The past few weeks has seen my bank balance groan at all the new equipment and uniform my eldest has needed as he started secondary school, school bag, books, pens and pencils, uniform and PE kit.
The PE kit has been the biggest outlay of them all, not only do they have indoor and outdoor PE kit which has to have the school logo on but they also need indoor trainers with white soles, and outdoor football boots and shin pads.
Jake has never really been one for football and so buying football boots in all new to me, not to mention shin pads!
But as if by magic I received an email asking if I would like to review some trainers from JD sports, I could pick out any paid or Nike trainers, for me or the kids, and as much as I would love, and desperately do need, some new shoes for myself I also thought this would be a perfect opportunity to get Jake the last bit of PE kit.
So I looked over at JD sports website, and browsed through the huge selection, there is trainers for every occasion, from lots of top brands. I looked through the Nike section, which has lots of exclusive styles which can only be found from JD sports, including the AirMax 1 with the visible air unit in the midsole, which are both stylish and practical offering great support and comfort. As lovely as these trainers are however, I continues to browse the section looking for Football boots.
I found some Football boots which looked great, there was a great choice of colours and styles and I finally settled on some Black and Orange Astro Turf boots which I was sure would be perfect.
I then noticed that JD sports did a great range of accessories too and had a good selection of shin pads, so I was thrilled when I was told I would be receiving both a pair of trainers and some shin pads.
The shoes arrived quickly well packed and fit perfectly.
The famous Nike tick o the side is just enough colour without being too overpowering, perfect for school.
Jake loved them and instantly took them to test out, they are comfy to wear and he was really pleased with them, he gave them a thorougher testing and returned home with them covered in mud but pleased to report them passed the test.
shin guards have ankle protectors which are detachable, and are easy to put on and adjust.
JD sports website for future purchases!
We were sent a pair of trainers for free in exchange for a honest review of JD sports service.
