My 8yo DD has a pair each of: Lands End winter boots, Crocs, Uggs, Pumas and Primigi mary jane's.
DS's each have a pair of sandals (usually Nike or Keen), winter boots, rain boots and a pair of other shoes, DS1 has Pumas and DS2 has Sperry's. I would buy DS1 dress shoes but he won't wear them.
If you buy nicer shoes, they last forever and can usually be resold for a decent amount.
