Kinship and bloodlines used to be so significant for me. Ever since my college days, I was always interested in genealogy and how my family was related to who or whom. I used to spend hours looking over family trees and tracing my ascendants, even to the point of reaching out to people who had the same last names as mine or any of my ascendants.

Then, I found myself checking out the casual and sports shoes section during the SM great shoe sale a few months ago, and this is where I discovered Skechers GO Walk . And so, when I was told that Skechers was opening a store in SM Bacolod I was excited to check out the different styles that they had to offer.
