Where do you all go when buying shoes for your kids? I've been finding it next to impossible to find good quality, leather-free shoes for kids that look decent and don't cost a fortune.<br><br><br><br>
The only ones that I've found so far are New Balance and a few Sketchers, but they're pretty pricey. I'd rather not spend $50 on shoes that they'll wear out within a matter of months. If I have to, I will, but if anyone could help me out I'd appreciate it.<br><br><br><br>
I know some may suggest payless and places like that, but I really don't like those places because the shoes seem so cheaply made. They just can't be good for their feet.<br><br><br><br>
Any suggestions?

Payless does have some "cheap" shoes, but not all of them are. I've purchased several pairs, and they have not only lasted, they're comfortable.

I WISH that they carried those cute, cute non-leather kids shoes in my size. Damn these adult sized feet!

EquiPro - I know the feeling - Kid's shoes are so cute. Especially since I love the colour pink <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Yeah, when I was little, I always had Kmart, Walmart, Payless, etc shoes - they actually wear very well - I was an active little kid. But if you're still agains those places, I suggest converse - they have some nice well wearing non-leather shoes.

What about water-resistant shoes for children, that are made of breathable water-resistant material, rather than non-breathable synthetics that make your feet sweaty, and itchy and painful?

Ah, <a href="http://www.vegetarian-shoes.co.uk" target="_blank">http://www.vegetarian-shoes.co.uk</a> Many of their shoes appear to come in childrens sizes -- UK sizes 3 - 7.

I've heard that Stride Rite has excellent quality shoes, but I've never been there. I assumed they had only leather, but a friend of mine told me they have canvas and other non leather shoes too. I don't know what their prices are like or even if there are locations outside of Minnesota.

Well, I just found Stride Rite's website. I looked and looked and didn't see a single pair of non-leather shoes. How dissapointing.
