Back to School: A “New Shoe” Guide

Row of shoes and boots on a wooden floor

It’s that time again. Summer is coming to an end and it’s that hectic time of back-to-school shopping. While you’ll be stocking up on school supplies, don’t forget about your (or your kids’) feet! Whether it’s the first day of kindergarten or the last semester of college, here are 3 styles you must consider investing in. Remember, quality is priority. You need it to last for at least a school year, right?

Sneakers With Rubber Soles

They’re already a staple of casual wear, but, more importantly, they offer more protection and stability than flip-flops, sandals, flats, or dress shoes. Canvas sneakers and leather sneakers are both common, but it’ll be up to you to decide what suits you best. Canvas is lighter and cheaper, but leather is more durable and a little more expensive.

Make sure you go for rubber soles. They provide grip and can handle all the movement you’ll be putting them though. Remember, shoe laces andstraps can adjust the fit as the shoe stretches out over time and laces can always be replaced.

Athletic Shoes

This is especially important for kids in the K-12 education levels. You have to consider recess, physical education classes, and extra curricular athletics. Unless you are required to purchase specific shoes (cleats, track spikes, dance shoes, etc.) you should invest in a pair of good athletic shoes. There are two main types to consider: running shoes and training shoes. There’s a common misconception that they’re the same thing, but they’re actually designed for different movements. Take a look at some of our Onitsuka Tiger™ shoes.

The obvious differences will be in the size and the tread on the sole. Running shoes, in general, tend to be a little bulkier because of the extra padding. You’ll find more arch support and a rugged sole that should extend up the toe and heel a bit. They are intended to grip different terrain and are specifically designed for forward motion.

On the other hand, training shoes tend to be on the slimmer side, have a flatter sole, and a lighter tread. They’re not intended for long distance running, but geared for more repetitive movements like weight training or aerobics.

 

 

Dress Shoes

There will always be dressy functions to go to at any age. Most ladies will invest in a few pairs of shoes. Men, on the other hand, may need some convincing. Invest in a good quality shoe that you can wear to multiple occasions in multiple outfits. You don’t have to wear that one pair every single time, but having that go-to option can really save some time if you don’t have much of it. Men may stumble upon the whole “leather sole vs. rubber sole” thing. At this point, it’s all about personal preference and how formal the occasion is. Generally, the consensus for male dress shoes is that rubber isn’t very formal.

Men, if you’re not into dress shoes, opt for some leather loafers or classic leather sneakers. Tip: if you decide to go with sneakers to a dressy occasion, save the crazy colors and funky laces for another day.
