Skechers' (SKX) 1.9% gain today is attributed to the Boston Marathon victory by Meb Keflezighi, the U.S. runner who endorses its shoes and the first American man to win the race since 1983.

SKX calls Keflezighi's win "a huge leap forward for the entire Skechers performance division, the entire brand as a whole."

The women's race in Boston was won by Kenyan Rita Jeptoo, wearing Nike (NKE) shoes.
