Back to Shoe Shopping

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you have this many feet that need new shoes?


I do.

And by “need” I mean that the girl child wore a size 8 when I bought her shoes in February and the sandals she bought last weekend were size 10.  (Let’s not even talk about the time that she missed the Presidential Fitness 1 mile run time by 2 seconds and we discovered that her running shoes were a size 7.5 and when she ran it in some size 9’s a week later, she shaved 30+ seconds off that time.  Mother of the year?  Char Coester.  Confused smile)

Yes, this is a sponsored post.  BUT, I agreed to do it because it’s somewhere I regularly shop and a deal that I’m going to use myself.

I know how expensive back to school shopping can be (times 4).

I know what it’s like to drag 4 kids around the mall trying to find stuff that fits.

I know how frustrating it is to buy shoes that you think are a good deal and have them fall apart a month or two later.

I know how bad the whining gets about wanting “cool” shoes.

I know the feeling of trying to cram your kid’s foot into the shoes that fit fine last month.

I get it.  Oh do I get it!

So, that’s why I’m sharing.

Now through August 18th, Famous Footwear has BOGO 1/2 off PLUS 15% off (and, if you join Famous Footwear Rewards, it bumps it up to 20% off).  Just print this coupon to take advantage of the savings.

BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon

I swear to you that Famous Footwear Rewards IS NOT one of those annoying rewards programs that sends you spam every 10 minutes.  I’ve been a member for a couple of years now and all I ever get are rewards certificates and occasional coupons.  See?

You earn 1 point for every $1 you spend (in store or online) and can earn up to $100 back every year.  You also get a discount offer just for signing up (and remember that extra 5% off) and other discounts and perks.


So, I’ll see you there.  One store with shoes cool enough for my 12 year old (hint: her beloved Chuck Taylors) and sizes to fit everyone?  You can’t beat that.

  1. What’s really bad is when you look at your sons shoes and there isn’t much left of the toe because his feet have eaten through the mesh. It was even better when he said what, there’s nothing wrong with these.
