Best Kids Shoes for School

Tiffany Larsen| 27 Jul, 2021

It’s back to school time! Fall is just around the corner and great shoes are essential for making a statement and keeping your children warm and dry. Fall shoes are hard to choose - with the fall weather up and down, it can be hard to find the right shoes for the right day and have them still look super stylish. We’ll go over what to look for in a good school shoe and show you some of our favorites in this article.

What to look for in Kids School Shoes


Comfort is #1 when looking for school shoes. You don’t want those little toes and feet to get squished and uncomfy. On the flip side, you don’t want them too big that they cause blisters. For sneakers and closed toe shoes, a thumb length at the top of the shoe should be sufficient in size. For sandals, be sure to get the width right.


Of course, you want those shoes to make a statement! Especially on the first day of school. You want to create a cool outfit and keep it looking great from head to toe. Look for shoes that she naturally gravitates towards and keep an eye out for others in similar color and style.


You want school shoes that are going to keep your little one on their feet and stable throughout the day, without worrying about bumps or falls. Look for shoes with thick soles and great arch support.
