Skechers for Him and Her

 

Winter and the holiday season. When others think of scarves and mitts, I think of boots! I’m not shy in voicing that I despise Winter, but one of the few perks is being able to wear cozy and fashionable boots. So, when you think of boots for yourself or your family, which brand do you turn to?

How about Skechers?

It’s not uncommon to think of a name like Skechers and immediately recall running shoes and casuals, for a long time I had thought that was all they carried. Yet, some might be surprised to know that they have an entire line of Winter boots for all members of the family.

At first glance, I had a hard time deciding on a pair for myself, there’s just so many that I loved the looks of! So, I narrowed it down to 2 and then narrowed it down to one based on which suited my comfort style and usual uses. Also, I tend to be a creature of habit, so I wanted to step out this winter in something different than my usual pairs.

I ultimately decided on the Shelbys in black, since my other boots are grey and brown. Funny how most of my casual shoes are black, but I always opted for other colors in boots? They arrived and I adore the color, plus they ‘go’ with all my Winter coats.

They are made of soft suede, so I made sure to get waterproof spray for wear in snow. Also, they are a split-side slip-on, meaning I can easily put them on when in a hurry to chase after kids, or for when my arms are loaded {with, chances are, kids}. The Shelbys also have a faux fur lining and stitching accents, not your ordinary black suede boot. And, I love that the fur lining is inside the boot as well, adding that extra softness and warmth.

Part of the reason why I chose this pair, is that I don’t like anything with a heel for Winter-wear. A flat shoe combined with the traction sole make it safe for me to wear on slippery ice. This is crucial to klutzy me! Also note, I don’t usually tuck my jeans into the boots, this is for the photo, heh.

Now, this post is titled ‘for him and her’. So, my hubby also got to choose a pair of Men’s boots {thank Skechers!}. He was very quick in deciding his pair, {unlike myself} and immediately chose the Climatic in black.

Hubby’s work involves a lot of time spent outdoors, so the oiled water resistant leather upper feature of this boot were ideal for him. Plus, it has a heel pull on  loop, shock absorbing midsole and cushioned comfort insole.

Yet, they will be used for work, so being insulated with Thinsulate for added warmth and water resistance is crucial as is the soft fabric boot lining. After all, it is Canada and our temperatures were extreme, so he chooses for durability {these are triple stitched}, warmth and comfort during wear.

Truth be told, he’s been away at work since his pair from Skechers arrived, so he hasn’t had a chance to wear them as yet. He’s actually due home just {and I mean just} before Christmas, so this actually might be a pair that’ll be wrapped and under that tree for him {act surprised for the kids hunny!}.

Speaking of, most couples I know shop this way anyway. Sometimes I have to be very exact with my wishlist, right down to store, directions, color and size {with coupon attached to the note}. I even know a ton of couples that actually buy their own gifts and hand them over to the other to wrap. Though the element of surprise isn’t there, at least then you get exactly what you need and want and prevents that dreaded trip back to the store for a return. If this describes your shopping tactics, fill your boots … literally, Skechers boots.

WIN IT: One Canadian reader is going to get their choice of Him and Her Boots from Skechers!
