Confessions of a Teenage Shoe Fanatic

Ah, teen fashion. Funky, edgy and just fresh all around, teen footwear fashion is about eclectic as the teens who embrace it. Whether you want to go feminine, punk, sporty or just plain wild, there's a footwear style that fits you to a T. Here are some of my favorite picks from the Teen Shop: BOOTS Women's Tommy Hilfiger Kiona – Forest Green This bold-hued forest green boot by Tommy Hilfiger is sure to place you front and center the moment you walk into a room. Over-the-top with shearling lining and suede upper, the Kiona is a comfortable, if slightly eccentric, winter boot that screams young and hip. It looks great with complementary blue jeans and possibly a matching green pea coat. Big, green shearling flap cap optional. Also available in dark brown and khaki. Women's Sperry Top-Sider Weather Gear Pelican Tall Boot/Print The great thing about being a teen is that you have the right to wear pretty much any print under the sky, like this bright green/red/black argyle print. The Pelican boot by Sperry Top-Sider makes for the perfect wet-weather companion, bringing back the ‘fun’ in function. Made with a high-gloss durable waterproof rubber and lined with cushioned micro-fleece, these boots are sure to keep you dry in all weather conditions. Weather protection adds comfort and luxury, with quick drying capabilities. They feature a non-marking rubber outsole with Wave-Siping™ and dry/wet traction to keep you grounded at all times. Also available in black/white/pink houndstooth, multi-color stripe, and green/pink/white argyle. Dr. Martens 1460SMDMS – red leather Dr. Martens is synonymous with teen punk style, as this cherry red rugged boot clearly demonstrates. As seen in this picture, this boot is made of smooth, corrected grain leather that’s hard-wearing. The signature DMS sole features yellow Z stitching all the way around the base. Shown here in cherry red leather; also available in black smooth leather. CASUAL Women's KangaROOS Lotus SD This fantastic vintage ‘79 ROOS are young, fresh and a comfortable way to be stylish. Available in 6 different color combinations, you can easily match your shoes to your mood everyday of the week. It features a side pocket to store your key and change. Shown here in black/pink; also available in over 40 other colors and styles Women's Keds Hilary – Navy Prefer the preppy route when it comes to footwear? Then channel your inner Mischa Barton in these uber comfortable mule-style slip-ons by Keds. The pair you see on Mischa here, called the Hilary, are made of microstretch canvas, which means they are breathable and stretchable. A great shoe for the spring, these casual slip-ons go well with denim cropped pants, jeans or even shorts in the summer. The perfect shoe for those who feel that flip-flops are strictly beachwear and prefer wearing real shoes everywhere else. Check out the rest of the Keds collection here. DRESSY Women's Chinese Laundry Honour Supreme Young shoes are all about the platform. These sexy, round-toe platform pumps by Chinese Laundry look great if you want to go vintage at your next school dance. Pair it with a cute A-line dress that you borrowed from your mom’s closet, spice it up with some trendy jewelry and you’re good to go. The best part? No one else will have your dress, and these shoes will allow you to dance through the night without ever feeling the pain. The heel measures 3 1/8 inches, and the front platform measures 1 3/8 inches. Women's Blink Amalia – Mint For the uber-feminine teen, these low-heeled pumps look absolutely adorable with a nice skirt in the spring. The light mint color is fresh and young, as are the bow and gathered design on the vamp. The 1 ¾” heel is low enough to efficiently get from one class to another without breaking a sweat, and trendy enough to hit the mall or café after class. Also available in rose and banana. Women's Touch Ups Roxie Every girl needs the perfect prom shoe, but instead of buying the dress first and then matching the shoe, try the other way around! These sexy slide sandals with a clear vinyl band come with 13 different colored satin ribbons, so matching is never a problem. The foot bed is made of smooth leather and is slightly cushioned in the mid-sole for comfort. The crystal clear platform and heel creates a high-fashion look, and the traction outsole and non-slip heel pad ensure you stay on your feet. Because they’re slides, they’re easy to get in and out of if you prefer dancing barefoot but don’t want to bother with straps. See more prom shoes here.
