pound;160 Prada Shoes - in Year 9

coolsasacucumber: In the middle of their growth spurts, and a lot of our Year 9s have Prada shoes, pound;160, but late, no homework, intention of doing school work , no penpenciljournal etc.


I would find a kid who has my size feet and isn't too smelly... follow them to PE and steal the shoes while they are out chasing some ball somewhere...

pedagog: I would 'accidentally' stomp on the Pradas with my Doc Martens

bludedart: Why couldn't they have put the little madam in a pair of Clarke's Mary Janes, like the girls wore when I was at school. None of this designer rubbish then.
