Ds is 6 he's had his school shoes (and runners) since January, so almost 9 months.
How do you know when they need another pair? How often do you buy new school shoes /runners?

I buy them new ones when they are falling apart haha my kids are slow growers so have never out grown a pair before destroying them first.

My kids have always lasted the year in their shoes. So every January is when I buy new ones.

When they outgrow them. DD went through a crazy amount of shoes last year, something like 5 pairs she just wouldn't stop growing. This year she has slowed a lot so we got her a more expensive pair last holidays and I'm hoping they'll last her the rest of the year.

If they fall apart or they outgrow them, I polish dd's school shoes when they get all scuffed up

When he out grows them, I bought clarks shoes with plenty of room in them and polish them every day, they've lasted since January, still look good and have room in them. Hopefully they will last a year.

well she hasnt lost a pair yet so here's hoping I dont have the same issue as LoveLivesHere
essentially when they start falling apart. She is pretty hard wearing on shoes though, so even when I buy really good quality ones, they dont last until she grows out of them

Ds2 was a shower until about 10.
She does have sensory processing disorder. They would fall off her feet while she was running (her joints flex a lot more than they should) and she wouldn't notice. You would go to pick her up and she would just have one shoe on. It happened at least once a month in good tomes and 2 or 3rd times a week in bad times.
Ds2 seems to lose his after his has taken them off. He just takes them off atcrandom times and just forgets them.
