SKECHERS’S NEW LINE TAKES YOU FROM THE WORKWEEK TO THE WEEKEND
Matching its “casual meets athletic” vibe, Skechers introduced its latest men’s sneaker line that features air-cooled memory foam for superior comfort.
In partnership with British fashion label Topman, Skechers presented its new sneakers in a campaign that showcases the line’s versatility. The Delson-Camben sneaker, for example, makes smart casual dressing effortless, as it can be paired with a jacket or a blazer and a pair of dark trousers in an outfit that works well in the office and after work.
For a more athletic look, the Relven–Veltor features a soft and sporty knit fabric with leather sides, presenting a different take on the classic laced-up sneaker. Raise the ante by wearing them with a leather jacket and a pair of jeans.
The Skechers Streetwear Delson-Camben comes in taupe, black, and gray and is easy to match with the average guy’s wardrobe, from his casual essentials to his more tailored pieces.

ROGER FEDERER IS PRESENTED AS UNIQLO’S NEW GLOBAL BRAND AMBASSADOR
Perhaps there is no one more fitting than Roger Federer to be the global figure to showcase Uniqlo’s LifeWear philosophy, and the Swiss tennis superstar now appears in his first global campaign with the Japanese fashion brand.
“My time off is crucial. I love getting away from it all with friends and family, going outside of the tennis box. I like my art visits, listening to music, having dinner with family and friends, everything that is relaxing. And of course, running around with the kids is always a big thrill for me,” Federer said in a statement.
“Clothes must feel comfortable, and denim is a material I like a lot. I have worn jeans since I was a kid, and they continue to be one of my favorite items of clothing. When I select what I wear on a particular day, I put a lot of value on comfort because it’s important for me to feel relaxed all day. Uniqlo jeans are really comfortable, even made of stretch fabric, and I can wear them every day. They also go well with many different outfits.”
Federer’s Uniqlo campaign includes TV commercials, in-store posters, website ads, and other creative elements that tell a visual story of the athlete enjoying life at home in jeans, specifically the Uniqlo EZY jeans, which also happen to be Federer’s personal favorite.
