This year when purchasing shoes for back to school, support American businesses and invest in American made.

I admit it- I am a bargain shopper and it is especially hard for me to spend money on an item I know my kids are hard on. Their shoes really take a beating! The thing is, the older they get, the more I am realizing that if I just spent the money on the high-quality shoes in the first place, I WOULD ACTUALLY BE SAVING MONEY.  The low-cost big box store shoes fall apart after a month or two so I have to keep buying new ones. Most of the made in USA kid's shoes in this source list have warranties or offer repairs for a small fee. Not only will you not have to keep replacing worn-out shoes, but with a pair that has a longer life span, you will be reducing your trash impact.
