Founded in 1992 and headquartered in Manhattan Beach, California, the Skechers shoe company started by creating tactical lug sole logger boots and has thrived throughout its history.

Skechers brands itself as a “comfort technology” brand, offering footwear for men, women, and children as they complete a variety of sports and everyday activities.

Comfort is central to every Skechers design, as are high-quality materials and up-to-trend styles. Made for lifestyle, performance, work, and play, Skechers offers sneakers, boots, sandals, and more.

Are Skechers made in the USA?

No, the company does not make shoes in the United States. Skechers sources its products from many factories and suppliers in Asia. These factories are primarily found in China and Vietnam, with lower production costs than in the USA.

It claims to only work with vendors who conduct their business ethically and are socially responsible. Skechers has denied claims it is exploiting forced labor in the Chinese Uyghur community to manufacture footwear.

According to The New York Times, the shoe label is being investigated for profiting from human rights crimes in the Xinjiang region of China.
