Exclamation $179 shoes for my 2 year old?!?!?!???!?!?! Seriously?



Yeah, that pretty much sums up my emotions during the last 5 mins.....

I went to goodwill yesterday, found a GREAT pair of gently used boots. Took a look inside to see the size and noticed that it was a European sizing and it was a size 26....so then I compared them to an american sized shoe in his size and they measured up about the same. Then I noticed they were made in Italy so I was sold...lol (DH is Italian) so I checked the price. $3.99, eh, not bad for a nice pair of leather/suede boots in pretty great condition.

About 5 mins ago I thought, eh....I google the brand (PePe) and see what comes up.

Um, yeah, the boots go for over $100 a pair and the ones I have found closes to the ones I have are $179. I nearly choked on my twizzler I was eating....lmao. So, they are now one of the most expensive items of clothing/accessories in my home.

That was my thought exactly. Then you can buy some new boots from pedipeds or stride rite, and go out to dinner with the fam!!! LOL...
