SKECHERS CELEBRATES 25 YEARS

Today we’re celebrating 25 years of fabulous footwear! It all started on May 29, 1992—when the Skechers brand was born in a beach house in quaint Manhattan Beach, California. What kicked off with a single logger boot style that defined the grunge era has since grown over a quarter century to become an award-winning icon delivering comfortable lifestyle and athletic footwear worn by men, women and children around the globe.

In honor of this magical milestone and the holiday that we like to call #WorldSkechersDay, we reached out across six continents to invite some fantastic people to share their stories and experiences with Skechers over the years. From fashion experts and family bloggers to healthy living enthusiasts and athletes running the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon—this eclectic group understands how 25 years of comfort, style and performance has come to define Skechers. Check it out below along with some behind the scenes fun shots from the set.

The party extends to Facebook where we’ve gathered some cool images submitted by fans worldwide to help mark 25 years of Skechers footwear. Check out the gallery on our page and you can submit your own awesome all-time Skechers style photos on Instagram with #Skechers25USA. We would also love to hear your thoughts on Skechers during this celebration so let us know in the comments what you love about Skechers, your favorite Skechers memory, or what you’d love to see from Skechers in the next 25 years!

SKECHERS Henry Street Store Launch

We’ve officially re-launched our Skechers store on Henry Street… WHAT a day it was! We had a team of fantastic bloggers in new SKECHERS apparel and SKECHERS shoes. The bloggers have a mix of our Skechers Performance and lifestyle ranges… you can agree with us that they all look fab, right?

We started the morning off with a fitness class hosted by our fabulous brand ambassador Derval O’Rourke and her trainer Billy O’Regan. They were so creative with the workouts, and the girls certainly had a lot of fun taking part.

The fitness class was followed by a bit of mingling and healthy snacks… what girl doesn’t love a chat and some food? We had juices and protein balls from Derval O’Rourke’s FitFoodie range. Delicious! It was great catching up with all of the girls, and seeing what their favourite styles were and why.

Once the blogger fitness event was over, we moved on to the press, which was just as exciting! We had loads of amazing Irish celebrities and sport stars call in to check out the new store, and of course pick out some new SKECHERS for themselves. Pippa O’Connor (Irish influencer), James Kavanagh (internet sensation), Shane Byrne (rugby legend) and Keith Andrews (soccer star) called in, to name a few!

A huge thank you to all who attended our event, including Joanne Larby (@makeupfairypro), Niamh Cullen (@niamhcullenx), Sian Walton (@sianwalton_), Siobhan O’Hagan (@ohfitness_ie), Hollie Campbell (@hollie_campbell), Leanne Moore (@leannemoorefitness), Laura Dorgan (@lauradorganfitness), Lorna Weightman (@Styleisleirl), Jodie Wood (@jodiewood_), Lynn Kelly (@lynnkelly_) and Tiffany Brien (@tiffanybrien). All of you made the day such a huge success!
