Chicago Kicks

At age 10, my son is already wearing men's size 7 shoes. When he was just born, his doctor in England told me that he'd be Tall - as in 6 ft. 3" or taller. Since that day, March 27th, 2001, it seems like he's been on a neverending, beanstalk-fast growth spurt. He grows out of shoes and clothing every four to six months or so. And at age 10, he's already entered into that territory that all moms dread: he has actually started to care about what he wears.

As a treat this weekend, we rode our bikes over to Akin Chicago, where a celebration was held for the release of the Nike LunarGlide+ 3 exclusive Chicago colorway running shoe. We had fun checking out the latest shoes, Chicago marathon-inspired clothes and other unique sportswear. The ride there and back - from our home at Western/Fullerton to Fullerton/Clark, was challenging, but it was a beautiful, crisp fall day, perfect for bike riding.
The shoe's artist, Tara D., was inspired by the lakeshore and old Chicago signage. If you've got a tween/teen already caring about what he wears, Akin is a good place to catch the latest shoes - and this one-of-a-kind Chicago shoe is now available at Akin and the Nike Sportswear store only.
