Picky shoe shopper?

I have to take my dd out this morning to get new shoes.. This is the trouble. We went a couple weeks ago to mervyns. and she didnt like ANYTHING. I was letting her choose any brand she wanted. ( except vans skatershoes, which she doesnt like anyway) we were there for like 2 hours, and NOTHING!!
I am sooo not looking forewrd to this today. BUT she needs thletic shoes for school. So Kohls is having a good sale on kids shoes. a ton under or around 20.00, like keds, adidas, and others. Im like SCORE. but I know this is goign to be a night mare! She is only 5, how can she be this way already...

Cant wait until she is 15

WOW, we actaully had LUCK!!!
I talkedher out of thegreen and pink avias and talked her into Keds. I feel soo bad though. We dont have any money, but she needed shoes. SO i took my pp and bought her some... Well the avias were like 40 and the keds were on sale for 17. She kept telling me all thru the store, Dont worry mom, I will forget about my green adn pink shoes soon. " I really liked the pink ones, but these will b e fine" I bet Austin would have liked the pink ones..."

I feel badly, but its not like i bought her crap. I just got lucky that Keds were 50% off. And Keds fither so well.

Maybe i shouldnt give them an option, and i should buy what i want. But my mom always bought me crappyshoes, and my feet have issues because of it. I would have spent more money on shoes at walmart!!

Just feeling guilty. I want to give them hwat they want ( withing reason) and this week we are just BROKE!!! and with vacation next week, she needed shoes to go with..

My daughter was awful. she was bad about socks too.

The Shoe store guy earned his money with Jordyn. We got to where she would wear vertain shoes, and liked only that kind. Elephanten sandals, Keds shoes, and the occasional Nike.

Good luck! There isn't anything you can do about it either. You are stuck with her.
