Green Your Back to School: Green Kids Shoes from Simple and Keen

Can you believe that back to school time is just around the corner. Usually, I am completely ready for school by now. However, with my new career in the works, writing several blogs, working as a virtual assistant for a fabulous client and still making quality time everyday for Eben and Mr. Sweet Greens – school shopping just hasn’t happened. Maybe this weekend?

Luckily, Eben’s new school has a strict dress code that only requires me to buy solid colored trousers, shorts and polo shirts. However, I think we will spice up Eben’s outfits with a little color – in his shoes.

I love, love, love Simple Shoes and Keen Shoes and since he is required to wear a non sandal type of shoe, we are going to focus on sneakers. And I must say Simple and Keen has a fantastic selection of hip and colorful kicks that are Eco friendly too! There are fantastic and fun colors and designs for girls too.

Are there particular shoe brands that you love to purchase for your children?
Have you found ones that last longer than others? Or are more comfortable?

I would love to hear your thoughts! Please leave your comments below!

    The only shoes we buy are Birkenstock and Converse. LOL I am a Birkenstock fan and have been for almost 15 years! I still have my original pair and just keep getting them resoled! I hate to buy leather, so having the option to keep a pair for years and years and just replace the sole on the old leather is wonderful!

    Hi Angie,
    I agree. I only have a pair or two that is leather and I have had both pairs for years and years and years. I love the idea of resoling them. Thank you for sharing!
