MUST-DO MONDAY: HIT THE STAIRS

FINAL blogMany 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.

BROOKE BURKE-CHARVET’S STYLE BURST

Brooke Burke-Charvet featured imageHTML “TEXT” CONTENT:
From racing to TV sets, to hitting the gym and chasing after her kids, Brooke Burke-Charvet’s always on the run, day and night… so we knew she was a perfect fit for our new Skechers Burst shoe collection!

Skechers took her on an all-day tour around LA – a morning at the gym, local restaurant for lunch, and finally the airport tarmac to grab some Skechers Burst shots on a jet during sunset’s magic hour. The shoot was a huge success – we can’t wait to share it with you this season, along with the rest of Brooke’s Skechers Burst campaign!

Go behind the scenes and check out Brooke’s busy day around LA, along with her new Skechers Burst style. We really love the unique knit mesh, comfy air-cooled memory foam insoles and lightweight feel of these styles, and can’t wait to get your take on the new collection.

KELLY BROOK TAKES A WALK IN THE PARK

British model and actress Kelly Brook spent a day in LA’s Echo Park filming her new commercial for Skechers Relaxed Fit and Modern Comfort footwear. Kelly’s costars for the fun shoot on this gorgeous sunny day were three professional dog actors. The trio of canines were total pros—they pulled Kelly through the park to the point where it was hard to tell who was walking whom! Luckily she felt great running through the park during the day-long shoot thanks to her Relaxed Fit shoes with comfortable Skechers Memory Foam insoles.

Check out the behind-the-scenes sneak peek video below to see Kelly explain:

I always have Skechers sneakers with me wherever I go and I pretty much live in them when I’m at home. I work out in them or I wear little cut off jean shorts with them. They’re bright and colourful and they look good with anything really. If you meet a friend for coffee and decide after that you want to go for a nice walk in the park or a hike, then you’re ready to go in Skechers sneakers.

Watch for Kelly Brook’s new commercial premiering in the months ahead. Check back for more details on the #KellyLovesSkechers campaign!

SKECHERS BOOTS TO FALL FOR

Fall is in full swing, and there’s nothing better than grabbing a cup of cocoa, an old sweater, jeans and your favorite boots to feel cozy yet fashionably trendy during the cold months.

To get an inside look at the latest boot trends, we asked our women’s merchandiser Christina to highlight some of the season’s hottest boot styles.

Blue Boot_48696

NATIVES SUEDE BOOTIES (#48696)

Booties continue to lead the charge with different materials and colors and heels that complement any style – and this one comes in your choice of Tan or the hot color of the season, Navy.  With a zip closure and finished edging at the top, the Native looks great paired with dresses or jeans.  The heel is just high enough that you feel dressed for any occasion, yet your feet won’t cry at the end of the night.

Taxi_47814

TAXI CRISS-CROSS BOOTIES (#47814)

A higher heel than the Natives at two inches, the Taxi is the boot of the season.  Comfort has never looked so stylish.  A suede bootie with a criss-cross leather band on the top and buckle detailing make this a MUST HAVE for the fashionista in us all.  Available in Black and Taupe.

Fou Fou_48473.2

THE COUGAR FOU FOU SLIP-ON BOOT (#48473)

For the woman on the go who won’t have her fine taste in fashion compromised, this slip-on boot is just what she needs.  Add a hidden wedge and you’ll be hard pressed to take them off when it’s time to retire for the evening.  This bootie is versatile in that you can fold down the top to reveal the grey contrast lining.  Available in Black.

Patsy_48456

THE PATSY CHELSEA BOOT (#48456 at select Skechers stores)

For years, the Chelsea-inspired boot has graced runways of the finest design houses in Paris and Milan.  Our interpretation of this boot is on point with the hottest trend in booties.  With elastic side detail, this low heel slip-on bootie is so comfortable and so versatile you’ll want to buy two.  And lucky you, it comes in Black and Olive.

Tall Boot_48497

THE HIGH RISE RIDING BOOT (#48497 – Black at select Skechers stores, Brown at skechers.com)

It wouldn’t be fair if we didn’t design a tall boot – and with our line-up of riding boots, you’ll want them all.  Our asymmetrical zip boot is great for anyone.  There are people who love a tall boot but wouldn’t dare wear one because they get tight on the calf.  Not the case here!!!  Our tall boot has an elastic inset to give a little stretch for those who need it.  Add the asymmetrical zipper closure and buckle detail and this look is classic!  This boot is available in Black and Brown.

Whether you like a traditional look or you’re following the latest trend in fall fashion, Skechers has a great line-up of boots for everyone. What’s your favorite Skechers boot style? Tell us in the comments!
