Sometimes all it takes is a new pair of shoes, you know what I mean? Reebok sent me a pair of their new SkyScape Runaround shoes and they inspired me to sew some activewear! Usually new shoes inspire me to do something, whether that is working out or sewing something new. This shoe is kinda the perfect in-between shoe. It works for working out and it works for running around doing errands and things. When I used to work and hit the gym after, I always needed a pair of shoes just like this, one that would transition with me. They are great for my busy lifestyle now because I can go walking and then (fabric) shopping and not look like I was just working out.

They are super comfy and you really forget you even have them on! I find myself wearing them around the house just because they’re so comfy. They only weigh 5 ounces and they aren’t bulky. I haven’t tried washing them yet, but they are machine washable, which is convenient.

The thing I love most about these shoes are the colors! Aqua pink and black….love! They came with two sets of laces , black and bright pink. I put in the pink ones, but I might do a double laces thing with the black ones also. Bright laces are just so fun and I can’t get over the secret aqua insides. These are made with the same type of material that bras are made with, that spongy material. It feels like my feet are getting a hug! Seriously comfortable.

I found some great knit fabric at a local store that was perfect for a workout hoodie to go with them. Originally I was looking for a pink to match but I’m just a sucker for purple. And the fabric is really nice, a spandex cotton. Activewear is something I’ve never sewn before so it was fun to give it a try. I designed the hoodie with a super big hood that is easy to get on when it starts to downpour. That was probably inspired by last week when I went out walking with a friend and we got soaked 10 minutes in. Easy access rain protection. The neckline is kinda low, meant to be worn with a tank or something underneath.

I still want to add a pocket to the hoodie. Or maybe two side pockets?! I’ll keep you updated.

I thought a little bow at the neckline would be a cute unexpected detail. Workout gear isn’t always cute, but the Reebok Skyscapes are so cute because of all the color options. The shape is just nice and streamlined as well. I had to update the rest of my workout look to match!


You can customize your own SkyScapes with different patterns and colors. I made some leopard and light blue ones. You can customize everything on this shoe and even personalize it with your name! These say “KATE” down in the right hand corner of this photo below. I didn’t know what to write, maybe I’d put some motivation words instead of my name if I really thought about it.

  59. Torrie says

    Those sneakers are adorable!! I don’t do a whole lot of working out, but cute runners for doing errands and such are a must. Mine are getting pretty old – a cute pair of these would be a nice replacement ;) Thanks for the great giveaway! And your hoodie turned out so cute – I love the bow!

  60. Brenda says

    I would love to try these shoes. I have a very narrow foot, and I really like the fact that the laces can be tightened and that the top of the shoe runs high upon the foot.

  61. Marti says

    I need some new sneakers and having a pair just for me, perfect! Thanks for the chance to win.

  62. Megan says

    I’d love to win these shoes. I’ve been exercising regularly for about a month now and a new pair of shoes to do it in would be awesome!

  64. Christi P says

    I left my Nike Free shoes at a quilting retreat and haven’t replaced them yet.
    This review is making me think these would be a good replacement! Mine were black with hot pink too! Once you wear the lightweight tennis shoes it is hard to wear the big bulky ones again! I feel like I am wearing weights on my feet! Can’t wait to try them on!!

  65. Amanda Sakovitz says

    These are so cute! I love all the different colors!

  66. Shalise Hansen says

    So cute! I love all of the different options.

  68. Jessica says

    Your hoodie is adorable and those shoes aren’t half-bad! :)

  69. says

    You’re right, that sweet little bow adds just enough to make it extra special. The shoes are great – I mean, who wouldn’t want to run like the wind with those leopard spot shoes! Reebok makes great quality products, too, so you know there’s backbone to the shoes, too.

  70. Connie Cain says

    Just what I need!! My job requires ALOT of walking and my shoes now are just about shot. I am going to need a new pair soon. :)

  71. Ashley Williams says

    I’m not usually a big fan of leopard print but omg those shoes. How could you not want to work out with those?!

  72. Jennai says

    Those leopard skin print shoes are awesome! I need some!
