Skechers USA, Inc. is an American lifestyle and performance footwear company.
Headquartered in Manhattan Beach, California, the brand was founded in 1992 and is now the third largest athletic footwear brand in the United States.
Skechers was founded in 1992 by Robert
Greenberg, who had previously founded L.A. Gear in 1978 (he stepped down as CEO of that company the same year he founded Skechers).
Greenberg sought to focus on the casual footwear market. Skechers early products were utility-style boots and skate shoes.
