I caught this post a while back on At One's Discretionand couldn't get the image of these perfectly worn-in Vans out of my mind.
Everyone has to have something comparable in their closet and each of those items have a story to tell. Mine would be my black Chuck Taylors, who have been with me for the last 10 years. Yes, 10 years. They were around to see Rocket From The Crypt and Black Flag at the Casbah and they've been to Spain twice as well as London and Greece. They only get better looking with age, just like those Vans. Do you have anything that's perfectly worn in with many a memory attached?
