2012 Back To School Guide: Chooka Chantal Skimmer Flats {Review & Giveaway}


Featured Sponsor



The school year is quickly approaching and with that comes LOTS of running around. Lots of running around usually involves trekking indoors and out. With the unpredictable weather in the Midwest, I've not been prepared when a quick rain quickly rolls in.... stuck in flip flops... my feet end up wet and well... just plain gross. Thankfully, Chooka has introduced the Chantal Skimmer flats that are not only comfortable, but also waterproof.



About Chooka
(Credit: Chookaboot.com)

Chooka was born from the idea that utility can be beautiful. The concept began at a small, Seattle based company, when third generation CEO, Rob Moehring decided to take a risk with the family company.

It started simply, with bright colors and polka dots and moved quickly into everything from tattoos to leopard prints. The rubber boot changed from a muddy trudging wellie to a blank canvas, capable of displaying tremendous works of art.

Now establishing itself as number one in fashion raingear, Chooka has come a long way.  With new and innovative silhouettes and fresh and young designs, Chooka is growing and reinventing the rain boot every season. It has proved that utility can be beautiful, unique and stylish.



ace and friends thoughts

The generous folks at Chooka (part of the Washington Shoe Company) sent over the NEW waterproof Chantal Skimmers to help me trek through my Midwest unpredictable weather. These flats are super charming and extra delightful. You can certainly dress up you casual look with these adorable flats. The interior is lined with a soft neoprene that is removable and adds a little extra comfort to your step.

Chooka Skimmers are available in whole sizes and run a bit big, so I would suggest sizing down if your shoe size falls between two sizes. I wore them out for an evening and received quite a few compliments... they are VERY cute and more importantly comfortable. I like the criss-cross strap that has a convenient velcro closure.

Chooka not only offers a variety of colors and styles of skimmers, but they also offer over 45 different styles to choose from in their rain boot collection too. Finally, these Chantal Skimmers appear very well made and offer a PERFECT alternative to your heavier rain boots.
