Here's Where to Shop Back-to-School Shoes for the Whole Family

"Back to school" isn't just for kids, rather it's a time for the entire family to reset and prepare for a new season. That may mean rounding up school supplies, organizing your home, and most of all, finding comfortable and stylish clothing that lasts longer than a few months. An outfit is never complete without the perfect pair of shoes, and TOMS has a wide selection for everyone in your family to choose from, no matter their age or student status.

Heritage Canvas Shoes

If you love the look and feel of classic TOMS, then this Heritage Canvas version from the Venice collection should be added to your cart immediately. It takes the flagship shoe to a whole new level with a stylish striped interior and extra-durable sole. Plus, they're made from vegan materials (not to mention TOMS donates a pair of shoes to someone in need with every sale) so you can feel good about your purchase. They're super comfortable and feature a convenient slip-on design that's perfect for anyone who's constantly on the go—we're looking at you, Mom.

Suede Ella Booties

Once you slip into these Chelsea-inspired booties you won't want to wear anything else. You might even find yourself adding both shades (brown and black) to your cart. While we love them for fall, this pair of shoes is so versatile you can wear them all year long for almost any occasion, making them perfect for parents, college students, and teenagers alike. Dress them up with a floral midi dress or keep it casual with skinny jeans and your favorite tee.

Leather Jutti Mule Flats

We all need a pair of shoes to keep by the front door for those days when we're in a hurry and don't have time to plan an outfit—and this black leather mule by TOMS is it. Trust us, you'll be sporting them during the school year and beyond thanks to their comfortable construction and simple style. Rock them with cropped jeans and a tank top while it's still warm outside, and as it starts to cool off swap the tank top for a cozy knit sweater.

Suede Leopard Print Flats

Whether you're a mom heading to the office after dropping the kids off at school or a senior preparing for your first career fair, this pair of leopard-print flats should be your go-to. They're made with soft suede materials and feature a unique cut-out design that provides more airflow than traditional flats for a breathable fit. Wear them with tapered dress pants and a blazer for a sophisticated look, or go business casual with dark denim and a long-sleeve blouse. And don't be discouraged if animal print isn't your favorite pattern; these stylish shoes are available in three other colorways.

Kids Double-Strap Sneakers

For young children who are starting school for the first time, you can't go wrong with these double-strap sneakers. With hook-and-loop adjustable straps, they're easy for kids to slip on and off all by themselves, and we have to admit we're a little jealous the retro-inspired print doesn't come in our size. Not only will they match almost any outfit you lay out for them (or that they choose themselves—they're big kids now!), the padded heel also provides all-day comfort and support.
