I remember celebrating both Mother’s Days and Fathers Day in our house growing up. My mom would pick up something  from the store for Father’s Day, without my brother or I around. I don’t know if going with her would have made any difference in the type of gift we would get my dad though… I was not the one paying for it. My dad was not a slack-wearing, tie-knocking, flashy kind of guy. He was pretty simple when it came to his needs and he was more a boot-kicking, jean-wearing, t-shirt kind of guy.

So, Mom would normally get some sort of tool, gadget, or favorite movie. I remember asking her why we did not buy him a new pair or shoes or something other than boots. That year we got him the Rambo Trilogy on DVD, but the next year we presented him with Nike cross trainers (and my mom said it was her idea).

My son and I recently stopped into Famous Footwear and were both able to find shoes to fit each of our different styles. Where he wanted an all-black pair of canvas sneakers, I was in need of a bit more casual shoe. My wife even picked up another pair of Converse to add to her ever-growing collection. The point being, we were able to find something in the store to fit each of our different styles and needs.
