He was obviously a bit surprised to find you there.

"Are those the hundred dollar sneakers that I didn't buy for you, and told you not to buy?"
Kevin admits that they are. However, he also claims you didn't forbid him to buy them - you told him he couldn't take money out of his savings account for them. And he did buy them - he still has the receipt.
Upon questioning, he had a bit of Christmas money left, he'd saved the last couple of weeks allowance, and had done some extra chores for you, your wife, and his grandparents, and had finally sold a few of his rarer collectible cards to come up with the money.
You are absolutely, positively, (95%) positive you told him he could NOT have those shoes, not just not to take the money out of his savings account, because it's silly to spend $100 on shoes he'll outgrow in six months. You're also wondering about the extra money you'd given him to go to the movie last weekend when he was moping about being broke.
So, are the shoes going to be Kevin's only red this afternoon?
