I had a quite lovely brunch and walkabout on Sunday morning with Tribeca Mom, who was very much in a shopping mood—for sneakers, in particular. Because I love to spend other people’s money, I suggested a trip to Golden Goose on Broome Street, but she flat-out (and rightly) objected on the grounds that—cute as they are—Golden Goose sneakers are stupidly expensive. We wound up instead at the Converse store on lower Broadway, where unbeatable style sets you back around 50 bucks. I got a grey pair like you see here, except it came with black laces, which I can’t find anywhere online, but which looked really cool. And TM got this pair, white with blue stripes and suitably preppy.
