Top 5 Back to School Shoes for Boys

Head back to school with major color blocks on your shoes and you will fit right in on the court and in the hallways. This season, the hottest themes are customized sneakers, big blocks of color, skater shoes and retro styles. You can play it safe and hit the Converse All Star store at the outlet malls, or check out these styles for some new hot looks that are just as comfortable as they are stylish.

The retro styling and bright colors of the New Balance Backpack shoes are great everyday shoes, whether you're walking to school or hiking the trails on a fall weekend. Made with reinforced nylon, these shoes are built to last and stay looking great until you grow out of them or grow tired of them.

Michael Jordan may have retired from pro-ball in 2003, but his name, image and inspiration as Air Jordan live on. The latest Air Jordan b-ball high tops are made to be flexible, durable, breathable and have great traction so you can practice slam dunks with big air on the court and in your dreams.

#3 Vans Chukka

Vans aren't just for skater boys, surfer dudes and snowboarders in the off-season. Vans retro vibe looks hot anywhere. Wear them in place of casual dress shoes and sport 'em to class and around campus. We're loving the clean and classic design, snug fit and multiple color options.

#2 Reebok RealFlex

You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!

If you don't think that you'll be in a safe situation (for example, your parents try to kick you out, or hurt you physically or emotionally) than you should definitely wait to tell them. I think you'll know when the time is right. We can't tell you how they'll react, but I bet you can sort of figure it out from how they feel and act about these topics.  Remember, you are not obligated to tell anybody at all. It's personal. Wait until you're for sure ready to tell them. And when you do, tell them the way in which it's easiest. Get your point across, offer resources, reassurance, and give them time.

Hey guys, so I do kinda have a personal issue, but I need to tell my family about it. Truth is, I'm not even sure how they'll even react. Very few of my friends know, only the ones I trust anyway... I'm gay. Or at least bisexual. I kinda had a thing for girls, but that was a long time ago. I think I'm fully gay. I have a very supportive boyfriend, who loves me with all his heart. But that's not what it's about; it's actually coming out to my family, whom I know some of them are quite homophobic. Homophobia runs in my family. Sorta...  It makes my stomach turn when I think about it. I sometimes look into the mirror, look at myself and think if my conscience suddenly made me decide I was gay, or if I was born with it. Science tells us that we are born that way, due to lack of man chemicals entering a boys brain when in development. I feel like I've chosen it (even though I know deep inside I haven't) to be gay, probably because of my family almost forcing me into getting a girlfriend and such. I come from a Catholic family, to make things even worse. I'm like the only practising person in my family, but somehow I feel that they'll use my Faith against me if I come out.  So, should I just wait until I'm older? How do I know when the time is right? How will they even react? How should I even say it?  Please help!
