24 Stylish Pairs of Kids’ School Shoes to Take Them from Classroom to Playground

This week I will be shopping for back-to-school, and all I can say is that I wish there had been kids shoes like these when I was growing up. I’m not just talking about their cool looks, but also many of their quality and durability.

Don’t get me wrong, I loved my white huaraches when I was growing up. But a lot more attention is being given these days to the active child’s need for comfort and durability as well as to her individuality when it comes to kids shoes.

Kids need comfortable, durable shoes for school. They need them for running, jumping, rolling on the grass as well as for sitting in class. And it’s nice to have a little style thrown in, too. Enjoy this gallery of 24 pairs of back-to-school shoes (12 for boys and 12 for girls) that make me wish I were a kid again.
