Disclosure: 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.
So, I’ll be honest. I’ve never really owned a good pair of athletic shoes. I mean, I didn’t have shoes that were falling apart, but I never participated in sports that much, so I didn’t see the need. I mean, why spend money on something that were just used for casual exercise or work out videos?
Well, Forrest has been teaching me to play tennis recently. He’s tried to teach me in the past, but this is the first time it’s really paid off. We’ve even been able to play actual games, which is saying something. Jack has even played a little too!
After we had been playing for awhile, I realized that I really needed some new athletic shoes. The other ones I had were a few years old, and were starting to hurt my feet. So, when I was given the chance to buy a new pair of Reebok shoes from Famous Footwear, I was so excited.
You guys — it has made a world of difference, and I’m being 100 percent honest. I feel like I’m able to run faster, be more agile, and they just feel more comfortable overall. Not to mention they are way cuter than the other shoes I’d been sporting since my Sophomore year of college. I am now convinced that even a basic exerciser or athlete can benefit from having a pair of good fitting athletic shoes.
I don’t really like buying clothes and shoes online, so Forrest and I headed over to the Famous Footwear store in Littleton to check out their selection of Reebok shoes. Unfortunately, they only had one pair, and I didn’t like them at all, so I went home to check out the site. Fortunately, there is a huge selection of Reebok shoes for both men, women, and children, and I had such a hard time narrowing it down. I finally decided on the Reebok SUBLITE TR shoes, and could hardly wait for them to come in the mail.
I purchased a size 9, regular width shoe, and it seems pretty true to the size, though a bit wider than some “regular width” shoes I’ve tried on, which I appreciated, and they might run about 1/2 a size too big. I’ve never worn a Reebok shoe before, so I have nothing to compare it to in that respect, but it was far superior than the other running shoes I had (I don’t even know what brand they were!) They are super light weight, which I didn’t realize until is an important quality to have in a shoe! You can read my full review here. Reebok has the best selection of kid’s shoes, and I wished they had some in Jack’s tiny size because they were so cute.
Overall, I felt like most of the Reebok shoes were reasonably priced for how great of quality they were– it seemed like most were even on sale! Famous Footwear also has some awesome deals, which makes it more affordable.
