MUST-DO MONDAY: HIT THE STAIRS

Many of us are ready to hit the ground running with a boatload of healthy resolutions (plenty which involve getting in shape)… but have no details on how to make it happen. Enter one of the simplest strategies ever: your stairs! Conveniently located in homes, apartments and offices everywhere, they’re a free, easy way to give your heart a boost and tighten all kinds of muscles in your core, glutes and more (including a few you never knew you had). Start climbing: according to one study, you can boost your VO2 max (the total oxygen you consume during exercise) by 17% just by walking up to 200 steps twice a day, five days a week for eight weeks. Or if that’s too daunting, just take the stairs instead of the elevator daily: a simple choice that can give your health a real boost.

RESOLUTIONS FOR THE NEW YEAR

2016.3

It’s that time of year when we reassess how things have been going and what we want to do differently in the twelve months ahead.  We polled the office to hear 2016 resolutions from the Skechers team. Fitness is always an obvious one, so here’s everything else that we want to do in the new year. We hope you have an amazing and happy new year and please let us know what’s on your 2016 list in the comments!

David
To enjoy family, friends and life more – life is way too short to stress over work, finances and material things – they should not be your priority. Enjoy what you have, where you are and who you are. Live life to the fullest because it only happens once!🙂

Logan
I have two key resolutions this year: 1. To spend more time with loved ones without the iPhone glued to my hand.  2. To spread positivity!

Carolyn
My New Year resolution is to let go of things I can’t control and focus on things I can control, like myself and my actions. You can’t control how other people treat you or others but you can take it as a lesson to never become one of them and take action to be a better human being and help others when you have a chance. More smiles in 2016!

Andrea
Focus on the present moment and remind myself that it doesn’t always have to be about the big picture. 

Allie
We just got a new TV over the holidays – so ours is to work out less, gain weight and binge watch the year away!

Lynette
My New Year’s resolution is to enjoy life in the present moment and stop worrying about the future. I want to let go of stress and anxiety so I can enjoy 2016 with a clear mind and appreciate each day.

Jonah
I resolve to drink better wine. Life is too short for the cheap stuff.

Ashley
To better balance work and personal life. To write more and read more. To volunteer more. To find an extra two hours in each day to achieve this.

DANIELLE BRADBERY JOINS BOBS FOR HOLIDAY GIVING

2015 has been another incredible year for BOBS – with 68,000 pairs of new shoes donated this year at events in the United States and Canada, along with more than two million pairs around the world! We’ve given nearly 13 million pairs to kids worldwide since the BOBS charity program started in 2011, which brings us so much joy. And this holiday season was no different, with two big events in Texas and California that celebrated the season with nearly 5000 pairs of new shoes for kids in need.

SKECHERS kicked off the holidays in star-studded style: partnering with The Voice winner Danielle Bradbery, who helped us hand out new shoes to kids from the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston! From there, we traveled to Ontario, California to spread some holiday cheer… with a little help from Rick Lozano of FOX 11 News, we partnered with his Christmas Cheer All Year organization to donate more than 3000 pairs of shoes to local kids.

We are so thrilled to celebrate the spirit of giving, both through the holidays and beyond. Inspired and want to take part? Check out our latest BOBS styles here – every pair purchased means more shoes for kids in need.

ROBERT GREENBERG NAMED TOP FOOTWEAR COMPANY CEO

Robert Greenberg 2014

Merely a few short weeks after being honored by Footwear News with their Lifetime Achievement Award, Skechers CEO Robert Greenberg has been recognized once again. The website ExecRank has listed Greenberg as number 17 on its annual listing of top CEOs in the United States. Especially notable is that Greenberg was the only footwear company CEO to make the top 20 in any of the three ranked categories—Small-Cap, Mid-Cap (where Skechers was ranked) and Mega/Large-Cap.

In speaking with Footwear News about these latest accolades, Robert Greenberg stated, “[I feel] wonderful, especially considering the other successful footwear companies in our enormously challenging industry, and I was chosen. It’s because of the popularity and phenomenal growth of our brand and company over the last three years.”

As Skechers is more popular than ever in the United States and around the globe and the company is consistently recognized as a leader in the footwear industry, everyone at Skechers is proud that our chief is getting the attention he deserves as well. He will humbly tell you that success comes from the many talents of our entire team, but Skechers wouldn’t be Skechers if it wasn’t for the vision and guidance of Robert Greenberg.

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.
