Asher has one pair of Stride Rite shoes that he wears with everything. He has 2 pairs of TOMS in bigger sizes for the future and I just ordered 2 pairs of Stride Rites in bigger sizes. So he'll probably have 2 pair at a time that fit going forward but he only has 1 pair now.
My mother goes majorly crazy with baby clothes, accessories, and toys whenever she finds things at Ross, Marshalls, or TJ Maxx. It's kind of maddening. I always feel really awkward about all the stuff my mom buys that we never use
I have bought DD 3 pairs of shoes - Robeez that she no longer wears, Stride Rite sneakers in her current size that were recommended by her PT, and the next size up because when I got her sneakers it was BOGO 50% off.
She also has a bunch of hand-me-downs 2 sizes up from a friend. Since only one of those are high tops, which is what DD needs, we'll see what use she gets out of them.

Aria has 7 pairs that fit right now. Two pairs are Robeez (boots and mary janes), two are sandals (one for dressy outfits and one for everyday), one pair of little white sneakers (that she doesn't wear often. They were gifted to us, and really have no give in the sole), one pair of black dressy mary janes, and a pair of Stride Rites that I just ordered.
She just started walking, so I felt like we needed some good "walking" shoes for her (the Stride Rites). The Robeez are ok for walking, but I wanted more protection for her feet since we'll be outside a lot. The sandals are pretty good too, I suppose.
I really only plan on her having two or three sets of shoes at a time. She just hasn't had much of a growth spurt in her feet in a while, so we have summer and winter shoes. She's been in a size 3 or 4 since about November.
Sky has 6 pairs of shoes that she can currently wear and 2 pair that are too big. She has a pair of grey/pink Nike's, black/red Jordans, White Keds, Neon Pink tennis, Lime Green tennis, and pink dress shoes. I get a lot of her shoes on sale because I shop ahead. Only her Jordan's (DH had to buy them) and her Nike's were more expensive the rest were under $12. She's been wearing most of these shoes since December and she isn't close to growing out of them so I feel like I've gotten my monies worth because they've lasted for over 5 months.
If I could only have two pair I would have the Keds and a pair for church.
She has 5 pairs of Toms, 2 pairs of white sandals, colorful sandals, tan uggs, black flats, brown flats, and white sneakers. All but 2 were handed down or gifted to her.
2 that fit her...both StrideRite shoes. We have a couple pairs for when she outgrows the size 4 but it will be a while. We just got them for her like 6 weeks ago.
I have no idea how many pairs were given to us that we never used. I didn't put shoes on her except for maybe three times before she was walking outside.
I want to say like 5 or 6 pairs that would fit her right now. Only because of hand me downs/borrowing though. I've only bought her 2 of those pairs, one pair of silver stride rites that I got an amazing deal on, and a pair of white dress shoes I found for 50 cents at a yard sale so why not.
ETA- crap, I forgot I did buy one more of them, some Robeez white sandals off eBay :)
