Is anyone thinking about back to school yet? Today we are.

Here we are, half way through the summer. That means it’s time to start talking about back to school. Ack, too soon??

Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of summer left.

But today we teamed up with Rack Room Shoes to talk about our favorite back to school shoes.


I buy these sneakers every year for my boys for the school year

For the last four or five years, THESE NIKE DOWNSHIFTER SNEAKERS have been my go-to shoes for my boys. Up until this year, I’ve always chosen the ones with velcro strap closure, and it’s the perfect shoe option for kids who can’t tie their shoes yet. Or even if they can, it’s nice to have a pair they can toss on quickly before school.

This year, B chose a pair of NIKE AIR MAX sneakers for school. These don’t have the velcro strap, but the laces are nice and sturdy so they’re easy to tie and won’t get knotted easily.

I always choose THESE SNEAKERS FOR SCHOOL because they’re sturdy, well made, super comfortable, and are easy to wear. They always last the whole school year!

Also I love that this one style of shoe always comes in a ton of different colors because my boys get to choose their color of shoes that reflects their personality!

I found the perfect pair of lightweight everyday sneakers

I’ve also been looking for a pair of new sneakers for myself — a pair I can wear for everyday occasionally and also for exercise.

I found these adorable ADIDAS SNEAKERS from Rack Room Shoes, and they’re so perfect. They’re slim and sleek, super comfortable, and have good support for exercising.

If you’re looking for a good, lightweight, comfortable, everyday sneaker, THESE ARE THEM.

I paired them with some black leggings and a thermal for a cute, everyday athleisure look, and I love how they looked. Also it was the most comfortable outfit ever.

    Children at this age do not bother much about the importance of education. For them it will become important when the time comes to write a dissertation, which is easy to write if is with you. So go ahead and see how everything will be easy in the future.
