A Mom's Guide to Graduation Shoes

Because choosing the right shoes doesn’t have to be a test


Graduation is an exciting time for both you and your teen. Before you embrace all the changes coming your way, she’ll need the perfect shoes to make her feel confident on her big day. After all, no one wants to fall walking across the stage! Here are a few helpful suggestions for the perfect shoes for her.


The Wedge

Wedges are a great choice for graduation day. Standing upright will be easier in wedges than in pumps, because wedges are more supportive. Try the Xappeal Lana to dress up your gown and add some height.

The Pesaro Jessa is another great choice, especially for graduates who feel more comfortable with a shorter heel. This fun summer sandal wedge can be dressed down for a celebratory lunch date, or dressed up for a more glamorous graduation dinner. The ankle strap adds stability if she’s not accustomed to walking in heels. If she really wants to make a statement, the Jessa also comes in a cute floral print.


Transforming Prom Shoes

We all know the prom struggle is real. It’s do or die to find the perfect shoes to match that knock out dress. BUT! Prom shoes don’t have to be “one time use only”. The Maripe Vivian is a great example of a prom shoe that can easily be repurposed for graduation. It’s glittery, it’s strappy, it’s glamorous, and it comes in black, gold, or silver. It’s also a great shoe for any formal summer occasion.

The foundation for Rack Room Shoes was established in 1920 in Salisbury, North Carolina by Phil Levinson, and later passed on to his son-in-law, Mort Lerner. The period from 1920 until 1984 was one of modest growth. However, in 1984, the 22-store company was purchased by The Deichmann Group, a Germany- based shoe retailer, beginning a period of accelerated growth and infrastructure modernization. By 1990, Rack Room Shoes was operating 100 stores and just 4 years later the 200th store opened. In 1995, the company relocated its United States headquarters to a 72,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Charlotte, North Carolina. Over the next ten years the Rack Room Shoes chain doubled in size, with locations in 24 states from New Jersey to the tip of Florida to the California borders.
