Retro-Wednesday........




No...These just aren't a pair of old sneakers!
These are Nike Legends!!!
I've had these since 1986, and they are pristine.
If I had a better camera you could see what great shape they are still in.
I' have about 2 dozen pair of Tennis Shoes, and I rotate them.
See the heels? Not wore down a bit!
High tops are NOT stylish I know, but the support is MUCH better!!
Peace...!!!

Okay! So, you're wearing 22-year old sneakers? How is that possible? I've had sneakers wear out (including worn heels), fall apart, dry rot, and otherwise disintegrate in way less time than that. Apparently, rotation is the key. Hmmmm.:)

I get 1, 2 years tops out of a pair of sneakers. Can't say I have ever had so many sneakers to rotate so as not to put to much wear and tare on them. Tell me, how often do you rotate your tires?

Your camera did good enough, you can tell these shoes are in fine shape.

Hi Shere, I waterproof them, and do not store them in the light. Rotation IS the key...xo
