A Pair A Year

21 Feb

Damien Crow is very picky with his shoes.  I think he gets this from his Paps.  Nowadays, shoes for kids cost as much as shoes for adults.  So we have limited his shoe collection to just one pair a year! hehe

This was his first pair of shoes.  This was a gift from his godfather, Gian.  Thanks so much for this pair, Gian! He loved these shoes so much and used it ’til it died a natural death.

Then we moved on to a pair of Adidas Toy Story shoes.  We found this in HK 🙂 My only concern with this pair were the laces. He kept tripping in them.

Damien’s shoes at one to two years old.

We couldn’t resist buying him a pair of these limited edition Adidas Storm Trooper shoes.  So we bought a size slightly bigger to use for the next year.  The moment he started wearing these, he immediately said goodbye to Buzz even if the Buzz Lightyear shoes still fit.  He wore these Storm Trooper shoes until he couldn’t walk properly anymore because it was too tight.

It was so difficult to buy him the next pair for his third year.  Every pair we would show him at the store, he would always say, “No. Star Wars shoes only, please.”  We convinced him that these black Vans were the Darth Vader shoes.  One look at these shoes and he was singing the Darth Vader song.  Yes! We found the next pair! 🙂

 I wonder what he would be wearing next year…

Today is January 15, 2013.

I knew the time had come when he would have to give up his Vans.  Two days ago, when I picked up Damien from school, he was just wearing his socks.  LOL!  His Vans were just too tight already.  So I rushed to get him a pair.

Classic white Chucks.  He loves them 🙂  What’s in store for us next year? 🙂


Damien’s shoes at four years old.

I know it hasn’t been a year yet but we just had to get Damien another pair of Vans! hehe It was on sale in SM last week. And it’s easier to wear because it has no laces 🙂




Damien’s shoes at four years and nine months old.

These Vans really lasted so long.  Damien still wears them up to now 🙂  But just in case it gives up soon, we have our back up pair.  These Pumas are a winner.  We got them at almost half the original price in Hongkong.  Damien calls them his tiger shoes 🙂



Damien’s shoes at six years old.

 The new school year is about to start and Damien is now Grade One 🙂  These PE shoes from CSA are a requirement.  They actually look really cool and comfortable.  I also like the idea of the kids having uniform shoes as well 🙂  You’re a grade schooler now, buddy!!!


Damien’s PE shoes at six years and seven months 🙂

I don’t know when exactly this obsession began.  The Back To The Future obsession.  Maybe late last year.  But ever since Damien watched the trilogy, there is no one he’d rather be now but Marty McFly.  He chose this pair for 2016 because he said Marty used these shoes for skateboarding when he went back to 1955 🙂


Damien’s shoes at seven years old.

Ok, I know we’ve strictly followed this rule for the past six years.  But this 2016, we’ve already bought his second pair of shoes.  OH NO.  Damien is starting to appreciate shopping and shoes now.  LOL! All because of Marty McFly!!!  When we saw this pair in H&M, he told us it’s exactly like what Marty wore when he went to the “future”, AKA 2015.  Fine.  One more pair for 2016.  One for “past Marty” and one for “future Marty”.  No more shoes til the end of 2016.


Damien’s second pair at seven years old.

Damien requested for another pair of shoes this year… but NO.  We need to put our foot down.  LOL.  He wanted Marty’s Nike shoes, the one he was wearing at 1985.  Dante had a brilliant idea of spray painting his old white PE shoes… Voila.  Instant Nikes.  Hahaha!!! Thank you, True Value.  And thank you, Dants! 🙂 It’s just like the real thing! 🙂


Damien’s Marty McFly 1985 Nike inspired shoes at seven years old.

And just like that, it’s 2017.  Damien’s first pair of Nike shoes.  The real Nike. Haha! Happy New Year, buddy! We know you’ve always wanted these.  And no, you can’t use them for your boxing sessions, please.


Damien’s shoes at eight years old.
