Besides the fact that we are an active family who loves to be outdoors and play, our pediatrician once told me to get the kids good quality, sturdy shoes.

I was researching some good options on a shoe website when I was offered, as a Fitfluential Ambassador, two pairs of ZigLite sneakers for the kids.

Naturally when I showed the sneakers on the Reebok website, they went nuts for ”cool wavy lines” and colors, but I was after performance and durability.

The features that appealed to me the most were:

*Lightweight mesh in the midfoot area that offers flexibility and ventilation (um, let’s prevent stinky shoes).
*3D foams for soft feel and cushioning.
*The ‘Zig 2.0’ bottom which provides improved runability, cushioning and flexibility.
*Durable cushioning.
*Angled flex grooves for natural flexibility during running.
*Heel plate for stability and heel-to-toe transition.

My son is a bit infatuated with his shoes and seeing that our daughter is entering her tween years (good gravy), she was happy that they look cool. My only suggestion to Reebok is that they also offer them in wide widths.

Finally, I love their ‘mantra’ about these shoes: “It’s time to play boldly. It’s time to be a Zig kid.”

Disclosure: I received two pairs of the Reebok ZigLite shoes for this review. All opinions are my own.

I sold sneakers for 5 years and Zigs are great! Love the pictures and the kids made great choices with those colorways!

Love them! I always try to get good quality shoes for the kids, too. I’ll have to check these out when they out grow their current ones!

My son has been asking for those. He loves the look of them.

I love those! How cute!! Good quality shoes are so worth it.

Cool pics and awesome shoes!

These look great. I’ve been trying to find the boys ones that aren’t too heavy. I’m not a fan of the particular brand they have right now…I find them too heavy. With all the running, jumping, and climbing good quality shoes are worth it.

Those are really neat looking!

I swear kids need great sneakers – they wear then almost every single day versus us adults that only wear them to work out. These look uber cool!

Tania Reuben November 21, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Kids growing bodies need good shoes… and these are cute to boot!

Angela England November 22, 2012 at 7:14 pm

I’ve seen these but didn’t know anything about them. Sidney said when he was playing basketball Reeboks were the only brand he would wear.

I had no idea about the Zig line. My son is in adult shoes now, but I will pass this along to family who have kids in this range for sure. Some of my young cousins would think these are super cool! And I love the cartwheel photo – what a great way to show the shoes!
