Back-to-school shopping is always an exciting time for every student. When I was in grade school, it meant going to Famous Footwear for two standard pairs of shoes: gym shoes and a pair of black or brown dress shoes that followed my school’s strict uniform code. Now that I’m in college, it still means Famous Footwear, but it also means tons of choices and brand-new fall styles. As I enter my senior year at St. Louis University and begin my very last back-to-school shopping season ever (sniff, sniff), I know I have to make it a great one.
When I was 10 years old, I remember experiencing my first shoe victory. My mom found a pair of reddish-brown Dr. Martens Mary Janes at Famous Footwear. I thought the shoes were adorable and my mom thought the price was even better. I felt like a million bucks walking down the halls on my first day of the 5th grade. I wish they still fit!
Just because I’ve “grown up” doesn’t mean I can’t have back-to-school shopping fun! Since Famous Footwear is having their BOGO 1/2 Off Sale, I’ve set my sights on two amazing pairs. When a deal is that good, you just can’t pass it up! I plan to get one pair of classic shoes and one pair of wild shoes to spice things up. I’ve got my eye on the Steve Madden ‘Heaven’ flats in black patent and the trendier Madden Girl ‘Hoops’ tuxedo flats in leopard. I love wearing comfy flats around campus, and since they’re stylish, I know I’ll still be looking cute. I can’t wait to put my best foot forward this school year!
