When you hear the term “award season” there’s a good chance that entertainment industry trophy ceremonies like the Grammys and Oscars come to mind. Our footwear industry spreads the accolades as well and Skechers has been honored with a few big awards from our peers in the last few months. Fortunately, there were no misread envelopes or viral moments at our ceremonies!
To start, the Skechers KIDS collection has been recognized with a design excellence award in the Children’s category at the 18th annual Plus Awards. The prestigious awards are presented by trade publication Footwear Plus and co-sponsored by the Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFANY). Nominees were selected and voted on by thousands of footwear retailers and consumers nationwide in recognition of the industry’s most compelling product offerings. We’ve done very well at the Plus Awards over the years with this being our ninth overall Plus Award for footwear design excellence and the third win for the Skechers Kids collection.
And across the Atlantic in the United Kingdom, Skechers has also been named Brand of the Year for an amazing third consecutive year at the 2017 Footwear Industry Awards. As if that top honor wasn’t enough, Skechers was additionally commended in the Ladies Footwear and Comfort/Wellness categories. Receiving this recognition is a testament to the strength of the Skechers brand internationally. The annual awards event was held a few weeks ago during the Moda Footwear Show and was supported by retailers and footwear industry organizations in the United Kingdom and the trade publication Footwear Today.
