Toddler shoes. I'm not cheap but...

Our daughter's feet are growing really fast. We spent $50 on her last pair of shoes which was about a month ago. They barely fit her today. Where do you buy your kids shoes and how often? This is getting expensive. lol

  • I bought my son Nike's for his first pair of sneakers. He wouldn't walk in them. When he grew out of those I went to the dollar store and bought a pair for $6 that look exactly like Converse sneakers and he walked in them right away, and loves them!

  • Wal-mart or payless. I wasn't about to spend that kind of money on shoes my kids would wear only a couple of months

  • Google "Once upon a child" and see if they have one in your area. It's a resale store but they only buy and sell nice stuff. You can get a pair of nice shoes for $4 or 5; great deals on all other clothes, kids gear, toys... I wouldn't necessarily wear used shoes myself, but kids outgrow them so quickly lol.

  • we usually go to kohls or target. we just got our first payless shoes for our older boys...i don't think the quality is as good, i think they might wear these shoes out before they outgrow them. i really enjoy getting good shoes on clearance!

  • My dd is 21 months and I agree shoes are expensive for how fast they grow out of them. I usually shop at payless but today at Jc penny in their clearance shoe section I found stride rites for $15.99! Amazing! And they were pink! :)
