We love how sporty shoes can provide a healthy dose of casual cool to just about any outfit. They’re also comfortable, collectible, and can make great conversation pieces — especially when you don’t have to talk about how your feet are killing you. And if you’re in the market for new kicks, Skechers would like to help you out. The American footwear company has recently opened its flagship store in Singapore at Takashimaya, Ngee Ann City, bringing in its brand ambassadors, the girls of K-pop group Sistar to grace the opening, as well as unveiling its four new ranges of active footwear to suit every activity level.
Athletic shoes aren’t just for the gym anymore. Take for instance this Skechers D’Lites Wild Panda Extreme that’s worthy of an obsession. It combines Trubuck leather, mesh, and zebra and leopard accents with on-trend thick outsoles to create a pair that’s versatile enough for the gym as well as for when you want to make a statement in the streets or any casual place you plan to go to.
If you woke up on the sporty side of the bed one day, Skechers GoWalk 3 can just be your thing. It’s a modern classic walking shoe that comes in fun, neon colours. The Quick-Fit Portal slip-on style comes on and off easily while the Goga Pillars and Mat technology on the outsole are so comfy, they give a new meaning to happy feet.
Skechers GORun 4 proves that running shoes can look cool and be functional. It’s lightweight and has a Resalyte Power Pillars that give spring and support to the sole. As an added bonus, the GOknit upper will let your feet breathe even during super sweaty runs.
If you’re an outdoor or marathon enthusiast, the GORun Ultra Road will help your feet handle whatever nature throws at them. We like it for its double rubber sole, an important quality that will protect you on uneven terrains. It also has a fully drainable outsoles to remove water for when you run through puddles. The bright colour scheme is a plus – trail-running shoes like this is hard to come by.
