My DS is extremely hard on shoes. I have tried to buy cheaper shoes but I end up regretting it every time. My limit is $30 to $35 right now. I will only buy him Keens and I get gently used ones on eBay. I would rather buy Keens brand new than buy something at Target or Kohls because I always end up having to buy him another pair of shoes when the cheap ones fall apart.

DS2 I can still get away with cheap shoes, hopefully that lasts for another year or so.

We used to keep our daughter mostly in See Kai Run shoes and I'm so sad that she's outgrown them.  She is the kid who always gets blisters from Target shoes (which sucks because they're so cute) and things like that.  Keds fit her pretty well and I've had good luck at my twice-yearly trip to the Keds outlet.

 

For summer shoes, we LOVE these:

 

http://www.onestepahead.com/catalog/product2.jsp?productId=537380&parentCategoryId=85179&categoryId=86179

 

Right out of the box, they have a Crocs kind of smell but it fades.  They are SO sturdy and they adjust in three places for a good fit.  The back comes off if you want to use them as slides but with the back, they're as sturdy as a tennis shoe but not as hot.  She loves them.  I don't know what we will do next year when they no longer come in her size.  This is maybe my third year buying them.  They still look good at the end of the summer so we keep passing them down through the nieces.

Are these sandals to be for you almost 10 year old?  If so, be sure to measure her foot, because it's around that age that many girls outgrow youth sizes and have to buy women's sizes.  Unfortunately, that ups the price you have to pay!  (It's even worse with boys.  Men's shoes are $$$!) 

 

In general, I think whenever you have specific requirements, you end up having to pay more to get what you want.  (There are exceptions, when you stumble across a great deal, but limited choices make it less likely.)  In our family, I don't require closed toes, but I do want sandals that actually strap to the foot and are comfortable for all-day, every-day wear.  (Which is what sandals get in the summertime with my kids -- they wear them out in one summer!)

 

I've had really good luck finding deals at sierratradingpost.com.  They specialize in brands like Teva and Keen and have a really great selection.  I always find good prices, and sometimes I find *great* prices -- like $15 for Tevas!  When the kids were younger, I often bought them Land's End sandals.  If I could get next-years pair in the early winter, I could get a good price, but at this time of year, you'll probably have to pay full price there.  They are *really* good shoes though.  I was bummed when they outgrew them.

I cross-check online, usually at Amazon. Also Zappos, 6pm, and a handful of other sites. I usually shop their 'sales' and spend about $30 a pair.

I think this varies hugely based on the age of the kids.  My 3 year old is still outgrowing shoes well before wearing them out so I aim for decent shoes (flexible, comfortable and that fit him well) but no, I'm not spending $50 a pair. If we were talking a pair of sneakers that he could wear through multiple seasons before wearing them out or outgrowing them, I'd be looking for a higher quality shoe.  Especially if he's anything like my husband, who trashes cheap shoes really quickly.

*Update* Lands End was having an online sale this week, so we got a really cute pair of Mary Jane Trekkers for $14 + $6 shipping. That I can live with. I gave her the choice between those and the ones that look more like Keens, and she chose the Mary Janes. She was very pleased to read that they were designed to be worn without socks.

Tell me about it! Ds is my almost 10 year old (1 more month!) and he wears a men's size 7 (= women's size 9). I'm not buying HIS sandals until mid June. He definitely wears out shoes, and his shoes are expensive. We can't get by for less than $35-$40. Dh did get a steal on baseball cleats for him (gently used, $9), which helps a ton. But regular shoes, and then shoes for each sport that he outgrows. Ugh.

I feel your pain, sister!  lol.gif  My ds is almost 9, but he has big feet and has just recently passed through that void between youth sizes and mens (sizes 5 and 6) which no one seems to make shoes for!  I think he'll be on the other side of that this year.  But sports -- ack!  Football cleats, basketball shoes, etc., each of which will only fit for one season -- at men's shoe prices?? horrors.gif

I usually do end up spending that much, but my children have XXW feet, so I'm just thrilled when I find a shoe in their size whatever the price. Used is next to impossible for us - I look all  the time, I just almost never find any in my kids' sizes.

 

What we do though, is buy online from shoebuy.com or shoes.com. If you search retailmenot or coupon cabin or one of those sites, and you should be able to find a 10 or 15 % off coupon. Once you purchase a pair of shoes from them, they'll start sending you coupons by email. These coupons are often in the 20% off range, which puts the nicer sandals in a little more comfortable price range.

Old Navy flip flops.  2 pairs for $5.  Mostly, my kids run around barefoot.  This wouldn't help with your covered toe issue though.

$50 for keens here. We live in AZ and sandals are what DS wears almost daily. DS has a wide foot and these fit him. I learned my lesson years ago when I tried to buy him cheaper sandals/shoes and he just would not wear them. Right now he is 10 and wears a size 5-6 (kids). I dread when he jumps to the mens sizes and I'm sure that day is coming soon. Ds has some minor tactile issues and very minor foot problems (wide and gets major callous/blisters) so I will gladly pay for Keens, and Nike or New Balance sneakers for his feet not to hurt. He also loves Crocs and Crocs flippers are the only type of flip-flop that does not hurt his feet or cause 'between the toe' blisters - totally gross IMO *OP I also have a covered toe rule for bikes and scooters.

Yes, we just emerged from the no man's land (literally!) of size 6. Even size 7 are hard to find. I figure in another 6 months he'll be up to an 8 and shoes will be easy to find again, if expensive. I'm just hoping he tops out at a 13 or 14 so that we can find shoes in normal stores. Dh is a 13, I'm a women's 11 (10 before I had kids). The saving grace is that they don't have wide feet. Ds is a narrow actually. (My mom wears a 10 AAA. Try finding shoes in that size!)

I'll skimp on a lot of things, but never shoes (especially for DS).  I bought him Crocs for the summer for $35.  I'm contemplating getting a pair of Keens too, but last summer he pretty much wore Crocs exclusively so I'm not sure if they'd be worth the $60 I'd spend on them.  His everyday shoes are Elevens (preschooler sizes made by See Kai Run) and they cost around $60, IIRC.

I've spent decent money on shoes, though I'm a huge bargain shopper, so I'll buy quality for less.  Those of you mentioning Keen should check out 6PM.com.  They do have a sale going on right now on several brands, but Keen sandals are at a decent price.  As with all sales, sizes/colors are limited.

I am cheap, so we often buy cheap shoes. However, I am starting to realize that this is frankly kind of stupid. Payless and Target shoes simply do not last a season on my active kiddo. (We live where it is very hot, too, so sandals are in season about 7-8 months of the year.) I also do not put her in flip-flops or flimsy strappy things with little heels. She needs to run.

I like Lands' End overstocks, and they are often pretty reasonable. Couldn't find anything this year that we liked. So we looked and looked, and settled on this brand:

http://www.zappos.com/salt-water-sandal-by-hoy-shoes

They really seem awesome so far. The sole is NOT going to come apart--I can tell. She can wear them in and out of the water. The only issue so far is that we got white, and they show the dirt. They wipe off, though.

surrender.gifOK, OK, I'm cheap! I'll skimp somewhere else. Actually the Mary Janes we got from Lands End will work well for her bike riding, and we just now need to get a good pair of sandals. I think I may need to buy them locally, and wait a month or so, as I want to get decent quality that fits. She's up to a size 3, and putting on a little weight, so I have a feeling a growth spurt is imminent. Sigh.

I also likwe See Kai Runs and they are about $50. Apart from 'specialty' shoes like rain boots, DD only has one pair of shoes at a time so I feel this is justifiable. We just threw out last year's pair. If I had another girl they would have been fine for play shoes but weren't in good enough condition to donate or sell. They do wear really well and I lvoe the flexible sole. Plus both DD and myself have extremely wide feet. My mantra for shoes for me is: if they fit, buy them. Because I don't often find any that fit. Our feet are the shape of birkenstocks.

Several people on this thread have suggested 6pm.com and I thank you! I just got a great pair of Nike water sandals for dd for $14!

Interesting, because I cannot wear Birkenstocks or Crocs. We have long, narrow feet, with the second toe distinctly longer than the first. Birkenstocks don't give that 2nd toe enough room, and they're too wide.

 

I didn't realize that See Kai Run made shoes past toddler sizes. Too bad. Unfortunately, dd is in their last size and they don't have a lot of variety in their older kids' shoes.

I haven't read the other replies, but I don't think you're being cheap.  I'm willing to spend a fair bit on sandals for myself, which I'll wear year after year until I wear them out, but sandals that will be outgrown just aren't that kind of investment.

You've described my husband's and son's foot shape perfectly!!! My husband wears an 11 EEE, and son wears a 3.5 XW - I'm sure he is destined to have at least an EEE width when his foot is fully grown. Do the See Kai Runs fit your daughter? Maybe they are worth a try for us, too. When we looked for sandals this year, we had exactly 1 option that we could find in his size.

I try to never skimp on shoes.  That being said, DD never has more than two pairs per season. 

 

DD has worn these sandals for the past two summers.  I just ordered her third pair for this summer.

They fit really well with a wide, square toe box. i've only had her in teh mary jane style ones but they fit like a dream, even this year when I put her in them before i realized they were too short (i.e. they were too short but still wide enough for her wide feet).

 

My mum calls Birkenstock clogs Troll Shoes, LOL. If I could wear Birks all year round here I would (I used to).

I think I'm going to buy ds2 some squeaky sandals from AngelCovers this summer.  It's a charity, so even better!  I have never ordered the sandals, but he is currently wearing these squeaky shoes from them, and they are hand-me-downs from ds1.  So the quality is good, especially considering the price, and they have held up.  The soles on the shoes are super-flexible; I can bend them in half.  The only complaint I have is that they only come in itty bitty sizes, so they only work for kids up to about age 2.  But I thought someboy might be interested in them. 

 

ps- Both of my boys LOVED these shoes, but if it turns out the squeaking bothers you or your child, you can pull the squeaker out of the sole.  We took out just one so the squeaking was less. winky.gif

We bought DS keens last summer and he has a new pair for this year.  The old ones held up really well so his sister should be able to wear them eventually.

Another 15-20er.  

 

While flip flops tend to die quickly, sandals at 15-20$ do not.  They easily last the season without sore feet in my household.

I'm not worried about open or closed toes, but I do get nice footwear, including sandals. I don't personally skimp in that area because once I did and there were blisters. greensad.gif I haven't had that problem with nicer shoes or sandals where someone helps me with sizing, so I'm sticking with that.

When dd was little, I would splurge on See Kai Runs (or squeaky shoes- which tend to be nicely flexible and a good deal).   We've had good luck with the Speedo brand sandlas and water shoes sold in a back aisle at Target (with the seasonal swim and pool stuff-- not in the shoe dept)-- they're only $15 or so, and pretty fleixble and washable.
