MEB WINS BOSTON!

Congratulations to Skechers Performance elite athlete Meb for his victory at the 2014 Boston Marathon! Wearing the new Skechers GOmeb Speed 3 shoes, Meb ran a career best with a new personal record of 2:08:37. He was the first American male to win the Boston Marathon since 1983 and the first American overall since 1985.

After the race, Meb reflected on his historic accomplishment at the Boston Strong event:

“A year ago I decided I wanted to win the 2014 Boston Marathon for the people of Boston and for the U.S. When the Red Sox put the World Series trophy at the Boston Marathon finish line during the victory parade last year, I was inspired more than ever to come back and win. With the support of the Skechers Performance Division by my side every step of the way, this victory today belongs to the city and my country.”

Meb first signed with the Skechers Performance Division in 2011 to help launch Skechers GOrun footwear. Since that time, he has won more than five key races wearing Skechers Performance footwear, including the 2012 U.S. Trials and the U.S. Half Marathon Championship in Houston this past January.

You can wear Meb’s race shoes when Skechers GOrun Speed 3 footwear hits stores this Fall.
