Only a child of mine..........

two years ago hubby got me a really cute pair of brown sketcher sneakers...I could not wear them for more than an hour because I have unusualy high arches and they have zero arch support in them. They got tossed in the corner of the "shoe pile" and were forgotten about untill the end of last month when I discovered that Casey's sneakers wear so full of holes that you coule literaly stick two finger right through the sole.  apparently they had been that way for months but she did not tell me because she knew we couldn't afford new shoes, that is why I have had the pair I wear for almost 2 years.

I was sitting there wraking my brain..how can I get this child some shoes....I will NOT, no matter how poor we are, get shoes from a thrift store after a couple bad experiences from doing that as a child. SO I sit ther thinking, what bill can I get away with short changing so that she can have shoes when it hits me..."she can wear those sketchers that I can't......I think they are still around!"

WRONG! She worn them a few times and every time she wears them she ends up with bruises oin the tops of her big toes! Who the hell get bruises from shoes on the tops of their toes? SMH

So now I am back to figuring out what bill to shortchange so my poor kid can have shoes on her feet ugh!

Well that sucks, sketchers aren't cheap shoes, either. What size does she wear?

The shoes I am wearing right now I got for $5 on clearance at WalMart.  It's a thought.

What size does she wear?  My daughters and I are shoe freaks, all wear different sizes and I know for a fact, some are still in boxes.

She Wears between a 7 and a 7 1/2 depends on the style..She has high arches also but not as high as mine are thankfully. It is really hard for me to find shoes that I like that have the arch support I need.

I love the Walmart idea but they never have any on sale in the sizes anyone in our house wears. They are always sixes 3 and 4 or 9 and up
