I am low income. I also have a teen and a preteen. I will not embarrass my kids by having them wear payless are walmart shoes not to mention they are not made of good material.

My son will be wearing Jordan and my dd will wear converse or vans. I shop at shoe carnival or the shoe room which is a local store.
I save to buy my kids name brand shoes because that is very important to them.

Hmm I just find the name brands on sale .... I don't have teens yet so they aren't picky ... But some places in the city neighboring us have amazing deals !

Good shoes are a necessity in life. The better the leather, the better the quality and the support.
That said, my crazy kid prefers, of all places, old navy shoes lol

I think it's fine, you get to decide how you spend your coins.  Shoes were a big deal where I grew up too.  If you wore generics you were teased a lot.  It's not right, but that's how kids are.  I would want to protect mine as well.  If you ever HAVE to go generic, just don't get them anything that is faked out to look like converse or whatever.

We make plenty of money, and our children wear shoes from Wal-Mart or Payless. Smart decisions make for money in the bank :)

I buy the name brands as well because Paylee is a ripoff here. It's like $35 for cheap shoes, you can buy name brand shoes for $15 more at Penny's that won't fall apart in a month.
