It’s that time of year again! Back-to-school prep is here and the frenzy to get all the necessary items on your list seems endless — supplies for school, backpacks, lunch boxes, books, sports gear, clothes and shoes. Some of these tasks are quite daunting (ahem, perhaps locating 75 purple glue sticks?), while others are a bit more fun… like shopping for new clothes and shoes! I remember being so excited shopping and picking out my own first day of school outfits and getting my mini-fashionista-self prepped for the new school year in style. These days, I still get excited, but for getting my own little ones ready for back-to-school. I love taking them shopping and seeing what they choose to kick off the new school year!
Back-to-school with Rack Room Shoes
For back-to-school shoe prep, my go-to spot to shop online is Rack Room Shoes. Not only do they offer a great selection of on-trend footwear for the entire family from everyone’s favorite brands (Sketchers, Nike, Converse and Vans, to name a few!), but the pricing at Rack Room Shoes simply cannot be beat. Rack Room has a great “Buy One, Get One 50% Off” promotion that allows you to buy any pair of shoes and get any second pair half off. Combine that with their rewards program where for every $200 you spend you receive a $15 gift certificate to use on your your next purchase and you have quite possibly found back-to-school shopping heaven.
All about style
My son is still young enough that he isn’t really locked into one specific style yet. Some days he is sporty, some days he is preppy, some days he is everyday casual and some days he fashions what I like to call “I dressed myself while I was still asleep in the dark.” With the many options available at Rack Room Shoes we try to find a pair that will suit all his styles, as well as meet the requirements for all his activities during school hours.
After checking out all the fabulous styles, for this school year he decided on the super-trendy Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars. With their classic style, great support and rubber closed-toe comfort, he couldn’t have picked a better option for going back to school. After surveying the selection of colors he ultimately landed on the navy, which perfectly matches all his style needs.

A pair for him, a pair for her
Not to be left out, little sis wanted to match big brother and be part of the back-to-school fun, too! Again, with the BOGO offer from Rack Room Shoes, this was a no brainer. She picked out the Toddler Converse All Stars in pink and they are just as versatile as her brother’s.
With Rack Room Shoes, I love knowing that I am able to stylishly shop for all our children in one spot… and without breaking the bank along the way. I am able to concentrate on making that first day of school special for each individual child and can sit back and enjoy watching them figure out which pair of shoes excites their own personal style. Rack Room Shoes makes the back-to-school shopping experience simply fun for everyone.
Helping others when you shop
This year, for back-to-school, Rack Room Shoes is raising funds for families in need through their Shoes That Fit campaign. You can donate easily when you check out online on Rack Room Shoes or in any Rack Room Shoes store location and 100 percent of the funds donation go back into the communities where they are donated with the help of local liaisons who identify children needing new shoes. To make it even sweeter, Rack Room Shoes has committed to matching all donations made, up to $300,000!
