I believe anything over 24.99 is too much

My boys only have 2 good pairs of tennies.  I always pay at least $35 - $70 for their shoes.  They wear them a long, long time so it seems worth it.

Over 30$. They are just going to outgrow them.

For every day wear, I'd say $20 or under would be desirable.

I hate paying more that 20- 25, but less is better. I tend to buy cheaper shoes for my boys to wear to daycare, they have a really nasty sand in the play ground that totally ruins shoes- so they each get a pair of school only shoes. Then I get them a nicer pair of tennis shoes- usually Nikes or something similar to wear out and about, then they usually have church shoes- brown and in the summer sandals.

I won't pay more than $30. My parents have a friend who owns a shoe store and we get great prices from him. But my parents will buy those b/c they are still expensive. I have bought at Stride Rite and those are probably the most expensive. Otherwise I get them at Target or places like that.

I pay $45 for my son's sneakers. He loves and will really only wear the Tony Hawk brand from Kohl's. They last forever.
