Back to School Bash Sponsor- Kohl’s. One Stop Shop for School Shopping! “Kids Shoes Review”


diclosure-review giveaway

The 2013 School year is here. The summer has flown by without me even knowing it. It doesn’t seem like Aidan’s been out of Kindergarten for an entire 2 months. He has though, and now heading into first grade. Adisyn, my baby girl, is starting preschool. This Mama is going to be an empty nester during the day, I will cry the first week- I KNOW it!


Kohl’s is a One Stop Shop for Back to School! They have EVERYTHING your child needs for that first day back. The best thing about it is that they have everything for your kindergartener as well as your older kids as well.


They have a HUGE selection of School Shoes, that aren’t only fashionable but also affordable. Those two words don’t get mixed around too much- stylish and don’t cost an arm and a leg. Even your “picky” teen will agree!

They have more ways to shop then one, You can shop by gender, the type of shoe you’re looking for, or by brand. What’s even better is after you’ve chosen what you’re looking for you can sort them by price! They are having a major blow-out on shoes, starting at $7!


The Shoes•

I always get my kids closed toe tie up shoes because they are still little. They have to have shoes that won’t come off on the playground or during gym. I had a blast looking through the website at all the shoes. They had so many brands to look through.


I ended up getting Aidan a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Street Mid-Top Shoes.


Both of the kids’ shoes came VERY quickly ordered from the website, within 3-4 days! If you order more than one pair (or more than one item), everything still comes shipped in the same box. I thought that was pretty cool.


These shoes come in 12-6, my son wears a 1 (he’s 6). I absolutely love the dynamic yellow mixed with the black. It just looks so dynamic and calls attention to them. Of course, I’ve always been a fan of Converse. They know how to make simplicity look amazing.


They ARE built not only for comfort but also built to last. They have a padded tongue and collar, so that I know he is comfortable during the entire school day. I absolutely loved how both pair of shoes I received had the laces already in the shoes!

The Converse shoes, however, DO not require tying, My son can just slip these on in the morning before school. This will make my morning ten times easier, because I’ll have to get two kids ready, snacks and backpacks together, and 2 separate buses to wait on.

You CAN fix these so that they can be tied. I WILL tie them on the days he has P.E. so that it will make it easier for him to run at full speed. The outsole is rubber so it gets awesome traction no matter what he’s walking on; linoleum, concrete, or tile.


The outer (upper) part of these shoes are made out of canvas. This makes it easier for his feet to get air and be able to breath. Last year when he would come in from school, I’d change him into play clothes and GOSH his feet stunk. It was because he sit there all day, played on the playground, and had P.E. without his feet getting any air.

Doesn’t he just look so adorable? He loves his new shoes! He can’t wait to start school so he can wear his shoes and show his “new” friends that he hasn’t even met yet.. LOL.

I overheard him talking to my daughter. He said “Adi, I’m cool and you’re not. Cool is black shoes and you have pink on your shoes.” Okay, apparently a first grader thinks he knows what it means to be “cool” LOL.


Buy them: Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Street Mid-Top Shoes $32.99


I ended up getting Adisyn the Jumping Beans® Athletic Shoes.


My little Diva absolutely adores these shoes. AS soon as she seen them in the box she wanted to wear them. I let her wear them around the house for a little while, so she could get used to how they feel. I swear, she didn’t want to take them off.


They are so adorable. They look tie die on soles, mixed with blue and pink. She wears a lot of both blue and pink, so they are the perfect shoes for her. They are made in Size 11-3, she wears an 11 (she’s 4).


These shoes are sure to get a lot of use. She is PURE energy, all the time. Running, playing, jumping, skipping, hopping, and any other adjective you could think of. She is balled up energy, and I’m sure these shoes can hold their fill

They are very high quality made shoes! They have mesh lining on the top of the shoes and are interlaced on the sides. The mesh lining wicks away moisture. This is awesome because I don’t know how many times it rained last year before school and my sons socks would get a little wet.

The insides of the shoes are comfortable and they have a padded footbed. They fit her feet perfectly. There’s a little room to grow but not too much that she is going to trip over her shoes! She is excited to be starting school this year, I woke up this morning and she already had both school shoes and a school outfit on!


Aidan is so funny. He tried to close his eyes, cross them, or something silly EVERY time! They are fun, energetic kids and I’m glad they both have a pair of shoes that will definitely keep up with them this year.. now only if this Mama could Smile
