The Incredible Flexible Washable Reebok Skyscape

reebok skyscapeReebok Skyscape

Reebok did it again! They came out with the cutest, lightest (5 OUNCE!) , seamless, super comfy and totally machine washable (DID YOU HEAR ME???? I SAAAID MACHINE WASHABLE!!! how COOL is THAT?!) tennis shoe, perfect for daily wear! It’s call the Reebok Skyscape.

Sometimes you just want a cute minimal shoe that is cozy but doesn’t look like an athletic shoe for those days you want to be comfy but you don’t want to look like you are going for a run. If this is YOU, then you might want to try out this cool new pair of kicks.

The material is wild! It’s smooth, soft and stretchy material makes this shoe like nothing else I’ve ever put on my foot. Plus, it has a pillowy tongue with extra cushion so tight laces don’t cut off circulation or irritate the top of your foot. Basically, comfy was their focus and they nailed it. I wore it to work yesterday, knowing I was going to have to stand on my feet for several hours straight, and they didn’t let me down.

Check ’em out!

What’s Black and Blue, and Knobby all Over? The Newest, Toughest, Craziest Shoe to Hit the Ground

If you own a truck or a jeep, and you want to go in the mud, you put big knobby tires on it. So, why not put big knobby tread on your feet? Right? Well, that’s what Reebok is saying – and I’m digging it!

Reebok ATV 19+

Reebok ATV 19+I was checking out the new ATV 19+ all-terrain tennis shoe from Reebok and saw this video (below) with MMA fighter, Rampage Jackson (who also played Mr. T in the movie remake of the A-Team). I have to admit, Reebok surprised me by using one of the toughest fighters to launch this new futuristic looking shoe. But, hey, I guess a tough guy for a tough shoe does make sense. But an even bigger surprise was their humorous approach to market this shoe.

Instead of going with the traditional serious “I’m a tough athlete who trains harder than you” approach, showing a celeb athlete do things we can’t even do in our dreams (much less real life), they took the fun approach – and it was totally refreshing. Way to go Reebok for making fitness fun. Thank you Rampage (and “rock boy”) for giving us a laugh. Good stuff! 🙂

I look forward to trying out this shoe! While the big lugs look a bit crazy, I’m just a little crazy too! Mud, gravel, rain, snow, grass, rocks, sand, woods –  here I come!

What do you think? Would you wear this shoe? 

How Flexible Are Your Tennis Shoes?

trip-to-bard-029This is what I think of when I think of jeans and tennis shoes. Sorta nerdy and less than fashionable. With that said, over the last 20 years of being in the fitness industry, I have NEVER been seen out shopping in tennis shoes. I’ve always worn tennis shoes to the gym and regular “girlie” shoes  when dressed in regular clothes. I’ve never liked the way tennis shoes looked with jeans, and I never thought tennis shoes looked nice with regular clothes – that is, until now. Reebok Realflex shoes are not just flexible in function, they are flexible in style.

realflexThe thinner, lighter material keeps this shoe streamlined and less bulky than a traditional tennis shoe. So, even when I’m wearing jeans, the cute little toe box looks nice poking out the bottom of my jeans. Since the colors are fun an colorful, they keep my outfits stylish, unlike many drab tennies that make you look like a tourist (’cause that’s how tourists dress around here in Florida).

This may not be that newsworthy to you, but to me – it is totally new and exciting. Finally I can dress comfortable without compromising style. Plus, I make the most out of my tennis shoes because they are not restricted for gym use only. So, if you buy right, you get more bang for your buck – and more fun too!

Here’s how I’ve been wearing my shoes lately…

Realflex Goes Shopping

Here are my feetsies surrounded by shopping bags as I was putting everything in my trunk. My Realflex shoes were my shoe of choice for every Christmas shopping trip I went on – and I got compliments on my shoes every where I went! Seriously, I wore a bright orange long sleeve shirt that said “Eat Clean, Train Dirty”, jean shorts and these orange and granite Realflex shoes – and people literally stopped me to tell me they loved my shoes. I even had an older gentleman pay me the sweetest compliment while shopping at Dillards. So, you see, you don’t have to “dress up” to be dressed nice.

Realflex Takes Flight

My Realflex shoes were also my choice of shoe for flying. I NEVER dress sloppy when flying. I typically compromise comfort for style, even when dragging  luggage through the airport. This time I wore a cute sweat shirt with pink on it over a lime green spagetti strap sports bra with Miss Me Jeans and my Pink & Green tennies to match- and I was comfy but not sloppy.

Here is the picture of my shoes taking a ride through security with one of my favorite purses. 🙂

Realflex Goes Wild

I wore my Realflexes to the Busch Sanctuary, where My family and I enjoyed a private tour and got to pet and feed the animals. Before Realflex, I would have probably worn flip flops over tennis shoes. Now my tennis shoes are just as much an accessory as my crazy lightening bolt knee high socks (Steve gave me for Christmas). Yes, tennis shoes are more practical and comfortable than flip flops, but now they can also be a fashion statement with all the fun color combinations they offer.

I’m not a fashion guru or anything, but I do want to look nice – and finally, I can dress both comfortably and fashionably all at once!
