Recently, I was walking in the Botanic Gardens when a young boy, maybe aged about 4 or 5, ran excitedly past me. His father, a complete stranger, told me that the boy was wearing new boots, which makes him think he can run fast and fly. I looked at the boy’s boots as he continued to run off. They were a pair of regular red gumboots, and I said ‘They look very nice.’
This is exactly what a good new pair of shoes should do for you. They should make you feel good and happy, and feel like you have super powers.
