Skechers wins ninth Footwear Plus Company of the Year award
For the ninth time in the past 15 years, Skechers has been chosen as Company of the Year by Footwear Plus. Skechers Kids also received the Excellence in Children’s Design Award
“After such an unprecedented 2020, it’s a great honour for Skechers to be recognized as Company of the Year. We began the year at full throttle building on the growth of record sales in 2019. When faced with the pandemic, we were able to pivot quickly to navigate this difficult year. Key to this was developing fresh product that focused on the comfort consumers desired, doubling down on e-commerce when stores closed, and investing in our infrastructure to prepare for the future. This was only possible thanks to the hard work, dedication, and resilience of everyone in the Skechers organization”, commented Michael Greenberg, President of Skechers.

“Congratulations to Skechers on its Company of the Year and Children’s Design Plus Awards for 2020”, commented Greg Dutter, Editorial Director of Footwear Plus, creators of the 22nd annual industry accolades recognizing excellence in design and retail. “Skechers was recognized because they were able to pivot, adapt and navigate a year that involved extensive business disruption due to the ongoing global pandemic. Their casual and comfortable collections were exactly what consumers wanted at just the right time. Plus, despite the challenges, Skechers continued to innovate on trend and in style with collaborations and exciting designs for kids”, he concluded.

Skechers’ previous Footwear Plus awards include the Company of the Year Award in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2014, 2015, and 2019 and Plus Awards for Design Excellence in 2000 for Young Women’s Fashion; 2001 for Women’s Streetwear; 2002 for Kids’ Fashion; 2005 and 2006 for Men’s Streetwear; 2013 for the Running and Children’s categories; 2014 for Running Design; 2015 for Athleisure; and 2016 and 2019 for its Skechers Kids product.
