Back To School: Girls’ Shoes & Backpacks 2011
We have a lot to work with this season. Whether your daughter wants to sport a fashionable pair of fall boots, or wear a comfortable pair of flats, there’s sure to be a perfect pair to fit her wants, and your budget.
This style easily makes the transition from season to season, with slight variations from jewel and bow embellishments, metallic uppers, to more classic looks. These shoes will definitely give parents the most “bang” for their buck—girls in any age range can wear these comfortable, versatile flats with anything from a pair of jeans, to skirts and dresses.
