    I\'m retiring.....

    My Nikes..... /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
    My work shoes are getting retired, my running shoes are getting bumped down to work shoes because I got new runners. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    [​IMG] Old nikes holes and all... they have seen their last days and let in to many sparks from the welders /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    [​IMG] New work shoes, old runners

    [​IMG] new runners

    Its been a long time coming, I bought these in HS, they are probley close to 9/10 yers old, worn daily, no tread, the sole is starting to come off one and they both have holes in the front.
    IF anyone has seen both of these pics and haven't noticed yet, they are not the same shoes....
    Junior year I bought a pair and Senior year I bought new pair. About 2 years ago the left one of one pair and the right one of the other pair, the air pockets let go... this is Lefty and Righty from different pairs... close enough I wore them for 2 years before anyone noticed, and over a year before I noticed /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Anyone else cycle shoes /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    If you have made it this far you are either /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif or /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    I like to wear shoes untill about they fall apart. I have some nicer shoes for work and some shoes that I wear at home and yet another pair that I wear when working in the garage and stuff.
