Bring a pair of socks. When shopping for kids shoes, pack a pair or two of socks in your purse. I can't tell you how many times I have made it to the store only to realize that I forgot to pack the type of socks that our daughter would be wearing with the shoes. We only buy one or two pairs of shoes for each size she wears (we are blessed to have many hand me downs from friends). Therefore, we want the shoes we do buy to fit well. Having the socks on hand keeps me from running back to the store to make a return later, thereby also saving my gas and time!
