I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Reebok and Finish Line. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for participating. All opinions are mine.
I looked down at my son’s feet. He had grown almost an inch over the winter but was still wearing the same sneakers. Suddenly, they looked ridiculously small.
Kids’ feet seem to sprout almost overnight. One minute, they’re a size 1.5. Then suddenly they’re a 2.5! It’s tough to keep up some days. From basketball practice to recess to wrestling with the dog, it’s paramount kids have the right pair of sneakers to keep up with their active lives!
Thanks to Reebok and Finish Line, we had to opportunity to check out Reebok’s latest shoe, the Reebok ZigTech Big N’ Fast EX Sneaker.
When we entered Finish Line, we were greeted by a wall of shoes. I was a bit concerned we wouldn’t be able to find them, but I shouldn’t have. These shoes literally pop off of the wall. They are distinctive, bold and fun.
My 2nd Grader, Vman, couldn’t wait to try these on. He absolutely had to try out the blue shoes. He instantly remarked on how light they felt. Then he did a couple of laps around the store for good measure. I noticed the innovative lightweight foam that creates terrific support also forms a fun zig zag shape on the sneakers. Fun and functional! Two words moms LOVE to hear.
Vman insisted on wearing his new shoes home. “Hey, Mom. Check out how cool the bottoms of these shoes are,” he yelled to me as we were checking out. We didn’t even make it out of Finish Line before Vman asked me to take several pics and immediately text them to his dad. He just couldn’t wait for the car ride home to show off his stylish sneakers!
Sending Vman off today to school, I could see the extra swagger in his step. There’s no doubt he was feeling swanky in his new shoes. And I like knowing he feels great from the foam support that will let him enjoy the active parts of school, including recess and wellness class.
In case your kiddo isn’t a fan of blue, the Reebok ZigTEch Big N’ Fast Ex Sneaker comes in grey with yellow shoelaces looks pretty awesome, too.
