Way back in grade school, my parents would always buy me a new pair of white canvas sneakers from Tretorns and Keds every year for casual weekends and sometimes wear it while playing golf instead of my ugly black spike shoes not until 6th grade, when my dad got me a present from the Laurel Shop. It was love at first sight and I couldn't stop wearing them eversince.
I thought of looking for it when I flew south for the holidays just to find out mom gave it away 5 years ago.
Earlier while waiting for my friend Mike for lunch at the nearby mall, I decided to check out Jappy's shop and ended up getting myself a Kingston twill tipped sneakers -it's pretty low profile in red and blue stripes.
(Love the red and blue stripes and this aint no congressional campaign.)
I love them and I don't care that they're painfully uncomfortable and half an inch my size, they couldn't be more uncomfortable than my vintage suede moccasins dad gave me last October.
On my way back to work, I spotted this guy in his aqua Vespa with his boston terrier and discretely took a photo of him using my humble ixus. A perfect slow Tuesday in the metro - I sometimes wish life was always this easy.
