Much to my daughters’ delight, metallics and glitter are a hot trend for the back to school season, but with so many options, it can be tough to pick. So we scoured the web for the coolest kicks that will let your little or big girl shine for the entire school year–because these are shoes that are meant to last. Maybe even through a second kid.
As seen on our back to school shopping guide, TOMS glitters are now out, in slip-on styles for big kids and babies, or mary janes for little ones. They come in 6 gorgeous colors, and it’s a sturdy glittery fabric, not sequins, so you’re not going to end up with glitter all over your floor–or bald spots on your kid’s sneakers. ($34 and up)
[don't miss a fun TOMS giveaway and more styles after the jump!]
Umi has some cool metallic sneaks too, with their silver sneakers for boys that not only look great now, they’ll keep looking great since they’re machine washable. ($59)
to the mix. They’re a cool update to the ubiquitous black (or gold or silver or purple) mary janes,
and the glitter fabric means no teeny shiny pieces all over your house. ($32.99 and up at Zappos)
