Window shopping may not be high on your to-do list at the moment, given the tighter measures to ensure safe distancing. This is why having a shopping list works better. These are the items that we are intending to either get online or head right in to the retail store – and then grab and go.
Retro chunky sneakers from Skechers
Long-time fans of Skechers may remember its classic “Energy” sneakers, one of the brand’s most iconic styles that was first introduced in 1999.
Skechers has launched new styles of this classic model, featuring wavy-edge layered overlays, metallic heel accents and chunky 1 1/2 inch heel for a retro look that also serves to lengthen your silhouette.
For its solid-colour leather upper, you can select between black and white – both are easy to pair with any getup.
These sneakers are also made with a cushioned comfort insole and supportive shock absorbing midsole, for added comfort.
The new sneaker styles (SGD129) in the Skechers Energy Collection are available at selected Skechers concept stores including Bugis Junction, ION Orchard, NEX, Jurong Point and Jewel Changi Airport. The launch also includes casual apparel adorned with the same classic SKX logo detail.
