Teen Male Fits

Now that Liam is 14 and a full-blown teen boy, he is all about comfort and sporty looks. He wants graphic tees, stylish hoodies, utility pants, flow shorts, the latest footwear, and accessories, and more Just think of the heavy hitter brands like Under Armour, NikeJordan, Adidas, and VRST. VRST is a new private label line made specifically for men, offering the perfect outerwear, tops, bottoms, and accessories for going back to school in style. VRST recently announced a brand partnership with DeVonta Smith, the 2020 Heisman Trophy Winner!

Liam loves his sweatpants, and comfortable pants like these Adidas are at the top of this list! He also loves sporty tees like this Under Armour sportstlye shirt!  While Liam does like some color in his gear, he’s an all-black (or close to it) sneaker kind of guy. He really loves Under Armour sneakers the best.

Teen Female Fits

As time passes, styles and preferences change. While this isn’t as true with my son, it is definitely true with my daughter Natalie. Now 16, she changes her mind quite a bit these days. Currently, she didn’t want anything with large (or almost any) logos. The DSW line, DSG, fits the bill perfectly! Natalie is all about these oversized sweatshirts and cinch pants from the DSG line!!! She also opted for “chunky” Nike Airforce sneakers to round out the look.

DSG is a private label line that offers an expanded assortment of styles and sizes for women, men, and youth. It’s designed to be inclusive, affordable, and stylish all at once. And guess what? For every DSG item purchased, 1% of the purchase price will be donated to the DICK’S Sporting Good Foundation’s Sports Matter program to help save youth sports!

There are also a ton of great looks for teen females featuring bold colors and low-key styles from Nike or mix-matched patterns from The North Face. Of course, DICK’S is more than just an athletic retailer – check out trendy outerwear and fashion-focused pieces from Free People, the latest shades from Ray-Ban, and more.

Youth Fits

Caleb is the “baby” even though he’s 8 years old now (sniff, sniff). That being said, he just may be the most opinionated and picky of anyone in the house. HAHA, no really. He has very strong opinions on what he wants to wear, what he wants to look like, and even what brands he wants to buy.

DICK’S has some really awesome curated looks for kids featuring graphic hoodies and pullovers from Jordan and The North Face that are both versatile and encourage self-expression, and stylish essentials from Nike such as graphic tees and terry shorts. Thankfully, he still is a little guy and wanted some fun stuff on these clothes, so he opted for this really great graphic hoodie from Adidas and colorful Under Armour camo shorts!! He topped it off with his super colorful Under Armour Preschool Scramjet 3 Running Shoes…which he cannot wear enough!!


While I shared what shows my kids are rocking this upcoming school year, I had to just share with you the amazing breadth of styles and brands of footwear DICK’S offers. They have it all it seems!

They have the best running shoes featuring the latest in footwear trends from Hoka, Nike, Brooks, Adidas, Under Armour and more. DICK’S also carries great lifestyle sneakers for men and women from most popular lifestyle sneakers, such as Air Force Ones, Jordans, and Adidas. Be sure to check out the sneaker release calendar for upcoming launches of key sneaker brands like Jordans and Yeezys.

If you are not in the market for sneakers, that’s ok, too. DICK’S has you covered. They carry the most popular styles sandals for men and women from Crocs, Birkenstocks, Adidas, Reef, and more. They also carry boots for men and women, with the latest from Doc Marten, Timberland, The North Face, Sorel, and more.


As we all know, there is more to back to school 2021 than just shirts, pants, and footwear, right? Accessories are key to the whole thing, and it’s important to your kids to get the best and coolest stuff.

Contactless Curbside Pickup

Sometimes we are crushed for time, right? It takes time to go to the store and search for what you need. It can be even tougher with the kids around. They always tend to want everything…well, at least mostly everything. While shopping in the store is great, and we do love that, sometimes you have to save some time and try to get it done a little quicker and with less hassle. That’s where contactless curbside pickup really saves the day. It’s a great option to consider.

Contactless curbside pickup is one of the easiest, quickest, and most efficient ways to shop for us! It’s really something you should consider for this back to school 2021 shopping season! Simply order online or on your phone like you would normally. Then select curbside as your method of delivery instead of delivery. Drive to your local DICK’S location and check-in upon arrival. Soon after, a DICK’S associate will have your products delivered to your car in minutes. It’s pretty awesome and a lot of times it’s easier and faster than ordering online for delivery!!

Best price guarantee

Now, shopping for convenience and for great variety and style is one thing, but the prices are still very important to us. Buying new outfits for the three kids can really add up and I always like to make sure we are getting good deals whenever and wherever we can. Thank goodness DICK’S is all about the value, too. It’s pretty simple…and really awesome. If you find a lower price anywhere, DICK’S will match it with their best price guarantee! That’s a no-brainer and a can’t lose, right? Shopping at DICK’S just got even easier and simpler now, didn’t it??

Check out DICK’S Online

Well, there’s a lot here for you to consider. It can be a hard decision in many ways, I know. When you are ready to take the plunge, I think you should find out more and then shop DICK’S for back-to-school!! Be sure to check them out at:

These are good collection of family-friendly apparels. Unfortunately, we do not have Dicks outlets here and the best way to shop for their goods is through their online platfom. Now that holiday is nearly approaching, these items are absolutely ideal presents

I am excited that school will be back in the next few weeks. I hope things will get better soon.

Wonderful outfits! We always had to wear expensive school uniforms which is both outdated and also handy because there was clothing envy. But I personally hated it!

I feel like girls pay more attention to their look and what they wear more than boys and like to change from time to time.

They all look so comfortable and cute! Great colors as well. Hope the kids have a good back to school!
