Why are kids shoes so damn expensive!! I need to buy ds some new shoes before we go away in a couple of weeks and everyone is asking ridiculous prices!! I'm not paying $40 for a pair of shoes he will grow out of in a couple of months.
Does anyone know where sells cheap shoes but decent enough they won't get destroyed.
Ds is only a toddler - only size 5 (at Kmart and bigw) the range they have in our local stores is pathetic. Some shoes have no give in them and ds doesn't cooperate lol.
We are going to the family farm in qld so was hoping to find sandals and maybe some form of boots, happy with anything just reasonably priced lol

We buy the kids 1x every season but it's a good pair and fitted properly.
Do you have a dfo handy? We got the kids clarks sneakers for 22$ each.

Yes why are children's shoes one of the most expensive things on the planet??? I buy shoes for DS (age 3) from Aldi when they have them as they're leather and usually good prices. I'll buy the next size up if I can. I also buy secondhand from a couple of facebook pages as kids really do grow out of them so quickly.

Definitely gumtree or ring around and see who has specials on kids shoes.
I personally am quite specific in what I like on my kids feet but always manage to find good quality supportive shoes on special. When money has been tight I only buy the one pair etc

I usually buy one pair of good shoes for day to day and playing at child care. I have terribly feet so I want my kids to have good protection.
All other shoes come from cotton on kids, theirs aren't too bad.
*edit to say one pair of good shoes for summer and winter. They usually last me 6 months and they get good wear so I think they are worth it!

I also feel shoes are the one think I won't scimp on. I'd rather pay $40 and have them last and be super comfy than a cheap pair which are usually at least $20 anyway. If u can get good shoes on sale its worth it IMO. We just paid $39 for a pair of new balance trainers for dd from a sports store which were reduced from $65.

Betts kids have a huge sale on ATM some shoes are down to $20
I don't skimp either feet are very important and supported arches. Go get them measured then buy online I've noticed they are cheaper online too
