A large floral wall with the logo complimented the new store, which includes two handing chandeliers, polished light wood floors and exposed brick columns.

The light feel of the space was modern and has a different vibe to the other stores which are futuristic feeling with no lack of the colour blue.

Adding to the excitement, host Flynn quizzed the crowd on Skechers general knowledge, offering more vouchers for new shoes as a prize.

Skechers has been in New Zealand for over 20 years, opening the doors to its first concept retail store in Westfield St Lukes in 2013.

Although established in New Zealand for a while, the company only opened in the South Island mid-2016.

Since then the company has seen impressive growth, both here and overseas.

Skechers were first introduced to New Zealand and Australia in 1992 by the Accent Group, which is celebrating its own 25 year anniversary this year. Originally established in New Zealand, the Accent Group was the first international distributor of Skechers.
