Summer Fashion for action kids

My 11 year old son is super active and sporty and he really loves only comfortable clothes. I need to look in the fashion for action kids section. But as a mum I like to see him dressed in pretty outfits. So it’s been a blessing to have been gifted amazing new active kidswear from the TV explorer and adventurer Steve Backshall range by Mountain Warehouse, an adventure backpack by Osprey and new Kickers’ shoes. Here’s Diego posing as my model for this unusual fashion shoot. 

Here Diego is wearing Steve Backshall Kids Trekker Convertible Trousers (Was £39.99 Save 50%Now £19.99), Steve Backshall Tiger Roar Kids Tee – Khaki (Was £11.99 Save 50%Now £5.99) and Cannonball Kids Walking Shoes (Was £29.99 Save 50%Now £14.99). 

What’s special about this range and the connection with Steve Backshall is that this fashion range is designed especially to encourage kids to get outdoors to find adventures rather than spending time in front of devices.

Here Diego is wearing Steve Backshall Grey Wolf Tee – Navy (Was £11.99 Save 50%Now £5.99), Waterfall Kids Shorts (Was £13.99 Save 50%Now £6.99) and Cannonball Kids Walking Shoes (Was £29.99 Save 50%Now £14.99). 

The clothes are resilient, always look good even after many washes and after being ‘mistreated’ in the mud and in tough weather conditions. This is Steve Backshall’s fifth collection with Mountain Warehouse.  

Here Diego is wearing  Kids T-Rex Tee – Grey (Was £11.99 Save 50%Now £5.99), Waterfall Kids Shorts (Was £13.99 Save 50%Now £6.99) and Cannonball Kids Walking Shoes (Was £29.99 Save 50%Now £14.99). 

For summer, the combination of graphic animal motifs (wild wolf, dinosaur, tiger) and striking colour ways on short sleeve t-shirts and cargo shorts, as well as fleeces, waterproof jackets and accessories make for a striking range perfect for the outdoors. Prices vary from £11.99-£49.99.

Here Diego is wearing  Steve Backshall Kids Trekker Convertible Trousers (Was £39.99 Save 50%Now £19.99), Steve Backshall Wilderness Kids Fleece – Grey (Was £29.99 Save 50%Now £14.99) and Cannonball Kids Walking Shoes (Was £29.99 Save 50%Now £14.99). 

This limited edition collection has been designed for children aged between five and thirteen, with the aim to encourage kids back outside and capture the spirit of adventure through design and functionality.

Here Diego is wearing the Marine Kids Waterproof Jacket – Mustard (Was £49.99 Save 50%Now £24.99) which is really bright and can be helpful when you want to identify your child in the crowd.  

I have read new research, commissioned by MountainWarehouse, that reveals that the top 5 “things kids want to learn” include how to make a den and how to build a treehouse. This special fashion range reflect this desire for adventures in the wild and pictures wolves, dinosaurs, tigers. 

Here Diego is carrying a Osprey red backpack. If you want to enjoy your holidays, you need to teach kids to be flexible and independent. The school holidays are perfect to start learning that. Summer travel is ideal as we move around with less stuff so kids can pack their ‘essentials’ and get going. The Osprey Red backpack is sturdy and practical with lots of pockets (which children love) and the red colour is great to keep an eye on the kids while at the airport or in a park filled with people. My son, who is 11 now (going 12 during the holidays), has been travelling a lot since he was born. He is a great traveller and has learnt how to pack his essentials in his own backpack. He is never been allowed to dump his stuff onto me so he is now used to pack less items than he would want to. Young people need to get away from screens and enjoy the outdoors so the Osprey range of packs will give them the same level of pack fit as their grown up counterparts! I might borrow it myself from Diego as I love it too (wink).

As an alternative pair of shoes to wear after the adventures have finished and more to go shopping or to church, Diego has tried the new Fragma Lace Teen by Kickers and absolutely loved them because they are comfy and soft inside. He could not help himself wearing them in the wild, though. I think he forgot to change them as they were very comfortable. 

Here are some of the key features of these Kickers: smart, stylish, hardwearing and functional, can be worn for school or smart occasions, Micro-Fresh technology ensures boots are odour-free for longer, Branded metal eyelet and iconic Kickers coloured tabs, Cushion foam footbed for added comfort, Classic-look moccasin toe, Quality leather uppers ensure all-day comfort.
