One of our favourite things to do on the weekend is spend our afternoons hiking or running errands together. These are obviously two very different tasks at hand. Considering we are on our feet most of the day during the weekends though we also require comfy shoes. Although my go to shoes are usually flats or sandals, these are seriously not the best option when running errands in the city or hiking the great outdoors. Kamiran and I were actually able to find the perfect pair of sneakers that combines both the comfort of the athletic aspect of our lives aka hiking, but also something that would accommodate my need to look stylish while walking around in the city. The sneakers I am talking about is SKYE footwear.
SKYE Footwear Style Options
I went with The Lons design in the grey shade. Nothing makes you feel as urban and city chic as a pair of The Lons does. I chose this pair because of how sleek and classy it looked. I usually gravitate away from your typical lace up sneakers just because certain styles look very athletic, and I am more of an athleisure kind of gal. The SKYE loafer sneaker, is considered a marine style and perfect for anyone that loves casual strolls in the city, top-decks or even a fun day at the beach. I actually find they are perfect for hiking too though. I didn’t find my feet to get uncomfortable at all during our hike. Kamiran went with the The Rbutus in black. This is an ultra-soft runner style sneaker designed for those that are always on the go and love outdoor activities like hiking, biking or doing a little bit of a power walk.
What I love about SKYE footwear is the fact that they are unisex shoes! I found the sizes to run a little bigger than my usual size. I would suggest you decide carefully which size you order. I usually wear an 8.5 but I went for a 7.5 instead. The 8.5 was too big for me. I could have definitely went with the 8.5 since with a thick pair socks it would have fit fine, but I actually wear most of my sneakers without socks so that would not have worked.
What makes SKYE Footwear so Special?
SKYE Footwear products have a unique Loop-Lok laceless hold inspired which I absolutely love. You definitely do not need a pair of heels to feel confident. The Loop-Lok style is what makes the shoes so chic and perfect for running errands around the city while maintaining your sense of style. Maybe I am a bit bias, but I absolutely love the way the SKYE sneakers looked with my skinny jeans. I felt so cool and chic.
What Materials Are Used to Manufacture the shoes?
What is even cooler is that the sole and the insole of each shoe is biodegradable. With the changes of our environment and the tremendous amounts of waste we are putting into our environment I am always relived when I hear of new brands looking for ways to make products that are sustainable and decrease the pollution of our environment.SKYE sneakers are mostly made from recycled materials and they come with a foam rubber outsole and a built-in deep gel insole. I took a look myself and you can actually remove the insole as well, although I do not recommend you do that.
Is SKYE Footwear the Right Choice for you?
If you are looking for sneakers that are comfortable, affordable and are also environmentally conscious then SKYE Footwear is the perfect choice for you. Also if style matters to you like me, these sneakers will take your everyday style to a whole new level
