    anything/something

    I wonder which one is correct to use in the sentence below, "anything" or "something"?
    If both of them are correct, what difference is there between the two sentences using "anything" and "something" respectively?

    As always, thank you very much for your help!!


    A: Mom! This store has a clearance sale on footwear. My shoes are worn out.
    B: What? I just bought you brand-new shoes last month.
    A: Those were basketball shoes. I need a new pair of sneakers.
    B: Well. Letís go there and see if they have anything good.

    Both are correct- 'anything' is wider in meaning, while 'something' is more specific.
