Back-to-school deal: Kids shoes for under $10 at Payless
As fast as kids feet grow, buying shoes that are on the cheapie side seems like a good deal. Well, Payless is offering about 15 kids' styles for under $10. Among those being offered are a classic boy's oxford and girl's Mary Jane (shown here), unisex court shoe and slip-on canvas sneakers -- at the reduced price of under $10 each in all stores and Payless.com.
In addition, Payless is offering an extended children's sizing program for kids. Usually, youth sizes end at about size 4.5 but now that will go up to size 6 youth in select styles across the Payless brands. I have heard many mom friends, especially those with girls, who say that it is sometimes difficult to find an age-appropriate shoe. Payless is offering 20 boys, girls and athletic styles in the extended size 6 youth, which is the equivalent to size 8 in women's and size 6 in men's.
And here's a good deal: If you just don't feel like going to the store and want to shop online, you can have the shoes shipped to a nearby Payless store and there is no shipping fee. Of course, with kids' feet, it's always best to get them measured and into the right size.
We'll keep you posted on other back-to-school deals as they come along.
