the walmart special... and in two months when they fall apart, they'll go get some more cheap shoes to have them fall apart in a couple months again....

doesn't it make more sense to buy a better quality shoe that will last and do your feet right?  jeez....

My 6yo has "walmart shoes" and she's been wearing them since last year. She also has Walmart flip flops and dress shoes. None have fallen apart in a couple of months.

Meh, people should spend their money on what they want.

Worry less about others and you'll live longer.

Well if you're not funding their children's wardrobe, then stay out of it.

I don't wear Walmart shoes and neither will my son. Not good support for someone's feet

they might not have enough money all at once

But yes I only buy name brand shoes, I don't like the look of non brand names usually

It makes me wonder what people do in these shoes and clothes that make them "fall apart" so fast.

I've bought wal mart shoes and I've spent hundreds on shoes for my kids. They're all torn up and need replacing within three months.

But for some reason the sports cleats take the worst beating and still look pretty new after a full season.

The expensive ones don't hold up any better. Both my husband and my son are shoe wreckers. Nothing lasts more than a month, be it $10 Walmart specials or Nike. I'm pretty sure their feet are as fine as they can be

Walmart shoes shouldn't fall apart in a few months. These people must be seariously abusing the shoes for them to go bad in a few months.

WTF?? At least they HAVE SHOES!! If $10 is all they can afford then that's all they can afford, not everyone is fortunate enough to buy better quality shoes.
