She wants Jordan superfly 2 id in red. She is turning 16 in April. Yes her foot has pretty much stopped growing and she can wear shoes for awhile now but $180?! When she asked, I laughed and said that would be her only present. She also wants a dog and I told her no way. She counters that the dog would be free and I said after buying all the accessories, including a large pen because I don't have a fenced in area and the dog is not staying inside all the time, it would be almost as expensive as the shoes. I am not made of money here people. We do OK but only because I don't buy $200 shoes.
What does everyone think?
ETA: I told her that I would buy her the shoes but that's all she will get. I told her she has till the end of March to decide if that's what she really wants and then we will have to order them online. Her birthday is in the middle of April.
Yep. Exactly what I said. She said well the are name brand, you have to expect name brand to be expensive. I told her I do expect name brand to be more expensive, especially Jordan's, that's why I asked how much lol.
Quoting baquick: Those are tennis shoes right?
Hell no. No shoe is worth that (except high end work or cowboy boots), especially tennis shoes.
