SKECHERS Launches Mobile App to Streamline E-Commerce and In-Store Experience for Consumers

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SKECHERS USA, Inc. (NYSE:SKX), a global leader in the lifestyle and
performance footwear industry and the number two footwear brand in the
United States, today announced the debut of an all-new SKECHERS
application for Apple and Android mobile devices that is set to elevate
the brand’s consumer purchase experience both for e-commerce and within
SKECHERS retail stores.

The SKECHERS mobile app allows consumers in the United States to
purchase their favorite SKECHERS styles for men, women and kids anywhere
they feel the need to shop for footwear. Shoppers can learn about
products by viewing the latest commercials and a native one-touch
checkout with Apple Pay and Android Pay makes purchases fast and easy.
Additionally, the app offers special features that will drive consumers
to the retail experience including a store locator, proximity
notifications for offers and events in nearby stores, and a barcode
search that will help the shopper easily find and order additional sizes
and colors of a style that might not be available in the store. The app
also gives shoppers full access to their SKECHERS Elite™ account to
track points and redeem rewards for use both in the app as well as in
SKECHERS retail stores.

“The retail environment has shifted as an increasing number of
millennial and post-millennial consumers seek out the most convenient,
informative, and streamlined shopping experiences,” began Michael
Greenberg, president of SKECHERS. “We’re excited that the new SKECHERS
app will allow us to better reach and connect with the younger
demographic of our fan base both on-the-go and through stronger
interactive elements in our brick and mortar retail stores. By
encouraging engagement, we hope to drive excitement for the brand and
make it easy for men and women to purchase that perfect pair when they
discover it online or out in the world.”

The new SKECHERS mobile app will also include a shopping enabled social
media component that will drive discovery and encourage fans of the
brand to share images of their best SKECHERS looks. Instagram images
posted with #SKECHERS will appear in a devoted “ShopIG” section of the
app that will allow consumers to easily purchase the shoes seen in their
favorite images.

The app was developed in a partnership with the engineering team at
PredictSpring—creator of the first native mobile commerce app platform
that extends into the omni-channel and social commerce space. Other
retailers that recently released apps built using the PredictSpring
platform include Calvin Klein, New York & Company, Woodcraft, Claire’s
and Vineyard Vines.

The new SKECHERS app is available to download now for iPhone, iPad and
iPod Touch in the Apple App Store (
and for Android devices in the Google Play store (
