Today I'm wearing the other pair of my dad's shoes - black Saratogas
They are black Saratogas
Sometimes shoes are more than shoes. My dad always wore Allen Edmonds. In fact, he bought me my first pair of Allen Edmonds and it has gone on from there. I bought my son his first pair of Allen Edmonds also and I'm hoping the tradition continues.
