BEST WOMEN’S FALL BOOTS

We’re back with another look at boot styles… this time, for her!

For this season’s hottest looks, our team has been getting inspiration from the trends gracing the runways and fashion magazines around the world. Booties are hotter than ever, and we’re loving this season’s hottest designs. There are so many rich materials and warm colors to choose from, not to mention the addition of Skechers Memory Foam, which makes any shoe feel so much better. Check out what we have in store for the season!



3AMARILLO – GUNS BLAZIN’

Annie, get your gun (and get these booties, too)! This ruched upper suede bootie is the go-to style when you want to go from dress up to jeans and a fun sweater. Its rich chocolate suede will make you swoon, and the fact that it also comes in black will make you want to buy both colors!

 


5LOVELY

This lovely bootie is exactly that. The warm brown color and Skechers Memory Foam comfort just may have you wearing these all day and night. Who says fashion needs to be painful? Also available in rich chocolate.

 


1-1WINCHESTER – MYSTERIOUS

There is nothing mysterious about this mid-calf boot.  A great look, whether it’s paired with boyfriend jeans or a pencil skirt. A nice sleek leather, this cutie is the perfect black boot for fall.

 

 

4AGENDA

No hidden agenda here, folks. Just a comfortable, rich olive suede bootie with a leather buckle strap across the vamp for added style. We’re loving the lug sole for a little edge. If olive isn’t your thing, it’s available in black too. (At Skechers retail stores and coming soon to skechers.com.)

 


2-2CACTUS MARCHER

Sign me up for these quilted mid-calf lace-ups! Can’t you just picture them peeking out of your favorite long skirt, saying “Look at me!” Available in black only, this marcher is turning heads everywhere.🙂 (At Skechers retail stores and coming soon to skechers.com.)

BEST MEN’S FALL BOOTS

Guys, it’s time to re-boot your shoe game as we settle into fall! We asked one of our lead men’s merchandisers for the latest Skechers boots that offer great fit, style and function – and he had five stellar looks that are perfect for the cooler weather like we saw in NYC.

GREAT FALL TRADITIONS

Featured styles: the Amarillo – Guns Blazin and Cactus – Marcher boots.

We love the crisp air and colors of fall – so much so, we’ve been exploring fun fall finds on Pinterest! To get into the spirit of the cooler months, we also asked our fellow international Skechers teams about their countries’ favorite fall traditions. Read on to hear how people abroad are celebrating the season!

Fall in Canada: Good Food, Family and Fun

Out of all four of our seasons, Fall always seems to be much anticipated and much enjoyed by Canadians. We love driving on the country roads admiring the trees adorned with red, yellow and orange leaves. Many of us take advantage of the refreshing weather and take the family out for an afternoon of picking apples and getting lost in a corn maze. We fully indulge at Thanksgiving (which is in October for us)… bringing home-cooked meals to the table and encouraging fun family time in the home. Toasting pumpkin seeds, baking fresh pies and watching Sunday football are just some of the memories Canadians love to make in the Fall.

Germany’s Goldener Oktober

Here in Germany, we love to take a walk especially when the weather is nice and the sun is shining. :) Every tree is losing leaves and they become brown. But when the sun is shining, they look like they were golden and you go through a gigantic golden field of leaves. This is why we also call this time “Goldener Oktober” that means “Golden October.” For a lot of people, this is the most favorite season here in Germany!

Spain Gears Up for the Holidays

In Spain, we don’t have a national celebration during fall (over the years, Halloween has become more famous in our country, but it’s not a national activity). In some places, it’s very typical to do things like eat chestnuts. Much of our traditions during the cooler months focus on the coming Christmas and The Three Wise Men celebration – a time when the families get together, have nice lunches and dinners and exchange presents.

The UK: Guys Fawkes/ Bonfire Night

Remember, remember the fifth of November… Bonfire Night is also known as Fireworks’ Night or Guy Fawkes Night. It’s a British tradition dating back to the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, when Catholic conspirator Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament. Many people get together to light bonfires and set off fireworks. In some towns and cities, it is popular for people attend a bonfire and professional firework display in a park. Due to its proximity to Halloween, many people organize a combined party for Guy Fawkes Night and Halloween. These parties often include elements from both festivals, such as a bonfire and dressing up in spooky outfits. Popular foods include toffee apples, bonfire toffee and potatoes baked in the ashes of the fire.

BOBS: SUMMER OF GIVING

As we reach our latest BOBS donation milestone (approximately 14 million pairs!) we’re looking back on all the incredible memories we’ve made with kids through our events… and this summer was one of our best.

GET ON TREND WITH D’LITES

Can you believe one of the hottest current trends in women’s footwear is a throwback look to the late 90’s that’s now in the midst of its second revival?  Known as D’Lites, these signature Skechers profiles originated with one of our early blockbuster sport styles–the Energy. For anyone in high school two decades ago, the Energy was everywhere.  It could pair with almost any sport casual look. And after a certain mega pop star started wearing them in Skechers advertising, their popularity shot through the stratosphere.

Almost ten years ago the style was updated to be lighter, a bit more sleek–and D’Lites were born.  More recently, fashion cues from the late 90’s started coming back in vogue everywhere, opening the door for yet another revival. It hit first in Asia where last year D’Lites were suddenly seen everywhere once again. And now they’re back on top state-side too.  We profiled D’Lites as perfect normcore styles last spring, but the trend has since extended well beyond that niche look. The chunky heel gives you a little extra height and now with a soft Air-Cooled Memory Foam insole they’re more comfortable than ever. Whether you’re hanging out, chilling out, or going out, the distinct D’Lites profile will perfectly complement your easy going personality. We all know the irony and struggle of working the effortless casual look is that sometimes we have to put a lot of work into it! With D’Lites it’s just easy.

Our friends around the globe love sending us shots of their D’Lites out in the world. Check these out for some more ideas on how easy it can be to style your next pair of D’Lites.

Skechers loves Brooke Burke-Charvet and she gushes over the comfort found in D’Lites in her newest commercial. Check it out below and let us know in the comments how you would style your perfect pair of D’Lites!  And if you don’t have a pair, head to the store now!

 

BEST COLLEGE MEMORIES

Now that colleges are swarming with new and returning students for fall, our team has been reflecting on our own years on campus. While we all came from a wide range of local colleges, liberal arts schools and universities across the country, we all agree that those years were an amazing time that made some lifelong friends, great memories and more than a few crazy stories! Read on to hear a few of our favorite college moments… and share some of your own with us!

6“I went to Miami University in Oxford. On move-in day, I took all the cash that I made over the summer and ‘hid’ it somewhere in my new apt so no one would steal it while we were in and out. I was planning on opening an account at the local bank. Never found that money again until move OUT day because I’d outsmarted myself and stashed it between my mattress and box spring and totally forgot. Lots of ramen that year!” – Sadie

 

“Dr. Charles Harper Webb was my favorite professor of all those I had at CSULB. I loved (and still read) an anthology he edited called Stand Up Poetry: An Expanded Anthology. I highly recommend for a deep, but quick read!” – Haley

“I worked on the school paper at my California university. My choices were to write about the squirrels taking over the campus, or music and entertainment. Clearly, music won out and so began many years in the music journalism world before I came to Skechers.” – Ashley

“At the start of every school year at Boston University, we celebrated a holiday called ‘Allston Christmas.’ Named for the Boston community where most at BU lived off-campus, this was when apartment leases ended at the close of August and students rushing to move would abandon tons and tons of furniture on the sidewalk. From refrigerators to couches to televisions you could score some amazing stuff from all the rich kids graduating on to post-college life. But sometimes the joy of Allston Christmas would turn dark—like when a few days later I discovered the bed bugs in that sweet mattress I claimed… and then discovered they migrated to my brand new living room furniture as well.” – Frankie

5“I had a friend who was older than me at Duke Law School and I used to attend all of the social activities and parties with her. At their graduation party, three of the law professors came up to me and congratulated me on graduating and wished me luck in my new career in law… Funny, because I wasn’t in law school, they only thought I was because I attended all of their parties… Oh, and they never congratulated my friend – Oops! :)” –Topher

“Aside from the all-you-can-eat plain cheese quesadillas at UC Santa Cruz, I think living in an apartment and using a broom to bang on the ceiling to silence the upstairs neighbors was the most vivid thing about living ‘college town life’.”

– Jude

“Four-day school weeks at my college in California.  Need I say more?” – Shaya

“I went to UCSB, so there was a lot of work hard, play hard.  Some of my favorite memories are snapshots of college life: the basketball crowds who’d toss quesadillas onto the court in protest, dining commons food fights, dueling dorms’ 3am fire alarm evacuations, the campus crusaders who’d try to convert us to everything, from religion to new credit card debt. Gross, gross portions of pizza and crazy bread. Near-misses on people’s beater bikes as they’d cruise to class. Auditoriums of guys with their baseball caps flipped back during no-cheat exams. Making movies on shoestring budgets (one with Jack Johnson when he was a student filmmaker who ‘played a little music’). Hunger strikes, passionate politics and fierce convictions to change the world.” – Amy

 On him: the Sycamore casual in Gray. On her: the Flex Appeal 2.0 – High Energy sneaker in White/Black.
