Skechers Diameter - Torino History

Launched in 1992, Skechers was founded by Robert Greenberg who was also one of the founders of another company called L.A. Gear. During those times two different companies each dominated a different gender-specific market in the footwear business: L.A. Gear for the women's category and Nike for the men's category. No single company offered products for both sexes, which Greenberg saw as a huge opportunity. That was when Greenberg ventured into his own and launched Skechers.

Skechers' early products included utility-style boots and skate shoes and eventually expanded to other lifestyle designs. Today, the brand is the second biggest athletic footwear company in the United States regarding production. Their footwear models fall into two categories: the Lifestyle and Performance categories.
