Skechers wins eighth Footwear Plus Company of the Year award
For the eighth time in the past 15 years, Skechers has been awarded as Company of the Year by Footwear Plus. Along with the top distinction Skechers Kids received the Excellence in Children’s Design Award
2019 was a year of significant sales growth, brand milestones, product awards and achievements for Skechers, including delivering some of our best footwear collections for children. Through all of our active and casual looks, performance shoes, work offerings and cause-focused collections, our mission has always been to deliver style, innovation and comfort to the world -  and it’s such an honour to be voted as Company of the Year by our industry, as well as earn an Excellence in Design Award for our children’s product”, commented Michael Greenberg, President of Skechers.

“Congratulations to Skechers on its Company of the Year and Children’s Plus Awards for 2019. Despite stiff headwinds spanning tariff hikes to epic retail disruption, Skechers not only weathered the storm, it achieved record sales and growth. Skechers did what it does best: fire on all cylinders, driving growth through wholesale, DTC, brick-and-mortar and digital channels and hitting on key trends in men’s, women’s, and children’s categories ranging from performance athletic to the trendiest casual styles. Skechers has become synonymous with shoes, reflecting a brand width and familiarity that meets the masses”, concluded Greg Dutter, Editorial Director of Footwear Plus.
