Our most recent purchase was from Kickers as they had big reductions in their sale section. Thing 4 and 5 both got a pair of the Kickers Star Wars boots and Thing 5 also got some smart shoes.
I always shop the sales or if buying full price (very rarely) I will buy with a discount code.
Checking out the new Spring Summer collections recently I have seen a few pairs that's have caught my eye from Startrite, Lacoste, Gucci, Fendi & more, my fault for following companies on Instagram and finding too many nice pictures of shoes.
Yes they outgrow them, I do sell on outgrown shoes to fund more purchases. This helps considerably and it's great to make money on outgrown shoes and clothes to fund the next sizes up as they grow, which they seem to do an awful lot!
Shoe buying and browsing new shoe collections online is my weakness, the same as others enjoy buying wardrobes full of clothes or buying nice cars or going on lots of holidays. We all have our little indulgences that make us happy and this is mine.
