What’s New in the Kid’s Shoe Market #Skechers #Giveaway

I like to consider myself a little bit of a shoe connoisseur. I know, that’s a bold statement, so let me back this up by explaining myself. I collect running shoes (some people might call it odd but those who know … know!). There are women out there that like to collect purses, some like to collect jewelry, other like to collect high heeled shoes, but me, I get excitement looking at my shoe closet (yes I have one) and pick a pair of sneakers to wear for the day (it’s the little things right?!). I am well versed on the newest styles, new releases and what the hottest colour schemes/colour blocks are.

When you procrastinate doing work or laundry or cleaning something up, what are you doing? Big shocker … I am on my couch with a computer on my lap looking online for my next pair of sneakers. One thing to know about me, this shoe love of mine is not just my shoes, my kids have pretty awesome shoes I must say. In fact, I kind of pride myself on their shoe collection and secretly love when someone notices a pair. When I bring home a new pair of shoes, they get just as excited as I do. What more can a mother who loves shoes ask for 😉

A while back I reviewed the new Women’s Skechers Burst which got major props from me because … well … they are simply amazing. I was thrilled to just recently hear that Skechers now have the mini version of the Skechers Burst and of course I was more than thrilled to review them along with the Skechers Nitrate-Pulsar.

Why I love the Kids Skechers Burst Shoe
– great colour options to choose from
– they are SUPER lightweight but not taking away from the quality of the shoe

– soft responsive Burst compound allows maximum flexibility
– Burst grip traction design

Skechers Boys Nitrate-Pulsar - Kid's Shoe

The New Skechers Burst are a MUST this Summer! #Giveaway

It’s as if Skechers knew I had a love for shoes/sneakers because I came home from work one day to a large package and inside were these new babies and I couldn’t be more excited.

Sketchers Burst

I am a picky person when it comes to shoes, but Skechers knocked this one out of the park with the new Skechers Burst – Sweet Symphony. I put them on immediately and did not want to take them off. In fact, I wanted to go for a walk in them so badly that I told my kids they could get ice cream just to entice them to go for a walk with me. Besides the fact the shoes look awesome with their flat knit mesh material and cool inter-woven coloured pattern, they are unbelievably lightweight and have an air cooling memory foam insole making them that much more comfortable. Bonus: they came with an extra pair of laces so I could change up the look of them (which of course I did right away).

What I love about the new Skechers Burst
– The extremely flexible sole so it moves with your foot
– This style comes in a high top and a low top (the high tops are my fave)
– They are made out of a flat knit mesh which makes for good breathability
– Interwoven ventilating side design
– They have embroidered eyelets which is very uncommon and just makes for an all around better shoe
– They have a padded tongue just adding to the comfort of the shoe
– They have a Burst Compound midsole with great impact cushioning protection which allows maximum flexibility
– The lightest weight shoe!!!!!!!!!!!!
– Flexible outer sole with Burst Grip traction design
– They have a 1-1/2 inch heel which is great for us vertically challenged one’s :)

I can honestly do not have one negative thing to say about these shoes, I absolutely love them and I get compliments on them when ever I am wearing them

GIVEAWAY! GIVEAWAY! GIVEAWAY!
Lucky for 1 person, Skechers is very kindly giving away 1 pair of their ladies’ style Skechers Burst (winners choice of high top or low top). You must be a resident of Canada. Here’s how to enter:

The Summer’s Best Kids Shoes #TinyToms

Tiny Toms Shoes

I am sure most, if not all of you know about TOMS shoes (I do have a few myself), and with their amazing initiative coupled with the cutest, trendiest and most comfortable shoes, these are the must-have shoes for the summer.

Tiny Toms

I recently had the opportunity to review Tiny TOMS for my two boys and I can’t say enough wonderful things about the shoes.

Tiny Toms

I always have issues getting slip on shoes on my kids because both of them have “puffy” feet (that is really the only way I can describe it), but these are the ONLY one’s that I can get on without having a massive fight with my older guy and trust me I have tried many.

Why I love these Shoes:
The question is what don’t I love about these shoes! Beyond the fact that they easily slip on to my kids feet, they give back with their One to One campaign. For every pair of TOMS shoes you purchase, a pair is given to children in Argentina – AMAZING right?!
– They have shoes for children aged 0-5 (tiny sizes) and 5+ (youth sizes)
– There are many styles to choose from
– One style (the one’s we tested) have a velcro strap which makes it super easy to get the shoes on
– Their website is extremely easy to navigate and order from (I am a big online shopper so this is very important to me)
– They have a Canadian site so you aren’t paying duties and international surcharges
– They are lightweight and come in a ton of colours and adorable prints
