Top 5 Back to School Shoes for Girls

Go back to school in stylin' kicks this season with lots of fun, inexpensive fabulous shoe styles to choose from. It was hard to narrow down our list to just 5, but we know your faves and those set the tiebreakers. So check 'em out and see if you agree that these are the 5 best styles on the market this season.

No. 5: Chuck Taylor Two-Fold

Converse All-Stars are here to stay. What' hot this year are bold, bolder, boldest colors. Like these two-fold convertable high-tops that let you pull-em up for a single color or fold 'em down for a pop of two-toned pizzazz. Pick up a pair of contrasting laces, pair them with mismatched socks and go crazy with fun color!

No. 4: Vans

"If you're having fun, you're doing it right," seems to be Vans' motto. While Vans runs a wide range of styles, we're still loving the classic slip-ons that come in single colors or cuh-rayzee designs. There's even styles for the divas among you in animal prints, glitter, sparkle and sequins, or cupcakes, owls and Hello Kitty prints for kitsch-enthusiasts.

No. 3: Hunter Boots

"They're just rubber boots," you may say. "Nay," we say. Look closer and you'll see stylish, practical 3-season boots that keep your tootsies warm and dry, have a super-comfy orthopedic sole, and make a great accessory to wear with knee-length skirts and tights, one of our favorite classic fall looks. Wellingtons, or "Wellies," have been around in classic green since 1856, but now come in many colors. Buy your Hunters with the cute sock liners, and fold them over the top for picture perfect style.

No. 2: Tom's Shoes

As most Tom's afficionadoes know, with every pair you purchase, Tom's will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need. The style and construction are inspired by the shoes Argentine farmers have worn for hundreds of years. We love their styles, their world-helping attitude and goals and the fit. Some teens tell us they don't wear well, which means they'll only last a couple of months at best, and others tell us they can get fairly stinky. Still others swear by Tom's for comfort, style and fit, and barely wear anything else outside of gym class.

No. 1: Superga Canvas Shoes

Celebrities, style editors and ordinary folks like you and me all like Superga canvas shoes. We discovered them through Lyss, teen fashion guru, and can't get enough of them. We hate to call them sneakers because you can dress 'em up or down, wearing them with jeans or a dress. They come in all colors and styles, including American flags, ombre (dark faded to light), and the hottest print this season, polka dots. With an extra strong, fully breathable, pure cotton, upper it's a lightweight, simple canvas tennis shoe with a rubber sole. They're machine washable and will age perfectly, just like your favorite pair of jeans. Bonus for petite femmes among you, they are finished with a 1.5" platform for extra height.

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
