August 18, 2022

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, that time of year where you have a million to-do shopping lists and don’t know where to start. Kids grow super quickly, and if you’re in the market to buy your child a new pair of shoes, we’ve got you covered. No need to shop around—here are six great pairs of back-to-school shoes that will withstand the constant wearing, plus will score you some major cool points. —Jennifer Cox

Inspired by the original Popsicle flavours, the junior Reebok Classic Leather Shoes Grade School ($65) are all about trendy nostalgic vibes. The brightly coloured leather reminds us of the sweet taste of summer, while the side stripes have a melted ice effect. Your child will feel like they’re unwrapping a Popsicle every time you peel back the quarter logo.

The Microspec Max sneaks from Sketchers ($60) has extra comfy cushioning for a great fit plus sporty good looks, too. It has a lightweight design and features a mesh and synthetic upper with stretch laces and a visible Skech-Air air-cushioned midsole. The outer sole also has reliable traction.

The Fila Sandenal Kids ($65, at Browns Shoes) comes in a myriad of cool hues and shades to complete any look. They are made of faux leather and can withstand loads of wear and tear, and the thicker rubber sole and cushioned interior will keep your child’s feet comfortable and supported for hours on end.

The Asics Contend 7 ($49, at Foot Locker) is a great shoe for girls. They are made with mesh layering to keep little feet fresh and ventilated all day long. The toe stitching ensures durability, while the rubberized outsole offers solid ground grip when they run around.

For a more sophisticated look, check out the Kensington Treklite Print from Native Shoes ($90). A cool take on their classic Chelsea boot, it features an upper that’s water-resistant and easy to clean, as well as elastic side panels that stretch. The removable foam insole is ideal for optimal comfort. A Treklite thermoplastic rubber outsole is for strong, grippy traction to tackle all kinds of weather.

Vessi’s Kids Weekend casual shoes ($75) come in four cool colour combos, and are not only waterproof but they’re made from vegan materials and are machine washable too. These amazing kicks will provide your little ones with comfort, support, and dry feet all year round.
