dh paid $7 for the little guy after kohl's cash, and i picked up good school shoes for the other two at sal-val. apparently folks cleared out their closets while prepping for this school year bc both pairs didn't look to have ever been worn. The little just got clearance sneakers at the disney outlet in july, and the bigger boy still has two hand-me down pairs of nikes from a friend. The girl got $5 nike's "throw away sneakers for mud at camp" from sal-val also - they were brand new - um, in 1994 based on the style - someone cleaning out the inner depths of their closet! (she LOVES them - and there was no mud at camp!)
since i get ookey about used shoes - it was fantastic to find so many new ones for so cheap!
