~ 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. ~
With all the hubbub going on within the last few weeks, due to the rush of back-to-school shopping, I can only say one word— “OUCH!”
My feet have been aching like crazy due to the constant walking I’ve been doing. Unfortunately my shoes are on their “last leg” of sorts and they’re not too comfortable or supportive– especially for extended use.
Luckily I was offered an opportunity from Reebok through a Mom Central campaign recently that couldn’t have come at a better time.
Reebok knows that moms like myself focus so much on our kids this time of year that we tend to forget about ourselves and our own needs so Reebok wanted to reach out to a group of moms and give them the chance to do something nice for themselves. My task was to visit my local Famous Footwear store, check out the new women’s Reebok athletic shoes and purchase a pair or two.
ME shop? Really? Of course I will. I love shopping and I love a good bargain.
That’s exactly what I found at Famous Footwear too. It was actually a pleasant surprise. What I mean by that is, after viewing the selection of women’s Reebok’s (3 different styles to be exact), picking my favorite style, and heading to the check out, I was in total shock to find out what the order came to.
See, the sticker price on the shoes I selected was $74.99. That’s a little more than what I would typically spend (yes I’m on a tight budget) but because Reebok wanted me to have a great pair of shoes, I figured what the heck. I’m game! I also grabbed a pair of shoes for Gina since I knew hers were worn out like mine. Her sticker price? Another $74.99.
So what was the grand total after my final trip around the store? $59.90 (after tax).
Amazing, right? Of course it is. I had no idea the Reebok’s I selected would ring up at $39.99 (there were no sale signs) and because Famous Footwear is currently offering a BOGO (Buy One Get One) for half price deal, AND I had a rewards member 20% off coupon, my shoes came to just $15.99. AWESOME bargain!!!
Original price: $74.99
Sale price: $39.99
20% off discount: – $4.00
Half price discount: – $20.00
Final price: $15.99
Never have I ever bought a pair of quality athletic shoes for under $20. That was a steal, don’t you think? I totally thought I would walk in that store and spend beyond what my gift card would cover but boy was I wrong. I scored 2 pairs of Reebok’s and could have bought more.
Now I plan to take hubby back there and get him a pair or two as well. He wasn’t able to attend this shopping trip.
I really love Reebok shoes. They’re always made of quality materials, they’re super comfy and the style I bought this time around are amazingly lightweight. Plus, they’re a bit roomier than my old shoes. I really dislike shoes that are tight on my feet because once I’ve walked for extended periods my feet tend to swell and if the shoes start off tight, I know I’m going to be in pain later on (even if they’re my actual size). My new Reebok shoes are, in my opinion, true to size but loose enough as if I’ve already worn them a few times.
I know I’m not going to have that tight “breaking in” period with my new Reebok SUBLITE TR shoes. They’re made with mesh and a synthetic upper so my feet can breathe when I’m walking or running, the mid sole is constructed of a cushiony 3D Sublite foam and the bottom outer sole is a durable carbon rubber — all of which provides the ultimate in comfort and flexibility.
Did I mention how super cute these are? I love the color combination — black, white, grey and cosmic berry (pink).
These babies are just what I need when I’m doing my step aerobics, walking or jogging on my treadmill or hitting the stores. Yes, you need comfy, breathable shoes when shopping (at least the way I do it anyway). I’m on the hunt. hehee!
BUY NOW & SAVE!
If YOU or your children are in need of athletic shoes this time of year I highly recommend you head over to Famous Footwear and grab a pair of Reebok shoes before they’re all gone. At this price, you can’t afford to miss out on this awesome deal. Get some for the whole family!
