“Mommy these shoes have changed my life”, said my seven year old after walking a few steps outside in his new Adidas Stan Smiths. “It’s like I am walking on pillows. There is a cushion between me and the concrete.” His joy over the shoes was palpable. So I just had to get my own pair of Stan Smiths. When I went to try them on I had trouble deciding between navy (of course) and gold.
My son wore his on our trip to Seattle even though he told me they were not a rainy day shoe. They performed well in the rain and are easy to clean.
