LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SPEEDO USA, a division of PVH Corp. (NYSE:PVH), today announced in partnership with Flip Flop Shops, the chance to win a trip to Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia – the birthplace of Speedo and one of the most popular beaches in the world.
“Speedo is an iconic brand that really celebrates that Free Your Toes® spirit we strive to embody”
Between April 1, 2015 and May 15, 2015, consumers who purchase Speedo merchandise at a participating Flip Flop Shops shop will receive an official entry form for the “Speedo Bondi Beach Sweepstakes.” One grand prize winner will receive a seven-day, six-night trip for two to Bondi Beach, Australia including airfare and hotel accommodations.
“Speedo is passionate about life in and around the water,” said Barry McGeough, Speedo USA’s Vice President of Hardgoods. “We are excited to partner with Flip Flop Shops, a brand that also embraces the water, to offer consumers this opportunity to explore Bondi Beach, Australia, the location where the water, sand and sun inspired the creation of the Speedo brand.”
Additionally, from June 1 through June 30, 2015, Flip Flop Shops will offer a free pair of Speedo goggles with the purchase of any two pairs of Speedo footwear, including from the popular Exsqueeze Me collection, where athletic meets aquatic in function, style and comfort. Built with Speedo’s proprietary Exsqueeze Me technology, the unique dual density injection molded EVA cushioning and 100% seamless construction creates unparalleled comfort, while the S-TRAC technology streamlines water away from the outsole and enhances direct surface contact to improve traction. The Exsqueeze Me collection is designed to be Speedo’s most comfortable, athletic inspired collection, and offers superior performance, flexibility, and water resistance in fun, fashionable styles and bright, vibrant colors.
“Although Speedo is known for water, we are continually impressed by the quality, comfort and craftsmanship they are bringing to the sandal category,” said Darin Kraetsch, CEO of Flip Flop Shops. “We are excited to give shoppers full access to the popular Exsqueeze Me collection in all of our shops across the U.S.”
The promotion will be supported with in-shop point-of-sale, Team Speedo USA athlete appearances at select Flip Flop Shops locations and online. To find out more follow, @SpeedoUSA, @flipflopshops and #SpeedoFFS.
