We have been more than happy with our shoes from Target. DD2 wears the ministar boots (got them clearanced last year), robeez and soft soled shoes from old navy.
Honestly, many of DD1's shoes come from Target and they've always been under $15/pair. They are fine. I really don't believe you need to buy stride rite or expensive shoes for kids.

I think if she outgrows them in a month, you might be buying them too small. Not what you asked... but we had to go to stride rite because DS has wide feet. They did the fit and left him plenty of room to grow. We got them in August or Sept and they still fit fine so I do feel like we got our $ worth.
Also, I found shoes at Children's Place on sale for like $5-7 a few times. Kohls has good deals, too.
I have been very happy with some shoes we got from Zulily
we just got some "jumping jacks" and I have always only bought pediped or stride rite and I would say these rank in comfort and quality.
on Zulilly they were about $20 a pair and I found some on amazon about that price.
Netty_3:Try www.6pm.com They have stride rite and a lot of others for discounted prices. I've bought myself a pair of NBs that were regular price $135 for $50...they were just last season's style.
urbanflowerpot:I also check in spots like Marshall's/Ross/TJ :)
Yep... they are hit or miss but they can definitely be a HIT...

Missing my little one lost at 9 weeks on 2.24.13. brokenhearted but not broken... d&c 5/21/13... Still Healing, Still Standing... MMC discovered 10/2/2013, TWINS, one day after my due date. D&C 10/7/2013. I still miss you, little ones.
Dear God, Since I couldn't hold my little one in my lap and tell him about you, could you hold him in your lap and tell him about me?
Thanks to whoever shared the 6pm site. I'll be checking that out!
Up to this point, Jack wears whatever tennis shoes are available at Target or Walmart. about $10 a pair. I found a pair I really liked at Target over the summer so I bought them in 3 sizes. Lol. He grows too fast!
Count me among those who won't spend $25/pair. Plus, pedi said "Don't spend a lot of money. The Target cheapies will be fine. There's not a magic shoe that will help him do anything developmentally, and cheap shoes won't delay him."
That was all I needed to hear!

Get these. They can wear them about 6 months (or more). You can find knock-off robeez everywhere. Zulily sells them all the time. And they don't fall off every 5 minutes!
Zulily, Rue La La, 6pm, Amazon shoe sales, Hautelook.
My kid only wears the expensive brands (Pedipeds and See Kai Run) and I've never spent over $25 for his shoes.
Look for sales online at amazon, 6pm, zappos, baby steals, or in store at kohls/TJMax, etc. We buy name brand, mostly stride rite, and don't pay more than $25/pair. Sometimes less.
I notice the difference when I wear my cheap target shoes vs. my name brand shoes and would imagine LO's feet are the same.
I got a pair of Jack & Lilly soft-soled shoes on BabySteals.com.
See Kai Run also often has shoes on sale for quite cheap compared to their retail prices.
