Chicago Shops Ultimate Shopping Guide features Kickin' on page 69. Chicago Shops describes Kickin as one of the first in the country to combine maternity fashion and fitness.
The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that "Roscoe Village is a haven for kids and mom-to-be," and they featured Kickin' as one of the neighborhood's major draws. Here's what they said: "This store specializes in activewear and gear for pregnant mamas (and papas), along with organic cotton baby clothes. Racks of bright clothing - perfect for that prenatal yoga class - line the store's walls, along with cool maternity tees, bathing suits and jeans. For dads, there are high-tech baby carriers."
Kickin has made it to the LUCKY September listings. Check out page 387 of this essential shopping guide to fall fashion. At this sleek stylish shop for mom-to-be, score cool maternity wear like Seven jeans, Bloom shirts, and hoodies by Childish, plus goods for non-expectant browsers, like Ebaviva skin products and totes by Plank.
Shortly after Kickin' opened, it was featured in CS: "If you want to sport your baby-bump in style, Kickin', a new maternity boutique in Roscoe Village, has everything you need...The boutique is the perfect place for mommy-to-be to pick up clothes, books, gear and skincare products from cool lines....Nine months may feel like forever, but when you look this good, baby will be here before you know it.
Fashion & Lifestyle columnist Audarshia Townsend recommended Kickin' in her Mother's Day Gift Guide, based on celebrity mom style. Here's what she said: "If you're looking for a bit of Jennifer Lopez 'tude (aka The Diva), snap up the sterling silver necklace at Kickin' that actually doubles as a chew toy for teething babies. Because sterling silver is naturally anti-bacterial, it's safe for babies to put in their mouths. It comes in one, two or three rings."
Susanna Homan, executive editor of Michigan Avenue Magazine and columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times, loved Kickin's awesome selection of Mama's Jewels sterling silver jewelry because they are stylish and practical. 24/7 host Billy Deck loved them, too!

Chicago Magazine praised Kickin' in its Best for Kids issue, writing "Moms-to-be rave about the customer service from owner Trudy Robinson Foley and her staff. Foley has a strong interest in fitness and what sets her boutique apart is its small but excellent collection of workout gear....In keeping with her philosophy of helping moms feel good from the inside out, Foley offers free monthly "try-me" prenatal fitness classes, such as yoga and Pilates."
Kickin' got a shout-out as one of Chicago Magazine's "94 Boutiques We Love". Thank you, Chicago Magazine - we love you, too!
Kickin was included in Michigan Avenue Magazine's write-up on Roscoe Village. Here's what they said: Around nearly every corner in Roscoe Village, you're sure to find a stroller or four. The charming neighborhood attracts young couples ready to start families, so it's no wonder Kickin' is one of the most popular shops on the block.
Trudy and a few hot mamas went on NBC5's Weekend Today to show anchor Ellee Pai Hong and her viewers how to dress a baby bump stylishly all summer long. Ellee and Trudy are due about the same time, so they had a lot to talk about!
