Stylish and versatile, we can’t deny that sneakers are au courant for several seasons now and the trend doesn’t seem to be taking a backseat any time soon.
Cool women achievers like Phoebe Philo and Eva Chen are constantly seen in a pair — which can only lead us to believe that it's an indispensable wardrobe staple that empowers them.
If you’re shopping for a new pair of sneakers to update your shoe closet (because, why not?), Skechers has released a new series of kicks - namely Meridian, GOwalk Evolution Ultra™ and GOrun Fast™ - to keep you stylish on-the-go and in the gym.
Founded in 1992, this award-winning sports and lifestyle brand is known for their stylish and comfortable footwear, which have caught the fancy of many strong female celebrities such as Camila Cabello.
So whether you’re a fashion-savvy lady boss or one whose goals are to #getfit, there’s definitely a pair for your different needs.
For the fashion-conscious: Meridian
If you’re one who has a penchant for fashion and is always up-to-date with the latest athleisure trends, this pair of sneakers is perfect for you.
From the Skechers Sport series, the kicks from the Meridian range comprise of an air-cooled memory foam, a lightweight shock absorbing midsole that help to keep your soles cool and comfortable all-day long without losing its fashion flair.
This collection comes in two varying styles, namely the Meridian and the Meridian — Charted.
The sneaker design for both series are lace-up. The difference lies in the material used: Sneakers from the Meridian range are made up of smooth leather, soft suede and mesh fabric upper, while those from the Charted series comprise of a mesh fabric and synthetic leather-textured upper, as well as various striking colourways.
Both styles cost an affordable $109, each.
For the #girlboss who’s always on-the-go: GOwalk Evolution Ultra™
If you’re one who spends long hours on your feet (whether you’re constantly running around different locations to attend meetings, or one who loves to spend your weekends in the malls shopping), keeping your soles at ease all-day long is crucial.
That’s where the popular GOwalk series kicks in (no pun intended). Known for its comfort and breathability, the sneakers from Skechers’ latest GOwalk Evolution Ultra™ do not disappoint.
Built in with a lightweight ULTRA GO™ cushioning, an Air Cooled Goga Mat™ insole, as well as a high-rebound ULTRA PILLARS™ underfoot, these new shoes will ensure maximal comfort to every step you make. No more blisters while you’re on your shopping spree.
Featuring a soft woven mesh fabric upper, these easy-to-wear slip-on shoes come in an array of colourway (black, navy, grey and mauve, to name a few), so you’ll definitely be able to find one that you can match your wardrobe easily. Either wear them casually with a white t-shirt and a pair of denim jeans, or exude the street-style cool with a floral printed midi number.
These kicks are priced at $119, but the technology behind crafting this pair of kicks are worth the investment, especially if you’re always on the go.
For the gym lover: GOrun Fast™
If you frequent the gym, having a pair of sneakers that can provide comfort during workouts is essential, plus if they are pretty kicks, that’s even greater #fitspo to motivate you further.
These kicks from the GOrun Fast™ will do the trick: They’re built with a breathable mesh upper to keep your feet well-ventilated, a 5GEN® cushioning midsole that aids in support and stability and an Air Cooled Goga Mat™ insole to absorb the shock while you’re fit boxing or sweating it out with High-intensity interval training (HIIT).
Priced at $115 a pair, these performance shoes come in a few colours. Some of our favourites include the all-white, dusty pink and pastel blue - all very easy to match with your clothes. When you are done with your workout, just slip on a dress and you’re good to go. No need to bring an extra pair of shoes - we are fans of such multi-functionality.
So no matter your lifestyle, being stylish and comfortable at the same time has never looked so cool, until now.
