Famous Footwear and Reebok Help Moms Go Back to School11:33 AM
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 a while since I last shopped at Famous Footwear, mostly because our local one is at the mall. I sort of avoid the malls, so unless I'm specifically in the market for shoes, I wouldn't find myself in the area of one. As a pregnant mom, however, I really needed a new pair of walking/running sneakers, however. (No, there is no way I'm running, but just having comfy kicks for around the house is imperative.) One thing I have always appreciated about Famous Footwear is how they display their shoes. It's easy to see what they have in stock at a glance, and everything is organized in a way that makes sense. (Compare this to some other retailers, where you have to dig through layers of boxes to find out what they offer.)
I noticed right away with my shopping experience, that Reebok was a lot like other brands this season, in that all of the shoes were BRIGHT! Pinks, blues, oranges, and greens are the "in" thing, and while I think it's really cute for my kids, I wanted something a bit more subdued. I did found a beautiful pair of black and hot pink runners/trainers at the Famous Footwear website and had those shipped to my door.
I owned a pair of Reeboks over 10 years ago, so I didn't know what to expect in the way of fit. These kicks are comfy, however, and very, very light. As a pregnant lady, my feet swell, so I was tempted to buy a wider size than I normally do. I stuck with my traditional size, however, and they really stretched and gave way for my feet. I was happy not to have to return them!
Famous Footwear was a good one!
