My Amazing Race Experience with Skechers GoWalk Shoes!

November 26, 2014

It is not everyday that you can run around Glorietta Mall, walk like a model and bounce with joy while playing one of the most exciting games that tests the wit, speed and endurance of the players – Amazing Race!

We got the license to do it last week as Skechers put our GoWalk shoes to real test with the Snap N’ Bounce Challenge!

When I received the invite from dear Martha and she noted that we needed to prepare for the challenge, it didn’t occur to me that the event would be like an Amazing Race! I was feeling lazy, injured and sore (it was the time of the month!) – and I thought I would not join the challenge and just go to support the event.

I came unprepared but I just bought my Skechers Go Walk anyway..

When I came to the venue, I saw my blogger friends preparing for the race and choosing their own Go Walk Shoes!

Ok, I have decided to put the game face on! Even if I was feeling injured (and wearing a tight skirt! Haha), I have confidence in my new Skechers Go Walk shoes!

We were grouped into 3 teams – and I love that Skechers/Martha decided to separate friends and bloggies. I was grouped with these beauties! #TeamGreen I love it when I get to work with new people 🙂

We claimed it!

The challenge was to complete the tasks and get the mission cards from different spots in Glorietta.

When Skechers signalled the start of the game, everyone went running except for our team who enjoyed walking on our way out of the store to Landmark where we completed the first task – take a picture of something plush-y.

Next was to go down the food court and buy something that is soft 
(we loved the chiffon bread from Goldilocks!)
Back to Glorietta, we needed to post a picture modeling 
the Skechers Go Walk and get the next mission card in the fountain area of Glorietta 4.
It helped that know our way around the mall! 
I heard after the game that the two groups kind of got lost 
finding the fountain area 🙂
We also made a few stops at two coffee shops 
Coffee Bean and UCC Coffee!
We crossed the streets, ran and went wild!
We were kidding that we didn’t have insurance and we might get 
killed in this game! But it was exhilarating whenever you see the other team!
We were on the lead and thanks to Skechers that walking and running 
feel so comfortable. I could only complain about my dysmenorrhea!

Mission: Take a picture showing your dream destination!
Oh, we all want to go to UK! I seriously want to go back to London!

Back to the Skechers Store – we did a quick styling and it was announced – we won! Woot!

I didn’t get to take as much pictures as I want to because we were so competitive and we really wanted to win! Haha

Thank you so much Martha and Skechers for organizing this event and for letting us test our GoWalk shoes! It is one of the most fun events I have attended. It was a crazy dream to join the Amazing Race! A dream come true event (I have simple dreams and joys! Haha)

My Review of Skechers GoWalk Shoes:

If you have big shoe size (like me) it is always hard to look for a pair of shoes that fits! Oftentimes, you just buy whatever it is that fits and you end up hurting yourself for the first few times you would wear your shoes. The shoes would then feel comfortable after hundreds of band aids and callouses. It was not the case with Skechers GoWalk shoes. It was my first time to actually use the pair for real walking (I just initially used it for a photoshoot where I also jumped and bounced!).

I totally abused the Skechers Go Walk (or abuse my feet) by walking, running and bouncing around the mall. My feet just sit perfectly inside the shoes, and Skecher GoWalk feel light that it seems like it was following my feet’s movement. 

I would have wanted to get the Boat Shoes-type but they were unavailable when I requested for them. I am glad that my pair still looks versatile and cute even if I wore it with skirt 🙂

The day after the Skechers GoWalk Snap N’ Bounce event, we could only complain about sore calves and thighs, but not sore or calloused feet!

Thank you so much Skechers and Martha for having me! I cannot wait to get another pair!

Now which one to choose?
