I feel like I am always buying shoes! My kids are quite rough on their shoes (especially the boys) and they are going through so many growth spurts that they are always needing new shoes. I usually by the kids new shoes right before school starts, a couple times during the school year and then some sandals for the summertime.
Here are Adison’s sandals that I bought her for the summertime. They are still in great condition but she has already grown out of them. They are getting tight and she doesn’t like to wear them now.
Here are Kayden’s sandals. He has been super rough on them this year and they are pretty scroungy and the fabric is fraying.
I am not even going to show you Carson’s shoes. He doesn’t like to wear sandals so he wears closed toed shoes all summer (I think I would die if I did that). He has been on so many scout trips, camping trips, mowed so many lawns that his shoes look quite awful. I think one is even missing a shoe lace right now.
Well school starts in two weeks and to be honest I don’t have all of my school shopping done. We have most of their new clothes bought but we still need to get shoes, school supplies and a few other odds and ends.
Famous Footwear is one of the places I like to purchase my kids shoes. They have hundreds of brand names and thousands of styles. When we go in to the store my husband takes the boys and I take Adison and we get shopping. We are able to browse the shoes quickly to find the ones that we like. For some reason my kids love shoe shopping. I completely understand why Adison loves it – I mean she is a girl after my own heart. But the boys really enjoy it as well. They all love looking through all of the styles. Adison will most always choose something pink and if it has a princess on it that is a bonus. Kayden looks for shoes that are black or gray or army fatigue colors. Honestly though, Carson is getting a bit older and we are starting to differ in opinion over styles – I hope I can get through these teenage years!
Since we are always buying shoes I love looking for a good deal. Right now just in time for school shoe shopping Famous Footwear is having a back to school promo. They are having a BOGO sale (Buy one get one half off) plus 15% off (20% off if your are a Rewards member or sign up to be a Rewards member).
I am excited about this promo because it will be making school shoe shopping easier for me. I will be buying probably around 4 to 5 different pairs of shoes so this will help me save a lot of money.
