Do you always buy your kids new sneakers to start the school year?
No - my oldest doesn't wear tennis shoes..just boots..and I can't afford $200 for a pair of boots every year when he still can wear the ones from the year before...he does really well with making his boots last. (he's 17 btw) My youngest , who is 16, gets two to three pairs of tennis shoes a year. He just got a pair less than a month ago because his others were wore out. If I didn't have to go to a specialty store and buy his shoes (his feet are HUGE) at the cost of 70 - 100 per pair it would be different, but they are super expensive and with the thoughts that I usually have to buy him three pairs a year, that's a no go for me.
Yep. After being in sandals all summer, they have grown out of their tennis shoes.
only if they need them.
