We are officially back in school and already in the third week, with September quickly coming to an end. Yikes. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE the fall, but I HATE the winter, so slow down already.
I don’t know about you but I approached things differently with back to school this year. Instead of just going out and buying the kids a whole bunch of new clothes and things before school started, I picked up only the necessities like school supplies and indoor shoes, and figured I’d pick up the rest as needed.
I picked up a couple of pairs of shoes for each of the kids as well, but quickly realized the dude would require some really good running shoes for gym. Enter SportChek! They contacted me about checking out their site and picking out some shoes for the kids, which was very timely so I was so thankful about that.
I’ve been on the site before a few times for clothes, but never for kids’ shoes. Their selection is fantastic, ranging from running shoes and basketball shoes, to hiking and trendy options as well. They have a wide range of brands and price points, and often some great sales too – they have a 20% off sale on right now actually.
So what did we pick? My son picked out athletic shoes: Nike LunarGlide 7 Kids’ Grade-School Running Shoes
And my daughter went for trendy and picked: Converse CT All Star Slip It Girls’ Trend Shoes
We placed our order and received our shoes a quick two days later! They were both great picks and the kids were thrilled with their choices. And personally, I just love being able to order online within Canada, and avoiding extra duties and taxes and exchange. SportChek has you covered from shoes, boots, athletic wear, sports equipment and even fitness/sports related electronics.
I’d love to give you a chance to do a little shopping online at SportChek as well, so I’m giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky winner! The giveaway is open to Canadian residents and will run until September 28, 2015. GOOD LUCK!
