Sponsored Advertorial

Hello everyone!!!!! I'm so excited cause I've got alot of pictures and stuff to share with you guys!!! :D


SKECHERS is originated from South California (slang “Energetic Youngsters”) from Manhattan Beach!

And having 21 years of heritage, SKECHERS designs, develops and markets performance shoes for athletes and active individuals, and lifestyle shoes for every age and demographic encompasses more than thousands styles omg!!!

In addition to its heritage lines like SKECHERS Sport, SKECHERS USA, SKECHERS Active, SKECHERS Cali and SKECHERS Kids, the company has broadened its offering with an innovative performance division that includes SKECHERS GO series, and also BOBS, which is a SKECHERS charity footwear brand that donates a new pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair sold! How sweet!

I feel it's really awesome because every pair of shoes you buy, you're like helping a child that is in need at the same time! Also not forgetting that they also have a dynamic collection of kids’ soles known for their wildly fun features and beloved characters!! I've seen the kids collection and it's super cute omg. It lights up!

Anyway, I woke up super early in the morning the other day and head over to SKECHERS Jem for filming with Rachell and it was so fun!!!! We had loads of fun trying on their shoes and I was awed by the variety of selection of shoes they have!

Although I was sleep deprived, the whole day was filled with fun and laughter , and I didn't really feel very tired at all!! Thanks to the SKECHERS team, filming crew and also Rachell for perking me up with so much fun stuff and talks hahaha! Alright! Gonna flood you guys with all the pictures now!!!

With Rachell while we are filming our introduction and keep a look out for our video at the end of the post! Love this shot cause it's candid and we both look very happy here!


Here you have me checking out their shoes!


Another one! Hahahaha!

To be honest, I didn't really know SKECHERS have so many different kinds of footwear that is suitable for various and almost any occasions! I always though SKECHERS are more towards a “sporting” brand, but SKECHERE do have lifestyle footwear too! Bet some of you didn't know too right!


Trying out SKECHERS Men USA sneaker! All of their shoes are super comfortable, seriously!

Leaving SKECHERS Jem and to their showroom to do something exciting! Something to do with designing! Can you guess what are we gonna dooooooooo? :D

Yes we are going to design our very own shoes and I've chosen GOwalk to design because it's light in weight, super comfortable when I try on and also it has my favourite orange colour on it!

Another awesome thing is that, there is alot of space for me to decorate it!!! Can't wait to start!!


Yay getting our hands on to decorate and accessorise our very own SKECHERS shoes!!!!!!!

The top 2 materials that poped in my mind are definitely CRYSTALS and STUDS! I would wanna design something that I would really wear and not just for the sake of designing! It's quite exciting when I know about this, but at the same time, it's also scary because I don't really do DIY alot so I'm kinda worried that it might turn out pretty horrendous lololol!

Trying to keep things simple, so just crystals at the top and some studs at the front/side/back!

typicalben designing shoes 2

Look at my serious face while decorating the shoes hahahaha!

Sticking the crystals on is a more tedious part than doing the studs because it's always very hard to pick and stick them! Also because they are smaller and in different sizes!

And I'm finally gonna complete soon!!!!!!

Sticking on the one last crystals and we are done!!!!!!!!

999595 GYBL (US Size 8)

With the diagonally curved bottom of this light weight athletic shoe, we can then experience the intuitive motion with natural stride technology! It can help correct walking posture too!

I really love this pair of shoes because I find it easy to match and look good with just a simple pair of jeans and a tee shirt! And for me, I'm gonna match it with a colourful graphic tee with jeans!

It's comfortable and perfect for days when we are lazy and just wanna dress down and wear a pair of slippers to nearby places! And this slippers also comes in black colour too!

I'm so gonna match it with a simple black shorts and a tee shirt! Just like how many of us would dress to nearby places or if you're feeling lazy and just wanna wear comfortably out!

63610 SDNT (US Size 8)

It is distressed oiled leather upper in a lace up casual dress mid high top oxford with stitching and overlay accents! Nice right! My friends (girls) also always buy this kind of men's shoes to wear too!

Actually I feel it can be matched and pair with either jeans or shorts but for myself, I always like to pair this kind of high cut shoes with shorts but it also goes very well with long pants too! I think it can match well with both!
