Shoes.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

The kids shoes have pretty much undone me this summer. If you're a mom, I'm pretty sure I don't even have to explain that statement, but I'll try anyway.

#1 It's really fun to buy cute styles of shoes for your kids--especially the girls. So when we were out shopping in the late spring, I bought a pair a piece for my girls of on-sale, slightly impractical but very cute, shoes.
#2 Kids need comfortable shoes to play in. So when I bought the inexpensive big-box version of the boy sandal for my boy, and he developed blisters, I needed to go and buy another pair of shoes for him immediately.
#3 There are not very many attractive boy shoes out there. So when we went back for another, more comfortable pair, he chose the ugliest pair possible and I let him get them, but I shutter every time he puts them on!
#4 Kids love to play barefoot during the summer. That means that the two other pairs of shoes I bought for my youngest spend a lot of their time lost in the yard or neighbor's yard or woods behind our house.
#5 Kids feet GROW! and quickly. So those slightly impractical but very cute shoes I bought in late spring? Yep, you guessed it, neither pair fits its owner anymore.
#6 Kids shoes are expensive! So even going by the "one pair of Sunday shoes, one pair of sandals and one pair of tennis shoes" can sometimes be completely overwhelming when you have three kids.
#7 Oh, and just for the record, when we were shopping at an outlet store and I found a very handsome pair of very on-sale boy sandals that the boy swore were comfortable, I bought those too. (3 pairs of shoes for a boy during summer...shameful, I know!)

So what's a momma to do when fall comes around and it's time to try the shoe-buying thing AGAIN?!
Well one solution is to find a store with lots of choices, lots of coupons, and a great BOGO 1/2 off deal.
That would be Famous Footwear for us.

I mean with the BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon and the extra sales (some shoes are up to 50% off!) surely I can find some victory in this seemingly impossible shoe game for my kiddos!
And there's more! You can sign up for the Famous Rewards Program and save even more (20% instead of 15%) AND if you click over to ther website real quick, you can sign up for their email promotions and receive a $5 off coupon in your inbox. Sweet!
So click on the above coupon, print it off and redeem it in-store between 8/2 and 8/18 and breathe a sigh of relief about the whole shoe thing. At least until next season!
