I was on the lookout to buy new shoes, since my trusty Fitflops started giving me some aches and pains in my toes lately. My friend highly recommended Skechers and asked me to try them out once.
I love love love shoes! and often dream about a closet full of fancy shoes neatly stacked (remember Carrie’s walk-in shoe wardrobe – Ohhh the dream!). But in reality, I am very picky when it comes to choosing the right pair of shoes for myself or my kids. All three of us (me and my two boys – 3 years old and 1 year old) have broad feet and mostly all covered shoes hurt the toes even if sometimes the size fits well!
That’s so annoying when you actually find a good looking pair of shoes in the right size but your toes don’t toe the line!
So I take my time and it’s never a ‘grab and go’ affair when I buy shoes nowadays (learnt from the mistakes!). No matter how pretty a particular pair might look, if the fit is not comfortable, I don’t get excited anymore.
So on my friend’s reco, we visited the Skechers store in Ion Orchard and was stunned to see the various styles and options they had. There were shoes for running, walking, yoga, working out and I was pleasantly surprised to see designs for formal wear too.
Skechers boast of having Air cooled memory foam for their in-soles (brilliantly hugs onto the contours of the feet) which makes walking in them a dream. They are super light and comfy – a back pain that I was recently having from my other shoes is now gone.
The shoes are all machine washable, so after a long day in the park, all I had to do was to throw them in the washing machine, and voila! the next day, they were as good as new.
The colour options for the different styles were fantastic and I was spoilt for choices.
The price is comparable with any other decent pair of running shoes, like Nike, New Balance and such.
After trying out a few designs, I went for the casual and comfortable slip-ons in black, the fit is just snug and not tight or painful. Looked simple and smart and I thought it would go with most of my outfits.
I also got some walking shoes for my little 1 year old (who has recently started walking), from the kid’s collection with straps. Every time he sees the front door open, he promptly opens the shoe cabinet and brings out his new pair from the two pairs that are kept for him saying “bo bo” (I don’t know what that means!).
As the lady in the store told me – with Skechers, you are sorted ! whether you are looking for shoes for working out or your job requires you to stand on your feet the whole day, or simply for walking, Skechers has styles to suit almost all your needs.
So glad that I listened to my friend and tried out Skechers – I have not really worn anything else after getting these babies home! Only regret is why was I not introduced to them before! Ahh!
Planning to get a pair for Hubby Dear for his birthday next month! Shhhhh!
Till then, happy shopping for Christmas.
