Skechers for the Family ~ 2011 Holiday Gift Guide

My first experience with a pair of Skechers shoes was a casual pair that I bought while in the states many years ago. Complete comfort and sassy style formed that impression which made me giddy to get many Skechers casual shoes to take with me to BlogHer ’11 in San Diego. Yet, casual isn’t all there is with the brand – Thanks to a review here on My Organized Chaos, I took Skechers Shape-Ups to the gym. It was this review that proved to me that Skechers also stands up to the demands of aerobics and athletic activity too.
 Yet enough about me, right? I’m a Mommy and most times, it’s all about the kids!

The cool and very popular Hot Lights and Twinkle Toes for kids took the 2011 school year by storm. See, both children and parents can be happy when choosing shoes when fashion and high quality can collide!
 For the Fall and Winter season, there’s also a huge lineup of Skechers boots for the whole family too. Whether your purpose is for play, leisure or work – I see so many styles to suit any possible lifestyle spent in the snow.
 Until Summer arrives again {really? Did I already just wish for Summer already?}, I’ll settle for the newest Sketchers shoe to add to my growing collection.

I got the latest from Skechers, the ProSpeed shoes {worn by Brooke Burke}. When compared to my other Shape-Ups and pair of runners that I wear while working out, the ProSpeeds are very lightweight and just as comfortable. they are designed for running, yet I have to admit to wearing them at other times too. Having a preference to cross-trainers versus runners for years, I really do like the ‘spring’ and comfort of the ProSpeed SSR’s.

Though it’s hard to gift footwear unless the recipient offers up their exact size, there is always the option of a GC! Personally if given a GC for a shoe store, I would head to the Skechers section first. Boots? Casuals? Athletic and more! It really is the gift of choice {and happy feet}. And if you want to guess a size, they can always exchange – the smiles will still be huge on Christmas morning!
