In fact Sam points out that the only reason she needed to buy new shoes was that her daughter had grown out of them - and that they still had plenty of wear left in them!
Says Sam: ‘Compare the pair - last year’s ALDI’s shoes versus this year - I highly recommend them - only $15 and the outlast the child!’
Wow! Many were blown away by Sam's review, sharing their awe at Sam's review.
One told New Idea Food: 'I bought my little boy $80 shoes and feel like an idiot now! I wished I'd read this first - I would've bought the ALDI shoes for sure.'
Said another: 'I had to throw out my son's $60 shoes after six months last year - the velcro stopped working and they were useless. So I wound spending $120 on shoes last year - I'm going to give these $15 ones a whirl next.'
It's certainly food for thought! And for more budget buy advice, make sure you're following Mums Who Budget & Save on Facebook - you'll love it!
