Skechers GOwalk: Comfort of a Rubber Shoe with Casual Style for Errand Days and Travel Marathons

Make me choose between comfort or style and I would pick comfort in a beat.  I'm a mom with three kids and I can't have achy feet.  Hehe I have enough trouble in my hands and I can't worry about my feet:-)  That said,  in all my travels with the family (mostly theme parks),  I always use my good old trusty rubber shoes.   Of course,  wearing my training shoes, isn't exactly stylish but hey at least my feet are a-ok.  I wouldn't mind though if I can find the travel shoe that would meld comfort and style.   And promise,  I have found that in Skechers GOwalk.

A few weels back, I was invited to the "Amazing Race" Skechers GOwalk event at Glorietta Mall.  Select bloggers were invited to test the comfort of Skechers GOwalk. 3 groups composed of 5 mommy bloggers were running all over Glorietta to complete 8 missions. That's our Yellow Team down there composed of Earthling Gorgeous, Momma n Manila, Mommy Practicality and Moomy Musings.

We came in a a few seconds later than the winning team but the adrenalin rush was exhilarating!

We were tasked to do a shofie at the park then run across the other end of Glorietta to get our next mission.  We burned calories, man!  But the shoe was heaven!  Skechers nailed it when they coined the tagline "feel the bounce" as the shoe was so light, was contoured properly and I felt a bounce in my step.  I didn't get any achy feet after all that running  Promise guys!

With regard to style,  I love their boat shoe Skechers GOwalk collection.  It took me 10 years to decide between the grey or the blue one, but decided on the blue since I'm mostly in jeans.

My tweener daughter, who is so finicky with shoes (not because of style but because of comfort.  She is the one whose socks must be seamless) loved it!  I'm getting her, her own pair because I can hardly wear mine anymore:-)

Here is the low-down on the science behind Skechers GOwalk:

  • V-stride which allows the shoe to follow our natural walking gait.
  • Resalyte Midsole that absorbs impact from walking.
  • 4-Way Engineered Stability Stretch Mesh for superior flexibility.
  • Integrated Ortholite (exclusive) and anti-microbial sock liner that lets you go sockless without worrying about foot odor.
  • Quick Fit Portal for easy on easy off convenience.
  • GO Impulse Sensors that provides traction for enhanced footing control.

That's a lot of science for a shoe but in my momma language it simply spells mega-comfort!  I have been using it a lot lately since errands dominate my days;-)
