    Hello everyone! :)

    I noticed that no matter how durable my little boy's Shoes are, they still tend to easily get damaged especially on the part of the soles. I GUESS it also relates to the energetic nature of children at his age. When he doesn't outgrow his shoes easily, they would last for more than a year. The shoes that he has outgrown usually have minor damages in them but the shoes which last for more than a year get really damaged because of frequent usage.

    I'm also curious if your kids' shoes also get damaged easily. How long do they usually last?

    My oldest's growth never really slowed until now. He outgrew shoes twice a year, it seems lol. So they were usually not too bad. Depends on time of year with the Canadian weather varying as it does. My youngest goes through shoes quite often, usually from active wear. So his shoes were replaced about as often. Neither wore cheap shoes either. Maybe they should have grown up barefoot like me lol.

    @JosieP@JosieP I think barefoot is the best way to go! Lol! Glad to hear I'm not the only one having problems about growth spurts and easily damaged shoes. Talk about a whole lot of money spent on shoes right? Lol! I notice how men's shoes are extremely more expensive than women's, so I imaging having male kids with very active growth spurts to be more expensive than having girls. :)

    My kids' shoes tend to last anywhere from six months to a year and a half, when they are outgrown. It just depends. Some shoes become "favorites" and get worn within a month. My oldest daughter, 5, has a pair of jordans that she has had over a year and they look brand new, and fit great!
