Last August 8, a very intimate media and bloggers gathering was held at Quest Hotel for the unveiling of the hottest pairs of shoes from the leading global footwear brands, Sperry, Keds, Saucony, Skechers and Merrel.
What I truly love about these brands is that their footwear collections are classic and timeless. They also make sure that each pair of shoes that they create is stylish and in-trend without sacrificing comfort and performance.
From classic and timeless boat shoes inspired by the ocean, Sperry continues to innovate with footwear collections that are perfect for every lifestyle. The latest collection of Sperry footwear includes Sperry 7 Seas Carbon for rugged outdoors, Sperry Flooded Pack for a monochromatic look, Authentic Original 2-Eye Color Sole Collection for a dash of fun and color to their classic boat shoes, and the Sperry Classic CVO for a timeless staple perfect for a relaxed weekender.
This season, Skechers level up their footwear collection with stylish and performance upgrades, starting off with Skechknit featuring soft woven sporty knit fabric upper. Add a knitted pair to any denim ensemble to elevate your look. Skechers also upgraded their Go Run series to make runners run faster because of its patented M-Strike (mid-foot strike) technology.
The No.1 Walking Shoe in the US also got an upgrade. The latest collection of Skechers Gowalk features Gogamax insoles for cushion and bounce, 5GEN midsole material for energy return, and Goga Pillars for stability and shock absorption, making walking literally effortless.
Skechers also introduced their latest collection for your little ones. Let your kids have fun with Skechers Kids sparkly and lighted shoes that will surely brighten up their days. Skechers also share the fun and comfort with babies and toddlers with shoes featuring Memory Foam insoles and easy on, easy off closures.
Keds Fall 2017 collection is ready to make a splash with weatherized footwear staples. The collection includes footwear created with water and stain repellents, traction treads, and all-season materials, as well as Scotchgard technology. Keds will also elevate your style with their high-top and triple sneakers that will not only add height, but also increases style points of your entire look. Meanwhile, the iconic Keds White Champion is getting a comfort upgrade buy adding an Ortholite footbed and Keds Court Classics was re imagined with a feminine touch.
The Saucony brand is really popular with runners and Marl Pack collection is getting a new lineup featuring a sleek grey palette which is perfect for whatever the day, or the road throws at you, while the Saucony Heathered Chroma Pack is getting an upgrade with a soft heathered material and chroma reflective detailing. Saucony also fuses performance and style with their new LITEFORM series. These shoes combine lightweight uppers with highly flexible and cushioned soles.
My favorite from their latest collection are the Jazz Originals which combines comfort and style. The collection features heathered jersey upper and a shock-absorbing striped EVA midsole.
Merrell is one of the go-to brands when it comes to outdoors. This season, Merrell released a new version of the favorite lifestyle pair, the Merrell 1SIX8 AC+, which features the signature Merrell Air Cushion+, breathable mesh, and an EVA contoured footbed. The hiker favorite Moab 2 was also revamped with a roomy toe box, snug heel, and precise instep for added support.
We all need a trusty bag when we go outdoors. Merrell’s bag collection is perfect for city streets, mountain trails, or weekend getaways.
The latest collection of Sperry, Skechers, Saucony, Keds and Merrell are now available nationwide.
