blizzard earlier this week, it could be hard to comprehend that the spring season is only a few days away.  Of course kids are the most eager to get outside no matter what and despite the chill in the air, spring arriving on March 20 will signal that warmer weather will help the north and east catch up to the more moderate temperatures already spreading across the south and west.

When boys and girls start bouncing back to the playground, it’s important that they’re feeling amazingly comfortable as they jump, climb, slide and play. And a pair of lightweight sneakers that features a soft Skechers Gel-Infused Memory Foam insole is perfect for the season. For girls, the delightfully colorful and bright Skech Appeal – Rainbow Runner is a go-everywhere pair that’s cool, sporty and totally fun. And for boys, the athletic slip-on Skech-Train offers an easy-to-wear closure for little ones on the move. Both include our signature plush Skechers Memory Foam that kids love.

And these two are just a few super comfy options for kids that feature squishy, squashy and super comfy Skechers Memory Foam!  From sporty styles to light up shoes to everything in between there’s a Skechers Kids style for every boy and girl so check out the full collection on skechers.com to find a perfect pair.  And because we want to make sure you’re excited for spring—even if the cold hasn’t moved away yet…we’re giving away several pairs of Skechers on Monday to ring in the new season!  Check our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages at NOON PST to learn how to enter!
