Back to School Shoe Shopping for Mom! #sponsored #ReebokMom

“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.”

If you’ve been to the gym, you’ve seen it all – you can tell the ones that love their workout clothes and are all cute and color coordinated.  Of course you want to be comfortable and feel good about what you’re wearing.


One thing that’s very obvious is the bright colored shoe trend! Fun! I want some of those! I was excited to go to Famous Footwear and pick out some bright colored Reebok’s for this post.


Our Famous Footwear store is very handy, just down the street from us and if I’m shoe shopping, I always look there. Famous Footwear normally has a large selection of shoes, but I’d have to say, they didn’t have many in women’s Reebok shoes. While the three styles they did have in store were on sale and any of them would been nice to have, I had already spotted a pair on the Reebok website that really seemed more “me”.  I decided to go home and buy them online.


As far as shopping in Famous Footwear, now that I think of it, I don’t think I talked to anyone while I was there. The last pair of shoes I bought there an associate spent quite a bit of time helping me select a pair of shoes.

I’d have to say I was a little nervous ordering them online because I have a hard time finding shoes that fit me right. I have a wide foot and the support doesn’t always feel comfortable. Plus, it’s true, so I’ll just say it: I’m picky.

I ended up getting the Reebok Women’s Zig Kick.


Thumbs upWhat I like about this pair of Reebok shoes:

  • The colors! Who doesn’t buy shoes based somewhat on how they look? Still, these are quite bold for me. Winking smile
  • The FIT!  These Reebok shoes fit me better than any I’ve had in a long time. They fit close but are wider in the toe which is perfect for me.  I’m not sure I’ve ever owned a pair of Reebok shoes – maybe years ago. I would certainly buy Reebok shoes again based on fit.
  • Light! I DO NOT like big clunky shoes. I don’t athletic shoes except for exercise, because they feel heavy and awkward. Usually I’m barefoot or wearing socks around the house, and sandals in the summer so it feels strange for me to wear “big” shoes. This pair is very light. I can wear these around the house comfortably.
  • I’ve worn these for walking, running, working with the trainer and biking. They are comfortable the whole time. A friend of mine who teaches at the gym said she likes her Reebok Zigs for Zumba.


I got a great deal on these shoes since they were on sale and rewards members get an additional 20% off. I foolishly didn’t take advantage of the BOGO 1/2 off since I was in a bit of a hurry and I wanted to buy a pair for my son but he wasn’t along to pick out or try on shoes.  I do have some money leftover on the gift card that I will put towards new school shoes for him.

This mom is thrilled with her “Back to school” Reeboks!Stacy
