Back to School Shopping with Reebok at Famous Footwear

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.

One of my favorite things about back to school shopping is picking up a few things for me, like new shoes and exercise clothes. Yep, that is how I celebrated back to school this year, with fabulous new workout gear. I know it's a little strange, but now that my kids are heading back to school, going to the gym is my new priority. And thanks to Famous Footwear and Reebok, I have new shoes to make my workouts easier.


I've been shopping at Famous Footwear for years. You just cannot beat their prices! When I shopped their deal was buy one pair and get another pair 50% off plus you can get even more off if you join their rewards program. I saved more than I spent when I bought my shoes; you just have to love that!  I like that the shoes are there on the sales floor so you can try them on without waiting for a salesperson. I just don't have the time with 3 kids to wait for someone to help me.

I do like that the salespeople will measure your kids feet for you and help if you need it, but I like to be on my own. Another thing I like about Famous Footwear, I can shop for everyone there. That is huge for me since the last thing I want to do is drag three kids through multiple stores.

I haven't bought Reebok shoes for a few years and after buying these shoes, I don't know why. Famous Footwear carried a large selection of Reebok shoes and it was hard for me to choose the one I wanted. I promised my husband that I would buy a pair for him too, so I didn't buy two. They fit great but that's not my favorite part. The shoes are very lightweight and not bulky at all! I can't stand big bulky shoes when I'm trying to kick butt in combat class, my favorite exercise class!

See? Nice and streamlined!

The only thing I didn't like about the shoes is the back digs into my heel a little with my no-show ankle socks. I had to switch to regular ankle socks to avoid the shoe rubbing against the back of my heel. It's not that big of a deal in the long run. I only wear the no-show socks since I think they look better. But don't you just love those colors? My shoes go great with my bright orange and bright pink shirts!


Now ready for the best part? I've worn these shoes for a few weeks now and I've gotten two compliments on them at the gym. Don't you just love it when someone gives you a compliment? One lady and I got into a long conversation about how hard it is to find shoes for the mixed martial arts class we both take. I assured her that the shoes were flexible and that they wouldn't hurt her feet like so many other shoes do after class. But even though they were flexible, they are sturdy enough to keep one foot firmly planted while the other is in the air. Trust me this is very important when you take exercise classes of any kind.


I am very pleased with my purchase and my feet look very stylish while I exercise. If you want more details check out Reebok and Famous Footwear online.
