Skechers Announces New Multi-Year Deal with Meb Keflezighi

It looks like Meb Keflezighi will continue to rock Skechers a little while longer on the racing circuit, as today the brand announced it has reached a new multi-year agreement with the famed distance runner, which will have in in Skechers through 2016.

“Our relationship with Meb has been instrumental in elevating Skechers Performance and GOrun into the award-winning line that it is today,” said Michael Greenberg, Skechers President. “Meb’s hands-on approach, tireless commitment and genuine love of the brand and products have further solidified our partnership, and we are looking forward to future successes, both for Skechers and Meb, in the years to come.”

Since Meb signed up with Skechers back in 2011, he’s become the official ambassador for the brand’s GOrun athletic footwear lineup. In fact, during this past weekend’s New York City Marathon, Meb flashed his limited edition GOMeb Speed racing flats on his way to a Top 100 finish.
