The Adventure of Shoe Shopping with Kids and How I’m Bringing Back the Fun

As a lover of shoes, I was asked to review with a gift card. All opinions expressed are my own.

I love shoes! Before I became a mom I would spend hours shoe shopping! I would find it so therapeutic to walk through aisles of shoes, and try on tons of different pairs to find the perfect pair to coordinate with my outfit.

Fast forward 10 years and two kids later, and shoe shopping is a very different experience! Let me tell you about my last shoe shopping trip with both kids: My son is very particular about the style and fit of his shoes. We spent what seemed like a lifetime looking at all of the sneakers in the boys sections, searching for just the right pair. Meanwhile, my little girl was having the time of her life running up and down the aisles pulling boxes of shoes off of the shelves. While chasing her down for the 103rd time, my son finally found a pair that he liked! Obviously the only one in his size was the “sample shoe” and the match was no-where to be found. While the store clerk went in the back to look for another pair in his size (and I think take a lunch break) more running ensued and more shoe boxes ended up on the floor. When the clerk came back and told me that there where no shoes in that size, I couldn’t decide whether to cry, yell or just run right out of that place. I think I did an awkward combination of all three!


I recently discovered,, a website that helps make shoe shopping the fun experience it used to be! They have shoes for women, men, children and even infant and toddlers. A feature I really like is that there are great ways to refine your searches by price, popularity, size, gender, customer ratings and more. This makes finding the perfect style of shoe (even for my son) easy! They even have Keen’s for kids, which is a very reliable brand that we always know we can rely on.

They also have some great sales that make the perfect pair of name-brand shoes for my son a fantastic price. I think my favorite feature is the customer reviews that help you to know exactly what to expect! If you don’t happen to get exactly what you want it’s an easy fix because Shoebuy offers free shipping both ways!
