18 months and Gabriel wears a size 7.5 shoe!!! I mean seriously?!?!?! Since Gabe has been born we have been blessed with family/friends donating their kids clothes and shoes. When he was younger he never really needed shoes because he wasn't walking. I would just put socks or those really cute Robeez style shoes on. However it is Summer, Gabriel is walking, we are always out at Playgroups and the boy needs to wear shoes. My issue is I refuse to pay $30-$50 for a pair of shoes that he will outgrow in a few months.

Up until today his shoes have come from Consignment Sales or Once Upon A Child and I take pride in only spending $2-$15 dollars for a pair of shoes. Then it hit me, I can not find shoes anywhere in this town to fit my son's gigantic feet!!!

Nathan and I went shoe shopping today after lunch and went to Stride-Rite. They are having a sale and it helps, but good grief that place is so expensive!!!!! Nathan smiled, told me to relax, and with all the cheap or free things we have been blessed with, we are okay to buy two pairs of shoes for our son.

Gabriel received his two first pairs of Stride-Rite shoes, majorly discounted (clearance and military discount-thank you), and I am still trying to wrap my head around the lady measuring his feet and telling me size 7.5

Pictures soon - one pair for this summer and another pair for fall/winter....size 8 I mind you!!

  1. so you might want to put those size 8 shoes on him soon. If he is like Cameron. His foot will grow really fast. =) Cameron is in 8.5 right now. We just bought new shoes for him. He was in 7.5
