We are a family that lives for the weekends. At least during the school year that seems to be the case, we spend our weekends together. We try to find things to do nearby our house that are fun and engaging for our kids but that also keep us all active. There are many brands I shop at but when it comes to shoes shopping Zappos always seems to be an easy fit.
Our girls always seem to find comfortable and fashionable selections that keep up with our weekend adventures. It’s extremely hot already here in Southern California so right now we’re doing a lot of sandal shopping for summer. This weekend we went strawberry picking at a local farm. There’s so many fresh fruits and veggies grow all around us so we use the opportunity to get out and have a little fun with our girls.
Growing up my mom taught special education at our local elementary school. We would spend our weekends going on adventures too and now as a mom I always look back at those moments with such fondness. To this day she is still a special education teacher and I have learned many lessons from my experiences volunteering and helping out in her classroom. In fact in high school I went on to again volunteer as a TA for the special education classroom. It’s always been something that has been a part of my life so I was thrilled when Zappos released their new selection of clothing and shoes specifically designed for their customers with special needs.
It all started with one phone call from a Grandmother who’s Grandson struggled to tie his own shoes. Zappos saw the need and set out to help Grandmothers and parents who were struggling to find the same.
The new line of products at Zappos are from the Zappos Adaptive collection. There’s an entire line of shoes and clothing specifically made for people with special needs all in one easy to find place. There are products for everyone form items that are tables for sensory to clothing that simple makes getting dressed a little easier. You can find out more in this video where they discuss how they really are the first retailer to design a selection of products for customers with special needs. It’s an important step forward and one that I know will make lives a little easier.
It’s nice when you can find stylish and comfortable clothing and shoes and Zappos has something for every member on the family. You can shop or visit their website today to learn more.
