We went on a mission to find out, can you have a budget AND still get the kicks you want most?
Melissa from Kicks & Fros advice in her Sneaker's 101
is to "create a sneaker budget and stick to it!"
A budget not only helps us not go broke, but can be also be a good tool to keep us focused on the kicks that we truly care about. The stuff we love is the stuff we will actually wear and will give us the most satisfaction.
A true WIN is when we get kicks that are really meaningful to us but don't put us in a position where we can't pay the rent :)
They give us joy with every wear AND we can still afford to go out for dinner & drinks with friends.
