Sistar fully represents and embodies the qualities that a SKECHERS Brand Ambassador should possess –Trendy, Active and Sporty, to reflect the brand and the products range; and bolstered by Sistar’s powerful influence in the region with millions of fans.

Formed in 2010 under the management of Starship Entertainment, Sistar made their official debut with the song “Push Push” on 1 June 2010. Subsequently, on 9 August 2011, the girls released their first studio album entitled “So Cool”. With their superb talents in singing and dancing as well as distinct styles and unique personalities, the group became well-received in South Korea in a short span of time and has gone on to snatch a series of achievements and awards as a group as well as individually.

The seemingly unstoppable girl group will appear in the regions’ marketing and social media campaign for a series of SKECHERS footwear products, including SKECHERS heritage D’Lites, SKECHERS Performance GOwalk 3, GOrun 4, and apparel as well.

Besides Sistar, SKECHERS has also worked with many international celebrities and TV personalities as Brand Ambassadors.

Come 26 June 2015, SKECHERS Singapore is set to open their new flagship store to the public at Ngee Ann City, #B2-04. The new 1,700sqf space in Singapore is the first Asian flagship store to embrace an industrial and modern concept, accompanied by a touch of vintage elements.

The store entrance is framed by a brick wall to give a raw industrial edge that is juxtaposed by the modern inviting interior. Utilizing silver metal supports with exposed welds and fasteners, the store space is given a constructed and contemporary look. Reclaimed natural wood is used to inject warm accents to the overall space, as well as segmenting the collections. On top of that, the new flagship uses LED backlit technology to establish a “mixed-bag” vernacular, a technique widely practiced amongst today’s leading interior architects.
