New Balance Kids Sneakers Giveaway

It’s Back to School Time! The list is long of everything needed. For Shaun the top of his list are new sneakers. By the time summer rolls around we are lucky his shoes have stayed in one piece so he can truly beat them up. New Balance is back with a great review for kids sneakers; this time of the 688 collection.

New Balance 688 – Perfect for the active kid on the go, the New Balance 688 offers the support, comfort and cushioning Moms and Dads look for, in a bright, fun package that kids will love. The 688 is a technical running shoe featuring ABZORB cushioning and a fashionable upper design in a variety of pop colors. Available in lace or alternative closures for July 2011. MSRP: $44.95 Youth, $34.95 Infant.

Shaun is the typical boy; tshirts, running shorts and sneakers tend to be his uniform for school. As cool weather comes around just switch the shorts with jeans. He likes to be able to take off on foot if the opportunity arises and doing that is fancy shoes doesn’t work. I asked him to pick out his New Balance 688 and he instantly chose gray/red/black color combination with the alternative closure. The kid knows how to tie his shoes but that is just a waste of his time. A quick hook & loop closure is the much better way to go to get out the door and to the bus stop.

We’ve never had a bad experience with New Balance sneakers. For the last 4 years they’ve been all the Shaun and Rob wears. They hold up to daily wearing and as long as they fit they continue to work well as play, gardening, yard work shoes once a newer, shinier pair comes along.

Just in time for Back to School, New Balance is giving away a child/infant pair of 688 sneakers to a LookWhatMomFound…and Dad too! reader. Visit New Balance and tell me the color combination you choose and who they would be for.
