On the way to Christmas Eve, my son showed me his shoes. “Grampa bought me these shoes in 1994.”
Mark told me he wore them to his high school, college and grad school graduations. He wore them at the baptisms of each of his 4 children.
He proposed to his wife in these shoes.
Mark added the burgundy laces for Xmas and he showed me the socks I knit him for his 40th birthday. It was sweet to hear the story of his shoes.
This morning he said they are Johnston & Murphy Conrad wingtips.
