Is $400 too much for a pair of shoes for a kid?

 I'm not talking about special shoes to accommodate special needs like physical deformities or extra support for weaker than usual ankles, etc., but just for an average kid with no special needs, a 4yo who would rather run around barefoot than wear shoes at all... for that kid, do you think $400 is too much to pay for a pair of shoes? I don't even know what brand they are or why they cost so much, but my brother's girlfriend just spent that on one pair of shoes for her daughter and I think that's nuts!

What do you think? Is $400 too much for one pair of shoes for an average little kid?

I would never in a million years spend $400 on anything for my kid if it was not a necessity. That is just insane! Only thing I could possibly imagine would be if it was a graduation present or something. Not an article of clothing though.

I wouldn't pay that much. I usually spend around $100.

I wouldn't even spend that much on a pair of shoes for ME, let alone a toddler who is only going to grow out of them within the year.

I just spent 100 dollars on two pairs of shoes for my kids last night. That's the most I've ever spent. I buy nikes and sperrys on sale and at the outlet mall. I paid full price for two pairs of kd's. 400 dollars on one pair of shoes is crazy to me but more power to her if she can afford it. My luck that would be the pair my dog chewed up or my kid lost.

Of course that's to much for shoes. Come on now that's just obvious.
For a 4 yr old the most I've paid was 60$
