I have a confession to make. Shopping for children’s shoes makes me really, really happy. I’ve had a thing for shoes my entire life and I have officially transferred that obsession to my children’s shoes. So when Spring and Fall shoe shopping rolls around, I get an extra skip in my step! Last fall I discovered a new line of shoes in my world and have been hooked ever since. Check out www.vincentshoestore.us. I am particularly impressed with the numerous cool options in the boys shoes. Girls shoes are always cute, but boys shoes are tricky.
Vincent Shoes are fun, fashionable and functional kids shoes ranging in sizes from 6 months to 8 years. The Vincent brand offers a complete range of styles including pre-walker, indoor, outdoor, daily-wear, dress shoes and heavy-duty all weather and seasonal winter boots. I picked up my first pair of kick-booty Vincents in the fall and the boys are still wearing them every single day. The best part about Vincent shoes is that they are high quality, super cool styles and will last forever (think hand-me-downs, eBay and great consignment resale!). My twins’ shoes look brand new and it’s not from lack of use. So I checked out the new spring/summer line and picked out Oskar for the boys – LOVE the navy and brown flavors! I also could not resist the Hampus style for Isabel – she thinks they are so groovy! Vincent shoes are less expensive than Stride Rite and they are not afraid to offer some serious deals to savvy shoppers. They are offering a super Smarty 20% discount for ONE week only to CSP readers. Kixx shoes in Parktowne Village (across from Park Road Shopping Center) has a good selection of Vincent’s so you can check them out in person and they will honor the discount on this Vincent Shoe delio. Trust me, they will not disappoint!
To get your discount, either go to Kixx and mention the CSP 20% off Vincent’s deal. Or you can go to Vincent’s online shoe store and enter “CSP-20-OFF” at checkout. This offer will be valid for one week from 2/26-3/4 online or at Kixx. Happy shoe shopping!
P.S. Don’t forget to vote for CSP as Best Local Blog in Charlotte Magazine’s BOB Awards – see awards survey link and full post here. The deadline for entries is March 1st so we need your vote asap! We will be forever indebted:-)
What a great deal and with the Smarty Discount too! Thanks for mentioning boys shoes. I too am a shoe hound and have had a hard time with the lack of cute boys shoes! I’m heading to Kixx this weekend!!
Oooh, I like these! Boys shoes are tough to find and I’m over paying so much $ at Stride Rite. I will have to check them out.
Jen turned me onto Vincent a few months back. I found an ADORABLE pair of pink booties for Fallon to wear this Fall/Winter. I can vouch for the top notch quality of these shoes…they seem viturally indestructable and hold up well to toddler play! Plus I get TONS of compliments on them every time she’s sportin them about town. Grand brand of shoes, I’ll have to peep the boy selection for sure! Thanks for sharing this Smarty tip.
a little pricey for my tastes… I have a hard time spending $50 on shoes for a growing toddler. Even with the discount, they are still more expensive than stride rite. I’ll stick to the stride rite outlet in Concord Mills!
Every time I’ve shopped at Concord Mills Stride Rite, the cheapest pair of leather sandals I’ve found is $35. If you live in Charlotte and drive up to Concord Mills, the money you’d spend in gas makes your shoes more like $45. I’ll check these shoes out. Thanks, Jen!
I saw these in the Hanna Andersson catalog for spring. Love them!
My girls have been wearing these shoes for years–they are fantastic and really do hold up. In fact, my 2nd daughter is wearing the hand-me-downs and they still look great!
Tip Toey Joey also makes great infant & toddler shoes. They're especially good for new walkers b/c the soles are soft & flexible. Easy to put on & take off. Hold up pretty well & they're adorable. I bought ours from Babystyle.com but they recently filed Chapter 11. There are some other sites out there you'll find from searching Internet.
Too pricey! In this economy, I’ll stick with places like Stide Rite at Concord Mills and there are many sales going on at local children’s boutiques.
