Kicks shining a player's shoes

If the player buys his services for 500 Bells, Kicks' shoe-shine will change the color the player's shoes to match his or her hair or outfit (not including pattern-made shirts which produce the defaults). If the shoes do not change colors, Kicks will not charge for his services. There are only a select number of shoe patterns which can match each hair and outfit combo. He can match by style or by what color you're wearing. The name "Kicks" is a pun on the slang word for tennis shoes, "kicks." He only comes on fair weather days. Even if the player time travels, Kicks will still appear.
