It’s supersticion but I always heard you should never buy shoes as a gift. The theory/supersticion is that as the soles of the shoes wear down so does the friendship. It’s silly but I’d still not buy shoes as a gift!!

@oracle:  I think shoes are cute!!! I bought my FH’s niece shoes for her first bday. She was also a 5! She pulled them out of the box and screamed and wanted to wear them!!! It was the cutest sight ever.

My sister-in-law actually reaaally wanted a pair of converse for my neice, so I bought them for her first birthday.  She looked so so so cute rocking her chucks and everyone loved them! I think they’re a very cute idea!

@oracle I got her some grey hightop ones. They don’t like to dress her in a lot of pink and they loved these ones. She looked so cute!!
