This is a story about a young boy who LOVES his worn-out shoes! He has accomplished so much in these red kicks. The shoes have a tear from skateboarding, colourful splatters from painting, they have "soul in their soles. Joy in each hole." He is definitely not interested in shopping for a new pair with mom...until he tries on the bright yellow new sneakers with "Shiny, shimmery, laces long and strong..."

A wonderful story of a young boy who reminisces in memories, yet embraces change!

I absolutely love Katie Kath's black ink and bright watercolour palette.
