Cute and Trendy Athletic Shoes for Girls

Updated on August 1, 2013

Fashion Sneakers and Athletic Shoes for Teens and Tweens

Shoe shopping is a favorite pastime of teen and tween girls, and athletic shoe companies keep the young women supplied with plenty of fun and trendy choices. Sneakers for girls used to be rather dull, but the trendy tennis shoe styles of today provide an amazing range of color and design, with something for everyone!

You do need to be sensitive to your youngster's preferences in shoes. I made the mistake of picking up what I thought was the brand my teen daughter wanted at Christmas a few years ago, and I discovered that it was a similar but not cool brand. My bad! Keep in mind that as your growing daughter's sizing adjusts, you might want to hang on to your shoe receipts.

Cute Converse Sneakers for Teen and Tween Girls

Converse is a long-recognized brand that provides plenty of fresh inspiration each year. As you search for back to school shoes, keep in mind that these tend to last nicely, but as you look at trendy color choices, remember that trends can quickly fade. If you are going to sink good money into popular shoes, find those that will still work in six months. Also, keep in mind that a rapidly growing child may not be able to wear her shoes for the entire year. Invest in quality, but think about the long term.

Converse Colors

Converse sneakers for teenagers and tweens are a great choice because of the rainbow of color options available! Basic solids are probably the least prone to problems because of mid-year trend changes. Additionally, your daughter is probably going to pick a color that she likes, meaning that she isn't going to decide that her shoes aren't cool enough in a few weeks.

Converse Sneaker Designs

Whether you are looking for plaids, or for the very cute Dr. Seuss Converse shoes, there are plenty of cute sneakers to choose from.
