Summer 2018 is unfortunately coming to a close, which means back to school season is upon us. While this time of year is often dreaded by kids, it does have a pretty good silver lining—new shoes.

As much as everyone would love to step into the halls on the first day in some Off-White Prestos or Yeezys to stunt on their classmates, the exorbitant price tag that comes along with limited releases means that many have to ball on a budget. Thankfully, brands like Nike, Adidas, and Vans all have sneakers that don't lack the style necessary to complete the perfect first-day-of-class fit, and are actually accessible.

Whether you need a clean pair for the upcoming semester to walk around campus, or are looking to lace up your kids before they catch the bus every morning, here are some of the best sneakers available right now for $100 or less.
