With back to school season beginning, we have some shopping to do! And one thing my kids love to shop for is shoes! School shopping can sometimes be stressful, especially when you have to make sure you get the supplies you need. But getting the top picks of the best shoes for everyday wear and more importantly, the first day of school, is something special. My kids’ shoes are how they express themselves and I think so much confidence can come from new shoes for the whole family. We want to start the year off right and fresh, so we’re heading to the store to do some shopping! But what kinds of shoes are we looking for? Moreover, I’ll explain all of that and give you my kids’ top picks for the new school year!
The latest trends are not only some of the best shoes, but they really are so cute. I love that the classic look of the all white shoes or neutral color pairs of shoes is in style. Not only are they a timeless look, but they are so versatile and such a closet staple. But kids shoes for the school year don’t all have to be just the best sneakers. You can choose from a wide variety of shoes, such as mary janes, combat boots, rain boots, sandals if you’re in a warmer climate, etc. The top brands we have been loving this season are New Balance, Nike Air Max and Air Force, Converse, Dr. Martens and Adidas Superstar.
These are shoes that our kids will be wearing every day, so of course, I tend to lean more toward boots or tennis shoes over classic clogs, as they can be easier to slip in. A cushioned footbed, cushioned midsole, lightweight comfort, rubber outsole and breathable upper layer are essential for all day comfort. It’s essential to make sure they are shoes that the kids can not only last in all day, but for after school activities, as well.
Finally, gym class is a huge part of school. Athletic shoes are on all of our lists and it’s even better if the shoes can be worn all throughout the day, but having separate gym shoes totally works, too! The most important thing is that they are the right size. I know that sounds obvious, but kids feet grow quickly, so sizing up a half a size is generally a safe option. You don’t want to have to replace them halfway through the year and usually athletic shoes run a bit small, so this should help!

These are all so stylish! I really love the variety of looks that are in style this year.
Our kiddos have to wear closed-toed shoes to school every day. Between PE twice per week and recess every day, they are so hard on shoes! My boys get to pick their shoes and lately they always have Minecraft design or colors.
I agree first day back to school is special and having the right shoes and bag is so important love these ideas
These doo look like neat kicks! Back to school shopping was always a highlight as a kid
These are so much nicer than what my girls have to wear. These would be great for use out or school.
Super love the pair of jordans, they are the cutest ever!!! I will get them for the kids.
So many cute styles and colors! It’s always so exciting to get some new looks for the new school season. That was the only part I looked forward to haha
When I was at school we weren’t allowed to wear trainers or nice things like you’ve got here. Ours had to be boring black leather shoes, but I’d have much prefered some of these options x
Those are great shoes, they look so reliable and stylish. Thanks for sharing!
