We bought school supplies weeks ago. But somehow I missed the fact that Will had outgrown his school shoes. Naturally, I didn’t realize this until the DAY before! So the night before school we spent 2 hours going to 5 stores to find the perfect pair of shoes. This was a first for us since I normally stay ahead of the game and buy online.
Here we are pre-shopping, happy faces enjoying dinner!
Problem #1: Mister still needs velcro. (I fell behind on my shoe tying lessons this summer!) Problem #2: Velcro is few and far between. Four stores later we were out of options in his size. Will’s bestie’s mom said Jackson uses these no-tie laces. Will agreed “since Jackson does”. Back to store #1 and we tried every shoe on in his size, with laces, and he decided which one was the least offensive (oh, the joys of sensory issues). I suspect these are a size too big, but he said these were the only ones that felt good to him. And at that point I did not care. I’m still trying to digest how much I paid for these suckers. But at that point I probably woulda paid alot more to just be done!
They are pretty spiffy. And according to Will “they made me run so fast no could catch me during tag!”. Sounds like a winner to me!
