Last week we popped into Shoes & Sox for a quick look around and stumbled upon the sale table. I wasn't really in the market to buy, though I was open minded if a bargain pair, in the right size was there waiting for us. Because I've always chosen quite plain, dark coloured clodhoppers for Angus, I was slightly taken back when the sales lady emerged from the store room. Happy she had found his size on sale and carrying a funky pair of fire engine red street shoes. Clarks street shoes, no less. A far cry from the boxy chunkers I wore for school shoes as a littlie.
So with that, we were both hooked. I loved that they were different and would go with a range of outfits and Angus loved her description of the shoes being a "fast colour". At which point she asked him to go for a test run to see just how fast they made him go. He took off out of the shop, into the main centre and back again. Now every time he puts them on, he thinks he's lightening McQueen and bolts away to show me just how fast he can fly in his new red shoes.
The tricky part about fast red shoes is they are hard to photograph... because they're always moving! So I managed to snap a shot of one dangling down while Angus was sitting at the table painting.
