Reebok Skyscape Launch Party + a giveaway- ENDED

Hi guys! This post is sponsored by Fitfluential LLC on behalf of Reebok. Of course, all opinions are my own. I’m thankful for this wonderful opportunity to travel to NYC and enjoy the launch party with blog friends <3

Skyscapes 1 of 1

The main reason of our trip to NYC was to represent Fitfluential at the launch of Reebok‘s new casual everyday shoe: Skyscapes. I’ve been super stoked about the release of these sneakers. Remember when I went to Boston with Reebok? We were asked to pick our favorite shoe on an entire wall of up-and-coming styles. My easy choice: Skyscapes! I held the shoe up and told everyone that they were my favorites because they were super light, available in fun colors and prints, and could easily translate from the gym to errands with a pair of jeans or cotton casual dress.

This week, the Skyscapes are officially available; Reebok celebrated the launch with a party at their Fit Hub. When we walked into the Hub, we were surprised that it was hot and steamy inside. Apparently a hot yoga class had just finished up (<– they use their hubs as retail stores and the opportunity to provide community fitness classes). The room was adorned with fresh flowers, yoga mats were in the center ready to go, beverages and breakfast appetizers were available. It was a beautiful setup and perfectly embodied the spirit of the shoe: light and airy, like walking on a cloud.

Since she’s the official spokesmodel for Skyscape, MIRANDA KERR WAS THERE. She was absolutely gorgeous (of course) and totally down-to-earth.

We were also treated to a Ballet Beautiful class, taught by Mary Helen Bowers, who created the workout format. Mary Helen danced with the New York City Ballet Company for 10 years and is also credited with training Natalie Portman for her role in Black Swan. I absolutely loved experiencing the Ballet Beautiful. The shortened class was about 20 minutes, split between floor work (core, obliques, glutes, inner and outer thighs) and standing work (more glutes, quads and calves). It was similar to a barre workout, sans the barre, with fluid movements. They offer online classes, which I can’t wait to check out.

We were able to chat with Mary Helen Bowers, who was extremely knowledgable and fun. I asked her for her top three fitness/healthy living tips to share with you all, and here’s what she had to say:

1) Make time for yourself, even if it’s just a little, every day. Every little bit truly adds up, so even if it’s just 10 or 15 minutes, it still counts towards achieving your goals.

2) Don’t view your workouts as a punishment. They should be something that you enjoy and that you look forward to! She said that it’s a little bit of luxury to take care of yourself every day. 

3) Focus on rest, water and eating well. Your workout should be a part of that. When you take care of yourself, you look better, feel better and are happier.

I like the fact that she emphasized the importance of balance in a fitness routine. She doesn’t believe in doing a ton of cardio, but creating a mix of strength, moderate cardio and flexibility.

We also got the chance to talk to Miranda Kerr. She was a blast to talk to -we actually ended up talking about babies and labor for quite a while before we went into fitness stuff- and we all noticed that she was especially engaging during the fitness class portion. She would interject with tips on how she uses the exercises in her own routine and how she fits fitness into her busy schedule. She’s a big fan of dancing around with her three-year-old little guy, rebounding, yoga and Pilates. She had a great tip about using planks for a 10-minute total body workout: turn on some great music and plank (with variations) for 10 minutes. Rest as you need to. I’ll definitely give it a try!

Needless to say, it was an amazing event <3

The Skyscapes in action with some style variations:

A little bit of info about the new sneaks:

-They were designed with the 23 hours hours in mind that you don’t spend working out: to and from the gym, running errands, hanging out, etc. 

-They were designed to feel “so comfortable you forget you have them on,” which is easy to do since they’re so lightweight. Skyscapes are an awesome traveling shoe because they’re so light. At only five ounces, you can toss them in your suitcase without having to worry about extra weight or bulk.

-The upper portion is made out of a soft two-way stretch material (similar to bra material) with cloud-like pillows on the sole. They machine wash beautifully, and the seamless style keeps them from irritating or digging into your foot. (Tip: if you’re going to wash these in the machine, make sure to take the insole and laces out before hand. You can wash the insole separately, and then let the parts air dry before reassembling them.) I’ve washed mine twice already 

-The Skyspring technology helps to support the foot and provide all-day comfort. We walked around NYC for a few hours after the event, and I was so glad I was wearing these shoes. Very comfortable the entire time.

To celebrate the launch of the Skyscape, how ’bout a little giveaway? This portion of the post is sponsored by Caroline, as she wanted to share the Skyscape love with a lucky reader.

    I would love the pink ones!! I need new sneaks so bad! I bought a pair 2 weeks ago and the sole became unglued! Needless to say they were returned. Having these sneakers would be awesome! Also Miranda Kerr sounds amazing!

  2. Julie on March 14, 2014 at 12:41 am

    I would love the gray ones! I am a personal trainer in NZ currently but I have almost run down my cross trainer shoes. I haven’t tried a feather light shoe and would love to be able to teach and go out in them afterwards.

  3. debbie on March 14, 2014 at 1:01 am

    I’d love to rock the pink ones! Perfect to wear this spring and summer, instead of my uggs and snow boots i’ve worn this whole winter! πŸ˜€

  4. Melissa on March 14, 2014 at 1:02 am

    Loving the Purple Vibe pair. And I would wear these when the nice weather finally comes (to will happen eventually right?) and I actually get to go to the park to walk.

  5. Raquel on March 14, 2014 at 1:04 am

    I’d pick the grey ones…they’re so cute!

  6. Madison (Pointy Toe Shoe Crew) on March 14, 2014 at 1:05 am

    Love these! I’d especially love the pink, although the lavender is also beautiful. I think these would make great shoes for work since I am on my feet all day in a hospital but also like to get in a workout on my lunch break.

  7. Kelster on March 14, 2014 at 1:16 am

    I’m torn between the pink and purple. I think purple would win.

  8. Samara on March 14, 2014 at 1:21 am

    Gotta go pink! From the daycare walk, to the walk to work, then at work, running to gym at lunch, finally to the walk with the bubbas home. I find wearing my usual gym shoes makes my feet hot and confined, when I end up wearing them too long. but I need to as I am always ‘kinda’ exercising with these kiddies around!

  9. Elina on March 14, 2014 at 2:25 am

    PINK! The cutest πŸ˜€

  10. Pua on March 14, 2014 at 2:38 am

    Pink!! I love those tips, btw. I’ll have to remember them, especially when I’m groaning over a workout. πŸ™‚

  11. Nadia on March 14, 2014 at 2:40 am

    Great πŸ™‚ the yellow and orange ones World fit perfectly to my workout cloth!

  12. Nadia on March 14, 2014 at 2:44 am

    UPS sorry got confused with the colours in the first picture… Pink is great!

  13. Annie on March 14, 2014 at 3:04 am

    Purple camo!! I’m so excited about these shoes. I want to try them for barefoot/minimalist running. Do you thnk they would work? I usually wear converse even for long distances.

  14. Maddy on March 14, 2014 at 5:06 am

    The camo ones are adorable!

  15. Lisa on March 14, 2014 at 6:16 am

    I would rock those camo ones!!! Such a great opportunity you had, and well deserved!!!

  17. Cate on March 14, 2014 at 6:27 am

    Love the grey. It is a little different than anything I have, and it would match everything.

    Thanks, Caroline. I love that picture of you!

  18. Danielle @ It's a Harleyyy Life on March 14, 2014 at 6:32 am

  21. Sarah on March 14, 2014 at 6:55 am

    I would wear the flat grey / chalk ones! While they don’t really pop like the other colors, they would go with almost everything in my closet!

  22. Liz on March 14, 2014 at 6:57 am

    I’d love a pair of the black sneaks! These look so cute and comfy.

  23. Britt on March 14, 2014 at 7:07 am

  30. Kim on March 14, 2014 at 8:53 am

    I would probably pick the grey ones – they’re so versatile and would match with everything! They sound like the perfect shoe to save my feet after a day wearing heels to work πŸ™‚

  31. Barbara on March 14, 2014 at 8:55 am

    I would choose the grey pair, they are so cute and would match most of my workout gear!

    I would love the black ones! I’d wear them for working out and running errands!!

  33. Alyssa on March 14, 2014 at 9:13 am

    I’m torn between the black/victory pink and the pink fusion. Both look so fun and super comfy!!

  34. Janet on March 14, 2014 at 9:16 am

    These look great! I would pick grey. I’m a teacher and I would love to wear these to school!

  35. Jennifer on March 14, 2014 at 9:20 am

    So hard to choose! I really love them all but need a fun pair for spring so I’ll go with purple. Thanks for offering this giveaway Gina!

  36. Beth on March 14, 2014 at 9:25 am

  37. Ang @ Nutty for Life on March 14, 2014 at 9:32 am

    I love the grey skyscapes! They would really go so well with a lot of casual spring outfits. The event look super cool, too. Gotta love the #cloudpants

    Love the grey ones!! Super cute and neutral enough to wear with anything!!

  41. Sharon Kiellach on March 14, 2014 at 10:01 am

    Love the lighter pink ones. Going to Hawaii in April and these would be a “kick” to wear.

  42. Kaleigh Forbus on March 14, 2014 at 10:16 am

    I would definitely pick the hot pink ones. A girl can never have too many pink shoes.

  43. Kate D. on March 14, 2014 at 10:21 am

    I like the purple and the gray ones. I think they both would be cute to wear with leggings or a casual dress and jacket.

  44. Karen on March 14, 2014 at 10:22 am

    I think I’d go with the Purple Vibe ones. I don’t have anything that color and it would be great for spring!

  45. Katie M on March 14, 2014 at 10:39 am

    I would really like the purple vibe ones! So cute!

  46. Lori on March 14, 2014 at 10:45 am

    I think the lavender ones are too cute!

  48. Genn on March 14, 2014 at 11:11 am

    That looks like so much fun!!! I love, love, love the purple color shoe!

  49. Kirsten on March 14, 2014 at 11:13 am

    They’re all so cute! I would totally rock the purple (or pink, or grey … ) while chasing my little one all the live long day πŸ™‚

  50. Kathy on March 14, 2014 at 11:21 am

    For sure purple! I’ve moved from pink to purple and seem to be drawn to purple in all my fitness and non-fitness clothing choices for a while now.

    I’d love these because I’m working from home now and it is LOTS of sitting if I don’t purposely do something about that. So I’ve set a timer for 45 minutes and every time it goes off I jump in to something active for 10 minutes (unless I’m on a conf call or something.)

    My current list includes: around the block with the pup, rebounder, yoga, small segments of various Chalene dvds, small segments of dance dvd’s including Solibeat (of course) and LaBlast (getting ready for DWTS to start) or a Turbulence Training workout. As it warms up, more outside choices will be added. These shoes would be PERFECT for my Work – Boost – Work plan!!
