    That was an awesome song, loved the music. Not trying to be racist, but I wish it was in English so I could get the full experience.

    Sorry, I usually just browse pictures these days.

    Result of my experiment was that regular, non enzyme detergent (not woolite) in a 1-2 day soak worked best. Grays are most likely to bleed (unfortunately), and if you catch it early enough, you might prevent permanent damage, so vigilance in those first couple hours is critical. Some people swear by pre-treatments, and there are a few I can recommend by PM, since they were shared with me confidentially. Sometimes they work, sometimes not. Sometimes they accelerate the leakage.

    It's always risky.

    They're a J. Crew x New Balance 1400 Made in USA collaboration.
    J. Crew's favorite model is the 1400 and NB heads (like myself) go nuts for pairs. They have something like 20+ collab colorways with New Balance, not just with the 1400. They do collabs on the 998 and 990 often (check their site, you'll see what I'm talking about).
    ANY made in USA or UK New Balance is ALWAYS a pick up, I promise. Below is my exact pair of these...

    This made me laugh. My wife asked why I was laughing and was fairly disgusted when I told her. Not sure she understands this interest of mine (thrifting, not man pee).

    Thanks everyone for the help, I'll get my rubber gloves on quick smart.

    I guess I was strictly talking for personal, not flippy. US and UK made has a very cult following. Flips are all over (depending on model number).
