When it comes to back-to-school footwear, I’ve learned that it’s better to buy my kids shoes in darker colors because they won’t show dirt as easily. There’s nothing worse than buying a brand new pair of white sneakers only to see marks on them after just one day of wear! My son is pretty hard on shoes, so buying him a quality pair is important because we need them to hold up through lots of wear & tear. He picked out this Nike Tanjun printed pair that he can wear to gym class & on the playground – they have just the right amount of traction & support for all his activities and a graphic modern print that he declared “cool”.
During back-to-school and into the fall, it’s the perfect time to update your sneakers and swap out that traditional white pair for something in a richer, darker hue. Converse has always been a favorite of mine because of their classic style, so this Converse Madison OX pair is great for wearing now with skirts & knit dresses and later in the season with denim & faux leather leggings. They’re the ideal transitional shoe for all your casual weekend looks!
My daughter loves to mix sporty & girly styles together, so she squealed when she saw these Roxy polka dot sneakers…with pink soles! We’d never tried this brand before & she was happy to discover that they have a super-cushioned insole (similar to memory foam) + they’re a slightly wider cut, which is great because she didn’t feel like her toes were being squished when she walked. These also come in a chambray polka dot, classic white & gray linen (which I want next!).
We’ve been buying shoes at Shoe Carnival for the last few years & we’re repeat customers because of their huge selection & great customer service – plus, they have all the brands we trust at prices we can afford. Whether you’re looking for casual sneakers, athletic shoes or boots for the coming season, they have tons of options that your whole family will love!
