Skechers Performance Division Breast Cancer Awareness
Pink is everywhere from school posters to the NFL, from restaurants to car washes. I love to see the country come together on a united cause. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and it is hard to miss. I’ve never met a person that doesn’t have a connection to Breast Cancer in some shape or form. It could be themselves or a dear friend. A family member or a friend of the family. I have known three people that I close to that have dealt with Breast Cancer.
My grandmother passed from breast cancer in 1991. I found out in 2004 that my best friends mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. I knew her mother well of course since I was always at her house during high school. I also found out that a co-worker and good friend of mine had battled breast cancer prior to my knowing her. She is a tough cookie and continued to work. Both my co-worker and best friend’s mom beat the disease.
Skechers is supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month with some cute and charitable new line of shoes.

I was asked if I would like to review a pair of the new shoes and knew I would love to adorn my feet with the pink! It was a hard choice I love the look of the Skechers GOrun Sprint. In the end I decided to go with the Skechers GOwalk 2 for their unique look.
I love the feel of the shoe is it almost like wearing slippers. They are super light but full of soft cushion in the inside. Perfect for a walk! My employer and a bunch of co-workers will be walking in a local Breast Cancer Awareness walk and these shoes would be perfect. Just a note they do seem to run a little big as I got the size I usually do and they are a little loose. With your purchase a pair of the limited-edition awareness shoes Skechers Performance Division Skechers Retail stores are offering a gift with your purchase. The gift will be either a breast canvas awareness canvas tote back or a pink water bottle.
Skechers Performance Division proudly supports American Cancer Society in the fight against breast cancer with a special collection of products. Designed with our innovative performance materials and technologies, each shoe celebrates those who use sports and fitness to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.
