Feel the Bounce with Skechers Go Walk 2

A pair of shoes can make or break a day of a busy mom like me. I’ve had my fair share of shoe disaster stories whenever I am out of the house. Imagine the hassle of running errands here and there only to realize that you wrongly picked the pair of shoes to wear for the day. Worst case scenario: If I am not bringing a spare pair of footwear, I will surely find myself landing at the department store to buy one to survive the day.

I’ve always been a “flats” kind of girl. You can say that they are my comfort shoes. BUT some flat shoes that I’ve bought in the past do not equate with the word comfort. It’s either they give me blisters on the heel or my little toes. Sometimes I wonder if I’d really perfect the art of shoe shopping.

I always see the Skechers Go Walk 2 billboard somewhere in EDSA-Guadalupe, and seeing the brand name gives me this “throwback” spirit.

My First Pair of Skechers

Let’s take a trip down memory lane: One Christmastime, a high-schooler visiting the department store with mom. I am buying my first pair of Skechers. Yes, back then Skechers was one of the high-end shoe brands in my mind.

I gathered all the searching powers to find a photo of the first ever Skechers pair that I had. Too bad since I cannot find any photo of me wearing it. (If only there’s Instagram back then.) Anyway, let me know if you can relate and had this pair of Skechers shoes once in your life. :p

Presenting…. Skechers with heels!!!  Channeling Lara Croft and dug the archives:)

This is my first ever pair of Skechers! #TBT

I can’t exactly remember what happened to this shoe, which I think is good. Why? Because it only goes to show that I didn’t have any traumatic experience while wearing it all those years. If my memory serves me right, I outgrew this and handed it down to my younger sister. I do not have a broken Skechers shoe image in my head right now concerning this old pair of mine.

It seems to me now that the “expensive” label with Skechers I had back then is justifiable. It was proven to be really comfortable and durable. In short, sulit.

Encountering Skechers GoWalk 2

When I first got a challenge.. oops. I mean an invite to join the Skechers GoWalk 2 Feel the Bounce event with my fellow bloggers, of course I said yes. It feels good to be reunited with a brand that I grew up with. But this time, I am in a position to challenge the capability of Skechers to keep up with my active and busy lifestyle as a mom and homemaker.

With these fabulous lady bloggers for Skechers GoWalk 2

Our event venue for the Skechers GoWalk 2 was at their Glorietta store. The moment I arrived there, we were asked to pick and wear the Skechers GoWalk 2 pair that we like. I scanned the store and it took me an hour to finally decide which shoes should I get.

Take your pick, ladies! 🙂

As soon as we finished picking our pairs, we were warmly welcomed by the generous officers from Skechers, and “Ninang” Martha. I will tell you next week why I call her Ninang Martha. :p

I truly had a great time racing with my team. It was so much fun running around the Ayala shopping district in Makati with you 🙂

After about 2 hours of racing, our team made it to 2nd place. We were given Skechers Shopping passes as a consolation prize.

My favorite #Shoefie with my teammates

Yes, we bounced our way to victory in the same way that Skechers GoWalk2 passed the challenge of providing a light, comfortable and durable feet buddy for us.

This Christmas, I know we are all going to be busy walking around shopping for gifts and food to be served for Christmas Eve. It is the perfect opportunity to test Skechers GoWalk 2 for yourself and I tell you that it is a pair that is “barely there” in your feet. You can really feel the bounce!

Thank you Skechers for introducing me to the GoWalk 2 and I give your shoes my mommy thumbs up! 🙂
