My 13-year old son and his friends are very much into the hottest athletic footwear. My son just showed me this shoe from DC Shoes, and touted it as being the latest and greatest trend for young men. I told him the colors reminded me of a baby’s room. ”WHAAAT, no way,” he replied in that ‘mom-you-don’t-know-anything’ tone. You should have seen his face when I showed him this darling nursery (below) from sassysprouts.com. I think his response was something like…”Whoa.” Don’t get me wrong. I think its great that that the newest trend in athletic footwear is all about bold color combinations. But like any parent with growing kids, I’m not inclined to buy shoes that would go with only one outfit. This is one area where black, white and plain works just fine.
