My kid has giant feet. They grow like his appetite–nonstop. He can always use new shoes. With the school year just around the corner, Rack Room Shoes to the rescue! It is THE destination for your back-to-school shoe shopping and more!
We went to the newest Rack Room Shoes store at Legends Outlet, for their VIP event. As soon as I walked in, two kids in tow, we were greeted by welcoming smiles. Throughout the whole shopping experience, each salesperson was super helpful and engaged with my kids. It made me feel like they cared about everyone’s experience, even the picky toddler with the strange preferences.
Case in point, I left with a pair of shoes for my son because he was obsessed with the box it came in. I did tell him he could pick any pair he liked, my only stipulation being it had to be easy to put on, and they qualified. He chose these Skechers that are the perfect, water-resistant, casual shoe. It’s closed-toe, but has a perforated body to keep your kid’s feet feeling cool. The material is durable enough to withstand rainy days and wipes clean easily. (Yep, I already had to wipe it. Because, toddlers.) Best part? Velcro closure! They are easy enough for him to put on BY. HIMSELF. He’s never worn a style like them, but they easily pair with everything in his closet, and were more affordable than the other guys’ similar style. Mommy’s pick for him was a pair of Nike trainers. They are cushioned, lightweight, and have breathable mesh. Perfect for the playground and classroom when he heads back to school, later this month. Oh, they also have a Velcro closure! Are you noticing a theme in my kids shoe preferences? I always vote for “Making Life Easier” kind of shoes.
My husband was also in the market for new athletic kicks. I picked an almost matchy-matchy pair with our son’s shoes. These Nike Air Max Motion LW come in gray, black, and white. He wanted white, but he’s never had an all-black sneaker, so I went with black on black. Husband approved for the fresh look and comfort!
I knew I wanted a practical shoe for mom-ing, and a dressy shoe for Girls Night Outs. It did not take me long to make a beeline for the cutest, wedge sandals by Chinese Laundry. I struggled to decide between black or nude color, but settled on black. It goes with everything, right? They’re trendy and easy to walk in, with the perfect touch of feminine. The ankle straps have laced bows on them, and I’m a total total sucker for bows! I also couldn’t leave without some slip-on Converse shoes. I had been eyeing them for awhile; no shoelaces to tie and pairs well with denim. They are the key ingredient for that “effortless” cool-mom look. You know what I mean.
I love that Rack Room Shoes doesn’t just have all the on-trend brands your kids will want for back-to-school shoes, they have backpacks and
lunch bags, too! They make it easy to check off all the must-have items on your kids’ list, within one store. I got a stylish, Nike mini backpack for my niece. This aunt is hoping to score some serious cool points.
Rack Room Shoes celebrated their grand opening at the Legends Outlet location just last week. They are known for their everyday “Buy One Get One 50% Off” promotion on a variety of select styles. Additionally, the Rack Room Rewards® program gives special perks to members, from exclusive discounts and coupons to $15 in rewards for every $200 spent. I love that they also give back to their local communities.
Rack Room Shoes partners with the national non-profit organization, Shoes That Fit, to provide more than 200,000 new pairs of shoes to students in need. At the VIP event, they presented a check to Whittier Elementary. I love that they just opened and are already making a difference here in Kansas City!
Rack Room Shoes, thanks for putting on a fantastic VIP event! Moms, you have to take your kids here for the best selection! Run, don’t walk!
