I don’t have children, but from what I hear they’re quite expensive. Instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on new shoes over the course of a couple years (that’s how much a family spends on shoes, right?) perhaps you could consider these INCHworm shoes, which adjust in size to match your child’s freakishly fast-growing feet.
Most styles are just $40 and the shoes can be adjusted in half-size increments, so you basically buy, say, a size 1-2 which goes from 1 to 1.5 to 2 by just pressing a button on the side of the shoe and then pulling lengthwise. According to the INCHworm website:
Built right into INCHworm shoes is the iFit technology. The iFit technology allows you to GROW the size of the shoe with a simple push of the button. So eliminate unnecessary trips to the shoe store and provide your children with better fitting shoes that last up to three sizes longer. Inchworm shoes grow in half size increments. Just push the button on the side, and pull the toe of the shoe to adjust into the next size.
Seems pretty cool, provided the shoes themselves are durable. They must be, because they’re sold out of a bunch of them online.
