Re: Thrifty kids shoes?

So I went to Target today, not really optimistic about finding anything and they had a huge shoe clearance. I signed up for their Red Card (debit not credit) too. I picked up both play shoes and dress shoes for super cheap. It's funny though because there were only one pair each left in the size 12 and they were exactly the styles I was looking for.

Now I don't feel quite so badly over spending the money on the Bogs (rain - the Target ones crack way too quickly for us) and Keens (snow) for her that took a ginormous chunk out of the budget. I will say though, those high end shoes better last and be hand me down worthy. Despite getting both for about half their retail value, I never thought I'd pay so much for children's shoes. I guess I got spoiled by hand me downs and consignment sales.
