Skechers Expands to Mexico

Skechers USA Inc. announced Thursday that the company is continuing its international expansion plans, this time heading to Mexico.

The Los Angeles-based company has entered into a deal with Leon, Mexico-based footwear company Grupo Charly to exclusively license and distribute the brand in Mexico. Grupo Charly will use its manufacturing resources in Vietnam to produce the collection, according to a statement.

Men’s and women’s shoes will hit key retailers in Mexico this year, and children’s product will debut in 2010. Additionally, Grupo Charly plans to open a minimum of 10 Skechers retail stores in Mexico by 2014, with the openings beginning next year.

Pushing a major expansion initiative, the brand announced earlier this week its upcoming move into India, and other deals for distribution in Chile, Malaysia and Brazil have already been inked.
