Since I was a little kid, my mom has always told me I'm hard on shoes. I'd go through pairs of my little-girl Converse so quickly she eventually just stopped buying them for me. I wish I could say I've gotten better at my shoe care, but the truth is, I am hard on my shoes and I've just come to accept it as fact. If it's unclear what I mean, basically I wear my shoes so often and recklessly that I only get about an average six-month lifespan out of any pair.

It took me a bit to realize this was probably my best plan of action because let's be real, it's hard to resist investing in a really nice pair of shoes. But I try not to spend a lot on shoes meaning I've become an excellent budget shopper.
