The iconic Skechers D'Lites footwear collection appears on the
runway at seven NYFW shows

Models walked the runways at seven New York Fashion Week shows this
season in Skechers styles from the global footwear brand's iconic and
retro Skechers D'Lites line. Declared the "It Shoe of 2018" earlier this
year by Hypebae, the chunky sneaker style paired perfectly with
an eclectic assortment of designer fashion activewear and swimwear
collections for Spring/Summer 2019.

"Skechers is the original chunky sneaker dating back nearly two decades,
and we love that so many designers are choosing to coordinate Skechers
D'Lites with their new collections," said Robert Greenberg, Skechers
chief executive officer. "From influencers around the globe to fashion
press to the runways this week, Skechers D'Lites is in-demand and
on-trend with a uniquely Skechers level of comfort that people love."

The seven shows that featured models wearing Skechers D'Lites include:
Hardware LDN, FTL Moda, Mery Playa by Sofia Resing, Tumbler and Tipsy by
Michael Kuluva, DFBK: Defend Brooklyn, Bonnie Bouche by Angela Simmons,
and #Unfiltered by Jessica Abo.

Styles from the collection worn this week include the classic black and
white Skechers D'Lites – Biggest Fan as well as select colorways from
the Skechers D'Lites X One Piece collaboration with the acclaimed
anime series.

Skechers pioneered the chunky sneaker look two decades ago with the
Skechers Energy for men and women as well as the Skechers Stamina for
men. The style evolved and the Company introduced Skechers D'Lites—a
lighter version of its original style—in 2007. Though the collection has
always had a dedicated consumer base, popularity accelerated across Asia
over the last two years after regional marketing included K-Pop groups.
The collection has since been featured on the fashion editorial pages of Elle,
Marie Claire
and GQ, among others. And in 2017, the Company
relaunched an even lighter update of Skechers D'Lites in celebration of
its ten-year anniversary.
