My daughters shoes always last 5 mins
November 4, 2009 1:03am CST
I went shoe shopping on Monday to buy school shoes for my kids. They cost a futune as I firmly believe in getting them fitted so not to damage their feet, I bought three pairs of shoes plus a pair of trainers and the whole lot cost me around £120. Anyway my kids went to school yesterday and wore their new school shoes. They come home and as usual my youngest has already scuffed the front of her shoes. So I have just spent £35 on a pair of shoes that last one day. It is really frustrating she did this with the last pair, why is it she just can't pick her feet up. Bless her I love her to bits but she costs me a fortune in shoe leather. Does anyone else have this trouble or found a solution?

Well I have to be honest I was quite clumsy as a kid so my shoes were often scuffed, they were polished just before I used them and it seemed to help, then there were several home remedies, I can't remember them all, I went and looked it up now and found these two sites, I hope they help: http://www.helium.com/items/1282133-how-to-remove-scuffs-on-your-shoes http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf416198.tip.html

thanks for the links I will take a look I am sure they will help, she scuffs her shoes the first time she wears them everytime I buy them. It gets so costly. Especially having to fork out £120 every 6 weeks, which is roughly $225. I wish there was a way to force her not to do it. But I guess its just one of those things.
