We're having a little shoe dilema over here.
Brady wore his new Adidas sneakers on the first day of school Aug. 30th.
A month and a half later, he can no longer where them because his toe is coming out the bottom!
This is his 4th pair of Adidas shoes.
He always wants the same style and color.
The people at the Adidas Outlet are very kind to give us 30% off everything in the store...
since he is a walking advertisement for them!
(I also may have mentioned to them that he would like to sign a contract with them someday!)
Anyway, I'm kind of a slow learner and finally realized I can't keep buying new shoes every month or so...
and probably not those Adidas ones!
I found a pair of Nike shoes that have a reinforced leather toe made specifically for tennis.
They were $75.00 but on sale for $60.00 which is way way more than I usually spend.
But if they could last six months...they would be worth it!
Called hubby at work...he said to get them.
Called my girlfiriend (cause hubby never says no)...she said I'm spending $35-40 every month on sneakers anyway....
So, I bought them.
And we made a new rule.
These sneakers would only be worn for tennis.
And, one month and two days later....this is what those stupid sneakers look like:
Brady only wears these to the tennis courts.
Granted, he plays almost everyday...but....
somedays for an hour, other days for two or three.
These shoes look like crap.
It's hard to see, but the tread is completely gone.
I've never returned shoes before...but I'd really like to return these.
Is that allowed?
I still have the receipt.
These shoes were double what I would ever spend on shoes for myself.
Don't get me wrong...I know that the court surface is rough and there's
lots of quick movements and lunging forward which will definately
wear down a shoe.
I just can't keep doing this every month.
Can I return shoes after 32 days of wearing them?!
Will I get my money back?
Or will I get the same shoes again?
Should I get the same shoes again?
We have a tennis store about 35 minutes from us called Fromuth.
Maybe we should go see what they would suggest.
Thanks for listening to me complain.
What would you do?
