I can’t quite believe that the holidays are over and we are already back in the school routine. Adventures now have to be squeezed into the weekends and I’m already on the countdown to the next half term. This summer we’ve been Ready for Big Days adventures with GORE-TEX and Monkey’s feet have certainly done some walking!
It was love at first sight when he tried on his new Superfit shoes earlier in the summer. The tread and colour combination went down particularly well with my 6 year old Monkey son.
The shoes have a light sole and are made from waterproof breathable GORE-TEX materials, just what you need when having adventures. They also feature a soft flexible toe area which I really like to see in children’s shoes. You can step in puddles and not get your feet wet – trust me, this well-tried out to the full on our recent holiday!
It didn’t matter what the weather threw at us, Monkey was ready for Big Days adventures with GORE-TEX and his feet remained chilled out throughout our escapades.
Monkey has a G fitting on most of his shoes and these particular shoes did seem slightly narrower than the shoes he’s had previously. But with the velcro fasteners he hasn’t complained at all about them being uncomfortable in any way.
He certainly put them to the test over the last few months. He’s been tree climbing at Stowe.
Scooting all around the neighbourhood.
There have been numerous stick collection opportunities as always.
Although attempting to fire a cannon was a new one!
Monkey was certainly well prepared for some stream crossing adventures, making friends with strange woodland creatures and tracking down the Stickman.
Now where is my horse Daddy?
We’re ready for Big Days adventures with GORE-TEX whatever the weather, wherever our travels may take us.
The shoes have had to cope with all sorts of terrain over the last few months, along with all versions of a British summer. They’ve coped really well, left Monkey’s feet dry at all times and look as good as the first day he slipped them on his feet.
You can find out more about GORE-TEX and Superfit on their Facebook pages. We’re big fans.
