Hot pink shoes?

These are nike free runs. $120 sneakers that my daughter just had to have, but then never wore. They're brand new and she found them in the back of her closet. She told me to give them away.

We'll my 4th grade son saw them, tried them on and wants them. The whole boys wear pink thing is very popular. He wears pink socks and shorts...but they're all boys and men's clothing. These are not.

But is this going too far? Lol

I wouldn't let my boy wear them. But we live in assholeville where kids and adults would tease him about it until graduation and beyond.

Yeah, I'm gonna go with, " who cares " other than your son. He's the one wearing them. Let him...why let an overpriced pair of shoes go to waste?

Call it salmon and not pink, cause salmon is one tough fish.

I wouldn't spend that much on sneakers. I wouldn't give a crap what color they want to wear though.

Lol, there is no debating that they're pink though.

And it's really not even that they're pink, because he wears pink. But are they obviously girls shoes?

He's not going to catch the gay from some pink sneakers.
