Re: Do you let your kids wear hand-me-down shoes?

The person who I bought them from said they had hardly been used and they had only used the wide footbed. DD needed the narrow, so it was pretty much like using a new shoe.

DS wore a used pair of 0-6 mo robeez. Babies don't walk so they were just for warmth, so no problems there.

But once they are really walking, I prefer new shoes. We get ours at Marshalls (outlet store). Stride rites are $13-$17 a pair. Right now dd is wearing a pair of Merrel mary janes that were $16. So I do get bargains.
Every time I see a post from you I over your avi picture! Sorry OT, but its so darn cute!
