GIVE THE GIFT OF SKECHERS PERFORMANCE, SKECHERS CANADA STORE NOW OPEN AT CF RIDEAU CENTRE
Every Christmas, for many, many years, I tend to shower my friends and family with a number of gifts that I think they either need or want. I pride myself for picking the most appropriate gift for each recipient, which I hope they will love and use a lot but the truth of the matter is, sometimes, these gifts are not the practical kind. Their use is really just limited to certain specific events or special occasions. Like the luxurious faux-fur or the bejeweled artisan clutch or the triple-strand pearl necklace for example. Because let’s face it, who gives and want to receive practical gifts for Christmas like the dishwasher, vacuum cleaner or the microwave!
True story: I received a microwave one year and though I admit it is quite useful and exactly what I needed, that Christmas gift was far from being romantic or at least festive for the season. He did not score any brownie points that Christmas!
This year, I vow to do things a little bit different. I want to put even more careful thought into selecting the right gift and to focus less on material things and more on experiential things like travel or novel experiences. Or at least… choose material things that meet the balance of form and function. Beautiful yet practical like everything that you can find at the new SKECHERS CANADA store in CF Rideau Centre!
DID YOU KNOW: SKECHERS CANADA NOW HAS A SKECHERS PERFORMANCE STORE AT CF RIDEAU CENTRE?
Located at the new wing of the redevelopment project of CF Rideau Centre, the new SKECHERS CANADA and SKECHERS PERFORMANCE store is such a welcome addition to all the new brands that just opened up downtown! Aside the huge selection of men and women’s shoes, I’m really excited that this SKECHERS CANADA store carries apparel for both men and women!
Why? Because the new SKECHERS PERFORMANCE Apparel is a line of work-out, fitness, performance wear that are not only well designed in terms of colours and style, it is also made of great quality without the hefty price. This is such a good news for winter when we all cringe at the thought of stepping outside to run or head to the gym to work-out. It’s an extra motivation whether you tend to work outdoors or indoors during the cold winter months.
They say one of the ways to help motivate you to keep your fitness routine during this cold season is to wear great looking work-out clothes! It’s absolutely true when they say when you look good, you feel good. In fact, there are studies that show that people who wear proper fitness apparel tends to work out more efficiently than those who dress with their ragged, old, baggy sweatpants and sweatshirts.
SKECHERS CANADA STORE CARRIES SHOES, SKECHERS PERFORMANCE APPAREL AND MORE
That’s why I’m very thrilled that there’s a new SKECHERS CANADA store nearby where this kind of beautiful but not expensive apparel is just within reach! In fact, the store carries the following sections: Women’s Lifestyle, Men’s Lifestyle, Kids, Women’s Performance, Men’s Performance and of course, SKECHERS PERFORMANCE Apparel for Men and Women. In addition to all that, the SKECHERS CANADA – CF Rideau Centre staff is simply amazing in many ways. They are the ultimate professional as they are highly trained, widely knowledgeable, extremely friendly and helpful and you just feel warm and welcomed every time you visit the store! They treat you like a friend or family and not just a customer and they GUARANTEE, the perfect fit with the most comfortable shoes you can ever find in the planet!
GIVE THE GIFT OF HEALTH AND FITNESS WITH SKECHERS PERFORMANCE AND SKECHERS CANADA
This is the kind of recent discovery (that one of my favourite shoe brands, SKECHERS CANADA, carries fitness apparel for men and women) that I truly want to share with all of you as I firmly believe, one of the best gifts you can give to your self and to your love ones is the gift of health and fitness.
Now that SKECHERS CANADA finally has a brick and mortar store right at the heart of downtown Ottawa, I think my Christmas Shopping is going to be a breeze! You should check it out too.

SKECHERS CANADA STORE AT CF RIDEAU CENTRE CARRIES SKECHERS PERFORMANCE APPAREL
Made with Active Stretch fabric for maximum range of motion, the SKECHERS CANADA top, leggings and windbreaker are so comfortable, it’s like the fabric is your second skin. Most of the fitness apparel is made with moisture management fabric, which wicks away moisture. In other words, sweat does not stick to you in this fabric.
SKECHERS PERFORMANCE APPAREL SCOUT TANK TOP
The SKECHERS Apparel Scout Tank Top (as worn by Sydney below) is a Nylon, Poly and Spandex blend fabric in a cross back active tank top with Active Stretch fabric and Moisture Management design. There’s a built in shelf bra with removable bra cups as well as mesh liner and detailed fashion cutout on the back that adds enhanced breathability. The top features flatlock seams reduce irritation.

Just look at the stunning details of these items. There’s a reflective silver Skechers Performance heat transfer logo on the side towards the hip that’s subtle and not in your face kind of branding. This top has a beautiful ikat pattern panel on back grants bold colorblocking and I’m particularly in love with the back cut that I got it in two different colour combinations! (Available from XS to XXL.)
SKECHERS PERFORMANCE APPAREL GO SHIELD JACKET
The SKECHERS Apparel GO Shield Jacket is water resistant (as worn by Karisa below) and is made of 100% Polyester, 100% PU with Ceramic Print Back blend fabric. It has the same active stretch fabric that provides maximum range of motion. I love the five pockets, including a zipper chest pocket, two hand pockets, and two velcro pockets with a top flap. Perfect to carry all your winter essentials like gloves and toques. You can also see more outfit combination with SKECHERS Apparel GO Shield Jacket here.
Unlike mostly non-shape jackets of this kind, the SKECHERS Apparel GO Shield Jacket has adjustable hem for different levels of snugness and there’s shirring at the back that provides the slim feminine shape. There’s also a media port in right hand pocket and media loop near collar to keep your headphones inside your jacket and prevent dangling and tangling – a BIG bonus! Plus, the mock neck collar helps keep your neck warm. Like all its apparel, there’s a reflective silver Skechers Performance and Skechers GOSHIELD heat transfer logos. (Available from XS to XXL.)
SKECHERS PERFORMANCE APPAREL LAMB LEGGINGS
Last but certainly not the least, the SKECHERS Apparel – Lamb Leggings (worn by both Sydney and Karisa above), which is starting to become my top favourite leggings… It is a Nylon, Poly and Spandex blend fabric in a performance fitted legging pant design with Active Stretch fabric for maximum all day comfort. Like the two tops, it has moisture management fabric wicks moisture away from the skin to the garment’s outer surface.
It has hidden pocket in waistband, perfect for storing your keys while you work out and it has tapered gusset helps avoid ride-up, which as you know, is definitely a HUGE help! (Available from XS to XL.)
As you can see from all the beautiful outfits worn by the very good looking and super friendly SKECHERS CANADA staff at CF Rideau Centre location, each of this SKECHERS PERFORMANCE item can be mixed and matched with what you already have in your closet. You can create many different outfit combinations that are fantastic for yoga, running, hiking, working out and of course, everything in between.
