Re: Do you let your kids wear hand-me-down shoes?
howdy! never. i always bought dds' shoes at a stride-rite store where i knew the owner was knowledgeable. they only had two pair at a time, one play and one dressier/school, but i felt the development of their feet was worth it. they had hand me down and thrift store clothes until they got to middle school and then had a budget which they could spend however they wanted. one dd bought everything from clearance racks and would come home with a bag full, the other, one pair of gap jeans. p.s. i wear thrift store/yard sale shoes myself if i can find them.
