Always on the move? Step out in Skechers GOwalk2, the new closet staple that makes walking more enjoyable by putting a bounce in every step. Light on the feet and flexible, this premium walking shoe makes getting from point to point a pleasant experience. The best part about Skechers GOwalk is that it seamlessly complements day-to-day life, whether you’re looking for a bounce in your city commute, daily tasks or out of town adventures.

Skechers Boutique, 2/F Glorietta 2 Makati
Yesterday I was invited to attend the Skechers #FeeltheBounce Event by my friend and blogger Martha Sta. Barbara of The Beauty Junkee. She is the PR Consultant and Host of the event! I was so honored to have been invited to cover the event. It was such a fun event, full of activities! There was a walking challenge but I couldn't join because I'm pregnant, but I'm telling you it looked so much fun!

More after the break!

Let me tell you what went down at the event. When I arrived, I was welcomed by Martha and she told me all about the GoWalk line. She is so knowledgeable of the brand and everything she said about the shoes are right! They are extremely light, wearable, comfortable and most importantly, bouncy! Hehehe...

She told us to choose a pair that we really, really love and we get to wear them to try 'em out by walking in them and the best part was, we will be able to take them home!
I was (mentally) jumping for joy (because I can't physically), but I had trouble in choosing just one! I guess that would be the only problem with this line... Too many to choose from! But for the price, it's justified to own more than one! Ha!

 I had my eye on the one with the laces, the one that really looks like cross-trainers but I wanted something to just slip on when I leave the house in a rush! For market and supermarket days, and for running errands!
Yuppies revel in a fast-paced lifestyle that takes them bouncing around the city. Slip on the Skechers GOwalk2, and take on the bustle of city commute without feeling the strain of the distance or the crowd. It’s the perfect companion for the energetic youth, providing that additional boost to your feet and getting you through the extra stretch.
Women's Skechers GOwalk 2 Walking Shoes
Now there's a better footwear choice for walking with the Skechers GOwalk 2. Designed with innovative Skechers Performance technologies and materials, it's built from top to bottom specifically for walking.

Details:
  • V-Stride technology features unique angled outsole that complements a natural walking gait and promotes fluid stride transitions
  • Four way stretch mesh at front for greater flexibilty and comfort
  • Engineered Stability Mesh side panels provide lateral support
  • Quick-Fit Portal on heel for easy on, easy off convenience
  • Go sockless - Integrated OrthoLite® anti-microbial sockliner helps inhibit odor and prevent slippage
  • Resalyte™ Midsole - proprietary lightweight injection-molded compound with memory retention helps absorb impact
  • Independent circular GOimpulse sensors offer flexibility and feedback for a more responsive walking experience
  • A multi-directional traction motif helps enhance footing control
Construction:
  • Nearly weightless synthetic and mesh upper
  • Flatlock stitching for a nearly seamless upper with a flexible, slip-on design
  • Soft smooth fabric lining for easy barefoot wear
  • Weight: Radically lightweight 4 oz. per shoe based on a women's size 7
With one table full of GoWalk shoes to choose from, I turn around and there are more designs! Skechers' goal is to replace the flip-flops with more fashionable and walkable shoe. They designed it to weigh as light as a flipflop, and the same easy-wear, on-the-go shoe. Something you can just slip on and you're out the door, but more dressed up and fashionable than flip-flops. It may look like aqua socks at first, but looks better when worn.
And another wall covered with GoWalk shoes with more designs! I just went crazy. I chose three designs that I liked best to try because if I try them all one by one I'd still be at the Skechers store until now...
Yay! And then Philippine Star's Arian Yupangco arrives, and Skecher's Senior Marketing Officer Ms. Lui Castaneda explains to her all about the GoWalk2 walking shoes!
So I narrowed it down to three styles to choose from:
The GoWalk2 FLASH
I will definitely go back for this one soon! Or maybe take a little bit more time in choosing... Maybe there will be other colors to choose from. But I do love the look of these shoes.

Skechers On-the-Go DRIFT in Blue and Red
Arian and I had a hard time choosing only just one pair! If only I could bring all of them home! But in the end, the GoWalk2 On-the-Go DRIFT in blue wins! I swear, it's the perfect shoes for pregnant women, and not only for the preggos, but also for people who do a lot of walking! Commuters will love these shoes because of its comfortable wear and easy to put on after work! It's more stylish than wearing cross trainers with a corporate suit don't you think.
I am actually a loud color kind of gal and a lover of anything pink and bright orange, but I opted for this one because it looked like chambray and it was the most versatile of them all. It will go with most outfits that I normally wear specially now that I am pregnant (which my outfits are very limited! LOL)
Boy, they weren't kidding when they said that these shoes were made for walking! 

The iconic design and premium materials fuse with innovative SKECHERS GOimpulse Sensor technology to achieve the ultimate in comfort and style. Skechers On the GO - Drift has a soft woven tweed fabric upper in a lace up casual boat shoe. Soft fabric shoe lining. Cushioned comfort insole. Proprietary lightweight injection-molded compound midsole with memory retention. Independent circular sensors on sole offers flexibility for a more responsive experience. Weighing only at 4 1/4 oz. per shoe based on a women's size 7 shoe size! Can you imagine how light that is? I'm a size 8 so it couldn't be much heavier than 4 1/4 oz.
  • Fit: True to Size
  • Upper Material: Soft Woven Tweed Finish Fabric
  • Features of this item include: Fabric, Leather Free, Nautical, Vegan
Here's Arian and Liz Lanuzo of Project Vanity waiting for their sizes of their GoWalk2 choices! At least I wasn't the only one who had a tough choice in choosing a pair!
Every blogger at the event had so much fun choosing their "battle shoes" and getting ready for the main event of the day: the GO: Snap 'N Bounce challenge! It was really more on choosing the style because all of them are designed for comfort!
After everyone has chosen their pair, Martha then tells us to load up on lunch because we they needed sustenance for the GO: Snap 'N Bounce challenge.
 I also met mommy blogger Michelle Aventajado of mommanmanila.com. Gosh, I didn't realize that my tummy was that big already. Hihihi!

After lunch, Martha assembles everyone to the "stage" and lays down the rules of the challenge. By this point, everyone gets giddy!
Skechers' Senior Marketing Officer, Ms. Lui Castañeda, welcomes us also to the event! Thank you for having us Ms. Lui! 
And here's Earth Rullan of earthlinggorgeous.com wearing her chosen Skechers GoWalk2 On-the-go Unite shoes in Navy. Good choice Earth! (Getting jealous...)
Everyone has been fed and is so ready to do the challenge! I am so wishing that I can join the challenge but I know I will just slow down my team mates if I do join hahaha!
So everyone at the event was divided into three groups:

THE RED TEAM
THE YELLOW TEAM
THE GREEN TEAM
Each team were given a list of different challenges. There would go around the mall and complete the tasks, they should snap a photo of the certain task and upload them on Instagram. You can check out the awesome photos from the challenge by searching the hashtag #FeeltheBounce.

Sadly, I had to leave before they returned from the challenge, but congratulations to the GREEN TEAM! I heard from Martha that they won three thousand GCs each plus a Skechers umbrella! Good job guys! If I won the 3k worth of GCs I would definitely buy the GOwalk2 Chevron Life Style Shoes in Orange Pink!

When I left the event, I walked from Glorietta 2 to Greenbelt 3 to buy something and I am telling you, I so love the shoes! They are extremely comfortable and lightweight that my calves and my knees didn't hurt. Usually after just a short distance of walking my knees and my soles would hurt, but with Skechers GoWalk2 walking shoes, I felt like I could last the whole day! Perfect for travelling and exploring!

If you are looking for a great gift for someone, I suggest you give the gift of GoWalk2 Walking shoes! Hurry before stocks run out!
