Whenever something totally amazing hits my desk, I get really excited to share the news. So when our favorite TV trainer (Bob, we love you too!), Jillian Michaels, designed her first pair of lightweight running and training shoes for K-Swiss, I said sign me up for a pair!

The FLY TUBES from the Jillian Michaels Collection by K-Swiss are an awesome shade of forest green and yellow (her favorite colors!), and feature an eagle graphic with the mantra “Fly” inscription on the heel. Shoes that speak? I’m kind of loving that.

Not only do they look cool, but the real message of these shoes is even cooler. When you purchase a pair, a portion of the proceeds will go directly to the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity by 2015 and empower kids to make healthy lifestyle choices. I think these TUBES speak for themselves.

As new research finds about 17 percent of U.S. children aged 2 to 19 are obese, and with obesity rates expected to increase to about 65 million Americans within the next fifteen years, whatever each one of us can do to help this growing epidemic will surely help immensely. Do good and feel good with a pair of Jillian’s newest kicks! And if you’re thinking ahead, they make great holiday presents if I don’t say so myself.

Get your pair today sold exclusively on amazon.com!

Now tell us:Does a new pair of kicks motivate you to hit the road?
