Your kids’ feet grow faster than your pocketbook, and you feel like you’re constantly either donating like-new shoes to friends or trying to get back a few precious pennies by selling them via consignment. Well, that’s about to change. The new subscription service, EasyKicks with Nike, allows parents to swap out a pair of sneakers as often as you want—for one straightforward monthly fee. Sound too good to be true? Keep reading to get the details.
What It Is
With EasyKicks, you can choose from a wide range of Nike and Converse sneakers (new styles are added every week) anytime you want. Available sizes range from sizes 4c to 7y—simply swap them out and return the old pair (unless it’s been over 90 days, then the shoes are yours to keep!). You can only have one pair at a time, but the new pair shows up before you need to return the ones your kid is currently sporting. There’s no need to worry about making shoes last longer than the fit allows, and it’s a great way to budget for shoes over the course of a year.
Why You’ll Love It
Not only will you no longer have to search everywhere for comfy kicks for your active kids, but it’s also an eco-friendly way to shop. Every box comes with a prepaid envelope, so you can also send back as many old pairs as you like for donation or recycling. So far, EasyKicks has donated 375+ pairs of gently used shoes to kids in need, has recycled 500+ pairs with Nike Grind (turning old materials into new apparel and even sports surfaces like turf fields, gym floors and playgrounds) and has managed to keep 800+ pairs of shoes out of landfills!
Available at easykicks.com, $20 a month (There’s no fee to swap out a pair, and there’s no shipping fee.).
