Super Heroic Sneakers

Super Heroic, is looking to change the way kids play and think about self empowerment with a brand new line of running sneakers.

Founded by Nike’s former global design director, Jason Mayden, these sneakers are designed from the ground up with youngsters in mind. Mayden was inspired to start this project when he had a hard time finding active shoes for his child that weren’t just pint-sized versions of adult running shoes. 

Their shoe known as the Tumblr V1 Galactix features a unique design with a dual density midsole, rubber outsole, and sleek upper with a stretchy rubberized band for support. No more laces to come undone and trip over!

Check out this video of my daughter Elli unboxing her shoes:

The packaging is incredibly unique and fun. Each pair of shoes is stored in a shuttle-inspired tube that makes fun noises when twisted open. A backpack that morphs into a cape and colorful stickers are also included.

You can order Super Heroic shoes HERE for $80 in one of three colors; space purple, black, or blue.
