Putting Some Spring to Our Step With Skechers

I’m no meteorologist, but I am here to proclaim winter 2018 the longest. winter. ever.

Winter lasted even longer than what I subjectively proclaim to be the longest pregnancy ever. My son had to wear winter boots so long he outgrew the pair he started the season with! My husband normally walks 45 minutes to work, but he found himself needing to take the bus due to excessive snow or ice (or both) many times in January and February.

Thankfully, it is finally … FINALLY … spring. And the Cub Twins are finally here! And their big brother can finally wear his new Skechers!

The first time he wore his Hydrus Modern Z sneakers was to visit me in the hospital where I was hanging out for my second false alarm, and he was so proud. Then it snowed a ton more and they were relegated back to the closet.

Now he wears them every day, in a whopping size 13. (When did he get so big?!) And with the weather finally being fabulous, we are walking to and from his school bus with his baby brothers.

Cub also has a pair of Kinectors Megahertz runners … and they are his first shoes with LACES!

Why I chose lace-up shoes for him when he suffers from learned helplessness and I have newborn twins I will never know. Well, probably because they look SO COOL! If someone would like to teach my son to tie shoelaces, that would be great.

Luckily, Papa Wolf CAN tie his own shoes! His new footwear is all about comfort and durability. One of the ways we have been saving money since learning we were having twins is by skipping his monthly bus pass.

Walking the 9 km round trip to work each day is also a way for him to get exercise without taking extra time out of our insane schedule to go to the gym. (He has to work off all his sympathy pregnancy weight!)

His last pair of shoes were designed more for indoor exercise rather than hitting the pavement, so they got holes in the soles. His Afterburn Memory Fit and Metro Track Skechers are both stylish (because his wife cares about that) and durable.

Having been cooped up this winter taking care of a very pregnant wife and mother, it’s time for my boys to get outside and enjoy a long-awaited spring … with an added spring in their steps thanks to Skechers.

    And the new Skechers would be mine. My Hostel Mary Jane Archers have holes after a long active life on my feet. I am replacing them with the exact same shoes because they are the most comfortable dressy shoe I have ever owned.
