I am only mildly excited by shoes. That may be because I have to wear flats if I want to walk without pain. At any rate, I was really surprised to find out that my youngest son really likes shoes! He takes care of them way better than I do. His shoes always look new.
Jeff particularly likes athletic shoes in splashy colors. I got him a pair of screaming yellow Puma's for Christmas last year that practically glow in the dark. It looks like he likes these snow-white shoes (that Celia got him for Valentine's Day) just as much!
