Hall of Famer shortstop Ozzie "The Wizard" Smith will promote Skechers and the Relaxed Fit line. The promotional campaign started promptly at the start of the MLB season and will run to December 2016.
"Baseball fans in the USA know Smith as one of history's greatest shortstops, and we're glad that we were able to win him over for Skechers," said Company President Michael Greenberg. "Ozzie is the perfect successor for his predecessors in the Skechers team, Mariano Rivera and Pete Rose."
In addition to Smith, Rivera, and Rose, other promoters for the US company have already included former boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, music icon Ringo Starr, and Mark Cuban, owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks.
