Am I crazy or does this make sense?

Oh yeah, I'd be buying one size that fits and the next size up or whatever works best in your case. Or a pair for someone else. I understand the concern Mr. B may have about accumulating too much stuff, but really, it's about saving $$... and as to whatever the shoes are 'worth' - they're worth whatever you'd have to pay for them when you need them, which you stated was $60 each, so, to epbrown, there ya go... they're worth $60 ea or even more by the time she'd need to buy them.

Things sure are getting expensive - $60 for kids shoes, wow. It's obviously been a while since I bought any kids shoes. But even when I did, I sure wasn't a slave to fashion. If I couldn't afford the Nikes or Adidas, they didn't get them. Too bad, so sad.

That's a good point about seasonal shoes -- I think I'll have to pass on the cleats. Ceats are a dime a dozen at Goodwill anyway. Kids typically only get to wear them for one season before they're outgrown.

Mo usually doesn't wear shoes out before he outgrows them and he isn't really much into "style" so I'd feel pretty safe getting Brand X shoes that he'd like to wear in the future. Sneaker styles don't change all that much.

I guess I'll take a look and see what they have in stock. It just seems like too good of a deal to pass up.

I ended up paying $29.40 for two pairs of shoes -- $84.00 actual retail!

@boomerang,
I think it makes perfect sense. He'll get over it. Smile

@Setanta,
I love this store. Besides groceries they sell the basics of anything you need for your house: clothes, shoes, hardware, dishes. Since I hate to shop this place scores big in my book. One stop to get what you need.

I'm not a big coupon clipper but damn! This place sends me coupons like "save $5 on your next produce purchase of $5 or more" with no restrictions. Use those with the coupons that they run in the paper and you can get all kinds of stuff for free.

I don't know how they stay in business.

@boomerang,
What's the name of the store? I'd like to see if they have a website to browse.

@Butrflynet,
It's called Fred Meyer.

Kroger bought them out several years ago but they didn't change anything, thank goodness.
