Holy Shoes!?!


Since when do childrens shoes cost $100? I remember the good old days when my mom would take me for shoes. The most expensive ones were $50- $60 and man that was alot of money back then. I remember she splurged a couple of time for weddings, on good pairs of shoes.
We went for a walk today ( in an effort to save gas - besides it was nice out) to buy sandles for the kids. School is over the end of the week, and it is time for their toes to get a breathe of fresh air. Miss Ellie has narrow heels and need to be fitted in a good shoe. MrJames has a double wide foot, and Miss Peanut needs good arch and ankle support. So this is one family that can't shop for shoes at Wal-mart. Miss Ellie found pair of cute shoesshe really liked them until I saw the price tag...$100.."um, Ellie perhaps you like the OTHER shoes better?"
We came home a little lighter in the wallet, but the kids have great fitting shoes. Ahuva had to have hers ordered from Zappos, as the store didn't have her size in stock.
NOTE: So the shoes we ended up with are NOT the ones pictured above. Those are the $100 shoes she wanted...I guess sshe'll start saving her allowance up for next year....

That's a lot of different feet to fit! Isn't it funny, all from the same parents, all different feet?!

you're telling me! My brother wears incredibly large shoes, like a 13, my dad is a 10 and a half and my mom is a 7...go figure!
