I hate clothes shopping. I really hate shoe shopping. With 4 boys I feel like I have to buy shoes every couple months. My 2 younger children especially are extremely hard on shoes. And they both have really smelly feet. I'm sorry but they do.
I usually buy cheap Wal-Mart or Target shoes. I spend somewhere around $15 typically. However the last 3 pair I have gotten from Wal-Mart the kids have burned through pretty quickly. They just don't last.
So last night we took the kids to the mall to try and find shoes for my husband as well as my son. We checked out a few stores and ended up at Kohl's. I finally found a pair that seemed to fit him good and was a much higher quality shoe. But when I saw the price I about fell over $49.99. Seriously? For kids shoes? Ugh.
So there came the dilemma. Should I spend the $50 bucks and get the higher quality shoe and hope that they last more than a couple months? Or should I just go back to Wal-Mart and get the cheaper shoes. I can get 2 maybe 3 pair of shoes for the price of these ones. Finally my husband made the choice for me and we bought the $50 shoes.
Thankfully I had a 20% coupon so that brought my total cost down to $40. I am hoping these shoes last for a while. I guess we'll find out.
How do you save money on kids shoes?
