As back to school season approaches, I take stock of my children’s shoes and see which ones they have outgrown and worn out so I know what they will need. I figure the basics they need are a pair of athletic shoes, a pair of casual shoes, and a dress pair. Let’s face it, most girls would also like to add 100 other pairs to that list such as a pair of sandals, a pair of ankle boots, a pair of tall boots, etc. Kids designer shoes are popular both because kids feel confident in their style choices and parents can feel sure of the shoe quality. Here are a few of the latest footwear trends for both boys and girls to match all the latest back to school fashion trends.
Top Designer Kids Shoes
It is so nice when you can find all the best in children’s footwear all in one place. That is why department stores and shoe stores are so convenient. They offer a variety of kids designer shoes such as Badgley Mishka, Golden Goose, Michael Kors, Sam Edelman, Kenneth Cole, Tommy Hilfiger, Ash Sneakers, Stuart Weitzman, Ivanka Trump, Burberry, UGG, Voltaire Kids, and Sydney Jordyn. They carry exclusive styles in these designer brands and they have new styles added every month featuring the latest footwear trends.
Then there are websites that provide top designed kids shoes too! The pro here is that there seem to be even more endless options for the latest arrivals and it is easy to sort and find sizes. The con with kids designer shoes websites is that you can’t try on the best styles in kids footwear. However, most feature good exchange policies. Many websites will offer Free Shipping on orders over $50! The other con with the wide selection of adorable shoes is that it can sometimes be overwhelming.
For online shopping, I suggest Zappos.com. They have Free shipping BOTH ways on kids’ shoes!

Leo also needed a dressier pair of shoes for band concerts and such. The KENNETH COLE REACTION Club Step loafers will come in handy for occasions where he may want to look spiffy. Penny Loafer styles are always a safe bet for kids who want to dress up but still slip on their shoes!
