Manhattan Beach-based athletic lifestyle footwear and apparel global brand Skechers has been honoured by the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce as the Best of Manhattan. The Chamber also honoured the company with the Pay it Forward award. Skechers designs, develops, and markets a diverse range of lifestyle footwear for men, women and children.

The Chamber also presented its Affair to Remember award to Skechers Pier to Pier Friendship Walk, an annual event that has raised more than $11 million and is on track to raise another $2 million this month for children with special needs, schools, and college scholarships, according to a press release by the Chamber.

For its annual Best of award ceremony, the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce nominates the city’s most impactful businesses and events, and the community votes for the year’s winners on the Chamber’s website. The Best of Manhattan honours the business best known for its exceptional job generation, employee culture, customer service, and record of giving back to its local community. The Pay it Forward award recognises a company’s history of exceptional generosity that has made a lasting impact on the city, and the Affair to Remember award honours an event that cultivates spirit and engagement in the South Bay.

An 11-year South Bay tradition, the Skechers Pier to Pier Friendship Walk raises millions every year to support The Friendship Foundation’s peer mentoring and social recreational programs for children with special needs. The event also helps education foundations support teachers’ salaries, limit class sizes, and enhance schools’ technology, music, and science programs and facilities, and funds the Skechers Foundation’s national college scholarship program, which awards $100,000 annually to students who have financial need and proven excellence in academics, athletics, and leadership.

Now the world’s third largest athletic lifestyle brand, Skechers also makes a difference through the BOBS from Skechers charitable footwear collection. Since the BOBS programme launched in 2011, more than 15 million pairs of new shoes have been donated to kids in need across the US and around the globe.
