Back to School with Skechers Canada #GIVEAWAY

This time of year is often filled with mixed emotions. A part of me is excited for the boys and myself to return to school, but the other part will miss all the chaos. We have been doing a lot of talking to prepare the boys for the change of back to school and also shopping. I wont lie the shopping part stress’s me out! With two boys who knows their likes and dislikes it can be a bit overwhelming being torn in a million directions. Thankfully when it comes to footwear, Skechers is their go to brand!

Knowing I can get shoes that not only they love but me too makes this part so much easier. Skechers has so many different styles available EVERYONE even your pickiest kid will find something they love. But this year they offered a new emoticon shoe collection. Not only are these shoes fun, bright and super stylish, they also have fun emoticon patterns on them. I was a little sad they did not come in my size!

Back to School with Skechers

My niece got to check out the stylish S Lights: Litebeams – Feelin It! Let your little one be styling while her foot is embraced with comfort and quality. Colorful emoji print fabric and glitter finish fabric upper in a slip on athletic sporty training sneaker. The slip on sneaker is perfect for little ones as it offers them the confidence in being able to do it themselves. With a unique colorful translucent midsole side pods kids will have everyone asking where they got their shoes. With an added glitter accent let your little one shine this back to school while expressing their personality in Skechers new emoticon shoes.

Skechers Back to School - EMoticon Shoes

At the start of the summer my guy was sporting the Nitrate – Game Kicks! I am happy to report they are still is amazing shape and he will be using them as his outdoor shoes this year. The shoes were such a big hit I knew that the Damager III – Game Kicks 2 would be a huge hit. Game Kicks are back and cooler than ever with the SKECHERS Damager III – Game Kicks 2 shoe.

Smooth metallic leather, synthetic and mesh fabric upper in a slip on sporty casual sneaker with fighter plane design and fully functional airplane game feature with light and sound action. Now with a remote game controller! I can not even tell you how much fun I had personally playing the fun game. Not only can you shut the volume on and off but the cute little controller is tucked into the tongue of the shoe.

My oldest has moved away from flashy lights and character shoes. Now it is all about sports, sports and more sports! As you know when kids are active it is important to have good, supportive shoes on their feet. This year he is sporting the SKECHERS Elite Flex shoe. The deep red colour grabbed his attention, but the style and comfort it offered made it a favourite. This year he is playing basketball so he needed a shoe that offered him a little more. The Elite Flex shoe has a unique flat knit mesh fabric and synthetic upper in a slip on bungee laced sporty comfort walking and training sneaker with interwoven designs. Air Cooled Memory Foam insole, highly flexible comfort midsole makes it a perfect choice!

Skechers has and will always be a favourite in our home. It offers us style, quality and so many options. Knowing that everyone in our home including myself can find something we love makes it even better. This back-to-school season head into your local Skechers store or visit them online. I promise you will not be disappointed!

    I actually like the SKECHERS Elite Flex shoe that your son picked, I have a nephew that could use new shoes and I think he would like that pair but in black. The game kicks are pretty fun too!

    Buy as many school supplies as you can at yard/garage sales during the summer. Sometimes you can score big hauls of pens/crayon/coloured pencils at great prices.

    Stock up on stationary items like looseleaf and pencils when you see the good prices pop up in summer. That way, you will have a supply if your child runs out during the school year when prices are much higher.

    For me personally, My favorite Skechers shoe is the Skech Air. I have a pair that I got about 4 years ago that is old, dirty and fraying but they are the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned. I cannot bring myself to toss them away. I’ll wear them until the soles fall off. For a kids show, I know my sons step son would love the Skechers Elite Flex shoe.

    Thinking back to when I was getting my son ready for back to school, I started preventative measure weeks in advance. About two weeks before school started, I began with the sleep regimen. Each night I put him to bed earlier and earlier and began waking him up earlier and earlier until we were on the school sleep schedule. I also did the school morning routine each day as well. We woke up, got dressed, had breakfast and brushed teeth. All school clothes and essentials were laid out and ready to go the night before. I found this way there was no fighting or scurrying to get ready. It was so much easier on the both of us.
