As a father to four young children, I improvise a lot. Tooth fairy missed our house? “It must be because your room was so messy.” No one to watch the kids while I dig the car out from under a mountain of snow? “Kids, read books in the van while Daddy shovels and contemplates moving us all to Florida.”
And as much as I love passing clothes down from one child to the next, I refuse to improvise on solid, quality footwear for my kids. Everyone gets brand-new shoes at the start of the school year, a time of year which to me represents fresh starts, clean slates, and possibility.I remember the thrill of going back-to-school shopping with my own parents. Lacing up my bright, new sneakers at the beginning of the school year felt exhilarating, and I looked forward to what the future held for me in my new classroom, with my new teacher. I want my kids to be energized with that sense of promise and optimism, too.
This year, New Balance helped the kids and I kick off the school year in style, with Vazee Rush V2 sneakers. These cool-looking shoes feature Rapid Rebound cushioning that power up every stride!
The moment they removed their new kicks from their boxes, my boys bounced around the house in them, emulating their best-loved athletes.
I recognized that familiar look in their eyes of excitement for the new grade to come!
The colorful Vazee collection proves particularly popular with kids as it effortly takes them from recess, to gym class, to after-school practice with ease! We chose basic black, but the line comes in an array of awesome colors sure to please everyone in the family.
I got in on the action with my own pair of Vazee sneakers, as I constantly have to run after these kids! These solidly-constructed, high-quality shoes give light, breathable support so we all safely enjoy our favorite activities year-round.
While you check off those back-to-school lists sent home from the kids’ new teachers, consider New Balance’s Vazee Rush V2 sneakers as this year’s pair of ‘indoor shoes’.
Watch your kids get excited for the new school year, with shoes that provide durable athletic support for all their running around needs, and in which they feel super-cool.
Guess who wants our family’s next pair of New Balance Vazee sneakers?
