Walking Mexico With @Skechers_Canada #Giveaway #XmasCountdown2017

The day before swapping cold temperatures for warm ones, I received a couple of packages from Skechers. One was for me, but the other one was for Larry. It was a package of perfect timing. Looked like Larry would be walking Mexico in a new pair of Skechers.

To say he was thrilled, is an understatement. He had those runners on in no time. Parading around the house, he was constantly saying, wow! Wow, I can’t believe how cushiony these are. Or, wow, these are so light.

Truth is, I found it hard to believe they could be so light and hold up on the hot cement of Playa del Carmen. My suggestion was to take a pair of Skechers he’d already broken in for walking Mexico. Nope, he wasn’t having it. His others were comfy, but he wanted these. Not that I could blame him. Just look at the colour and style!

Turns out, he was right. Please don’t tell him I said so, or I’ll never hear the end of it. The shoes fit beautifully, and he wore them every day as we walked the streets of Playa. Frankly, he wore them on the streets and on the beach as well. Apparently, they made walking the beach, easier. He did say his feet were a little warm once. (Well, it is Mexico) Still comfy though, and his feet weren’t swelling up in the heat like they usually do. Plus, they matched his shorts. He did bring a second pair with him, but only ever wore them once or twice. I’d say that’s a good indicator of a fantastic pair of shoes.

Now, what I liked about them was:

  1. Larry didn’t complain about walking.
  2. They got soaked by ocean and dried up beautifully. Now, that might seem strange to you, as shoes dry out. However, in Mexico, the humidity is so high, it’s hard to completely dry anything overnight without using a dryer.
  3. The salt brushed off of them easy peasy.
  4. After 14 days of heat and ocean, the shoes remain looking new.

Perhaps you’d like to discover Skechers for yourself or your favourite guy and see how they hold up for you! Well, you can because Skechers is giving you the opportunity win a pair of mens shoes of your choosing.  Simply use the form below, to get your entry in. Open to Canadian residents only.

Later this week, I’ll have something for the ladies, so make sure you’re following and don’t miss it!
