Skechers USA is going to start handling its own business in Japan with its own subsidiary, Skechers Japan. Hirokazu Iwasaki, who has worked previously with Nike, Adidas and Puma, will lead the Japanese operations, which plans to fully enter the market with the coming fall/winter collection. Skechers hopes to double its business in the country in the next three to five years. The company held a big event in Japan to launch the new operation a few days ago.
