Do Your Kids’ Mary Jane Shoes Need to Be Made of a Specific Color?

Most schools require Mary Jane shoes to be made either of a black or brown color. The Mary Jane school shoes that I recommend are made out of leather and they are available in black, brown, and navy.

What Makes the Mary Jane Shoes I Recommend Ideal for Back to School?

The Mary Jane shoes that I recommend are made out of leather, provide a supportive outsole, firm heel counter, and have extra padding around the heels to prevent blisters. Let me help you visualize the features that the Mary Jane Shoes that I recommend provide:

  • Extra Padding around the Ankles: This feature helps increase comfort and prevent the formation of blisters around this area. Take a look at the image below for better visualization purposes:
  • Memory Foam Insoles: Many children love how soft these shoes feel and how they mold to their foot shape. Memory foam shoes help to evenly distribute the child’s body’s weight, allowing a more comfortable walking and running experience.
  • Non-Marking Outsole: Several school dress codes require that children wear shoes with non-marking outsoles.
  • Supportive Outsole: This feature helps cushion and support your child’s feet when walking or running around at school.
  • Firm Heel Counter: To support and protect your child’s heels and ankles. The heel counter is the back part of the shoe and you should always press on it and make sure it feels firm and sturdy. Take a look at the image below to visualize where the heel counter of the shoe is located.

Should Kids Wear Socks with Mary Jane Shoes?

I strongly advise you to have your child wear socks with her Mary Jane shoes. Socks act as a barrier between feet and the shoes, preventing the buildup of bacteria inside the shoes as well irritation and infection.
