How often do you need to buy your toddler new shoes?
As recommended I've been taking Sam to have his feet measured every 8 weeks since he got his first pair of shoes. And everytime so far he's gone up a size and needed a new pair. Is this rate of growth the same for everyone?
Unavoidable but so expensive! Need really imagined a toddler would need a shoe budget of £200 a year!
Lol I know! Elliot had his first pair at Christmas 2 months later I went to get him measured and he had gone up not one but 2 sizes, I have no idea how we managed to fit his feet in bless him!! Kinda glad we missed a pair though haha shh, but these seem on the bigger side so I'm hoping he won't grow too quickly, maybe we can get to 3 months?!
Urm between his birthday in October to just after Christmas Stephen's feet hadn't changed..... but then when we went back mid january he'd jumped from a 4.5h to a 6.5G...... so I still take him every 8 weeks as usually they have grown!
It slows down. We used to buy Omar new shoes every 8 weeks until he was 20 months. He still can wear the shoes we got him in July. He wears size 6.5. Just recently we bought him a new pair size 7 but it has lots of space xx
we bought elsbeth her first shoes in july just before her 1st birthday, i took her to get measured a few times after that but i don't think we needed to buy more until october/november time, and she's still got room in those ones but i will be buying some more spring/summer types soon! So i guess hers last her 3/4 months!
Probably not reccomended but I don't buy proper fitted Clarks etc. anymore. I do take her to get measured every month or 2 though!
I go to Next etc. and try the shoes on LO. I make sure they fit really well around the foot, ankle and that she has room in the toes and can walk well in them and that they are light with good support. I now spend only £10-15 every 6-8weeks on shoes rather than the £30+ I was spending before!
If your LO wears shoes all day I'd get proper fitted ones though. I take my LOs off when she's in the house, pram or car so she only has shoes on when we're at playgroup or out walking xx
brooke used to have loads off shoes i spend way to much, she is still a size 3 lol i bought her shoes from clarks last week yes i spend 30 pounds but im hoping they last as i hve just flung her old shoes out.
everywhere has different sizes aswell it bugs me she is a 3 in clarks but her nike hitops are a 4 lol
i used to buy her shoes all the time if i liked them but not anymore, to much money ur talking 30 pounds for shoes.
