Recently, we got Charley his summer shoes. He had some of these cool black Sketchers that I HATED from the moment we bought them. But it was all I could find at the time and every kid LOVES Sketchers...even Henry knows they are "cool" because: "Charley's shoe cool. on tv." This is the big reason I don't like them. I don't want to feed into the commerical impact and Charley had been asking for them. These new shoes that he has have no meaning to him...except that they make him jump REALLY high and run REALLY SUPER fast. And as a five year old I think these two criteria are the only two that need to be met...along with fit.
I have always enjoyed shoe shopping with my boys. Charley loves shoe shopping. He is all about trying them on. Anyways, I like to get my boys fun shoes - they are boys - there isn't much you can do with their fashion. But, I do think these new ones bring it all together...love that there isn't velcro or ties, the green is bright and fast, and heck, they match his bike....
It is all coming together. We are ready for summer - where ever it should lead - Charley will be skipping along in these cool shoes.
And Henry....this is what he is scooting around in these days...Can't not chuckle at a 2 year old in Chuck Taylors!
