With school starting back up, I’ve definitely been hitting my 10,000 steps again. So why not walk those miles in cute, comfortable shoes? This year Converse really took a step up, with their increasing variety of colors, styles and customization – taking your style to a whole new level. Never walk across the quad without a compliment on your footwear as you conquer this school year. Ready to online shop? Let’s go!

#1: Little Miss Go-Getter (Shop here!)

She’s got it all together – acing her classes while simultaneously running multiple clubs and getting a full eight hours of sleep a night (we never know how she does it). These white, platform converse are classic with a twist. For the girl strutting through the quad to class at nine am, these are for you. The white color makes them a solid basis that can be paired with practically any print, pattern, or clashing color, and the platform is just enough to give you a little confidence boost. With their OrthoLite insole for the ultimate comfort, these Converse will last you all year through any of your new adventures.

#2: She’s Cool & Collected (Shop here!)

She’s in touch with her higher self. Whether it’s by meditating in her room with her crystals or taking the sunrise hot yoga class at the gym, nothing can make this girl break a sweat. These sand-colored converse will keep you grounded, even when you’re running across campus to class. Tired of seeing yet another pair of basic, white shoes? With their patterned tongue and unique color they’re just enough out-there to draw the occasional eye, but don’t cause an entire scene. Made with mesh lining, these Converse are breathable, taking you from yoga class to coffee runs at Zion and back again, making them your instant BFF for this school. 

#3: Making Her Statement (Shop here!)

She has a flare for dramatics. “AH!” She has a reaction for every piece of life whether updates, news, or celebrity gossip. Customizable is her middle name, from her sticker-adorned notebooks to the trendy pins attached to her backpack. Never afraid to stand out in a crowd, you’ll find her at open mic nights sharing her poetry or chilling in a hammock with her favorite songs blasting. Her custom Converse are a staple piece in her wardrobe for any activity. With seven color options and custom embroidery graphics, the possibilities are endless. These Converse are ones you can make truly your own, an Instagram-worthy shoe that guarantees your year will be as bright as your footwear.
