Skecher’s Shape-Ups

While in NYC for BlogHer10 I had the chance to go to the Skechers Shape-ups store for a fun morning walk. I had a massive headache so I ended up walking slow with Jill from Alex Casey Baby (she is so sweet and even looked for Tylenol for me).

Back to the walk! The Shape-up before you “Get Gorgeous” Walk with  Andrea Metcalf was awesome.  Caryn and I decided to walk down the Skecher store. There is a story on the event called March of Moms.  Seriously the coolest shoes ever! …feel the burn!

Steph from Bizzie Mommy took some amazing pictures from the Skecher Walk.

Since BlogHer 10′ I joined the Skechers Social Ambassadors I had the chance to check out a pair of the new Women’s Resistance Runner – Resistor SRR in pink.  These shoes are pretty amazing. When running you don’t hit the ground hard like in a regular par of running shoes, instead you feel like your jumping, or floating in air.  I have been shocked at how less my hips hurt from running and I am less sore altogether. I feel like I am getting a better workout wearing the SRR’s then when I wear a regular pair of jogging shoes.

SKECHERS Resistance Runner – Resistor SRR running shoes are the Resistance Runner that has Kinetic Wedge technology designed to help create a more fluid stride that emulates a natural running state. This helps reduce injuries and enhances your performance.

  • SKECHERS Resistance Runner -Resistor SRR running shoe has amazing technology to enhance performance
  • Leather, synthetic and mesh fabric upper
  • Stitching and overlay details
  • Mesh side panels with protective overlay
  • Side S logo detail
  • Lace up front
  • Padded collar and tongue
  • Soft fabric shoe lining
  • Removable Adaptive Comfort Ride cushioned insole
  • Kinetic Wedge midsole
  • Kinetic Return System midsole
  • High Viscosity Kinetic Wedge technology absorbs energy, minimizing impact
  • Kinetic Wedge creates resistance to maximize your workout
  • High abrasion ultra light rubber outsole
  • 1 1/2 inch midsole at center point
  • Studies show up to 13.2% more calories burned
  • Helps increase postural muscle activation up to 85%
  • Helps increase gluteus medius muscle activation up to 71%
  • Helps increase calf muscle activation up to 68%

Since receiving the Skecher Shape-ups SRR last week I have worn them now for the past four days while I run, in four days I have increased running a mile in less time. Yeap! I have already taken one minute off my total time. My goal is to get back at running a mile in under 7 minutes. I also have lost 4 lbs by running every day (I am only on day 4) and eating healthier. I can say that the Skecher Shape-Ups SRR has helped me with less impact while running and my hips don’t hurt afterwards.
