I decided not to buy shoes from the uniform place because it is very expensive there. A pair costs more than $40 over there and although it last for the whole year, I still think it is a bit much for school uniform shoes. I got a coupon from payless so we shopped there. My husband was hesitant to buy their shoes there because he is the type that likes to buy "branded". I am more practical. I see it as practical shopping especially for shoes. The kids feet grows faster than you can't imagine so buying branded shoes is not so practical at all. Anyhow, here are the shoes that we bought at Payless.
Gym Shoes - every year, we buy them an extra pair of shoes to use for their Gym classes. Their gym shoes are still in great condition but they can't use it anymore the next year as their feet grew bigger. Again, not practical to buy branded shoes because they only use it once a week in school. Their gym shoes stayed in school after every use so there's no way they can use it at home.
Uniform Shoes, we bought each of them a pair of uniform shoes. Ms. Burrito has extra pair that she can still use as it was a bit bigger for her feet when we bought it last year. The little mister also has an extra pair at home.
I also bought two packs of white socks which was on sale for $10 a dozen.
Then I snagged me two packs of this low foot liner which was also on sale for $5 for two.
I paid more than 80 dollars for four pairs of shoes and more than a dozen of socks. A big savings compared to buying the school shoes at the uniform place which could have cost us almost two hundred bucks if we bought it there.
