5 Reasons to Send Them Back to School With Character

As the hottest months of the year draw to a close, we’ll be spending less time organizing play dates and taking the kids to the pool and spending far more time on their schoolwork. Sure, we’ll be happy they’re getting an education, but our little scholars will be a little less enthused. Curb their antipathy with a colorful and fun back-to-school wardrobe with lots of character!

Here are 5 great reasons to liven up their new wardrobe as they head back into the classroom:

1. The summer is over but that doesn’t have to be the end of fun.  Sure there will be less time to play and lounge, but every minute of the day can still shine bright with fun superhero kicks or expression tees!

2. Playtime will be far more imaginative.  Their imagination will be their getaway. They’ll save the playground from the mad scientist or guard their jungle-gym kingdom from outside forces! They’ll use their magic to save the prince from the enemy or maybe just be the big goofball you know them to be!

3. Let their personalities shine! Is your mini-me a natural born beach bum, a fun-loving joker, or do they toe with the Dark Side™ of their wardrobe? Wherever they fall on the personality panorama, there are lively characters to fit.  Put Darth Vader® on their feet or a cuddly party octopus on their shirt to add a little charisma to their day!

4. The early morning struggle. They aren’t the only ones who don’t like the early morning! Everything feels like a struggle: getting yourself dressed, getting them dressed, breakfast, grabbing your coffee and the commute. It can be a lot more than a parent can handle.  At least there will be one thing that goes smoothly, choosing their outfit! They’ll love the selection, you’ll love the ease!

5. It takes care of part of your back-to-school shopping right now! Sure you need to purchase the ever-growing list of required school supplies, but you can also have some fun with awesome styles from MARVEL®, Star Wars®, Disney®, Neff®, Stride Rite®, The Original Retro Brand®, Billabong®, Roxy®, and adidas® Originals. Imagine the convenience of having their cool new wardrobe sent right to your door!

Our Favorite Bags by adidas

As summer comes to a close, we’ll spend less time packing beach totes and more time filling school bags. It’s back to the daily grind ­of projects, homework, and living on the go. Carrying your weekly essentials is crucial and adidas makes toting textbooks, laptops, and school supplies easy and safe with durable, thoughtfully created packs.

adidas uses innovative features like climacool technology to keep you cool while lugging your bag and FreskPAK ventilation to inhibit odor-causing bacteria. Materials like tricot-lining help bags and backpacks hold their shape and show minimal wear and tear, even with frequent use. Padded laptop sleeves, water bottle pockets, and tons of organization slots ensure every item has a place. You can keep your individuality too with unique screen-printed designs, bright colors or more classic tones.

Almost all of adidas bags offer the same technology regardless of size or type. From totebags to backpacks and gym bags, most styles have thick straps or padded handles to make all-day carrying more comfortable. So which adidas bag style is right for you?  Well that depends on your individual fashion sense! But, here are a few of our favorites to consider:

Help Your Kids Have a Fun Run with Saucony Kids!

kids' running shoes, saucony, Saucony Kids, Saucony Kids Guide 7, Saucony Kids Kinvara 5, Saucony Kids running shoes, Saucony running

When it comes to race time, you want running shoes that are comfortable and fit well.  Kids need the same. 

Saucony knows that kids have different needs than adults, so they design sneakers specifically for kids’ developing feet. 

Here are some tips from the experts at Saucony Kids:

 

NO HAND-ME-DOWNS

The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) discourages the practice of passing down footwear from one child to another because of the potential for improper fit and health issues.

 

GROWING LIKE WEEDS

Kids’ feet can grow up to a half size every 3-4 months. Check those sneakers you bought last year, your child may have outgrown them!

 

BUILT FOR KIDS

Not all sneakers are built specifically for kids.  Look for lightweight yet strong and flexible styles from brands that don’t just shrink down adult shoes to kids’ sizes.

 

 

Get your kids fitted for new sneakers that will help them finish the run healthy and happy!

Check out a couple of our favorite styles from Saucony Kids:

Saucony Kids Kinvara 5

This lightweight shoe features FlexFilm, an ultra-light yet strong material with minimal layers for greater flexibility and support for growing feet.  Colorful and comfortable, your kids will be running circles around everyone come race day!
