Also I have found crocs are great sandal wise, they're usually the first that kids can put on themselves, they last until they grow out of them, and they seem to be comfortable. They're having a bit of a sale at the moment too.

Thanks ladies! My phone is nearly dead but tomorrow I will be checking all the suggestions out.
I don't like to skimp on shoes (I only have a few pairs but I don't buy cheap) but ds just grows out them so quickly at the moment it seems pointless paying good money and they get worn a few times and then nothing.
My dad would love him to wear a pair of crocs haha I loathe crocs! Lol. They probably would be good for him to toddle around the farm while we are there.
Just can't stand the price some places ask for shoes. Especially for really young kids.

I like the kmart runners. I think they were $10. They were the only ones with enough give to fit ds' feet. They seem to wear well...scuffed at the front but otherwise in good condition after about 4-5 months of wear.

Kids feet usually grow a size a season so unfortunately in the early stages of shoe wearing they'll grow out of shoes before they outwear them. When I've gotten my kids sized and fitted I find Betts are good with selling me shoes that are a half size bigger allowing more wear time.
They shouldn't be so pricey for a necessary item and we shouldn't have to sacrifice our kids feet by buying cheaper shoes

I try and buy good quality second hand. I've bought off ebay, my local buy-swap-sell Facebook page and at a baby market that is held near me 3 or 4 times a year. I have got Clarks sandals barely worn for as little as $2!
