Lucky me, in a way…when my son chose his grad shoes, he was smart about it, he knew that if he bought a reg pair of dress/semi casual shoes, chances were that he would most likely only wear them that grad night, and they would end up sitting in the closet for the rest of their life span *hahaha
so that day when we went grad shoe shopping, we had to hit the right place. To Livestock it was…since his size is a 9.5, I know any local sneaker boutique would be perfect, with a wide variety. After a few minutes of looking around, he showed me these HufPro’s, skate shoe…nice, clean/simple. & that’s the one he ended up graduating in. Now, he gets to enjoy wearing them when ever he wants, instead of being thrown away to the back of the storage room.
You may be asking your self, why did he say ‘Lucky me in the beginning of the story????
Well, I had to fork out for the grad shoes, and grad present, another pair of shoes…so I’m in a Win/Win situation, he gets to rock both pairs till they die, I get my monies worth, if he bought a grad shoe that he would never wear again, that would be money wasted *hehehehe, see what I mean ….
