    Default How long do you expect kids shoes to last

    How long do you expect kids shoes to last

    My ds is 4 and I bought him a pair from Payless shoes about 2 months ago and they are literally falling to pieces.

    Yes he wears them every day, but I kinda expected them to last a little longer

    6 months at least.. But I spend between 100-200 per pair. Normally my kids outgrow them before they actually break.

    When I spend 20-40 they only last a month or two. It sucks.

    But my kids are 10 and 14, and my daughter fits mine, son fits his fathers sizes already.. So not looking forward to the next few years.

    My DS only wears Vans skate shoes and he outgrows them before they wear out.

    It's worth spending the extra for a quality shoe IMO.

    Dd1 years and years and years. Her feet stop growing like quite years ago and she wears and care for her shoes well.

    Ds1 well he feet are like freaking weeds. He a size mens 12 and still growing. So maybe 6 months before he needs to go up a size

    Dd2 longest is 4 months. Her gait is odd and shies just make it. When she was young it was more like a month. With her spd she would walk or run out of them and we would never see them again.

    Dd3 6 month to a year.

    Ds2 roughly 3 to 4 mths another bad gait.

    Ds3 well shoe are the devils work apparently. They shouldn't be worn. So the last forever.

    My DS1 (nearly 5 yo) runs through a pair in 3-4 weeks! He's very active and often uses them as breaks when he's bike riding. I don't spend more than $30 a pair otherwise I'd go broke!

    I buy good quality shoes which my girls tend to out grow before they are worn through. 3 of my daughters have actually worn the same pair of Adidas and Nike shoes plus have handed down all their havai thongs too.
    I buy cheap winter boots and summer sandals from Kmart/spend less which usually only last 3 months.

    My kids have grown out of shoes before they fall apart. Saying that though, their feet don't grow exceptionally fast so they last almost a year or in DS1's case more than a year.

    My kids get new shoes in January and July for school, my kids shoes don't wear out but look well worn with the amount I spend I would expect them to late 8/9 months
