This one’s for the boys. Not only do I have a super-cool SKECHERS Men’s Relaxed Fit giveaway coming up… but this post also marks my husband’s debut as a blog model. (Back off Ford Models, he’s in a contract to only appear on Listen to Lena. Hahaha!)
All kidding aside, I really do need to thank my husband for being such a good sport. You see, earlier this summer, we received SKECHERS Relaxed Fit: Diamondback – Leroy shoes in Olive, Navy and Natural for review. The shoes feature a soft faded canvas fabric and suede uppers, in a lace-up casual boat-style with stitching and overlay accents.
They instantly became my husband’s favourite shoes for just about all casual activities. And, since he had a choice of three different colours to complement his summer wardrobe, he always looked fabulous :)
But what makes a shoe “relaxed”? SKECHERS Relaxed Fit shoes have a roomy comfort fit that is more forgiving for men with wide feet or a flattened arch. They feature a Memory Foam-topped cushioned insole and shock absorbing midsole for increased comfort, especially for all-day wear. The Leroy shoe boasts a vulcanized rubber midsole with contrast stripe, in addition to a flexible rubber traction outsole with a diamond pattern design.
Says my husband: “I really like that they look great with jeans or shorts; with socks or without. They’ve got that ‘sailboat shoe look’ with the laced side accents and metal eyelets, which is both trendy and classic at the same time. The navy is more of a black-blue so it’s just the right shade to wear with khakis or denim, and they’re artfully faded for a worn-in look. Overall they’ve become my go-to shoe for warm weather.”
(Er… did I mention my husband is a metrosexual?)
Of course, talk is cheap – here he is modelling his favourite summer kicks:
He insisted on posing with his BBQ. After all, he may be a metrosexual, but he’s still a man….
