Teacher Themed Shoes: Great Picks for Fun-Loving Educators
Teacher themed shoes may not be for every educator, but I’ve seen enough apparel printed with stethoscopes, beakers, insects, etc., to know there are many of us who enjoy showing our passion for what we do through our clothing. If you’re a teacher who enjoys letting your inner Ms. Frizzle come out to play every once in awhile, here are some fun teacher themed shoes sure to keep your spirits light and your students and colleagues smiling (but if your dogs are really barking, we recommend checking out our round-up of more supportive footwear for teachers).
These adorable teacher pattern slip-ons get 5-star reviews for cuteness and comfort, and are appropriate for teachers of all subjects and grade levels. They’re lightweight and feature high quality canvas construction, a soft textile lining, elastic stretch V for easy on/off, and a durable EVA outsole. Available in sizes 6-12, $39.95 at Amazon.
We’re big fans of “twins” style shoes, which means the right and left shoes coordinate, but don’t match. Here’s a fun example perfect for teachers.
Another “twins” style, suitable not only for teachers but for anyone who loves what they do, comes from Dansko, a brand synonymous with high quality and great comfort. Dansko clog features include a roomy toe box, excellent arch support, and an anti-fatigue rocker bottom that sets feet in a forward motion for shock absorption and energy return. Available in sizes 4 1/2-13 for $134.95 at Zappos and Amazon.
Hundreds of teachers give these cute world map shoes 5 stars for style and comfort! Just beware of students trying to peek at your feet during the geography quiz. Available in sizes 5-11, $59.99 at Amazon.
We couldn’t include shoes for every school subject, but a lot of them are out there! For subject-specific shoes, including physics, chemistry, geography, and band, click here (check out the “teaching” collection).
No matter how much you love teacher themed shoes, chances are you don’t wear them all the time. For a selection of great picks for everyday, check out our recent post featuring more comfortable shoes for teachers.
