oh yeah, i actually prefer the bleached/dirtied frontside to the more pristine green rear. its just typically under normal circumstances they tend to wear a little more evenly and theres a very sharp transition...kind of like a tan line. but im cool with it, been using it all week
alrite, well if any of you recall several months ago my cat peed on my green briefcase and after trying everything (handwashing with detergent, enzyme spray, etc) the smell remained and eventually i threw it out onto my deck beneath an awning in disgust. i couldnt really bring myself to throw it out but it was also very much not useable. there it sat all summer long until i cleaned things up this past week and was ready to toss it for good when, lo and behold i picked it...

Dont post often but thought I'd share my pair. They're on year 4. Resoled twice locally. Original laces but as you can tell they badly need to be replaced so a new pair is on the way. Been through hell and back and I love them dearly. Sorry but I kind of have to laugh about people freaking out about minor scuffs  or this and that.
