We asked employees around our corporate office to share some of their favorite Famous purchases for themselves or their families. They responded with everything from personal picks to first-day-of-school fashionistas. Check out what they had to say and see their selections in action!
I bought these Skechers for my 5-year-old daughter, Gemma. She is just learning to tie her shoes and these are a great pair to practice on, plus she’ll be able to wear them with her uniform to kindergarten. And she loves the color and sparkles!

My wife is 7 months pregnant and had been complaining about her flat sandals hurting her feet and her back lately. She didn’t want to give up her entire sense of fashion, but needed something with a little more support while still being stylish, so I bought her a pair of Nike Tanjuns. After a couple days of wearing them, she was happy to report that they were the most comfortable shoes she’d ever worn and went out and bought a second pair!

The last time I visited a store, I noticed some cool Converse shoes and tried a couple pairs on… Then I couldn’t decide which ones I liked better. Relying on my superpower of rationalization, I convinced myself that the only way to truly advance in life was to purchase both. I seem to have a lot of Converse… I blame the Ramones.

I wanted to get my daughter some quality athletic shoes that would (fingers crossed!) get her through the school year. I looked to my go-to brand, Nike, and of course they delivered with the Nike Tanjun in the perfect shade of hot pink that any little girl would adore. I couldn’t be happier with these! They’re lightweight and very well cushioned, not to mention as cute as can be.
