Six:02 and The Reebok Skyscape Runaround

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Reebok.

This past weekend I visited my local Six:02 store at Memorial City Mall to buy some Reebok Skyscapes. I must start this off by telling you I knew nothing about Six:02 and I’m not a real big fan of Reebok. Spoiler alert: things have changed on that front.

My first impression of the store: this store is for women! I loved the modern feel of the store. Everything had a place and it was very organized. The store sells different brands from Asics to Reebok so there is a lot of variety there in brand but also a variety in clothing, acessories and shoes. I was pleasantly surprised. Cross training, running, dancing, yoga; this store had you covered on all fronts in all areas. The bad thing is there isn’t plus size clothing in the store, or at least I didn’t see it.  Three years ago, I wouldn’t have been able to purchase much out of the store.

The store is really inviting and it’s a place you want to stay for a while. The decor was chic and the staff very friendly. I know I was here for the Reebok Skyscapes but I couldn’t help but want to look at everything in the store. The store really takes you in and it made me feel a little special when I walked through the doors.  It felt like a place an active woman would love to be.  But eventually, I got back to the shoes.

The shoes are really really great. As I mentioned before, I haven’t worn Reebok since I was a kid because everyone was wearing those velcro shoes. When this campaign came in my inbox I was a little skeptical but I thought I would give it a try. Once I tried the Skyscape Runaround, I was sold!

“So lightweight and comfortable, you’ll forget you have them on.” And that is the truth. When I tried the shoes on, it was like I was walking on clouds. How light are the shoes? Skyscapes are only 5 ounces! These shoes are super light and flexible. And the Skyscape Runarounds are MACHINE WASHABLE! That is always a plus because that means you can keep wearing them over and over again.

FYI: I loved how they had this station set up so you could try the shoes on without having to see what sizes they were available in and the variety of colors.  I have a large foot and I was worried they wouldn’t come in my size so I was glad to see this when I walked in the store.

I decided on the grey pair because I thought that color was the most neutral. But the Skyscape Chase comes in different colors with a subtle design. I wanted something that I could wear everyday. The shoes are plain which kind of bothered me at first. As I’ve worn them throughout the week though, it doesn’t bother me. Even if it did, the sure comfort of the shoes would make that not matter to me at all.

I’ve been wearing the shoes since I got them and I love them.  I want to buy a pair for my mom who needs good shoes like this for everyday.  It’s a great every day shoe.  And don’t be surprised if you find yourself skipping in random parking lots because they are so light on your feet.

The final verdict:
The shoes are great, reasonable priced at $64.99, and probably the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever put on my foot. I would buy another pair in another color and I think I’m going to have a buy a pair for my mom. I would visit the Six:02 store again for some fitness gear too!

Recovery from the weekend with Pro Compression

Recovery from the weekend with Pro Compression

It was a big weekend because I did my 20 miler on Saturday.  Yesterday was a rest day.  Rest days are important to give your body a recharge.  It may sound funny coming from me because most people don’t think I take a rest, but I know when my body needs a rest.  Always remember to listen to your body. Recovery has been a big deal to me lately and I’ve taken the time to really educate myself on it.  I was doing it wrong for so long.  It’s hard to think about putting the calories back in your body… View Post

The 62 mile bike ride: Year 2

The 62 mile bike ride: Year 2

This was my second year doing the Katy Flatland Century, BUT this was Willie’s first “big boy” bike ride ever. I’ve really wanted him to ride with me but road bikes are expensive. He was kind enough to let me get my bike first. He really wanted to make sure he would love the experience before he dropped that much money on a bike. So we borrowed a bike from our good friends for the occasion. Luckily, Rodale sent me some books on cycling for beginners which we both looked through. Yes, I got my bike last year but I’m… View Post

Embrace the Space: My Altra running shoes

Embrace the Space: My Altra running shoes

I didn’t post yesterday because I guess I was too busy working out.  LOL!  It’s launch week at the gym so it’s always a busy week and I like to try all the new classes too.  Yesterday I taught cycle twice and then I needed to go for a run. It was my first run since the 50K and I felt good. It got me thinking, “maybe it’s the shoes?” I think I should have worn my new shoes to the race on Saturday night. I really think it would have made a difference. A couple of weeks ago I… View Post

My veggetti experience

My veggetti experience

Last week Jes and I purchased the veggetti.  I’d seen the veggetti before but I never remembered to pick it up when I was out.  We saw a commercial for it while we were eating dinner and immediately we went out to purchase one. It was a very exciting moment. I couldn’t wait to try it. So last night I tried it. The veggetti works very easily. Watch your fingers though at some points, but it’s nothing serious. I used zucchini and summer squash. It was on sale this week! It was fast and it left the veggies looking funny.… View Post
