I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Reebok. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
As much as I love to think of summer as a relaxing time when we kick back by the pool and relax all day, the reality is that our summers are pretty busy here. Days are packed with lessons here and camp there and fun trips exploring local things to do on Field Trip Friday. Since I scale back my work hours quite a bit and spend more time running around with LJ, I am probably on my feet more in the summer than when I am at my desk working for hours at a time in the cooler months.
All of this running around calls for comfy shoes. I’ve never mastered the art of wearing flip flops, so my go to comfy summer shoe is usually sneaks. I was thrilled when I was offered the chance to review the new Reebok Skyscapes since I had seen the ad claiming they were so comfortable you might forget you are wearing them. Since I always have trouble buying the right sized shoes online, I headed to my local Kohl’s to pick up a pair. (I was glad I did – they do run a tad large.) I found them in the “running” section of women’s shoes. Only the pink and black are available in-store so I grabbed a black pair.
As soon as I got home, I tried wearing them around the house to see how I would like them. All I can say is – LOVE! They are so amazingly lightweight that I can see how someone might forget they had them on. The 360 degrees of foam create what I like to call a “foot cloud”. The material they are made of has a stretch to it that makes them feel like you just slipped a glove on your feet. I was able to wear them without socks and blisters – that is literally a first for me! While these were found in the running shoe section at Kohl’s, they really aren’t a running shoe – more like a casual wear shoe.
My excitement over the incredible fit is matched only by my excitement over the fact that these shoes are machine washable! I somehow manage to get my shoes scary-filthy and love the fact that I can just toss these babies in the washer and have them all clean and sparkly again. I love the black ones I picked up and am now eyeing some of the other sassy colors available on Kohl’s website.
