Little Kids Shoes - Worth the Money?

Hi My son is almost 4yrs old. I have purchased most of his shoes from Target or Wal-Mart in the past. Recently a mom was talking about how bad it is for your kids developing feet to buy 'cheap' shoes.

Do you...

NO credit cards to fall back on and worried about being able to even get to work. I recall these days. We did our best to not spend a dime. We could not borrow money, we had no credit. I was worried about the Toilet paper situatuation. Thank goodness we had jobs, even thought we were barely making it. We had a place to live. Our bills were slightly late, but...
