If you’re thinking about adding these Nike high-tops to a wish list, all I have to say is JUST DO IT! They’re super cute and so comfortable.
Incidentally…if you ask someone to get them for you, perhaps as a birthday gift, there’s a Filipino old wives’ tale I should tell you about. It says that if someone gives you a pair of shoes as a gift, you have to give them some money in return (even just a couple pennies will do); otherwise, badness ensues and the relationship suffers.
Of course, there’s also a Filipino old wives’ tale that says that if you fall asleep with wet hair, you’ll wake up blind… Yeah, that one caused me much anxiety as a child. 😬
So, I didn’t think much about the old wives’ tale regarding the shoe-money exchange until my college roommate gave me a pair of go-go boots as a gift. I loved them! — but I didn’t give her any money in return, and shortly thereafter our relationship grew tense. By the time she moved out at the end of the school year, we weren’t on good terms, and I blame the go-go boots!
