Marilyn Monroe once said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Since I like to live by that motto when I go shoe shopping for myself, it’s only fair to apply that same thought process when purchasing shoes for my kids. It’s back to school time, so I say, “Give a kid the right shoes, and he/she can conquer the school year.” Or at least some homework during the first few months! From hi-tops and glitter ballet flats, to athletic sneakers and slip loafers, the choices are endless for your child to walk into this school year with confidence and style.

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite shoe picks for boys and girls. They’re so cute you’re going to find yourself saying, “I wish those came in my size.” I know I did, especially with the glitter hi-tops.
