I mean shoes that I would wear with a suit. The stuff they are offering for kids these days is deplorable. He may just have to wear BB loafers until he fits men sizes.

I think I got my first pair of lace up dress shoes when I was 20.

Don't anyone of these facking kids walk anymore, when I was younger I LOVED walking from upper west wide/midtown all the way down to the village and further south. On a similar tangent, unemployed moms shopping with their single kid (in a stroller) but with a nanny tagging along, doing all the work confused.gif

I got my first pair much younger but IIRC Stride Rite and Buster Brown were offering some muuuch better looking stuff 30 years ago.

I think zipped boots are a good compromise for the younger kids, if trying to avoid another pair of velcro strapped shoes

Let's just close the thread, the verdict has been rendered.

Yeah, a whiny, bitchy, overly moody transplant from another big city. Not like NY needs another one of those...

One Manton is enough.

I would never wear zipped boots.

In fact, I dislike zippers altogether. Me and my best buddy had a bad experience with a zipper once. Button fly for me now.
