Patrick's Shoes

These are Patrick's shoes:
I know I should should throw them out...
But I'm keeping them in case I come across an ugly beat-up shoe contest because I know we would win!
Don't worry--we got him a new pair today--but he was actually walking around in these! I didn't realize just how far gone they were but I cringe when I think he was wearing these to school. And the really scary thing is if I hadn't noticed, he would have gone right on wearing them!!

To him, they are probably just now "broken in"

Kids are not easy on their stuff are they?

My sons shoes are almost as bad. Guess you have just guilted me in to buying him some new ones today.

OMG that's hysterical! That is a quite loved pair! You would win the contest!

Jen said...

Boys.

I can't believe he was still wearing those! My girls would have complained long ago... must be a boy thing!

I hear those shoes screaming. They're screaming, "DUCT TAPE! DUCT TAPE!"

Boys are so weird. My husband would do the same thing if I didn't keep an eye on him.

Too funny! You know I have a few favorites items (I can think of an old shirt) that should probably be thrown away but you just attached to certain things.

Jennifer said...

Holy cow, those are beat up! lol. I can't believe he was still wearing them. Too funny. =)

Oh my goodness...those shoes are done!

That is funny; Sam had a pair similar to that and when I commented that he really needed new shoes, he was genuinely puzzled as to WHY. Odd creatures, boys.
