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….
