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.

Okay so basically I used to go to this school and I met some of the people who I wish to be life long friends with. Problem: All of them go to a different school Problem: I go to a dumb boarding school and only get to spend 1 day and a half with them when i come back on fridays before I leave to go to school on Sundays. I really hate this school too. My sister graduated high school from here and my other sister is in her last year here. After this year I'm going to be all alone at this school. I'll have to be going here for the next seven years since its a middle and high school and I'm only in middle school. Plus my sisters are the best students there. Every time I tell people I'm the sister of Stephanie and Siri,they automatically have high expectations of me. But mainly,I just want to know how to keep in touch with my best friends. We can't even have phones at school so I can't talk to them during the week. [s:sm3/1jw0]

I understand how hard this must be. Because I should probably take this advice too.. I would try and focus on school lessons and ignore others. Don't be afraid to join a club! If you go to one that interests you then you might meet someone with common interests. I hope you get through this.
