Miranda Kerr Reveals Her Assets, Attributes, Alliance With Reebok Skyscape Runarounds

By Barry Janoff

February 26, 2014: We don't get to see model Miranda Kerr do much running or exercising in her new multi-media campaign for Reebok's Skyscape Runaround, but she does have a lot of assets to show, and does so without any inhibitions.

Backed by the tag line, "So comfortable you'll forget you have them on," Kerr gives it her all to reveal the attributes of Skyscape, which Reebok describes as "an everyday shoe for active and casual wear."

The Skyscape Runaround effort will be anchored by TV, print, Internet and social media. According to Reebok, "The campaign works on all channels to demonstrate the way Skyscape feels, and will have women everywhere wondering about the shoe that’s so comfortable, you’ll forget you have it on."

The TV spot lives true to the tag line. Kerr enters her duplex Brownstone apartment in exercise clothes and carrying a yoga mat. After she turns on some music, she beings to get comfortable, letting down her hair and removing her sweatshirt, revealing a sports bra underneath.

Kerr is apparently not shy about sharing her features with potential on-lookers. We get a shot from outside her building and are able to watch her prepare for a shower through huge windows that are not covered by shades or blinds. Even her see-through shower is adjacent to a big window unencumbered by shades.

As she washes her hair in her shower stall, Kerr looks down to notice that she has removed all her clothing except for her Skyscrapes. She glances out the window, almost as if to acknowledge that someone has seen her faux pas, then offers a coy smile as she puts her pink Reebok's on the floor and returns to the soapy water. (See the full spot here.)

“Reebok has a rich heritage in developing product especially for women and of looking outside of the footwear industry for the newest techniques, and I am proud to say that we have done it again with Skyscape," Martina Jahrbacher, head of Reebok Walking, said in a statement.

"It took us more than two years to complete this shoe, as we were dedicated to creating a shoe that will perfectly support our active female consumer and, at the same time, was unlike any other shoe in the industry," said Jahrbacher.

The Australian-born Kerr, who has modeled for several years for Victoria's Secret and has appeared on the cover of such magazines as Self, Elle and Cosmopolitan, previously appeared in Reebok's campaign for EasyTone apparel and footwear.

According to Kerr, “I’m on the move all day so it’s important to have a pair of shoes that balance comfort, style and practicality. My Skyscape shoes are a wardrobe staple that come with me everywhere I go, they’re the perfect in-between shoe to wear to work, running errands or to the gym."

 Lead agency is DDB New York.

Reebok said that in the research and development phase, the brand "looked to other industries for inspiration. For the pillow-like design of the sole of the shoe, the inspiration came from the home furnishings industry, while for the upper, the inspiration came from the lingerie industry – and specifically, molded foam bras." MSRP is $64.99.
