My DS just turned 8. I cannot figure out how or why he keeps getting holes in his sneakers. Always on the same foot in the same spot (inside big toe area). He gradually wears through all layers of the sneaker right in that same spot. I just bought him new sneakers about 2-3 months ago, and he has already worn a hole through them. I have bought at least 3 pairs of sneakers all in the same size over the course of the past year because he wears a hole through them before he outgrows them. I cannot figure it out!!! It has become a rather expensive problem too, even though I refuse to buy him expensive name brand shoes precisely because of this issue. He swears he doesn't pick at it with his fingers, and based on how it wears, i don't think he does. I thought for a long time that he was maybe dragging his foot when he stopped his scooter or bike, but that theory is now out the window because it has been a long time since he's been outside playing like that (too cold!) and here he is with another hole in his shoe. Things that make you go hmmm...
My two girls have never worn a hole through anything in their lives!!!
