For the past week I have been on the hunt for plain white tennis shoes for Josie, with no success. (and she HAS to have closed toed shoes for preschool, which starts on Tuesday.) I literally went to 8+ stores (with both kids in tow!) with no luck-if they had them, they didn’t have Josie’s size (or were almost $40, which I just cannot justify paying for her shoes because she outgrows them so fast), OR all they had were pink/purple/neon/sparkly tennis shoes.
Anyways, today we were in G-ville, and I remembered that the last time I was on fruitless shoe search for Josie, I had found success at K-mart, so I decided to just run in and try my luck. And…SUCCESS! They not only had the exact style of shoe I was looking for, it was also on clearance, they had Josie’s size, and they were made more narrow than other brands we had tried on, so they fit her skinny feet better. 😉 Added bonus:they were having a buy one, get one 50% off sale, so I was able to get her the pair that fit just right, plus a pair in the next size, and still paid $12 less than what I would have paid somewhere else for just one pair-AWESOME. So next time I am on a shoe search, guess where I am going FIRST?
Okay, long, rambly, boring post over :).
