    I am originally from Chicago I live in Indiana now I no so sad for me but I got on your web to see if I could purchase a pair of Chicago Bears recline gym shoes for my Husband he has been a fan since the age of 5 whether thay do good or bad he is a number one fan but I have been on every web site four two weeks and still can’t find any, his pair has seen better days, he has painted them he has bought new shoe laces, they are his favorite shoes, they are the white with the Chicago C on the side, even if I got close to those, I would just like to get him these for Christmas he is a great father and wonderful Husband of 27 years. If you can help me out it would be greatly appreciated he wears a 101/2 if you find a place where I can buy him a pair please let me know, I know it would make his Christmas he never thinks of himself always his family, I am his no 1 fan.
