New brand alert: Introducing Skechers

Chances are, you’ve heard of Skechers. The quintessential 00s footwear brand was big when we were teens – remember the chunky soles, reflective flashes and those ones with wheels? If you convinced your mum to buy you a pair, you were the coolest kid in Year Seven.  

Back in the noughties, Skechers brought that Americana vibe to your jeans and t-shirt combo. Founded in the early 90s in California, the brand has always had that laidback LA look that celebs like Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears championed. Since then Skechers have featured on the feet of endless famous folk – from Kim Kardashian to Ringo Starr - and now the brand is back with an on-trend new collection that’s perfect for that retro athleisure look we’re loving right now. Take a look at our top picks and how to wear them…

The pastel platforms


Ok, we are obsessed with these frosty green kicks with matching chunky sole - loving that full tonal vibe! Maximise the pastel look by pairing with this lilac tee and some loose-fit stonewashed jeans to keep the noughties mood going.

The rainbow bright kicks

We all need a bit of rainbow cheerfulness in our lives, and these subtly colourful Skechers are just the ticket. With flashes of rainbow fun alongside a stylish neutral base, they’re the perfect way to add a little extra something to a simple, neutral outfit.

Pull out one of the colours in these sneaks and build an outfit around it – this colour block green dress would look amazing, especially with a vintage-style stonewash denim jacket thrown on over the top. Finish the look with a sporty cross-body bag like this one from Nike to add that athletic element.

The sporty Skechers

Skechers are known for their chunky styles, but they do a great range of proper sports shoes too – whether you’re into jogging, yoga, power walking or weightlifting, the Active Flow style has a super supportive sole to keep your feet protected whatever your exercise vibe.

To keep your workout stylish from start to finish, wear with these colour pop leggings or this calming cloud print pair and team with a cropped tee or loose vest.

The chic colour combo kicks

We’ve always loved blush pink and khaki green together, and these Skechers are no exception. Look at that colour combo! Can’t get enough.

Imagine them with this cute and cool blush pink wrap skirt and this ruffle detail khaki t-shirt. Add a quirky straw cap and an oversized jute tote bag. Outfit perfection!

Skechers for kids

So you’ve got yourself sorted with a snazzy new pair of Skechers – how about the kids? The children’s trainers range from Skechers has everything from sleek sporty styles to super cool embellished pairs. We think active kids will love these brill light-up kicks with green and blue colour flashes. This pastel ombre pair have awesome embellishment and easy-to-use Velcro straps, while these gold beauties have a super chunky sole that’s perfect for bouncing! They’re hard-wearing too, so great for scaling the climbing frame or exploring at forest school.

Skechers for men

And we’re not leaving the fellas out here, either – Skechers have a great selection of trainers for men, including this bright and bold style which are super light for running, or this classic grey pair with a flexi-sole for everything from walking to working out.
