Beating the Back-to-School Blues with Crocs

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on August 27, 2011

I recently blogged about how back-to-school shopping was different for us, in that it wasn’t much different than shopping for any other season. Well, that was before we had officially decided to send all four of our oldest kiddos to school away from home.

Back-to-school shopping has taken on a whole new meaning.

We are now hustling to find full uniform wardrobes for Ethan, Zach, Julia and Josh. Never before have they had to wear certain clothes and I’m kinda stressing out about it a bit. Especially since school starts for us in a little over a week!

I know it will be easier during the school year. We won’t have to worry about what everyone is wearing every day. The ending of summer and beginning of a new school year is always a difficult transition. But, this whole back-to-school shopping thing is kind of giving me the back-to-school blues.

It’s out with the tank tops and t-shirts and in with the school branded polos. Out with the swimsuits and in with the sweaters. Out with the sandals and in with the sneakers.


Crocs is actually making our back-to-school transition just a bit easier with their Back-to-School Collection. They sent Julia a pair of their Hover Sneaks in Bubblegum. They are lightweight, super comfy, super cute, and available in 13 new styles for boys and girls going in to Kindergarten through 8th grade.

These new Crocs don’t look like typical Crocs and can be worn with or without socks, making this part of getting ready super easy. In fact, they’re all school-approved because they’re close-toed and close-heeled. Like I mentioned, Julia already has her’s and I have a pair of Hover Sneakers picked out for each of my older boys, as well.

Now, if you’re keeping track, that is a lot of new pairs of shoes all at once! That alone is enough to give me the blues. BUT, Crocs is came to the rescue AGAIN, with a special link to a pretty awesome discount hidden within the video below. Look for an image in the video that is similar to the image to the right and see what happens! The entire video is interactive, actually, so whenever you see a pair of shoes you can click on them and check them out.

I love these shoes. I got a great deal on them at Burlington Coat Factory. My kids love them, and I loved the price. They were so much less expensive then I had seen them for in the other stores.
