A pair of shoes which has seen better days. The story here is that, when I got them, about 8 years back, I liked them so much that I ignored the fact that they were a size too big. For years I’ve been wearing them, doing toe crunches while walking around in order not to lose them. The other day, I decided to wear them again, taking the kids to school, or so. I changed my mind quickly as I would have lost them within a few minutes riding my bike or running after my son going zigzag on his strider. I don’t think that when you have kids you should convert to solely practical shoes but a minimum requirement, when getting a new pair, should be that the size is right.
