Help Best Friends Save Lives With These Cute Skechers Sneaks

The BOBS line features Boston Terriers, Pugs, and Pit Bull prints, plus kitties!

Forget about how many shoes your pup has chewed up over the years — here’s a pair you really should add to your collection. BOBS from Skechers has teamed up with Best Friends Animal Society (BFAS) to design a limited-edition line of pet-centric sneakers. For each pair purchased, Skechers will make a donation to help BFAS reduce the number of dogs and cats entering shelters and increase the number placed in welcoming homes. The line is part of Skechers whopping $3 million commitment to BFAS’s life-saving programs.

The slip-ons cost $45 and currently come in eight fun styles for women, including designs that feature Boston Terriers, Pugs, Pit Bulls, and dog-cat combos.

More amazing stuff is likely to come from the multi-year partnership between the big shoe brand and wonderful animal welfare organization. For now, these adorable sneaks are available in stores and online at, and more styles will be released in May.
