Shape Run 2017

Shape Run 2017 is happening this Sunday, 13 Aug! Ladies, if you have not registered, you have less than 7 days to do so here!


As always, there are various categories you can take part in – 5km or 10km Women’s Open (Competitive), or you can also take part in the 1.8km Family Run as a family! We’ll be a part of the Family Run on Sunday and we can’t wait because it’s been a while since our last family run together!

Skechers is the Co-Presenter for this year’s Shape Run, and so we popped by Skechers outlet at ION to choose new shoes for this Sunday’s run! Since our first pair of Skechers, we have been in love with their comfort, lightweight and performance. If you are a runner, you know how important all these factors are – They can either make the race experience an enjoyable or torturous one!



My eyes were set on this pair the moment I walked into the store – The GoRun 5 Nite Owl. Besides being pretty in pink and purple, it has enhanced 5GEN cushioning for additional impact protection and response. Comes in Skechers GO knit fabric upper with 3D printed overlays, integrated cooling panels at front and sides. Apparently, this glows in the dark as well! I shall try that soon!


The first thing that always amazes me when I put on a pair of Skechers sports shoes is how snug and comfortable it feels. It feels almost as if the shoes automatically adjusts itself to fit your feet, making sure that there are no empty spaces and sufficient support is given at every point. I totally love this feeling! And that is why I wear my Skechers everywhere – For long strolls, shopping, running and definitely on holidays!


The husband and Joey decided to go twinning in their choice of Skechers shoes from the GoRun Ride 6 series! Joey has big feet even though she’s only an 11-year-old, so she had to choose a pair from the adult series, and it’s no surprise she fell in love with this pair – Her current favorite colour is blue!


Jayne chose this pair of black shoes with pink laces, and I thought it matched her personality very well – Garang, yet princessy!


As you can tell, we were happy shoppers that day who left the store with our favorite pair of new Skechers shoes!


And yes, we are all ready for Shape Run 2017!


Pop by any of Skechers’ stores and check out the many styles and designs they have, and try for yourself the shoes to see whether I am right about the comfort part!


And don’t forget to sign up for Shape Run 2017 if you have not! =D
