Back To School Sneaker Guide
Back to school shopping means new kicks, and this season is all about sneakers. Sneaker culture is bigger than ever—with everything from athletic tennis shoes to stylish sneakers taking the main stage. Kids (and adults) are dressing them up or down, meaning these comfy shoes are the perfect back to school footwear purchase that can go from class to after school activities with ease.
One of the most well-known sneaker brands is Nike, popular for their high-quality athletic shoes, clothes, and accessories. No matter what sport your child wants to play, or if they just need a comfortable sneaker to wear everyday, Nike is a solid option. From running shoes to court shoes to popular styles like their Air Jordans, these shoes are durable and ready to be worn every day. Their well-known swoosh logo and “just do it” slogan set their products apart, and their products are available in a wide range of prices to fit any budget.
Most known for their affordable and adorable canvas sneakers, Keds is a brand who’s sneakers are loved by kids and parents alike. A classic white pair easily goes with any outfit or uniform, and a fun print can stand out from the crowd. They even have a specific line that meets school uniform and dress codes to take the guesswork out of finding a pair your kids will love and their school will approve of. With shoes for babies, little kids, big kids, and even parents, Keds is a great option to add to your back to school shopping list.
What sets Puma sneakers apart? Their casual and athletic shoes are known for comfort and quality, and sport the popular Puma animal logo. Their shoes often also feature the popular and trendy gum sole. Like the fierce animal on their shoes, kids will love playing sports or strutting down the hallways in these shoes that provide both support and comfort. Go with either an active or casual style, or go for a pair of sandals or slides for days when toes can be free.
White converse high tops are at the top of kids’ lists this year. These shoes, along with the various other colors and prints from the well-known brand, are versatile and comfy. Plus, they’re easier than they may seem to maintain. When the canvas begins to get dirty, you can clean them up with just a damp cloth and mild soap. These shoes go well with every outfit from jeans to skirts and are light enough to throw in a gym back or drawstring bag on-the-go. These sneakers do have minimal arch support, but inserts can be added for improved comfort and support.
Most known for their original sneaker style, Adidas shoes are well-loved with their infamous three stripe or trefoil logo. Arguably their most popular design is their classic white sneaker with a colored three-stripe logo, but this popular brand offers shoes in a variety of styles and designs catered to activity or style preference as well. Their vintage styles are also very popular as well with a loving nod to trends of the past. Kids can wear these sneakers everywhere from P.E. class to movies with friends.
Vans are the old-school skater sneakers loved for their versatility and simplicity. These flat bottom sneakers are popular choices to wear with jeans, dresses, school uniforms, and more. With a variety of colors, patterns, and styles to choose from, it’s easy to find the perfect fit for any fashion preference. These shoes are loved by kids of all ages, so both your little ones and your teens will rock them with confidence.
