"Our portfolio of brands delivered Deckers' largest quarter in history, with balanced growth among our direct-to-consumer and wholesale channels and across multiple geographies," said Dave Powers, president and chief executive officer.
"We believe Hoka and Ugg are two of the strongest brands in the footwear industry, which are complimented by our strong operating model and fortified balance sheet. While we have continued to experience unprecedented demand for our brands, we are still navigating a challenging supply chain and pandemic environment.”
