My daughter had two pairs of Robeez shoes when she first started walking. They were gifts from other people and I thought they were just adorable.
She's 4 now and I still like the company that makes them, but it seems that their cheapest sneaker is around $30! Considering how fast kids grow during their first ten years, is it really worth it to spend $30+ on a pair of shoes they're only going to wear for six months (tops)? Throw in the fact that she doesn't wear shoes often, and it's definitely not worth it.
When she starts school, I might consider purchasing these expensive shoes.

Well that's your personal choice and I see nothing wrong with cutting out some expenses where you can! They are expensive enough as it is! Personally I do buy expensive shoes for my kids but to each their own!

I recently paid $34 for some sneakers for my 3 year old son. He also has a pair of cowboy boots that cost more than $30. My 3 year old daughter doesn't currently have any shoes that cost more than $25, but she has more pairs of shoes in total than her brother. I buy quite a few shoes for them at Target that cost between $12 and $20 that hold up pretty well, but I've bought cheaper shoes other places that had to be replaced before they outgrew them. My kids wear shoes all day long every day during the week, so they do get plenty of use out of them.
For me, if $30 shoes are a lot cuter than $20 shoes, or if they're more durable, then I'm probably going to buy the ones that cost more. If the shoes are used for 6 months, then the additional cost was less than $2 per month, and if the $20 shoes wear out then I'll be replacing them and spending more in the long run.
