It seems that boys go through shoes more quickly than girls. I don’t know if it’s because they are in the dirt more, or in the case of my own son, just sort of like destroying them on their own for no good reason.
One day at the end of the school year he came home from school and had no shoelaces on one shoe. This despite the fact that he had left the house with two perfectly good shoes. Unfortunately, they were the kind of shoes that have self-enclosed shoelaces, so without them, the shoe was useless. No amount of wheedling, threatening, or bribing would induce him to tell me what happened to those laces. It remains a mystery to this very day.
So, like me, in case you need some replacement shoes for the fall, here are some suggestions.
Sperry Kids – Anchor HL Who said stylish and school can’t go together?
Vans Kids – Classic Slip-On. These never go out of style, do they?
Converse Kids – Chuck Taylor All Star Slip or
Converse Kids – Chuck Taylor All Star Ox. With or without laces, it’s their choice.
Merrell Kids – Jungle Moc These tough shoes will take him anywhere!
Nike Kids – T-run II ALT Shoes that look great and feel great too!
