Now it’s my turn…

I remember my teen-age years when I used to egg my mother to buy me the shoes in fashion. You see, I never really developed a liking for clothes and I’m not picky when it comes to it until now.

But I was extremely brand-conscious. Especially when it came to my footware. (Until now.)

I remember during high school, I dragged my mother to Greenhills to buy me Sperry Topsiders, Sebago Penny Loafers and Reebok shoes.

Actually, this dragged on to my law school years, when I had her buy me, again in Greenhills, Dr. Marten’s Shoes. Not the boots, of course. Just the short lace-ups that proved extremely reliable because I commuted to law school.

I finally got to buy my own shoes when I got a job. I stuck mainly to Dr. Marten’s because they have designs I can actually use in court. Of course, I could afford my Florsheim, Bally and Nike, etc.

Yes, I know. I really picky about my footwear.

In some twist of fate, however, I was in Greenhills yesterday. Of course, I bought some accessories for my iPod (another metal case and a strap I can use for biking). But as regards footware, it was my turn to buy one for Bea.

Bea’s becoming just as brand conscious as I am. I bought her Christmas present- Havaianas Flip-flops. Looking at these slippers closely, they were just extremely overpriced Spartans or Beach-walks. I mean, extremely overpriced (by at least 10 times)!

Well, I could not protest. It was, as I have figured by now, my turn… and my little girl is growing up… oh no!

Wish me luck.

  1. And girls are typically more fashion conscious than boys. I’d say you have your work cut out for you. 🙂

    Merry Christmas. 🙂

  2. Hope she doesn’t ever ask you for a complimentary credit card 🙂

  3. @Ron Allan: Yes they are. Yes I do. Merry Christmas also!

    @LG: YES… A seven year old asking for Havaianas flip-flops!

    @Senor Enrique: That’s where I draw the line. Besides, I neither had nor asked for an extension card from my parents, though they gave me one later in life.

    To All: Happy Holidays!
