#MyVictory Back to School @FamousFootwear

I was compensated for this post, though all opinions are my own.

I was given the opportunity this past Sunday evening to go to Famous Footwear for a great Back to School event.  Having two growing teens, both with what I term "boats for feet", getting shoes can be a challenge.  So, I love it when I have the time to just look around and find what we need.  Fortunately, Famous Footwear had items that would fit both of my children (and me) in styles that they would both appreciate.

Operating remotely, my son had me pick out these shoes for him:

A nice pair of addidas sneakers with day glow yellow sole & laces.

My daughter was too agreeable to most of the shoes I showed her.  But I think these came out as my favorites:

A funky and bright pair of Asics Gel running shoes.

Right now Famous Footwear is having their BOGO 1/2 off sale.  The cool thing about that is that you can include backpacks with shoes. So you can buy the shoes and get the backpack 1/2 off.  Or, if you're like me, you can buy one pair of shoes (I got my son's on clearance) and get a rain check to use for the 1/2 off pair later (until Sept. 14).   Given that Georgia is bringing back the Tax Free Days next month, I took the rain check to use then for possible shoes for my daughter (or me).

Also  while at the store Sunday, they had a Shoe Crazy event to help support a local charity (Lift Up Atlanta).  Three of the participants were given the opportunity to "shop" for 30 seconds.  They had to grab the box and get it to the table before grabbing the next box.  At the end, they got to keep the shoes they grabbed and Famous Footwear donated the value of the shoes to the charity.

I think they did pretty well and it was fun to watch them "shop".  They raised $784 on their shoe spree.  Congrats ladies!
