Although there's still plenty of summer left, fall will be here before we know it. That's why it's important to start thinking of the beginning of the school year as soon as possible. Not only are clothes and supplies important, but the perfect shoes will make or break any outfit, and more importantly, need to last throughout the year. Even if you're not quite ready to buy them their back to school wardrobe, here are at least some of the coolest trends to follow for fall.
1. Knit Sneakers
Knit sneakers have been popular since Kanye first released his Yeezy's, but have grown increasingly in popularity over the years. You're probably even familiar with the sock like Balenciaga sneakers too. Well this fall, knit shoes for kids are more popular than ever before. Their comfort and breathability is are key elements that make them ideal shoes for the school year.
2. Metallic Shoes
Metallics are everyone's favorite new neutral. Their shiny appeal can help to dress up any outfit. The best part about metallic is that it can be incorporated in multiple styles like heels, flats, sneakers, and even boots.
3. Mid Calf Boots
Rather than booties or knee highs, this fall seems to be more about mid calf rise boots. This rise works great with jeans, but also pairs well with skirts and dresses! Being a little higher than a bootie gives them an edgier feel, similar to a combat boot. The best part about them, is that they can be paired with thicker high socks to add flair to her outfit, and to keep her feet extra warm when it starts to get cold.
4. Rhinestones and Sparkles
Fall is time for neutral, toned down colors, but that doesn't mean things can't sparkle and shine. Sequins are one of the biggest trends for fall, whether they're on sneakers, flats, or boots. Sequins, studs and rhinestones are now enveloping a lot of the shoes we're seeing for fall, including a lot from our own back to school collection.
Following the theme of statement pieces on shoes, bows are also taking over the fall. Our favorite look regarding bows are bows on flats to give your little one, that fun, girly element. However, depending on the type and size of the bow it can make a shoe more exciting, more innocent, or more bold.
