A few months ago on a sneaker shopping trip to Footlooker who knew it would lead to my lesson on popular kids sneakers! This lesson was by none other than my 7 year old. She searched through the store and the first pair were Jordans affectionately known as Js, next were KDs (Kevin Durant’s sneakers) and then Fruity Pebbles (Lebron James’ sneakers) Who knew? My teen was gearing up to try on a a pair of high top Adidas. He was unmoved by the Js. In light of his men’s size feet I was really glad.
This was the day I got served because my 7yo was ready to buy each pair and spend any amount of money. She is totally clueless on spending and earning money. According to her KDs were very popular with the kids at her summer camp. I was totally oblivious to the fact these were named after basketball player, Kevin Durant. Kids are so brand conscious I was floored, who knew this would be my kids?
One savings I did find for my DS is Nordstrom Rack. Nordstrom Rack carries a nice selection of men’s Nike track sneakers for less than $100.
