That's all I was trying to point out. You can go cheap and sometinmes that's counterproductive. I'm not suggesting that buying $85 Teva sandales or $125 Nikes are the answer. I'm just trying to foster a more reasonable mindset to dollars spent. Cheaping out is not necessarily going to save money.

My point is that if the kid doesn't take care of the good quality stuff, she won't be getting more. Trash the good shoes? Then don't whine about getting stuck with crappy replacement ones.
