Back to school shopping with little be interesting, to say the least. We recently took our oldest to Famous Footwear to pick out a couple of shoes for school since he’s grown out of almost everything. We love that they keep the most stylish shoes in stock from Adidas, Converse, and even Nike.
Prepare for the season
We set out to replace what he’s grown out of but also purchase shoes for the season. During back to school we stock up on boots and dressy loafers that come in handy for fall weddings and winter outings. Since we live in Texas there isn’t a need to grab heavy-duty snow boots so we were pleased to catch stylish boots on sale.
Avoid buying shoes more than one season ahead.
I’ve learned from experience that if you try to buy seasonal shoes too far in events you may be surprised that they end up being too big or too small for that season. It’s hard to predict exactly how your children should grow so buy things 3 to 5 months ahead but no more than that.
If you LOVE the shoe, get the next size up
One thing that I do to keep my boys on-trend is grabbing a third shoe that is one size up from my oldest. This is perfect because they will always need it at some point. Famous Footwear is always having a sale so that makes it an even better place to shop for back to school shoes. You can buy one and get the 2nd pair half off right now in stores or online.
