New Global Marketing Campaign to Launch in August 2017

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SKECHERS (NYSE:SKX) announced that the global footwear brand is
partnering with multi-platinum, chart-topping recording artist Camila
Cabello for a worldwide SKECHERS marketing campaign for its women’s
footwear collection. The 20-year-old singer/songwriter will launch her
SKECHERS campaign later this month, followed by her debut solo album
this fall.


“This year is the beginning of a totally new chapter for me, both in my
music and my outlook on life – and I’m thrilled to step into SKECHERS as
part of this journey,” said Camila Cabello. “Besides the style and
comfort of SKECHERS shoes, I love their philanthropic efforts. SKECHERS
is making a difference – whether it’s giving new shoes to millions of
kids or saving shelter animals’ lives. It’s important for me to use my
success to give back, and to partner with like-minded companies who also
believe in paying it forward. I love that spirit of generosity – and I’m
looking forward to sharing those positive messages with the world as
SKECHERS’ newest ambassador.”

“Camila is a natural heir to our legacy of singing superstars – she’s
already loved by millions, and is the one to watch this year and
beyond,” added Michael Greenberg, president of SKECHERS. “She was one of Time’s ‘25
Most Influential Teens’ last year, has hit songs in both English and
Spanish and reaches an elusive segment of the market – millennials and
Generation Z fans. With her confidence and character, she’s a great
global icon for our brand.”

Cuban born singer/songwriter Camila Cabello (Epic Records / SYCO) is no
stranger to the spotlight. Beginning her official solo career after four
years in Fifth Harmony, Cabello has already received five Teen Choice
Awards nominations this year and earned a chart-topping smash with MGK
on the recent double platinum-certified hit “Bad Things,” which
generated over 270 million Spotify streams and established Cabello as
the first female artist to hit #1 on Top 40 Radio with and without a
group. She has also collaborated with J Balvin and Pitbull’s single “Hey
Ma” for Fate of the Furious’ chart-topping soundtrack, as well as Shawn
Mendes for the platinum-certified duet “I Know What You Did Last
Summer,” which reached #10 at pop radio and #20 on The Hot 100 chart.
Cabello is currently touring with Bruno Mars this summer on his 24K
Magic World Tour.

SKECHERS’ current ambassadors include multi-platinum recording artist
Meghan Trainor, actor Rob Lowe, model and actress Kelly Brook, TV
personality Brooke Burke-Charvet, and athletic legends like David Ortiz,
Joe Montana, Sugar Ray Leonard and Howie Long, along with elite athletes
for the brand’s Skechers Performance Division.
