SKECHERS LOVES DADS

IMG_4205

Did you know all the legendary athletes and the world-famous drummer that have appeared in advertising for our comfortable Relaxed Fit footwear collection share something in common?  Not sure what it is?  Here’s a hint—rhymes with grads.

They’re all dads! If you couldn’t figure it out, there might still be time to get yours a card—or use this as a reminder to call him on Sunday. Or better yet, pick him up a pair of our Relaxed Fit footwear.

Relaxed Fit really is the perfect footwear option for every type of dad. The soft Memory Foam insole will feel great as he operates the barbecue, lounges back to watch a movie or even when he’s on the job. Find a pair for him today on our website, and let us know what your dad does to relax on his big day in the comments.

With that we want to wish a Happy Father’s Day to our entire roster of Relaxed Fit dads:  Joe Montana, Pete Rose, Sugar Ray Leonard and Ringo Starr.  And because we also love dads everywhere, we’ll be giving away a $100 Skechers gift card to three lucky winners in our #SKECHERSLovesDad sweepstakes. Hurry over to our facebook page to enter. The contest ends Saturday, June 20!

Here’s a fun fact:  That’s Joe Montana’s real life daughter in his commercial!

 

RINGO MENTORS IN NEW SKECHERS COMMERCIAL

If there’s one thing an iconic drummer needs after wrapping up a two-month tour…it’s a little relaxation. Unless of course you’re the legendary Ringo Starr where downtime might be difficult to come by. Fans around the world recently got their first listen of Postcards From Paradise—Ringo’s 18th solo album and the first to feature a track written and recorded with his current All Starr Band. For Ringo that means a busy promo schedule and a lot of time on his feet when comfort can make or break a day.

That’s why Relaxed Fit footwear from Skechers is such a perfect match for the world famous musician. With a soft Skechers Memory Foam insole, these shoes feel amazing at every step and offer the looks to coordinate with rockstar style. Ringo somehow found time to shoot a new commercial for Relaxed Fit and you can see it first right here! As you’ll see—when Ringo mentors the greenest of drummers, it all starts with the shoes.

And as if this guy wasn’t cool enough already, Ringo will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Paul McCartney with The Award for Musical Excellence on April 18.

Let us know what you think of the new commercial in the comments!  And don’t forget to pick up Ringo’s new album Postcards From Paradise available now from Universal Music Enterprises.

We’re thrilled to announce that the world’s most famous drummer—Ringo Starr—will be bringing his legendary talents and style to SKECHERS where he’s set to appear in the global marketing campaign for our SKECHERS Relaxed Fit footwear.

Ringo’s campaign will kick off with a new television spot that follows the humorous tone that has become a signature of our popular series of Relaxed Fit footwear commercials. Up until now, the series has focused on celebrities from the sports world including Joe Namath and Pete Rose, as well as Mariano Rivera in ads coming early next year. Now we’re shifting to the music world and we can’t wait for everyone to see how Ringo’s charm and cool charisma makes him the perfect ambassador for Relaxed Fit.

After more than a half century in the music industry, Ringo has released 17 solo albums and continues to tour the globe with his All Starr Band. Ringo is also known for his philanthropy and his involvement with the anti-violence #peacerocks campaign through the David Lynch Foundation being one recent example that led to his winning at the GQ Men of the Year Awards for his humanitarian work.

You’ll have to wait until Spring to see Ringo’s SKECHERS campaign, but stay tuned for more details in the months ahead!
