For years I've tried to keep my footwear fresh whatever the circumstances, even if it means carrying some baby-wipes and toothbrush. I even recall one day whilst shopping some years ago along Oxford Street in London it began to rain cats and dogs while I was wearing gleaming all white Nike AF1s. I headed straight to JD SPORTS to buy another pair of more durable rain-friendly sneaks so I could bust them immediately and keep the AF1s fresh. You gotta do what you gotta do - it was either that or go barefoot (I'm sure my fellow footwear freaks will understand my dilemma here.)
So suffice to say I was flabbergasted recently to see that NIKE now sell super duper limited edition sneakers WITH READY MADE SCUFFS! They gotta be kidding me right??
