It’s hard to believe that we’re already approaching back-to-school shopping season, and love it or loathe it, it’s something that us parents all have to do.
Last year I forgot that my daughter needed a pair of indoor shoes for school, and ended up standing in an hour-long line at the shoe store the night before school started. I don’t plan to revisit that mistake this year, which is why I am planning ahead, and also shopping online as much as possible.
Here’s a list of quality options that would work well as indoor shoes, and as a bonus: they can also be ordered online. They’re on the pricey end, but good shoes are a great investment as long as your little one isn’t known for destroying them!
Under Armour Mojo – Boys’ Grade School
These shoes are made for long-lasting comfort and are perfect for any active grade-schooler. Light as a feather and designed for flexibility and comfort, this sneaker is perfect for everyday indoor wear. Plus, the reinforced mesh gives your little one’s toes a light, breathable feel.
Available at Footlocker, $70
New Balance Kids’ Preschool
These velcro shoes are perfect for the younger set to slip-on, a must for kids that haven’t yet mastered how to lace up their own shoes. These sporting shoes are perfect for active kids, the lightweight style won’t weigh little runners down, and the mesh sides allow for maximum air-flow.

Skechers GOwalk Pro Slip-On
The ultimate in comfort and ease, these shoes easily slip on and off and come in a variety of sizes and styles. GOwalk Pro works well for school-aged students who enjoy a variety of activities, and are an excellent option for those looking for a slip-on shoe that stays on.

Kids can pick a Converse style that suits them and will enjoy the ease and lightweight comfort of everybody’s favourite canvas shoe.
