Buying Shoes: How much would you spend on kids shoes?
My son is fixated on getting a new pair of shoes. Though not any pair, specifically running shoes. He's been asking for them for months and as we embark on the start of a new school year, it is appropriate that he gets a new pair seeing how he has outgrown his sturdy hiking shoes and seeing how this may be the beginning of a new school year ritual. While there was a good discussion on tips on buying shoes and those with wide feet, I'm really curious as to how much you would spend on a pair of shoes for a 5 year old? Also, any suggestions for shoes for someone with flat feet (which means that his ankles will have a tendency to rub against the inside of his shoe)?
