P.S. On Shoes

And before people say that expensive kid shoes last longer, the previous post was prompted by me having to throw away a pair of – and I feel idiotic even writing it – $48 shoes I bought her in September. They were sturdy but. . . She’s an active 5-year-old who spends hours outside each day. There’s no shoe can survive that.

I’m kind of upset over the $48.

  1. At that sort of use level, it might be worth looking at the kid’s shoes ranges from mountaineering boot manufacturers. Can guarantee, f’rex, that Meindl sneakers don’t break, even with hours-a -day outside use (I use a kid’s pair of Meindl Tarangos as my daily low altitude shoe, including 2.5h of offroad use a day, and 1 year in they look brand new). They’re going to be more expensive than 48$ tho, and they aren’t made in very girly styles unfortunately….


  2. We get all of ours at the kids’ consignment store. We can still get the nice shoes, but I don’t feel sad about them disintegrating or being outgrown in 3 weeks as long as I paid less than $10.
