Back to School With Reebok RealFlex

Since their launch of  ZigTech shoes in 2010, Reebok has been developing their RealFlex technology which supports natural movement of growing feet and is designed for athletes of  all ages. Some of the benefits of these shoes include ultra lightweight construction, good traction and the unique looking ‘zig zag’ soles allow for both horizontal and vertical support, to ensure comfort from heel to toe.

Toronto Mom Now was at the recent launch of Reebok’s ZigLite footwear for kids (they come in adult sizes too) where they also introduced new bold colours for their trusted ZigTech shoes and we can easily say new designs look good and feel great.

Reebok made sure their new shoes were parent and kid approved by getting children who attended the launch to try the latest ZigTech, ZigLite and RealFlex shoes out and fitness expert Jason Martin was on hand to get them moving.

Before exercising with the kids, Jason talked about the importance of sports, different forms of fitness and asked the children to weigh in  on how you can get fit and stay healthy everyday. One of his best tips was that getting kids to do an intellectual activity after exercising increases their ability to learn.

Another great tip from Jason Martin was an important friendly reminder we should all know, that you should always do warm up and cool down stretches when exercising.

After learning that the design of Reebok’s ZigTech, ZigLite and RealFlex shoes allow for more energy return than other sneakers, the kids were certain they could jump higher and exercise longer with them on.

if you are looking for back to school shoes for your kids that you can trust, we can tell you that Reebok’s kids shoes are a sure thing. Parents will love the care that has been taken to design well made, light weight shoes that are good for their kids feet and kids will love their unique and bold coloured designs.

You can stay up to date with Reebok on Twitter and find their latest collections at Sport Chek, Foot Locker and Reebok stores across Canada.
