Girl On The Go

Monday, April 21, 2014


And it's above 70 degrees yet again today. You can't tell it from this photo, but Chicago is starting to turn green. Tulips are bursting from the ground and buds are starting to pop on the trees. It's just a matter of time before this city looks good again!

Anyway, the other day I was thinking about how one of my favorite things about living in Chicago is the fact that it's a walking city. I absolutely love that I can go weeks and weeks without ever getting in my car. When it's nice outside I run almost every errand by foot or on my bike. I love than I can get groceries, or grab my dry cleaning, or run by Walgreens and it's all within a half mile or so of where I live. Most times I don't even consider getting in a car to run errands unless I have to go somewhere really far away. And the funny thing is I never thought I'd be the type of person to like living in a city where I walk everywhere. Before I moved here I was the lazy girl who complained if I didn't get a front row parking spot at Target. Now I'm just thrilled if I don't have to walk more than thirty minutes to go somewhere.

And of course there's also that four-legged little guy who insists on going on at least ten walks a day. In the summer he needs at least twenty... And that's why I don't join a gym.

The only downfall is finding shoes that are comfortable enough to walk in for miles and miles on any given day. And I'm not the type to wear sneakers with jeans because it makes me feel like a huge fourth grader so I just won't do it. That is until I was given the opportunity to partner with Reebok and I was introduced to their new line of shoes, the Reebok Skyscape. And now I'm obsessed. They are truly the lightest things I have ever put on my feet (only 5 ounces!). They are perfect to just slip on when I'm heading out the door to run one of the millions of errands I seem to go on every day.


And of course I love the fact that they don't look like your average sneaker. Not only are they insanely comfortable, they're also pretty cute and stylish. That's a total win/win when you're doing as much walking as I do every day.

The best part is Reebok is giving one of you the chance to win a YourReebok Custom Card which you will use to design your own pair of Skyscapes! To enter, just leave a comment telling me where you'd wear your new Skyscapes.

  6. I think it would be so fun to live in a "walking city" like that! We are finally getting nicer weather and turning green here, too. About damn time.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Working in downtown Philly, I walk all the time at lunch.

    Is that a dog poop bag in your hand in the last shot? I am dying laughing. I can't tell you how many photos I have with me and a dog poop bag in my hand.

  8. I'd wear them to take my new baby on walks everyday while I try to shed this baby weight.

  9. I would wear them all over town all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I would wear them all around where I live now in Atlanta. My neighborhood is pretty walking friendly. Plus, I'll be moving to Chicago soon and now I know I'd wear them there too!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I would wear them everywhere! I'm starting school soon and would need them to walk all over campus and still look cute.

  18. I totally agree about living in a walking city!!! One of the best things about Boston too!!

  19. I would wear them walking all around campus. That's one if the biggest things that scares me about our possible move to Chicago, it's a walking city. I grew up in the suburbs, we drive everywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Even not living in a "city city", I'd wear those babies walking the dog - b/c mine likes 20+ walks a day too...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jigga WHAT. I'd love to have these - I'm an avid outdoorsy person here in NJ and I'd definitely be hiking around in these all spring, summer, and fall. I like these especially because they are supportive (I HATE flimsy shoes) and cute at the same time. No looking like a hooters' waitress here. I mean from the knees down, obviously. Those 80s shoes and slouch socks have GOT TO GO.

    This just took a turn for the awkward.

    Again.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm visiting a girlfriend who lives in Washington, DC in a few weeks and these would look perfect for strolling around the city!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would wear them everyday! I like to go on walks with my little lady down to the park (about 2 miles one way, I take a couple laps in before she plays). I am big on walking but not so big on looking like a fourth grader while doing it ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I walk to and from work daily - rain or shine, south loop to the merchandise mart. I was hoping the easter bunny would give me some cute new shoes but all he brought was a hangover and a lot of family time. wasn't sure where to start for new kicks and then i stumbled upon this post... love the blog, love the shoes! hand 'em over!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would wear them on a couple of trips I have coming up! They look cute and comfortable so I could definitely walk around in them all day long! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would love these to walk around with my little one. I agree, I dislike wearing traditional sneakers with jeans... these would be a great alternative!

    ReplyDelete

  40. So glad to here it's wearing up in Chicago. I really hope some day to live in a walking city. I wish I had thought about living closer to downtown Nashville instead of the suburbs. It would be so fun to walk to restaurants and even to the dog park. And that's my tip for dogs...dog parks. We take our dog every weekend and after 30 minutes he is in a puppy coma for 2 days.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'd wear the sneaks to Disney. Since I live near Orlando, I go to the parks quite often and I always wear sneakers.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Perfect weight for me to wear to work in the hospital!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ahh! I'd love to wear these to all my photo sessions this summer!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  44. Those sneakers are adorable! You're right they are so fashionable they don't look like just any old sneaker. I also have a pup who enjoys her outdoor time and I feel like those would be perfect for our daily walks to the park.

  45. Just like you, I'd wear them out walking my dog around town.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'd wear them for our upcoming move to Europe--cute enough for those stylish European streets, yet comfortable!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I cannot get enough sneakers, but I agree with you.... I will not wear them with jeans. These are the exception!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'd wear my Reebok Skyscapes out running errands (like you do), to a baseball game, for a day of shopping...the possibilities are endless :)
