Every kid’s favorite school supply is new shoes, of course! And we couldn’t agree more that there’s no better way to start the school year off on the right foot than with some new kicks. We pulled together the latest trends in back-to-school shoes from our biggest brands that are sure to be crowd pleasers with the school-age set.
For fans of the sporty look, top brands like adidas, Nike and Under Armour are the way to go. The adidas Samba is a throwback style that still reigns supreme today, while the Under Armour Swift is a newer brand that’s growing in popularity by the minute. For the true athlete, the Nike Tiempo Rio cleats are ready to take the field at a moment’s notice. Tie it all together with an easy to pack, easy to carry drawstring backpack, like this one from adidas.
Classic styles with the latest features are sure to complement every school-age rising star. The Nike Tanjun has been a fan favorite for some time now, but new graphic prints make it more exciting than ever! We’re also loving the Converse Street Mid. It features the iconic Converse Chuck Taylor style but with cool slip-on no-tie laces for little guys on the go. And the Skechers Energy Lights high top features a unique LED midsole that has 11 different light-up options. Carry it all in a Nike Backpack so they’ll move to the head of the class in no time at all.
If you have a fashionista in the making, who likes to stand out from the crowd, these are the back-to-school shoes for her! Two new trends come together—emojis and patches—in the JCobrah high top from Steve Madden. You’ll be seeing these trends everywhere this year, trust us. If she’s more of the type who likes to let her clothing show off her style, the unmistakable classic look of Converse will really let her shine. We chose two of the hottest colors of the season with this mint Madison low top and metallic gold Chuck Taylor high top. Plus, she’ll love the subtle tiger stripe print of this adidas backpack to hold all her school essentials.
If she’s into dress-up, princesses, glitter and glam, these are the trends that’ll make her smile. The rose gold Skechers Energy Lights is an eye-catching look that is not for the meek. It features a LED midsole with 11 different light-up options but the real star here is the all-over metallic shimmer. The Nike Tanjun is a great everyday sneaker and is oh-so-pretty in this cool mint shade. She’ll really be able to express herself in the emoji print Skechers Chat Time high top with its signature Twinkle Toes light-up toe cap. And what girly-girl isn’t complete without a bold pop of pink? This Under Armour backpack is durable and packed with pockets, even a soft-lined laptop sleeve!
