New Balance shoes: Perfect for Walking and Training

As I am on my feet a lot, having comfy shoes are important to me. The quality of shoes, and how long they last determines if I will buy the brand again. Due to my previous experience of how long New Balance shoes last with everyday active use, I trust the brand. Recently, I got a pair of WX711 Heathered Cush+ New Balance shoes to use and I have been enjoying wearing them for walking and training. I like this pair because its forefoot flex grooves allow me to move freely.

We love TOMS shoes because they are perfect for the summer, as it is lightweight and comfortable to wear all day long. These shoes go well for any occasion.

These shoes have the TOMS elastic V for easy on and off.

UNEEK Sports Sandals

UNEEK is the latest innovative concept from KEEN. Its design is simple, as it only features two cords and a sole. I love that it is comfortable for long wear, and is very light and airy. The non-stretch, water repellent polyester cords in the sandals perfectly hugs to the natural shape of our feet allowing us to easily flex and move; when we remove the shoes we can see the imprints of the cords for a few seconds :)

Making Old Things New: Up-cycling shoes

Giving a new look to my old belonging is something I enjoy doing. I have done many projects such as recycling containers to make other crafts, giving old chairs a new look with fabric, using fabric to make yarn and many more.

Change the world with Chooze

chooze shoes
Inspire spin style Chooze
My daughter enjoys wearing these unique pair of colourful shoes from Chooze.  These shoes are comfortable to wear for long periods of time.  The durable outsoles make it a wonderful pair for active play.  They have a variety of choices and beautiful designs of shoes for boys, girls and women.  
There is a reason why these shoes are sold in a pair that matches, but are not the same because Chooze are created to make a difference and impact a change.  The profits from the sales of Chooze are invested in anti-poverty loan programs that enable women in developing countries to lift their families out of extreme poverty.  This is more helpful than giving a donation, as the company believes this gives a hand-up rather than a hand-out.
chooze shoes
This perspective of being different helps us make a positive impact to the world.  These shoes allow children to express their creativity and individuality with confidence.  This initiative helps those in need to better their lives.  It also reminds us of how grateful we should be for having the freedom to make choices because many people in the world don't have this basic human right. 
The company has also thought of a way they could do their share and help the environment as they make their shoe boxes out of recycled cardboard and present it to us has "art boxes" so children can reuse it by colouring and making it their own.

Redesigned Old Navy store at the Toronto Eaton Centre

Women's section
We were invited to check out the newly remodeled Old Navy Store at the Toronto Eaton Centre.  The store was brightly redesigned.  The layout made it easy for us to look and shop for things we want and need :)  
Men's section
I liked how the store was spaciously and neatly divided into women, girls, boys, men and baby wear.  There also had an expanded maternity assortment section.  
Maternity and toddler baby section
I was really attracted to the fashionable collection of costume jewelry at the Old Navy store.
Fashion jewelry
I think this redesign is productive because we can find things easily and shop without waiting to ask for assistance.  Having the products easy to browse is helpful when shopping with young children and especially when we are limited with time.  
Shoes for all different seasons

The fitting rooms and the cashiers are in the center of the store, which is convenient and a good meeting place when shopping with friends and family members :)  Old Navy has "pop in" rooms, which is a thoughtful part of the design as we can quickly try the clothes on our children before buying it and don't have to wait for a fitting room to become available. 
Children's section
They also have an interactive play space for the little ones.  At the event my children spent time in this area colouring, which kept them happy and busy. 
My children were making sure to colour inside the lines for a contest
The new signage in the store is clear and lets us know when there are promotions, values and other things happening at the store.  Old Navy has everything from clothes to accessories for the entire family, which makes it easy for us to shop throughout the year.

Get ready for winter with Pediped

Get ready for winter with reliable boots for children from Pediped. We want our children to be as active as they can during any weather, especially in winter. To be active and enjoy, I think it is important that children have proper footwear.

Pediped meets all the things we as parents demand :) and their shoes are approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association. Pediped footwear are made with quality products that will keep our children's feet protected, comfortable and warm. Pediped has a variety of boots that are stylish, so children will not refuse to wear :)
I like that Pediped puts a lot of thought into their products as they only make footwear for children's growing feet. This Flex Cruz Pediped boots was my son's first choice because it has his favourite colour red. These boots are waterproof and withstands temperatures as cold as -20C. The cushioned insole makes the boots feel real cozy and protects the feet from frostbites. My son eagerly wears these Pediped boots as the weather has been chilly and windy. 
These shoes are lightweight and durable, which allows children to be active. I found the Flex Fit System in the boots useful as it gives an additional insole that can be inserted for a snug fit and can be removed as our children's feet grow.
I am very happy that these boots have slip-resistant flexible soles, which are not stiff so children can move their feet naturally without trouble. It is also easy to clean and maintain the boots.  

These Pediped boots are made with a combination of water-resistant leather and nylon material. I am glad that the boots have velcro, which makes it easy for my little one to put and remove on his own especially at school. The fabulous collection of Pediped boots can be bought at these retail stores or online.

Pediped footwear for boys

Pediped footwear system is separated into three age groups.  0 to 24 months have original first shoes.  9 months to 3 years the grip-go shoes are for active toddlers.  2 to 8 years flex is for confident walkers.  We tested the comfortable stylish Pediped flex shoes for boys.  

My son enjoys wearing this Flex mercury Navy, Red, Silver shoe because of the way it looks, its comfort and it's his favourite colour.  This shoe has a cushioned arch support and soft rubber sole that provides flexibility and promotes healthy foot development. All Pediped shoes, except for sandals and select boots come with the 2mm insole to customize to each child's feet. The child starts with both insoles, then as the feet grows we remove the flex 2mm insole to extend the length of time the shoes can be worn. It is easy to place and remove the soft insoles. The placement of the insole depends if there is space on the width or length of the space in the shoe when the child is wearing it; to test the space feel all around the shoes and place your pinky finger on the back and side.  It should be a snug fit not tight.  Remove the insole as the child's feet grows, I find that with little children the shoe size changes at least every six months :)  I like this neat idea because if the shoe is not snug fit children could trip wearing big shoes.   

One side of the shoe's tongue is attached to the shoes, so it doesn't get pushed when children are trying to wear the shoes on their own.  The velcro strap makes it easy for young children to keep the shoes securely on their feet. These flexible, lightweight shoes are machine washable. The upper part of the shoes has breathable mesh like material.  The shoes are flexible and helps with natural motion.  The sole of the shoes are natural rubber, don't put it in the dryer; just let it air dry.    
The shoes are designed in USA and made in China. American Podiatric Association accepts all the cute Pediped children's footwear.
It is easy to shop online as the products are separated by gender and age group.  We can also shop for the shoes at these retail stores worldwide. 

Don't throw away as The Little Gym is launching "Big hearts little shoes" a shoe donation campaign.  They are collecting used or outgrown shoes to benefit Soles4Souls an international charity that collects shoes and distributes to people in need around the globe.

Twinkle Toes review and giveaway

Twinkle Toes: The Movie is inspired by the best selling Skechers girls' shoe line.  The movie comes to DVD on July 31st.
My children enjoyed watching this fun filled movie.  The sweet adorable Twinkle Toes character overcomes her fears and learns to celebrate her individual energy.
The movie is filled with music, friendship and laughter that parents and children will enjoy.  The story is about courage, self-expression and finding the "sparkle" within.
This animated movie star Grace "Twinkle Toes" Hastings is a fashion icon for girls under 13 years.  
Here is synopsis from my daughter.
Twinkle Toes didn't like dancing in public because of her past embarrassment of making a mistake while she danced at the spring dance.  Although she didn't like dancing in public, she loved dancing in private.  Her teacher realized Twinkle's passion and signed her up for dance classes.  
Twinkle Toes decides to raise money for her school by doing a dancing show.  After this fundraise they were able to save the school from closing.  
Both my children enjoyed the animation and songs throughout the movie.

If you like a copy of the DVD, please leave a comment by July 20th on this post.  The giveaway is open to everyone in US.
Please follow my twitter or Facebook or leave the email address for me to contact if you are the winner.

Footwear for children
It is important that we put proper footwear for our children to avoid foot problems later on.  I am curious to find out about Pediped footwear.  
It seems like pediped's primary concern is the wellbeing of our children's growing feet as they say their shoes are "the next best thing to bare feet."  Usually when children complain of foot pain we think "growing pains", but we need to think about this a little more because wrong footwear can cause foot problems.

Oofos footwear

Oofos footwear is very comfortable and ideal to wear during this season.  These slippers are available in men and women's sizes.  Oofos footwear are anti fatigue and lightweight.  It would be lovely to wear for a causal look.  The slippers have reduced body impact so it can be worn for long periods of time, for shopping and walking.  The underfoot arch support feels good on the feet.  I don't know of any flip flops that orthotics can be inserted to, so having this built in arch support is helpful.  I like that the footwear is flexible.  

These slippers are water resistant, which would be wonderful to have by the swimming pool and wading pools.  It doesn't sweat so keeps the leg well snug in the slippers without slipping off.  The slippers are safe to wear when we are walking, taking the children to the park and playing in the park as it doesn't slip off easily like other flip flops and open sandals. 

I thought it is interesting that this footwear is machine washable in cold wash, I didn't try it because it is easy to wash by hand if necessary.  The slippers cannot be put in the dryer and it doesn't need to either.  Temperatures over 150F might shrink the shoes so don't leave it in the direct sun; which we must remember :)
These durable oofos ooahh slides come in mocha brown and black.  Oofos also has ooriginal thongs that are available in pink, orange, brown and black.  Oofos is sold at all these places in the USA and these countries.
