Ahhh, the first day of school! Fresh backpack over the shoulders filled with crisp new folders and sharpened pencils… new friends to be made and old friends to greet again after a summer off. And for that first day outfit: a front-porch picture-worthy outfit is a must! For style that makes the grade, a fresh pair of kicks truly makes the whole ensemble. We’re walking you through our favorite first day looks with sneakers for the little tykes who are truly having their VERY first day of school all the way to those campus-cruisin’ undergrads.
It’s her first day of big-girl school and the nerves and excitement are building (p.s. she’ll be fine, Mom!). Make sure she’s set up for success with comfy and cute sneakers for the school year ahead. The adidas Rapida Run features Cloudfoam memory foam for the ultimate support and can you even handle that pretty ombre color pattern?! Match it up with an athleisure-inspired outfit that will score her an A+ in style and get all the likes on your Instagram.
Grade School Cool Dude
Back-to-school shoes can set the tone for their whole school year style. A brand like Vans is just the thing for your grade-schooler. Get him a style like the Filmore sneaker that oozes cool with its trendy side-stripe and its mixed suede and canvas upper. Pair these classic kicks with some denim joggers and a fun, printed tee for a signature look on his first day.
High School Style 101
High school style is all about looking cool without looking like you’re trying too hard. For this, we love the Nike SB Solar Check. It’s lowkey cool (who doesn’t love Nike?) but still on-trend with this dark red color (so in right now!). He can lace them up with any look and he’ll be ready to ace the year.
College Campus Fashionista
Some of this season’s hottest sneakers feature unique materials and earthy color tones for casual comfort that’s still totally trendy. The best of these trends come together in the Rocket Dog Champo with its corduroy-like material and dusty rose color. Pair them with raw-edge hem denim with a little bling to draw attention to those kicks!
