So the festive season is over and everyone is thinking about getting fit and healthy, possibly looking forward to reaping the rewards on a summer holiday that seems a long way off. One of the best ways to ensure that you stick to your goals is by finding the right footwear that is both appropriate and stylish. Skechers are well-known for producing comfortable shoes but they also offer a range of shoes that are suitable for a wide variety of activities.
The best way to start getting active is to get walking, even if it is just ten minutes a day. 12831-825 Bright Horizon comes in a striking navy and pink combination on their Skech Knit Mesh upper and is ideal for those starting out. The shoe has bungee stretch lacing on the front for the look of a lacing shoe with the ease of a pull on, great for if you’re in a rush in the morning when getting ready for work or to slip on & off after a yoga class. It not only looks good but is packed with technology features in the Ultra Flex midsole which has superior impact cushioning protection while the flexible outsole allows for freedom of movement. And of course, being a Skechers shoe it has an Air Cooled Memory foam cushioned comfort insole. These would also take you through to training in a gym so would be a great investment if you want to take your fitness further.
If you’re going to a class that doesn’t require shoes, such as yoga or Pilates, and want something lightweight to carry in your bag then 12882-225 Studio Comfort are a great choice. These slip on trainers are convenient, comfortable and come in black, which of course goes with everything. They can also be used for low-impact studio classes as the soles have a traction design for increased grip.
When you’re training in the gym then it’s wise to invest in some lacing trainers as they will give you increased support and stability during your work-out. Flex Appeal 2.0 has been a popular choice with Begg Shoes customers and this season comes in two new colourways; 12908-934 Flex Appeal 2 Navy Multi and 12908-259 Black Multi. An Air Cooled Memory Foam insole sits on a lightweight shock absorbing midsole and with a super flexible rubber outsole means you get comfort and performance while looking effortlessly stylish. For a more traditional trainer look then 11923-144 Sport Dlites 8 has a more rugged profile. This shoe has a smooth leather upper and deep but lightweight sole unit. They will also add a little bit of sparkle to your gym outfit with a contrasting glitter stripe design and glitter around the eyelets.
And not to leave men out of the picture – Begg Shoes have plenty of men’s options for Skechers. For a slip on that looks like a lacing style then 52640-756 Elite Flex New is great for walking or training in the gym. 52180-357 Flex Advant 2 is an eye catching shade of blue (although don’t worry it also comes in charcoal, black and navy if you like to be more discreet) and is a great athletic training shoe. If you want to get out in the great outdoors then the aptly named 51591-756 Escape Plan are a rugged all-terrain walking and training shoe including a midsole with shock absorbing and stability features and a high traction outsole. And as always all these shoes feature Skechers renowned Air Cooled Memory Foam cushioned insoles which offer great comfort whatever activity you’re doing.
It’s important to make sure kids stay active and if they don’t have comfortable footwear you will soon hear about it! If your kids love bright shoes and 80137-699 Bounce N Bop will fulfil all their bright and glittery dreams while boasting a unique visible air cushioned outsole which is infused with glitter. If they want something a little more subtle then 81561-361 Diamond Runner has a black knit mesh upper combined with a purple outsole. For a more rugged look then 97631-817 Quick Pick is a fabulous blue colour or 97454-050 Flex Advant Jnr are great options. These shoes all have laces which should mean an improved fit and hopefully they will keep the shoes on their feet; everyone has experience of when kids lose shoes when out playing. They also have rubber traction outsoles for improved grip.
