Seriously they make him look like Kevin Bacon.

I'm i ment to go 'oh yes they are lovely well done for a purchase'

They are mental shoes ..............80's throwbacks.....

Everytime i see him in them I laugh, and that's not fair is it?

are they massive "Pump" trainers that make his feet look 10 times bigger than they are?

YWBU to tell him but YANBU to think it / laugh silently.

We need a picture of these shoes. I am a week overdue and a good laugh could get me going.

Oh please put a picture up......I could do with cheering up today!

If you tell him they are shit, he will probably like them all the more.

I thought that knowing how shit your parents thought your shoes were was actually a recognised measure of how brilliant they really are?

I know .................he has just walked out the house thinking they are great .

Even though eveytime I saw him , I said 'you look like kevin bacon'

Kevin Bacon? He used to be somewhat dreamy but is definitely past his best. I advise you to take a photo for future revenge purposes.

All the kids have them. My dd's have have the pineapple ones. DD1 has huge pink and silver sequined sparkly ones. DD2 has black shiney with illunious graffitti on and illuminous laces.

Kids eh

It's a rite of passage, being told that you look like a shit version of someone that was cool when your parents were kids. My mum told me I looked like a 'chubby Joan Baez'. shock
