Toddler Velcro Shoes - part 2

So, remember a couple of weeks ago when I went on a rant about toddler sandals only being available with velcro & my little boy who lost a shoe at the mall because of that velcro (which is way too easy for him to get apart)?

Here's the rest of the story . . .

Jeff went out & bought another pair of sandals (velcro, of course, since that's all we can find) -- $22.00, since we couldn't find any cheap pairs at Walmart. After only a couple of weeks, we've lost another shoe! Jeff & Chase went out shopping with 2 shoes on Chase's feet & came home with only one. So, now we have 2 sandals left, but they don't even come close to matching each other.

Today, we bought our 3rd pair of sandals for this summer season. They were only $13 because I managed to find some at Target. FYI: If you're looking for toddler sandals, Target had some great deals, but your kid has to have slimmer feet than my Chase has - not a single one of the styles that were on sale would fit on his feet!

Stay tuned for part 3 of this story. Actually, I hope there won't be a part 3 and this will be the last sandal shopping of 2009!


  1. Don't even get me started on children's shoes! This was supposed to be the monthe when I could buy a new T-shirt ('cause I'm cheap, and such things have to be budgeted for)--and all three of the junior walkers in the family need new Sunday shoes, and probably school shoes as well. I might finally get that T-shirt next February--but only if it's on sale.
    Good luck on the sandal thing. Maybe it'll be a short summer and the trauma can end early! :)

  2. I refuse to pay full price for shoes anymore. Kids grow out of them too quickly--or loose them. :( There's a great one by our house--Once Upon a Child. They always have a good selection of shoes to go through. If Chase does it again, you might consider giving Once Upon a Child a visit. Hope this was the last installment in the series!

  3. I just have two word for you... zip ties! Work like a charm!
