Back to School refers to the time of the year, generally starting in late July all the way through early September, in which parents get their children prepared for the upcoming school year. Back to School is also a shopping season characterized by many retailers displaying items appropriate for schooling such as clothing, footwear and school supplies.
Footwear that rises to the ankle or higher; can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Boots that are designed for protection from the elements may be made of a single, closely-stitched piece of leather, rubber, or other material to prevent the entry of water, mud or dirt. Other types of boots are sturdy in nature, intended for protection in wilderness or industrial settings. Fashionable boots for men and women may have all the variations seen in other shoe styles, including high heels, platforms, and lacings.
