Longer days. Warmer weather. And most importantly…springtime sunshine! This is the season to be outside and get your necessary dosage of vitamin D. The darkness of winter has ended, so enough with the excuses! Each and every one of us is busy, so it’s not about finding the time. It’s about making the time. And it’s easier than you think. Go for a walk when you just need to take a break from the job. Not only is a great way to clear your head, but that time outside will energize you for the rest of your day. Eat your lunch outside. Too many of us eat a meal at our desk or the cafeteria but it’s important to get away if only for a short time. The change of environment helps relieve stress and sun will help with your mood. Join or coach a sports team. Transition some of your leisure activities to be outdoor-focused…it’s better than sitting at home spending even more time in front of a computer. Or if you have little ones, volunteer to coach or help out rather than dropping off the kid and running an errand. It’s the perfect two birds with one stone scenario. Just get outside, have fun, and feel better each day. It really is that important. Check out Dr. Oz for four benefits of vitamin D and don’t forget the sunscreen if you’ll be out more than 20 minutes!
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!

When it comes to baseball, “Opening Day” is such a big event that it now stretches across two entire days! After a few match ups yesterday, the season truly and fully kicks off today. These are the spring days filled with hope for players and fans in every major league city. With 162 games yet to go, every team still has an equal statistical chance to play into October. It’s also the perfect day to launch a campaign starring the newest member of the Skechers Relaxed Fit team—legendary Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith!
Ozzie’s debut Skechers commercial premiered Sunday. In the spot, the former player compares his trademark double play skills with the style and comfort found in the Relaxed Fit footwear collection. We caught up with Ozzie to ask him his thoughts on Skechers:
“I’m excited to be working with Skechers on this campaign because they make some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I’ve been a fan of the brand for years, and I love how Skechers Memory Foam feels so relaxing on my feet.”
Check out the new commercial below and visit skechers.com for the latest styles in the comfortable Relaxed Fit footwear collection for men!
Get ready for spring… it’s time to brighten up your wardrobe with sandals! We asked our women’s merchandiser for the hot new trends, and she was thrilled to share the best looks of the season. Our Skechers ’16 sandal collection covers the globe’s hottest trends, and offers a nice all-in-one assortment for every style and activity. Whether your thing is wedges, flip-flops or all comfort, all the time, check out the latest here.
Wedges are looking better than ever. With stylish materials like cork, lace and rope detailing, we can’t wait for them to arrive! Here are some great new options from our fashion lines.
This beautiful wedge will have people asking, “Where did you get those sandals?” With lace detailing and memory foam, you won’t want to take them off. Take your pick of the bunch. Shown in Natural, also available in Black and Brown.
A dressed-up sandal with rhinestone embellishments and yoga foam that hugs and comforts your feet with every step you take. Shown in Black Silver, also available in Navy, Taupe and White.
Casual sandals have taken on a new meaning this year. Skechers has designs for everyone from the beach girl to the fashion diva!
This yoga-inspired style was a huge hit last year. Must-have shades like Black (shown), Navy and Raspberry are perfect for coordinating with any outfit and can take you from the beach and pool to town.
MEDITATION – REFLECTION
For 2016, we’re adding to this yoga-inspired trend with multi-hued designs, including my personal favorite in blue tie dye jersey (shown above, at select Skechers retail stores).
These days, there’s no reason why fashion needs to be compromised for the sake of comfort. We’ve given the basic comfort sandal a stylish, fun update, perfect for cooling your heels all day long.
This little lovely has so many reasons to buy it. It’s got roomy Relaxed Fit and Skechers Memory Foam design for ultimate comfort, and it’s an adjustable thong, which is a nice feature for hot summer days. Shown in Dark Natural, also available in Black and Navy.
This reggae has an ethnic printed T-strap and is in the richest colors. I love the Chocolate Brown, but if you like color, take a look at the Navy, Black, Taupe and Coral (shown above). All of these are gorgeous!

Spring finally arrived yesterday and we’re all hoping that means warmer days filled with sunshine are here to stay. After a winter cooped up inside, this is the time of year that encouraging outside play is an essential must-do for your kids. And setting the tone on this first Monday of the season will help build better play habits that carry through summer and beyond. Playing outside encourages creativity, drives social development and promotes physically active fun for growing boys and girls. Whether it’s tag with the neighborhood kids, organized sports, imagining a land of outdoor make-believe, or exploring nature with the family—the great outdoors opens up their worlds in ways not possible sitting in front of a TV, iPad or video game console. Wasn’t it so much easier before all those distractions? So be prepared as they might grumble at first, but make it your must-do to guide them, help them, convince them, even push a little if you have to…because going outside really is that important.
What was your favorite outdoor play activity growing up? Let us know in the comments!
Spring has arrived at Skechers! It’s time for bright colors, stand out designs and fresh new textures, which is exactly what Skechers delivers in our kids’ collections. We asked our style-savvy merchandisers to let us know the latest for little ones… check them out!

Even better, the on/off switch on the side can deactivate the lights when needed. With the metallic stripe designs on the side panels and a vibrant translucent midsole panel, he will be photogenic anywhere he goes.
COOL FOR SCHOOL
Fashion is the ultimate form of self-expression, and the Neutron sneaker serves as the perfect canvas for this trend. It can easily take boys from the classroom to the playground with hoodies and jeans. The ombre color effect mesh upper and unique 3D-printed overlays on front and sides is sure to cause a great reaction, thanks to its cool, sporty style.
A BOLT OF BLUE
The future is now… and a technical fabric along with Skechers Gel-Infused Memory Foam plays well to this trend in the Fast Volt athletic sport sneaker. Complete with a dual-color mesh fabric upper and zig-zag strap, the Fast Volt trainer is designed for speed! It’s sure to add some high-intensity sport style to his look.
