Kids’ Back to School Shoe Guide for 2022

When do kids go back to school?

Labor Day has often been marked as the return to school. Late August and early September is typically when kids and parents scurry to get those last-minute items for the new school year. Time is running thin to stock up on all your back-to-school items, including a new pair of shoes. Check out what ShoeMall has to offer for boys’ and girls’ shoes, available in colors and prints your child will love.

How many school days are in a year?

A typical school year consists of about nine months or 180 days. ShoeMall offers all kinds of durable shoes that your student will love regardless of if they’re entering elementary, middle, or high school. For those hot and humid early fall days, we recommend Teva kids’ sandals, Birkenstocks, and Crocs. However, when it comes to those chilly winter months, you’ll want some Skechers, Stride Rites, Bearpaws, or Ariat boots. Don’t forget rain boots for those rainy days either!

How do you clean kids’ shoes?

Cleaning kids’ shoes is just like cleaning adult shoes. Here are a few tips for using a washing machine to make any kicks look good as new:

1) Remove the laces

2) Pretreat the shoes with a mild liquid detergent and a soft-bristle brush or cloth

3) Place the shoes in a garment bag

4) Put the washer on a delicate setting and a cold-water cycle

5) Let the shoes air dry and refrain from putting them in the dryer

Shoes made of leather or suede are not meant to be machine washed, so a good hack to try is toothpaste. Grab an old toothbrush and some toothpaste and scrub your kids’ shoes. After scrubbing them, give them a good rinse and let them air-dry.

How do I know what my child’s shoe size is?

Children’s feet grow in spurts and they may require new shoes every few months. So before purchasing a new pair of shoes, we recommend measuring your child’s feet to ensure you buy the correct size. Here is how we recommend measuring:

1) Get a foot ruler or just a regular ruler and place it on an even floor surface

2) Have your child step evenly on the ruler and take measurements of BOTH of their feet in inches; use the longest measurement for determining their shoe size

3) Add approximately a thumb’s width to the actual length to ensure ample wiggle room for toes and room for growth

4) Use our kids’ shoe size chart and find out what size we recommend based on your measurement
