Each BOBS from Skechers Purchase Supports Best Friends Animal Society
to Help Save the Lives of Shelter Pets Across the U.S.

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BOBS from Skechers, a division of leading lifestyle footwear company,
Skechers USA, Inc. (NYSE:SKX), today unveiled a limited edition
collection to benefit Best Friends Animal Society, the only national
animal welfare organization dedicated exclusively to ending the killing
of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. The collection – featuring fun
prints of dogs, cats and the Best Friends logo – commemorates Skechers’
multi-year partnership with the organization. Each pair of BOBS from
Skechers – including these limited edition styles – contributes to
Skechers’ $3 million commitment to further Best Friends’ lifesaving
initiatives. The collection will be available for purchase starting

“We’re thrilled to bring our charitable partnership with Best Friends
Animal Society to life with the launch of the limited edition BOBS from
Skechers collection,” said Robert Greenberg, Chairman and CEO, Skechers.
“We hope our partnership with Best Friends will inspire our customers to
consider adoption when looking for a pet, in order to reduce the number
of shelter pets killed each year. We’re excited to continue to offer new
ways in which we’re able to empower our customers to give back.”

The BOBS from Skechers Best Friends collection debuts with five styles,
all featuring the classic canvas alpargata silhouette and Skechers
Memory Foam cushioned insole for added comfort. To promote the
collaboration, Skechers will launch a national marketing campaign this
spring, which includes a new TV commercial as well as print advertising,
social media and in-store marketing.

“Every shoe purchased directly supports our mission – that one day, no
dog or cat will be killed due to not having a permanent place to call
home,” said Gregory Castle, co-founder and CEO, Best Friends Animal
Society. “With companies like Skechers we’re able to reach an entirely
new audience; we see this as a fun way to educate people about a very
serious issue. We truly believe that together we will Save Them All.”

The Skechers and Best Friends partnership was announced in November 2015
and includes this limited edition collection, co-branded shoe box
packaging for all BOBS from Skechers, national TV, print and digital
marketing, PR, POP and other in-store collateral at domestic Skechers
retail locations and participating retail partners. As part of the
partnership, BOBS from Skechers will serve as the presenting sponsor for
the animal welfare organization’s major national events including Strut
Your Mutt and Super Adoptions, and participate in additional year-round
awareness initiatives.

The limited edition collection in partnership with Best Friends is part
of BOBS from Skechers’ ongoing charitable initiatives, which includes
donating shoes to children in need around the globe.
