Worn In: New Balance Running Shoes

I love this post over on SecretForts, where the author, James, talks about receiving a pair of his dad's New Balance running shoes at the age of 8, which he still wears today.  It's definitely worth a read.  Check out how well-loved those babies are now:





If only I had been so thoughtful at such a young age... I might have hung on to my rad checkerboard slip-on Vans or my first pair of Chucks.

What a cool story. Wish I would've held onto some of my own sneaks too. I've saved Penelope's and Kostas' Tretorns, Vans, Converse and Superga's so far. Hoping to make a cool box frame collage or something with them. Only bummer is I thought of this after getting rid of Penelope's first New Balance–they looked just like these.
