Introduction:If you've got teenagers or know any teenagers than you may have noticed some similarities in the types of shoes middle schoolers and high schoolers have been wearing lately. According to what I've experienced with my kids and their friends these are the most popular teen footwear trends of the past few years.
If my daughter could wear flip-flops 12 months out of the year she would! Frostbite would be just a petty annoyance if I allowed her to slip on her flip-flops and rush out the door in the dead of winter. With so many expensive flip-flop brands on the market today you could actually pay as much for these as you would for a pair of snow boots.
Speaking of boots, the sheepskin boot is definitely one of the most popular teenage footwear trends. It all started with one particularly expensive brand and now it seems every shoe maker has come out with their own knock-offs of sheepskin lined boots. You can find them in a range of styles and colors in every mall in the country. Just take a peak in the shoe store windows as well as on the feet of the teenage mall rats roaming the corridors in search of the next fashion trend.
Even if your kid has never stepped foot on a boat and the nearest body of water is hundreds of miles away they may start asking for a pair of boat or deck shoes. I'm told it's a "preppy" shoe for kids that also like to wear polos and button down shirts with their khakis. You know, so strangers will think you go to that fancy prep-school your parents can't afford to send you to.
Some teens that are into hip-hop music want to dress like their favorite rappers and wear the same expensive blinged out sneakers as these millionaire urban poets. They think these shoes will up their "street cred" and help them "bust a move" on the dance floor while they impress their "posse".
DUUUUDE!!! Every skater kid needs a few pairs of skater sneakers to win the approval of their friends. Will these shoes make them a better skater? Probably not, but they'll look extremely cool as they wipe out on the grind rail.
