The other day I decided to observe the shoes that zoo patrons were wearing on a busy Saturday at zoo in a major city. My observations were that the dominant shoes for adults were Nike and New Balance. I saw some Skechers on adults--maybe 1 in 40 and all older model shoes. For kids, the dominant recognizable brand was clearly Skechers for both boys and girls. It was further evidence to me that Skechers' kids' line is strong.
