What is it about new tennis shoes (or “sneakers” if you’re from the east coast)? There’s something special about putting on a new pair of sneakers, especially white ones (or ones with white rubber trim!) Is it because a new pair of shoes seems to be full of possibility…an ally in our adventures, leading us to discover new places and accompanying us to familiar ones?
While I know that after today these shoes will never look the same (life is sure to leave it’s mark on them at some point!), I’m going to just delight in such a simple pleasure for a few more minutes before I let them take me out into the world.
(don’t even think of stepping on them!!!) :)
