Hey Moms & Dads! Back to school is almost here – are your kids ready to rock the halls in the latest styles? We asked our kids’ merchandisers Jennifer and Georgia for the hottest fall looks, and here are their top picks.
Out of this World.
What they’ll love: “The future is now! According to experts, we’ll be able to set foot on other planets in just a few years. These Mega Blade 2.0 styles are perfect for the job! The royal blue style has a great color pop, and the silver black look is perfect for the hot metallic trend for Back To School 2015. With an easy slip-on, Z-strap design and these way-cool ‘blade’ shock absorbers, he’ll be leaping in the air.”
What you’ll love: “Easy-close straps, a non-marking outsole, and loads of comfort features for little feet: from the soft fabric lining and padded tongue and collar to cushioned comfort insoles.”
Athletics that Rock Comfort and Cool.
“As back-to-school shopping kicks off, boys are taking a walk in dad’s shoes or pulling from their older siblings with mini-me versions of their lightweight athletic shoes. Athletic remains the lead category for back-to-school. Flex Advantage’s FlexSole shock absorbing lightweight midsoles and ultra-flexible traction outsoles will keep him active on the playground – and the 3D printed toe overlay and reflective lace and side-striping details exude the cool factor on the Nitrate. And don’t forget the gel-infused memory foam: he won’t want to take them off!”
Sporty Metallic Coolness.
“Metallics in the fashion world have become a very exciting trend. It gives apparel and footwear pieces an edgy, fun look. Skechers has added a piece of their own with an exciting new line in the girls’ division. The Shoutouts are mid-high and lower profile sneakers for girls that feature metallic textures and fun metal embellishments. Gunmetal and Gold stand out beautifully, but at the same time can be considered clean and classic. Shoutouts – Zipsters rock studs and zipper hardware, while Shoutouts – Shorty Shouts has unique quilted side panel treatments. Both these looks are on a cool sporty skate outsole. The collection provides something fresh and exciting that an older trendy Skechers girl will love and ‘shout out’, FASHIONISTA!! Very cool!”
So-Cute High-Tops: from Bling to Boucle.
“Little girls love rhinestones, bling and sparkles. The new Skechers Twinkle Toes High Top collection has it all! These cool sneakers provide a fun look to any outfit. Our signature rhinestone toe caps and light-up features continue throughout the high-top category, but also have trend-right elements. Metallic textures and fun hardware are new to the collection and all can be found on Shuffles – Heart & Sole. And navy is the new black! It can be paired with classic jeans for a casual look or with a fun skirt to add flare.”
“Another trendy element that fits perfectly on a Twinkle Toe high-top is boucle, such as on Chit Chat – Sweet Seekers. Multi-color boucle textures, pink eyelet sparkly trim, a satin bow and heart charm are all combined to give this high-top a feminine, girly look. Plus one other special feature on this Limited Edition style: gel-infused Skechers Memory Foam! What little girl wouldn’t love this in her sneaker collection? Perfect!”
Comfort with a Pretty Twist.
“Comfort and fitness is a huge trend that’s being followed by many departments in the fashion world. The styles found in the Skechers Girl Sport collection include flexible outsoles, Skechers Gel-Infused Memory Foam and comfy textures. Bright colors are a great trend which Skechers covers in a fabulous, girly way. On the Skech-Air look, girls can have a fun bouncy outsole which provides comfort and also stand out style, such as on Skech-Air – Jumpabout.”
“A variety of colors and patterns help cover every type of girl and can meet any BTS need. This collection covers both lace uppers for a sporty older look, as well as bungee uppers for quick closures to help out the younger girl, such as on Skech Appeal – Ziggy Zag. These looks can be sneakers for everyday school needs, afterschool activities or gym shoes.”
