I love summer. It’s freedom from heavy clothes and clunky clodhoppers. It’s the time we look forward to donning some fresh and breezy leisure apparel and that would most certainly include footwear – sandals in particular. There are oodles of styles of sandals on the market, but if you’re looking for some trendy footwear steeze, then Skechers is the place to go. They carry the latest fashion trends and offer a huge selection, everything from simple flip-flops to fun wedges to edgy slingbacks. Your feet will not only look gorgeous, they’ll be in blissful comfort!
Skechers Reggae Fest – Squirt
I do a lot of walking in the summer, but my feet get screaming hot with socks and sneakers. I can’t wait to get them off, spread my toes and walk on the cool grass. I’ve resorted to wearing flip-flops, but I get friction burns and they don’t offer any arch support what so ever. I think most of us can relate.
When I first saw the airy Skechers Reggae Squirts, I loved them, I thought they’d be a fantastic option for keeping my sweaty Flintstone feet cool and comfy. I was immediately attracted to and blown away by the Reggae’s ventilated concept. What a great idea.
The Reggae’s are ultra lightweight and have a Skechers trademark Relaxed Fit design for a roomy comfortable fit. I normally choose wide shoes because I want that extra wiggle room, and these sandals have plenty of that. They don’t rub or chafe or weigh you done.
They have a unique open side design for cooling comfort along with a heel sling strap for additional coolness. The outsoles are made of flexible rubber that offers traction and grip and has a pretty pattern in a matching accent color. The midsole offers support and shock absorption and the insole is made from cushiony soft Air Cooled Memory Foam.
The uppers are made from a lightweight textured mesh along with a striped web fabric side stripe overlays. There is a bungee lace up in the center which makes it very easy to slip the Reggae sandals on, it has a lot of give and stretch. I was looking for a velcro strap somewhere on the shoe in order to slip my foot it, but there are none and they’re not necessary. I was able to slide my feet easy because they stretch so nicely.
The inside of the shoes has a soft brushed fabric that feels pleasant on the feet. The stitching accents and contrast colored edging trim are a few nice details that add a little character to the appearance. They only come in two colors, coral/natural and navy/teal.
Wearing the Reggaes around my neighborhood, parks and doing everyday chores has been great. They’re the ideal sandal for casual comfort walking like on grass, smooth paths, concrete and the mall. They’re not as comfortable on larger gravel or rocky paths. I’ve worn them with and without socks and it’s comfortable both ways. They’ve become my go-to shoes this summer and I’m enjoying them.
