Shoe Carnival Blazes into Back-to-School with Terry Crews as New “Spokesfeet” and a Chance at Over $1 Million in Cash and Prizes in New Megastar Giveaway

EVANSVILLE, Ind.--()--Shoe Carnival, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCVL), a leading retailer of footwear and accessories for the family, has launched a new back-to-school campaign with actor, television host, and entrepreneur Terry Crews that kicks off the company’s biggest season of savings on top footwear brands, customer giveaways and community giving.

The tongue-in-cheek campaign features a different side of Crews, famous for his megawatt smile and muscular physique. In his role as “Spokesfeet” the spots feature Crews’ less famous – and less expensive – feet, celebrating Shoe Carnival’s ability to pass savings onto its customers with the best back-to-school deals on top brands like Nike, HEYDUDE, adidas and more.

“Terry was a natural choice for our campaign,” said Mark Worden, President and Chief Executive Officer of Shoe Carnival. “He grew up in a family that, like Shoe Carnival customers, understood the importance of value. Terry also shares our value of community engagement, including his longtime relationship with our back-to-school partner, the Boys & Girls Club of America.”

The collaboration with Shoe Carnival is a natural one for Crews, who grew up in the Midwest and has focused much of his charitable giving on youth causes.

“I’m thrilled to partner with Shoe Carnival to help put cool shoes within reach for all families as they gear up for another school year,” said Terry Crews. “Growing up in Flint, Michigan, I know first-hand how important shoes are for kids and how much saving on those shoes matters to hardworking families.”
