I am very happy to hear that they put some bigger shoes on him. However I don't know anyone who buys their kids Jordans that are snug at the tiem of purchase. Jordans are expensive. when I buy them, I get them as big as I can get away so they will last a long time.
That being said, my ds has three pairs of jordans and a pair of timberlands (three out of the four were hand me downs, but still--they are nice shoes). If I dress him to go out and he is wearing his jordans THAT FIT or are close to fitting, and someone thinks the sole is too thick for him and changes him into some kmart sneakers, we are going to have big, big problems. the kmart sneakers are for backyard romping. when he goes out, the nice clothes/shoes come out --- for a reason. I would find it incredibly rude if someone were to take his nice clothes or sheos off and dress him in cheap crap just because they thought it was more comfortable. ooooh, I would be mad.
I am happy to report that I have not again seen the old way too small shoes
Oh and I don't think they try the shoes on him when they buy them- his older 13yo sister goes to the mall (practically lives there ) and buys him matching pairs- I think she just estimates the size.. but the most recent ones she bought him (which he has been wearing daily) are still too small for him.. but not as small as the old ones.
I don't know if I should say something about these shoes or just leave it alone. His toes are right up against the front of the shoe (touching it).
