The 'kicks that won't tear apart'.
Is it worth the wait? If you want to buy a durable pair of shoes, the answer is: definitely. We don’t think it’s possible to claim that any sneaker is “the most durable sneaker ever", 'cause there are too many variables. However, it is possible to set some very safe bets. Based on the quality of the leather and the care of craftsmanship in this pair, we can say it isn’t just about owner satisfaction or luxury. It’s about social responsibility.
So, yes, if you're looking for a pair of sneakers that — besides being the current 'hype' — will be there for the long haul, this is the one to cop.
