Fall/winter Wardrobe for a 12 Month Old Boy?

Hi ladies, So I'm trying to buy most of my son's clothes used and a huge fall/winter consignment sale is being held near me later this month. I'm trying to figure out exactly what he'll need for this fall and winter. I don't really want to overbuy, but I don't want to get into the season, forget something, and have to buy it full price. He's tall and seems to grow out of his clothes about a month (or more) ahead of schedule. He'll be a year old at Thanksgiving so I'm thinking the 12 month clothes will be too small by around Halloween...

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. My son's feet are growing so I have looked at 'Stride-Rite', Crocs, Timberland etc and I'm finding it hard to justify $45 or more for a pair of shoes for a 4yr old. Do you buy 'better quality shoes' (?) for your kids and if so what brands do you recommend please?
