“Pumped Up Kicks” for the Little One

I recently went searching for some good, sturdy toddler shoes to fit the little one’s rapidly growing chubby little feet. Surprisingly (or maybe not), decent kids shoes are hard to find! I hit Stride Rite first. They were having a clearance sale (2 for $30 for anyone in need of some new kids’ shoes!!) but were pretty much sold out of everything in her size. So I went to Baby Gap, Macy’s, Gymboree, Children’s Place, Target, all the usual stops. Nothing. Even Babies R’ Us left me wanting.

When I got home, I jumped online and started scouring all of the shoe sites. Zappos, Piperlime, Pediped, Stride Rite, ShoeBuy. . . And then I stumbled across 6pm.com. I had never bought anything from this site, but they had the Stride Rite shoes I wanted in O’s size for $34—the cheapest of all the sites. And seriously, how cute are these shoes?! Plus, I got a new pair of Nine West flats for myself for the same price! With free shipping, I really couldn’t argue with $73 for two pairs of shoes!

Have any good tips on where else to look for kids’ shoes? I’d love to hear them!

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and colleague. And trying to balance all of those roles at once can be utterly exhausting. Being the Type A control freak that I am, I try to run my life like a well-oiled machine. But sometimes the wheels get a bit squeaky (or just fly off completely, let's be honest). I have to slow down (yeah right, I know), give the different parts of my life a little tune-up and get back on the road.
