Why are children attracted to these awful looking, hard-to-clean light up shoes? Why are moms and Mimis compelled to give into these desires (or even encourage them – MOM!)?
As I pondered these oh-so important questions, I put myself in William’s shoes (pun intended).
I guess walking around with lights on your feet could be as gratifying as walking around with 4″ heels. It’s flashy. That said, my shoes are hidden by work pants; his shoes literally flash.
I guess running up to your friends at daycare to show them your light up shoes is like walking into the office and hoping people notice your brand new kicks.
I guess tapping your friends’ light up shoes with your light up shoes is like high-fiving your coworker when you take a late lunch to capitalize on an awesome shoe sale at Off Broadway Shoes.
And I guess William’s Spidey shoes are easier to clean than satin heels or lace covered pumps.
