Back to school season means new shoes for my almost 8-year-old son, whose feet grow faster than the weeds in my flowers beds. Although I love shopping for new shoes, I don't like doing it with him. He doesn't share my love of browsing the racks to find the perfect pair, and he has the uncanny ability to turn something I love to do into something I dread. Yet the task of dragging him to the shoe store has always been inevitable because I can't send him out of the house in just socks. (Believe me, I've considered it!)
You're probably already aware of Saucony, a brand that designs and builds sneakers especially for kids and the unique needs of their growing feet. We've been a fan of theirs since my kids were old enough to walk.
But did you also know they make it incredibly easy to order from home, choosing the perfect size and width and have them delivered (for free!) just a few days later? (It's a back-to-school dream come true!)
I gave it a try to buy shoes for my son, and here’s how it worked.
First, I printed the easy-to-use size guide and measured my son’s feet to determine his size and width.
Next, we hopped online and I narrowed the choices to only those available in his size and width. He spent less than two minutes deciding on the pair he liked best, this Voxel 9000 Sneaker in navy/orange, and I bought them.
Every order from Saucony ships for free, arriving 3-5 days after they leave the warehouse. In my case, our order arrived less than 72 hours after I purchased them!
My son was excited to receive his shoes and we were both thrilled that we could shop from the comfort of home. So thank you, Saucony, for helping me quickly and easily cross shoe shopping off of our back-to-school list!
