In the year 1993, the California brand made a breakthrough with the release of its Chrome Dome. A sneaker made to be worn by both men and women in a grunge vibe which was the trend at that time.  In the mid-2000s Skechers began producing comfort-bound footwear that gave birth to several of its lines and collections. 

Since its establishment in 1992, Skechers continues to produce footwear suitable for both sports and lifestyle. One of the continuing lines produced by the brand it the Skechers D’lites which now has multiple iterations all having the same chunky silhouette.
