If your kids are anything like mine, shoes are the last thing we buy when going back-to-school because it’s the one thing they are most picky about. It’s also the one item that gets the most wear and tear and that they seem to grow out of more quickly than they change their socks. While sneakers are the most sensible pick for the playground, they aren’t always the first pick for some kids that have been enjoying wearing flip-flops and Crocs all summer long. Ease into the school year with a fun pair of sneakers but also with a pair of casual dress-up shoes like boat shoes for the boys and ballet flats for the girls and a pair of boots that can be dressed up or down. With these three pairs of shoes in their closet, you’re sure to have the right pair of shoes for every school occasion — rain or shine!
