    Smile How to buy Clothes and shoes for inmates

    My Son has just been moved to Saginaw, only 1 1/2 hours away. Thank God! He said he can play sports but needs shoes. How do I go about doing that? Also can anyone tell me about Saginaw? This is our first experience with the system. He has never been in trouble before. Thanks for any help.

    He has to purchase those types of clothing items (items that are not supplied by the prison) himself from the store/commissary with the money in his account.

    Sorry, I don't know the cost. I know that my son is buying a tv and earphones before he buys anything. Kids, whatcha guna do!! lol anyway, I think it would be like out here. The bigger the size the more expensive. Mine son wears a 13!! He said that one of the places to order from is from JC Penny. But, he is new so maybe that is hearsay.

    My son bought himself some Nike shoes a couple months ago and they were around $50 from what he told me.

    When my guy bought shoes from store at Saginaw, they were $30.00, but they weren't great quality. They lasted him about a year though. Then he used an approved catalog to by a different brand. The block rep should have access to a catalog from which different brands of shoes can be ordered.
