Footwear maker Skechers USA has signed Adjmi Apparel Group as the licensee for a new Skechers-branded children's clothing line due to launch this autumn.

Adjmi will design, distribute and market the apparel for boys 12 months through size 7, and girls in 12 months through size 16.

The range will be available at department, specialty and online retailers that carry Skechers Kids footwear.

"The demand for Skechers Kids footwear is ever growing, and developing cool apparel will create a head-to-toe Skechers experience," said president Michael Greenberg.
