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.

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.

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.
