Skechers won the Ladies Brand of the Year as well as the Leader in Customer Service categories, and also received recognition as highly commended Footwear Brand of the Year and Fashion Brand of the Year at the 2018 UK Footwear Industry Awards in February. It’s the second year in a row that Skechers won Ladies Brand of the Year.
“Thanks to our international business, we were able to produce yet another solid year, with annual sales setting a new record of $4.16 billion,” added Marvin Bernstein, managing partner of Skechers S.à.r.l. “The brand’s continuous growth has allowed Skechers to be one of the most in-demand footwear and apparel brands in the UK for nearly a quarter of a century.”
“These acknowledgments are the result of hard work and devotion of our Skechers team in the UK and in the US, allowing us to sit amongst the top leaders in the footwear industry,” says Peter Youell, Managing Director of Skechers UK and Ireland.
Chart-topping singer Camila Cabello, actress Kelly Brook, boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard, and Brooke Burke-Charvet are among the celebrities who endorse the brand. The Company’s Skechers Performance Division ambassadors include elite marathon champion Meb, as well as a team of pro golfers that include Scotland’s Colin Montgomerie.
