I’ve been in the market for a new shoe and was grateful to Skechers for sponsoring this post and encouraging me to stay active with a great shoe.

These shoes are PINK and sport the breast cancer awareness ribbon on the back. Designed with innovative performance materials and technologies, each shoe celebrates those who use sports and fitness to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.

When it comes to my workout sneaker, I’m not particular about the color as much as I want a great, comfortable shoe. Previously, I’ve worn a running shoe because those are most widely available and seem the most flexible for moving through a boot camp-type workout.

This Skechers performance division shoe is the GoWalk 2 Awareness and it is designed to be a walking shoe that complements the natural walking gait. The insole of the shoe is made with a yoga mat – GOga! Although I haven’t tried them sockless, the sockliner is integrated with OrthoLite┬« to help inhibit odor so it could be like standing on a yoga mat.

The sole of the shoe has this cool circular design of GOimpulse sensors that provide flexibility and a more responsive workout experience. I’ve already completed a circuit workout in them and enjoyed how easy it was to bend my foot for calf work as well as jumping around and allow the shoe, not my joints, absorb the impact!

Skechers Performance Division proudly supports American Cancer Society in the fight against breast cancer with a special collection of products. If consumers donate $5 or more, they will also receive a 20% off discount for their next visit.

I look forward to many more workouts in these shoes!
