Academy has great shoe selection and in the weekly sales paper there is a section of shoes on sale. I have found several great pairs of shoes at Academy. In fact, I picked up my youngest daughter 2 pairs of Adidas at Christmas last year, for ten bucks a pair. This is even cheaper than walmart.
My husband and son go to Academy for rubber boots and hunting boots as well, a wide selection at the most affordable prices around.
When I needed steel toe boots for work, I searched all over town, from Wal-mart all the way to the boot shops where prices go into the hundreds. Finally I had the bright idea of Academy. There was about 10 pairs of boots there for woman, prices starting at 20 bucks. I did buy my work boots at Academy, 4 months ago and have been very pleased.
