MARCH BREAK IS FOR THE KIDS…AND SKECHERS!

We’ve made it to March Break, which means we’re over halfway through the school year, and warmer weather is just around the corner. It’s safe to say that we’re pretty happy about it, and we’re going to guess that your kids are too! With so many options, settling on one can be a challenge. Do you send the kids to camp? Brave the airports and go on a family vacation? Maybe you just hang low and take a week to relax around the house. Whatever you end up doing, Skechers has your kids’ footwear covered and comfort will be key.

VACATION ADVENTURES

Found a vacation destination where you can relax as a family but also experience some epic adventures? Our Kids’ Sport collections are the perfect mix of durability and style that will last them the whole week and beyond.

For your sporty girl who loves to take the trail less traveled, we’ve got our fav Flex Appeal 20 – Insights II, which come in a range of colours to match any personal style. And if she wants a little more pizazz but the same function, check out the Skech-Air – Bounce N Bop complete with bungee laces and fun detailing that keep this style sporty yet feminine for your little fashionista.

Have an active little boy who climbs, jumps, runs and is constantly on the move everywhere you go? One great option is the Ultrapulse that offers a convenient laceless closure for easy on/off wear. With so many colours to choose from, you may want to grab a couple to coordinate with his favourite outfits.

CAMP WEEK DONE RIGHT

Can’t get away this March Break and need to keep the kids busy? Camp is a great solution! Keep your son’s camp style fun and illuminated this year with our ever-popular Energy Lights collection. Countless colors and sequences in this innovative collection puts the power of the light show in his hands. If he’s looking for a pair that’s a bit sportier but matches his trendy style, then we definitely suggest our Kinectors – Thermovolt shoe.

And for your little girl who boasts a big personality, we’ve got some light up sneakers that are sure to make her stand out. For a sporty look, she can spend her days in our Girls’ S-Lights. Need something a little more unique? Try our Twinkle Toes: Shuffles – Sparkle Skies. With rhinestud sequins, glitter finish accents, and patch detailing – what’s not to love?

 

UNWINDING AT HOME

Sometimes we really just need time to relax, unwind, watch some TV, or read a good book. And kids need it too! With Skechers they can find at-home comfort all week long, and we’ve got the cutest shoes for their little feet. Easy on/off slip-ons are great for around the house and the Girl’s Pureflex 3 flats are super fun! For your boys, our Skech-Flex 2.0 – Wentland is a simple style that offers lightweight breathability and an air-cooled memory foam insole for all-day comfort.

No matter how you and your kids plan on spending their March Break, it’s always best to do it in style and comfort. Tell us what you’re up to this week and let us know which Skechers styles your kids will be wearing on their time off from school!

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE

As a very famous singer once said, “Give peace a chance.” Established in 1981 after unanimous resolution by the United Nations, the International Day of Peace provides for a date (September 21) shared around the globe “for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.”

We share in that commitment and asked our Skechers friends around the world seen in the images below to flash their peace signs to commemorate this important day.  To learn more about special events happening tied to this year’s UN theme of “Together for Peace:  Respect, Safety and Dignity for All,” check out the map at internationaldayofpeace.org.  We want to hear from you!  Let us know how you plan to reflect and act in the name of global peace in the comments.

NEW SCHOOL YEAR, NEW KICKS & A NEW WAY TO SHOP FOR SKECHERS WITH LISTEN2LENA!

Lena Almeida from Listen2Lena shows us how she gets her boys Back to School ready with #SKECHERS. She’s loving how easy it is to shop for their favourite styles. Read on to find out more!

If you’re a long-time follower of my blog, and you happen to pay more attention to detail than most, you’ll have picked up on one, indisputable, impossible-to-ignore truth –
My boys ALWAYS wear SKECHERS shoes.

They love the fresh designs and wide array of colours and styles; I love the durability and affordable prices. From S Lights to Skech-TrainSKECHERS GOrun to Nitrate, my boys have worn them all.

 

However, until very recently, I had what we Canadians call “.com” envy. It happens when we discover a brand’s US website offers an enviable selection of products, whereas the Canadian counterpart… doesn’t.

That was once true for SKECHERS. Hey, no shame in their e-commerce game! (Maybe a little.) But they knew they had to change things up, and trust me when I say they delivered. Introducing the ALL NEW Canadian skechers.com/en-ca – with the option to pay in Canadian funds, and ship to Canadian addresses!

Suddenly, Canadians have access to an incredible selection of SKECHERS’ hottest shoes at amazing prices. Shipping is a flat $8.95 + tax no matter where you ship to in Canada, but *of course* I always find a way to hack shipping fees –

If you sign up for a FREE SKECHERS Elite Membership, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

– Discounted standard shipping (just $4.95 + tax per order)
– Earn points and get rewards with every purchase
– Exclusive member-only savings and contests

I mean, this is all great, but can we circle back to my original point – you now have access to hundreds, if not thousands, of SKECHERS styles for the whole family!

Speaking of, you just know my boys had to start the year in style! They adore these SKECHERS Emoji Jagged High Tops, aptly named Food Brawl and Number 2!

These shoes are so stinkin’ cute! (Pun NOT intended, I swear!) They have a smooth woven canvas fabric upper and casual high-top sneaker design. The stitching accents and contrast rubber toe cap front set off the sides, which feature a cool emoji print. Don’t miss the removable lace charm accent!

Of course, since most school children require two pairs of shoes (indoor and outdoor sneakers), I selected another pair of staples: SKECHERS’ revered Skech-Train shoes.

Think multi-purpose comfort! They offer a slip-on athletic sporty training sneaker design with 3D printed lightweight sculpted side panel overlays for lightweight stability. Plus, a gel-infused memory foam cushioned comfort insole and shock-absorbing midsole means they’ll be cool and comfortable as they hit the playground.

Love what you see? All of the shoes featured above are just $60.00 at skechers.com/en-ca. But don’t think I let my boys have all the fun – I’ll be back to feature some AH-MAZING shoes for men and women. Trust me, when you see mine, you’ll say “they were made for you, Lena!”

In the meantime, visit my Facebook fan page between September 18 and September 20 for a VERY special promotion – 20 lucky followers will receive a 20% off discount code and FREE shipping for the all-new Canadian skechers.com/en-ca!

GETTING BACK TO ROUTINE IN STYLE THIS FALL WITH KISH

Summer is about to come to an end and that means that some of us will be entering a new stage of life. Once college or university has ended, it is time to pound the pavement and start interviewing and working. Having affordable yet stylish shoes is important for this next stage of life.

STEP INTO YOUR CAREER, IN STYLE.

I’ve partnered with Skechers this fall to bring you some styling tips and outfit ideas for this upcoming season. Consider more timeless pieces and comfortable options as well. Some of you have just finished school and are entering a new phase in life. Instead of going back to school, there are those that are beginning a new job.

Entering the workforce can be intimidating and stressful and on top of all that you will probably have to revamp your closet as well. Wearing the same sweatpants everyday will not do, so you have to step things up for your new adult job. Dark denim and a long jacket should be a staple for any stylish, grown man. Most importantly, keep the look fresh with a pair of crisp sneakers. Who said you had to wear stiff leather dress shoes to the office? The key to wearing sneakers to the office is keeping them clean. Don’t wear the same shoes you bring to the gym. I chose the Modern Jogger in Grey for my work outfit. I like how these fit comfortably and have minimalist styling. Believe it or not, these ones are slip on which makes it easy to put on and jet out the door for work.

 

 

For my second look, I decided to go for a relaxed, weekend vibe. Weekends are for walking around and exploring the city. Living downtown is the best in the fall, and I love to walk around shopping and seeing the sites. It’s the perfect time to run little errands while simultaneously trying to unwind from the long work week.

 

WALKABOUT WEEKEND

Mark Nason for Skechers is one of my favorites, and has been a go to in the past. Check out the last time I wore them, here. Fall will always be a denim daze, as it is the perfect fabric for the season. It’s heavy enough for a chilly night but still breathable. Weekends are the best time to rock a Canadian Tux, and denim-on-denim will never die. Pair this look will these sleek boots and you have a comfortable and stylish look.
