New Balance and PEANUTS® have released a new co-branded kids collection for the fall. Available in infant, pre-school and grade school sizes, the collection features some of PEANUTS®’ most popular stories; It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and A Charlie Brown Christmas, using New Balance’s signature 574 running shoe.
We checked out the Thanksgiving Style for girls. It’ s an adorable beautiful chocolate brown suede with pink and yellow accents and features Snoopy and Woodstock playing in leaves. There’s a yellow furry tongue and the insole has a black and white PEANUTS cartoon inside –which features Lucy trying to tie Linus’ sneakers.
Each shoe has EVA cushioning in the mid-sole and heel and a solid rubber out-sole for support. Choose from laces or a velcro strap. Sizes range from infant up to grade school. Suggested retail prices are: $43.00 for the Infant; $53.00 for the Preschool; and $65.00 for the Grade School sizes.
The sneaker fit my toddler daughter perfectly and provided good support for her growing feet. This is her second pair of New Balance Sneakers – her first sneaker worn this past spring and summer (purchased by my inlaws) were from New Balance.
PEANUTS® Sneaker samples were provided by New Balance for review purposes.
