9 years, 1 month.
You’re at the age where you are constantly wearing out your shoes, as well as outgrowing them.
For your “2nd half of 3rd grade” shoes, you decided it was time for a new pair of Chuck Taylors; like I have.
However, when we went to Kohl’s, we learned that Chuck Taylors are not made is size 4 for boys.
Instead, we had to buy you the slightly more cushioned upgrade:
Converse All Stars.
You got some really cool black ones with flames on the bottom.
And, they aren’t designed to lace up all the way, so they look extra cool!
