What better way to start off the school year than with new sneakers? Look no further than Maroon for kick tips. We’ve gathered the trendiest shoes for the fall season and listed them here!

Everybody needs basic but cute sneaks for everyday use. The Reebok Club C 85 Classic Lace Up, the Adidas Forums, and the Vejas and Onitsuka Tigers have all become extremely trendy after being promoted by stars such as TikToker Addison Rae, supermodel Kendall Jenner and actress Emma Watson. Not only are all of these shoes comfortable to wear throughout the day but anyone who wears them will walk the halls of the 2021-2022 school year in style. These kicks can all either be found on Zappos, the Adidas website, the Reebok website, the Onitsuka Tiger website or online at Urban Outfitters. The shoes listed here range from 75 to a more expensive 150 USD but it is well worth it. Any student wearing these back-to-school sneakers will shine among their classmates!

Nike Dunks and Nike Air Jordans have both made their way from being sports oriented to being part of the fashion world. Rihanna, Travis Scott, Bela Hadid, and even Kanye are just a few of the fashion icons that have been seen wearing one of the two. Found on StockX and Nike, our favorite place to find cool Dunks and Air Jordans has to be GOAT. Maroon thinks these shoes are definitely worth the range of prices from 100 to150 USD. Along with the variety of colors as well as color combinations, these shoes range from low, mid, to high tops. Perfect for all genders, these shoes are very versatile and add a little edge. Dresses, jeans, sweats, or leggings, the list of what you can match these shoes with goes on. In addition, Nike’s Blazer ’77’s have also made their way into Scarsdale High School and recent trends. These high top, retro looking sneakers are easily styled. From Nike to Footlocker to Fightclub, these shoes can be found virtually anywhere from prices ranging from 80 to 110 USD. Nike is really serving with sneakers this back-to-school season and we can’t wait to see more of them in the halls throughout this year.

Who said height had to be uncomfortable? Adding on to our back-to-school trends are two platform sneaks that give you the boost, style, and comfort all in one. Up first, we have the Nike Air Max 90’s. Ranging in vibrant neon colors (as seen in the photo) or plain white, these comfy and fashionable shoes are giving us almost futuristic vibes. You can find these shoes on Nike for prices ranging from 80 to 120 USD. Throwing it back a little, the New Balance 452’s are totally worth the range. These shoes keep it simple and minimalistic color wise, but add so much to your look! With the definite addition to your height, these athletic shoes are agreeable with any school outfit. A bit more on the pricey side, these shoes range from around 100 to 300 USD and can be found on the New Balance Website or GOAT.

Another great shoe option is Converse. Oh, how Converses have made a comeback! Students can pair high or low top Chuck Taylors with all outfits. These versatile sneaks pull a look together whether it be a top with jeans, shorts, skirts, or sweats. If students want to go bolder, platform converse like the Run Star Hikes and All Star Move sneakers are also trending and super fun options. These can be found on Zappos in a large array of colors on the Converse website where buyers can even custom order their kicks. SHS students cannot go wrong with a pair of classic lace ups.
