Way back when Larry and I were just friends I thought Larry’s taste in shoes was amusing. That changed when we started to become more serious. I could deal with the scary knee high black combat boots and the ugly orange snake skin Doc Martins and the maroon boots with bubble toes that made them look like they could belong the Ronald McDonald; it was the beat-up old school Vans that looked like Mr. Rogers style boat shoes that I couldn’t stand, and he wore them all the time (partially because he knew I hated them, and I think he liked to torture me).
Time passed and fortunately medical school didn’t allow Larry to wear his favorite shoes too often (who would risk getting blood on such a precious item?) I was hoping Larry was beginning to forget about them when we met his sister Keri’s fiancé (now husband). Keri warned us that Matt was a lot like Larry, and she was right, they’re alike right down to their love of old school Vans! Larry and I found some white slip-on shoes for Keri that we drew a checkerboard pattern on so she could match Matt’s favorite pair of old school Vans.
Now Keri has returned the favor!
I could not stop laughing when I saw these. It looks like Baby Ford is going to follow in his Father’s footsteps!
