It’s August which means school supplies shopping is well underway here. I have the main things like their books but I still need to get the boy new tracksuits and runners for crèche as does my eldest for school and after school activities.
So to get ready for the back to school rush I’ve teamed up with Lifestyle Sports to tell you about their offers instore & online this season
*30% off selected back to school essentials. Runners, tracksuits and more*
*Selected new season backpacks (including football & rugby team backpacks) from €20*
*Up to 50% off selected footbal boots*
I made a little collage just to give you an idea of some of the bits you could get for back to school time. There are lots of tracksuit bottoms on offer which you can never have too many of with kids I find. Also tons great brand runners for kids and busy parents…nothing beats a comfy pair for school runs.
The mini Nike backpacks aren’t on sale but they are so cute I had to show you all and they are an absolute perfect size for preschoolers!
I got my eldest daughter the Adidas black leggings for her drama class since she somehow manages to get holes in black cotton leggings within a couple of wears.
I got my son a gorgeous Adidas track suit set for €39 and the littlest girl a cute track suit also by Adidas for €28. These weren’t on the offer but still good value for the quality of them, nothing beats a classic Adidas track suit 🙂
I also picked myself up a few bits. I recently started going to gym classes so technically I really did need a new pair of runners and I love comfy gym gear and runners for the busy mornings and school runs….mum’s need back to school gear too you know 😛
I always buy my good sports runners from Lifestyle Sports because I love how they have the runners in different categories for example runners labelled ‘training’ are specifically for the gym as they are more flexible while the ‘stability’ ones are for people running with flat feet like me! It just makes it really easy to see what runners you can choose from.
They have a special treadmill and camera in store to tell you what runners suit you best. I got that done last year when I had started running so I was looking at the stability range again last week until the guy at the runner’s section said I should go for the training labelled runners as the stability ones aren’t flexible enough for gym workouts. He said the training ones have a higher back too which is why my normal running runners were slipping off at the back while doing certain exercises.
The guy there was actually so helpful and stayed with me about half an hour to find the right pair for me. Now that’s good service! I ended up getting the Skechers Memory Foam Flex Appeal see HERE….they are like walking on air and I noticed a huge difference in my Monday workout…no more slipping at the back yay!
I also got a gorgeous Millie & Gym top that was reduced to just €12. I plan to get a pair of leggings next time too. See I often wear gym gear for school runs too, they are just handy to throw on and so comfy.
So whether it’s you or the kids that need back to school wear Lifestyle Sports is a good place to start for hard wearing clothes and runners for the school year ahead. You can shop in one of their 600 stores or online at www.lifestylesports.com
