After being cooped up in the house during a long and cold winter, there is nothing more invigorating and reviving than going for a walk or run in the great outdoors. It’s so nourishing to the soul to be out in the fresh air and effulgent sun. I like to get new gear every spring and that includes my footwear. If you’re an avid runner, walker, or hiker, you know how important it is to have comfortable shoes. If your feet aren’t happy, you won’t be. I’ve become very fond of a company that provides restful and comfy footwear, Skechers.
Skechers offers a copious selection of shoes for the whole family. They are leaders in designing high quality, high performance, and innovative footwear that will make your feet happy. I recently got to prance and swagger in a pair of their Sketch-Air Inspire shoes that are made with a memory foam footbed.
Wow, these shoes just give and give. First, I want to mention how lightweight these shoes are, there is nothing worse than clomping around in chunky heavy shoes. Been there, and did not enjoy the moment.
The Skech-Air – Inspire has an uber soft insole that your feet will cheerfully surrender to. The memory foam feels like you’re walking on lots of soft cushions. I felt instant comfort, there was no breaking in phase to go through. When you step into these shoes, they will immediately yield to the shape of your foot so you will have the perfect fit. They also have a shock-absorbing midsole layer that’s flexible and provides support, so each stride is soft and kind to your feet and knees.
Check out the outsole of these rock stars. How cool is that? There are 26 tiny air pockets that will add more spring and dynamics to your workout, you’ll feel like you’re floating on the clouds. Each little pocket has grooves etched on them to give you all the traction you need, this is ideal if you’re walking in wet weather. Whether you’re walking or doing aerobics, it will feel effortless.
I love the mesh fabric, it’s nice and cool on the feet so you won’t sweat as much. If you notice, there are no seams aside from the back, which means no friction or blisters, just total peace.
I’ve worn these shoes inside on my treadmill, and outside on smooth terrain; I really enjoyed the soft and plush comfort with each wear. I have high arches and if I wear the wrong shoes for very long, I get a nasty burning sensation that I don’t dig at all. I found them quite supportive.
The flattering color combinations are so stylish and trendy. I like loud and proud colors so I can be noticed if I’m out in the woods walking, plus they make you feel so jolly. They come with two pairs of laces to match your shoes, nice! If you’re looking for a new pair of sneakers, trainers, or walking shoes, I would definitely recommend the Skech-Air Inspire. Put a bounce in your step this spring!
