The Fila black shoes is olijinal but the DC Shoes is Made-In-Korea (fake one lah). The Fila is almost twice the price of the white DC Shoes. The toddler’s shoes is RM119 (if I remember correctly ‘cos it was several months old already) but the white shoes is RM80 only.
The hairy leg is the eldest and the cute little hand is the youngest son. Their age differs by thirteen years.
The white shoe is size 12, DUA BELAS, TWELVE, cap jee, sap yi, åäºŒ !!!!!
Which is the reason why I had to tag along from KL to Ipoh to find the shoes that fit. We can’t find any from The Curves, MidValley, BB Plaza, Sungai Wang….And we got hopelessly lost in Ipoh and found them from Yik Foong (Ipohans, don’t laugh at the mention of ole Yik Foong, ok?)
We didn’t mind original DC or ES or any of those streetwear brands. We tried Nike, Adidas and God knows how many brands. They either don’t have the sizes, the designs, too narrow etc etc etc. Arrggh…I hate shopping with my atm and fussy kids. They took after him, studying every damn bit about the stuffs they need to buy. Reject and reject and reject. After a few shopping malls, cost is no longer a concern. I don’t freaking care anymore, as long as I don’t have to trudge into another shoe store and spend the next two hours and come out empty handed. RM199, also can. RM299, also can. RM399…errmm..must think twice la but when I am dead tired, I will just scream “Just buy lah, who cares anymore!”.
Tiu, with that amount of time, I can buy a whole wardrobe to last me till I go into coffin liao and they are still going from shop to shop to shop to buy that ideal pair of shoes.
Finally, we found them in Yik Foong. It is a dusty, mouldy, sad looking shopping mall in Ipoh. But they stock speacial sizes. And yay!!!! We fast fast bought two pairs. One DC and one ES (made in Korea lah). (BTW, the old lift in Yik Foong can take only five person in one lift. Lau beh anot?)
Haih…I don’t know what I had fed my kids to get a size twelve shoes which must have w i d e designs. My 10 years old wear a size 38, my 14 years old wear a size 41, the eldest size 46! Me? I wear a size 39 (size 7) shoes only. Used to be size 5 but after 5 kids the feet grew two sizes. 🙂 Go figure. Like my mom used to say : You are all wearing boats, not shoes!
Don’t you hate shopping for shoes? And if you know where to get big sizes shoes, do tell!
