Rod Laver at the 25 year mark, just put some fresh laces in there.


If you look very carefully you can just about see where the midsole is starting to perish.


Tennis shoes which look better with age...?

I complain about my mother in law ( think we all do ?? )  But when she sends me pics like this from Japan asking if a US9 is ok I feel a bit bad about all those times I complained about the dead duck hanging from my kitchen or the strangers  ( to me  ) she sends to stay in my house

Lofgren Champion sneakers; perhaps about a year on. Replaced the inner heel cup with leather at Dr. Sole. The top of the backstay is fraying, need to patch that too. The rubber however is showing no signs of breaking at the edge of the ball of the foot, at a point when my Converse and Vans would already be cracked there and tearing a hole into the canvas.

Wore these every day in summer here (May-October), sometimes on all-day walking trips and hiking in the mountains:
