SKECHERS receives Plus Award in 'Company of the Year' category
Feb '09
SKECHERS USA Inc announced that it has been named 2008 Company of the Year by Footwear Plus magazine. This award marks the third time in four years that SKECHERS has claimed the top prize in the Plus Awards for Design Excellence.

The Plus Awards are nominated and voted on annually by footwear retailers nationwide, and recognize design excellence for the year.

“We are humbled and honored to be named Company of the Year by our industry retailers,” began Michael Greenberg, president of SKECHERS. “To be nominated along with a group of exceptionally strong brands in such a challenging year for our industry, this award serves as an acknowledgement for the achievement of our company and the hard work of our talented team.”

“Congratulations to SKECHERS for receiving the Plus Award in the 'Company of the Year' category,” stated Greg Dutter, Editorial Director of Footwear Plus magazine. “As everyone knows, the past year has presented unprecedented challenges yet SKECHERS posted record sales growth. The company forged ahead with aggressive marketing campaigns, new launches and brand extensions—proving time and again that growth opportunities remain despite a difficult retail climate.”

Greenberg added: “Retailers are on the forefront of determining the trends and brands that are relevant today, so we believe that this award is a reflection of consumers' growing demand and enthusiasm in SKECHERS and our entire house of fashion brands. We look forward to building on this success by delivering fresh product that consumers desire domestically and around the world.”

SKECHERS has twice before been recognized by Footwear Plus as Company of the Year in 2005 and 2006. Additionally, SKECHERS received Plus Awards for Design Excellence in 2000 for Young Women's Fashion, in 2001 for Women's Streetwear, and in 2002 for Kids' Fashion. SKECHERS' fashion brand, Marc Ecko, won Plus Awards for Design Excellence in Men's Streetwear for 2005 and again in 2006.

SKECHERS USA, Inc., based in Manhattan Beach, California, designs, develops and markets a diverse range of footwear for men, women and children under the SKECHERS name, as well as under several uniquely branded names. SKECHERS footwear is available in the United States via department and specialty stores, Company-owned SKECHERS retail stores and its e-commerce website, as well as in over 100 countries and territories through the Company's global network of distributors and subsidiaries in Canada, Brazil, and across Europe, as well as through joint ventures in China and Hong Kong.
