Ds has 2 pairs of sandals (clarks and grosby) and two pairs of joggers, hand me down cons and a flexible walker pair from target. The target ones are actually really great!
He is growing out of them so fast atm, I'm trying to limit my spend on them. We have a friend that has passed down 5 pairs of shoes, some which were never worn as he grew out of them, so we are golsen for the next few sizes.

We started buying Nike, Adidas & DC runners for DS when he started walking. We bought one cheap pair from Kmart, but the soles fell apart after about a month! The better quality runners are worth the money for durability & support.

I usually buy clarks. At that age/size they're usually $50-$60. They're good quality and I'd prefer to spend more on a good pair rather than the same amount on several $20 pairs which don't last long.
This season I bought my girls a pair of Skechers each and they are jut gorgeous!

DS has the following shoes:
Globe sneakers - about $60
Vans sneakers - about $50
Velcro sandals from Payless - $25
Converse Chuck Taylors - gift
He hasn't worn the Cons yet (too big), but the other shoes have all been fantastic.
I don't mind paying a bit more for quality shoes. I don't think toddlers need a wide variety of footwear, just a few reliable pairs.

DS currently has 18 pairs of shoes ( I just bought 5 new ones for winter!) in every colour imaginable! 5 pairs sneakers, 2 boots, 3 slip on thongs , 4 sandals and 4 pairs of slip on shoes my girlfriend loves it as her 18 month old gets all his hand me downs!

We have between 15-20 pairs in his current size lol heaps are 2nd hand from my sister son quite a few hadnt even been worn! We get roughly 3-4 months out of each size at the moment it's ridiculous.
To the poster asking about the DC shoes we get ours from shoes and sox and one of the outlet stores at DFO. eBay is also good and well below surf shop pricing

I get most of my girls shoes from sports and surf shops. The ones that last the most have been nikes, Dc's and Adidas. They also have plenty of pairs of havi things to throw on.
By 12month old has about 20 pairs of shoes but half were hand me downs from her 3 old sisters.

I think it is really important to buy quality shoes and get them sized and fitted. So far we have bought 3 pairs of pablosky shoes from shoes and soxs: 2 pairs of trainers and 1 pair of leather sandals. I have only bought 1 pair at a time and they have been worn until he needs the next size (about every 3 months at the moment as he is growing really fast). The leather sandals were still in near perfect condition after 3 months wear.
