Skechers ProSpeed Launches in the Philippines

One of the brands that you’d probably least think when it comes to running shoes is Skechers, but to prove that they are serious to their commitment to fitness, Skechers recently launched their ProSpeed line to the Philippine market.

From Skechers:

Skechers, the second largest footwear brand in the US recently hosted an exclusive fitness training session at the Skechers Market! Market! to announce the fast tracking of its fitness campaign by introducing Chinggay Andrada, one of the trainers in the Biggest Loser Philippines show and a certified professional fitness expert as Skechers fitness spokesperson; and the introduction of a new kind of lightweight running shoe from Skechers for active enthusiasts and serious athletes – the Skechers ProSpeed SRR.

Chinggay Andrada spoke about her advocacy of leading people to a healthier lifestyle through exercise. Attendees were first made to try out the Skechers ProSpeed SRR on the treadmills prior to the exclusive fitness training session led by Andrada herself.

“I want to share with the people my love for exercise that has led me to pursue a career in fitness,” said Andrada.

She further said: “It is quite a welcome blessing that Skechers, a brand that has made inroads in fitness shoes because of its development of Shape-ups, shares in my advocacy of helping people lead a more active lifestyle.”

As running has become a national pastime in the Philippines, weekend warriors who used to jog around Greenhills and then find themselves in surrounding coffee shops after their run, now find themselves in the streets of Bonifacio Global City or the paved roads around Mall of Asia in sponsored Sunday runs.

This resurgence in running, together with Skechers advocacy of helping people shape-up has led to the introduction of the Skechers ProSpeed SRR in the Philippines.

Katrina Ong, Marketing Communications Officer of Skechers said: “This new footwear technology by Skechers will greatly help in getting more Filipinos to run more comfortably and efficiently whether they’re taking on their first 3K or training for a marathon.”

The ProSpeed SRR features the patented Smart Shoe™ Technology, the rocker-bottom that guides runners into mid-foot strike position.  This mid-foot strike design transforms the energy of impact, through the Kinetic Return System, into forward motion with every stride.

“The shoes literally give runners a spring in their step as they feel a distinctive bounce forward upon toe-off or push off,” Ong adds.

The Skechers ProSpeed SRR is also lightweight due to the Resalyte™ cushioning with memory retention that reduces impact for a supported, comfortable ride during runs.  Each ProSpeed comes in just under 10oz per shoe depending on the size.
