Croc Loving Kids Finally Have School Approved Options

It’s time for back to school shopping and I’ve been agonizing over what my oldest is going to wear this coming school year. Her school has a dress code, and for a girl who prefers to dress like Snow White every day of the year, sticking to the code is going to be a challenge.

She refuses to wear pants, which is fine, because I can totally wrestle some leggings or tights under her dresses and skirts. The biggest hurdle I am facing with the back to school shopping has to do with the shoes. Because right now, her shoes of choice are a pair of clear Cinderella high heel jellies that light now. I’m sure it goes without saying, but they are a major infringement on the dress code.

The only “normal” shoes she will tolerate are her beloved pair of pink Crocs. I know, it’s hard to believe that my petite fashionista has a thing for Crocs, but she love them. Can you blame her? They are pretty comfy.

I’m sure many of you seasoned mothers know this already, but the traditional-style Crocs aren’t approved by most schools because they are open in the back. Also, some of the most-loved styles are also open in the toe, which doesn’t follow most school’s dress codes either.

What’s a mom of a Croc-loving kid to do?

Well, I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Crocs has a new Back to School line of shoes. And when I saw these, I have to admit that my heart skipped a beat:

Aren’t they cute? I even like the boys’ stuff enough to think about going for a third baby. Ok- not really, but the new styles are really cool.

This is just a sampling of the 13 new styles that Crocs has for boys and girls ages K-8. The best part is, the Crocs Back to School kids’ line are all school-approved on the outside (they are close-toed AND close-heeled), but with the same comfort on the inside.


You can head over to the Crocs website and check out their Back to School kids’ line of school-approved shoes now. Thanks Crocs!

When Morgan isn't outside enjoying the Southern California weather, she also writes for her own website:


  1. The Mary Jane style Croc in the picture will not be school/playground/daycare approved. All of the holes in the sides allow for playground mulch to get inside, plus kids tend to trip on the sole of the shoe, not just because it’s open in the back or the front. I had a student with close-toed Crocs trip on his own Croc because of how rubbery it is and gash his chin open. Has nothing to do with the openness, but how rubbery it is on the linoleum/vinyl floors.
