I have 3 boys. They all grow so quickly and don’t stay in clothes or shoes very long. This is a dilemma mostly for my wallet. My kids barely stay in shoes for more than a season and the older they get, the quicker they are transitioning out.
Hand-me-downs are a great concept and we do use them for many clothing items but, boys shoes are definitely the hardest thing to hand down. We like our kids to have fun outside and not always worry about them getting dirty while still having a nice, quality pair of shoes.
Well, we have found the PERFECT solution: EasyKicks. This company is truly genius. Here is how it works….
Your child is shipped a brand new pair of Nikes or Converse shoes in a personalized mailer. This is the cutest thing and my children loved that it was addressed to them.
Your child can wear them out or just exchange them for another size or style at any time. Amazing.
You simply pick a new pair of shoes that you want to try. Shoes will arrive in 3-5 days.
Place the old shoes in a prepaid return bag that they send to you. Place it in your mailbox and they will be recycled.
My favorite part is that you can send another pair of shoes your child no longer uses and they will give them to children in need. Most of the shoes when sent back are recycled to be used in playgrounds and sports fields through Nike Grind. How amazing is this?!
Best part: This on-demand membership is only $20/a month. When our family did the math on how much we spend in one year for each child. This is a big savings for us. We don’t have to have anxiety about our kids ruining wild in their good shoes or making them last as long as possible. It’s a win-win.
