If Zero didn't steal the shoes and bought them, he would have never ended up at Camp Green Lake; a prison facility for juveniles, that ironically has not lake at all. If he never stole the shoes, left them on the car for them to fall into Stanley's hands, he and Stanley would never be at Camp Green Lake. So next time, BUY the shoes don't steal them. But on the other hand, he and Stanley would never meet. Which would you choose, never meeting your best friend, or going to prison? You make the decision.
