S/o loves his $100 pairs of Nike. He has recently bought himself three pairs.

I bought him a pair of "play" sneakers on amazon for just $24.95 for DC sneakers which are normally $80+.

Total he has 4 pairs of sneakers. He hadn't gotten new ones for a long time. $325 total.

Now mine were all bought online: neon pink and black converse for $25, black and teal Skechers for $30, two DCs for about $25 apiece, a pair of white canvas Keds for $30 and one pair of "dress" sneakers with spiked studs and fake leather for $20... $155 for six pairs of new sneakers :)

Olivia received three DCs : 2 at $25 and 1 at $18 and one pair of converse for $20. Less than $100 for four pairs of sneakers.

Alexander got two pairs of Nike in store: $80 for one pair, $50 for the other and one pair of $25 pair of DCs I bought on amazon.... $155 for three pairs.

Needless to say: amazon it is from now on. lol we are all in adult sizes

They're so comfy. I love them. Some are still pricey at normal price, but if you look individually per size and style they have good deals

Yeah, the fact that dd is an 8.5 in women's and ds is an 11 in men's sneakers well- amazon it is! I didn't mind the $50 nike though. The $80 was a bit much to me. My kids are just 11 and 13. They still have a lot of growing left. Lol

Good deals.

I have to try my shoes on to see if they fit before buying.

 I didn't know this! Usually clothing is more on there... hmm... I need to check this out! Usually we shop Target and it's great for short term wear but when they start wearing a shoe for more than a few months I need something tougher!

I always search low to high so it automatically gives me the lowest priced shoes. :)

Dc shoes are cheap everywhere. No one pays more than $25 for them.

When I see them in stores I see them for $65 and up. Same as Osiris sneakers. Very popular with the skateboarding crowd. I don't know where you live, but obviously it isn't "everywhere"
