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.
Famous Footwear because they offer a wide variety of brands and styles to choose from for everyone in the family. Most importantly, I could buy brand name shoes there at reasonable prices. Shopping there is fun and easy on our pocket book too.
As some of you might have already heard from my other posts, I workout 5 days a week. After having my second kid, I realized that I was not going to be able to lose the weight I gained from having 2 kids without some serious work on my part. I started doing CrossFit over a year ago. When I started working out, I did not invest in any new workout clothes or shoes at all. To be honest, I was not sure how dedicated I would be with the workouts. A couple of months after wearing sweatpants and worn out shoes, I decided that it was time for me to invest in real workout gear. I picked up some tops and pants while I was out shopping with my friend Jenn, I also picked up a pair of running shoes that was on clearance. However, now that I have been working out for over a year, I realized that I was in a serious need of a pair of decent running shoes for days where I have to run 5K at the gym. I have always been a fan of Reebok, so I was really looking forward to running in a pair of their shoes.
I did have to check out a couple of Famous Footwear store to find a pair of running shoes I really like, but I totally scored when I find a pair on sale. I tried them on at the store and then walked around in them. Of course, the real test was actually working out wearing my new shoes.
My daughter is heading back to school in just a few weeks, so we have begun doing some major back to school shopping for her. I don't get to treat myself very often. A such, I was really excited that Famous Footwear provided a gift card for me to pick up a pair of Reebox for myself. Since my new shoes were on sale, with the remaining credit I had, I was able to purchased some socks and a pair of leather sandals for myself too. I love that I got a lot more for my money at Famous Footwear. I also love that I was able to get the brand I preferred.
