Be one of the first to preview Skechers’ first ever Super Bowl commercial, featuring testimonials by real consumers and Super Bowl legend Joe Montana. Then simply comment on this post before game time Sunday (6 p.m. ET on Feb. 7) and you’ll be entered to win a free pair of Skechers Shape-Ups. By the way, I really don’t want to know what your shoe size is. If I draw your name, Skechers will send you a coupon for the free pair of shoes.

It’s fitting that Skechers’ first Super Bowl ad is for its popular Shape-Ups athletic shoe and endorsed by an NFL Hall of Fame player. The shoe promoting weight loss, firm calf muscles and improved strength and posture, has received thousands of testimonials heralding its positive overall body effects for consumers. For that very reason, Skechers is choosing to let the shoe and consumer speak for itself in the ad.

Says Joe Montana of his experience with Shape-Ups:

“I spent 16 years on a football field—it was an amazing time, but also pushed my body to its limit. Since I started walking in Shape-Ups, I have noticed an improvement in my core strength, and the pressure on my back and knees has eased.”

Sunday will also be the rollout of where fans of the shoe across the country can view additional Shape-Up stories and videos and have the opportunity to create and share their own story.

So, go ahead and comment on this post to be entered to win. Employees of b5media Inc. and people related to me are not eligible. Comment must be posted on or before Sunday, February 7, 2010 at 6 p.m. ET. You must have a valid email address to be eligible. And please note that all comments need to be approved before they are posted. Which means I need to see them. And I don’t monitor this thing 24/7, so don’t be alarmed if your comment isn’t immediately visible. I will announce the winner here Monday morning, February 8. The winner will also be notified via email.

    I like the commercial – it’s short, sweet, and to the point. My focus was on the shoes rather than the actors and now I want a pair of Skechers Shape-Ups even more than I did before. Thanks for the preview.

  • deb c

    I played soccer until I was in my 30′s and it took a beating on my knees. Goalies used to dive at them. Anyway, I’ve been seeing the Shape-Ups advertised and really want to try them, not only for the good of my knees but also for the toning and posture factor. I had no idea they made products for men and am impressed that Joe Montana has worn them and likes them,but, I don’t go by other people opinions a lone; I have to try them for myself. Thank you for the opportunity.

    While at work I noticed a nurse wearing a pair of Shape-Ups(with their unique shape, they’re easy to spot). I stopped her and asked her if she noticed any difference with them instead of her normal nurses’ “sensible shoes”. She was enthusiastic about the shoes, stating that what she noticed the most is that at the end of her shift, her feet and lower back didn’t hurt. She went on to say that she was so happy with them that she gifted some to her sister and mother. I didnt realize that these shoes were made for men too.
