I had previously written about the Star Wars X Adidas Originals 2010 line, and had expressed my desire to get the Yoda sneakers. J too, loved these shoes (I love being married to a fellow Star Wars fan) and we joked about getting matching his and hers pairs.
Unfortunately, these limited edition shoes were available only at select Adidas stores, and sold out quickly in my area.
eBay to the rescue!
With J’s birthday coming up, I set up an eBay alert for the shoes in his size. And as luck would have it, a pair became available just one week before his birthday.
I quickly hit the “Buy It Now” button and proceeded to checkout.
J’s shoes arrived today and boy are they GORGEOUS! I was a bit put-off by the packaging (I would’ve preferred a nice box) but the level of detail in the shoes is well worth the price.
It’s too bad that the smallest size is a men’s size 7 (I wear a men’s size 5) because I would love a pair of my own.
In addition to the sneakers, I also gifted my husband with a PS3, two games for the new console, and cooked him a 4-course dinner. I’m uncomfortable receiving gifts, but I love spoiling my loved ones when it comes to special occassions. And judging from his reactions, I think I did a pretty good job this year.
I also gifted him one last present — perhaps the best one of them all — but that warrants a blog post by itself which I promise will write in the near future.
