Father's Day faves chosen by the Dads in our team

We asked some of our very own The Athlete’s Foot dads to share their gift recommendations and what they’re most looking forward to this Father’s Day.

Steve, General Manager and dad to Max, Jake, and dog Archie

What’s your gift recommendation?

“The On Running Cloud is the ultimate versatile shoe. It’s great for day-to-day wear but equally as good for chasing my kids at the park.”

How will you be spending your day?

“Like every Sunday, my family and I will head to the park for some touch footy and soccer. Then we will spend the afternoon on Nintendo in a Mario Kart battle.”

Hamish, Head of Merchandise and dad to Barnaby, and Jessie

What’s your gift recommendation?

“If you’re looking for a great fit, try the Saucony Triumph 19. The cushioning from the Power Run+ midsole and lightweight mesh upper keeps the shoe springy and comfortable.”

How will you be spending your day?

“I’d like to think I will sleep in, but it will probably be like every other day with a 2-year-old and 3-year-old in the house. I’ll be up early and playing with the kids followed by a lockdown walk with the family for a coffee and croissant at our local café.”

Jason, Business Manager and dad to Lachlan, Sophie, and dog Rosie

What’s your gift recommendation?

“My go-to shoe is the Asics Novablast 2. They have a comfortable fit, and I love the lightweight, springy feel of the midsole which gives me energy when I run. Plus, the colours are great.”

How will you be spending your day?

“A great Father’s Day starts with a good coffee with extra hugs and kisses from my kids, followed by hot chocolate and croissant. Then out of the house for a long bike ride or walk with the family, including our border collie Rosie, exploring and enjoying the fresh air and morning sun.”

Byron, Burnside Franchisee Director and dad to Tessa, and Sophie

What’s your gift recommendation?

“I’d recommend On Running’s Cloudace. It’s a premium shoe with outstanding cushioning and support. I love to wear it running, but it also looks great as a casual shoe.”

How will you be spending your day?

“I will spend the day with breakfast at home with my wife and children followed by a day at the park playing several different sports.”

Mike, Buyer and soon to be dad

What’s your gift recommendation?

“The Hoka One One Clifton 8 has just had an update. It has a new and improved fit, so it feels great from the first wear. The shoe has a sleek upper and plenty of cushion underfoot, so it works for any distance.”

How will you be spending your day?

“Father’s Day this year will be different for me, as my wife is expecting any day now. I’ll either be sleep-deprived looking after both the bub and my wife or helping my wife to all the little things while we’re still in lockdown – coffee and breakfast will do me just fine either way.”

From everyone here at The Athlete’s Foot, we wish you all a happy Father’s Day.
