{Starting the Year off on the right FOOT-New Balance Giveaway}

*This Givewaway is now closed*

We hope your kiddos started the year off on the right foot!  Which leads us to this GIVEAWAY!  The Crafting Chicks were lucky to get to sample some NEW BALANCE kids shoes to begin the new school year.  Becky’s little girl got these beauties (ABOVE) in black, pink and silver.  I love that they come in bright, fun colors that kids love!  Since kids are constantly on the GO-why not give them some great shoes to run circles in!  My little guy gets to sport these cool gray and green ones…I think he likes getting new shoes almost as much as me!  So it’s a win-win…great shoes for their growing feet and a cool, sporty look they will love!

Here are some other details of these shoes….

New Balance 688 – Perfect for the active kid on the go, the New Balance 688 offers the support, comfort and cushioning Moms and Dads look for, in a bright, fun package that kids will love. The 688 is a technical running shoe featuring ABZORB cushioning and a fashionable upper design in a variety of pop colors. Available in lace or alternative closures. MSRP: $44.95 Youth, $34.95 Infant. Visit NEW BALANCE for more info.

And NEW BALANCE is giving away a pair of these kids’ shoes to one of our lucky readers!  Check out their site and leave a comment on which color combo you would choose for the little one in your life…they even come in infant sizes…how cute would those be?!

  1. Beth Marrs says

    I would get the purple/silver ones with the multi color shoe laces for my 5 year old daughter!

    Or the green/black ones for my son!

  2. Kristy says

    Oh my goodness. I’m so excited about this giveaway. I was already planning to get my little guy some New Balances this fall, so this would be perfect! I’d really like them in all gray so they’ll go with everything. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

  3. Sarah says

    I LOVE LOVE the orange and grey combo! My son needs a new pair and these are the ones we have been looking at!

  4. sandy sh says

    The red/black/gray ones look pretty snazzy!
    My grandson might think I was the best grandmother EVER if I won these for him..lol!
    Thanks for the chance.

  5. Lesley P says

    I’d love to get some grey and green kicks for my two year old. I’m sure his current shoes are about to melt from all the running! Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Amie Kirk says

    Definitely Gray and Green for my son! I also LOVE that New Balance offers different widths. It is SO hard to find WIDE shoes for my son in the stores! Thanks for the chance to win!

  7. DeAnna T says

    The navy and red. I love that color combo, hides the dirt but gives its a zing of color!! NB’s are great shoes!

  8. Jeanne says

    We love New Balance–we all have wide feet and NB shoes are the best fit for wide feet! The boys’ favorite colors are black, silver & red! Thanks!

  9. Cathy says

    The pink and grey! I love grey shoes for kids. To get to her afterschool program, my daughter walks a small dirt path. Although it is not very far, her shoes get so dirty so fast. Grey holds up to that dirt!

  10. Sarah says

    The blue with orange and silver is so cute! My little guy is so excited about sneakers this year. He wants to wear them all the time!

  11. stephanie miller says

  12. sarah B says

    I like the bink and white
    The gray and white
    And the purple with rainbow
    There are too many to pick just one

  13. Norma Taylor says

    My sweet little grandson would love the grey ones with the orange soles and laces. He would have so much fun wearing them!

  14. Diana says

    I love the green and grey one for boys. I bought my son a similar style last year of new balance and thought the price was steep but those dang shoes lasted forever on that toddler! The neon green is so fun!

  15. Lana says

    I love New Balance shoes! I would have to pick the 688 collection in different colors for my daughter and the 632 collection in the white, navy, and reds for my son. Both of my children need new shoes! It would be so cool to win one of them a new pair of shoes! Thanks for all the inspiration and a chance to win!

  16. Melissa Tilley says

    I have to pick the ones you son has. My 5 year old LOVES green and he would LOVE these, too! Great giveaway!!!

  17. Tami says

    my kindergartner wears her tennis shoes everyday because of the rocks on the playground, she would love a new pair!! I would choose purple/silver with the rainbow laces, so cute.

  18. Lisa says

    Oooh! Definitely the Blue with Yellow for my guy! He likes colors that “look fast” and yellow is his favorite!

  19. says

    My daughter would love the purple with rainbow laces, but I would like for her to have the pink and black ones!!! All of them are pretty darn cute though!

  20. Haley G. says

    I can’t decide whether to pick a pair for my son or my daughter…..if I win I’ll make a final choice but I like the white with green and silver n.b. 400 for my daughter or the n.b.688 in gray and green for my son.

  21. Rochelle says

    So hard to choose since I have one girl and 3 (almost 4 boys) with different styles. But I would say the gray and green for one of my boys.

  22. keri paddock says

    I need the cute pink and black ones for my little grandaughter ..she has to wear special insoles and good quality shoes because of some of her health problems. She is two and growing and keeping her in shoes is hard for her parents!

  23. Winnie says

    My boys love New Balance shoes! All the colors are great but we are always partial to grey/blue or grey/red.

  24. Melinda T says

    Both my girls have wide feet, so wide width shoes are a must! I like the new balance 688, the silver w/purple! love that it has stretch laces, makes it easy for my girls to put their own shoes on! Thanks for the chance to win an awesome pair of shoes!

  25. Jamie says

    My son would love the silver with blue and yellow. Besides the fact that they look cool, he would love the “no lace tying”. He thinks tying shoes really slows him down:)

  26. Andrea Morris says

    I love them all! My 6 yr old son would probably love the red/silver ones the most!! SO dang cute. I love the no tie as well.

  27. Amy N says

    If I could only choose one it would be the silver with pink and green – in a size (big kids) size 2 =)

  28. Jessica Peterson says

    I would love the black and pink pair for my little girl! She wears size 6. I hope we win!
