Ascending Butterfly's 2 Cool 4 School Giveaway brought to you by:


When you were young, what was your style? Is your style the same now? Adults, teens and children may have very different ideas when it comes to back to school shopping. While mom wants durability, children want popular style and teens just want to be unique and wear something that reflects their own personal style.

If you could find footwear that was versatile, durable and definitely in style, footwear that is actually both toddler, kid, teen and adult friendly you'd snap it up in a heartbeat right?




Whether you are shopping for your skater boy, girly girl, urban cool, a preppy teen or somewhere in between, Zipz is your footwear solution!


About ZIPZ®:


ZIPZ® are removable and interchangeable shoes, like nothing you’ve owned before! Match any ZIPZ® COVERS with any same size ZIPZ® SOULS to create one of-a-kind mix and match shoes.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Handmade to ensure comfort, quality, and reliability.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Invented in California, Designed in the U.S. - I love that the idea for ZIPZ was born during a family BBQ! (The CEO's dad came up with the idea, and the family as a team went to work bringing his idea into reality.)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - By purchasing soles and tops separately you can basically match any top to any bottom creating a endless amount of shoe combinations. - While your child or teen may eventually outgrow their original sole size, I can assure you that they will NEVER get bored as there are a wide variety of covers in a great assortment of styles and colors!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Soles sell for $19 and covers sell for $34.


'Cambio tus Zapatos' means Change Your Shoes! Aren't these cool?

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - There are Zip-Ons, Lo-Tops, and Hi-Tops styles. and there are also Toddler T-Strap and Toddler 2-Strap styles available!


Spiderz Toddler 2 Strap

Aren't these Spiderz Toddler 2 Straps just too cute? I am a horror movie buff, and I so want these for Halloween! Me and my nephew are going to look too cute in our matching Halloween Sneaks!

My Take

While everyone's foot is different, I'm wide width (flat foot) coupled with a high instep so for me, I ended up having to size up a bit before I found the sole that worked well for me. Once I hit on the right size for MY feet, it's been a summer of love, love, love ever since. I love that I can find a cover for any mood I'm in. I started with the Skull Rose, CB Bandanaz, Jet Black, and Dragon Rose in the adult Slip on Style. (I'm definitely thinking of getting the Hi-Tops next, those definitely take me back!)

It takes a bit to get the hang of changing out the covers and I found it easier to put my foot on the sole first, and then zip myself in rather than zip it first and try to get my foot in (but that's because I'm wide width), but once you figure out which technique works best for you, you will be swapping covers every day!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - WIN IT! - Ascending Butterfly and our friends at ZIPZ have a very special surprise for 2 lucky winners! 2 winners will receive a completed pair of zips in their choice of style and size based on in stock availability. You can opt to select a pair for yourself, your toddler, youth/child, or teen, the choice is yours!
