SKECHERS USA, Inc. a global leader in lifestyle footwear, announced that it has been named 2009 Company of the Year by Footwear Plus, a leading footwear trade publication. This Plus Award for Design Excellence marks the fourth time in five years that SKECHERS has claimed the top prize.

“It is a great honor to be named Company of the Year by our industry for the second consecutive year,” began Michael Greenberg, president of SKECHERS. “Considering the strong brands also nominated – including Nike – and the challenging economy of 2009, we are particularly proud of this award. We believe it is a testament to the strength of our brand, our determination to deliver fresh, innovative product, and the hard work of the entire SKECHERS team.”

“For the second straight year, SKECHERS has taken home the Plus Award in the prestigious 'Company of the Year' category,” stated Greg Dutter, Editorial Director of Footwear Plus magazine. “Amid a difficult retail climate, SKECHERS adapted and thrived, turning in record-setting third quarter sales and has projections for a record fourth quarter as well. The Company continues to deliver on-target and affordable fashions across a wide range of footwear segments. Collectively, SKECHERS hits on America's sweet spot when it comes to its everyday footwear needs.”

SKECHERS was also nominated for Design Excellence awards in the Wellness and Children's categories. Nominees for the Plus Awards are selected and voted on annually by footwear retailers nationwide, and recognize design excellence for the year.

SKECHERS has been previously recognized by Footwear Plus as Company of the Year in 2005, 2006 and 2008. 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.
