For a third year in a row New Balance have partnered with Mabel’s Labels for an August promotion to offer a free Mabel’s Labels gift pack with purchase at participating retailers, while quantities last. Both SKU’s are available in various colours and mom-approved quality and fit. They are made with a mix of leather and mesh upper package, Abzorb cushioning and a non-marking, rubber cup outsole. MSRP ranges from $39.95 for infant/pre-school children (sizes 2-5 and 5.5-10) to $54.95 for youth (sizes 7-10.5). They are also available in width sizes.
For infants, pre and grade schoolers, the 689 Kids Collection offers kid-friendly colours with traditional New Balance quality and fit. My boys each received a pair of the boys’ shoes shown above. They have been perfect for my active guys, and I love that Griffin is able to put his own shoes on and off because of the easy velcro straps. They both say that are very comfortable, and Griffin feels that his new shoes make him run fast, but that is yet to be determined, lol. The shoes are very light, so it is possible his speed has increased!
I love the promotion with Mabel’s Labels because shoes are something that often do get misplaced or mixed up at school, and you can be sure to keep from having to replace them by using the labels. It’s great that New Balance recognizes the needs of parents and kids and made this partnership!
