The California-based footwear giant received the award for Best Brand of the Year at the Schuhkurier Awards 2019
We are thrilled to be named best brand by Schuhkurier and this award celebrates the hard work of our retail partners across Germany who have helped drive growth of the Skechers brand for men, women and kids”, commented Michael Greenberg, President of Skechers, adding: “From our trend-forward sneakers seen on the catwalk during Berlin Fashion Week to performance running shoes to casual and comfortable everyday styles to innovative options for kids, Skechers really has something for everyone and we’re honored that our peers and partners in Germany have taken notice. We look forward to continuing on this growth path by delivering more in-demand styles to consumers across Germany and around the world.”
