Famous Footwear provided a gift card for our shopping trip. All opinions 100% my own.
Back-to-school shopping is well underway with many students getting ready to arrive back in school soon. Our area still has until after Labor Day but that doesn’t mean we don’t hit the shops for all the hot back to school shopping deals at all the popular stores.
If you are shopping for school shoes than look no further than one stop shop Famous Footwear, selling all the top brand name shoes in styles we adore.

I took my kids school shoe shopping a few days ago at Famous Footwear, which is where we always shop, since they have everything from athletics, to dress, boots, even socks and backpacks for boys & girls.
After glancing through the Famous Footwear Back to School lookbook my kid’s knew exactly what they were shopping for.
Nike Flex Run GS: This bright blue shoe was a must-have for Gav as it is his favorite color, the neon green shoe strings topped it off. We appreciate the extreme lightweight comfort this shoe provides, and breathable mesh fabric so his feet can keep cool. The shoe is flexible, perfect for active boys in the gym, playground or for sports. The thick groove traction will provide gripping power.
Gavyn wore these for about 2 hours after buying just to see how he liked them. He says they are the most comfortable pair of gym shoes he has ever had.
They are so lightweight he doesn’t realize he has shoes on. He says his feet also stayed cool plus they are stylish! Great shoe for this back-to-school season.
Sketchers Lite Swirlz: My Zoe is a Sketchers girl. She loves the fun designs which are often glitzed up, making them perfect for our little girls. The Sketchers Lite Swirlz is definitely a vibrant shoe that will be wonderful for the gym and outdoor activities. This athletic shoe offers a shock absorbing midsole, cushioned insole, and a thick rubber outsole with traction. She adores the pink color with yellow shoe strings and yellow around the outsole. Online it says this is a lime color however it is more yellow than green.
Zoe also walked around with these for about 2 hours to see how well they fit. She says they fit her feet nice and are comfortable. We chose a ½ size up from her normal size which is normal for Sketchers shoes for us – I feel they run a tad small. This is a fun sporty shoe with sparkly effects from the metallic fabric underlay and comes with an additional pair of pink laces. A girl shoe indeed!
