For A Girl That Lives In Heels, Walking On Clouds Sure Will Be A Welcome Change…
I’m a self-confessed shoe-a-holic (I guess owning 300+ pairs of shoes qualifies) so being invited to a media event that involves shoes is always going to grab my attention! So with much excitement, last Friday I headed to Skechers HQ to celebrate the launch of their new “Skechers Memory Foam’ footwear collection, and to find out a little more about Skechers and the different footwear ranges they produce. I’m a little embarrassed to say that before Friday, I really didn’t realise just how big Skechers are – I mean they’re actually one of THE biggest selling lifestyle & performance footwear brands (yes, I took notes when I was at HQ – nerd huh?!) in fact sales-wise, they’re pretty much on par with a brand that features a certain ‘tick’ symbol.
Now admittedly I’m normally a heels kinda girl [see: lives in heels and could run a marathon in them] however I am partial to the odd pair of swanky kicks, and with the new health & fitness regime that I’ve recently embarked on (Jillian Michaels you are killing me right now!) some really great sneakers comes in pretty darn handy these days, oh and sneakers featuring Memory Foam insoles that make you feel like you’re walking on little clouds of marshmallow – well that’s even better!
What an amazing morning at Skechers HQ! Not only did we hear all about the latest and greatest in Skechers footwear, we were actually lucky enough to be fitted with our very own pair of Skechers Memory Foam sneakers so that we could experience first-hand Skechers new technology in lifestyle and performance footwear (I chose a pair of the “Flex Appeal” in black, as not only will they make for a great pair of workout shoes, they’re also going to be a killer addition to a sports-luxe outfit). The best way I can describe these Skecher Memory Foam’s is “it’s like walking on clouds made of marshmallow”, alternatively, imagine walking around with pillows strapped to the soles of your feet. They are super-duper soft and comfy, yet give you an amazing supportive bedding that molds to the shape of your foot when worn and bounces back immediately after removing your feet from the shoes. They’re going to be perfect when I’m doing cardio workouts as they are designed to alleviate pressure and reduce impact via the cushioning. Now if I could just find a way to line all my high-heels with these Memory Foam insole liners…..hmmmm I wonder…… Sorry, I digress!!
If you want to know more about these new Skechers Memory Foam insoles, or perhaps you just want to see their entire footwear range (the mens range is really good by the way! I’m thinking my guy would love the “Wellington” in charcoal) then head to www.skechers.co.nz
