Thank you, Skechers, for sponsoring this post, and supporting breast cancer awareness. All opinions are my own.
Breast cancer runs in my family. My paternal grandmother died from it and my mom was a breast cancer survivor.
I wear these shoes for them.
Due to my family history, there’s a chance that I myself might be diagnosed with breast cancer someday. I think of my daughter and how it would be wonderful if this could be something she doesn’t have to worry about for herself.
I wear these shoes for her future.
The first time I went out running in my Skechers GOrun 3‘s was through a nearby cemetery with my son on his bike. We frequently go through the cemetery because it’s peaceful and mostly free from cars, but wearing shoes that support breast cancer awareness changed my perspective that day
I wondered how many buried beneath those stones had passed from breast cancer. I wondered about the loved ones they left behind.
I wear these shoes for them.
How Skechers Supports Breast Cancer Awareness
Skechers Performance Division proudly supports American Cancer Society in the fight against breast cancer with a special collection of products. In addition to the “Awareness” footwear and apparel line, Skechers Performance Division is supporting American Cancer Society in several ways, including hosting San Francisco’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk.
For the month of October, they also have an in-store donation program you can take advantage of. Customers can round up their purchase to the nearest whole dollar to benefit American Cancer Society for the entire month. If consumers donate $5 or more, they will also receive a 20% off discount for their next visit. Furthermore, Skechers Retail stores are offering a gift with purchase (of either a breast cancer awareness canvas tote bag or pink water bottle) for customers who purchase a pair of limited-edition Awareness shoes.
The Shoes That Support Breast Cancer Awareness
The biggest thing that stands out to me about these shoes is how comfortable they are. I’ve worn my Skechers GOrun 3‘s a few times now for running, walking and various other going about my day activities.
They are incredibly lightweight so that it barely feels like I’m wearing shoes. Better yet, they are the first shoe that I haven’t had to break in–they were comfortable right from the start. I think it’s because of the roominess of the toe area.
Here’s what Skechers has to say about them:
• Improved breathability and flexibility
• Roomy forefoot. 3 layer Power-prene mesh on front panel allows for support while offering ample room for toe splay
• GOimpulse sensors offer flexibility and feedback for a responsive running experience
• M-Strike Technology™ promotes a midfoot strike
• Custom Fit insole is removable for an even more minimal feel
• 4mm Heel Drop to bring you closer to a natural barefoot experience
• Resalyte™ Midsole – Proprietary lightweight injection-molded compound with memory retention helps absorb impact
• Nearly seamless flexible mesh upper with lace up front
I’m proud to wear these shoes and support breast cancer awareness along with Skechers.
Who will you wear them for?
