Rowan has been in need of bigger church shoes for a while. After looking at Target and Old Navy and coming up empty handed, I headed over to Payless. I was happy to see they were having their bogo sale. However, I wasn't thrilled with their selection, or their prices to be perfectly honest. I have gotten shoes for cheaper- that I like better- at Target, but they were pretty picked over on this particular day, and I needed shoes! After finding a pair that would work for church I headed up to the cash register. They were part of another sale, and didn't apply with the bogo, so I was only getting one pair. The cashier was busy, so I meanered back to the shoes, and that is when I saw the $5 price tag on a pair of shoes I hadn't seen previously. Were they church shoes, no. Would they work well enough, heck yes! Especially for $5! One problem. They were a size 8 and after Rowan had his foot measured he was apparently needing an 8 1/2-9. Hmmm. What to do? Call another store! Lucky for me, the Shopko down the street had a size 9 and they were now on hold for me. We went straight there and I handed over my $5. These shoes were marked so low because they were last years model. They originally retailed for $25. Needless to say, I am pretty happy with my latest sweet deal! I love a bargain!
