Notable Features

Taking the spotlight in this vintage designed jogger sneaker is the signature Air-Cooled Memory Foam that keeps the feet cushioned all-day. Since its invention in the 1960s, Memory Foam was used mostly in space technology. However, over the years, Memory Foam has been used in many products including the insoles of shoes. With a considerable portion of Skechers’ sneaker collection using Memory Foam technology, it has helped a lot in bringing comfort to the next level.

The Memory Foam technology used in Skechers sneakers is concentrated in the insoles for a more personalized fit as the foam adheres to the contours of the feet. With Skechers Air-cooled Memory Foam, your feet are assured of all-day comfort to cushion any impact from every step.  Further improving the comfort level is the shock-absorbing jogger-style midsole.

Skechers OG 85 History

Skechers is relatively a young brand compared to other sneaker brands. The California-based company, founded by father and son Robert and Michael Greenberg in 1992, made use of their keen eye to spot niche markets, retail, and marketing insights, to get the Skechers sneakers noticed worldwide.

The company initially started releasing trendy and casual style Skechers sneakers aimed primarily for 19 to 40-year-old women and men. With their headquarters in Manhattan Beach, California, Skechers USA, Inc. has been at the forefront of design and innovation in the footwear industry for more than 25 years. Known for their vast array of fit and designs, Skechers sneakers have a catalog that spread from running to golf, walking shoes to work shoes, to name a few.

A fusion of classic influence and modern expression, Skechers Originals were launched in 2016 to offer a full throwback style in sneakers. The vintage designs promise contemporary comfort and technology so that classic styles need not disappoint with dated technology. With Air-Cooled Memory Foam insoles and current fashion styling, Skechers Originals design inspirations come from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. The Skechers OG 85 brings us to the mid-1980s at the height of the recreational jogging and running fad in the United States.
