Now that the kids are getting settled in school, have you found that you still need to make more purchases? I have! I thought having an indoor and outdoor pair of running shoes for the kids would suffice but it turns out many of their indoor play activities require indoor-only shoes as well. I don’t want them to bring their school shoes home because that’s just a recipe for a school-day-in-socks event, so out I went in search of new running shoes.
Now, children and tiny tots can sport Reebok’s ZigTech kid’s shoes, which are made with special technology designed to reduce wear and tear in key leg muscles by up to 20 per cent, while offering a comfortable fit for athletes of all ages.
ZigTech kids’ shoes are versatile and as well-suited for free play in the schoolyard as they are for sports activities in gym class. The open-weave mesh provides breathability and support, while the multi-surface outsole will give kids ultimate traction wherever they go.
Available with brightly colored accents in lime green, fuchsia or electric blue, the boys’ and girls’ styles are as fun to look at as they are to wear.
Grade school (sizes 3.5–7): $79.99
Preschool (sizes 10.5–3): $69.99
Toddlers (sizes 4-10): $59.99
Nevaeh received a pair of Zig Tech shoes for herself to try, similar to the ones mom has. They look adorable with jeans or leggings too. The only issue we encountered was that they are difficult to get on and off until the wear-in period is over. I struggle to get her foot in the opening of the shoe and am constantly loosening the laces but find that as time goes by this is becoming easier.
Reebok’s ZigTech kid’s shoes are available across Canada at Sport Chek, Foot Locker, Panda shoes, Sports Experts and Reebok stores.
