The Top 10 Shoes for Back-to-School

So it’s back-to-school time (yes, already!) and which means it’s time to shop for everyone’s favorite school supply—shoes! We may be a bit biased here but there’s nothing better than a fresh pair of kicks for the first day. And we know you’ve been dying to hear to our top 10 picks for the school year, so without further ado, let’s get to it.

#1 Vans Ward

Vans. Vans. Vans. We can’t say it enough. This brand is HOT right now and the style that everyone is wearing is the Vans Ward. Known for its signature side stripe, these sneakers are an iconic look that pairs well with just about every outfit. The black and white look is our pick here but there’s something for everyone with a ton of new colors (and even some prints!) of the Vans Ward.

#2 Vans Asher

Did we mention that Vans is on FI-YAH?! Next up is the checkerboard Vans Asher. This simple slip-on sneaker is a cool throwback that adds a laid-back vibe to any look.

#3 adidas Questar

Burgundy is quickly becoming the next neutral. The rich hue is up-and-coming on the school scene this year and we’re loving the chill athleisure-inspired vibe of the adidas Questar.

#4 Puma Neko

Puma is back and better than ever this school year! Look for cool details in the Puma Neko like textured knits, bold lacing and partial bootie construction around the ankle that gives a sock-like fit. Check out even more Puma styles on!


#5 Nike Tanjun

If there was an award for MVP in athleisure style, if would have to go to the Nike Tanjun. This simple sneak has been a top seller for a few years now and doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. Wearers love the easy-to-wear-and-pair styling, the lightweight comfort and wide variety of color choices. New for back-to-school is this muted lilac color this totally on-trend right now.

#6 Skechers Energy Lights

For littlest shining stars, look no further than the Skechers Energy Lights. LED light-up sole, metallic silver upper and pink laces—this flashy high-top is what kids’ dreams are made of.

#7 adidas Advantage

This classic look from adidas is still going strong after experiencing a resurgence in popularity over the past few years. The iconic design, the neutral colors, the signature comfort of adidas—the Advantage is a style staple that belongs in every back-to-schooler’s wardrobe.

#8 Report Alexa

Our crush on blush hasn’t waned, in fact, its growing stronger this back-to-school season. One of the best blush looks is the Report Alexa slip-on sneaker. The cool cutouts and zippers give this sweet sneak eye-catching details that are sure to turn some heads in the hallways. Shop more blush sneakers on!

#9 Under Armour Charged Escape

For athletes looking for a sneaker to deliver style and performance on and off the field, Under Armour is a trusted go-to. And the Under Armour Charged Escape is no exception. This year’s updates include a knit-like upper for ultimate visual interest.

#10 Nike Benassi

So easy to slip on and go or slip off and relax, sport slides are a must for any back-to-schooler. Whether it’s for after practice or around the dorm, stand out in the rose gold metallic Nike Benassi slides.
