Skechers USA, Inc., one of the global leaders in the lifestyle and performance footwear industry, opened its first store in the Czech Republic on April 8. The store is located in the Flora Shopping Mall in Prague’s Vinohrady district, with more stores planned around the Czech Republic.

The company offers two distinct footwear categories: a lifestyle division that includes the charity line BOBS and Relaxed Fit comfort shoes, and a performance division that includes Skechers GOrun and GOwalk footwear.

“I wish Skechers every success in the Czech Republic and am sure that more and more Czechs will soon enjoy wearing Skechers‘ very comfortable shoes,” said U.S. Embassy Chargé d’Affaires Steve Kashkett, who was present at the grand opening together with Marvin Bernstein, Skechers’ Managing Partner.

Bernstein said that Skechers footwear is available in the U.S. through department and specialty stores, company-owned Skechers retail stores and the company’s e-commerce website, as well as in over 100 countries and territories worldwide.
