i'm not usually a sneakers girl. although, that said - i do have around five pairs or so. i saw these in the kids section. and yes, i know - kids shoes are of lesser quality. but hey, if you can fit into them - why not? ... especially when you have a cheer leading routine to perform the following day. perfect reason to indulge in a new pair of sneakers. not to mention, the colours were quite fitting. purchase justified.
