Not only are they more expensive but they are harder to find. Boys clothing seem to be very limited and maybe that's why the price difference at the store. In my store I also have a harder time getting boys clothing than I do girl clothing in all sizes.

My son wears a mans 14 runner and he is 6 foot at age 14. Unfortunately by the time i know about the sales for shoes there usually is nothing left big enough for him.

Yes and there is limited selection too. I go in the stores and there are tons of clothes and shoes for girls and barely nothing for boys.

I can't begin to imagine where you guys are shopping but size for size the prices were equal here.

Maybe it's the store's way of balancing out the fact that most people are tempted to buy way more cute outfits for girls, so they cut back the prices. : )

Boys clothing and footwear is more expensive. When I did back to school shopping I got both girls outfitted head to toe for the same amount of money as I spent on my 14 year old son.

Yeah, I do shop at target and children's place mostly. I feel children's place has gotten really exspensive since my 8 year old was a toddler. But especially for winter clothes I shop for quality clothing, in the summer it doesn't really matter to me.

Definetly...I bought my 6 year old son a pair of Jordans and they were $65!! Boys clothes are way more expensive too. I do buy at Target sometimes and they have a lot of good deals.

Nope the boys are a bit more expesive than the girls. That's why my boy hads blue jeand and t shirts. Hard to rip up but the growing is the hardest part.

I shop at Target also and find it to be pretty even as well. Are you close to/have you tried shopping a children's consignment shop? I have a Once Upon A Child store close to me and I can usually find really cute things there for my son. It's mostly his play clothes, but sometimes I find "sunday" clothes there too. Once I took $30 with me and came out with a few pairs of swim trunks, a handful of really cute t-shirts and enough shorts to last the summer! (I was pretty pleased with myself that day.) Also, a lot of children's stores offer coupons to shoppers who are willing to give them their info. I've gotten some really nice ones from Osh Kosh and Carters a little while ago. The thing I find truly irritating is the lack of choices for boys. They get like 1/3 the space that girls get! I end up having to go to several different stores just to find enough stuff (that I like) to round out his wardrobe. That would be my one beef with Target....the little girls' shoe section has so much more variety, but Target shoes have worked really well for us and I wish they had more boys' shoes! They are really reasonably priced and cute.

My 3 yr old grows so quickly that we shop at Target, the prices there seem to be about equal... Boys toys seem to be more expensive to me
