Winter is a never-ending season here in Canada, and although there are countless Canadians who embrace the cold, snowy weather, many of us could do without the blistery days and freezing cold nights.

SKECHERS LAUNCHES THE HEALTH CARE PRO SR SERIES

 

For years, Skechers footwear has been worn throughout the healthcare industry: everyone from doctors and nurses to lab professionals, technicians and more have raved about how cushioned, comfortable and supportive our shoes are, especially for those long days on their feet. So for the pros who spend their days caring for all of us, we’ve made a shoe that cares for them: the Skechers Work Health Care Pro SR series.

As part of our Skechers Work series, this collection is truly the kind of style that medical pros will love. It’s colorfully on-trend, thanks to a wide range of shades to choose from (perfect for all kinds of scrubs… you can even pair them with Skechers’ new scrubs collection that just landed at top scrub retailers; see the offering here)! Skechers Work Health Care Pro SR shoes are also designed to meet the day-to-day demands of the medical industry, from its ASTM-approved slip-resistant soles to 3M™ Scotchguard uppers designed to repel water, liquid and stains. Plus with Skechers’ famed comfort technology at your feet – air-cooled memory foam insoles, flexible construction and supportive heel designs – these shoes are ready to take any shift head-on.

Know someone in the medical industry who could use a pair of Skechers Health Care Pro SRs? Tell us your favorite color here!

GET CHARGED FOR ENERGY LIGHTS

Our Energy Lights rechargeable shoes have been a huge hit this year – our kids’ styles have flown off the shelves since they launched, and now they’re available for adults as well! Everyone loves wearable technology, and these sneakers have so many light combinations (seven unique lights, four different modes and up to six hours on a single charge) that the world can’t get enough of them. Plus, they’re so easy to charge and go – Energy Lights even come with their own USB cable!

Here’s how simple Energy Lights are to charge and use:

1. LIFT FLAPS – Right behind each sneaker’s tongue is Energy Lights’ charging port – just flip up the tongue flap cover, and you’re ready for charging.

2. INSERT CABLES – Energy Lights have a dual cable so you can charge both shoes simultaneously. Just insert the cables into the ports on each shoe (make sure to push the end of the USB firmly into the port, so that the shoe will properly charge).

3. PLUG IN – Connect the other side of the cable to a computer, or a USB plug adapter if you have one. Once the cable is properly connected, the lights on the sole will flash red when it’s charging.

4. UNPLUG AND GO – It’ll take approximately two hours for your Energy Lights to fully charge – the red lights on the sole will turn off once they’re done charging. Make sure to unplug the cables when done (don’t overcharge or leave plugged in overnight).

Once you’re done wearing your Energy Lights, you can hold the power button on your tongue down for three seconds to turn them off.

Still need to get a pair? You can find them here. Leave your Energy Lights questions for us in the comments!

Skechers, Skies, Sandals and Scones!

Time to Socialize, Skecherize and Summerize!

Finding your favourite summer style is now only one click away! Our girl Stephanie from ChicSophistic shows us how she found her go-to sandals on our website and how she’ll be spending the season in SKECHERS.

I have been living the life of a blogger for quite some time now and really just can’t ever get enough! I am excited to wake up every day, look up at the sky and think “where will this take me next?” The beauty of pursuing your dreams and really reaching for the stars, is that you realize at some point, your future is directly linked to your choices now… and to the decisions that you make today!

Socialize

Being a blogger has its perks for sure, but it definitely isn’t always as easy and effortless as it looks! Some days are filled with back-to-back meetings, photo shoots – other days are all about research… developing plans for the next few weeks… deciding which outfits to wear to upcoming events – all that jazz! I have been doing this for a while now and it can definitely take a toll on my energy level throughout the day, especially because I like to keep a rather bubbly, upbeat feel to my blog… but also want to make sure that I present the best (and happiest) version of myself to my followers and to the world! As a result, comfort and style are totally an important part of my overall image and to the first impression that I make… when I am either on camera, entering a room, or meeting a brand representative for the first time – this is when my love for Skechers really starts to blossom!

stephanie-sugar-beach-2

Skecherize

I started pairing up all of my outfits and ‘Skecherizing’ everything… so that the overall look was chic, fashionable, and comfortable! Once I started wearing Skechers, I realized exactly what I had been missing all along and how much better I felt throughout the day! I also found that with some of their shoes being an awesome cross between sport and style, I was able to do things like hit up the gym, then head directly to a meeting… simply by changing up my outfit and leaving my Skechers on! The same shoes that provided me the cushion I needed at the gym, were also the same shoes that provided me the comfort and chicness that I was looking for when pairing them up with my stylized pieces! Each of us get older with each day that comes, and as we grow older, we also tend to grow wiser – I definitely grew ‘shoe-wiser’ and really started to invest in my feet! I had so much more energy and felt so much lighter overall after I started implementing Skechers into my closet and sporting them around town – a 30-minute walk literally felt like 5 minutes – pretty awesome!

Summerize

Now that we’re in mid-summer, it’s perfect for what’s out there in the “sandal world!” I wanted to see what new cute chic styles were available. I found two adorable pairs – 2nd Take – Fall 4 Me and Indulge 2 – Urban Safari – purchasing them online was so easy – before I knew it… I had them in hand! Once I received them, I stepped out to a little beach I like to call Sugar Beach! This spot is super cute, definitely a chic little beach experience and best part is – it is filled with baby pink umbrellas – how much better can things get than that?

HAPPY 150th BIRTHDAY CANADA!

As proud patrons of this great country we call home, we celebrated Canada’s 150th birthday in true Canadian fashion – strongly, proudly and with a lot of RED and WHITE!

And of course, with shoe selections that followed suit 😉 SKECHERS has some ready to rock red and white styles that we know you’ll love to wear for the rest of the year in support of the country we all call home.

This past weekend we fired up our BBQs, gathered our s’mores sticks and lit up the sky with fireworks to celebrate this MILESTONE birthday for the northern nation that knows it was responsible for making hockey a sport and that idolizes the mastermind genius who came up with the deliciousness that is poutine. We drank our Tim Hortons, ate our Timbits and made sure that we took full advantage of our women’s SKECHERS collections that kept us comfy and patriotic all weekend long. We stepped into one of our favourite women’s sport Empire – Inside Look style for our long walks, relaxed in our SKECHERstreet Hi-Lite sneakers and made sure to catch some rays with our trusty heritage D’Lites – With It shoe by our side.

And for the men/boys – we had them covered too! Our men stayed active in their Men’s Track – Bucolo sneakers and the boys lit up the night (almost as bright as those sparklers!) in their forever favourite Boys Energy Lights style.

Here are some fun facts about Canada that you can mull over while you recover from this weekend’s rowdy festivities. Some of them were news to us!

CANADA FUN FACTS

  • 77% of the world’s maple syrup is made in Quebec.

  • Some of Hollywood’s biggest (and hottest 😉 ) stars come from up North – like Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gosling, Justin Bieber, Drake, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Seth Rogan, Elisha Cuthbert, Jim Carrey, Ellen Page, Rachel McAdams…need we say more?
  • Canada is home to 3,468 Tim Hortons restaurants.
  • For one day in 1943, Ottawa designated a hospital room to be “extraterritorial”(international) ground so a Dutch princess could be born a full Dutch citizen.

WATERFALLS AND WINERIES

Ahhh! Canada is finally in summer mode and we can’t wait to get going on our favourite outdoor activities. As we all know, summer is such a short season so make sure to get outside as much as you can to explore our vast lands of wheat and mountain peaks, rolling wine regions, stunning waterfalls and more! We know Canada is beautiful, so let’s experience it!

Vancouver good4 IMG_9430

We have a soft spot for Southern Ontario. With beautiful beaches that line the Great Lakes, award-winning wineries you can treat yourself to and northern cottage countries that go on for miles, we have it made and it’s a region that deserves some boasting. Although some people only recognize Hamilton as Ontario’s steel town, it’s incredible to note that it is actually the home of more than 100 waterfalls and big or small, they are all worth a visit. Waking up early when the world is still quiet and all you can hear is the water crashing onto the rocks is the best way to experience these natural beauties.

If you’re a wine lover but can’t make it all the way to Okanagan, BC to fill up your glass with some robust reds and sweet whites, then Niagara’s wine region is the next best place to be. Some of these wineries may not be as big as you’re used to, but the small-batch collections are carefully crafted and are so tasty you’ll start taking Ontario wines seriously. The region is so abundant we’ve even got Mike Weir and Wayne Gretzky getting in on the action! Who can resist a glass from The Great One and the 2003 Masters champ?

And when you feel satisfied from all the wine and cheese, don’t forget to stop off in Niagara Falls where you can admire one of the Seven Wonders of the World (right in our own backyard!!) and enjoy a colorful and eclectic stroll up Clifton Hill.

FUN FACT: Our Great Lakes make up the largest body of fresh water on Earth, accounting for one-fifth of the freshwater surface on the planet. Lake Ontario is the smallest of them all, but one of our greatest metropolises – Toronto a.k.a the 6ix – runs along the shoreline as well as a curious little neighborhood full of colorful beach/gingerbread houses in Grimsby, ON. It’s amazing what we have so close to us and many find it easy to call Lake Ontario home.

And of course, while we get our feet wet at the waterfalls and admire the summer sunsets over Lake Ontario, we’ve always got our SKECHERS on to keep us comfy from morning to night.

But of course, there is so much more to our beautiful country than Southern Ontario. Don’t forget to take on some of our other provinces! You can enjoy stunning mountain views in Squamish, BC, incredible rivers and lavender farms in Montreal and quaint fishing ports in the beautiful and always hospitable Twilingate, New Foundland. No matter what you love to do, Canada has something for you!
