Beat the rush with #backtoshoes from The Athlete's Foot AND a competition!
So instead of battling the back-to-school crowds, this year I am determined to beat the rush well before school starts. That’s exactly why I thought I would get in early and get the boys fitted for their school gear and so it was, with sand in their thongs, that we headed off to The Athlete's Foot for 2014 school shoes.
I was thrilled to be invited to work with The Athlete's Foot on their #backtoshoes campaign and was lucky enough to have both Oscar and Noah's fitted for school shoes courtesy of TAF, who are sponsors of this post.
I honestly wouldn't take the kids anywhere else to be fitted for school shoes. The kids spend so much time kicking around in them that a professional fit is a must to ensure their growing feet are given plenty of support and room for growth.
Did you know that children’s feet can change up to 34 times before they reach the age of 11? So it’s all important they have the right fit for their foot from the start of their school life, don't you think, Mums?
The Athlete's Foot have all school footwear needs covered and stocks quality footwear from Clarks, Ascent and more. In fact, Ascent school shoes are exclusively available at The Athlete's Foot and have become a widely trusted back to school shoe.
Regardless of the brand chosen, it really is all about the fit. Mums, like me, can rest assured that with the newly launched FITZI in-store fitting experience, a member of The Athlete's Foot team will be able to equip your child's foot with the most suitable school shoe to get them off to a great school start.
Both the boys just loved the in-store fitting experience with FITZI used by a 3-day trained "Master Fit Technicican". This new and exciting super technology, two years in the making, filmed and pressure-tested each of the boys to ensure they were fitted with a shoe any podiatrist would be proud of!
Both the Ascent and Clarks brand came highly recommended by The Athlete's Foot staff and after trying on a range of kicks, Noah and Oscar were both successfully fitted with The Athlete’s Foot Ascent brand. Noah decided upon the Apex style, like a traditional school shoe, and Oscar was fitted with the Velcro style, the Cluster.
But ... wait ... guess what????
That is not all! I'm so excited to share with you that The Athlete's Foot is running a fantastic competition from January 08 - February 15! They have 5 packs to give away, each worth a mighty $500!
Entry is super easy - all you need to do is upload and share a pic of your child's new shoes - using the #backtoshoes hashtag - on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook to be in the running.
