While doing Back-To-School shopping for shoes, Evan INSISTED on getting a new pair of Pumas. Let's face it, I don't like A LOT of the styles offered by Puma. Jeremy on the other hand is sorta, you know, brand loyal. Hence the reason that Evan wanted them - to be just like his daddy. Oh my! But if I had it my way, he would be in a preppy pair of shoes from the Gap. We searched EVERY WHERE for a pair that I could live with. Let's just say he didn't quite like these at first. They were too preppy for him. Even though he doesn't know what preppy is. But once I explained it to Evan that these were Pumas, he was totally on board. So Evan is happy and his mama is happy too. I LOVE THESE shoes!! Preppy but yet a little edgy!
