I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Reebok. I received a Famous Footwear gift card to purchase a pair of Reebok shoes to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating….
It has been busy, busy, busy, in our home this past week with my son’s first day in 5th grade on Monday. What a bittersweet day. After meeting his teacher (who is amazing) I am feeling somewhat better about this year. It being his last year in elementary school makes me incredibly sad, though.
I’ve also started a new weight loss / fitness program, because I really want to be in the best shape I can be in for my family. I think that could be contributing to my mood over this school year, too. Hey, mama loves to eat, and the calorie deficit, well… it isn’t pretty.
Famous Footwear and Reebok realizes all the things we moms are going through in preparing our kids for back-to-school and wanted to give us moms our own back to school reward. I’m a proud #ReebokMom.
I checked out Famous Footwear online, since I’ve never ordered from them before to get an idea of what they had to offer, but I’ve never ordered shoes online before… I just feel like I need to try them on. Plus, I needed to get my son a pair of shoes for back-to-school, too. And he had to be able to pick them out himself, not to mention, he had to try his on.
So off to our local Famous Footwear we went.
I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you just how much I love shoes. Whether it’s a pair of cute sandals, pumps, or running shoes, I get all giddy when I enter a shoe store.
When we went into Famous Footwear my son went to look for his shoes while I perused the women’s aisles. My only disappointment was with the variety of choices. I saw several cute pairs online, but in-store, there were only 3 choices (I say three, but there were really only one choice for me) — two pair of plain white Reebok and the Reebok Zig Kick shoes in black/pink/white.
They fit me perfectly. I’ve worn them a dozen or more times so far and they are very comfortable.
While I was trying my Reeboks on in the store, my son comes over all excited because he found THE pair of shoes for back-to-school. He just had to have them… a pair of red Reebok Zig Kicks. True story. What can I say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
When I was looking at Famous Footwear online, I signed up for a Famous Footwear Rewards card and by doing so was able to print out a 20% off coupon. It was nice handing the cashier my Famous Footwear gift card and 20% coupon (not to mention my shoes were on sale for $69.99), and even nicer hearing my total for two pairs of Reebok athletic shoes was $31. Nice!
After almost three weeks of wearing my Zig Kicks I can tell you my feet are happy with my choice. These aren’t the first pair of Reeboks I’ve owned, but it had been awhile. I won’t wait so long next time.
If you’re looking for a good pair of running shoes, I highly recommend the Reebok Zig Kick, check out my review on the Famous Footwear site.
I really appreciate that Famous Footwear wants moms to be treated special during this back-to-school season. After all, it is usually moms that make back to school happen.
