こんばんは。How are you?

Today something I have been waiting for arrived in our mailbox: new shoes! I fell in love with Feiyue sneakers when I was in China and brought a pair of white ones back with me to the States. However, they were quickly claimed by Bay (but I am happy he likes them!) so I was looking for some replacements. There are plenty of sellers on eBay and the prices were very reasonable – I bought these black sneakers for about $16 including shipping!

They are really comfortable and lightweight, but they don’t seem very durable but I think they are designed to be very flexible. It’s strange but the padding on the soles is biased towards the middle of the foot, so you feel very unstable… or you can think of it as giving you extra agility. 😆 After all, these are the sneakers favored by parkour enthusiasts and martial artists, not skaters.

Anyways, I love the look of the gummy soles even more than the white soles of the shoes that Bay took from me. And I had to tie the laces in the same way I’ve always tied them, which is simply that the pattern of the left and right do not match. I don’t remember when I started tying them this way, but it’s just something I always do now.

By the way, we don’t wear shoes inside our house normally – the only exception is with new shoes. 😀

I hope you had a nice day!
