Fashion Friday – The Perfect Gym to Street Shoes

Look no further for the perfect shoes to transition from gym to the street!

This post is sponsored by Saucony’s new Marl Pack shoes.  Thank you for allowing me to share posts like this that support Running in a Skirt.  As always, I only write about things I feel you would be interested in and that I trust!

The Perfect Gym to Street Shoes- Saucony Marl Pack Shoes / Running in a Skirt

Happy Fashion Friday!

How has your week been?  Mine has been good, although a little hectic with being out of town for a few days.  I have two holiday parties to go to this weekend, but not much else… so hopefully I can catch up and take some of my own advice from Mondays post on having a stress free holiday.   Making Healthier Twice Baked Potatoes and  Dark Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn is also on the agenda… just sayin’!

I’ve got a fun fitness/running twist for Fashion Friday today.   I found some really amazing shoes you’ll want to try, especially if you want to wear your cushy running/gym shoes more often but don’t feel like they always match your outfit. <— Story of my LIFE!

The Perfect Gym to Street Shoes- Saucony Marl Pack Shoes / Running in a Skirt

Now don’t get me wrong, I love my colorful (who are we kidding… pink… always pink) running shoes.   But the problem with the bright shoes is they can look a little nutty with street clothes.  My need to put together a nice polished look usually wins over my need to be comfortable and wear shoes that are good for my feet when I’m not running.  My feet suffer as a result.

For weeks I have been telling the Hubs that I want to buy a pair of running shoes that are black or grey so I can wear them with some of my non-running outfits.  This would be especially handy when I travel and know I’m going to be walking miles and miles, but still want to wear an outfit that looks put together.  My planters fasciitis always flares up when I wear bad shoes on trips!

It was almost like Saucony was reading my mind because they contacted me about their new Saucony Marl Pack shoes.


The concept is simple… they take your favorite running shoes and remix them in a sleek black and grey palette.  Marl is the fabric they are made of… it’s a knit cotton fabric that makes the grey color and cool texture.  The colors are so cute and blend a little better with real life. 🙂

I’m trying out the Triumph ISO 3.  It’s a neutral shoe with extra cushioning.  Ever since I’ve had some flares with planters fasciitis, I’ve been enjoying shoes with that little extra cushion.  The  Triumph ISO 3 feels cushiony but responsive on my feet.  The marl fabric is so light and comfortable!  It really makes for a lovely shoe.


I also got to try the Kineta Relays. (These shoes looks similar but are different!)

They are a super light everyday shoe with a memory foam liner.  They aren’t meant for running, but are great for light workouts or just doing errands around town.

I might live in these babies.  They feel like fancy slippers that are totally acceptable to wear out of the house– no joke!  I dare say I’m winning at life with these!  They are also at a great price point– only $70!


Saucony also makes the Marl Pack shoes in the Ride 9 and Guide 10, if those are your shoes!

I am so impressed with Saucony’s new Marl Pack shoes.  They are truly the perfect combination of fashion and function together!  It’s about time 🙂

Cute shoes can be functional! Love this gym to street look! #running #saucony Click To Tweet

    These shoes are so cute! Love that the have the extra cushioning too. These would definitely go from workout to errands perfectly!

    Nothing beats a great pair of sneakers and these look perfect!

    I feel you on the usual running shoe issue though. I’m a pink girl so all of my running shoes are HOT PINK and then I have my more subtle “everyday” shoes because pink unfortunately does not go with everything, haha!

    Omg what a comfy looking pair of kicks!!!! I’m all about comfy shoes these days. So need a pair

    These are really fashionable and they look so comfortable too. I love how they keep you stylish while you are trying to stay healthy.

    These shoes are super cute! I totally agree with you about the bright runners with normal clothes – it’s not a look I can pull off, that’s for sure. Thanks for sharing!!

    You’re right, my running shoes would never coordinate with my non workout gear… What a great idea to wear more neutral shoes! Looks great! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    These are great. I’m all about comfort – especially on my feet since my job requires me to be on them for most of the day. I would absolutely wear these shoes! I love the style.

    Your shoes are so nice and comfy. I like the phrase “gym to street”….I heard about running shoes, sport shoes, but gym to street is a creative way to describe its uses.

    I was just thinking about how I need to get another pair of sauconys! I had a pair a few years ago and I loved them!! But they just got worn out! I’m going to have to look into these!

  20. Heather @ FITaspire December 10, 2016 at 11:48 am - Reply

    I never thought about choosing more neutral shoes, so you could wear them outside the gym. It’s a fun idea though! Especially great for travel days where you are racking up steps at the airport 🙂

    Those are a great choice. I try to buy things that can serve multiple purposes, so the flexibility of these is great.

    Those are super cute shoes. Love the idea that they are so versatile and light.

    Love them! I remember twice going to look for “dressy” sneakers to wear with anything and people thought it was strange. I’m going to have to check these out!

    it looks so light, which is my priority.

    • JulieWunder December 11, 2016 at 11:32 am - Reply

      Yes!!! They are… especially the Kineta Relays.

    Multitasking shoes are the best! Especially when you’re bust running around and need something comfy!

    Saucony’s really upping their game! I love those!

    Cute shoes! I love how versatile the colour palette is… I’m definitely in need of some new running shoes for the new year

    I love versatile shoes that you can wear during the day and for exercise! and these do look super comfy

    I love that heather gray black look! These are SUCH cute shoes. I have a problem with gym shoes…I buy too many!

  31. Monica December 9, 2016 at 8:57 am - Reply

    What a great outfit! I live in my yoga pants and I’m always looking for a great pair of shoes. So much of my time is spent wolking the dog, in kickboxing classes and running errands. I love that the shoes are so cute for all occasions and they are affordable too!

  32. Can’t ever have too many shoes! I love some great shoes to wear around to and from the gym. Those look cute and comfy thanks for sharing
