TAKE OFF IN COMFORT WITH KELLY BROOK

Hey, Kelly. You look awfully comfortable in first class comfort.

Can Skechers Wide Fit shoes upgrade you into first class, pronto? OK, perhaps it’s a little aspirational – but totally worth a try. It worked for Kelly Brook in her latest spot, where she was swiftly saved from a hyperactive kid (no way that’s a lap baby!) and an ominous set of knitting needles.

bep_7018Inspired by our hugely successful men’s spot with Howie Long, Skechers decided to go mile high for the gals this round as a fun way to showcase our insanely comfortable Wide Fit collection (it’s part of Skechers’ new signature fit system – check out our three fits for gals below). Take it from us – these styles are really, really amazing. You’ve got the roomy fit, the memory foam cushioning, everything – but also the cute styling. Plus they’re easy to slip on and off, so are totally airline-friendly for all of those lovely TSA checkpoints. But we digress. They’re worth grabbing a pair, or three.

Kelly is about as fun as she is gorgeous, by the way. On her downtime, we thought we’d ask her what her favorite pair of Skechers are, and why she’s such a huge fan. Watch her dish here:

Take a look at the sweet style Kelly’s wearing in her Wide Fit commercial (it’s Flex Appeal 2.0 – New Image) and tell us: Would you rather strut around in first class comfort or subject your heels to coach all day long? You be the judge.

Skechers’ new Signature Fit System includes styles in three different widths for women: Classic Fit (B width), Relaxed Fit from Skechers (B/C width) and Skechers Wide Fit (D width).

TWO TOP TRENDS FOR 2017

It’s never too early to prepare your closet for the hot styles set to dominate in the months ahead. To give you a little help, here’s two top points from our footwear trend forecast for 2017. Follow these points and you’ll be ahead of the fashion curve for the next season. Props to style blogger Lena for the top image—follow itslenatime on Instagram for more!

TREND ONE:
Comfortable & Stylish Street Sneaks

2017 is NOT the year to trade in comfort for looks in the big world of sneaks. You can have it all with styles that deliver on fashion and function. Fortunately, Skechers offers to achieve this look that are on point—here’s a few to consider!

054

The women’s Kort Klassix with a gold trim is a classic choice for going the stylishly comfy route. These sneaks are so trendy that you could dress them up with a stylish maxi for an instantly chic ensemble! Did I mention they are extremely comfortable…?   BONUS PROTIP:  This style also looks GREAT with denim!

012

How about a slip-on to complete your wardrobe this season? Look no further than the OG Double Up-Sleek Street. The blush color will add a simple neutral tone to your outfit. This color will always be trendy, and so will this style. Each of these timeless profiles featured a Skechers Air-Cooled Memory Foam insole to ensure that you can walk for days and still feel amazing.  BONUS PROTIP: Try to stay away from bright colors when wearing a pair like this. Neutral colors such as blush complement other neutrals!

TREND TWO:
Knitted Slip-on Sneaks

For 2017, we’re loving simplicity when it comes to fashion. Looking stylish shouldn’t be so hard, right? Life gets super easy with slip-on shoes and the casual knitted look is coming in hot this year so kick back and check out your options!

079

It’s just the beginning for the knit-sneaks trend and Skechers has countless styles in this category. The Flex Appeal 2.0—Insights in black and white hits this trend perfectly. Easy to coordinate with any outfit, these shoes are multi-purpose and ready for whatever unfolds.  And with the cozy sock-like slip-on design you’ll for sure want this option in your 2017 closet.  BONUS PROTIP: If you’re aiming for the athleisure look, think beyond yoga pants—ripped jeans pair great with these shoes!

030

Tired of shoe laces constantly getting untied or having to tie them at all (I know I am)? Luckily, the 2017 fashion forecast is stocked with slip-on shoes waiting just for you. The women’s Relaxed Fit: Empire – Game On multi-colored sneaker blends in comfort, a flare to your outfit AND the knitted upper trend all in one. Don’t miss out on these!  BONUS PROTIP: When you rocking the colorful sneaks, make sure your outfit is a single solid color—it’ll make the shoes pop even more than they would otherwise!

HEAD TO SET WITH BROOKE BURKE-CHARVET

We absolutely adore Brooke Burke-Charvet. She’s been a beloved member of the Skechers family for years, and she handles everything with such grace and style – whether it’s her role as our ambassador, a contestant on The Celebrity Apprentice, or as a busy mom of four (plus she has an amazing stash of incredible tips we love).

Brooke’s numerous Skechers product shoots have taken us all over the city, and her new Skech-Knit commercial was our most modern yet: shot in an ultra-swanky downtown LA space to highlight the futuristic feel and comfort of the new collection. Brooke, like always, was a delight to shoot – and ready to share her own personal take on what makes her a Skechers solemate and how she balances everything in her life:

Brooke is a huge believer in taking it easy at home in her Skechers – and looking at her new Skech-Knit – Galaxies shoes, it’s clear why. They come with a flat knit mesh fabric that literally fits like a sock on your feet – plus they come in every color imaginable. (Kind of like wrapping your feet up in a blanket all day – sign me up!!)

FIT TIPS FOR 2017

New year, new you! It’s that time again, when many of us make ambitious plans to get in shape. More than a few struggle to stick to it month after month – we all know how hard it is to balance those workouts with everything else going on in our lives! Approach your 2017 fitness goals differently this year and take a look at how some of our team plans to get in shape (and do their best to stay there)!

img_7852Joan – Be realistic! I make realistic fitness and nutrition goals like working out 3 times per week
(vs. 5 times) or not eating carbs after 2:00pm Monday through Friday (vs. every day). This way I can try to outdo myself rather than get discouraged by not meeting unrealistic goals.

Matt the Couch Potato – This year I’m going to limit the amount of alcohol I drink since it’s just empty calories.  I’m going to get up off the couch and walk around more…. maybe throw down some walking lunges or squats on the way out the door… carry a big water bottle with me all the time to get those crucial 64 ounces a day, minimum… and use it for bicep curls! Just remember to include some healthy moves and choices each day….

Brooklyn – My tips for staying healthy is to eat regularly but don’t eat too much at one sitting. A lot of people eat the most for dinner, but my tip would be to try and keep each meal even; if you need a larger meal, it should be for breakfast or lunch, not dinner.

Also, keeping a consistent workout schedule is key to maintaining a healthy body and mind. Set a goal and make it your priority – the longer you stay on track, the more it becomes a habit or routine and the easier it is to maintain.

img_7738Joey – New year, new workout plan. Best tips that help me are to 1) work out with friends and 2) switch it up. Working out with friends not only helps motivate me to go, but creates competition, so I work out a bit harder. By mixing it up, I don’t get bored with the same routines everyday. Also, it is important so your muscles don’t get used to the same exercises.

Lacey – When the days are shortest (and it’s really dark and cold for my 6AM workout days) I’ll go to sleep in my workout clothes so that I have to go when my alarm goes off.

Lola – Find a workout buddy and motivate them to continue with their fitness plan – and vice versa!

Jack – Running in a nice pair of lightweight shoes through the neighborhood around my place is what keeps me going through the holidays.

Pasquel – I try not to pay attention to anyone around me when the gym gets crowded after the new year.  I know what I need to do and I’m ready to be awesome.  It doesn’t matter what stage of fitness anyone else is at… I’m on a mission for me and me alone!

Dolores – my goal for 2017:

  1. Sweat 1x a day!
  2. Only eat until you are full. (eat slowly)

Ruth – my fitness inspo: Drink water as soon as you wake up in the morning. Before coffee or food. Sign yourself up for classes early so it forces you to go and get your money’s worth.

Selina – The get fit tip that has worked best for me is pre-planning, whether it be meal planning or planning out physical activity. I am much more motivated to eat healthy if I have meals ready to go rather than deciding what to eat just before every meal. It makes it easier to get to the gym when outfits are laid out in advance and the gym is planned into my schedule.

img_7815Mila – I love Seinfeld’s tip for getting stuff done; it applies to workouts too. Grab a calendar and marker, exercise a little every day and add an X over each day once you’re done. You’ll soon have a chain of Xs, and your only job then is to not break the chain (especially helpful for those times when your enthusiasm fades a few weeks in). It’s great way to stop focusing on the big goals and just stay committed to each and every day.
