A new pair of back to school sneakers for Mario who can't wait to go back to school!!!

Posted Sep 4, 2017
Mario would like a pair of shoes for his wish. He found a pair online that he absolutely LOVES. Some of the other boys in his cottage wear them and he thinks they are cool. He’s at that age where he has to be perfect before walking out the door so a nice looking pair of shoes would be an awesome addition to his back to school wardrobe.

One simple wish and Suzanne, Thank you so much for Mario's back to school shoes, he was so excited. He went out this weekend and bought a shoe cleaning kit so he can keep them white and shiny. Mario said by far this are the best shoes he's ever had!!!! Thanks
