Sponsored Post: Can You Kick it?

In many respects, our shoes have a tough life. From pounding the pavements to taking a beating from the elements, it’s amazing that they last more than a couple of weeks.

As a general rule when buying shoes, you get what you pay for. Whilst you might think a pair of shoes is a bargain because they only cost £10 ($16), the truth is that they’re probably not going to last longer than a week, meaning you’re probably being sold a false economy.

Shoes, like clothes, are all about the quality of the manufacturer. We’ve all seen – and been tempted to buy – the cheap shoes on the high street. But if their price tag says they’re too good to be true, they probably are. Just as their cost is a fraction of the price paid for branded products, so is their quality, meaning you’ll get less value for money.

Built to last
Regardless of your situation, buying shoes should be all about longevity and value for money. If everything falls apart after two minutes, you will be forced to head back to the shops – spending more money on petrol, parking and clothes.

Paying a reasonable price for high quality, well-made items is the best option, and shoes like Kickers are made to last. Kickers shoes are made using the best materials and high-quality production techniques, meaning you can depend on them, time and time again. No matter what you put them through, the quality shines through. This is why Kickers has been such a big name in footwear for over forty years.

Raving Mad For It
Believe it or not, Kickers were even the shoe of choice in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s Manchester rave scene. Ian Brown and the Stone Roses were famous fans of the brand – and you know that they would have taken a fair bit of abuse on some of those dance floors!

These days, you don’t have to be a raver to enjoy a pair of Kickers – although they are still versatile enough to cater to this crowd. All you have to know is that shoes this good were built to last, and that makes them a wiser investment than budget sandals and throw-away flip-flops.
