Nowadays most of us buy sneakers online more than we do in store. Back in the day you had to try them on to make sure they fit. By fit, we mean, Moms wanted them at least a half size too big so they would last longer. If the salesmen was a true boss, he'd ask if you wanted to wear them home. This, of course, had you begging and pleading with Moms, but usually, you had to wait for the first day of school. Now that we think about it, we actually looked forward to the first day of school because of that. Damn, parents are always thinking ahead.
