If you want to be the cool mom then you need to know that the fastest way into teenagers’ good graces is to give them something. Hey, teens are very materialistic, and who doesn’t like surprises? When you choose fashion sneakers you’re giving your teen something they will love and something they need. This makes them happy and gives you the peace of mind that you can only achieve by providing for your children’s needs. Even when they are teens they are still your babies!
So what sort of sneakers are teens wearing these days? Let me just say that you could shop all day and not come across two pairs the same. Teens want sneakers that reflect their personal style so the better you know your teen the better equipped you are to shop for sneakers for them.
Retro and Vintage Teens
Teenagers who love all things from decades past are easy to outfit in the newest fashion sneakers. The 80’s have come back into style with skinny jeans, slouch socks and of course neon colors. Set your teen up with a pair of neon high-tops for a brand new retro 80’s look.
From basketball shoes to runners you can find a great pair of sneakers that will meet the demands of your sporty teen whether he is jumping hurdles or shooting baskets. Sporty sneakers are just as individual and unique as your teen with many different styles and colors. Alberto Cola the race car driver has designed a sneaker that many sporty teens will love, and several other sports and entertainment people are getting into the design side of promoting sneakers.
If your teen likes to spit rhymes and rock beats then a pair of classy street style shoes that he can move in as he steps to the beat or slides across a stage are what he needs. Try some classic dark sneakers with a style that is unique and comfy to give your teen a hot style that he’ll love.
Skaters are a whole different breed of teen. They use words like fakie and goofy foot, they fly through the air on their boards and defy gravity to perform ollies and switches to make a mothers heart stop. They are confident and they are tough. They fall and they get up and try it again. Skater teens have a style all their own too. Their main requirement is shoes. Skate shoes fit well, they don’t fly off easily but don’t stop the teen from moving their foot by being too restraining
No matter what style your teen likes you can find a pair of retro sneakers that will go with her favorite skirt or his baggiest jeans, and you will be super cool mom for at least a few days until you do something mom-like and embarrass your teen.
