Skechers Diameter - Henson History

Skechers is a relatively young brand compared to other footwear manufacturers that have decades in their portfolio of churning out shoe designs. The American shoe brand was only established in 1992 by Robert and Michael Greenberg after the father and son entrepreneurs found an initial niche market in casual shoes.

In their Manhattan Beach headquarters in California, the famous shoe and apparel manufacturer targeted a younger audience for their shoes by using Hollywood celebrities as their endorsers. The venture was successful as the company created utility boots and skate shoes for men, women, and children.

The company later on diversified in their shoe offerings by categorizing shoes into two divisions: performance and lifestyle shoes.In the lifestyle shoe division, Skechers used heavily on the signature Memory Foam technology introduced in the 2000s. The designs were further improved with the introduction of the sleek and air cushioned midsole foam that is gel-infused giving most of its shoes a lighter feel.

Among the utility and casual shoe designs released by Skechers in early 2017 is the Skechers Diameter series with various models that feature a smart casual dress sneaker that could be worn at the office or for occasional walks.  With the Memory Foam insole, the sneaker has a combination of a smooth leather and synthetic upper with flat lacing.
