How I save money on my kid’s shoes

This post is sponsored by EasyKicks.  All opinions are my own.

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.

I’m so happy I learned about EasyKicks. I hope you will try them out as they truly are one of my favorite companies that I have come across.  My readers can even snag a discount!  Apply EZ10 at checkout for $10 off your first month. 3 month minimum required.

April 17, 2017

LOL! Yes shoes get expensive.

April 17, 2017

YES…shoes just cannot be handed down from kid to kid!

What an interesting concept. I’m checking it out. 🙂

April 17, 2017

Yes, it’s really cool!

April 17, 2017

Yes! Check them out!

April 17, 2017

SAY what now!! OH my gosh I have to actually do this for my girls my youngest I can’t keep up with how fast her feet are growing I will have to give this a try! Thanks so much for this now if they had this for teenage boy OH they would have me for sure! lol..

April 17, 2017

Yes this is seriously the best service ever! LOL

This sounds amazing! It is unbelievable how much kid’s shoes cost considering they grow out of them so quickly! I will definitely have to check this out!

April 17, 2017

Yes! Please do.

April 17, 2017

This is such a great idea! Why do boys grow so fast?! (I’ve only got one – a toddler and he grows so fast!) I really love how simple this is and that it makes it easy to keep the old shoes out of landfills by re purposing them! That is really awesome! Also, I bet it is a real treat for the boys to get a package directly to them in the mail!

April 17, 2017

Right?!! They absolutely love it!

April 17, 2017

This sounds awesome! My little man gets his shoes so dirty and they wear out so fast with all of his activity. I need to look into this program.

April 17, 2017

Yes,this service would be perfect!

April 17, 2017

Very cool! I definitely love the recycling aspect of the program! Kids’ feet do grow so fast, and yet they are pretty tough on their shoes, so hand-me-downs are not always feasible!

April 17, 2017

Yes very true!

April 17, 2017

I have never heard of this. I have triplets and we spend tons of money on shoes. I’m going to look into this more. Thanks so much for sharing!

April 17, 2017

Yes, you will love this!

How do I not know about this? What an awesome idea! I think I need to do this for my daughter!

April 17, 2017

LOL I know I just learned about it too

April 17, 2017

Love this idea so much. I need it for my child too, it seems like her feet grows so fast and I have to change her shoes every 3 months. I love it that they can recycle it for us.

April 19, 2017

I love this!! My girls are really starting to wear out their sneakers so fast. Although their feet seem to be at a stand still for growth, unlike their height, I still need to replace their sneakers soon. Will definitely have to check this out and do the math for my family.
