SKECHERS Wins Campaign of The Year at The Drapers Footwear Awards

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SKECHERS USA, Inc. (NYSE:SKX) today announced that the Company won the
Campaign of The Year Award at the Drapers Footwear Awards for its Spring

a year when SKECHERS has won multiple top industry awards in the United

“We have loved sharing Kelly’s amazing campaign and her obvious passion
for the brand with consumers, and are incredibly honored to receive
Drapers’ recognition,” said Peter Youell, managing director of SKECHERS

partners who reaffirm and elevate SKECHERS as a desired brand in
lifestyle and fashion footwear.”

Weinberg: “Since SKECHERS’ start, our core philosophy has been ‘unseen,
untold unsold’ – and we’ve had great success growing our brand worldwide
with campaigns that pair compelling product with amazing celebrity
ambassadors and aggressively advertising through TV, print, stores and
social media. We believe this strategy has helped SKECHERS achieve one
of our largest year-over-year dollar gains in the UK, and we look
forward to launching many more campaigns for men, women and kids as we
expand our reach to more consumers.”
