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.

Dear Dish-It I have a horse that I board at a local barn. I was really excited when I started going there because there are 3 other kids there my age: Riley, Lilly and Isaac,  who are all 14 (I'm 13). Isaac is the only boy, and lately some of my family have been thinking I have a crush on him. But I don't! I think crushes are weird and gross and honestly have never really had one. I consider him a friend, nothing more. But nobody believes me! Every time they see me texting someone they ask if it's Isaac. If I'm zoned out they ask if I'm thinking about him. But I never am! I know that I should just ignore them but its really difficult. I feel uncomfortable riding horses together or talking because I feel like it'll make people think I have a crush on him. I know my fam isn't trying to be mean but its really upsetting, and the more I get upset the more they tease me. I don't think they realize that I don't find the teasing nice or fun. And also im not usually a sensitive person so maybe this is a touchy subject for me? Thanks so much!  P.S. Riley and Lilly don't think I like him.

Well, I don't really know, but I am sort of insane too, but not in the same way. I have instead practiced my own opinion and been very philosophical since I bumped my head when I fell of my bike. So you're not alone, many people including mentally stable ones have imaginary friends. Even some shows are based on someone having imaginary friends. Like a show I used to watch when I was small, Alfons Åberg, yes, in later seasons he did get real friends but he was known for his imaginary friend. About that practicing magic thing, it seems a bit weird but then, there is not much difference from putting frogs, bug's blood and secret herbs into a cauldron from cooking French food. So I think you can discover your future from using cooking stuff to practice your 'magic'. "Insanity is not insanity if you would make a movie of it, and nothing exciting, adrenaline rushing or thrilling would happen in it"  -Me As you can see I have a very complicated opinion on it, maybe even the most. Oh, and you could be loosing your sanity or just having a time where this happens and everything is normal again. (And no, I haven't seen your previous discussions)
