Why dad needs it
: When your dad was our age, he had about five options when it came to sneakers. Now it's time for you to impart some wisdom upon him. He may have yelled at you for wasting your time on sneaker blogs before, but it's your time to shine. Whether it's a cheap pair of canvas kicks or a luxury label, get him something that he'll wear until it's time for those old person orthopedic shoes.
