Top 10 Shoes for Back 2 School

One of the hardest parts of getting ready for the school year is deciding on a new look. A new school year is an opportunity to express who we are and sport the brands we love. Over the summer, trends change and people begin to anticipate all that will come with the back-to-school season. We go from jumping in the pool to diving into the books; from swimsuits to school gear; from bike rides to backpacks. No worries, though, the fun is just beginning! School starting up again is an invitation to go back to your favorite sports and see your good friends. Throughout all of this busyness, you want to make sure you look good, feel good, and are rocking the latest trends. To complete your perfect school-day look, you’ll need the perfect shoe… or, if you’re a true sneakerhead, shoes.

To give you a much-needed head start to planning your Back 2 School look, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite casual shoes.

Get ready to walk the walk this school year.
