Skechers ONE Element Ultra History

In 1992, Robert Greenberg established Skechers. He previously led L.A. Gear towards much success and decided to try his luck out on his own. The fledgling company had Greenberg’s son, Michael, as president. It was also originally intended to be a distributor of Doc Martens shoes in the U.S.

Instead, Greenberg decided to make Skechers an independent line of men’s shoes, marketing and designing hip styles that would appeal to a young consumer base. Skechers had its big break just over a year later with the release of the Chrome Dome sneaker. It had a unisex look and became a street style staple to the grunge youth at the time.

Since then, Skechers has successfully stayed popular due to its highly relevant styles, which appeal to men and women of all ages from different backgrounds. The brand has emphasized sports-inspired designs combined with casual elegance, resulting in such models as the Skechers One Element Ultra. This sneaker has an eye-catching look that has been praised for its distinctiveness.

With its athleisure vibe and futuristic flair, this shoe fits the active lifestyle of the men and women of today. Suitable for everyday wear, a pair of these kicks would come in handy for transitioning between activities. The brand’s trademark comfort and lightweight construction are featured in this model, making it another modern classic from Skechers.
