The High-Top Converse – Converse Youth Boys’ Pro Blaze High-Top Sneaker

The thing about a classic high-top Converse is that they can be whatever you need them to be. A style statement? Done! Easy wear? Done (these are slip-ons). Whatever your handsome hunk’s preference or lifestyle, these won’t disappoint.

The Absolute Classic – Adidas Women’s Grand Court Sneaker

Frankly, you don’t need the back-to-school season to adorn these classic shoes. They’ve been a staple for all ages for years. And it’s for good reason. They can take you from day to night, from class to work and from school to a party without breaking a sweat.

The Checkerboard Slip-On – Vans Women’s Asher Checkerboard Slip-On Sneaker

There’s something about Vans that screams summer. More so when they swap their OG black-n-white to a pretty and retro shade of purple. So, if you want to keep the summer vibe going without compromising on style or comfort, these are for you.

The Basketball Sneakers – Puma Men’s Triple Basketball Sneaker

No, we haven’t forgotten about the grown-up boys. These Puma sneakers are perfect for the rising basketball stars. Especially the ones who want to look good, feel comfy and like having non-smelly feet (thanks to the blend of leather and mesh).

Here’s to a rocking return to school!
