Women's adidas Originals Stan Smith -- White and Green

adidas Originals Stan Smith

True fashion never goes out of style, which is why the Stan Smith sneakers, though originally a favorite of tennis pros in the ’70s, are now a closet staple for everyone. A leather upper and rubber outsole provide durable comfort to last the whole school year.

Men's Nike Cortez -- White, Varsity Royal, and Varsity Red

Nike Cortez

Bill Bowerman’s first masterpiece – the Cortez – is a retro style perfect for your back-to-school look. The upper and outsole were built for traction and durability, while the midsole keeps your feet supported with a lightweight feel.

Men's Jordan Retro AJ1 Mid -- All White

Jordan Retro AJ1 Mid

The first AJ1 dropped in the ’80s with full-grain leather and the “Air Jordan Wings” stamped on the side. Since then, it’s kept the timeless look we love, but updated the rubber outsole with flex grooves to give you the durability and flexibility you need.

Men's Nike Air Force 1 Low -- All White

Nike Air Force 1 Low

The Air Force 1 has been a staple since it debuted as a basketball sneaker in 1982. Over the years, the shoe has stayed on-trend through various colorways and cuts, but one thing that’s remained the same is the iconic court style that’s built for a premium fit and feel.

Men's Nike Air Max 90 -- University Red and White

Nike Air Max 90

The running shoe created by Tinker Hatfield has evolved into one of the most iconic streetwear classics. Updated for modern style, the Air Max 90 is the perfect back-to-school sneaker. A padded ankle collar provides optimal comfort and support while a Max Air unit in the heel absorbs impact and makes you stand out among your classmates.

Men's Nike Air Max 97 -- White, Dynamic Yellow and Evergreen

Nike Air Max 97

The Air Max 97, inspired by earlier models, took the Air Max line to a whole new level. As Nike’s first shoe with a full-length Max Air unit, the 97 keeps your feet cushioned while the layered colors keep your shoe game strong.

Men's Vans Old Skool -- Black and White

Vans Old Skool

Step into the school year with style in this true throwback. Originally designed for skateboarding, the Old Skool quickly turned into a mainstream shoe. Its classic canvas-and-suede upper and the trademark side stripe complete your back-to-school look while giving your feet all-day comfort.

Men's Nike Air Max Plus -- White and Cool Grey

Nike Air Max Plus

If you’re looking for a shoe that’s all about the details, look no further. The Air Max Plus started as an experimental design in 1998 and has since changed the shoe game forever. This sneaker is wrapped with ribs for an edgy look and injected with Air technology for supportive cushioning.

Men's Nike Air Max 270 -- White, University Red and Vast Grey

Nike Air Max 270

The design of the Air Max 270 pays tribute to the original ’91 Air Max 180 with the exaggerated tongue and logo, but still brings a modern vibe with an updated look and elevated comfort. As the first Air Max shoe designed to be worn casually instead of for performance, the Air Max 270 is the perfect choice for an everyday sneaker.

Men's adidas Originals NMD R1 -- Black, Silver, White and Yellow

adidas Originals NMD R1

A breathable, flexible, and stylish shoe perfect for everyday wear, the NMD R1 was born from an inspired past and built for the future. This shoe has a tried-and-true silhouette and is the first lifestyle sneaker from adidas featuring the bouncy Boost midsole. Confidently stride into school with this popular Three-Stripe sneaker.
