Skechers Performance™ Launches the New Spring 2017 GO GOLF Footwear Collection and Debuts a New Commercial Spot at the 2017 PGA Show

Skechers Performance Elite Athletes Team Up for the 2017 GO GOLF

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Skechers Performance™, a division of Skechers USA, Inc. (NYSE:SKX), will
debut the first in a series of new GO GOLF commercial spots at the 2017
PGA Merchandise Show on January 24, 2017. The new campaign stars
Skechers GO GOLF’s roster of elite athletes including Matt Kuchar, Billy
Andrade, Wesley Bryan, Russell Knox, Ashlan Ramsey, Belén Mozo and
Brooke Henderson in various comedic settings. Visitors at the PGA Show
and local Orlando residents will be able to see a sneak peek of the
campaign in a limited release commercial spot on January 24th
– 27th.

The new campaign plays off of the fun, tongue-in-cheek tone of the
previous “GO GOLF Tips with Matt Kuchar” campaign, but with fresh, new
angles and new athletes. The new GO GOLF commercials will roll out
several spots throughout 2017 in which viewers will hear what Matt
Kuchar really thinks about while gearing up for his final putt at a
Major (hint, hot dogs). They will also see a playful argument between
Belén Mozo and Brooke Henderson (comfort vs. style) with Ashlan Ramsey
refereeing. Additionally, Wesley Bryan will make his Skechers GO GOLF
commercial debut, as will Russell Knox, as he tests out the new GO GOLF
Focus in less than favorable wind conditions.

“We’ve been eagerly anticipating the launch of our new spring 2017 GO
GOLF collection and the feedback has been incredible,” said Rick
Higgins, SVP of Merchandising/Marketing, Skechers Performance. “We’ve
combined comfort with cutting-edge technology to create the
best-in-class performance footwear that golfers will enjoy wearing. Our
new marketing campaign for 2017 brought together our roster of elite
golfers to highlight the comfort and functional footwear story and you
will see from the commercial spots that we also had a lot of fun.”

The footwear featured in the new commercial spots includes the 2017
Skechers GO GOLF Focus (a new stability shoe), the GO GOLF Pro 2, GO
GOLF Elite 2 and the GO GOLF Birdie for women. All styles have the
innovative performance technologies and comfort that Skechers
Performance is known for, such as the lightweight and responsive 5GEN
midsole cushioning.

The new 2017 spring line is now available and will be on display at the
Skechers Performance booth number 1059, along with new Skechers GO GOLF
apparel for men and women.

Finally, visitors will have a chance to meet Skechers GO GOLF athletes
in person. Colin Montgomery will be at the Skechers Performance booth
number 1059 on Wednesday, January 25th, from 1:00 pm to 3:00
pm and Billy Andrade will be signing autographs on Thursday, January 26th
from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
