Back to School With Reebok: RealFlex and ZigLite Footwear

Reebok Shoes for Kids

We attended an event for Reebok’s new line of kids’ footwear and have all the details, just in time for your back to school shopping!

RealFlex Footwear

Reebok RealFlex kids’ footwear is a style of running shoe created with natural motion of the foot in mind, and a unique technology of 76 independent sensors built into the bottom of the shoe. The line was designed to help feet move and flex naturally while kids run, jump and stretch at school or at home.

As you can see in the images below, Reebok hasn’t forgotten to add fun into their new design- we’re crushing on these bold new colours and great designs- even when standing still, these shoes are full of energy!

The cool design was a hit with the kiddos at the event, and the moms were equally impressed with the lineup of foot supporting features these shoes boast, including “multi-directional flex buddies” (independant “nodes” that work together to promote natural movement and flexibility) and a surprisingly lightweight sole that moves and flexes with the foot and provides stability as kids play.


 “At Reebok, we are committed to creating product technologies that offer immediate benefits to the wearer. With the combined natural movement, lightweight and protective technology, in addition to its colourful designs, Reebok RealFlex kids’ footwear offers future athletes optimal playtime,” said Stewart Clark, Brand Leader -Reebok.


 The Reebok RealFlex kids’ footwear collection is available for boys and girls at Sport Chek, Foot Locker, SportsExperts and Reebok stores across Canada.

 ZigLite Footwear

 Launching this fall, Reebok ZigLite footwear was also an impressive option, great for busy kids on the go. ZigLite shoes are ultra-lightweight, thanks to ZigLite technology which makes for a lighter, sleeker shoe and increased energy return, plus comfy cushioning for growing feet.

The unique and colourful design of the ZigTech sole provides both vertical and horizontal support, ensuring comfort from heel to toe through the length of the shoe. The heel has been developed to offer traction as kids run, whether it’s for a school relay race or for a game of freeze tag.

 “With the attention to design and detailing that was put into the ZigLite Run footwear, the line is guaranteed to make kids stand out from their classmates,” said Christopher Clementoni, Reebok Brand Marketing Representative.


 I can attest personally to Chris’ statement above, as numerous people (both friends and strangers) have noticed and commented about the ultra cool shoes my 5 year old son was given at the event!

And how adorable are the ones baby G has- these too have been garnering lots of attention and I love that he has a great supportive shoe now that he’s a year old and taking his very first steps.

I founded Mums 'n Chums in 2009 after realizing that the area I live in was drastically underserviced as compared to surrounding areas for support and activities for growing families. Mums 'n Chums grew popular very quickly and I have been dedicated to nurturing that growth through frequent networking, social media engagement and in person meetups. By the end of its first year, Mums 'n Chums had close to 500 members and was receiving regular inquiries from fans outside of its service area, asking when we would be expanding to serve them as well. After much careful research and polling, I expanded the site in May of 2011 to cover the entire North end of the GTA (from Cambridge to Markham), areas I believe are still receiving far less attention than they deserve from other sites and family services. We also changed the focus from small scale local mom and tot meetups to more of an informative purpose, closing down our forum and adding several talented contributors to the blog. We do still offer several large scale family events per year, such as our popular Birthday Bash events and our Holiday Bash in December. Our contests have also become a member favourite, and we strive to offer amazing prizes from trusted brands like Babies R Us, La Roche Posay, Johnson's Baby and many more. In March of 2016, after months of work spent migrating all of the site's content to a new platform, Mums 'n Chums re-launched with its fresh, new look. The changes and expansion have proven a great success and we're still getting inquiries from several other cities within the Greater Toronto Area, whom we have decided to serve as well. I have built this site and its' reputation carefully and look forward to continuing its growth!
