Do you always buy your kids new sneakers to start the school year?
Usually. Pretty sure both kids will need them this year (DD's are falling apart and DS has lost the left shoes of both of his this summer, not to mention his feet are nearly the same size as mine now - he's 11).
i wish i didn't have to but my daughter is so rough on shoes she barely gets a year out of a pair.
Yes, esp if she's wearing them in gym or PE. As a former runner, I am a BIG believer in well fitting, supportive shoes. There's nothing more painful than knee problems, foot injuries, or shin splints!
Yes, just bought them today.
I used to but now the economy s*cks in the last few years so we've compromised a bit. Instead of buying new ones right away, I wait until my dd's gone to school the first week and seen what the other kids are wearing. That way she won't have one pair and suddenly come up with an excuse to have to get a second pair, because she wants what other kids are wearing.
Yes! 4 pairs of shoes for school.
We always do new shoes and at least a couple of pairs of new jeans and a couple of shirts. Not a whole new wardrobe, but enough to dress in all new stuff for the first week.
