shoes for my boys

When Cora was born I kinda went crazy over the girl shoes. There were so many. And they were all so cute. And usually you could find them for pretty cheap...which just made me want to buy more.

Boy shoes are a little different. It seems harder to find cute shoes. And they can be expensive!! It is hard for me to want to spend $40 on a pair of shoes for myself, let alone spend that much on shoes that Levi will soon grow out of.

So, this morning I was so excited when I came across this deal from Plum District. Have you heard of them? Today at Plum District you can spend $20 for a $40 credit to Tiny Soles. This was my first deal from Plum District, so I also got a $5 credit. That means I bought two $40 credits for $35 (you can buy one for yourself and one as a gift) and now I have $80 to spend on shoes for my boys. Awesome.

Tiny Soles carries brands like Stride Rite, Pediped, Robeez, and Keen. I have ordered from them before and was really happy with their service. Here are some of my favorites:

If you are needing some shoes for your kiddos, go snag your own deal here.

What are your favorite boy shoes right now??

Timmy is kind of lacking in the shoe department but he rarely wears them! I need to get on that. When he was smaller he had some of the Target brand Robeez style shoes that I LOVED.

Right now he wears some Old Navy flip flops and some little velcro sandals from Target.

I was drooling over some little Converse at Target too but I was too cheap. Ended up finding some like them at Childrens Place for $5...and yesterday I was at Goodwill and they had a whole RACK of Target castoffs. Little mini converse. I snagged some blue tie dye ones. When I got home I realized they were a 9 not a 6 :| Oops! They will fit some day ;)

Thanks for sharing this! I went over and bought 2 vouchers also! I found a 10% coupon code on their FB page as well! And many of the shoes had free shipping! I am so glad I saw your post before the deal expired! Yay to cute boys and cute shoes! I love Livie and Luca for my sweet boy because his feet are so wide!

Canadian slippers for the babes in my life - boys & girls! They stay on and actually look better when you wash them!

I have two boys 4 and 2 and I have spent a lot on shoes, but it has been SO worth it. I LOVE Pedipeds (they last for at LEAST 6 months and look great for #2), Keens, and Stride Rite. My younger son is in physical therapy and one brand you should AVOID b/c they are terrible for your kids developing feet are Crocs. I know everyone loves them, but they are really bad! I personally think the investment is worth them walking well and not having hip and back problems later on. Just my two cents! Happy shopping!

I've got a 17-month old boy and know what you mean about boys shoes! You HAVE to check out the See Kai Run's... that's all he wears now! They are so cute and comfy for my little guy! Expensive, so I try to stock up when I see deals like this one! Thanks for sharing!

The Keen brand of shoes are great! The little girl I nanny for (she's almost 2) has been wearing them since she learned to walk. They don't slip off and are easy to clean- you just throw them in the washing machine.

I'm kind of boring in the shoe department for everyone in my family. I have too big of feet to be into shoes for myself, and my husband doesn't really care. My 4 year old wears a lot of Old Navy flip flops in the summer. He has had a couple pairs of Converse Chuck Taylor high tops and I think they're absolutely adorable on him. The first pair I got him, I bought because he was at that 18 month-2 year old stage where he wouldn't leave his shoes on and it drove me nuts! With the tie-on high tops, I didn't have to worry about it, because he wasn't getting those suckers off! lol All that to say, I don't spend a lot on shoes, but mostly on clothes!

Our baby boy is only 6 months so up until now shoes are just a fashion statement and don't serve much of a purpose otherwise. For looks though I love little vans and Toms. But I haven't given in to buy any yet. They're just too expensive!

Adidas Snice for my toddlers!
We bought our middle son a pair for his 2nd birthday, and loved them so much, we bought him another pair 6 months later when he outgrew the first ones. Then for his 3rd birthday (on January 2nd like Levi), we went to buy them again only to realize they didn't make them in his size any longer. His feet had gotten too big. We ended up buying my daughter, who is a year younger, some in the girly colors.

I got SO many compliments on their shoes. They are bright and fun. They both loved wearing them. They were soft and easy to put on, and I felt like they supported their feet as well as the Stride Rite sneakers we usually buy.

I am a definite shoe snob for my kiddos as I think it's important for them to have good shoes, (I try to find the best deals possible by combining coupons, retail me not, etc.) and these shoes did not let me down.

Check out for children's shoes! They carry a lot of great quality brands (Keen, Robeez, etc) at a discounted price. I find a lot of my children's shoes there.
