Robert Greenberg, founder and then CEO of LA Gear decided to start another company named Skechers on May 29, 1992, intended to distribute Doc Martens Shoes. After almost a year, his interests changed and decided to turn Skechers into his own line of footwear. His first releases were skate shoes and utility cleats. 

In 1993, the Chrome Dome was introduced by the brand to the market and it became a breakthrough.  It was a spark plug entry that promoted a sneaker made to be worn by both men and women. The grunge vibe was a trend at that time and that made their grunge style sneaker a hit. The company began having celebrity promoters with the likes of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera and many others who increased their popularity.
