Kim Kardashian to Heat Up Skechers Brand During Super Bowl

kim_kardashian_super_bowl_skechers.jpg

If Skechers President Leonard Armato said, "I had to take a cold shower" after seeing a sneak peak of his new Super Bowl ad featuring Kim Kardashian, we're going to assume the ad's pretty hot. That or Armato hasn't been out in a long time.

Following last year's last minute participation in the Super Bowl with :15's featuring Joe Montana, Kardashian will be front and center in the ad for the brand's Shape-Ups line of footwear.

Of his selection of Kardashian for spokeswoman, Armato told Advertising Age, "There was never any kind of an endorsement relationship between her and any other footwear company. She never put her name behind anyone's product. There's a difference between attending an event you're invited to and actually vouching for a product, which she does for us and I'm very comfortable with that."

So we've all heard Megan Fox is the latest celebrity to lend her body to Emporio Armani to call attention to the brand's Armani Jeans. She's teased us in her lingerie. She's driven a hotel bellman mad with desire by changing in front of him. And now she's showing off her tattoos clad only in a pair of Armani jeans painted on her curvaceous ass.

Of Fox's selection as spokesmodel, Giorgio Armani said, "Megan embodies the spirit of the women of today. Free, confident and seductive. Her beautiful features reveal femininity, sensuality and strength."

What he really meant to say was, "Holy shit, this woman is hot! She's got a great ass and I want it in my jeans!"

Oh and for those who prefer to ogle hot men, make sure you check out soccer star Rafael Nadal
who's also part of the campaign.
