Lots of people do that, not a lot of people get fades like yours in the amount of time you have spent wearing them. You must have magic sweat or something. Well done, they look awesome, can't wait to see more shots in a few months.
I guess so, running shoes just look so "futuristic" these days that IMO they look pretty goofy unless you're using them for what they're intended for. They're comfy as shit though, I was all about the AM360 when they first came out.
